Longtime Patterico reader carlitos waded into the comments at the Malkin-hating Liberal Avenger web site recently. Commenting as “carlito,” he took on the liberals there for their unbelievably ridiculous use of an Allahpundit parody as evidence of his hate speech for Catholics. The discussion moved into abortion, and soon carlito found that one of his comments had been altered by one of the blog’s hosts, to add this disgusting passage (content warning):
Still, there are some valid and acceptable reasons to have abortions – reasons I think we can all agree with. For example, when my sister and I were in Junior high school we used to experiment sexually – you know, the usual stuff that horny, young brothers and sisters do: rimming, finger-fucking, dry humping, etc. We practically spent the entire summer between 7th and 8th grade in bed – it was great. Of course, by the end of the summer my sister was pregnant. Given our age and maturity levels, we knew she had to get an abortion. Fortunately at that time our state still recognized women’s health as an important social service and access to safe, inexpensive abortions was easy. To this day I wonder what our lives would have been like had my sister carried our baby to term.
I guess what I am saying is that, yes, I understand that there are RARE circumstances above and beyond the usual pregnancy-as-the-result-of-rape and endangers-the-life-of-the-mother that require abortions and should remain available.
I’m glad that I came here to discuss this with you folks. This conversation has forced me to really think this through and I feel far more comfortable with myself and with the subject in general. Thanks!
I have corresponded with carlito and he says that he did not write a word of this.
Understand clearly: this is not a comment left by another commenter spoofing carlito. carlito’s comment was edited by someone with posting privileges at Liberal Avenger.
Someone has partially come to their senses over there, and removed the comment. But I saved a screenshot for posterity:
Now, there’s a large group of people who post at that site, so we can’t assume that Liberal Avenger himself did this. But if one of my guest posters did something like this, I wouldn’t just remove the comment and stay quiet. I’d find out who did it, and I would can that guest poster — and if nobody ‘fessed up, I’d can them all, until someone admitted it.
And I’d apologize.
But that’s just me. Obviously. Since none of these actions appear to have occurred over there.
Tell Liberal Avenger what you think of this here — until he closes comments again, that is.
