Violence for me, but not for thee.


Blogging Tory Raphaeldrian Alexandnair is terribly, terribly concerned about ideologically-inspired violence. Well, OK, he's terribly, terribly concerned about some ideologically-inspired violence. Not all of it.

Apparently, life is short, Adrian is a busy man and you have to pick your outrages carefully.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Really, is there any way you're going to top this?

It’s one thing to criticize Israel for their policies with regards to Gaza and Palestine. The use of phosphorous shelling, civilian casualties, and expansion of settlements are all worrisome.

Adrian opines that the indiscriminate use of illegal white phosphorus munitions against civilian populations is, in his words, "worrisome." That's quite the delightful bit of understatement there, wouldn't you say? Sort of like saying there's something about Catholic priests fucking altar boys that makes you uneasy but you can't quite put your finger on it.

P.S. In case you need to see what white phosphorus does to the human body, well, take a deep breath first. Yeah, I think we can all agree that that's "worrisome." Possibly even "disturbing," but I suspect Adrian would draw the line at "disturbing."

Ha! He's deep-sixed both articles!

These people would be funny if they were not such hypocrites and liars.

So Adrian got his marching orders on a story that is curious at best. Typical of the Conservative group-think….

Did the incident happen? I'd venture yes but I find too many elements of the story to be odd - there is some bullshit here.

We have a pro-Israel, pro-Conservative student that claims to be attacked by 10 to 15 Arabs. He claims to recognize (a few)... Seems like a slam-dunk and I'm sure charges will be laid real soon... Let’s not forget that this student has some rather spurious friends and his FB page shows him draped in an Israeli flag…

Give the Connies a few more days and they will get their narrative in order to a story that makes more sense… Already some papers are reporting that the student was attacked on campus…

The situation is already far worse in Great Britain where Universities accept droves of idealistic and wealthy Arabs.

Sheikh Musa Admani, an imam at London Metropolitan University, warned that prayer rooms in British Universities are a breeding ground for extremists and fundamentalist propagandists who hire “hate-preachers” to come and tell Muslims about the evils of western society.


How is this different from Conservative sending "operatives" and giving some instructions on how to infiltrate student councils?

I bet that's different, because it always is....

No, Dawg, he hasn't deleted any articles. Those last two links were to searches at both his current blog and his previous blog, demonstrating that he wrote not a single article about the murder of abortion provider Dr. George Tiller.

But when the right kind of ideological violence comes along, he's all over it like Dr. Roy on a bag of Twinkies.

I rather like his bold pronoucement:
That Canadian Universities are a haven for anti-Semitism is well-documented.

I think I may start using that...
"That all Canadian Conservatives are blithering idiots and many child molesters is well-documented...."

We should add that one of the "victims" is not foreign to lying...

The story does seem rather disjointed in the continuity of events. I think the 24 hour rule, at the very least, needs to be applied here. Also, it appears Patrick is copying your style in the comments section of that post. I suppose it is another one of his acts of 'subterfuge."
