Skip to comments.The Left, Online and Outraged
Posted on 04/14/2006 11:15:21 PM PDT by Plutarch
In the angry life of Maryscott O'Connor, the rage begins as soon as she opens her eyes and realizes that her president is still George W. Bush... Out there, awaiting her building fury: the Angry Left, where O'Connor's reputation is as one of the angriest of all. "One long, sustained scream" is how she describes the writing she does for various Web logs...
What's notable about this isn't only the level of anger but the direction from which it is coming. Not that long ago, it was the right that was angry and the left that was, at least comparatively, polite. But after years of being the targets of inflammatory rhetoric, not only from fringe groups but also from such mainstream conservative politicians as Newt Gingrich, the left has gone on the attack. And with Republicans in control of Washington, they have much more to be angry about.
"Powerlessness" is O'Connor's explanation. "This is born of powerlessness..."

Maryscott O'Connor says her liberal Web log, My Left Wing, is "one long, sustained scream." (By David Finkel -- The Washington Post)
The left should be angry - most Americans are on to them and not buying their crap.
Don't worry, it won't last much longer.
Suffer, [female canine].
12 years of Reagan and GHWB. Then, 8 years of someone foul. They didn't think he was foul - they enjoyed thinking "He's like me! He's just like me!" But then they get a guy not afraid to pull the trigger on thugs, and strong enough to disdain the Kyoto nonsense, and not get Ginsburgistas on SCOTUS... It's been said that one rock of crack can addict you. X42(i) was like crack to the minds of some leftists...
In Greek mythology a Gorgon is a monstrous feminine creature whose appearance would turn anyone who laid eyes upon it to stone. Later there were three of them: Euryale ("far-roaming"), Sthenno ("forceful"), and Medusa ("ruler"), the only one of them who was mortal. They are the three daughters of Phorcys and Ceto.
A fourth Gorgon, MaryScott O'Connor ("hideous"), was identified in the United States in the 21st century.
The Gorgons are monstrous creatures covered with impenetrable scales, with hair of living snakes, hands made of brass, sharp fangs and a beard. They live in the ultimate west, near the ocean, and guard the entrance to the underworld.
Aaaaack!! My eyes!!!

A Little About Me:
Or, A Radical Leftist Liberal Socialist Commie Feminist Pinko from Hell
My name is Maryscott O'Connor. (MSOC for short.) I am 37, married (to Adam Crocker) with a 6 year old son (Terry O'Connor).
I am also an orphan of Vietnam.
My father, Lieutenant Terence Raymond Roach, Jr. of the Third Marine Division, was killed on February 8, 1968 at Khe Sanh, during the Tet Offensive. I was born 3 months later, on April 29, 1968.
I consider Vietnam to be the defining feature of my life. Had it not been for that unjust war, I would have grown up with a father and a happy mother. Had she not been widowed, my childhood would have been very different; I cannot imagine it would have been worse (that's a lie: I can imagine Terry Roach coming home with PTSD and providing me an even MORE f**ked up childhood than the one I had -- but I choose NOT to imagine it that way). It ought not surprise anyone that I have an extreme sensitivity to needless war.
Interesting. She is apparently an emotionally disturbed person, as is clear from the article, a consequence of the death of her father and the evident depression of her mother. Her political activities are an outlet for obsessive-compulsive behavior. That accounts for the blogging. But there is something else going on.
The rage that brings satisfaction is something else. Rage evokes applause, and she seems to live for that. There is an echo-chamber effect here where disturbed people are feeding and amplifying each others rage because it brings them psychic rewards to do so. It is all about their feelings, and to keep the feelings going they are going more and more off the deep end.
This is not about objective analyses of cost-benefit, or anything on which common ground can be found.
There is literally no reasoning with people like this.
I forget. Whatever happened to that angry Newt Gingrich that the left were so polite to?

I'm sure it's just a coincidence, but from that picture it appears the only things that woman owns are a computer, an angry scowl, and a glass of wine.
And a shirt, but I'm thinking that was probably left at her house by a man after he gnawed off his own right arm.
