Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, May 18, 2017

Not to alarm you, but I probably want you to quit your job, or at least take a demotion. Statistically speaking, you are probably taking up room that should go to someone else. If you are a white cis man (meaning you identify as male and you were assigned male at birth) you almost certainly should resign from your position of power. That's right, please quit. Too difficult? Well, as a first step, at least get off your hiring committee, your curriculum committee, and make sure you're replaced by a woman of color or trans person. Don't have any in your department? HOW SHOCKING.

I wonder if RCade will give up the Drudge to a minority? Seems reasonable, both Drudges are white cis men .....

How can you tell? It is saying ridiculous things. But no less ridiculous than what others who obsess over "representation" tend to say. If it is satire, it is too close to the actual target to be funny.

Clicking on a few of the links on the site to previous articles and information on their goals, I don't this is satire. Most satire sites admit to being one if you click on the "about" link.

#2 It is obviously over the top to the point of being silly.

I would encourage you not to feel so persecuted.

They posted an addendum actually saying it was over the top provocation to think.

Maybe think about why it is so threatening to you at all. If it was let be, then it would not have been given so much publicity.

You have 10 or 12 corrupt white presidents and suddenly all white people are suspect.

I didn't say I was offended. Stop being a moron.

Re #4- "Over the top provocation" isn't the same as satire. The author believes there is a point to this. Just so you know.

Given what a butt kisser you are, I don't want anything to do with what is on the tip of your tongue.

Great to see you're so calm and rational about the whole thing.

"Just so you know." Yes. They are not comedic geniuses. Maybe it's sarcasm. In any case, nobody needs to quit their job.

The conversation stopped being rational when you waddled in and started putting up strawmen regarding how other people feel.

There is nothing irrational in pointing out that someone who is acting like a moron is acting like a moron. Sure, I could have said it more politely but given that your behavior was stupid and rude, I chose not to be.

Also, the author is still not claiming that this is a joke no matter how badly you want to pretend otherwise.

You're a scared white man. Own it. Don't legend you're not.
