TTAG has a large, enthusiastic audience. (Latest stats: 411,705 Unique Visitors per month generating 1,192,652 Pageviews). Not a fan: gun blogger Weer’d Beard. The Weerd one weckons TTAG is a false flag operation; we pretend to support the Second Amendment whilst providing a platform to anti-gunners like MikeB302000 (whose posts and comments we publish). We’re going to take our own advice on this one and avoid an unnecessary confrontation with an armed opponent. Wait. Oops. Anyway, here’s why [via ol.co.za]: “The State alleges that Nene, a security guard with Protea Coin Group, shot Van der Spuy three times after refusing to shave his beard and cut his hair on the grounds that he belonged to the Ebuhleni Shembe International church and was not permitted to cut his hair.” These bearded guys take that shit serious. FYI: TTAG’s staff are both clean-shaven and bearded, but not at the same time.
