The Problem With So-Called Hip Hop Journalists That Blog
Since members of the Mindset Army have been coming under attack for taking umbrage at the fact that Kris ex's Vibe piece on hip-hop blogging didn't mention the mighty b to the c. I felt it was time for me to help contribute to the cause, which is mainly proving the fact that Kris ex is a douche. Since I have a history of calling out douches in hip hop, I decided to throw my hat in the ring and also try and get some of that sweet sweet internets traffic I've not been getting over here lately...
The problem with so-called hip-hop journalists that blog is the fact that they blog. That means that whenever these fools say something stupid( I think Ex deleted his rant cuz I can't find a link to it anymore) or post up cheerleading stories for their friends then it's on the internet, available for all to read and laugh at. Which is just like their printed articles (or reviews, etc.) except here on the internets people can comment on what they've written or choose to attack their credibility based on evidence found through a few google searches. These so-called hip-hop journalists that blog are irrelevant to many of us because they are hypocrites. With the printed media they can get paid to espouse their criticism in printed media and expect no one to comment or criticize their criticism. Or at least not in print.
But when they step into this gully internets community or whatever it is they lose credibility because they can be called out in the comment sections which they read and occasionally respond to. They lose my respect and gain the title of hypocrites because they defend themselves and their criticism on the internet because it's not a luxury they have in print. If they intend to portray themselves as someone who's opinions matter by being a journalist or a critic then they should not blog. When a critic of music can't take criticism of his written word without responding to it with empty threats (that you later delete like you never wrote it) or just deleting posts that cheerlead the empty threats then he is a hypocrite and most importantly, a douche.
The gully internets is different than the printed media they contribute to and therefore they are out of their league. A musician cannot respond to these critics record reviews in the same magazine they are criticized in, so these so called journalists and critics shouldn't respond to their critics on the internet like they're the very crazy musicians they write about. There is a difference between musicians and music critics because they are two different types of people. One creates art and the other gets paid to comment on the art. Critics are the parasites of art. So when critics threaten their critics it's not scary like Freddie Foxx said he was going to kick some ass over a review, it's just comical. I would be afraid of a musician kicking my ass because they actually have emotional investments in their product and criticizing their ability to do so might result in them getting crazy. I certainly wouldn't fear someone who feels very passionately about their opinions on somebody else's art.
Simply put, if you can't take criticism of your opinion then you aren't much of a critic and everything you write is suspect. We here on the internets are your audience whether you like it or not and when we think think you cats are pullin' some bullshit we will call you out. Weak attempts to insult or intimidate members of the Mindset Army will not be tolerated on the internets as the Mindset is a gully internets gang. Recognize.

Do Hot Conservatives Exsist? OR These Bitches Don't Fool Me.
So I guess the obvious answer to my own question is no (Ian thinks M.M. is hot though). Ann Coulter (on the left) has an Adam's apple so she's a man. A skinny ugly man, but a man nonetheless. And something is up with Michelle Malkin too. All I know is that the first time I saw her crazy house-jap (I'll explain later) flat-ass I was like "Goddamn! Another dumpy conservative chick! Where do they come from?" But now, as she's made the rounds on Cable Networks to talk shit about Cindy Sheehan (google her name if you don't know about her) and her dead son, I've noticed that she's got a new image. She dropped the glasses (which I swear I once saw her in) and dropped the weight apparently. And she figured out how to apply make-up Let's look at the exhibits:
Exhibit A (my first introduction)
and Exhibit B:
See? Where did all those pock-marks and zits go? I will admit that she is better looking, but she's certainly not attractive. Plus, her trimming her eyebrows, slathering on makeup and lightening her hair doesn't mean she any less of a crazy bitch than before. I mean, c'mon...ugly on the inside equals ugly on the outside right? I just watched some video of her on the O'Reilly show talking about how she knew that Cindy Sheenan's son wouldn't approve of his mother's behavior. So what, now that she's less dumpy-lookin' she can communicate with the dead? If that's the case then I'm calling up some ugly-bitches from High-School (cuz I bet at least one of them looks good now) and I'm gonna have them help me talk to Eazy-E. Sounds like fun.
Either way, these Conservative women like M.M. or A.C. are hilarious to watch because they spout the most insane arguments that I've ever heard and you can tell that their whole "I'm tough" image is just a flimsy facade to mask whatever insecurities they have. These bitches are so repressed and self-loathing (no doubt because of repeated rapes by their respective fathers) that they'll say anything just to establish themselves as an authority. I mean, Michelle Malkin actually wrote a book about how the Jap internmnet camps were a good idea. Isn't that like Cornel West writing a paper about how slavery was a good thing because it made America so wealthy? Amazing! The only reason these crazy bitches are who they are today is because they hate themselves and they just project that hate onto others so they can get paid. But they don't fool me. Ann Coulter looks like a man and she always will. She says what she says becuase she knows she ugly and she hates herself. No doubt Malkin was really fat at one point in her life and so she feels she has something to prove. She may know how to use makeup but I know that she's really a fat girl. I can tell. I bet there's high-school pictures out there that prove my theory.
