Osmosis Jones Backs Down

Fucking unbelievable.

The last thing we need is self-appointed white blood cells to go attacking entities they view as harmful. I'm referring to this decade's answer to Osmosis Jones, or the Rev. Terry Jones, the asshat who planned to burn Qurans on September 11th. Jones changed his mind after intense pressure came to bear on him both domestically and internationally.

What makes his surrender especially stomach-churning is his insistence on portraying it as a victory and claiming that he'd backed down only after a satisfactory compromise had been reached with the Powers That Be.

We'd be able to laugh this off were it not for the fact that Imam Muhammad Musri of Florida was standing next to him as if he and Jones were friendly colleagues. Furthermore, Musri fell in line with Harry Reid and every right wing rectum who ever opposed the Cordoba Center by agreeing that the cultural center shouldn't even be within two blocks of Ground Zero, by saying, "I told the pastor that I personally believe the mosque should not be there, and I will do everything in my power to make sure it is moved."

He did contradict Jones' lie, however, and said that no deal had been reached with the Cordoba Center Initiative by adding, "But there is not any offer from there (New York) that it will be moved. All we have agreed to is a meeting, and I think we would all like to see a peaceful resolution."

The "news" also came as a surprise to Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the real driving force behind the center.

The radical right wing lost again and they're trying to portray it as, well, "mission accomplished." And a representative of the very same people who've been demonized by Jones was standing next to him in solidarity. Gag me with a falafel stick and call me Bill O'Reilly's squeeze.

Note, also, that as with Musri, the AP, as usual, got the story wrong and kept insisting the Cordoba Cultural Center was a "mosque".

Did you read the story in Der Spiegel about how this fuckwit had been a pastor in Germany for quite a while, until last year, when he was so wack that his congregation kicked him out? And so did Germany? In all the hype I've heard about this idiot, the Lamestream Meeja in America hasn't said anything about this.

Where ever he is planning to pile up and incinerate Qurans, someone should organize a counter burning of Bibles in the field across the street. I am sure he'd love that.

Interesting...god fobid anyone would chastise the muslim's for stonings,beheading's and thier treatment of women but if this fool wants to burn a Quran the world stops spinning for the libs.

Why in hell are we supposed to be so damn condescending to all things muslim? Where's the Delta I used to know?

If a Muslim wants to stone or behead someone in Gainesville, Fla., this lib will roundly condemn it! In fact, I'd travel to Gainesville to stop the bastard from doing it, even if I had to physically attack him. Because I'm a liberal who hates that shit! And all the other liberals I know hate it when Islamic religious extremists behead people and stone women. Even the Islamic religious extremists in Saudi Arabia, who we send billions of American dollars to every fucking day.

But you know what, Rusty? THERE AREN'T ANY ISLAMIC RADICALS DOING PROVOCATIVE SHIT LIKE BEHEADINGS AND STONINGS IN THE U.S. There's only one publicity-seeking freak in Florida who's stirring the shit and smearing it all over the face that America presents to the rest of the world. So we're pissing and moaning about him.

When I was in college and taking a public speaking/debate class, the professor taught us about the 7 Logical Fallacies we should avoid in debates, because an intelligent opponent would spot our fallacies and use them to demolish our argument. One of the logical fallacies was "False Equivalence." You can't say "Something else is wrong, so therefore, what I say is right." Sometimes BOTH things are wrong. Beheading people is wrong, so is burning Korans. So are you, Rusty. Wrong, that is.

One last thing -- why are right-wingers such poor spellers? Learn how to use apostrophes, Rusty. Maybe misspelling "thier" is a typo caused by fast fingers, but FARK! I see more poor use of the English language from conservofucks than I do from liberals. Not that all lefties are perfect, overall they compose written communications better than righties than liberals. Which is an indicator of the overall stupidity of reich-wing thinking. That means yours, Rusty.

Typical lib crybaby....attack the messenger.Ohhhhh noooooooo Mr.Bill,let them build the "community center,"thats free speech.But,dammit they cannot burn a sir...that may upset the people who want to kill us.

Yep sparky,maybe my spellings bad,maybe my grammar is bad but I'm not the one begging for money nor am I the one crying because Ingrid the cow stuck it up my ass and broke it off.

Money talks and bullshit walks and I believe you're the one who's been doing all the walking JP.

Way to stay classy and on topic, too. God only knows what keeps you from tickling your wrists with a straight edge razor day after day. I'm guessing massive amounts of grain alcohol and maybe some sterno.

You know, when a wrong-winger like Russy writes, I can just hear the petulant 7-year-old whiny voice in his words. To make it clear, little boy, JP didn't write that criticism -- which you didn't address, just cried about. One of his readers did. JP probably detests you more than I do, because I don't give two shits about losers such as you, so if he wanted to rip you a new one, he'd do it under his own ID.

I get a kick out of how regressive idiots defend their inability to write correctly. It used to be that ignorant people would feel a sense of shame over their lack of learning. Now it's a badge of honor. "I'm a dumbass, which means I'm a Real American!" Hey Rusty, have you ever scorned ghetto-talking black morons for talking Ebonics? Then why are you proud of your Teabonics?
