The Inevitable Christopher Hitchens has Died Thread
« on: December 16, 2011, 05:56:05 am »
I don't give a shit

Do any of you?
Through me the way to the city of woe, Through me the way to everlasting pain, Through me the way among the lost.
Justice moved my maker on high.
Divine power made me, Wisdom supreme, and Primal love.
Before me nothing was but things eternal, and eternal I endure.
Abandon all hope, you who enter here.

Well why don't we just set up a party on his grave

that'd be classy.

Hitchens was a moral monster in his advocation of the Iraq War and his unwavering propaganda suggesting bombing the shit out of little brown religious people across the globe.

I ain't gonna party on his grave, but if an Iraqi wants to take a shit there, I wish him the best of luck.

He was pretty fucking unlikable.

But the whole "Yay for someone dying" thing. Seriously. Every fucking time.

I didn't say yay
I said I didn't care
but I thought some of you might.
It seems everyone everywhere else on the internet does.

Douchebag British atheist.

I only care about 1/3 of that. And for once, British is not one of those things I care about.

What I do care about is for people to stop giving a crap about what they believe. It's all bullshit anyway. No one knows shit, other than when you are dead, you die, and you most likely paid taxes and had to come to terms with the fact that you owe your existence to your dad bonking your mom, disgusting as that image invariably is.

Pity that he's dead. I think that death is the ultimate cruelty. We are given the gift of humanity, and part of humanity is knowing that we cease to exist at some point.

I hope he's wrong and he's chillin with hannukwanzjesus right now. Partially for the "haha, you were wrong", but mostly for the "no one deserves to die. We ought to be immortal in some way."

Frankly, I think it's perfectly valid to be happy that Hitchens died.

It's one thing to be an immoral shitstain. It's a completely different thing to have a global mass-media platform which you use to try to convince the rest of the world that it's good to be an immoral shitstain and that they should follow suit.

So yeah, if I were to come across his grave IRL I probably would dance on it, or at least spit on the headstone. Fuck that guy.

Heh, if God does exist, I bet he was rubbing his hands together and giving a little evil chuckle when he heard the news.

His fascist turn in the last decade did not impress me, but I liked most everything else about the man.  I'm quite saddened by his death.

"Heard" the news?  You don't know much about this God fellow... do you?

The worst aspect of that is that, when you read his longer articles from the 1980s, you realise he knew exactly what kind of people the Bush administration were, because he'd been writing about their individual members and kooky philosophy for years beforehand.

I put it down to Hitchens' attitude towards Islam after the Salman Rushdie fatwa, which have more than just a tinge of racism to them.  Neoconservatism, when applied to the Soviet Union (ie white people with whom he had a level of ideological affinity) was wrong, whereas Neoconservatism for the Middle East was just fine.

Fucking hell are you that bored that you're now looking to dig up old arguments over things that nobody actually said yet??

Stirring up shit for nothing, over nothing, if you're trolling PD, go do that somewhere else. And this isn't even jumping on some retarded n00b, but you're wilfully misinterpreting Thurnez, a long-time poster that we all know never even comes close to the sort of assholish vulture-like behaviour you're accusing him of.
