Ever Notice This Connection?

I have recently come to the undeniable conclusion that the right-wing nutballs in this country are much more illiterate than those of us on the more progressive side of the American culture war.

First of all, there has been a huge number of people over the last year or so who have come to our humble blog – specifically to the ‘Outlaw Racist Flags‘ post – by searching the term ‘natzi’ or ‘natzi flag’. There is a right-wing commenter on this post who misspelled Nazi by inserting an extraneous ‘t’. Hence, it has become a magnet to all those right-wing illiterate folks in search of a Nazi flag they can call their own.

The misspelled term is searched so frequently – every single day – that I began to suspect there was a certain commonality among those who would want to search such a term. Then I began reading some of the right-wing comments made on other posts of ours. Their spelling and grammatical errors were so numerous and egregious, I nearly had a stroke upon reading them.

Putting aside my health concerns in search of more data to contribute to my developing thesis, I looked to the comments made on right-wing blogs. To my astonishment (and satisfaction), I found that it is, in fact, true that right-wing nutballs in this country are far more illiterate than their left-wing counterparts. They are more prone to repeated spelling errors (not just the occasional typo) and misuse of grammatical conventions – FAR more prone. See for yourself. Go test my theory. Well, it is admitedly hard to find any right-wing blogs with any significant number of comments. . . must be an indication of low readership.

Some of my findings:

“Of course…your all biased.”

“When you’re a happy, optomistic, successful person… People tend to want to be around happy, optomistic folks…”

“I do not support the natzi way but i think your totally wrong. I have things like this only as i collect them. They show a leaders point and his determination. He is a part of history Hitler and there is nothign we can change about that. But come on its only a flag? Why cant u just leave it. Anyway theres my point. Cya”

    Hah, love that Latin. These ignorant folk of the the ReichWing cannot use English properly…

    How are they going to handle Latin?

    Not very well I would think.

    Darlene:

    First of all, I clearly express my understanding of the “occasional typo” – which is what you found in my misspelling of “admittedly.” My bad… but typos happen.

    Second of all, you have managed to write a run-on sentence in your pointing out my typo.

    I guess the occasional run-on sentence happens too, but I appreciate the FYI.
