Quite the Mendacious Happy Penguin

Failed spin.

Despicable “happy penguin” Brimelow, disturbed at the blowback to his pathetic comments about Spencer, tries to spin it thus:

I got a certain amount of weird harrumphing over my blog congratulating Richard Spencer for his Auburn triumph, because I noted the danger that he will eventually be shot. Incredibly, some readers apparently thought I was advocating his being shot, or somehow making it more likely..

OK, Pete.  In your original post, you note an email correspondence with an anti-Spencer Jew, in which you say this about Spencer:

If it’s any consolation to you, I think it’s just a matter of time until he gets shot.

I don’t know, Petey my boy.  If you blithely talk about someone getting shot being “consolation” to a correspondent, it doesn’t seem like you’d be real upset and all about the possibility.  I mean, Pete, you are a professional writer, are you not?  If only one person "misinterpreted" your statements, you could credibly try to spin that as one individual’s error, but you mention “readers” – as in plural – no?  So, I’d say you are either a lousy writer or you were expressing schadenfreude over the possibility of Spencer being shot – the latter interpretation not unreasonable given your “anger” at Spencer and your falling out with him.

What next, Pete?  Going to try and spin Derbyshire asking at your VDARE dump why possession of child porn should be illegal?
