BattleSwarmBlog Celebrates Victory Over Amanda Marcotte Day

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

After spending days pointing out Amanda Marcotte’s factual and intellectual fallacies over the unraveling Rolling Stone UVA rape story on Twitter, this finally happened:

AM

I love the smell of Amanda Marcotte blocking me in the morning. It smells like…victory.

Henceforth, December 11, 2014 shall be known as “Victory Over Amanda Marcotte” day.

Washington Post “Fact-Checks” An SNL Skit

Monday, November 24th, 2014

You know that Saturday Night Live Schoolhouse Rock parody I put up yesterday?

The Washington Post actually put up fact-checking piece on it.

Hey, remember all those times the Washington Post fact-checked SNL skits of George W. Bush and Sarah Palin?

Me neither.

Twitchy had a field day.

Other important Washington Post fact-checks:

The lengths to which Obama’s media praetorian guard will go to protect him are officially beyond parody.

Twitter Suspends @Nero’s Twitter Account

Monday, November 10th, 2014

It seems that the Social Justice Warriors fighting #GamerGate have temporarily taken another scalp in getting the Twitter account of Milo Yiannopoulos (@Nero) suspended. The acerbic gay British journalist was constantly reporting on the nefarious goings-on of the anti-#GamerGate gang.

Of course, they couldn’t get him suspended from his gig at Breitbart nor his own blog, so it’s rather a Pyrrhic victory.

My guess is that Twitter will restate his account in less than a day, and this will set off a new round of #GamerGate enthusiasm for exposing the corruption in gamer journalism.

It also proves, once again, that Social Justice Warriors can only win arguments when they can pressure others into silencing the voices of their critics.

10 AM Followup: My guess proved correct, as Twitter has restored his account:

Adventures With Wendy Davis Social Media

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

The fun just won’t stop!

So first the Wendy Davis Twitter account posted this:

Oops!

Then hilarity ensued.

Anyone can make a mistake. But as of this writing, the Wendy Davis Twitter account still hasn’t apologized for stealing a Virginia college Republican photo and claiming it as their own…

In Which I Pwn Liberal Tweeter @2miche

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

“Daddy, what did you do during the Twitter Wars?”

I offer up the following example of countering the usual “The evil Koch brothers outspend everyone!” liberal talking point, and how quickly Democrats turn tale and run when faced with actual facts. All tweets verbatim. (Including a few of my own typos. Mea culpa. I plead Twitter.)

And then I posted this:

Not in this thread, but worth noting for the future, is how liberals like to bring up Koch “dark money” donations, but then conveniently omit mention of left-leaning dark money operations like Patriot Majority USA. Indeed, as of November last year, liberal money made up 70% of dark money spending.

In Which I Make Fun of Matthew Yglesias’ Fashion Choices

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

If you haven’t see Matthew Yglesias’ purple plaid sports coat and pastel plaid tie combination (which has been making the rounds for a while now), it is something to behold:

Both Kurt Schlichter and I chimed in on it:

It’s Labor Day Weekend, so this is what you get instead of actual content…
