Moby Cop: Afrocity Becomes Targeted by Left Wing Moonbats August 18, 2009

afro blogger

I knew the day would come when the attacks on me would get personal. The moby cops have alerted me to some anti-Afrocity moonbats. Come to think of it, I have noticed an increase of moby-ish comments being made here. As you can see from the picture above, this is pretty much Afrocity in her blogging habitat, dalmatians and all. See me sleeping peacefully…laptop in starting position…just another innocent blogger.

Unbeknown to me was that Afrocity has a hater base.

Postings and comments about me from Padagon another blog.

Ways To Get Me Malcolm X On Your Ass

Batsh*t CrazyRace

A word of advice.  Well, a few words, actually.

If you are a conservative black person trying to convince the overwhelming majority of black people to stop voting for Democrats, do not call us ”original recipe dark pieces of chicken”.  Similarly, if I want you to vote for Democrats, I will not call you a retrograde shitstain on Michael Steele’s Lando Calrissian Underoos.

Deal?

Comments:

“I refuse to read anything Afrocity writes until I see his original Kenyan birth certificate.”

“OMG, on top of dehumanizing blacks , Afrocity was deeply misogynist and she is a black woman ?

Self hatred doesn’t begin to describe it. What’s next ? Afrocity is jewish and carries Obama = Hitler posters ?”


Since Panda bat mentioned shit stains, I will take a moment to mention what I think about things one finds in one’s pants but would rather not discuss.  At the point when I received an email with an animated gif of a burning cross, compliments of one of your readers, I felt the need to speak. Firstly thank you Panda for sending readers my way. Any attention is good attention. Autographed Letter Signed received over 1,000 extra hits due to your post about me. (thumbs up, wink)

Blog wars are shit stains. I do not participate in them because I feel that a person’s blog is an expression of their creativity. That being said, I will never comment or devote an entire post to a blogger. I just don’t give a fuck to be honest with you and only a loser would go trolling blogs just to find opposition material for their own blog.  I will comment about news stories or events and that is about it.  Most of my content is derived from my heart and experience as an African American woman. If anyone has a different experience great. Go blog about it.  And don’t try that moby shit. It wont work here. What is a “moby”  you may ask?

From Urban Dictionary.com

1. moby

An insidious and specialized type of left-wing troll who visits blogs and impersonates a conservative for the purpose of either spreading false rumors intended to sow dissension among conservative voters, or who purposely posts inflammatory and offensive comments for the purpose of discrediting the blog in question.

The term is derived from the name of the liberal musician Moby, who famously suggested in February of 2004 that left-wing activists engage in this type of subterfuge: “For example, you can go on all the pro-life chat rooms and say you’re an outraged right-wing voter and that you know that George Bush drove an ex-girlfriend to an abortion clinic and paid for her to get an abortion. Then you go to an anti-immigration Web site chat room and ask, ‘What’s all this about George Bush proposing amnesty for illegal aliens?’”

The strategy has been frequently attempted on conservative blogs, but has not been nearly as effective as Moby envisioned, since false rumors are easily debunked by fact-checking minions, and cartoonishly extreme commenters often get immediately identified as mobys and banned.


If you see any moby activity on my blog, please let me know. This includes if it is PUMAs

There are no “birthers” here or Death to Tiller fans.

I also despise blogs that devote themselves to hating other blogs such as the unmentionable anti-PUMA blogs.

This is the last I will speak of this, and frankly I find it humorous. But really, there are more important things for bloggers to post about than me.

Fly  along  moonbat, nothing to see here.  No one has to “convince” African Americans to stop blindly voting for Democrats. They are in a prison cell with the door wide open and no guard.  Remember, admitting you are codependent is step one.

Autographed Letter Signed,

Afrocity

    Alot of people believed that women would all vote for Hillary Clinton just because she is a woman. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Women are actually harder on other women than men. To ASSUME women voters would follow blindly along is so one-dimensional.

    Similarly, people have a hard time wrapping their brains around the idea that a ‘black person’ would not vote for Obama, just because he himself is ‘black.’

    It’s crazy! And these attacks on you are crazy. I first got to know you on some of the PUMA blogs, where, for the first time, we actually saw two factions gather together around the core principles that unite us all. It was inspirational. It has digressed a bit on some of the other blogs, but that spark is still there.

    Keep up the good work!

      Thank’s Rose for your support and holding a seat for me at the Coffee Shop chat room.

  2. wmcb Says:

    They’re idiots, afrocity. Hateful ones, too. Keep on being true to yourself. It’s all you can do.

  3. Bellamags Says:

    Afrocity,
    As you become more popular, this kind of thing is going to happen more and more and the hatred will just escalate. Time for a mental suit of armor.

  4. Bellamags Says:

    I forgot to say ITS BECAUSE YOU ARE RIGHT AND THEY KNOW IT.

  5. HT Says:

    Afrocity, don’t let the ignorami get you down. Although I often don’t agree with your position, I always appreciate the thought and heart you put into your posts, and especially the literate way with which you express them, and it is a pleasure to read you. Once upon a time, I used to read that blog, however, I gave them up last year due to my perception of their lack of objectivism and the publishing of articles which were, to my mind, of less than stellar quality. The fact that the originator was briefly a member of the Edwards campaign, and was also embroiled in an accusatory scuffle (plagiarism was one of the accusations) with WOC bloggers, was another deciding factor, and let’s not mention the publication of a book about feminism with really distasteful illustrations that involved POC (I’m caucasian, and I found them vilely reprehensible). I haven’t been back since, and frankly do not miss it.
    If you are being targeted by denizen/followers of this particular blogger, then breathe a sigh of relief. Whether they realize it or not, they are caricatures of dilettantes who do a good job of flapping their fingers. One thing they are not – liberals – in the tried and true sense of the word and my lifelong experience. True liberals do not descend to the depths of attempted character assassination/destruction that we are currently witnessing. As you indicated they are moonbats, although I think that is rather unfair to bats – lovely innocuous creatures who perform useful functions in this world.
    Chin up girl.
    Back to lurking. Keep strong, and don’t let the buzzards get you down.

    • afrocity Says:

      Thanks HT, I am flattered and I know when you step out of lurking mode- it is an honor. (Afrocity doing curtsy motion)

  6. johninca Says:

    Afrocity, it just means that they noticed you, don’t like your message, and lack the intellectual tools to refute you using wit. Name calling and profanity are about all they have.

  7. I just want to get a thousand hits on my blog! Maybe I should just say something outrageous

  8. Seriously though… keep up the good work and the good writing.

  9. garnette Says:

    Getting a thousand hits is cool, I guess it is like that old saying, doesn’t matter what they say about you as long as they spell your name (link your website) right. 🙂

  10. I’d consider their condemnation a compliment.

  11. CapeCoddah Says:

    Hey AfroCity!
    Don’t let those simpletons get you down! Be proud… there is good reason for the old saying… When you start taking flak, you know you are over the target! One cannot teach or buy class, and you have it to spare! Don’t get discouraged, you writing is wonderful, and we all look forward to it!

    BTW… those gorgeous dogs look sooooo abused!!/

  12. AfricanAgainstO Says:

    Right attitude AC – as noted here most African Americans who are not inline with the rest are ridiculed – that is why this place is my refuge. I am so used to it now though – I relish the confrontation and stupidity that is dished towards me as I always have a good come back. I have noticed lately also most of them are freaking out anyway as they are slowly finding out the Pres is just another politician (do what I say not what I do) with a Chi Town twist though.

  13. Bud White Says:

    I followed the links back through panda and then to your original post. You were not being self-loathing or racist. You were using a sophisticated metaphor using cultural stereotypes in a humorous and edgy manner. You wrote:

    “Like a KFC fried chicken dinner, one can expect the original recipe dark pieces of chicken. Blacks will give their thighs, legs and sweat for the DNC. In return they get a bland Styrofoam cup of mashed potatoes and a stale white guilt bread roll. ”

    As you well know, this appropriation of stereotypes has a long tradition. Public Enemy’s Flavor Fav is not an idiot; he just plays a clown in public. You are 10x the writer and thinker than most bloggers out there. I love you. Please keep up the brilliant work.

  14. johninca Says:

    I have been reading excerpts from historian Douglas Blackmon’s Slavery By Another Name. This book documents how southern blacks were de facto reenslaved in many cases, because police could arrest them on trumped up charges, and the victims could literally be bought and sold and subjected to forced labor.

    So history reveals yet another consequence of Southern Democrat terrorism, which succeeded in thwarting Reconstruction and getting Federal troops out of the south.

    I’m not sure how many African Americans would still vote Democrat, if they knew the true history of what Democrats have done to them. To learn these things requires work and research– much easier to pile four letter words and epithets upon dissidents like Afrocity.

  15. LJSNAustin Says:

    “No one has to “convince” African Americans to stop blindly voting for Democrats. They are in a prison cell with the door wide open and no guard.” Afrocity, what a striking visual. Your blog is getting more widely read for a reason: it is damn good and you speak from the heart. Keep it up!

  16. HT Says:

    Hey, AFC, Bud White commented here! I have a great deal of respect for Bud White. You have been given a seal of approval (and I believe Bud is a liberal, like me, except he’s better known and well respected). One suggestion – some of us hate labels, although moonbat and wingers are understandable, but please stop labeling all left leaning people as moonbats. We are not, same as all right leaning people are not wingers. Most of us lefties have rightie friends and vise versa. I’m tired of identity politics which are intended to split the populace. Most people just want a life in which they are safe, they have access to medical assistance and an educational system that will give their children an opportunity at a better life. They want to have a job that will support their family, a safe place to live and a home. IN my books, in today’s world of conspicuous consumption, celebrity worship and multi-billion bonuses to worthless CEOs, that’s not much to ask. Please just be cognizant that your readers are not all right wingers. Most conservatives that I know feel exactly the same way I do – Odd that – we can agree, yet the government is unable to form a coalition.

  17. fif Says:

    Hi Afrocity! Of course if you speak the truth and break conventional norms the zombies are going to find you and try to insult you into silence and submission. Fortunately, you are much too smart and original for that simplistic tactic. Keep being who you are–one of a kind. 🙂

  18. Scott Vickers Says:

    Speech is harassment, don’t you know? The guy in the clip below was threatened by a college’s office of affirmative action for reading a book about how Notre Dame students defeated the Klan:

  19. Holly Says:

    Afrocity,

    Your honesty, intelligence, and ingenuity of wordplay is why I enjoy and recommend your blog to anyone interested in a perspective that is beyond an ideological framework and encourages discussion. In my opinion, you fight against self-oppression and party oppression. You are a conservative voice that I love reading.

  20. bob Says:

    Me too, all of the above.

  21. Madrigal Says:

    Hey afroC! I’m glad I lurked by your blog neighborhood tonight. I’m sick & on cold meds…. so I’m not feeling very eloquent right now…but I’ll just say that I’ve always felt inspired by your blog — that you’ve come across as fair, thoughtful, funny, & honest.

    The left or right label doesn’t matter to me as much as your humanity.

    …and unfortunately, zombies are blood-suckers of the living –

    Frankly, I hope these zombie trolls that have been harassing & slandering you starve on cyber air & their own vile attitudes!

    ok, off to bed

    (p.s. love the dalmations & kitty pic!)

    Afrocity,

    I know exactly what you are going through. I have three brain dead Mobies who try constantly to post to my blog. I have comment moderation so you would think by now they would have figured out all their comments go right to the cyber crapper.

    Keep plugging away, I love your blog for its style, creativity and truth.

    Cliff

  23. Afrocity,

    Not only the level of hate but also the vapid and uneducated comments were outstanding, it would be funny if directed at me, because I honestly try to annoy people intentionally on my blog, you however don’t deserve that, you have a well written and intelligent blog, and the hate only shows that they fear you and want you to be silenced because you won’t tow their line and drink the Kool-Aid.

    Don’t worry about the hate, that just means you hit the mark and they don’t have any real argument against what you have been saying. You’ve won the argument but they don’t want to admit they lost, but deep down they know they can’t win.

    To the commentators on that happy little diatribe against Afrocity:

    Yes all Republicans are racist, that’s why it was the party that fought to end slavery and was the party that fought against the Jim Crow laws, and it was Republicans that wrote the Civil Rights Amendment, yes LBJ might have signed it but it was the Republicans that where the driving force, along with some non-southern Democrats. Always remember this you had to me a Democrat to join the KKK, read up on it sometimes and you will know I’m not lying. But no my friends it was the Republicans that are the racist ones. Tell a big lie long enough…

  24. TheRealKim Says:

    I have admired your spirit and ideals before you even started this blog. You are talented, creative and courageous as hell. I may not always agree with you, simply because at this point, I dont know if I even agree with me (used to be a confirmed liberal). But all we can do is stay true to our beliefs. Keep writing!!!

    BTW, Elderj, didn’t know you had started a blog. Headed over there now and will bookmark it!

  25. AfricanAgainstO Says:

    How do you guys create the tiny thumbnails for your usernames? By the way AC I was going though your site looking for the thumbnail generator and saw your guitar collection – as a designer though my eyes went streight to the Herman Miller Eames chair. Luck you.

    • I think it has to do with adding a gravatar or something like that.

    • afrocity Says:

      You have to sign up for WordPress.

      Thanks, I love modern furniture!!!! I have a George Nelson sofa and credenza too!!!

      • AfricanAgainstO Says:

        You are very lucky indeed – love his work also. Don’t want to make this blog into furniture design blog but I did have my two furniture designs displayed at the Chicago science and industry museum about two years ago. Sadly as the housing sunk my experiment with furniture design had to be suspended. I am sure I will be back at it when things pick up.

  26. bydesign001 Says:

    Your voice is your own and your right. If our brothers and sisters have a problem with the truth that is staring them in the face, that is on them. If they prefer to live in ignorance and in the dark, that is their problem.

    They compromise by attacking us and becoming the tools of those who label us dissenters rather than open their eyes, find their own voice and take a stand against such evil.

    It is because you possess the capability and strength to live outside of the DESIGNATED box and the ability to THINK that they view you as a threat. Rather than deal with what may some times be a daunting task of looking inward and searching for the truth, they take the coward’s way out.

    Stay strong Afrocity, it’s what we do. Someone has to speak up against the wrongs.

    You know when you’re making the grade, the voices of opposition get nastier and louder.

    You are not alone!!!!!

  27. jgregg Says:

    wow. i’ve visited your site a few times, but man, so interesting to walk into the middle of a “blog war.” stand firm. funny how conservatives (usually) don’t start this b.s., but we always finish it. lots of folks are on your side rooting for ya! thanks, again, for your honest take on things.

    Jg.

  28. mutnodjmet13 Says:

    Frankly, I have found deleting nonsense comments from mobys exhilarating on my website. You are much kinder than I!

    I have always found the level of vitriol inversely proportional to the amount of time the commenter spent reading my original post. But, I have a scientific perspective.

    Keep up your good works! You are an inspiration to many other Americans.

  29. Joanelle Says:

    Hey, kiddo – hang in there -they are being jerks because: 1. they probably don’t understand half of what you write and 2. they are jealous of the other half.

    Love, you – keep up the great writing! 🙂
