In this thread, DrDeth issues this tripeful bullshit waste of space: “Even when he massacred the Black Union soldiers?” In reference to Nathon Bedford Forrest. Forrest’s morality was not the issue. It was not even tangentially related to the thread at hand. And I am pissed.
This is yet another crapful threadshitting. The comment added nothing and was not even meant as serious debate. It was “Fuck You!” disguised as commentary, with no other purpose but to disput the debate. We’ve had threads about Forrest before, and he was indeed a harsh and nasty man, is a courageous and perceptive one, during the war, though he may have redeemed himself afterward. And starting such a thread would be fine.
More to the point, this comment failed to even make logical sense. It was patently obvious that the preceding comment re: Forrest had been about his military capacity. Secondly, if DrDeth actually knew his ass from his elbow regarding the Civil War, he’d probably know that Fort Pillow had frag-all to do with Bragg.
In short, the entire comment lacked appropriateness, relevance, usefulness, and importance. It fails to rise to the level of nitpickery, for God’s sake. DrDeth, I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
