We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

"A dark hour for the Netherlands." You may insult Christianity all you want, but don't hurt the tender, sensitive and delicate Islamic feelings. Allah supposedly hates that, and would like your head separated from the rest of your body to emphasize his holy, sacred point.
h/t to Moonbattery for this excellent bit by Pat Condell re Geert Wilders' insane and frightening persecution. Yes, we are all sick and tired of Islam and the multicultural Mafia - and also of the Dutch-style suicidal idiocy. What's in their water? If a religious belief cannot handle a little multicultural criticism, what good is it?
Our version of Godwin's Law: This is like the Spanish Inquisition. Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.
Deeply related: Never be rude to an Arab
Come and get us, you Dutch moonbats. You are a disgrace to your heritage and your history.

What's in their water? Whatever it is it turned their balls into raisins.
The Islamists are easily offended because of their narcissism. Bullies easily take offense. It is not low self-esteem, but inflated self-esteem, that causes this oversensitive nature. They believe they should have a certain status - higher than others, actually. But they have not earned it, so they resent those who have.
It is a nearly automatic consequence of boys achieving higher status than their mothers at a very early age. The males are narcissistic in a society to the degree that the females are devalued.
I don't think I agree with the narcissism hypothesis. Muslims are taught by their religion that they ARE superior to the infidel. A feature common to most organized religion by the way, or at least it used to be before the days of PC.
I don't think narcissism has anything to do with the dynamic being discussed. The lone poor Muslim with nothing gains his glory only through Allah. The individual sense of self required for narcissism is either lacking or dormant. Subjugated to the greater 'good' of his religion.
Besides, when does a narcissist ever think they are less than others, an impossible condition for a 'real' narcissist I would think.
Now... if one were to consider the all encompassing Islamic religion as narcissistic, then... I would agree. But not the individual members of the 'hive-mind'. The drones in other words.
Sure, some have and do know those who live away from the 'hive'. Those then are able to have focus on their selves, their dreams, hopes and aspirations. But as a percentage of 'believers' I think their numbers small.
Mr. Condell gets me fired-up. I wish Rush would invite him on his show for a nice chat about multiculturalism.
I won't whine about generalizing, but I will say that over my years of teaching, I taught many Muslims. They were wonderful and I think for a period of ten years straight, the valedictorian was a Muslim. Their work and study ethics were exemplary as were their manners and willingness to fit in without joining the crazy debauchery of many of the typical American teenagers. I never saw a hint of holier-than-thou attitude; if anything, they were humble and accepting.
And yes, I do know what Mr. Condell is talking about - the much larger scale problem, not the Muslims who do accept and accommodate differences with alacrity.
I know. All the Moslems I have met have been fine folks. Two points: 1) I don't really know what they say when they aren't around me. 2) The squeaky wheels get the grease.
Reminds me of me muslim wife, BD.
Wicked witch would sell me cars when me back was turned.
Nasty thang she is.
One of the objectives of the vocal/aggressive/radical muslim is to marginalize or forcefully coerce those you describe. The leftist multi-culti jerks just enable these bullies...evil idiots!
Allah is Satan: he and his followers are going into the burning lake of fire.
Take a look at the responses to this video: the ex-hippie now pseudo-intellectual is an ineffectual, impotent twit.
I think he is referring to the comments on the youtube link where the video originally resides, here. Some of them are quite sophomoronic.
I have known a couple of muslims. My opinion - Any muslim that has yet to join the jihad simply has yet to join the jihad. That or they have yet to really explore their faith, and upon doing so will no longer claim islamic membership. I have yet to hear the moderate, peace-loving islamic leader say anything about those who are tainting the "religion of peace" with their violent antics.
"Mohamet created, when he forbade wine but allowed five wives: he created a very big thing, which we have still to deal with." -GKC
You don't offer many options there, unfortunately. For the peaceful Muslims, jihad may be: I will run a fine grocery store so that I may pay for my son or daughter to go to MIT or GIT. These Muslims are not leaders in a position to stand up and say anything. They're too busy working in a capitalistic society and understanding liberty: Freedom from and freedom to. And not disturbing the peace.
AVI... That's a very cogent analysis of Muslim narcissism, and indeed narcissism in general, which seems to affect our younger generations more than it does the older, more realistic citizens. Sometimes I think the slogan of most folks under 30 is "but what about *Me?*"
Islam is an insult to God and America.
Now that Muslim is in the White House Islamic folks consider America all theirs to do as they will.
Hussein and his Islamic bro had a good laugh over the topic of the first interviiew from a Muslim capital this week;
Q: Absolutely. Let me take a broader look at the whole region. You are planning to address the Muslim world in your first 100 days from a Muslim capital. And everybody is speculating about the capital. (Laughter) If you have anything further, that would be great. How concerned are you -- because, let me tell you, honestly, when I see certain things about America -- in some parts, I don't want to exaggerate -- there is a demonization of America.
THE PRESIDENT: Absolutely.
mohammed (sob), alleged prophet of islam, blasphemer, heretic of Mecca, pirate of the desert, murderer, criminal and troglodyte. Mohammed ibn Hanzir (with apologies to pigs), bastard scion of Molech and enemy of God and Mankind. Liar, thief and plagiarist of the two great Abrahamic faiths, mohammed the illiterate, apostle of Beelzebub and chief satanist, vomitant of the quran, a stupid name for a stupid book. Moon worshipper and chief loon, mohammed (may the fleas of a thousand camels infest his scrotum), not fit to herd pigs, or to clean up after dogs, desert whirlwind and unholy pagan, world pest, psychotic misogynist and clitorophobe. Epileptic, cross-dressing pervert, defender and paragon of paedophilia,zoophilia and coprophilia, savant of all perversions.There is one good thing about mohammed the universal champion of idiots and cretins - he is dead. Dead and now favoured denizen of the inferno, catamite of Satan and keeper of Hell's gates, dispenser of the grapes to torsoless jihadis. And I bet he stank.
