Desperate Charlie can't read

As of now there are 13 14 threads on the Spitzer episode on LGF (Do you reckon Charles is desperate..?), this recent one being just silly:

We’ve pointed out at least six examples of mainstream news stories that fail to even mention the word “Democrat” in connection with Eliot Spitzer. It’s so widespread it’s almost laughable
Really? You sure about that Chuckie?

"Mr Spitzer, a prominent Democrat who campaigned for ethical leadership, said sorry to his family and the public." - BBC
Charles, again, if you have trouble reading, you might want to consider investing 10$ only to spare yourself the future embarrassments..

UPDATE:

Who's using the term 'democrat' in relation to Spitzer?

Reuters
New York Times
CBS News
Wall Street Journal
The Telegraph
Village Voice
Associated Press
San Francisco Chronicle
Toronto Star
Bloomberg
CNN
USA Today
Houston Chronicle
Baltimore Sun
Cincinnati Enquirer
International Herald Tribune
Washington Post
Globe and Mail

....and many, many more....

.....it's really amazing what stuff you can get when you type 'Spitzer' 'Democrat' into Google News.

Nice to see Charles thinks six examples could possibly equate to being 'widespread' given the amount of column inches devoted to this scandal.

Anybody amused that the Sphinxter is now interested in American party politics? That ought to be enough to tell you who the jihadis are rooting for.

Sphinxter, do you ever do your physics homework? Have you ever had a girlfriend?

Re: Tex Taylor

The sphinx and M.J are almost always wrong and both are mess by themselves, but on this one I agree with the Sphinx, Charles is portraying the MSM like an evil entities in conspiracy against the Republicans. where most of his articles outsourced right from the MSM, except he twists the titles, add some unfortunate comments or entertaining notes.

But also interesting that the Sphinx did not tell M.J. what Mahv in Farsi which is Mahw in Arabic means in the post about Ahmedinejad speech which means wipe off/eliminate. "Maybe" he is pro-Islamists and Islamic dictators.

Here are Sphinx rules based on the posts he post:

Egyptian secular dictators are bad
Islamists dictators are gooood.
European terrorists are baaaad
Islamic terrorists are goooood and victims.
European bigots are bigots and Nazis.
Islamic bigots are justified,victims and you can't say they are Nazis.


Indeed he needs to buy that book at Amazon.

Tex, I frankly couldn't care less about American party politics. But I must give you kudos for flying straight past the point of this thread.
It's about how the legendary Charles Johnson denies what's staring him right in the face, just to support his frantic and pathetic smear campaign. He's done it before too.

It shouldn't matter to you whether I do my homework or not (I do, so there you go). Also note that my personal life is nothing of your concern, thank you very much.

Let me quote something that I 100% agree encapsulates Sphinx:

Egyptian secular dictators are bad
Islamists dictators are gooood.
European terrorists are baaaad
Islamic terrorists are goooood and victims.
European bigots are bigots and Nazis.
Islamic bigots are justified,victims and you can't say they are Nazis.


So true!

Tex,

Agreed, it is interesting to see jihadis rooting for the Democrats.

That alone is a reason to vote Republican.

You're Stephen Colbert right? That can only be sarcasm. Not one person on God's earth is that stupid.

X said...

On a related issue, isn't it telling that Charles Johnson thinks Obama's pastor is a bigger issue than the collapse of the American economy?

Carlyle fund caves in, Bear Stearns goes under...not an issue for our scaly Californian friend. No, much better to go after a loony priest's acquaintance...

anti-idiots, shouldn't you dump yourself in a tub of Nair, what being Persian and all?

And tex taylor, shouldn't you go back to playing World Of Warcraft or jerking off to pics of Pamela Gellar?

Lex said...

Ahh, "d" a new racist in the bunch. I prefer professional waxing, BTW. Sphinx posts about LGF and lately this is what Charles posts on, American politics. His commenters are enough reason to never vote Republican, IMHO.

Carter--um, most of them aren't very intelligent or well read, unless you count books recommended by Charles. In the "Lizard Lounge" all they discuss are guns and hunting, if that gives you any idea. I mean, I like guns myself, but too detailed discussion of camo and ammo and "you might be a redneck".

The rest of you, Sphinx is not writing from an American perspective. He hasn't lived here. At least see the difference between a Western viewpoint and someone from the Middle East! Why would he have our Western perspective? I've learned a lot from Sphinx (though no physics..lol) personally. By LISTENING and not just kicking back with knee-jerk reactions.

The Sphinxter considers Tariq Ramadan "a great Muslim", and supports the Muslim Brotherhood, including, its Palestinian chapter - Hamas.
But don't dare call him an anti-semitic supporter of Islamism and terrorism! Oh no. You know why he isn't? Because he said so.

The modern day bigot and terrorism-supporter knows these things are perceived as bad. Perhaps, exposed to Western education and values, he himself perceives them as bad. Therefore, even if his views and actions are those of the forementioned, he will never be able to admit it - not only towards others, not to himself. That's why Mister Sphinxter disavows the label, despite the fact the label describes his beliefs perfectly. Likewise, CJ disowns his fitting labels. We, however, can see them for what they are.

And last time I made a post concerning Mr. Sphinxter, I asked him a couple of questions. He avoided most of them, and the answers were pathetic. Let's try again, about one specific issue: have you donated money to Hamas or organizations who will funnel money to it? That is, have you actually, not only in word but in deed, supported terrorism?

"The Sphinxter considers Tariq Ramadan "a great Muslim", and supports the Muslim Brotherhood, including, its Palestinian chapter - Hamas."

So considering the Israeli government and its armed forces a mafia organization makes me automatically a supporter of Hamas (which has acted very stupid in many situations)? Oh please, spare me this rubbish already.

"But don't dare call him an anti-semitic supporter of Islamism and terrorism! Oh no. You know why he isn't? Because he said so."

And because _you_ say that I'm a terrorist-supporter makes it any more true? Let's see, have I been a member of any 'Islamist' organizations? No. Have I ever seen or met any terrorists and given them my support? No. Do I intend to aid terrorists in any way? No. Do I hate Jews or Judaism? No. Do I hold any ill feelings towards Israeli citizens for what their government is doing? No.
Do I think you're delusional? Obviously yes.

This is all I can respond with.

No seriously, I'm getting a kick out of you acting as if you know me very well, whereas you have never addressed me other than in form of insults, or high-nosed psychoanalytical trash. And yet all you know about me is whatever your shrieking ally called Red Tulips has falsely accused me of (The list is very long).

I've never been in a fight in my life, never had a (real) weapon in my hand, as if I'm some kind of terrorist? Who granted you the title of "Sphinx expert"?

"And last time I made a post concerning Mr. Sphinxter, I asked him a couple of questions. He avoided most of them, and the answers were pathetic.

I don't remember you asking me this, least I haven't seen it, and no I have not donated anything. Stop hallucinating already, along with your childish name-calling. "Sphinxter" says a lot about your intelligence.

Sphinx,

Yes. When you use those words 'mafia organization,' you echo qrswave, who is a known Hamas supporter. Especially when the facts are opposite to what you say.

Thank you for calling the Israeli government a 'mafia organization' while using every excuse in the book to defend Iran. It shows exactly where you stand. You claim to believe in peace, but you do not.

Stop lying. We ain't buying it.

You may not be actively a jihadist, suicide bombing people. But your ideology defends and excuses jihadism. So why exactly should I consider you anything other than an Islamic supremacist?

Why exactly should I buy your 'peace' and 'love' nonsense when you claim the one democracy in the Mideast is a 'mafia state'? You are not peace and love, except in your mind. It is not fashionable to be openly antisemitic, so you claim you 'love Jews,' but hate 'Zionists.'

I have a wake up call for you. Unless and until you apply the same standards to Al Queda and Iran that you do to Israel, you will remain a rabid antisemite who couches your hatred in 'PC' terms of being only against 'Zionism.'

Let me see you, right here, decry Iran. I want to see you, right here, recognize Iran's crimes against fellow Muslims. Let me see you, right here, condemn Deobandi supremacist Islam. Let me see you, right here, condemn the Muslim Brotherhood's supremacist Islam.

I want to see you do this without a "but" and "Well, they are bad, but Israel is worse!"

Liar.

Muslims have killed many more Muslims than Israel has.

So let's see it.

Let's see you openly condemn the Muslim Brotherhood as the evil it is, and say, openly, that Islamic terror groups are worse than Israel as they have killed more Muslim lives than Israel ever has.

Let us see you employ the same standards to Muslims that you employ to Jews. Unless you can do that, you are an antisemite.

Plain and simple.

To LGF Watch:

Do you believe Israel is a 'mafia state'? If you do, you too are hate mongers. If you do not, why exactly are you aligning with Sphinx, who is so clearly a known hate monger?

This is not just 'guilt by association.' Sphinx is a front page poster on this site, and is representing what supposedly this site stands for.

So I ask. Do you or do you not believe Israel is a 'mafia state'?

Sphinx has been revealed as a hate monger. Are the rest of you open and notorious hate mongers as well?

M.J. said...

I personally wouldn't use the term 'Mafia State', I prefer 'Multiple Human Rights Abuser'. Has a better ring to it.

PS As Israel has one of the highest levels of corruption in the western world drawing comparisons to the mafia isn't that far from the mark.

MJ,

Thanks for not denouncing, nay, tacitly agreeing with Sphinx's hate. You thus have openly declared your sympathies with terrorists over that of the one democracy in the Mideast. You speak of corruption in Israel and you ignore the rampant corruption and abuse within the rest of the Mideast, as if Israel operates in a vacuum and is somehow this particularly horribly corrupt state.

So thank you, I appreciate how you have come out as an open hate monger and an Islamophobe. (Given you are anti-Israel, you are also clearly anti-Muslim, as only in Israel are Muslims given equal voting rights and are able to enjoy equality with Jews and Christians.)

Gosh, I really do despise the rampant Islamophobia of you and Sphinx.

M.J. said...

RT:

You really are a first class troll aren't you.

You asked me to denounce 'hate'. Is calling Israel, a country, a Mafia State 'hate'? Of course it isn't. No more than if you called any other country in the world that term.

Ask an intelligent question, get an intelligent answer. Ask a silly one, get a sarcastic reply.

The rest is just strawman rubbish. Come back when you've got half a decent argument. At the moment you're making yourself look idiotic.

If you'd asked me my opinion on corruption in the Arab world then you'd be able make comment on it. I was making the point that calling Israel a 'mafia state' when it has one of the highest rates of corruption in the western world isn't a stretch of logic. If you wanted me to make a comment on the Arab world then you need to ask the question.

Red Tulips said...

M.J.,

Is calling Israel, a country, a Mafia State 'hate'? Of course it isn't.

Why not? Calling Israel a mafia state and remaining silent about the actual MASSIVE corruption of Arab states (actually, sorry, supporting said states) shows that one standard is used for Israel and another for everyone else. Why the double standard for Israel? Clearly this is due to two factors...

a) Antisemitism (i.e., this is the one Jewish state in the world).

b) Muslimophobia (Dirty Muslims are expected to be pathetic and corrupt and should not be held to a higher standard, as they are expected anyway to fail - "soft bigotry of low expectations")

I think the Muslimophobia might actually be more rampant than the antisemitism.

Israel has corruption, sure. However, its corruption is less than the entire rest of the Mideast. To then say Israel is a mafia state only echoes the words of known jihadists.

And you support such language, so I have to assume you too are Muslimophobic.

Am I the only one on here who has actual respect for Muslims?
