Whiner of the Month for March.....

The whiniest of whiny in the last few Marches have been none other than the anti-war protesters. They had a big downtown march, as glorified in (where else?) Excalibur (or should I say anarchistcalibur):

"The student contingent at the rally saw several groups come out, including members of the University of Toronto's Students for Peace in Iraq and York's Grassroots Anti-Imperialist Network (GRAIN).

'I think it's such a dirty thing that they are doing in Iraq, and I think they should get the troops out now. It's been too long and it shouldn't have been done in the first place,' said Katherine Lei, a first-year student and a member of the UofT group."


My rule for whiners: In order to comment authoritatively on the situation in Iraq, you need to meet the following criteria:

1. Can successfully locate Iraq on a map.

(You'd be surprised how many people at a rally cannot in fact do this.)

2. Have studied political science or history for a leeeeeetle bit longer than a year.

3. Have an understanding of Iraq that predates the Gulf wars.

4. Can justify your position as to the morality of war with a better rationale that "it's such a dirty thing".

5. Can rationalize why it was in fact, not a bad thing that Saddam used to massacre his own people by the thousand.

Once you fit the following five criteria, you can be classified as a certifiable nutcase. Until that point, if a person chooses to insist on defining liberation as bad and oppression as good, without anything substantial to back it up, then that person, like the airheaded protester above, is in fact, a WHINER!

whine

• noun 1 a long, high-pitched complaining cry. 2 a long, high-pitched unpleasant sound. 3 a feeble or petulant complaint.

• verb 1 give or make a whine. 2 complain in a feeble or petulant way.

I can really think of no more 'feeble' way of complaining than through an anonymous blog. In fact, your entire blog is merely complaining about those you are ideologically or politically opposed. Im sure Im not the first whose brought this irony yo your attention.

This medium, albeit popular, is a fairly cowardly and self-righteous vehicle for conveying a message or even your views. You speak ( or type) as if you have such authority, when really who are you? You just graduated from york which makes you equivalent to an intellectual midget (btw, I also recently graduated from York - I atleast attempt to maintain humility).

Also, with all you political critiques of what you deem the 'Left', you constantly resort to rhetoric or some lame form of humour/ wit, like sarcasm to detract against your adversaries. I frankly find your opinions to be equally, if not more vacuous than those you incessantly criticize.
Where do you ever list statistics, sources? You just repost other snotty diatribes from like-minded bloggers.

Cmon 'Ordinary Former York Student' - btw, Im sure far-right, libertarian, apologist for imperialism and zionism doesnt qualify isnt the 'norm' of a student at York, or at most institutions - maybe you should change your 'whiner' columns to 'people im vexed with' or 'people I disagree with'.
