Once you know the real story of the guy on the right in that picture, he's much more of a sympathetic character.

You see, he's the maintenance guy for a local building. And of course they're trying to keep costs low, so they don't pay him as much as he's worth and they don't give him any budget at all to try to keep everything up. But it's a tough economy and he's just glad to have a job at all so he can feed his family. Anyway, they woke him up last night a little before 2 in the morning saying the basement is flooding. And instead of telling them that of course it's flooding, you haven't let me fix the damned pipes even though I've been warning you for the last two years, he rushes over to deal with it. So he fixes the pipes (and you know that the hardware shop owner was a real cheerful guy at 4 in the morning!) and manages to get it all cleaned up by around noon. So after ten hours ankle deep in water that jerk on the second floor complains that the paint is looking a little worn in the stairwell. And he bites back the angry response he wants to give because if he can just touch up the paint real quick, then he's leaving for the day.

So now, after all that, he gets to go back home and he walks out planning the rest of the day. He'll be able to rest, maybe take a short nap. And his wife's cousin Ahmed, who always wants to talk about something he's angry about (lately it's some internet video), has said he won't be staying with them the next couple days, so that's great news. And his wife told him that as a "thank you" for his patience with Ahmed she's going to make him a special dinner. He's hoping it's her meatloaf. You know, she makes a delicious meatloaf. With some mashed potatoes on the side, it's a life-changing experience. Okay, the potatoes aren't the best, but her gravy makes up for it. Even the prophet probably didn't get gravy that good. And then, after he's gotten a nap and a good dinner, maybe they can send the kids over the neighbor's house to play so he and his wife can have some alone time. Even after almost 14 years of marriage, she's still got an incredible body. It's been too long since they were able...

And then the sound of gunfire makes him look around. Without meaning too, he's walked out into the middle of some crowd shouting about something or the other. And now some westerner with a khaki vest and a camera is sticking the camera in his face.

And that's how Newsweek ended up with that picture.

Actually, I didn't really notice any serious political bias one way or the other. Maybe its there and I'm not seeing it. Newsweek is already rightly getting a ton of crap for its sensationalist cover from people far better placed than any of us. Maybe a little humor isn't so bad.

Double THIS.

Neither of those statements is correct. She argued to limit immigration from countries with Islamic governments, and when she was elected to Parliament, she had been granted Dutch citizenship. Her citizenship was stripped after it became known that she had made false statements in her asylum application.

So just to be clear

1) She wasn't just generally against immigration after she immigrated she was against immigration SPECIFICALLY from the types of place she had just immigrated from.

2) She didn't lie about her citizenship in order to be elected to parliament, she lied in order to get citizenship so she should be elected to parliament.

I will make the necessary edits to the reasons that she is total shiatbag. ie change a couple of prepositions, leaving her shiatbag rating unchanged at total farking shiatbag.


You are right. She should have told the truth on her asylum application so she could be deported back to Somalia to live with the family that had her vagina cut out. What a farking count. How dare she try to stop islamofascists from turning Holland from a free and tolerant country into another 3rd world shiat hole.

hubiestubert: On a serious note: if folks don't understand by now that there is a lot of resentment about policies and actions over the last 75 years in regard to the Middle East by folks from the West, then a single article isn't really going to dispel or educate that degree of any self awareness or sense of history.

Look at the dismantling of Iran's greatest democracy, authored by Western powers, and reinstallation of the Shah after being deposed. Look at Afghanistan's cynical use to oust the Russians, and consequent abandonment. Look at the plight of the Palestinians--who, to be quite fair, were just not quite as quick off the gate to get their own chunk of pie as the Jews were; and to be fair, they didn't have backers with quite as deep pockets. Look at Libya. Look at Syria. Look at Iraq. Look at how we've encouraged the most radical elements, when it suited our purposes, and how quick we have been to disavow them. Look at the policies that the US has advocated publicly, and then sandbagged when it came time to real negotiations.

There are folks in the Middle East who will NEVER trust a damn thing ANYONE from the US government says in policy, and were our roles reversed, we wouldn't either. Why are so many angry? They actually paid attention in history...

Silly Jesus: kbronsito: Angry mob lashes out against people that had nothing to do with the source of their anger damage property and kill four (OMG HOW BARBARIC THIS IS AN OUTRAGE).

Angry mob in charge of the most powerful military in the world lashes out and bomb's country that had nothing to do with what they were angry about needlessly sacrificing civilians and troops, causing untold property damage and death (Meh. C'est la vie).

I see where you're going with this...and as much as you disagree with it, our reasons for doing it (going to war) were still better than "you talked about my sky wizard and it hurt my feelings so I need to kill someone."


Which reasons? Lining Halliburton's coffers with gold from our treasury? Giving Cheney, GWB and company a way to test their dumbass theories about geopolitics by letting them secure a permanent US military presence in the heart of the Mideast? Allowing GWB to avenge the assassination attempt on his dad so he could feel like a man instead of a boy? And its not like the people calling for the invasion didn't tap into the religious fears and fervor of America's Christians to get what they wanted.

Headso: I_C_Weener: Headso: That one guy is acting like someone just ran over his kid. Weird how social conservatives love to get all dramatic like that, everything is a huge outrage, stupid movies, arugula, cartoons, mustard...


Feel that whoosh as the thread went right over your head?

just moderate the thread and delete my post if you don't feel that it is on topic...



Can't moderate a thread and post in it.  Plus, it isn't off topic as much as off the pulse of the posters in thread.  Thank you for posting, please enjoy the remainder of your posting experience.

I think we should send a sh*tload of beard trimmers over there as humanitarian aid. Maybe if all of these guys' faces didn't look like nutsacks, they would be in a better mood.

Ever hear of Muhamad Ali?  Made a living beating people up.  A few happy photos of people (probably happy at the fact that some Westerner lost their car keys) does not make up for a lifetime of rope a dope.

On a serious note: if folks don't understand by now that there is a lot of resentment about policies and actions over the last 75 years in regard to the Middle East by folks from the West, then a single article isn't really going to dispel or educate that degree of any self awareness or sense of history.

Look at the dismantling of Iran's greatest democracy, authored by Western powers, and reinstallation of the Shah after being deposed. Look at Afghanistan's cynical use to oust the Russians, and consequent abandonment. Look at the plight of the Palestinians--who, to be quite fair, were just not quite as quick off the gate to get their own chunk of pie as the Jews were; and to be fair, they didn't have backers with quite as deep pockets. Look at Libya. Look at Syria. Look at Iraq. Look at how we've encouraged the most radical elements, when it suited our purposes, and how quick we have been to disavow them. Look at the policies that the US has advocated publicly, and then sandbagged when it came time to real negotiations.

There are folks in the Middle East who will NEVER trust a damn thing ANYONE from the US government says in policy, and were our roles reversed, we wouldn't either. Why are so many angry? They actually paid attention in history...

Nabb1: Demetrius: Nabb1: An apology for these continued "abuses" of freedom of speech from the Secretary of State may be in order.

Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences.

No, but there's no reason for our leaders to apologize for our Constitutional rights because some people choose to act like a bunch of savages when someone says something they don't like.


Shockingly we're trying diplomacy. And while these idiots reacting this way is inexcusable, we know what it's going to happen and shouldn't expect much else.

Looking at it another way...I've got a relative that's a bit racist. He made some somewhat offensive comments in front of some friends, particularly offensive to one. He's got a right to say what he likes, but I called him on it because it was offensive not only to my guests but to me as well. I could have easily tried to laugh it off and sweep it under the rug, but I likely would have lost a friend. Just because he can say something doesn't make it right.

You know who else lied about citizenship to gain public office?

Maybe they are protesting a Black President.  I'm just saying that neither Libya, Pakistan, nor Egypt have black presidents.  It could be the source of all their rage.
