Why Are Conservative Twitterers Hating the SOOPER?!?!

You might be wondering why your friendly neighborhood Sooper Conservative Mexican was at the receiving end of an unholy onslaught of conservative ire.  Well let me tell you.

It all started like this….

I heard the story that Ann Romney’s plane had filled with smoke and had to make an emergency stop.  I retweeted this story and then found out that she was ok. So then I thought to look for liberal hatred, knowing there’d be a lot of it… I found this:

[note the link is gray, because the tweet has been deleted]
I wanted to let my fellow conservatives on twitter know that idiot liberals were tweeting terrible things about Ann Romney, so I retweeted it… unfortunately, I forgot to make clear that I DIDN’T ENDORSE THE TWEET.

Then Twitchy reposted my tweet, because that filthy liberal deleted his original.

Then the friendly fire started coming in.

People didn’t realize I wasn’t endorsing, they just assumed I was.. so this is what I get!!!

It even went international!!

After about an hour of defending myself, and asking the team at to help me out, finally, I get some backup:


And of course… because we’re talking about my followers here, there came out the jokers!

Probably the most hilarious response was from John Grace of the Damaged Hearing podcast – I about died reading his tweets:






Wow! So that was fun! Actually I had a lot of laughs, even though it was annoying to have to bat away conservative attacks. And I got a whole bunch of new followers, so let’s call it even… Now, if you want to see some REAL HATRED, you gotta check out my collection of LIBERAL hate tweets directed at your favorite Mexy Conservative!

  • Reading is hard, Soopy.

  • Great. Now twitter is going to spend a week focusing on another epic Sooper gaffe, when we should be talking about more important things, like how awesome my hair is.

  • On the flip side, I’m happy to see so many sticking up for Ann Romney. Have a cerveza on me.

  • On the flip side, I’m happy to see so many sticking up for Ann Romney. Have a cerveza on me.

  • We love you @SooperMexican in a manly bro to bro way of course.

  • Soop, people who have a kneejerk response to that type of stuff without looking deeper don’t deserve the pixels on your screen.

  • I think a lot of people are new to Twitter and don’t know how it works, probably the same people who still have VCRs in their houses that blink 12:00 non-stop. They get mad at me when other people @ mention me or when other people RT my tweets, as if I can control that! Geez, maybe there is something to the left’s assertions that people on our side are dumb. I loves ya, Sooper!

  • I’ve been on Twitter for roughly a week and I have already worked out that RT means you retweeted something. So sorry you had to go through this. FWIW, you are awesome and I’m really glad I found both you and The Morlock revolt.

    One has to wonder when where these people sit when @DLoesch RT all the hate she gets directed at herself, she must endorse it.

  • Pablo

    Yeah, we do have our share of stupids, don’t we.

  • Merry Poppet

    Nobody who’s familiar with your site would have believed that crap for a second.

    “WHY Are Conservative Twitterers Hating the SOOPER?!?!”

    Duh! Mexican, silly. Everybody knows that.

  • ACPZed

    Happens to the best of us. Remember, in this hyper-partisan environment, leaving out one word can bring on a torrent of “friendly fire.”

    Looks like you have already gotten some new followers, once the storm blew over, so look on the bright side.

    Sooper, you rock, but the twitter medium sucks. It brings out the idiots. Ignore them.

  • Love the @sooper

  • I stood up for you Soop. Sorry you had to go thru all that.

  • One of my tweets showed up on Twitchy the same way–pointing out something awful somebody else said, and mistaken for somebody *endorsing* that awful thing

    Maybe another code along with RT might help clarify situations like that. Like !! meaning can you believe this?!!

  • What’s a VCR?
