I’m Famous

Filed under: Golf,Media — Bunker @ 5:27 pm

Tim McDonald at TravelGolf takes a look at golf bloggers, and I’m #3 on the list:

Bunkermulligan.net is a right-wing Nazi masquerading as a blogger….

You know you’ve made the big time when someone calls you a Nazi. They aren’t even smart enough to know that Nazis are socialists, mostly following Marxist dictate.

That follows hot on the heels of CNN contacting me about featuring this blog on “Inside Politics” along with other right-wing blogs. That has a few of the left-wing bloggers pretty upset, as I discovered searching for info on the program. One went to the trouble to do an audit and found that twice as many conservative blogs are featured on the program as are “progressive” blogs. The comments to his post reflect a great deal of angst about this. All are certain CNN is trying to out-Fox FoxNews. They really shouldn’t be concerned. I didn’t get any kind of bump in hits from being mentioned on the program.

They found me through my latest post on the Arianna Project, which must have been the feature for the day. Not the best television from what I’ve found–two women sitting in front of monitors looking at sites. I appreciate the mention, although I’m not sure it will help their ratings.


  1. Mike-I know this is rolling off your back but I’m pretty incensed right now about that Nazi jab.

    Godwin’s Law in a golf column. Unbelievable.

  2. Nazi…libertarian…who can tell the difference? This may be your path to the Masters – Well Done!

  3. I found it quite odd that an apparently commercial site like, on golf for gosh sake, would take that sort of jab. I left a comment with an unnamed reference to Godwin’s Law.

  4. Mike, admit it, you’re no Libertarian. You really are a right winged conservative. That’s what I see when I read your blog.

    People may be incensed by the Nazi remark, but history does repeat itself, unfortunately. I find it harder and harder to see the difference between the bully we have as a President and the German Bully who hid in a bunker and killed his cowardly self.

  5. Mary, history does repeat itself. Hitler, a socialist, embraced parts of Mussolini’s Fascism so as to make himself distinct from his sworn enemy, Joe Stalin, another socialist.

    Seems to be happening with leftists who like to call themselves “progressives”.

    Besides, you are so far left that pretty much everyone else in the world is relatively conservative.

    Anyway, I’m sure his “Nazi” comment was intended to generate a link on my site (which it got) so as to boost his traffic. He probably quadrupled his daily hits with my link!

  6. People who use “Nazi” against others in cases like this are pretty much never using the complete definition of Nazism as the basis of the comparison. It’s become nothing more than a grandiose way of calling someone a bully, someone who gets overly forceful or vitriolic in the presentation of their position, to the point where you’d actually fear violent suppression of dissenting opinion — a key element of the fascism that got rolled into nazism’s socialism, no?

    Heh. Someday I will write a post where every word ends in in -isms.

    All that said, I don’t think it descibes Bunker in the least. It’s certainly true that he tends to support the vast majority of GOP positions over the Democratic positions, but he wrote a fantastic post just the other day on how much the major political parties are hurting this country.

  7. Thanks, Bogey. I don’t support those issues because they are “Republican issues” but because I think they are the right thing to do.

    Nor do I reject “Democratic issues” because they come from Democrats.

    I try very hard to keep an independent vision–not always successfully.
