Apparently Fish has insulted Nulan to the point of an impending duel. Nulan says:
Had my unedited cerebellar reaction to your preposterous offer here on this thread been deemed out of bounds - E.C. would’ve called me on it and exercised his editorial prerogative. You should really think about that because this brother is about as fair and sober a judge as you’re ever likely to encounter.
See, this really isn’t all that complicated. You did the same thing to Cobb, but much worse. If I had it to do over again, I would call you on the abuse you heaped on Cobb instead of letting it devolve the way it did. For not doing the right thing with respect to your behavior then, I owe Cobb an apology. What you did went beyond the pale. You tried to injure him personally and professionally on the Assault. Had it been me, I would’ve had you shut down for content policy violations the very same day. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.
When you decided that I had broached your standard of fundamentalist ideological compliance - I was summarily reduced to being a “white ass-kisser”. Simple deja vu. Your fundamental character flaw had gotten the better of you once again, but this time - instead of my long time rhetorical and political sparring partner Cobb, I was now to be the target of your ritual habitual. That was two mistakes for the price of one.
1. By repeating yourself you confirmed your modus operandi and in the process disclosed something rather nasty about your psychological makeup.
2. You simply picked the wrong one to attempt it with - cause in this medium - I’m about as close a thing to Elegba as you’re ever likely to encounter.
So this is where it’s at today. You’re off on some deeply addicted knuckle-dragging type racialist shit that has no place in the company of clear-headed Black men with a shared purpose and reasonably well established trust subsystem. There may be a lot that we don’t agree on, but fundamentally we’re working toward the same ends and want to see one another succeed.
You, on the other hand, are so far gone into the sickness of your GSWS convictions, that you not only have no qualms about personally injuring other Black men with whom you disagree, but even given the benefit of time and hindsight - you’re incapable of discerning exactly where you stepped over the line. I don’t need to debate you - you’ve already demonstrated beyond any doubt whatsoever - that you’re lost.
I made the mistake of believing that you operate in good faith, but you’ve gone to great lengths to prove me wrong. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice…
That's curious. I didn't realize that Fish was dragging my name in the dirt over at his website, and so I read what I presume to be the offending thread a few minutes ago. I actually only care what Ed, P6, Nulan and Mehkeru said. The rest are Fish's butt boys for the most part.
As it turned out, I left Fish in peace after our debate. I don't read his blog, and I haven't given any consideration to the original insult since then.
But now I have to seriously consider reconsidering my neutrality on him because of what he has obviously done to get on Craig Nulan's last nerve. I was aware that Craig was peeved at him for pissing on Tim Wise for no good reason. Some of those comments were here. But I didn't realize that it had come to this. So now it's definitely on, and I think some judgment is going to be made. Nulan's a full time blogger now and Earl P6 Dunovant is surely going to pay attention as are other respectable gents, some of whom dismiss me as graciously as can be expected.
I can hardly imagine more cans of whoopass being opened than this. I feel kind of sorry that it has to take place on EC's front porch, but EC's really the only man who can add any sensible discipline and decorum to what is basically going to get very, very heated. I lack the history to describe the matchup in either boxing or in the Comic Book Universe. Well, on second thought maybe it's Fish's Incredible Hulk to Nulan's Spawn.
My prediction? Fish will walk away without realizing he will have suffered massive brain damage and he will continue Hulking out in misery for the rest of his days.
