There's just a meanness in this world

YouTube is flooded with people poking fun at a 11 year old girl who posted a couple of videos where she appears to be more than a little troubled (and with an idiot daddy like the one who appears in one of those videos, how could she not be?). I don't get it. Why do people want to tease and insult a troubled child? What a vicious, sad, pathetic bunch they are. But, alas, I'm not surprised. There's just a meanness in this world, that's all.

Peace, brothers and sisters. Peace. And people do grow up, sometimes, and become penguins.

-- Badtux the Saddened Penguin


  1. Not seen the video but it still pisses me off, enough to sic the mad penguin upon them. Rest in peace...

  2. Rush made fun of Obama's kids. McShame made fun of Chelsea Clinton when she was a kid.

    It's just part of the right wing way of doing things.


  3. I did see that video, I was rather stunned. I could not figure out why a mere child was being internet hounded, you are right, the world getting so gratuitously mean makes me glad I am old and won't have any longer than necessary to watch.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
