I’ve tried to ignore this, but today’s front page PDN story forced my hand. People on Guam are hopping mad about this cockfighting article written by a stupid haolie at ESPN. Madeliene Bordallo is upset, Rick Nauta wrote an email, Mike Cassidy is angry. Never mind that Ray Gibson’s been hawking this story all week on K-57. Anyway, this freelance writer apparently came out to visit his sister and her husband in the Navy, and they went to a cockfight in Santa Rita. He promptly starts parroting the moronic misconceptions of the bubbleheads that never get off the base. Two recurring memes that come from this pool of idiots: People in remote villages on Guam will offer you their daughters for ‘devirginization’; and there’s only two kinds of people on Guam, the inbred idiots that were born here, and the poor suffering sailors stationed here by Uncle Sam. This article manages to reference both of these perfectly cromulent tropes. Perhaps the story was meant to be humorous, I don’t know. It certainly doesn’t endear this foolish man to the people of Guam, and I don’t think it will help ease relations between military personnel and locals.
No wonder Jesse Lujan can get away with his diatribes against ‘Statesiders,’ and finds them such a convenient political straw man. Idiots like Mike Ogle do nothing but provide cannon fodder for these attacks. Thanks dude. Y’all come back now, here?
