Does Metal Jesus make KELSEY STAND ON A BOX!?!?!

I just want to say one thing: The path down which Metal Jesus Rocks wants to lead us is empty and bleak. For practical reasons, I have to confine my discussion to areas that have received insufficient public attention or in which I have something new to say. What I’m saying is this: Metal Jesus Rocks likes to argue that he can change his self-centered ways. Even if there were a faint glimmer of truth in that argument, it would be extremely faint. The truth is that whenever I highlight the threat of snippy Maoism in a letter such as this, Metal Jesus Rocks issues a standard response. First, he denies the threat itself. Then, he condemns those who describe him as a disrespectful fraudster. This is basically Metal Jesus Rocks’s way of encouraging humorless wallies to see themselves as victims and, therefore, live by alibis rather than by honest effort. Let me end by appealing to our collective sense of humanity: Metal Jesus Rocks and his associates are wolves in sheep’s clothing who will strip the world of conversation, friendship, and love in the coming days.
