"Progressives" Discuss Ronbo's Death

Let me say first that I disagreed with many of Ronbo's views, which I found way too extreme. It was apparent that he had serious mental problems. That said, todays disgusting thread on Reddit.com was above and beyond the usual mindless venom and grave-dancing you get from these people.

Right-wing blogger kills himself to protest the existence of Muslims

Good racist fucktard. Rot in your hell. It's so nice when someone makes it easy for you to not feel bad that they are dead. His only redeeming factor is his own ignorance.

To give credit where credit is due, a few users DID attempt to bring some calm and reason to the thread:
If we (non-neo-cons) treat a misguided person's self annihilation with joy .. it doesn't really make us look like we are on the higher moral ground.

I won't celebrate his death and I most definitely think he was a fool, but this is still a victim. He believed brain-washing to such an extent that he let his life become ruled by hatred, being so devoid of any joy that he took his own life. He's a victim of the neo-cons, even if he did join them.

I do take some satisfaction in knowing that if someone was so miserable that they opted to commit suicide, at least it was a person who was a dangerous spreader of propaganda. He seemed to really believe his delusional notions, which is a lot more than I can say about those who KNOWINGLY spread lies to justify an unjust war.

Well, maybe not.

If you are not familiar with Reddit, it's a far-left news aggregation site similar to Digg, where users vote on the days top science, atheist, socialist, anti-Israeli, and liberal news stories. There are also amusing pictures and videos, and a daily USA = Nazi Germany or Bush = Hitler thread.
