While they slept

Having scrimped the change for a spare hard drive off of his mom Charlie J is back in business, but during his absence we had the pleasure (ok, it was more like pain) of peeking at other angles of the wingnut-o-sphere, and boy is it ugly out there.

If you thought LGF was a hangout for genocidal lunatics, you'll be surprised just how much further a certain 'Debbie Schuessel' has taken things. Call us innocent, but we'd only vaguely heard about Ms Schuessel before, so we weren't quite prepared for what we found here after a tip-off from one of our readers.

Obviously, it's de rigeur among the American blogerati to belittle a city of close to 8 million people _ with a history four times longer than the entire United States _ as 'Londonistan' these days, so Londoners might not immediately feel well-disposed to Schuessel.

But it doesn't help that her questionable opinions are complemented by a complete disregard for facts.

First of all she says the keffiye is a symbol of Islam. Duh.

Next, she touts the stat that Muhammed is the 2nd most popular name in Britain, ignoring the inconvenient fact that less than 2% of male babies are called Muhammed _ even with a Muslim population of around 3 %. What's more, many of those Muhammad's will be just one of the names given to a baby.

Then there's this line: "by the time of the 2012 games, Muslims will likely dominate and rule Britain". Let's ignore the oozing racism here and just ask her for some sort of reference to back that up. Debbie, can you hear us?

And finally, there's this whopper: Schuessel claims that the logo for the London Olympics was "subsidized" by the U.S., which is "by far the largest payor to the IOC." Wow. Does she even know how the IOC works? Does she realize that if anything, the US OC is going to make money out of the 'Londonistan Olympics'? That it's British taxpayers, including British Muslim taxpayers, who will have to stump up to host the world and this stupid logo in their city in five years? That American companies will be making a tidy profit from sponsorship deals while Londoners put up with rate and rent increases?

Oh boy, bring back Johnson. At least his lunacy has limits!

You should get out & see the world wingnut style. Besides LGF & Schlussel, get a load of Masada2000 which says that Jewish female peace activists "need a good reaming," and Steven Plaut--convicted of libel in an Israeli court--who denounced Jewish peace activists as 'kapos' & makes common cause w. Alan Dershowitz; and Rachel Neuwirth who calls for Jewish peace activists to be tried for crimes against humanity.

It's an ugly world out there. I'm proud to say that I've been threatened w. a lawsuit by Neuwirth & another Israeli right-winger. The price we pay for having our say...

In order for the Muslim population to increase to a majority between now and 2012, each of the approximately 1 million Muslim women in the UK would have to bear 28 children by then. Or, given a one-per-year average for baby production, the UK would have to admit approximately 5 million Muslim immigrants per year.

Which begs the question: Is Miss Schl├╝ssel insane, or stupid, or both?

I've emailed Debbie several times asking her to provide an explanation for her deliberate use of misinformation.

No reply so far...

To which race is this "racism" directed? You need to "back that up."
