Sounds like to me that some arab terrorists and liberal students threatened him with violence so he's trying to retract for his and his family's safety.

Typical arabs and terrorist huggers.

I thought his article was right on!
2002-03-01 08:31:16 AM  
But Fb-, you know that liberals would NEVER submit to violence.
2002-03-01 08:31:45 AM  
Coming from it does from someone who is on the record saying that he celebrates every time a muslim is killed in an air accident or whatever, I doubt he needs your support.
2002-03-01 08:32:29 AM  
Ahh. The old "just joking" defense. That's funnier than a bucket of pelicans.
2002-03-01 08:32:33 AM  

That's right. It's not like the liberals would go to one of their 'Anti-WTO & Anti-Capitalism' rallies and end up killing police officers, burning cars, destroying homes and businesses and threaten and beat people that don't conform to their anti-corporation views.

Oh wait, nevermind.
2002-03-01 08:32:53 AM  
Digital, I get death threats from conservatives on fark mailed to me once a week.

Does that mean all conservatives are violent?
2002-03-01 08:33:13 AM  
I think he makes an incredibly valid point.
2002-03-01 08:33:20 AM  
"If anyone were to act on such feelings, it would prove the person writing that column right."

Exactly. He was right on the mark with everything he said. Good article.
2002-03-01 08:33:30 AM  
He's white?

GOD! Look at that picture! Anything passes for white these days.

Terrorist huggers: TAKE IT BACK

This guy: Ok, ok, I take it back.

Terrorist huggers: SAY IT!!!

This guy: I'm sorry! I'm sorry, I take it back.

Terrorist huggers: Now say you like big dicks.

This guy: What?

Terrorist huggers: twisting arm SAY IT!!!

This guy: OW! Ok, like big dicks

Terrorist huggers: twisting arm harder You little...

This guy: OWWWW!! sobbing Mmmm mmmm I like big dicks...mmmm I love 'em.

Terrorist huggers: letting go Heh, fag.

Ahhh, Heathers
2002-03-01 08:35:22 AM  
I don't know. I'm too intelligent to try making a judgment on an entire group based on some individuals in that group. I leave that up to the liberals.
2002-03-01 08:36:49 AM  
Christianity sucks.

Judaism sucks.

Hindism sucks.

Shintoism sucks.

Wicca sucks.

Satanism sucks.

Everbody covered?

2002-03-01 08:37:35 AM  
goober - I don't see the 'just joking' you do. He intentionally wrote an inflammatory article to elicit an irrational response, thereby supporting his point about religious fanatacism. I think he did not properly guage the irrationality of the response, and it scared the hell out of him. BTW, bucket of pelicans - hilarity!
2002-03-01 08:38:09 AM  
"killing police officers"

At the G8 summit it was the other way round.

"destroying homes"

Your just making it up now.

Fb, still planning to celebrate that 7 Year old Palestinian being shot today?
2002-03-01 08:38:26 AM  
lame...too bad he can stand up for his point of view...however retarded it is.
2002-03-01 08:38:31 AM  
What a pussy. He should have told everyone who complained to screw off. Be a man! Stand your ground!
2002-03-01 08:38:46 AM  
What's with Liberals and Conservatives? Arent most people in between?
2002-03-01 08:39:10 AM  
"He intentionally wrote an inflammatory article to elicit an irrational response"

He said something that needed to be said. It's called free speech.
2002-03-01 08:40:02 AM  
The article was great. If I was him getting badgered for an apology, I'd agree to write it and then write a followup saying that I stand by my article and that some people need to toughen up and get a farking life. He got the response he wanted. He did not need to apologize.
2002-03-01 08:40:05 AM  
I thought buying drugs supported terrorism, not buying gas.
2002-03-01 08:41:29 AM  
Dogfather_jr: I wrote the column as an intentional exaggeration, a twisting of information and hearsay, in order to prove a point <- I read that as "Just joking", but not in a HA-HA way...

I've been wrong before, though.
2002-03-01 08:42:00 AM  
Mesh - it is free speech, no question. Whether it needed to be said, well that's another matter.
2002-03-01 08:42:02 AM  

Ohhh, that's right. I forgot, you hate organized people in uniform, you support the rogue terrorist freedom fighters like your Genoa buddies. Since you hate organized protectors like police and the military, then it only makes sense that you blame the entire affair on them.

I'm not suprised.
2002-03-01 08:43:25 AM  
No, Ironbar- having gas supports terrorism.
2002-03-01 08:43:33 AM  
There's no law against being an asshole, John Rocker and Fb proved that.
2002-03-01 08:43:54 AM  
it's sad when a parody must be stated as such to avoid violence, of course if i'd done it i'd have just said fark them all if they can't take a joke. but maybe he doesn't have anywhere else to go to school.. oh well, one more thing, you forgot us buddhists ironbar, i'm feeling left out.
2002-03-01 08:44:01 AM  
Sounds to me like a typical American reply, say whatever is convinent at the current situation, and forget things said before, they have no value anyway. You can use this tatic to escape from any situation, international agreements, war, politics etc. Except for the death penalty ofcourse, but hey this is America...
2002-03-01 08:44:29 AM  
Fb, that makes no sense at all. Do you have a single example of a policeman being killed by an anti-cap protestor?

BTW I note you ignored my question, are you planning to go out tonight to celebrate the & year old Palestinian who was shot today?

You have said many times you are happy when a muslim is killed, still of the same viewpoint?
2002-03-01 08:45:49 AM  
Ironbar - there is no law, and that's the point I think he's trying to make. A rational person would say 'You're being an asshole, so I'm going to ignore you and get on with my life'. An irrational person (any kind, not just a religious fanatic) would say 'You're being an asshole, so I'm going to kill you'.
2002-03-01 08:46:04 AM  
Ctenidae-Then I should watch for the CIA, I was tooting up a storm, yesterday
2002-03-01 08:46:31 AM  

He is too busy celebrating the death of the 4 spaniards in the Iranian plane crash.
2002-03-01 08:47:01 AM  

Oh, I didn't know you were asking me a question. I thought you were just putting bullshiat words in my mouth again.

It's not all the Muslims I want killed. I just find it amusing when a jet full of Iranian protestors who were, 12 hours earlier, vowing to spend their lives killing Americans like me, slams into a mountain side killing all on board.

It was Allah's work my brother. You should understand it and praise him like I did.
2002-03-01 08:47:29 AM  
I have to agree witht he guy's point (at least as stated in his explanation), but his methodology could use a little help. he needn't have written the article to see if people would react that way. Obviously they will. More effective would have been an even harsher article, with the last paragraph being something along the lines of " So, you mad yet? See, that's my point." Might have saved him a few death threats.
2002-03-01 08:48:04 AM  
*Perfect timing*
2002-03-01 08:48:21 AM  
so the root of it all, is that some idiot from wayne state wrote an article attacking one of the world's major religions, and then says "just kidding"? what a farkwad. i mean, i'm not saying the guy should be afraid for his life, but i think a beating is in order. my god, the guy lives in southfield, with michigan's largest arab/islamic population, and he didn't expect that somebody would take offense at this and want to beat his ass? if somebody wrote a column about how great he thinks my 13 year old sister is in bed, i'd kick his ass, whether or not it was "just a joke", and that's basically the same principle behind attacking someone's religion. i'll say it again, he's a farkwad.
2002-03-01 08:49:29 AM  
Harmonia, sorry about all those death threats. I'll stop if you stop sending me Ziggy cartoons.
2002-03-01 08:49:41 AM  
This guy should have learned from Salman Rushdie. Write one bad thing about a muslim and they will go apeshiat and spend the rest of their lives trying to kill you.

Now that's a peaceful religion!
2002-03-01 08:50:13 AM  
, calm them down, please.

[image from too old to be available]
You got it, kid. QUIET DOWN, EVERYONE!!!
2002-03-01 08:50:24 AM  
Hansmoleman - you just proved his point in spades.
2002-03-01 08:50:27 AM  
Thats funnt Fb I have lots of recollections of various posts of you saying

"Worthless towelheads lets kill them all"


"We should nuke all of those barbarians"

Must have been my imagination.
2002-03-01 08:51:10 AM  
[image from too old to be available]
And you farked up your html, kid.

I'm sorry sir.
2002-03-01 08:51:15 AM  

Nobody has written one because your 13 year old sister is a dead fish in the sack. I had to smack her around just to get some movement out of her. I figure with an ass like that she'd be a good lay. Guess not.
2002-03-01 08:51:28 AM  
Fair enough Frolixo, I will send peanuts instead

2002-03-01 08:51:50 AM  
Well he did prove a point that we are so politically correct that everybody wanted to crucify this kid. If somebody was secure about their religion they would have just smiled at his silly blather, not get rabid over it.
2002-03-01 08:52:05 AM  
of course, this is the same paper that prints a response to this column written by none other than "jedi master". wow.
2002-03-01 08:52:46 AM  
(at least it's not Familiy Circus)
2002-03-01 08:54:22 AM  
hansmoleman, that kind of response is the problem. retaliating against words with violence is pathetic, and if the only thing you could do to me if i said how great your sister is in bed is kick my ass, well, i'd gladly say so loudly. grow up, kicking the ass of another for words is a good way to spend some time in jail while they laugh and make out with your sister.
2002-03-01 08:54:23 AM  
Spram: Fence-straddling or being middle-of-the-road are not allowed on Fark. You may think that you're close to center, but rest assured you're either a liberal or a conservative.


They've been telling me I'm a liberal long enough,that I'm beginning to believe it.
2002-03-01 08:54:36 AM  
(gets popcorn, sits back and watches Fb- and Harmonia go at it)
2002-03-01 08:55:11 AM  

I just find it amusing when a jet full of Iranian protestors

Haha .. I see facts aren't part of your knowledge.
