After close to two decades of lashing out with insults, collective guilt-mongering and other outrageously offensive behavior, Robin Edgar is now claiming that it’s not really him. On his latest blog post, he insists that “The Emerson Avenger” is a “caricature” and separate “persona” from how he really is, and that he is really a very “restrained” and “respectful” individual.
In other words, we shouldn’t take him seriously. Oh, wait, he wants us to take him seriously, just not his “deliberately rude and offensive” Emerson Avenger “persona.”
Really, Mister Edgar, if you expect people to take your grievances seriously, how does it help to be so demanding, insulting and obnoxious as to warrant calling it a “caricature”? Doesn’t it make more sense to be your supposedly “respectful” and “restrained” self, so that people will be more inclined to listen to you?
At the very least, Robin Edgar’s using such an outrageous “front” shows very poor judgment and social skills. At worst, it is yet another example of how he tries to justify his behavior. We are once again back to wondering what to believe about him, only now he wants us to believe that there’s more than one “him”.
