Max Blumenthal Gets A Lesson In Web Etiquette


GOP Presidential Debate Smackdown? Nope. The buzz is on Blumenthal.

Max meant to be snarky. But comes off stupid silly. Or worse: An amateur.

Blumenthal on the Huffington Post hotlinked to a picture on the Family Research Council web site. Max is ‘borrowing’ server space. Not really a big deal…just bad form.

Joe Carter and Jared Bridges at FRC caught it and substituted this come-back:


Dead Kitty: Blumenthal Poisons Cats

The Huffington Post lefties are slow learners. Liberals always are. So Max Blumenthal re-hot-links. And screws up yet again.

But cannot get ahead of Christian Soldiers Marching as to War. Or Blumenthal’s Comedy Club.

That’s not ignorance of how the web works, no that’s willfully dishonest bandwidth theft on the part of Mr. Blumenthal.

    I didn’t say I found nothing funny. Here’s what I wrote: “This is a pretty funny prank, though I worry about the intent. … this is likely only to add to the bad blood.” I found it funny, but I was afraid it was not the wisest thing to do.

    As for my sense of humor being gone during my Ph.D. studies, check out my book that was recently published: For God’s Sake, Shut Up! ( It is very sarcastic as it offers tips for Christians on how to communicate more effectively and appropriately.
