Blog-diot of the Week

Being curious on how my moniker "BigBuddhaPuppy" shows up on Google, I did a search this morning and I came up with an email response from May 25th, 2005 by Michael Moriarty, which he decided not to send to me but it was posted on http://www.enterstageright.com

So being in the holiday spirit, I thought I would reply to Michael Moriarty's personal attack on me...that seems to be par for the course when people don't have any substantive response.
Here is the article I responded to...
The following I am blue, Mr. Moriarty is red...

Right-minded ideology could do without the hyperbole of a certain Michael Moriatry. Atheists can't but half love and on the way if they love somewhat to being Christian? Socialism equates to Clinton which equates to Democrats...then "internationalism"...then "Napolean-ism"..Communism...Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Tito, ...back to "Democratic Party's great black hope -- Illinois Senator Barack Obama"? The connections are idiotic.

Here's one...TV...Anti-Christian...Law And Order...Michael Moriatry...New York Stage Play...Homosexual Agenda...Liberal...East Coast Bias...Hollywood...Michael Moriatry...
We must stop Michael Moriatry in his anti-christian, Hollywood, liberal, socialist, un-American homosexual agenda!
All the Best,
Big BuddhaPuppy

I recently received my first hate letter from a self-proclaimed homophobe. His e-mail announces "Big Buddha" but, for now, let's just call him Big Bubba.

First, I find this idiotic response to my satirical email to your article from over 7 months ago via Google, it would be more fitting if you could have responded to me as well as your readers. My name is *****, but as many do on the internet we use nicknames...

He writes: "We must stop Michael Moriatry (sic) in his anti-christian, Hollywood, liberal, socialist, un-American homosexual agenda!"

I did write that, it was an example how far hyperbole espoused in your article could go and often unfortunately does go...

"Puppy" is also in his title and self-image, so to speak. Well, puppies don't use words like "hyperbole"…. so, who is hyperbolizing who here? Had he used the word "sarcasm," I might have fallen for the role-playing, but since theater is my profession and homosexuality almost its middle name, I think we've got theater games going on here. By the way, I wish he'd spell my name right, but red-necked Buddhists can't spell on purpose. It's kind of a Zen thing.

BigBuddhaPuppy is just a nickname, actually it is what one of my pups looks like when sitting, like a "big buddha puppy"....my self-image has nothing to do with it, another overreach on your part, just as the idea of me being "red-necked"...but when a person has nothing of note to say they just attack, please try some substance next time...

Maybe he's Janet Reno in drag. There's a free speech issue here and we all know how she felt about the First Amendment and television -- or at least I know from first-hand experience. I saw her in action behind closed doors in that Washington boardroom in 1993.

Janet Reno in drag...funny...

I don't mind the sexual labels. If you're an actor, the "lavender brush" is often applied. Yet in Big Bubba's context, hyperbole is a euphemism for lying. Gee, Bubba, I bet you wrestle alligators too.

Do you have any substantive to say?

So we either have an honest-to-god red-necked caveman who's demanding I resign from the human race, or a liberal agent provocateur posing as a right-wing hatemonger to besmirch the conservative movement. Bubba has enough of a lexicon to toss "hyperbole" on the page while, at the same time, deliberately misspelling my name. Now, someone from this milieu would likely be unfamiliar with the word and pronounce it "hyperbowl", figuring it was some kind of "Bowl-a-Rama" club. So I smell a liberal "mole" in his hole.

Not red necked cavemen...not a liberal agent provocateur...a person who responded to your inane hyperbole and faulty connections within your article...Can you say anything substantive? I am still waiting?

If I "must be stopped," then I guess I pose a threat of some kind. Like Ronald Reagan, I was once a liberal. But as we all know, a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged. That I know the enemy as well as President Reagan did, and have tracked it to its lair (the French Revolution) means I pose a real threat to Liberals, so Bubba's homophobia could very well be a cover used to divide his conservative enemies into Christian fundamentalists and fully equipped conservative soldiers.

Conspiracy theory now? Again, my email was satirical example on how shoddy your reasoning was...

Regular readers of Enter Stage Right, like Steve Farrell, author of Dark Rose -- a classic Christian novel (an inspirational story about the redemption of four tortured souls), were particularly appreciative of what Bubba calls my hyperbole. If Bubba also reads ESR regularly, then there's more than enough Christian sacrilege for him to pick on.

Pick on? No, to point out faulty arguments, yes.

So why did he pick me me? And if I must be stopped, how does bubba propose to do that? His e-mail was forwarded to me, so ESR read the letter as well. Bubba understands all the connections I made in my recent editorial and they're not rumbling his homophobia. They're hitting home at the depth of the socialist disease we're battling. He knows they go to the heart of what he might be paid to defend.

Pick on? No, again, to point out your faulty logic...
Happy Holidays, BigBuddhaPuppy(*****)
