More On Peter Quinn

I have been looking at the people whom I have criticised over the years, and I have decided to post again about Peter Quinn, who has been criticised greatly and often here for the support he has given to the fraud and liar Daniel Cassidy, author of the ludicrous book, How The Irish Invented Slang.

Peter Quinn is a writer from New York who never missed a chance to praise his friend Cassidy in public. Quinn and people like Quinn are to blame for ignorant people thinking that Cassidy was right and that there was a grain of truth inside all of the lies.

However, the person who lies down with dogs gets up with fleas. And people like Quinn, who give resounding praise to fakes and liars because they happen to be friends of theirs are worthless people.

    I don’t know whether you’ve mentioned that the title of Thomas Cahill’s book “How The Irish Saved Civilization: The Untold Story of Ireland’s Heroic Role from the Fall of Rome to the Rise of Medieval Europe” inspired Daniel Cassidy to name his “How the Irish Invented Slang: The Secret Language of the Crossroads.”

    In matters etymological, Cassidy knew everything and understood nothing.

    Not specifically, though that book is mentioned in January’s Twit of the Month, Peter Linebaugh. As you say, this man was profoundly ignorant but he thought he knew everything. 🙂
