John Halstead is a troll racist. He bashes trolls without apology. Does he speak of other races in this way? No, elves, fairies, pixies, nixies … even goblins are safe from his contempt. He only targets trolls. His latest troll target was Lucius S. Helsen. Helsen explains:
“Now, have I mocked him? Sure. I laughed at some of his really bad arguments and made fun of them. Did I insult him? Well, I called him an idiot for making such poor cases for his position, to be sure. Did I call his children trolls? Yeah, they managed to basically commit a series of actions which fit Halstead’s own definition of trolling. And if I am truly a troll, calling his kids trolls is no insult, it is recognizing a kindred spirit.
“It’s just that Halstead hates trolls and can’t imagine his kids being them. I imagine it was quite a painful thing to consider. Like a devout Catholic realizing his son is gay.“
Halstead is a troll racist. Trolls are people too — just like gay people. They have rights. They have feelings. We need to stand up for the trolls like Lucius S. Helsen.
First they come for the trolls. Then they come for the other fairy folk. And then they came for you—and there was no one left to speak for you.
