You know why I’m posting this? Because roughly once I week come across a comment where someone is either wondering what happened to Richard Metzger or wondering when the site started taking on a more lefty political bent and demanding his return because of that. No, really. I get these comments and everything about them is wrong. First, Richard Metzger left Disinfo more than a decade ago. Seriously, it’s been over ten years. He started a way more successful site called Dangerous Minds and if you’re a fan of this site and haven’t figured that out yet…what the fuck is wrong with you? Dangerous Minds has been around for nearly 9 years now.
Secondly, he hates Republicans waaaaay more than I do. When Dangerous Minds first started, half the content was straight up “Fuck the GOP!” fare. Don’t believe me, here’s a fun quote:
“I make no bones over the fact that I hate Republicans. I hate them. Loathe ‘em. All of them. If you call yourself a Republican and I’m not related to you by blood, you can just go fuck yourself. Right now. I can’t be any more clear on that, can I? Anyone who self-identifies as “a Republican,” you’re an idiot, and you’re clearly not bright enough to know that you’re an idiot, either, which must be a real disadvantage for you as you make your way through life.”
Even I find that quote a tinge on the tasteless side (although I think Dangerous Minds was actually better when they trashed Republicans constantly), so please stop making these comments, they’re insane. Also, I don’t even want to be talking about politics. My specialty is spirituality. The problem is that when a political party starts cutting food stamps in favor of tax breaks for rich people and creepy military spending, it’s now my place to point out that this is so out of tune of any of your spiritual teachers it’s ridiculous. This is not what Jesus, Muhammed, or Buddha, had in mind. Might want to read those books again. It all comes from the same place, and whoever’s selling you that toxic shit show is dangerously out of touch with that place. As a sorcerer, it would be impossible for me not to point this out with what’s going on currently. My hands are tied here. Sorry.
