Archiving the pre-end-times' happenings. Topics usually appropriate for mixed company. But not really.

And this is why:
Hawkins, the guy who wrote this post, is a fellow Mainer who I’ve never actually met but runs in the same circles as I. He is an atheist- an antitheist more specifically, and often opens discussions on facebook which I’m generally fond of. Sometimes I feel his approach can be a little in-your-face, but not to the point where I’m turned off enough to unfollow him. His most recent blog post I am particularly pleased by. Micheal Hartwell, a blogger who calls himself and his blog “Young, Hip & Conservative”, is someone I would consider an actual acquaintance and know on a personal level. Hartwell has recently moved to Boston to become a journalist, which is particularly unsettling due to how very often he resorts to logical fallacies such as straw man, begging the question, and ad hominum in his writing. He is also blissfully unaware of his privilege. I believe that Hartwell needs to be exposed for this, especially in hopes that other people will begin to stand behind Hawkins and I. We must challenge him and hold him accountable for what Hartwell considers to be sound writing. Just look at the way he talks to his “friends”:
Hartwell’s entire blogs-worth of logical fallacies this way. I suggest playing “find the racism and white male privilege” drinking game if you’re looking to make it a good time.
