So why would Robin Edgar try to appropriate Saint Patrick’s Day in a feeble attempt to draw attention to himself?
Perhaps to show disapproval at the leaders of the UUA’s ‘Standing on the Side of Love’ campaign using Valentine’s Day to raise awareness of the need for compassion in such issues as same-sex marriage and immigrant rights.
Then again, we have seen Robin Edgar find even the flimsiest excuse to go off on yet another rant. This one has half a dozen of his signature ‘Big Fat U*U’ perseveration, and five accusations of UUs being ‘anti-‘ something.
Not to mention more snide name-calling and insistence that this is all ‘satire.’ Forget that it serves no constructive purpose whatsoever. Robin Edgar is constantly rationalizing and excusing his outlandish behaviour, his endless lashing out, his berating and insulting even those who have (and want) nothing to do with him.
Robin Edgar talks about ‘getting his Irish up’ and ‘opening a can of whup-ass’, and then declaring that he’s not talking literally. Most likely, he is not being literal in his use of violent phraseology … yet. But for somebody who has carried this much rage for this long, it is only a matter of time before he loses control completely and explodes, rationalizing further that the only way for him to get the attention his narcissism demands is to do real damage to those he has continually demeaned and devalued while hypocritically attempting to put himself on the pedestal of judging UUs for not meeting some unrealistic idealized standard of perfection.
We would agree that UUs are not perfect. We are all, after all, human beings and not angels. But there is a difference between indignation towards the wrongs of the world, and blind consuming rage which does nothing but denigrate the targets of one’s obsession.
