Today in Muslim-bashing

In some places, old news is a cover-up.


UPDATE


I posted a very civil comment at Small Dead Animals basically calling "bullshit" on the claim that the story had been covered up. Kate MacMillan is moderating comments these days and mine didn't make the cut.
It's not just Human Rights Commissions that act as censors these days, is it?

You do your own share of moderating comments, Mark.


You were more interesting when you weren't Kinsella's little whipped lapdog.

My comments aren't moderated, and I certainly wouldn't stop a comment simply because it proved the entire thesis of my post was wrong. Pictures of the plane accident didn't "finally leak out". They were puiblished all over the place right after the accident. And a careful look at the story shows the crew was being trained by Airbus techies.
And whether they're Arab, Bantu, Mohawk or Cheshire doesn't make a whit of difference. Her post was just race-bating. She's smart enough to know exactly what she's doing and to know better.

I call bullshit st bear - you are well known for both editing and deleting submitted posts when the 'mood' struck - wouldn't you agree?

It's not like you conferred with your pals tiki, muffly, 8ace et al - is it? lmao. . . .

Betcha this doesn't make it - wot say vous?

Sorry, mr anonymous person, but you seem to be hung up on old discussion forum fights. Stick to the topics here or I will moderate your comments.
No blog puts up with gratuitous insults. Don't expect me to.
If you want to argue a point in a blog post with facts, the way I did with Kate McMillan, you're more than welcome. If you want to cast aspersions that are unintelligible to everyone except a few Frank magazine Forum posters of the early part of this decade, I will take them off. They are way too far off topic.

a) I am not moderating comments
b) Yours was caught in the spam filter
c) It was released when I had the opportunity to get online
d) You owe me a retraction and apology.

Thank you very much.

oh, and

e) You should also thank me again for not banning your ass when you posted comments at SDA using the identity of a third person.

That's an awfully powerful spam filter and it takes an incredibly long time for you to clean it out, but I'll take your word for it.

I notice you don't deny race-bating, which is quite honest of you.

You need a powerful spam filter when your site draws three million plus visits a year. Should the day ever come that you generate - you know - traffic, you'll learn about these things, too.

Secondly, Islam isn't a race. It's a political belief system masquerading as religion. As such, it's open to criticism.

If you took the time to learn such distinctions, you might some day earn some of that "traffic" I speak of.

Your site drips with racism these days. And the "Arab" stuff in that post is what it is.
What colour was the pilot who hit the snowplow at Cranbrook, BC? Or the two pilots who collided their 747s at Tennerife back in the 1970s? This accident wasn't important. No one died except the accountant who had to deal with the bill.
If I need to get into race-bating to get traffic (which, with $1.65, gets you an extra large at Timmy's), I'll pass.
