The Prozi bird cage liner, Salon (socialist), has a writer (for lack of a more descriptive word) who really loves putting her utter ignorance of history on display. While mocking the knowledge of history of others, of course.
On Wednesday’s edition of “Outnumbered,” the hosts discussed ISIS’ beheading of journalist James Foley, and co-host Andrea Tantaros conflated the small group of extraordinarily violent rebels with all of Islam.
A very, very small group. Minuscule, even. Barely even there! It’s truly a mystery how they got to sit on 1/3 of Iraq and 1/3 of Syria, considering their utter insignificance. Why, there can’t be more than three or four players on Caliph al-Bama’s Junior Varsity Team.
Funny how pretty much every single violent conflict on the planet involves those “small groups of “extraordinarily” (nothing extraordinary about it) violent “rebels”, isn’t it.
“A lonesome cowboy rode into the sunset. Another lonesome cowboy rode into the sunset. And another one, and another one, and pretty soon the sunset was utterly obscured by hundreds of thousands of lonesome cowboys.”
Joanna then goes on to quote the lovely Andrea’s suggestion that the only way to deal with rabid animals is to put them down with a bullet to the head, which is absolutely correct. After which Joanna decides to go all in for the Idiot of the Day prize:
First of all, Andrea, if you’ve studied the history,
First of all, Joanna, if you’d studied grammar, you’d note that “history” does not require a preceding “the”, unless it’s followed immediately by “of [insert topic here].” You’ll note, for instance, that His Imperial Majesty didn’t include a “the” before “grammar”, because that would just be… ignorant. And we might be in danger of scoring a writing gig at your rag if we were to display such utter illiteracy, which would be even worse than merely appearing ignorant.
…you’ll know that Islam has been responsible for some of the most vibrant, productive civilizations for thousands of years.
Second of all, Joanna, if you’d studied math, you’d know that 1,400 does not equal “thousands.” You’d need at least two of said thousands to warrant a plural “s”.
Third of all, Joanna, if those “civilizations” were so “vibrant and productive”, then where are they now? Did their vibrancy and productiveness not include basic survival skills, or were they just too darn busy productively vibrating in perfect harmony to be bothered with such minor details? Also, Joanna, kindly explain to us how it is that whatever remains of those pillars of civilization is still stuck in the century that Islam was founded? Indoor plumbing? The Roman Empire had that, and they beat the “vibrant and productive civilizations (just how many of them were there, anyway?) of Islam by almost a millennium. Considering how great Islam was at stealing the accomplishments of other civilizations and claim the credit for themselves (see “math” and “astronomy”, to name two), one might be forgiven for assuming that they’d at least have picked up that much.
What, exactly, was the nature of said “vibrancy” and “productiveness” anyway? The sack of Constantinople? The Gates of Vienna? Tours? Have they made any achievements outside of the realms of military conquest (or ignominious defeat), sacking of truly civilized cities and putting the inhabitants to the sword? Is “convert or die” a symbol of their clear superiority over everybody? Clitoridectomies? Stoning rape victims for “adultery?” Stoning homosexuals? They still do that, you know, with the enthusiastic approval of their fellow Muslims.
You might want to look that word up in a dictionary not written by Noam Chimpsky.
Just where in the name of Pluto’s cock did you “study” history, Joanna? Did you play “Assassin’s Creed” for a whole entire weekend or something?
Tell us, Joanna, did your family spend the last umpteen generations breeding for ignorance, or is it just a talent that comes naturally to you?
Did it ever occur to you that after tens of thousands of Islamic atrocities your “tiny extremist minority” pablum might be wearing a little thin, that maybe it would have been helpful to your doe-eyed theory if just once the rest of the Islamic world were to have stood up as one and said “enough already, not in our fucking names!”?
If Christians, for instance, were to suddenly erupt into outbreaks of beheadings, infanticide, rape and vandalism, do you really think that Christians the world over would just sit down and say “ho-hum” and, more importantly, would the likes of you accept that and excuse all of Christendom with a “but those are just a tiny minority of extraordinarily violent Christians?”
No, you wouldn’t. And you’d be damn right not to, were the rest of Christendom to not utter a peep in protest, but we all know that wouldn’t happen, don’t we?
Those hypothetical murderous Christian extremists would be hunted down by other Christians, hunted down and executed and set on fire faster than you blinkered idiots could word a stern diplomatic missive of disapproval.
So kindly shut up, Joanna. Just go away. Stick your fingers in your ears and go play with your transgendered, inclusive Barbie dolls until the grownups have finished patching up the security blanket under which you sleep every night. At which point a simple “thank you” would be nice but, to tell you the truth, we wouldn’t hold our breaths waiting for it.
Oddly enough, the media has been busy scrubbing all trace of the video of the koranimals’ brutal murder away.
Wouldn’t want the unwashed masses to get the “wrong ideas” about those poor, misunderstood, oppressed representatives of the “religion of peace”, would we?
Watching the Junior Varsity slowly hacking off the head of an innocent journalist just might make people unreasonably… angry, and how’s that going to help the administration with getting support for their next “muslim outreach” program or demands that Israel make concessions in return for not being murdered in their sleep by the koranimals.
His Imperial Majesty would only wish that the West would stop expressing shock, SHOCK WE TELL YOU! every time another display of the subhuman brutality of koranimals becomes known.
Either you fools are putting on a wholly unconvincing show of pretending ignorance, or you’re really, really, really slow learners seeing as how those sand slugs have been doing nothing but what they did to James Wright Foley just now ever since their pedophile prophet rolled off the still bleeding body of his freshly raped, 9-year-old “bride.”
Which happened 1,400 years ago.
Your “shock” and “surprise” really doesn’t do you any favors, you know.
Again. Tom DeLay, also not guilty of anything, was the last time the communist cunts in Austin tried to nail an Evil Republican.
This will turn out no differently.
But it’s a huge compliment to Governor Perry, because the only times the commies on the socialist reservation that is Austin pull this stunt is when a Republican really, really frightens them. Governor Perry just earned a few extra “Run in ’16″ points in His Majesty’s book.
If the National Socialist Democrat Workers’ Party isn’t pulling all the stops to slime, attack, libel and destroy you, then you’re not worthy of our vote, because you’re not doing anything.
As to the “complaint”, they have no grounds. They can scream all day long that the Governor used his veto power to get a drunken whore to resign from office after she’d been arrested, charged and convicted for driving with enough alcohol in her blood to to make the Big Lebowski’s liver spontaneously explode, (and what horrible “crime” is THAT? Clearly we need more government officials thinking themselves above the law!), but what they can’t do is point to a single sentence in the law making it illegal.
Which is, we believe, what indictments are about. Making the decision that an illegal act was likely committed here and a trial should be held.
But in the Travis Oblast, it means “we don’t like this one and he/she should be punished.”
Oh well. Fascists will be fascists.
LC & IB Angrywebmaster has a post up about the whole St Louis Mess™. Not about who did what to whom and why, the subject of endless and, in many cases (looking at you, Lame Stream Media) unsubstantiated speculation across the Internet, but about the whole militarization of our police departments. Read the whole thing, for it is good and touches upon so much more than the little tidbit His Majesty wants to comment on:
Part of the problem with the police in Ferguson is the ongoing militarization of law enforcement in the United States. It’s out of control and police, being human, like to play with their shiny new toys.
Yep. It is indeed human. All too human. We’ve never mentioned this before because there are so many other examples but, really, because we’re ashamed of it and it revealed something about our young self that we’d rather we had never learned.
His Majesty must have been about 12 at the time, and our class was putting up a school play about WWII and Nazism in Germany. Heavy subject, yes. Of course, as part of that, we had to have props and costumes and the like. Such as HJ uniforms complete with armbands and such for those of us playing the asshole yoots of the time. And a script, of course, full of the rancor and hatred and casual brutality towards the “other” that was so typical of that age.
And then something happened inside of us. We don’t know exactly what it was that triggered it or if it was just something that slowly built up, but suddenly those of us playing the Nazis started behaving like it even outside of practice sessions. We’d be cruising around the hallways in our costumes between practice sessions and during lunch recess because it was easier than changing all the time, and then something… happened. We’d clear out tables and laugh at the unfortunates suddenly “displaced”, we’d corner people trying to point out to us that we were, in a word, being the utter assholes that we were behaving as and ask them if they wanted to “make something of that”, etc. etc. In other words, we became the hateful animals whose uniforms we were wearing without even knowing it, without even making an effort.
Because we had those shiny new “toys” and it’d be a shame not to use them, right?
Anyway, it didn’t last long, thankfully, before the adults at school put a stop to our behavior, and we had a long and interesting session discussing what had happened. And all of us were utterly shocked at what we’d become. I obviously don’t know that the others were honest, but I know that I was. Maybe it was a good thing it happened, because it taught us to beware of our Inner Asshole™. But it sure as Hades didn’t feel like a Good Thing™ at the time.
All of this to say that yes, you give a toy, a uniform, something to a bunch of human beings, and sooner or later at least some of them will want to play with them and start looking for an excuse to do so. Not because they’re really assholes, well some of them statistically would have to be, but because all of us have that inner asshole, and it’s just trying to find a crack it can creep out of.
So yes, Virginia, if you hand out tanks, drones, machine guns, howitzers and tactical nukes to a bunch of people and tell them that they are theirs to use, sooner or later they WILL use them. It’s a statistical certainty.
Because we ALL have that Inner Asshole™. No exceptions. The only difference is in how aware we are of it and how good we are at keeping it locked up.
You’d have to put your brain in a box – lock it with chains and a padlock – and send it into orbit for the next year to actually take anything Eric Holder says seriously anymore. Holder criticizes police response in Ferguson, says he is ‘deeply concerned’ about use of military equipment Attorney General Eric

Allahpundit is getting all queasy just thinking about what the ISIS types might be doing with the Yazidi women and children that they’re capturing, and we honestly can’t blame him. About the getting queasy part, that is. Although our reaction is more along the lines of projectile vomiting and an oath to kill every last

Everything old is new again, and Europe is rapidly returning to its anti-Semitic roots: In totally unrelated news, the British government revealed on Tuesday that they are suffering from a terminal case of moral equivalency and are prepared to cut off military aid to Israel if “significant hostilities” resume in Gaza.

Since there still appears to be some regarding who owns the butchery that is Iraq now, at least among one person around here. This is for you, Deej: There, much better now, right? Thatisall.
His Imperial Majesty is about ready to explode here, but let’s get a few things settled first. Such as the question as to whether the genocidal mess in Iraq is Komrade Obama’s fault or not. Here’s Kaliph Obama in 2012: FACT: President Obama kept his promise to end the war in Iraq. Romney called the
