I’m a sometimes troll, one with a peculiar style.

So. I trolled Alex Jones’ Facebook page when they riffed on the importance of defending our right to free speech, the kind of post that gets their three non-hung-over wingnuts frothing early on a Saturday. I thanked them for being America’s answer to Charlie Hebdo, pushing the limits so that the rest of us can relax knowing that the line is way the hell over there somewhere.

I got thanked.

Was that too subtle for the crowd? Or is that an acknowledgment that they abuse the limits of decency by intentionally coming up with the most egregiously ridiculous and offensive material they can come up with. Mind you, that’s a feat when it comes to ridiculousness, but they utterly lack Charlie’s artistry at the offense.
