DIRK® Versus A Yahoo Porn Troll!

Totally busy. Totally exhausted. Three-day-old Monday Morning Coffee with a bunch of stuff about Clinton's meltdown just getting moldy. Sleepy, I am, but not so bad as to not have a moment to chat with a porn bot. This one was on Yahoo and actually had a name that made a bit of sense unlike the AIM pornbots. Check this out:

[03:24] wanagitogederewichu: hi... anyone tere?

[03:24] *** Auto-response sent to wanagitogederewichu: Even I, occasionally, sleep, so please leave a message.....

[03:24] wanagitogederewichu: oh your therr :) hi...

[03:24] DirkBelig: dirka dirka?

[03:24] wanagitogederewichu: a/s/l (age sex oocation)?

[03:25] DirkBelig: A means to keep count/I'm for it/Here

[03:25] wanagitogederewichu: im 27/f/USA. was lookin at your profile.. thought you might like to chat.
[03:25] wanagitogederewichu: soo what have you been up to dirkbelig?

[03:25] DirkBelig: About 6'3"

[03:25] wanagitogederewichu: cool. i was just hangin oout watching tv. i was getting kinda horny :) (*blushes)

[03:26] DirkBelig: Andy Griffith will do that to you. Matlock was banging the Golden Girls, you know.

[03:26] wanagitogederewichu: feel like a little cybber fun with me ? please please...

[03:27] DirkBelig: Since the accident and the shady government experiments, I'm almost totally cybernetic, not just a little.

[03:27] wanagitogederewichu: oh well your loss. why dont you open up my profile and see what you missed out on. theres a link there to my homepage where i hae some real nice pics to leave with.

[03:28] DirkBelig: Robot eyes. Not quite the same. Everything looks botoxed.

[03:29] wanagitogederewichu: bbot? whats that? some kinda insult or something?

[03:30] DirkBelig: Only in countries that refuse to observe Daylight Savings Time
I think I scared it off. As if I was a viable threat. With my luck, if I met a hot police officer online, I'd probably end up at some sleazy hot sheets motel and find that it's really some 14-year-old kid.

The Dems Experience A Shocked Parent Moment.

You've probably seen the PSA with the father confronting his teenage son about having pot paraphernalia. He demands to know where he learned to do such a thing and the browbeaten boy finally blurts, “From watching you guys!” The chastened father realizes that his “Do as I say, not as I do” ethos had come up short and seeing this behavior in others didn’t look so swift.

Now, the faux outrage that dedicated Bush-bashers Nancy Pelosi and Charles Rangel are showing in the wake of Hugo Chavez’s insulting of Dubya at the UN is as sincere as a shotgun wedding, but whether it’s from concern over voter backlash piling on their faltering momentum or a genuine offense over their President being dissed – quit laughing! – it raises the question as to where Chavez got such ideas that Dubya was “Diablo”.

New blogroll addition The Anchoress impresses mightily on "Chavez clearly listened to Dems and Air America" as she takes them to task:

But if Bush is being disrespected, then the Democrats need to look to themselves and their actions and understand how complicit they have been in encouraging it. Dems like Charlie Rangel, who called President Bush “Bull Connor,” knowing full well how wrong, inaccurate, unfair and inflammatory that was, or like the idiots who called Bush “a genocidal racist” after Hurricane Katrina, or like the party (and the press) who spent years telling America about Saddam’s Weapons of Mass Destruction only to later pretend they never said such things, and to pretend further that somehow Bush’s believing the same things they believed…made him a liar.

The Democrats alleged something that disingenuous - that what they believed was true was suddenly not only false but one man’s lie - and the press let them do it.

The press repeated it, ad nauseum, and the press and the Dems promoted films with that message, and books, until that damnable, transparent and nonsensical lie was repeated enough…because everyone knows that if you tell a big lie enough, it becomes “the truth.”
Be sure to read the link within the quote, too, because it's an excellent primer on all the things Team Clinton said that suddenly became "Bush's lies" when WMDs weren't found.

Friday Fiver Triple-Header!!!

Yeesh, I've fallen behind! How'd I miss three in a row? I'm busy, but come on now! Let's catch 'em up!!!

1. When is the last time you dressed inappropriately for a situation?

Can't recall the latest, but I once wore an Ozzy "Diary of a Madman" t-shirt to Mass on a Sunday.

Are we talking MySpace "friends" or real friends?

3. Are you running on time today?

No, but that's usual.

4. Do you use bleach on your laundry?


5. What are your thoughts on guns?

They're inanimate objects, but fascist totalitarians believe they are magical items that make people turn evil and that's why we should be disarmed - to prevent the bad magic from hurting people.

Not much, but shows are starting up, so more than over the summer.

2. What type of show is your favorite?

Hey! It Was Our Birthday!!!

I've been so freaking busy, I totally missed the 2nd Anniversary (traditional gift: cotton) of DIRKWORLD®!!! September 17, 2004 was the date of the first post here and 777 posts later, there is still so much to talk about and do.

Thank you for your continued patronage. Stay tuned...

Head-in-the-Sand Liberals

Sam Harris isn't that guy from from "Star Search" a zillion years ago, but a deep blue liberal who wrote a book critical of religion and who has a general fear of evangenicals. In a rare example of intellectual honesty - for which he is being excoriated by the fascist Left - he has realized that liberals are clueless and misguided as to the threats arrayed against us.

His concern is partially based on the fact that given a choice between American and French candidates, the Americans tend to do better amongst the non-suicidal voters at the polls - but he's also rightfully concerned about what the jihad would mean to everyone's general health and welfare.

[M]y correspondence with liberals has convinced me that liberalism has grown dangerously out of touch with the realities of our world — specifically with what devout Muslims actually believe about the West, about paradise and about the ultimate ascendance of their faith.

On questions of national security, I am now as wary of my fellow liberals as I am of the religious demagogues on the Christian right.

This may seem like frank acquiescence to the charge that "liberals are soft on terrorism." It is, and they are.

A cult of death is forming in the Muslim world — for reasons that are perfectly explicable in terms of the Islamic doctrines of martyrdom and jihad. The truth is that we are not fighting a "war on terror." We are fighting a pestilential theology and a longing for paradise.

This is not to say that we are at war with all Muslims. But we are absolutely at war with those who believe that death in defense of the faith is the highest possible good, that cartoonists should be killed for caricaturing the prophet and that any Muslim who loses his faith should be butchered for apostasy.

Unfortunately, such religious extremism is not as fringe a phenomenon as we might hope. Numerous studies have found that the most radicalized Muslims tend to have better-than-average educations and economic opportunities.

Given the degree to which religious ideas are still sheltered from criticism in every society, it is actually possible for a person to have the economic and intellectual resources to build a nuclear bomb — and to believe that he will get 72 virgins in paradise. And yet, despite abundant evidence to the contrary, liberals continue to imagine that Muslim terrorism springs from economic despair, lack of education and American militarism.

At its most extreme, liberal denial has found expression in a growing subculture of conspiracy theorists who believe that the atrocities of 9/11 were orchestrated by our own government. A nationwide poll conducted by the Scripps Survey Research Center at Ohio University found that more than a third of Americans suspect that the federal government "assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East;" 16% believe that the twin towers collapsed not because fully-fueled passenger jets smashed into them but because agents of the Bush administration had secretly rigged them to explode.

Such an astonishing eruption of masochistic unreason could well mark the decline of liberalism, if not the decline of Western civilization. There are books, films and conferences organized around this phantasmagoria, and they offer an unusually clear view of the debilitating dogma that lurks at the heart of liberalism: Western power is utterly malevolent, while the powerless people of the Earth can be counted on to embrace reason and tolerance, if only given sufficient economic opportunities.

I don't know how many more engineers and architects need to blow themselves up, fly planes into buildings or saw the heads off of journalists before this fantasy will dissipate.
The truth is that there is every reason to believe that a terrifying number of the world's Muslims now view all political and moral questions in terms of their affiliation with Islam. This leads them to rally to the cause of other Muslims no matter how sociopathic their behavior. This benighted religious solidarity may be the greatest problem facing civilization and yet it is regularly misconstrued, ignored or obfuscated by liberals.

Given the mendacity and shocking incompetence of the Bush administration — especially its mishandling of the war in Iraq — liberals can find much to lament in the conservative approach to fighting the war on terror. Unfortunately, liberals hate the current administration with such fury that they regularly fail to acknowledge just how dangerous and depraved our enemies in the Muslim world are.

In their analyses of U.S. and Israeli foreign policy, liberals can be relied on to overlook the most basic moral distinctions. For instance, they ignore the fact that Muslims intentionally murder noncombatants, while we and the Israelis (as a rule) seek to avoid doing so. Muslims routinely use human shields, and this accounts for much of the collateral damage we and the Israelis cause; the political discourse throughout much of the Muslim world, especially with respect to Jews, is explicitly and unabashedly genocidal.

Given these distinctions, there is no question that the Israelis now hold the moral high ground in their conflict with Hamas and Hezbollah. And yet liberals in the United States and Europe often speak as though the truth were otherwise.

We are entering an age of unchecked nuclear proliferation and, it seems likely, nuclear terrorism. There is, therefore, no future in which aspiring martyrs will make good neighbors for us. Unless liberals realize that there are tens of millions of people in the Muslim world who are far scarier than Dick Cheney, they will be unable to protect civilization from its genuine enemies.

While liberals should be the ones pointing the way beyond this Iron Age madness, they are rendering themselves increasingly irrelevant. Being generally reasonable and tolerant of diversity [HA!!!! - DB], liberals should be especially sensitive to the dangers of religious literalism. But they aren't.

The same failure of liberalism is evident in Western Europe, where the dogma of multiculturalism has left a secular Europe very slow to address the looming problem of religious extremism among its immigrants. The people who speak most sensibly about the threat that Islam poses to Europe are actually fascists. [Huh? Oh, yeah, conservatives are fascists to the Left. - DB]

To say that this does not bode well for liberalism is an understatement: It does not bode well for the future of civilization.
Reality-based people like me have been saying this for ages, but will the Left listen to the inconvenient truths of Islamofascism if it comes from one of "their" guys?

I'm not holding my breath here.

The Appeasement Press

Iran's Hitler-wannabe President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke at the UN - that debate club for tyrants and dictators - yesterday and Hugh Hewitt has noticed that the Treason Media is downplaying the really scary stuff in his speech and offers some reasons why:

When the fanatical president of a strong and ambitious for nuclear weapons country appears at the United Nations, that's news. When that president has repeatedly threatened Israel with destruction, denied the Holocaust's existence, and sent long rambling letters to the leaders of the U.S., France, and Germany, people will want to know what he says and what it means.

When he delievers a radical address that --in soft tones, yes, but urgent ones-- declares the U.N. to be illegitimate, the war against Israel by Hezbollah to be a creation of the U.S., goes out of his way to alert Christians that Jesus was just a prophet, and then closes with an apocalypse-welcoming appeal to God, that's not just news, it is very crucial news, news that underscores many important facts for the West and the U.S., chief among them that "diplomacy" leading to a "better deal" isn't on this radical's mind. He wants his nukes. He wants the apocalypse.

And the appeasement press does not convey this; doesn't even bother to report the closing appeal to the Almighty.

Because I played the speech live on my radio show, and saw and heard the reaction in the e-mails and the calls, I and my audience know what he was saying, and I know that it was big news of intense interest to Americans with any eye on the world.

And it is underplayed at best and ignored at worst.

Why such negligence by the appeasement press? A lot of reasons.

Because the appeasement press favors the party of appeasement, and stories that depart from the agenda journalism that wholly favors the Democratic Party platform of retreat from Iraq and the Democratic Party ideology that believes all evil in the world is either the fault of the U.S. or can be bargained away will not get much ink, if any.

Because it is lazy and incurious about such things as long speeches that have to be listened to in translation, and even when listened to, not to the end, and even when listened to to the end, not comprehended because most of the appeasement press don't read widely or deeply.

Because the appeasement press is bigoted and at best agmostic, and don't believe the religious beliefs of an odd-looking fellow from a mullah-run state can pose any sort of real threat to the West. Israel, maybe, but hey, they've got it coming to them, right? If the Jews had given the Palestinians their land back a couple of decades ago, we'd all be past this, right?

My next post will be about one diehard socialist liberal who is able to peer through his dogmatic views enough to see that his brethren are sadly mistaken about who the enemy is.

Wednesday Morning Coffee (No kidding!)

Whoa! Can this really be happening? Looks like it is! It's a Morning Coffee!!! HIT IT!!!!

POPE BENNY 16 UNDER FIRE: Isn't it ironic that the Religion of Peace is reacting to the accurate mention by the Pope that some people have noticed that Islam has a history of violence by rioting, firebombing churches, making death threats and the murder of a nun in Somalia? The Pope has made "Sorry if you were too stupid to understand what I was saying" non-apology apologies, but what he really needs to do is issue a call to arms against this barbaric, medieval Religion of Death. Will the dewy-eyed pacifism and turn-the-other-cheeck dogmas of Christianity lead to its being run thru by the sword of Islam. Sorry, Benny, ain't gonna play that. Don't be the shepherd who led his flock to slaughter.

MEXICAN INVADERS CAN STAY, DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER GOES: From the "Misplaced Priorities" file is this item from The Jawa Report:

A few years ago, he captured a rich American serial rapist that hid away in Mexico. That is a good thing. However, bounty hunting is illegal in Mexico (watch out Yule Brenner). So, The Dog ended up in jail for his effort to bring an American a-hole to justice. He posted bail and promptly came home.

Now the Mexican authorities want him back to face charges for his illegal actions. WTF? He did nothing to their citizens and had no intention of ever going back. Ever. But a US Federal judge signed the warrant for his arrest and they are in the process of beginning the extradition process to send him to Mexico.

Again. WTF?

How about a federal judge spend time working on extraditing illegal aliens from the US back to Mexico. The US judge argues that he is just enforcing treay obligations. So, we have a treaty that sends American good guys who capture American bad guys to face prison time in Mexican prisons, but no agreement for Mexico to help gather their wayward citizens illegally in this country.

I could go on and on, but, come on, WTF?!?
WTF, indeed.

ROSIE O'DONNELL IS A STUPID COW: Yeah, I know that is as obvious as "Ellen DeGeneres gets more hot blonde girls than Bill Maher", but what else can be said about her obtuse tone-deaf comments about how "radical Christians are as great a threat as radical Muslims"? Hey, Rosie! As unhappy as you may be about not having the support for gay marriage - the same issue that drove Andrew Sullivan insane - just how dumb do you have to be to not know that under sharia law, not only would her fat ass be hidden under a tent, but she wouldn't be allowed to mouth off as a career and as a lesbian, SHE'D...BE...DEAD?!?!? Idiot!!!

Remember when the media lauded her as the "Queen of Nice"? What a crock that was as she attacked Tom Selleck over guns, etc. Which famous lesbian comic will be hosting the Oscars next year. (Hint: Not Dumb Cow Girl.) Ellen is very popular because she comes off as nice and non-militant in a way that the bitter, rage-filled (normal emotional state of the Left) Rosie can no longer pretend to be. She's not downplaying her sexuality - she's just not making it her only distiguishing trait. I'm waiting for Elizabeth Hasselback to finally haul off and coldcock Rosie one of these days.

INTARWEB HYPE RESULTS INCONSISTENCIES: After nearly a year of fervent buzz, "Snakes on a Plane" finally came out and crashed at the box office, despite being a really fun popcorn movie. Pundits are proclaiming this as proof that Web buzz means nothing in the end. OTOH, aren't pundits claiming that Kos puppet Ned Lamont is proof that the Web is able to swing politics? Hmmmm.

HOT MUSLIM BABES!: Ever wonder what was under those bhurqas?

No wonder the repressed Islamofascists want to cover women up! They're self-hating pussies who are hung like infants and it's better to hide the babes than get aroused and be laughed at by said babes.

Of course, our wonderful ally (*cough*) in the War Against Islamofascism, Pakistan, probably would like to drag an American resident back to her native Pakistan to kill her for winning a Chinese bikini contest.

Wonder what Rosie would say about this if it was Christians looking to punish these women? (Not really. I know what she'd say vs. what she'd say about this.)

WELCOME THE JAWA REPORT AND THE ANCHORESS TO DIRKWORLD: Based on what I've seen and linked today, I'm adding The Jawa Report to my blog roll at right. Good stuff. I've also been meaning to post a bunch of links from The Anchoress because she's very good on religious issues. Check them out, won't you?

BUY THIS T-SHIRT!: In response to an insipid Arabic t-shirt worn by the Treason Media-protected Nazi Cindy Sheehan, Michelle Malkin is selling these t-shirts:

I want to get one and wear it in front of the local Jihad Coordination Center here in Dearbornistan. Proceeds are going to some good cause, but even if they weren't, it's a good way to announce to the Islamo- (and Democrat) fascists that you're not gonna go out like a punk bitch.

DIRK'S DISH & VIDEO DU JOUR: The Sounds are a Swedish band whose debut, "Living In America", was a great knockoff of the Eighties sound - if Kim Wilde had done an album between her first and "Select", it would've sounded like this. Their second album wasn't as catchy, despite having a great cover...

...on which neither girl is singer Maja Ivarsson.

The Sounds haven't broken thru here, but Maja got some, ahem, exposure in the video for the theme to "Snakes on a Plane". The group, Cobra Academy, is some sort of emo band supergroup and since I'm not a crying teenaged pussy, I have no idea who any of these guys are. Regardless, the tune is actually really cool, but the real attraction of the video is Maja's hoochie girl moves and a shirt that definitely wouldn't pass Taliban muster. I wonder how many takes they couldn't use because her goodies were overexposed?

Anyhoo, here's the video and Maja's peek-a-boobs. Enjoy!

Why Linux Fanboys Suck.

I've mentioned before how Apple aficionados are glazed-eye cultists who would take pictures of their unwrapping a box of Steve Jobs poo and Linux fanboys are the suicide bombers of geekdom as they can't control their reflexive need to be total asstacklers on teh Intarwebs, crapping on any thread, article or site that doesn't bash Micro$oft to their satisfaction. F*cking jerks.

The latest example can be found in the very first comment after the lightweight piece at ZDNet, "10 essential tweaks for Windows Vista RC1". Here's what a too-typical Linux jerk had to say:

Number 11

Format hard drive and get off the Windows treadmill.

Leave Redmond behind. You will have more money, you will get more work done because you're not constantly fighting the exploit-of-the-day or endlessly applying the patch-of-the-moment (which requires a restart), and your PC will be fun again like it used to be.
It's this snotty, arrogant crap that keeps people from trying Linux in the first place - a subject I covered in "Regarding: Linux Snobs" which had a link to a piece calling out these shmucks on their counterproductive belligerence. A snip from that:
As I spoke to newbies, one Windows user who wanted to learn about Linux shared the encouraging and constructive note (not) he received from one of the project members. The responding note read: "Hi jackass, RTFM and stop wasting our time trying to help you children learn."

Lovely little encouragement. This particular Windows user was a newbie to Linux but had been in the I.T. industry for years. His question, regarding "how do I start process daemons like a web server" was reasonable, not childish. His reaction to the Linux "guru" was also reasonable. He basically said that he doesn't have time to deal with people so fanatic and terse they reject questions on message boards created to answer questions.
It's only a matter of time before the Linux jihadists adopt the Islamofascists "Convert or DIE!!!!" strategery for forcing their geek religious beliefs upon the rest of us. Llamas!!!

Pope Benny 16 vs. The Religion of Peace

It's been fascinating to see the Treason Media cheerfully fomenting death and destruction by misreporting the speech of Pope Benny 16 that has got the Religion of Peace firebombing churches and threatening to kill all the Christians in Iraq and destroy the Vatican. While they explain that the context was clear that the Pope was quoting a 14th Century Emperor, the nuance-free Muslim Street has been going berserk as if Benny said that Mohammad's mama wore combat boots.

Michelle Malkin has good wrapups on her The Religion of Peace Firebombs & Fatwas and Pope Rage on the Internet; church bombings in Gaza posts, so check them out.

The media's hatred for Christianity and hunger for spectacle to broadcast - nothing like riots, bombings and firebombs to make for good TV, eh? - is going to make them make damn sure that the Muslims are riled up and the world is terrified of offending the throat-cutting jihadis. Since the Treason Media shares the fascist power lust of the Islamist killers, look for things to get much worse.

Dead Christians; a terrified West; fascism ascendent; exciting images = Treason Media's Dream Quadruple Play!!!

Hit Man 0, Potential Victim 1

From the Stanger Than Fiction Dept. comes the story of the woman who killed the hitman sent to whack her with her bare hands!

When Susan Kuhnhausen returned home from work one day earlier this month, she encountered an intruder wielding a claw hammer. After a struggle, the 51-year-old nurse fended off her attacker by strangling him with her bare hands.

Neighbors praised the woman for her bravery, and investigators said they believed the dead man -- Edward Dalton Haffey -- was burglarizing Kuhnhausen's home.

But after an investigation, police now say the intruder Kuhnhausen strangled was apparently a hit man hired by her estranged husband -- Michael James Kuhnhausen Sr. -- to kill her.
As the item on the Corner said, good help is hard to find!

Wanted: White Criminals Only

What kind of racist hate-monger would dare point out such a thing?!? This Douglas MacKinnon has.

Apparently, in the world of creative entertainment, not only can white men not jump, but we represent most, if not all, of the criminal element.

In the make believe land of movies, television, and commercials, if there is a heinous crime to be committed, 99.9% of the time, it’s now going to be done by a white guy. In fact, it has to be done by a white guy.

Political correctness and the fear of offending, or worse yet, getting sued or picketed, is such, that you will no longer see blacks, Hispanics, most minorities, or even women for that matter, commit a fictional crime. No. Hollywood and the ad agencies have decided that criminal activity on film is now the sole domain of the “too successful for his own good” white male.

Think I’m exaggerating? Watch any commercial on television for any one of the home alarm companies. One hundred percent of the time, it’s always a white guy breaking into the home. In fact, there is one spot now running, where we see an upper-middle class African-American family in a panic as a burglar is trying to break into their home. And just who is this burglar? Why none other than that well known and ubiquitous, evil white male.

Don’t like that example. Okay. Instead, watch any of the commercials for any of the credit card companies that try to sell you a card to replace traveler checks. As the commercial plays out, you see that some low-life, former Enron-like executive white male, has, once again, ruined the vacation of mom, dad, muffy and skip as they tried desperately to enjoy Paris before it too, was torched by insurgents in training.

Still not convinced. Fine. Watch any sitcom or one hour drama on television. Almost without exception, every fictional crime being committed in all of these shows is being done by a white male. “Case closed, Monk. Sanitize your hands and let’s lock up the Caucasian.”

Think the big screen is different. Wrong. Most crimes that take place on the silver screen are committed by white men. Of course, just for a laugh, Hollywood will, on occasion, out due itself as it stretches the bounds of political correctness, by throwing a completely impossible scene of reverse stereotyping at the film fan.

Case in point, the movie “Falling Down” where the defense contractor, played by famous white guy Michael Douglas, completely snaps and starts shooting minorities. My favorite part of the movie is where he goes into a burger joint that is supposed to be in South Central L.A. and is served by none other than Dee Dee Pfeiffer. A whiter than white Valley girl working in a burger joint in South Central.

My wife, who is from South America, once asked, “Don’t Hispanics ever commit any crimes in your TV shows?” My answer was, “Rarely. They will commit marginally more crimes on TV than blacks, but only because Hollywood is more worried about Jesse Jackson coming after them than Edward James Olmos.”

Obviously, for far too many years, minority and African-American actors were marginalized, stereotyped, and blatantly insulted in film, on television, and even in commercials. I would submit that you still have some of that behavior happening today. Both by elements of mainstream entertainment, and ironically, and quite tragically, in a number of Hip Hop and Gangsta rap videos which purposely denigrate and disrespect black women, while fostering the worst possible stereotypes of black men.

But is the solution to those past and current sins, to create a fairytale entertainment world in which only white men can be portrayed as criminals. While amusing in its absurdity, it also draws attention the fact that as a nation, we are still not as comfortable or accepting of diversity as some would pretend.
Someine take this fool away and reeducate him with some diversity and tolerance values, STAT!!!!

I've noticed (and probably commented on it) before that news reports are loathe to announce that criminal suspects are black lest they get a call from Al or Jesse. Watch the news and see how often they'll tell you every detail about a suspect EXCEPT his skin color. There was a woman robbing backs a while back and the description was so vague as to be useless, starting with no mention of what color the perp was? How pathetic is it that we can't mention that certain groups - whites, Asians, Indians, albinos - aren't what they're looking for?

It's also politically incorrect to mention Middle Eastern/Muslim appearance, too.
"A 16-year-old girl was tailed by a car full of men before being dragged inside and assaulted in Sydney's west last night, police say ... .

"The three men involved in the attack were described to police as having dark 'mullet-style' hair cuts."

Three men with "mullet-style" hair, huh? Not much to go on there. Bit of a head scratcher. But, as it turned out, the indefatigable Sydney Morning Herald typist had faithfully copied out every salient detail of the police report except one. Here's the statement the coppers themselves issued:

"Police are seeking three men described as being of Middle Eastern/Mediterranean appearance, with dark 'mullet-style' hair cuts."

That additional detail narrows it down a bit, wouldn't you say? The only reason I know that is because the Aussie Internet maestro Tim Blair grew curious about the epidemic of incidents committed by men of no known appearance and decided to look into it.
Civilizations die of suicide, not murder. Being afraid to speak plain Truths like the race of a suspect - regardless of what color they are - are a sign that those more dedicated to their principals, say, Islamofascists, will triumph in the battle for survivial we're currently embroiled in.

When we're unwilling to attack a gathering of Taliban leaders because the rules of engagement prohibit bombing cemetaries...

...the it's obvious that we're not serious about our own survival as much as keeping up appearances. The Islamofascists think we're weak. They're right. And unless we get over this need for acceptance from those who seek to kill us, we're all dead.

Readers Write....

I have been so busy that I've been unable to get a fraction of the posts up that events demand, but them's the breaks when you're gainfully employed and not some fascist malcontent like Kos who has nothing but time to dedicate to the destruction of America and the election of fascist Democrats to assist in these goals.

On my sole 9/11 post, about Dogpile, I received this query in the comments:

That's it, Dirk? I expected more commentary on your site than what Dogpile put up on 9/11. No comments on the Path to 9/11 fiasco or the speech or anything? You must be super busy
Since hardly anyone reads the comments, I suspect, here's what I replied with for the general edification of everyone.


Yes, I am. But since you took a moment to stop by, here are a few quick hits about recent events:

* Dubya's 9/11 Speech: Since he didn't announce that he was nuking Damascus or Terahn nor sealing the borders from infiltration and invasion, I thought it was more blah-blah-woof-woof. Is it 2009 yet?

* The Path to 9/11: Its most valuable service was to reveal how terrified Democrats are of the Truth of their utter lack of seriousness about defense be revealed. Dubya didn't threaten to shut down any studios for Michael Moore's fictions, yet ABC risked losing their license for telling it like it was about Clinton AND Dubya? Never again can they speak of free speech without their noses growing.

As for the show, it was good but there were too many needlessly fictionalized scenes, like the main "Sandy Berger hangs up" one. The Truth is damning enought without making up stuff. Just the facts, ma'am. 7/10.

* Rove/Cheney/Libby Never Leaked Valerie Plame's Name: Well....DUH!!!! I've always said that Joe Wilson was always a liar and after three years and one bogus unrelated indictment, even the WaPo fesses up what it knew all along.

The disgrace of the Treason Media is how they (along with Armitage and Powell) sat silently while innocent men were forced to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on lawyers to defend against nothing; aware the whole time that they knew the truth but refused to print it because it didn't get their "Kill Bush" agenda.

* New iPods: Whoa! 80GB video iPod for $349?!? I paid $389 for my 4G monochrome 40GB less than two years ago. Neato.

Back to the grindstone.

America the Treacherous

On 9/11, one of my MySpace "friends" - whose only connection to me other than his band plays the bar I hang at and he went to the same high school, 12 years after me - sent out a bulletin with "Loose Change", the bogus 9/11 conspiracy film that has gained much currency (no pun) with the terminally stupid and insane as PROOF, MAN, of Team Dubya's staging of the event. He wrote:

Even if you're not a conspiracy nut like myself and a few of my friends I believe that every American should watch this documentary and make his or her own decisions about the events upon and leading up to that day.
What f*cking codswallop!!! I wrote him back:
I double-dog dare ya to forward this link to your list as a companion piece to your friends with the same enthusiasm as you encourage them to waste their time watching the totally fraudulent "Loose Change" film.

* There is no 9/11 conspiracy you morons.

Short version: We're supposed to believe that the government conspired to pull off this massive scheme without a single leak after five years, yet after supposedly killing 3,000 people, they've allowed these assholes to remain alive to blow their secret?!? Think about THAT!

* 9-11 Loose Change Second Edition Viewer Guide

Short version: The author states, "I'll tell you now that in this hour and twenty-minute video I counted 81 errors of fact (statements like "1+1 = 3"). In addition, I counted 345 instances of conjecture not supported by evidence, logical fallacies, uses of images that do not support the conclusions being drawn, and other flubs. And that's only counting errors of commission. The errors of omission are more serious. (Note: I have turned up more errors while doing this update, but I find it too depressing to count them.)

The Truth is not something that can be decided by watching some charlatans tinfoil hat lunacy and agreeing or not. The Truth is what it is - fire burns, water is wet, gravity pulls down, Angelina Jolie is the hottest woman in the Universe (j/k), etc. - and if some idiots want to make a movie that says that fire is cool, water is dry, a dropped brick will float away and Anna Nicole Smith is capable of spelling her own name, that's fine and dandy, but IT DOESN'T MAKE IT SO!!!!

Dude, if you want to be crazy and believe every lie someone wants to tell you, suit yourself; but please don't encourage others to waste their time following you into the darkness of lies and ignorance. I notice you haven't encouraged anyone to watch "The Path to 9/11" - why not? Shouldn't that be part of the informational diet for people to ponder and decide about or is that inadmissable because it doesn't fit your conspiracy theories?

Do you have a theory about Tim McVeigh and the OKC bombing or is the official "lone bomber" story good enough for you?

Needless to say, the pussy didn't send it out and didn't write back. I'd slapped him for sending a video of George Galloway around lying about Iraq and he didn't do anything with that either. He's a useful idiot, unassailed by facts, reality or Truth and he likes it that way. Llama.

I'm not the only one who's noticed, as Jonah Goldberg's column about "The seditious dementia of conspiracy theories" discusses much of this phenomenom:
There is a virulent form of unpatriotism festering in America today. Like an algae bloom that deprives life of oxygen, it starves democracy of the air of reason. It now thrives on what we call the far Left, but like a dead zone off the coast, it moves with the tides.

I am referring to the seditious dementia of conspiracy theories, the death of faith not in some mere administration or Congress but in America itself.

Haven’t you heard? The U.S. government blew up the World Trade Center. Oh, sorry, that’s not right. The planes did knock down those buildings, but the White House was in on it. Oh, no, sorry again, that’s not what happened. It was the Jews. They razed it without leaving any fingerprints — save for the 4,000 Zionist co-conspirators who were tipped off in advance — in order to frame the peace-loving Muslims of al Qaeda. (Those crafty Hebrews are always coming up with clever ways to make Islamic fanatics look bad, like getting blown up.) Bin Laden’s admission that he did it? Well, of course. He’s in on it.

Presumably, Bush’s demolition experts applied the same expertise to the levees in New Orleans. That’s another theory in wide circulation today thanks in no small part to Spike Lee, who gave it a fair airing in an HBO documentary.

The metaphysical, ontological stupidity of all this defies rational rebuttal. It would be like proving I didn’t have unicorn for dinner in late December of 1987.


The masons of dementia build upon a bedrock of one absolute truth: Bad things happen, and someone must be responsible. Upon this bedrock they pile convenient and selective facts like bricks. Contradictory facts are clever lies. When Popular Mechanics debunked 9/11 hokum, the immediate response from conspiratorialists was “cover-up!” and “CIA front!” because in this perverted faith, denying the ultimate truth must be proof of a lie.

This rough beast slouches toward sedition because it assumes not that our leaders are knaves or even mere criminals, but that they are murderous Supermen with no loyalty to nation, decency or law. Our Constitution is a fraud, a charade for the rubes some of us naively call citizens. If you disagree, you’re either fool or “in on it.” In his 1964 essay, “The Paranoid Style in American Politics,” Richard Hofstadter demonstrated that this fever of the mind is as old as America itself and its outbreaks flare up across the ideological landscape. What is so sad and frightening is that this diseased thinking is reaching epidemic proportions. More than a third of Americans believe the U.S. government was likely to have been involved in 9/11.

In the past, when these outbreaks occurred on the political right, liberal hand-wringers fretted about incipient fascism and rising McCarthyism. Today, the best we get from them is a bemused and sterile chuckle.
It's a weak end to the column, but the bulk is a sound recitation of facts. The BDS-consumed Left will not begin to hush up until they reclaim power. They're pitiful children and like most spoiled brats, they don't think about the consequences of their actions. The ends justify the means and if thousands of innocents and soldiers have to die in order to damage their enemies political viability, then so be it. The Left's Divine Right to rule over us is all that matters to them. Never forget that.

For 9/11, Dogpile > Google

The Corner points out that Google - commercial collaborators with Chinese tyrants - don't have anything up for 9/11 while Dogpile has this:

It's amazing that the fear of alienating Islamofascists and liberal fascists (read: Democrats) trumps showing solidarity with the country that allowed the Google guys to become billionaires. I wonder if they think they can buy their way out of their throats being cut for being infidels?
