There once were some self-righteous asshats

A young woman wrote a satirical limerick about Michael Brown, at least slightly tasteless and definitely weak in the scansion department. Unsurprisingly, some people found something wrong with that, and are threatening her because hey, social justice, otherwise known as “Freedom for me, but not for thee.”

The only truly satisfactory solution to this would be for the whole sorry lot of them to be rocketed into the Sun, though I suspect the Sun would complain briefly along the lines of “Well, there goes the neighborhood.”

Reminder: Social justice is to justice what social disease is to disease.

    As someone in the thread @Jordan suggested, thecanonical form will be complied with by addition of “Mike” before Brown in the first line.
    That’s the only necessary improvement, as far as I can see.

    I was going to say something original, but then I saw this:

    It is written
    “About 13 percent of the population brings 90 percent of the butthurt.” — Gerard Van der Leun

    Oddly, I’d just added that to the quote list about an hour before.

    There’s some relation, I think, between this, and the allegation that hackers out of North Korea are doxxing and threatening families of Sony employees – because they don’t like the idea of a satirical movie about their Dear Leader being made.

    (It’s not been proven that it’s NK hackers, but a few people are suspicious.)

    “I really didn’t think we’d lose freedom of speech in THIS way” was my main reaction.
