On Charles' latest post as of now ( http://littlegreenfootballs.com/article/32809_Mission_Statement_of_the_Day ), we find something positive to report on:
Mission Statement of the Day
I’ve posted this many times in LGF comments, but with the increasing extremism of the so-called “anti-jihad movement,” it’s time to make it a front page post.
If you argue that it’s vitally necessary to deport the entire Muslim population of the United States, you are ADVOCATING MASS MURDER.
Yes, I’m shouting.
There is no way in hell that you can uproot millions of people, most of whom have done nothing wrong, and throw them all out of the country, without committing mass violence. People will resist this with all their hearts.
No decent American would stand for it. It’s an un-American, evil idea to its very core.
And not only that, it’s a stupid, empty, meaningless fantasy that will never happen. When you start ranting about it at LGF, you achieve nothing but to drag everyone here into the muck, and make us all look like extremists, fascists, and brain-dead morons. Only a very few comments like this appear at LGF, but they can tar the whole site by association.
Unfortunately, there are quite a few “anti-jihad” blogs that have no problem whatsoever with this kind of hate speech, and some that actually invite it, so if you really want to rave like a lunatic about it you can easily find somewhere that will let you. But I won’t tolerate it here, and if you post a comment advocating this reeking garbage heap of an idea, your comment will be deleted and your account will be history.
You know Charles, we probably don't and will not agree on a lot of things, but this is one of those points where we gladly show you both thumbs up. No seriously, consider this a round of applause from LGF Watch, and I say this not through gritted teeth, but with a sincere smile on my face.
So if any lizards are lurking around here, take note of this.
