Ask Wonkette: Player Hater

Wonkette occasionally answers reader mail. Send yours to . Reader J.L. wants to attract our attention:


Dear Ms. Wonkette.

I understand that you "hate" Jonah Goldberg and Michelle Malkin.

Would it be possible for you to hate me too?

If I helps, let me assure you that I find your blog to be shallow, your style insipid and (to the best of my ability to discern) you seem like a really petty person.

Thanks in advance for your consideration of my request.

Thanks for writing! I should be honest... Oh, wait, I was. When I said I hated Goldberg and Malkin Tuesday night, I also added I don't really hate anyone very much. That I should correct: I hate myself. But Goldberg and Malkin? I am merely annoyed by them. If you want to annoy me, J.L., you're going to have to try harder.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
