Where hate mongering leads....

....I would imagine if a group of 'Muslim' youths did this Chuckles and his acolytes would be typing so fast the Cheetos dust from their fingers would create a small orange tornado.

Fortunately for him the victims here are an Algerian immigrant and her one year old son. Something tells me the wingnutosphere will pass on this one.

If only it had been committed some French youths in Paris, eh Charles?

An Algerian woman and her one-year-old baby were sexually assaulted in broad daylight in Glasgow in a racially aggravated attack. The 33-year-old woman was pushing her son in his pram through the Yoker area of the city when a group of young men threw stones at them and kicked the woman. One man then exposed himself, indecently assaulted the woman and attempted to perform an indecent act on the one-year-old boy.

The woman, who cannot be identified, had her headscarf torn from her head. She escaped by snatching her son from his pram and running away, leaving behind the pram, headscarf and a baby's bottle.
Racism, bigotry, violence, misogyny and child abuse. All committed by non-Muslims. Nothing to see here, move along.

Nobody - not even LGF - is saying that non-Muslims are incapable of violence, but that's not really your point, is it?

Your point is that LGF concentrates on Islam. Well that's the blogosphere for you. Blogs concetrate on different subject matter. You wouldn't expect a football blog to post stories about Rugby to balance things out. I wouldn't expect you to start going on about the sins of Wonkette.

LGF concentrates on the evil side of Islam. To me this is a good thing. There's a lot of things in the evil side of Islam that should be scrutinised, exposed and slammed.

Islamic supremacism would be an acceptable subject for left wing blogs...if you replace the word "Islamic" with "white". As it is, it is down to LGF to cover it.

LGF covers many subjects that others don't.

The mainstream media shy away from criticism of this. They also won't touch Islam's uniquely barbaric (and doctrinally sanctioned) homophobia, misogyny and medieval punishments.

There's the female circumcision, there's the morphing of Western laws and freedoms to suit the Islamic paradigm.

There's the attempt to wipe out the Jewish traditional homeland (a tiny reservation in the middle of a huge Arab & Muslim continent) and of course there is the terrorism and the global Islamic imperialism that it aims to introduce.

There's also the subject of the hate-filled racist hypocritical wackos that side with the Islamist because of the "common enemy" (Bush & Israel).

None of these would be touched, if it weren't for blogs like LGF.

Want a liberal echo chamber while the world becomes subsumed in 7th century barbarity? Fine. Most of us don't. The left control the broadcast media and many of the newspapers. They can't control the blogs. I guess this pisses you off, but hey - tough!

With the world at war and antisemitism rife, we aren't going to shut up, just to please cowardly sentimentality or tacit sedition.

Live with it. Deal.

Yep, and the illuminati control the banks. The alien-lizards control the White House and FOX News is a communist hoax.

PS LGF concentrates on the evil side of Islam?

Stormfront concentrates on what it percieves as the evil side of Judaism, Islam, ethnic minorities and gays. Doesn't mean it should be tolerated does it?

I love it when they bring up anti-Semitism as a reason for LGF, as if LGF helps to fight anti-Semitism. If anything LGF would harden anti-Semites view of Jews as the only 'Jewish voice' that is broadcast there is the wacko Zionist one.

Firtsly, I am not saying that a sinister, secret cabal controls the media - just that it has a liberal slant. Political correctness dictates coverage.

If it weren't for the anti-idiotarian blogosphere, we wouldn't hear about many things, but suppressing information isn't going to make the world a bettter place.

Secondly, Islam is not a race or an ethnicity. It is a belief system. If someone wants to criticise a race, that's bigotry. If someone wants to criticise a belief system, then that's a "freedom of speech" issue.

We should be as free to criticise Islam, as an atheist blog is free to criticise God, or a socialist blog is free to criticise capitalism.

There may be a case for claiming bigotry if Charles was attacking Muslims in general - but he isn't. LGF regularly gives coverage to progressive Muslims & Arabs. LGF doesn't attack Muslims - it attacks the violent, barbaric, imperialist, supremacist monsters in its midst.

LGF and other blogs do this - not to single out Islam - but to cover an area that nobody else will.

In attacking sexism, homophobia, barbarity and the denial of human rights, LGF should be championed by Liberals...but value systems have been screwed up since the election of Bush.

Lastly, Stormfront does attack Jews, Muslims, gay people etc. But whereas LGF are dedicated to attacking evil extremes, Stormfront are just into promoting their own evil extreme.

Stormfront are just the Aryan version of many Islamist hate groups (you know - the ones that should be given a free pass).

If history has taught us anything, it's that Jewhaters will be Jewhaters regardless.

I'd rather be a Jew that stands up to the haters than one that lies down in the mistaken belief that being complient and subservient will save my kosher ass.

LGF regularly turns up stories about Muslims allegedly behaving badly....wether its about their faith or not...for example 'immigrant' stabs local in Belgium...Charles posts about it....later turns out the 'immigrant' was Polish.

Charles Johnson just churns out stories that demonise Muslims in general and let's his readers go to town on the bigotry. He's no better than your racist shock jocks like Hal Turner.

As for giving people a free pass, nice strawman. LGFW as the name suggests is dedicated to not giving Charles Johnson a free pass. To assume that means LGFW condones Islamic funamentalists is frankly idiotic.

Yep, but LGF ie Charles Johnson himself only attacks those things when they're committed by Muslims and people that may be Muslim. Surely these things are universal?

As for sexism, check out the thread about the female sailor that was captured by the Iranians and tell me your average LGF'er is 'against' sexism. As for the denial of Human Rights, how about affording some to the victims of American war crimes? Israeli occupation? Nah didn't think you would.

If by 'stand up' you mean liquidating the Arab presence in Palestine then you'll fit right in with the LGF crowd. 'Standing up' with the nutjobs on either side will end up in tears.

You might not condone Islamic supremacism, but you have set yourself against the main site that condemns it.

I can understand Muslims being sensitive to criticism of other Muslims. I have seen the numerous sites (far left, far right and Islamist) that attack the Jews.

If I was a moderate Muslim, there would have to be a voice inside me that says "hang on, though...". The fact is that within Islam there is a major problem and it isn't some fringe thing that can be writtten off.

It would be far better if Muslims themselves were loudly and publically rounding on the Koranic literalists, the Islamic imperialists, the choppers, stoners and hangers, the suicide bombers etc. But I don't see that happening. Perhaps ghetto mentality and peer presure prohibits this. Perhaps it's the death threats meted out to brave souls like Wafa Sultan, Irshad Manji, Hirsi Ali et al.

Either way, there's an over-riding point:

It should not be seen as any kind of sin to speak out against an ideology. Any ideology is up for grabs - particularly one that we are at war with or one that chops off limbs for petty crimes and wants to take over the world.

Stopping me, Charles or anyone else criticising this ideology is a leap towards fascism.

Who's stopping anyone? You have every right to say what you want. Just as LGFW has the right to point to the fact that LGF is a site that feeds on hatred and bigotry.

Unlike Charles of course who's regularly tried to get LGFW banned. Who exactly is having their free speech threatened here?

Palestine is right up there with Sealand, Nania and Atlantis in the league table of imaginary Kingdoms.

Okay - Sealand might have more of a case.

Palestine was just a name the West gave to the ancient Jewish Kingdoms of Israel and Judea.

For the record, nearly half the land mass we defined as "Palestine" is located in todays Jordan, Syria & Lebanon - not that there's any presure on those countries to give up land for yet another purely Arab state in the region.

And no - I don't want to wipe out the Palestinians. Like most Jews, I just want our homeland to be left in peace.

Arabs got 95% of Middle Eastern Ottoman Empire, but like most Jews I'd be prepared to give up more of the scant area belonging to Israel, if it means that Israel can continue to exist.

Sadly, this is not an acceptable option for the Palestinian government whose own covenet contains the thoughtful words:

"The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews."

forgive me - i was under the impression that you want to see LGF suppressed or removed from the Net.

The headline of the site is...

'Keeping an eye on those rabid racists at Little Green Footballs'

See the 'keeping an eye' bit? Yes?

That's not the same as 'campaigning to shut it down'. Understand?

Oh bullshit. LGF doesn't "condemn Islamic supremacism". They're shills for the Likud Party and the Bush Administration.

(and note that the term "Islamic supremacism" is merely the neo nazi/stormfront term "Jewish supremacism" with one word changed)

When John Kerry criticized Saudi Arabia during the Democratic National Convention, Johnson attacked him for it.

So please just top it. LGF is a white supremacist hate site. That's it. Period. Full stop.

cokane said...

i hope these people who toss around the "anti-semite" slur one day educate themselves a little more.

Do you LGFers realize that Arabs are a semitic people? That Arabic is a semitic language?

Who's the anti semite? The leftist that says "Israel has committed warcrimes"? Or the LGFer who says "Nuke the Paleosimians", "Nuke Mecca"?

But the White supremacist movement hates Jews and Israel.

Don't you mean that LGF is a "Jewish supremacist" site?

yeah - it's moronic to think that "antisemitism" means hatred of Jews when the literal meaning is hatred of all semitic people.

Just like it's moronic for pinky/yellow people call themselves "white" or when people who have never been to Africa call themselves "African Americans".

I guess "Asian American" should also encompass Jews because literal meanings are soooo very important.

cokane said...

you have a point there anonymous

still you must admit, there is an interesting irony in how anti-semitic lgf is, when you take the world literally.

It isn't moronic in the least, the term 'anti-Semitism' was coined to describe the oppression and prejudice against Jews. No matter what the word semite covers, the term was originally used simply to describe that.

The term Semite refers broadly to speakers of a language group which includes both Arabs and Jews. However, the term antisemitism is specifically used in reference to attitudes held towards Jews. The word antisemitic (antisemitisch in German) was probably first used in 1860 by the Austrian Jewish scholar Moritz Steinschneider in the phrase "antisemitic prejudices" (German: "antisemitische Vorurteile"). Steinschneider used this phrase to characterize Ernest Renan's ideas about how "Semitic races" were inferior to "Aryan races." These pseudo-scientific theories concerning race, civilization, and "progress" had become quite widespread in Europe in the second half of the 19th century, especially as Prussian nationalistic historian Heinrich von Treitschke did much to promote this form of racism. In Treitschke's writings Semitic was synonymous with Jewish, in contrast to its usage by Renan and others.

German political agitator Wilhelm Marr coined the related German word Antisemitismus in his book "The Way to Victory of Germanicism over Judaism" in 1879. Marr used the phrase to mean hatred of Jews or Judenhass, and he used the new word antisemitism to make hatred of the Jews seem rational and sanctioned by scientific knowledge. Marr's book became very popular, and in the same year he founded the "League of Antisemites" ("Antisemiten-Liga"), the first German organization committed specifically to combatting the alleged threat to Germany posed by the Jews, and advocating their forced removal from the country.

So far as can be ascertained, the word was first widely printed in 1881, when Marr published "Zwanglose Antisemitische Hefte," and Wilhelm Scherer used the term "Antisemiten" in the January issue of "Neue Freie Presse". The related word semitism was coined around 1885. See also the coinage of the term "Palestinian" by Germans to refer to ethnic Jews, as distinct from the religion of Judaism.
