Reader Question: The No Clovers Logo?

Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply! 

Philip asks: Could you explain your logo to me? I cannot find and explanation of its significance on your website. Thanks.

My reply: Years ago, there was a regular pest here – on the site –  who identified himself/herself as “Clover.” This person championed every government program, every action of the government; not from a principled or logical basis but just because he/she favored whatever the action or program happened to be. Cheered for laws and regulations – often using “because it’s the law” as the basis of his/her argument. Spoke disingenuously, using the predictable euphemisms of collectivism and in general typified the arbitrary, bullying authoritarian collectivist personality.

After awhile, his/her name came to be synonymous with authoritarian collectivism – at least, to the regulars here. We began to use it as a kind of shorthand for everything we oppose.

This is the origin of “Clover” as well as the No Clovers! logo!

  1. eric, you might want to hook this person up with a bunch of clover’s worst of the worst when she’d build a ridiculous, nonsensical strawman, attribute it to you and then show you what an idiot you were. Those were priceless, stupendously stupid missives that only made sense to her. I sorta miss her in a way. She was much like an ingrown toenail you can’t seem to get any relief from. Gil was a winner too who always had a clover on his comment.
