You’re traveling into area that’s next to a place that’s beside a location.
The sort of place that might contain a monster or some sort of magic mirror.
These are just some examples.
It could also be something really, really stupid.
At the rest stop ahead, a poorly stocked vending machine, a few wobbly picnic benches, a plaque to commemorate the Great Cabbage Fart Panic of 1909 placed by the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks, and….
Picture if you will a man whose head is so far up his ass he could give himself a colon exam by opening his eyes. Enter one nameless prog. Here’s what he had to say about an exchange between anti-Jihad activist David Horowitz and a Muslim college student who admitted she favored the annihilation of Jews:
First of all, I am pretty sure the woman asking the question is a plant, probably the speaker payed to be there to sensationalize his issues with Muslims. It’s highly doubtful anyone would be that open about their anti-semitism, particularly on a college campus. The assertion here is that this somehow represents the sentiments of all American Muslims or Muslims in general. You know, kind of like anti-semites insist all Jews own the banks and are money grubbing shiesters that need to be stopped. Or how the Westboro Baptists are glad soldiers die because God hates fags. Holding up extremists of any type as representative of an entire group worthy of condemnation, is no different that what the extremists are doing in the first place. In essence, extremists use an extreme minority within a group, to justify condemnation of that entire group. Someone using this video to justify their disdain and distrust of Muslims, is literally no different than posting an article about a black murderer or rapist and using it as an example to justify your hatred of black people. It is the same as equating the Westboro Baptists or Pat Robertson to ALL Christians. It’s like equating Anders Breivik and Wade Michael Page to ALL conservatives. By pointing out extreme examples as justification for bigotry, you are in essence fitting the definition of an extremist. And I am sure you will say I do that all the time….but my intent is exactly that, to show conservatives what it’s like to be lumped in and judged by your craziest extremists. And very rarely do I ever hear a conservative denounce these extremists amongst them, only deflect, defend, deny. Never do I hear “That guy is an as shoe and doesn’t represent my views.” It’s always “But Al Sharptown said this…..or Reverend Wright said that….” As a born Jew, living in am orthodox Jewish neighborhood, I can admit that just about 99% of the Jewish faith is based on their persecution. Literally nearly every holiday and every story in the Old Testament is about the Jews overcoming someone trying to exterminate them. So I wouldn’t doubt for a second, that this guy would have a plant say these things at his lecture to further his agenda.
A baseless accusation of dishonesty. At least this is a different excuse. More deflection and Tu Quoqe.
“It’s highly doubtful anyone would be that open about their anti-semitism, particularly on a college campus.”
Man, that line gets funnier every time I read it.
Next: his response to this video of how the mainstream media tries to deflect attention from the link between Islamic teachings and terrorism
Where do you find these future mall shooters videos exactly? …..Yes Islam seemingly has more extremists than most religions, particularly in other countries where fundamentalist religious zealots control the laws and government, exactly how the religious zealots in THIS country would like to. The problem of course, is that in THIS country, Islamic fundamentalists are not a major issue. You are about ten times more likely to be murdered by a cop, than a Muslim terrorist. The rights obsession with Islam and creeping Sharia law makes about as much sense as equating all Christians to the Westboro Baptists. ALL religions and ALL groups have their extremist crazies, and at the top of the list of threats to national security and terrorist plots, white supremacist Christian militia groups outnumber Islamic fundamentalist t going threats nearly 10 to 1. I am more terrified of a truck full of bearded rednecks on some country back road than I am of a brown guy on a plane. In fact Muslims are much more likely to be attacked or murdered by Christian supremacists in this country than the other way around. Anders Breivik and Wade Michael Page are perfect examples of what all the recent anti-Islam rhetoric produces and it is Muslims, not Christians that are now in the line of fire. White Christian supremacists have infiltrated nearly every level of our government and are as we speak introducing, writing, and passing legislation that has a real effect on the public, a power that Muslims of any stature will NEVER have in this country. Meanwhile we have Christians homophobic, racist, sexist, religiously intolerant zealots in positions of power decrying Islam for being homophobic, sexist, racist, and religiously intolerant. The truth of the matter is no matter what the religion, religious extremists are dangerous to everyone, but in this country the most effective a day dangerous ones are most certainly NOT of the brown persuasion.
Deflection, Tu Quoqe, and then the race card. It’s a regular derp sundae.
“Yes Islam seemingly has more extremists than most religions, particularly in other countries where fundamentalist religious zealots control the laws and government, exactly how the religious zealots in THIS country would like to.”
This is a real masterpiece here: conflating violent Muslims fundamentalists with non-violent Christian fundamentalists and what Muslim terrorists actually do with what Christian fundamentalists might (read: wouldn’t) do.
“Islam seemingly has more extremists than most religions…”
But it’s all an illusion! Pay no attention to those dead French cartoonists behind the curtain!
