An Atheist Educator

Some things never change in the state capital.  On the HelenaIR, there is a bit of a spirited discussion taking place regarding Obama’s legacy.  The usual suspects are rolling out their assortment of attacks on that administration, and that is certainly no surprise.  However, there has been some comment deleting going that speaks of cowardice.  As mentioned in a previous post here, dolphind3 is certainly suspect of these since pretty much anytime I respond to one of his always-specious comments, my reply will disappear.

Now it looks like dietz1963 is doing the same.  After the fiasco of a few weeks ago where the editor was contacted by many, I am pretty sure that dietz1963 was just counseled not to interact with me.  While I haven’t been on his case in a while, I have pointed out the flaws in his reasoning on this current thread.  After a diatribe of his about Obama I reminded him that he is a Carson supported and listed the goofy stuff that Carson has said and ask him to write Carson’s likely legacy.  That comment was deleted.  Here it is:

dietz1963, we get it, you don’t like the current president but your solution is to back a guy who says

– the Big Bang is a “fairy tale”
– Darwin was guided by Satan
– the pyramids were not tombs but grain silos
– supports unconstitutional religious tests to prevent Muslims from serving in public office
– being g@y must be choice since so many people come out of prison g@y

and he subscribes to a religion that thought the world was going to end and when it didn’t they called that non-event “Great Disappointment.”

Care to write what his legacy would be should he be elected?

The truth, as always, is painful to the cowardly.




As the dust settles over on the HelenaIR we have commenter dolphind3 crawling out from under his rock and dropping his stinky little loads in a variety for thread.  After the fiasco of a few weeks ago where I had many dozens of comments replying to him deleted as fast as I could post them, we have this low-life saying this on a thread:

dolphind3 – February 04, 2016 9:18 pm  Don’t like it then don’t read it. Don’t try to silence those you don’t agree with. How communist of you.

It was blatantly obvious that it was this cretin who was deleting my comments.  It appears that he cannot take his own advice so we bestow upon him the award:

Hypocrite of the Week

Awarded to


for actions that set a new standard
of cowardly and two-faced behavior

dolphind3, if you are upset about this award, why not call your friends in law enforcement and and sic them on me?   Hahahahaha!


The issue of abortion is always sure to bring out emotions in an online discussion.  What would be nice is if we could have a real discussion instead of the usual ad hominems.

Over on the Billings Gazette there was story about a bunch of Christians, a couple hundred, marching and protesting abortion.  The comments flowed in the usual manner with some saying Christians should mind their own business and others telling us these “murders” must be stopped.

Where online discussions go off the rails is when the focus switches from the issue at hand to personal attacks on other commenters.  The leaders in these effort are Ohwell and jayjack.

I ran into Ohwell a long time ago and he still seems to seething over the spankings he received from be when I wielded my logic stick upon his fallacious claims.  It didn’t take him long to abandon the issues and go after others:


“Sounds like the mothers of tumbleweed, delytu, and mr. toad should have had their babies aborted.”


“Rainbowed, you are a perfect example of a mother that threw away a perfectly good baby and raised the afterbirth instead.”


“AE, you sound like a woman that went thru many abortions, but then you are the one that always claims to have committed the “unforgivable sin”, so why would someone like you care about what happens to any child. To bad your mother didn’t have enough sense to have you aborted.”
“nm and AE, more examples of mothers raising the afterbirth.”
“Give it up jayjack, when dealing with satanist such as press, rainbowed, and ae, the comment lists will go on and on. These people would sacrifice a child to their god if law permitted it. Yes, they say that they’re atheists but AE’s sight, at one time, said she worshipped satan.”
Then we have these gems from jayjack, with this first quote invoking Godwin’s Law:
“Wrong, if evolution is true, then nothing in the here and now, other than survival of the fittest, get what you can for yourself and your progeny matters. Hitler was a firm believer in this ideology, it was part of his rationale for murder. Sound familiar? Hitler was a big fan of abortion, you are in good company.”
“Your lack of comprehension is amazing…..Your tirades barely mask your selfish, self-serving attitude about others.”
“…Typical clueless, ignorant, selfish, self-serving liberal.”
and this classic proclamation:
“History is replete with murderous thugs like you. Yet again you prove your ignorance.”
“Murderous thugs?”
Where these two exhibit their extreme weakness on the issue is their not responding to the ISSUES and examining the unintended consequences of “personhood,” a position they are taking.  They know that when the public is confronted with the likelihood of homicide investigations into miscarriages and the outlawing of many forms of birth control along with most fertility treatments, the public will not be swayed by these Pleas to Emotion.
Ohwell’s claim that I am a Satan worshiper were laughed at.  I demanded some proof and he said he couldn’t provide it because
“Can’t you old biddy, you changed your site.”
“Good job you old biddy, you blocked your site too.”
But here the site is.  It’s obvious we aren’t dealing with the sharpest tool in the shed.

It’s been really frustrating commenting at the HelenaIR.  I would say that 75% of my comments are removed for no reason.  Yes, I write offline and repost them only to have them removed again.  The time and energy required makes further commenting in that venue simply not worth it until they change their policies.  And with a new college semester starting next week, who is going to have the time?

And a challenge to the coward, dolphind3, who was doing most of the deleting of my comments, go ahead and reply to this and we can settle our differences about football through email, in private.



The HelenaIR has a story about a local sheriff’s office deputy who who is in a bit of hot water:

Local officer arrested on suspicion of pulling gun while drunk

The number of comments went over 100 in about 18 hours after it posted, a sort of record.  There are the expected law enforcement apologists along with those from the lynch mob.

A familiar voice, dolphind3, showed up requesting:

“I suggest that the IR police these comments closely before it gets out of control.”

I reminded him:

Ah, yes. Last March, dolphind3 disagreed with something I wrote (about football) and tried to round up a “posse” to have me fired from my job:

“It has been done before. My identity is hardly a secret, many people in daily life often comment to me about what they see online and thank me for my support of the Sherriff to putting trolls like this in his place. This includes officials with the state and carroll and also law enforcement. It is time that this bullying is stopped.”

dolphind3, I suggest that it is you who gets “out of control.”

That comment has been deleted a few times and I continue to repost it.

Yes, the truth is painful to some.

The master of comment deletion was again busy on the HelenaIR, this time on thread “Obama: ‘Not a plot to take away everybody’s guns.'”  He was, again, getting his stuffing kicked out of him and in response went nutz deleting comments.  Just like on the “Decoding the Donald” thread, the editors responded by shutting the commenting down.

These action of his are pure cowardice.  He’s been called out at least twice to meet, face-to-face, with those he attacks online, and shrivels away for doing so.  He has been invited to comment here and he refuses to do so.

The guy has proven himself to be a cyber-coward and is likely one in real-life as well.  For all his tough talk, he’s a wimp who won’t stand up for himself.  Kung Fooey Baloney.




Over on the HelenaIR, the comments on the Decoding the Donald thread have been closed.  This is thread where our village idiogot into a dust up with Twangs and twangs called him out for a meet up.  This was all covered in my post: The coward shrivels again.

During that tangle, a few made references to dietz1963 drinking habits and suggesting that he might be PWD (Posting While Drunk.)  Since this had been the topic of one of my previous posts, here and here, I posted links to them in the thread.  They were soon removed so I would repost them.  Deleted, posted, deleted, posted. It went on and on.  Then all the comments where dietz1963 acted like a tough guy but then cowered when called out to meet up Twangs were removed.

It’s a no brainer that it is dietz1963 who is doing the deleting, after all, who else but dietz1963 would care about dietz1963 being roundly pummeled?

So, I sent an email to the editor and complained about the deletions. He came back with a very nice email and said he had a solution, for now.  This appears at the bottom of that thread.

Editor’s note: Due to abuse the comment thread on this article is closed.

It’s too bad that they closed and removed commenting on that thread but I understand that, for them, it’s the easiest solution.

dietz1963 might consider it some kind of victory, however, it’s not like this will make his really drunken ramblings go away.  I will continue to pepper him with them whenever he posts something as if he knows what he is talking about, which, of course is frequently.

dietz1963, the closing of that comment thread shows that you were spanked to the max.  Get ready.  It’s only just begun.
