Funny how last week I talked about the fraudulent idea of “free speech” as it’s used to protect all sorts of nasty villains and bullies.
And then another rampage happens. And dozens upon dozens of youth are murdered viciously by another raving lunatic who has been inspired by some crazy manifestos. Including The Unabomber.
And anti-Muslim blogs not unlike Pam Geller’s and Robert Spencer’s.
If you’ve not had a chance to check out Atlas Shrugged, please don’t. It’s full of vile hatred and conspiracies against Muslims and any people group associated with them. The type that spew outrage about the so-called Ground Zero Mosque and that allege that every evil committed on God’s green earth is done by Muslims or their sympathizers.
And the mass murderer linked to her site fifteen times in his “manifesto”.
Of course, she is very defensive about this. And now every time another suicide bomber goes off, she wonders what liberal blogger inspired him/her.
Sadly, she doesn’t really seem to understand that the policies of First World nations in Yemen, Gaza, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iraq are more responsible for pulling the triggers than possibly any other direct or indirect influence. Poverty is and breeds violence.
But Geller, like most relatively wealthy Americans, doesn’t understand this. Glenn Beck obviously doesn’t get this. And so he blames the victims – again – calling their political camp an indoctrination space just like the Hitler youth. (Yes, we all know he says Hitler like Rudy says 9/11, like fish need water, etc.)
The scary part? I saw some people criticize it, and then, out of the woodwork, others were coming out and saying what an inspiration he is. Not apologizing. Not stepping away from. But just short of deifying.
And those that were criticizing him? Apparently, they were actively seeking to censor the voice of reason and dissent on behalf of their Dear Leader, Barack Obama.
