This is the third in my series of posts about Abagond
I became a regular commenter at Abagond’s blog at the beginning of 2016. As everyone there knows, because I told them, I came there for the specific purpose of denouncing Barack Obama. It was the last year of his presidency and I wanted to condemn him and confront his supporters. At the time I thought Abagond’s was a pro-Obama blog, because that’s what it was from my earlier reading of it. It turned out that Abagond was not pro-Obama any longer. That was good. But he was urging everyone to vote for Hillary Clinton, though he was loathe to call himself a Hillary supporter. From my way of thinking, that was just as bad as being an Obama supporter. Hillary Clinton would have been the continuation of Obama’s political agenda domestically and an intensification of it in foreign policy. It would have been essentially Obama’s third term; and it would have been an Obama on steroids. Though Abagond had abandoned Obama and all of the Obama advocates on the blog were withering away, to advocate for Hillary, as Abagond was doing, was to advocate for continuing the same Obama policies. So I stuck around at Abagond’s even though hardly anybody there was defending Obama. They were instead defending Hillary, which was worse. She had the same evil outlook as Obama. And she wasn’t even black. So there was not even the superficial reason of skin color for blacks to support her. To a large extent she became a surrogate for Obama in my eyes. There was no difference between them. It was the same brand of evil. And I decided to continue at Abagond’s and condemn the both of them. For all intents and purposes they were one and the same. Electing her would be a way of cementing in place the atrocious policies of the Obama administration. In effect the electorate would be ratifying those policies and insuring that they would continue for decades, rather than be shattered to rubble, as they should be, and replaced.
I say I became a regular commenter in 2016. But I used to drop in occasionally at Abagond’s to comment on something if I was interested. But this was rare. Apparently the fact that I visited before 2016 is important to some people and failure to mention it was an egregious act of deception on my part. On the other hand, if someone cannot accept the distinction between my being an occasional visitor and a regular commenter I say fuck you. I owe you no explanation whatsoever and it is arrogant and presumptuous for you to berate me for it. You sound just like a white person. And what does it matter anyway whether I had been there before? Much ado about nothing.
I love the way Abagond made it seem when he described my past visits.

*He conflates visiting his blog occasionally with ‘being’ here. As if I was participating regularly in the commentary. That is misleading and dishonest. Yes, his blog is on my reader and I did drop in to say this in 2011 when he seemed to be awakening to the perfidy of Obama.
[abagond]” maybe I have been fooling myself all along about the true nature of the president.”
At least, unlike so many other blacks, you’re beginning to realize it.
I dropped in , said it and left. I did not participate in the discussion. Not on that post or any other, with few exceptions. I can think of only two posts that I made more than one comments on before 2016.
I’m sure that there have been one or two others, but nothing like what Abagond described.

By that point nomad was commenting about once a week.
This is a lie. I was not commenting there once a week in 2015. It wouldn’t matter if I was. But I wasn’t. I want to see Abagond’s proof that this is so. It’s not important except that it was part of his endgame, to paint me as a liar. Unless he reveals the evidence and links to prove this, as far as I’m concerned, this is another example of his chronic lying.
*His end game
Abagond wanted to get rid of me from the moment of that Hillary Clinton for president post. And who can blame him? I was exposing his hypocrisy. I and the others that he designated the “Trump Non Fan Club”. Apparently he thought making the environment inhospitable to me would drive me away. Instead, it had the opposite effect. It made me an even more frequent commenter in an effort to counter his continuous disinformation; first regarding Hillary and Trump, and then regarding an important source of news (for me and other black people if they are wise), the RT news network. That was the opening game. To try to shame me, and to allow his acolytes to do it, as in this thread, It didn’t work. It couldn’t work on a guy like me. Did I mention I don’t give a damn about what people think? All I care about is truth and proof. I don’t care about your judgement of me as a person. Don’t like me? That’s your problem. That kind of shaming doesn’t work on me. It won’t make me go away. It will just make me mad. In light of that, and because I was a year long thorn in his side, Abagond knew he had to try another tactic: paint me as a liar. The accusation is ironic. It is projecting on to me (and others) the thing that he himself is guilty of. It is pretty clear now that he was looking for excuses to ban me. I think he was hoping I would get mad and leave when he deleted a well constructed comment I made be cause I used a banned word that he had excused before after moderation: “piss”. But I simply told him that was a petty move and kept right on rolling. Either before or after that he accused me of plagiarism and working for the Kremlin. None of that drove me away. The end game was to accuse me of being a liar. That didn’t really work either, but it was curious how it unfolded, with Abagond teaming up to make that accusation with Solitaire.
I had always been on friendly terms with Solitaire until this episode. She changed abruptly because contrary to what she thought, she discovered I had been to Abagond’s blog before. At least that’s what I thought happened. It turned out not to be the reason, as I was able to tease out later, but her latching on to something that was an innocent mistake and blowing it out of proportion. Under the belief that she was talkingabout something from years ago, I explained to her the difference between being an occasional visitor and being a regular commenter, but she was having none of it and called me all kinds of dirty names.
Solitaire-You LIED to my face (digitally speaking) and when confronted with it instead of coming clean you LIED to my face again and again.
It’s still unclear what constituted a lie. I said I came here in 2016. Even if she didn’t buy the distinction of regular commenter, no where did I say I had not been here before. She just assumed it. And she was completely bonkers on this point.
Why have you been pretending that you only showed up after the election when you were heavily involved in pre-election arguments?
I may have said something like that but it was an error, not a lie. I was thinking of the campaign season, which seemed year long. Why would I lie about? She was here participating in the pre-election debate with me! It was obviously a mistake. It was such a ridiculous thing to get upset about it really didn’t register with me. That is why I didn’t understand what she was saying about my having talked about my police harassment experience before on Abagond’s blog. I thought she was talking about before my 2016 participation. The fact that she was talking about something I said since becoming a regular commenter at Abagond’s is about the stupidest accusation I’ve ever had anybody make against me. And was so ugly about it too. Disgusting!
Then Abagond jumped in and claimed that I had “been here” since 2011, further confusing the issue. That’s a false statement. I dropped in very rarely. But still his allusion is that I am lying about when I first visited this blog, though neither he nor Solitaire can quote this lie; and of course it wouldn’t matter if I did but for what reason on God’s green earth would I lie about that? Oh wait. Solitaire had the answer: to troll Abagond. Why I would want to troll Abagond and how lying about when I came there would help me do that remains unclear. But that’s the kind of twisted logic they are into over there. And this includes Abagond. He frequently indulges in the fallacy I call “goosey goosey gander” which I will describe in the next post in this series.
It is as if Solitaire and Abagond planned this little maneuver. To underscore my lying nature Abagond posted another innocent mistake I made.
Nomad on February 12th:
“And he appears to be at odds with the ‘deep state’. His own party undercuts him and MSM, the propaganda arm of the state, is totally biased against him. So he does not have the mind control capability that Big Brother has.”
Nomad, two days later on February 14th:
“BTW, in the comment you were responding to, I did not mention the Deep State. Doesn’t even sound like a term I have used. But I’m not adverse to using it.”
In fact, by that point, he and MJB had been the biggest users of the term “deep state”.
I thought this was a curious interjection, building on Solitaire’s ridiculous accusation of lying in which they were able to create the forgetfulness meme to use against me because I said I couldn’t remember something that apparently never happened by mistakenly believing that this woman was talking in good faith. MJB, another commenter piled on that, joking that I couldn’t remember what I believed.
I don’t think Abagond was successful painting me as a liar, despite his and Solitaire’s best effort. All they showed is sometimes I misspeak. Who doesn’t. There was no lying except on Abagond’s part (the assertion that I was in a Ukraine discussion at his blog is pathological) and maybe Solitaire’s. But it didn’t matter. He banned me anyway, unceremoniously and without warning. The jerk didn’t even give me a poll like he did his other alleged trolls.
