If the consequence of such thinking weren’t so devastating, it would be comical. Fundamentalists ranging from the Fundamentalist Muslim, Fundamentalist Jew, Fundamentalist Christian, Fundamentalist Anti-Religionist, Fundamentalist Anti-Crayonist, and Fundamentalist Anti-Humorist make me cry.
Here are some choice quotes from Ne*cons on a cruise: What cons*rvatives say when they think we aren’t listening:
‘”The Muslims are breeding. Soon, they’ll have the whole of Europe.”‘ (I appear to be shirking my duties as “Muslim breeder”. I should really get on that.)
‘”I went to Paris, and it was so lovely. […] But then you think – it’s surrounded by Muslims.”‘
‘A Filipino waiter offers him a top-up of his wine, and he mock-whispers to me, “They all look the same! Can you tell them apart?”‘
‘”The coverage of this [Iraq] war is unbelievable. Even Fox News is unbelievable. You’d think we’re the only ones dying. Enemy casualties aren’t covered. We’re doing an excellent job killing them.”‘
‘”…nobody was tortured in Abu Ghraib or Guantanamo.”‘
‘…black people “tend to revert to savagery”, and should be given the vote only “when they stop eating each other”‘
‘”… A white man doesn’t have a chance in this country.”‘
‘”The Mexicans are getting these benefits, the coloureds or niggers, whatever they are saying, are getting these benefits, and I as a white man am losing my country.”‘
‘Katrina showed […] “the dysfunctionality that is evident in many black neighbourhoods”
‘”Pinochet is a hero. He saved Chile.”‘
Among the brainiacs there were Bernard L*wis and Mark Ste*n.
…as heart-warming as Jesus C@mp.
