Ace pounds Salon Truther post; Joan Walsh: don’t you know who I am, ‘moron’?!/joanwalsh/status/294217574667935745

Truth(erism) hurts! And, boy, was Ace’s takedown of Joan Walsh truly epic. Poor, little Joan! Once again hoisted by her own petard! Earlier today, Salon published a Truther article titled, “Give truthers a chance?” No, seriously. They did, and the hilarity ensued. 

The only plausible reason Salon took down the 9/11 conspiracy article: they’re part of the conspiracy. #LayersandLayers

Heh. Yes, Salon took the article down, and issued a correction that Ace of Spades also totally destroys. But, that’s not even the biggest issue, “morons.” It’s knowing Joan Walsh’s exact job description that really matters, you see. Don’t you know who she is?

@liquidflorian @aceofspadeshq @salon No, more like morons. See my last Tweet.

— Joan Walsh (@joanwalsh) January 23, 2013

No, being a moron explains it. Salon’s staff/editors list is easily available @theforgetler @twitchyteam @aceofspadeshq.

— Joan Walsh (@joanwalsh) January 23, 2013

Um. Perhaps the “moron” is the one who wants to be associated with Salon only when convenient?


@scoamt @salon @aceofspadeshq another moron.

— Joan Walsh (@joanwalsh) January 23, 2013

I like @joanwalsh‘s implication that not knowing her actual duties with @salon is “moronic,” but 9/11 Trutherism is just a little oversight

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

Being called out for not doing the basics of journalism to ascertain my role at Salon while you’re calling out @salon @aceofspadeshq Ouch.

— Joan Walsh (@joanwalsh) January 24, 2013

Yes, publishing Trutherism garbage is no biggie. What’s really important is Joan Walsh’s self-stroking. Don’t know what specific job she holds? Moron. Printing Truther nonsense? Super smart journalism and stuff. Probably enlightened, too.

To @joanwalsh Is an Editor at Large an editor, or is that simply a disingenuous title with no responsibility? @scoamt @salon @aceofspadeshq

— the forgetler (@theforgetler) January 23, 2013

@aceofspadeshq It’s a fact that editors were suspiciously absent from work on that fateful September Tuesday in 2001… @joanwalsh @salon

— Miké (@ThePantau) January 23, 2013

@aceofspadeshq @joanwalsh That’s what you get for believing her when she uses words like “editor at large”. Truth is flexible at Salon

— Vince Brown (@PokerofDogs) January 23, 2013

Indeed. But, all is well. Ace of Spades is at the ready to deliver a little truth.

Poor, little Joan was upset that Twitchy and Ace of Spades pointed out the article’s existence and publication on the site. Ace of Spades gave an epic drubbing to the article itself; read the whole thing. He then took to Twitter, with the help of some fellow Twitter users, to continue helpfully providing some life lessons to Salon and Joan Walsh. Warning: Prepare to giggle loudly. Maybe even a snort or two.

Media!!! An anti-science, ignorant, hyperpoliticized conspiracy theory is endorsed in a major fringe political magazine…

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

I know you’ll be interested in drawing all sorts of aggressive conclusions from this, Media!!I just plum KNOW IT!!!

Dear @joanwalsh : 3000 Jews didn’t show up for work on 9/11. Fire can’t melt steel. Uri Geller, an Israeli, melted spoons. Q.E.D.

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

I mean, @joanwalsh, do I have to draw you a road-map? Sheesh, it’s so simple.

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

[email protected]joanwalsh Will Salon tell us more about the JFK assassination conspiracy, too, as your article suggested?

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

I like how Salon knocked Alex Jones for being a wacko conspiracy theorist, then endorsed his primary wacko conspiracy theory. @joanwalsh

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

According to @joanwalsh and Salon, Alex Jones is kooky — except for this WTC7 deal. There, he’s admirably spot-on. But otherwise? kooky.

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

Per @joanwalsh /Salon, Jones is a wackadoo when he says the 2nd Amendment protects gun rights, but he’s on solid ground with 9/11 conspiracy

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

@aceofspadeshq @joanwalsh I swear fire cannot burn paper.Really, scientific fact.

Dear Salon, communications majors shouldn’t do chemistry. Please update your records accordingly.CC:@joanwalsh

@aceofspadeshq You call it steel, native Americans call it *maize*.

Dear @joanwalsh, isn’t it crazy that some paranoids think that someone faked a birth certificate? I mean, consider the logistics of that!

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

It’s not like something simple like the secret demolition of NYC landmarks by remote-controlled plane and hidden explosives! @joanwalsh

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

I mean, obviously, someone could use an RC plane and hidden charges to blow up the WTC, @joanwalsh. Obviously, as someone did that.

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

But using photoshop to fake piece of paper! That’s INSANE! Think about how many singles of people would have to be in on that! @joanwalsh

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

Congratulations on finally seeing The Truth of 9/11, and spreading the word to your fellow…uh, Reality-Based Community persons. @joanwalsh

[email protected]joanwalsh @salon fucking imbeclies…

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

Then I look forward for your article on the prevalence of crackpot conspiracy theories on the [email protected]salon

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

How could it be that a group of such terrific thinkers, drafted by @salon to provide content, are gripped by such delusions?

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

Glorious. He then blasts her further for her ludicrous “but, editor” tweets.

I’m sorry I didn’t realize “Editor at Large” was a vanity title @joanwalsh @theforgetler @twitchyteam

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

& the question isn’t about your editing the piece, but that you will ignore this delusion and yet chirp on about birthers @joanwalsh

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

even when the piece appears cheek-by-jowl next to your… offerings, you’ll just pretend it didn’t happen @joanwalsh

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

No offense, but you’re really not a major enough presence to pull the “don’t you know my exact duties at @salon” card @joanwalsh

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013

To be clear:No, I don’t know to which duties your vanity title obliges you.Why would you imagine I would? @joanwalsh @joanwalsh

— FreakyGuy69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) January 23, 2013


Joan Walsh then had the utter gall to retweet this.


Oh, honey. Rep. Duncan is “ignorant” for speaking truth? But, Trutherism is no big whoop, “morons.”

Bless your heart.
