Once again the usual suspects are at it. They never seem to stop. The best analogy I can think of is if, this were World War II, and there was a blogsphere, people like Pam Geller, Robert Spencer, etc. etc. ad nauseam would go after those of German decent. My grandfather Froehlich, who had a grandfather who came from Germany during the Civil War, would be their target. They would try to make his life a living hell, the way they do people tho day, who are Muslim. Never mind that Sebastian Froehlich came as a Hessian mercenary during the Civil War and was alleged to have been given his papers of citizenship directly from Lincoln. All that would matter was the fact that my ultra patriotic grandfather Froehlich would have the wrong genetics. They would do their best to destroy he, his siblings, my mother and probably my sister and I.
It’s an idiot thing.
It’s also a hate thing.
It is also a refusal to even admit that we live in a new melting pot, much like the one over a century ago, where immigrants were coming in from Ireland, German, and central Europe. They weren’t exactly welcomed with open arms. They were, for the most part, treated like dirt. BUT – they did have an advantage over their modern day counterparts. At leas they had the same coloring and racial profile as the original immigrants to these shores.
Today though, we’re dealing with a new group of immigrants who aren’t blond, pale skinned, with blue and green eyes. They don’t blend into the crowds on the streets the way those other immigrants did. They’re easy targets for racial hatreds that never seem to chagne.
Fact is, the far right is already lying about what is going on in the investigation. They truly are disgusting. If the situation weren’t so critical and so horrific, it would almost border on the comedic. We’re dealing with a group of highly unstable people who know how to manipulate good and fearful people, brainwashed by FOX, into believing the world is coming to an end, that we are being invaded by Sharia.
Fortunately, most of these professional haters are using their agenda to promote themselves into nice incomes, with nice book deals and nice TV appearances. They have turned hate into a lucrative career. When you add batsh*t crazy tendencies to their career paths, then there is a very real problem. They ruin lives.
It’s also an irrational thing.
And so, the usual suspects like Pam Geller, Robert Spencer, FOX News, Glenn Beck, Michael Savage, think that they are so important, and so impervious to the rules of rational discourse and behavior, that they can s imply go out and destroy. They can lie, and just get away with it.
“…There is a rumor taking off on the right, which has been embraced by the likes of Glenn Beck and Pamela Geller, that the Saudi student questioned over the Boston marathon attack is being deported. The rumor is, unsurprisingly, “one hundred percent false.”
But even though multiple news outlets, including the conservative Daily Caller, have debunked the story, the anti-Muslim group ACT! For America has decided to go ahead and run with it. The group sent out an email at 4:47 this afternoon repeating the rumor and warning that “something fishy is going on.”…”
You see, it’s all about the hate.
“...But thanks to their ability to do really basic internet detective work, they managed to figure out pretty quickly that the guy in the blue track jacket almost certainly isn’t a bomber. All they had to do was find his Facebook. I was able to do it pretty quickly: He’s a Moroccan-American kid, a local high-school soccer player and track runner (possibly he and his friend’s track outfits could have been a tipoff that they were actually interested in the race?) who works at Subway and likes How High and The Hunger Games. On Monday, he took a couple of geekily enthusiastic photos of himself at the marathon. These were the latest posts on his News Feed (since deleted; he’s also changed his name on Facebook):…”
So, now, just like Richard Jewell in Atlanta, we have a normal high school kid who is having his life destroyed by Big Bad Rupert, who doesn’t give a damn. Personally, The Pink Flamingo is among those who think the kids’ parents should file a lawsuit that is so big, it will make Rupert’s life a living hell. Unfortunately, when you’re not much different from the devil himself, I don’t think much is going to touch this man. It wasn’t into later in the evening on Thursday, after the Post had been shamed, and ruined these kids’ reputations did they retract the story.
Glenn Beck’s idiots just won’t let it go, either:
“...On Sean Hannity’s Fox News program Wednesday night, terror expert Steve Emerson cited sources saying Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national who was briefly named a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombings, is being deported on Tuesday.
Thursday morning, Glenn Beck revealed on radio that TheBlaze was informed by sources that the Saudi national’s visa had been revoked and he was, in fact, going to be deported on “security and related grounds.”
Among other things, sources told TheBlaze that the Saudi national had ties to a well-connected Saudi family and that his deportation was set to be framed as a “voluntary” departure to be with his family.
A file, called an “event,” was started on him three days ago.
While discussing the issue on radio, TheBlaze’s Chief Content Officer Joel Cheatwood revealed that the government has had second thoughts on deporting Ali Alharbi.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano refused to answer questions on the subject when confronted by Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) on Capitol Hill.
An ICE official refuted TheBlaze’s report, calling it “categorically false.”
A congressional source, however, says that the file on Alharbi was created, that he was “linked” in some way to the Boston bombings (although its unclear how), and that documents showing all this have been sent to Congress….”
It doesn’t matter if the injured Saudi witness is evil or not. The extreme right thinks the person should be deported, and are lying about it. We’re dealing with yet another student who just doesn’t have blond hair or blue eyes, nor fit the racial profile of the America the far right wants.
Now isn’t the time to explore the ongoing relationship between Glenn Beck and FOX Tabloid News. it’s still there with one bottom feeder, dining off another.
Let’s face it, it’s all about hating anyone who just might be a Muslim. You see, it’s an evil, godless religion, made up of pedophiles, killers, and Sharila. If you have the courage to stand up for a Muslim friend, on Twitter, the hate spewed at you is terrifying. The Pink Flamingo knows. I’ve been the receiving end, several times.
Do people ever get tired of hating?
