In no way did I mean to discount your family history or anything like that, I just think the controversy the WLA stirs up is quite fascinating. Although, the actual content may be considered offensive, I think the real moral of the story here is, change is scary. I just wanted to kick up the dust a little. I was, after putting some effort into a response, expecting to be attacked more.
Welcome Glorious New Army For Greatification of Michigan!
Comrades- This is your only notice. While Comrade Cook lives life high on the hog of capitalism, the WLA has stormed the gates of MGoBlog and will be providing you with the truth you yearn for! But before we commence the purging of the bourgeoisie from the party ranks via Thunderdome-esque battles in the comment section (ARGUE OR DIE!) there is urgent business to attend to.
Most importantly, the WLA can now be found at a shiny new home. We have many new toys for loyal comrades to express their love of the Revolution!
Less importantly, but still importantly, at signing day, Commissar Rodriguez enlisted new foot-soldiers to bolster the ranks of the revolution. As a public service to the proletariat, the WLA would like to introduce our newest Wolverines to you:
Isaiah Bell - Bell organized a demonstration at a local smelting plant,
resulting in the workers gaining an additional 10 minute break.
Will Campbell - Single-handedly assembled 25 tractors for the glory of the people after a break-down in the assembly line.
Vladimir Emilien - Emilien led the ouster of Romania's King Michael to prompt the reign of Romanian communism.
Tate Forcier - Forcier gave up a lucrative future as a boy band front man after being blacklisted due to this strict Marxist theory and insistence on splitting all band income equally among crew, performers, and management.
Jeremy Gallon - Gallon's test taking issues are actually a protest against the biased pro-capitalist public school system in America.
Brendan Gibbons - Just kicks things well, and we like his hair. A communist upbringing produces good hair (see: Baryshnikov, Mikhail).
Cameron Gordon - Gordon is a KGB operative embedded at Inkster High School, intent on securing Devin Gardner's enlistment into the Revolution.
Je'Ron Stokes - his favorite song is "Hakuna Matata," so obviously he'll fit right in with RichRod.
Thomas Gordon - Thomas "Prison Abs" Gordon spent 2 years as a penal officer in the Gulag, "reprogramming" wayward Revolutionaries.
Pearlie Graves - Publicly demonstrated his allegiance to the Revolution as all great Marxists have in the past, by sporting quality facial hair. PURGED. He was convicted of stealing bread from mothers outside the state bakery.
Brandin Hawthorne - Led an uprising at a Unicorn breeding ranch in northwestern Utah. Unicorns are meant to be free.
DeQuinta Jones - Secretly raised the Northern Louisiana People's Alligator Army to defend the interior of the country from French invasion northward along the Mississippi River. PURGED. Convicted of seditious speech against the regime and sentenced to four years hard labor on a hog farm in the humid belly of the nation.
Mike Jones - Special Agent of the Revolution enlisted to travel from Florida to hunt down a wayward former Edgewater teammate, OL Michael Brewster now of Ohio State. Think 'Apocalypse Now', but without the water buffalo sacrifice.
Teric Jones - A graduate of Cass Tech, Jones was able to re-engineer and repair 14 dismantled KV-1 Tanks for future use.
Anthony LaLota - A devoted capitalist until 16, LaLota switched his philosophy after visiting a local box factory on a school field trip. Infuriated by the working conditions, he led a bloody coup of the facility and has quickly shot up the rankings of the Politburo Recruiting Service.
Taylor Lewan - The 'Desert Destroyer' is bringing to Ann Arbor his knowledge of how to grow the Revolution in arid climates, as insurance against global warming.
Denard Robinson - When Florida coach Urban Meyer visited for dinner, Mr. Robinson took off his shoe, pounded it on the table and screamed "MICHIGAN WILL DEFEAT YOU!"
Craig Roh - Refers to his eyebrows as the "Fuzzy Curtain".
Michael Schofield - A structural engineer who once utilized his technical abilities to extract his innocent brother from prison. These skills will be very valuable in erecting various public works, infrastructure, and completing the renovations of Michigan Stadium.
Vincent Smith - Originally from the "muck" of the vast Russian steppe, Smith developed his quickness while hunting corsac foxes by hand to help feed his village during harsh winters.
Fitzgerald Toussaint - After wreaking havoc behind enemy lines in Ohio all his life, his actions this fall garnered him a promotion to General of
Justin Turner - A high-ranking official in his home, Turner was disillusioned with his life and country. On a chance visit to glorious Ann Arbor, he was moved to tears by the site of the Blue Army congregating in front of Burton Tower for their daily pledge of allegiance to the Revolution. He committed his life to Comrade Rodriguez on the spot.
Quinton Washington - His daring midnight defection over the Spurrier Wall and into the freedom of the People's Republic of Ann Arbor has already inspired three folk ballads in rural farming communities.
Adrian Witty - Feeds, grooms, and cleans the hooves of Denard Robinson's Unicorn.
We hope you feel a new found solidarity with our recruited soldiers – ONWARD TO VICTORY, COMRADES!
As someone who routinely beat the shit out of band kids when i was in school and a coach that gets tired of dealing with band directors every season and a guy who always makes fun of people that get too into things like star wars or lord of the rings,
I feel like I should probably not comment on that reaction.
You're the kind of guy that brags about beating up band kids in high school, and yet you can't write a complete sentence to save your soul? What a weird combination.
Seems like an obvious combination to me.
What's weird is hanging out here with all the blog dorks.
im only here becasue of how nice you are to me..
A dork is a whale's penis, so maybe you should think about that.
Yeah, Simms. Remember most of the posters here were band/Star Wars geeks in high school and are now going to lord over you because they went to Michigan.
no i was talking about last summer while at wake forest for a few more grad courses, beat the shit out of a couple of band kids. Thinking about maybe beating the shit out of some today when they ask why ill point them in your direction.
but thanks for the compliment stw, always good to hear from you...
BA in both history and econ.
Family from eastern Poland. First persecuted by the SS...then by the occupying red army. Dozens of family members killed...including few who were nuns and many children.
your indignation is insulting....not to mention it being a you issue.
God I can't stand people like you. Want to feel upset about something? Something tangible? Go work at soup kitchen and see what this country does with it's old, poor, and handicapped. THere's something to be upset about....christ.
I'm still upset at the armies' of Jogaila and Vytautas failure to capture Marienburg after the Battle of Grunwald in 1410.
I'm also upset about the German genocide against the Prussians in the 1200's. Filthy Teuton crusaders!
I believe I have seen this before, very effective, hopefully Greg Robinson brings some of that tenacity on Saturday's.
You had some momentum calling that guy a puss for being offended.... until you threw down the God card. substitute "God" with "I", as in "I can't stand people like you". Instead, you choose to reference your imaginary friend. Now you just appear to be another brainwashed peon.
"God I can't stand people like you."
You fail at reading. He was using 'God' as in "God damn I can't stand people like you".
pwned. Victory for WLA. Damn.
He did say that Christ was something to be upset about
Even if the post didn't entertain(which it does), the response is priceless.
Communism lacks top-end earning potential for me.
...if your just a commoner. But the politburo...that's some cash money.
Wait, I mean, EQUALITY! EQUALITY FOR ALL!
If you put that on a shirt, I will buy two.
I have it all set up.
Fuzzy Curtain > Steel Curtain
MR. COOK TEAR DOWN THIS WALL.
That is all.
You either found it funny or you didn't. I actually found it quite funny. (Whoever came up with the Roh "Fuzzy Curtain"...genius!!)
But the "WLA-gang-up-defense" in the comments section just makes you look like tools.
I nearly pissed my pants reading the entire post, but I lost it at this part:
"Denard Robinson - When Florida coach Urban Meyer visited for dinner, Mr. Robinson took off his shoe, pounded it on the table and screamed "MICHIGAN WILL DEFEAT YOU!""
If we can organize the reverse vampires, and the neo maxi zoom tweeties, we might be able to stave off the WLA. But, we'll need some nukes and a case of Natty Light to do it. And maybe some Cheese Doodles.
Is Vladimir Emilien a Kicker ?
Show some class guys. Who cares if this was different? Brian is gone. Be an adaptable mother f***er.
the most shocking part about this is that people find it funny
is how easily you are shocked, apparently.
The most shocking thing about you is that your a virgin and you still feel the need to talk shit.
are people that are upset with the post the same ones that get all jacked up when THE KNOWLEDGE posts.. like omg he is terrible, or omg he is great...
im betting most are...
Communism? Revolution? Unicorns? These are by far the most offensive, non-informative pieces of filth that have ever graced this blog! It’s offensive to even know that it’s been posted here. Where are the posts about drunken O$U players that we can hypocritically laugh at? Where are the posts about recruits that have been overanalyzed ad nauseam and facebook stalked? Where are the posts about SNAKE OOOOOIIIIILLLLLZZZZ? THAT’S what makes up 90% of MGoBlog, THAT’S what keeps me informed, and THAT’S what I want to see when I come here!
How dare Brian leave the site to whoever he chooses simply because he owns this blog and pays for all of its expenses! This blog may be “free” in the traditional sense, but I pay for it with my time, my eyesight, and the fuzzy feeling that I’m sure Brian gets by knowing that I enjoy reading it. I also clicked on his advertisements, so there's that too. It’s kind of like with the football players. I paid for my Michigan-licensed Mike Hart jersey which helps pay for their scholarships, so basically they owe me. Same with Brian. Does he actually think he can do what he wants with MGoBlog? Does he actually think we can simply NOT click the link or otherwise ignore the post? Of course not! We HAVE to read it, because it’s there. And we HAVE to comment on it to let the world know that we don’t find this funny (despite the fact that humor is inherently subjective as demonstrated by the several commenters here that do, in fact, find it funny).
This is just a disgrace. My life will never be the same after reading this, but at least I can say that we should never allow this to happen again. NEVER. AGAIN.
In the meantime, I’ll be watching reruns of Full House until Brian gets back. Now that's comedy gold.
10 cocktails to you, sir.
Couldn't find a way to work an "Unacceptable!" in there?
Adrian Witty shall henceforth be known as Squire
Man, I tried to warn them. A couple of months ago I posted, "It is a good thing the LAW has not tried to bring their shtick to MGoBLog. If they did they would be taken care of in no time."
Of course, the inevitable shit storm from the LAW ensued.
So, now the LAW has brought their shtick to MGoBlog and the results speak for themselves.
My only question: Why are they surprised??
You should probably just shoot yourself.
Is that the french translation of Wolverine Liberation Army or something?
I'm not sure this raging debate about the guest posting of the WLA can be completely resolved without some kind of ruling from The Knowledge.
Call me crazy.
I think the WLA is funny. Not Sam Kinison funny, but funnier than Bob Saget.
The WLA is like an early episode of Perfect Strangers.
Puts you above GERG
Lets take a look at MGoEthics:
I will maintain focus. Appropriate topic areas for mgoblog in descending order of relevance:
- Michigan sports.
- Sports media; print, broadcast, and blog.
- Opponent news.
- General NCAA news
- Other sports of interest (Pistons, USMNT soccer mostly)
- Dancing bananas, Walken 2008, etc.
This definitely falls in line with Dancing Bananas,Walken 2008, etc. And in terms of overall attention to that category, it's been kind of lax lately.
Most of these people have yet to see Brian's soccer fandom... I can't wait for the summer of 2010.
