The blue banner is 16 by 8 feet and hangs on the south side of the building at 2307 Hubbell Ave. The words were written with red spray paint, police said.

Once again proving the old adage: if you can't say it with spray paint, it's not worth saying.

Remember when Bill Clinton was a Russian Marxist agent? God, I love right-wingers!

Yeah, I remember that. Fortunately, it turns out he was just a drug-smuggling mass murderer.

Among the umm "anti-jihad" bloggers, Dhimmi is a term typically thrown around to mean someone who is unable to understand the existential threat that Islam poses to the west.

Or maybe he wasn't just speaking of lyre-family instruments made by and played by Moslems--hell, for all we know, he could have been basically saying Barack Obama was a Moslem-owned Cetra and thus backhandedly accusing him of being a relative of Aeris Gainesborough and in turn using Super Sekrit Cetra PowersTM Hojo to turn us all into basically an army of Cetra-descended hashashiyya to fight Geostigma-infected people at risk of turning into incredibly biseinen Sephiroth clones.

Hell, the above is only slightly more ridiculous than SOME of the shiat Teabaggers have accused Barack Obama of being--I'm just waiting for the ultimate meeting of all the theories where it will be claimed Barack Obama is the culmination of a thousands-year-old plot run by the Illuminati (who are in turn run by the Setians who had their homeworld invaded by humanity and modern Earth biota, who are actually descendants of a colony of Lizard Aliens from Sirius B) involving the ancient Assassins, Lord Xenu (who secretly controls the Hawaii Board of Health and birth registrations from his home in Kilahuea where he's presently shacking up with Lady Pele), Elvis, Bigfoot, the bath salts industry, and Nightmare Moon.

No, he meant "dhimmi." It's a term that Muslim-hating bigots misuse often. "Dhimmi" refers to a protected legal status afforded to non-Muslims living in Muslim communities. While there were certainly times and places in which dhimmis were mistreated or subjected to sanctions of one kind or another, in general it was a preferential status (for instance, being excused from otherwise enforceable norms relating to gender roles). The derogatory association given to the term by bigots reflects a fundamental misunderstanding of the concept.

And during the Dark Ages and even well into the 15th century (i.e. the Inquisition), the Muslim world was much more preferable to Jews and other religious minorities, compared to the religious persecution they faced in Europe.

Not to mention being excused from compulsory military service,. Some regimes made it quite difficult for dhimmis to convert to Islam because they didn't want to lose the extra tax money they brought in.

Well, that might be a bit of a stretch. During the Crusades the Christians and Muslims pretty much gave as good as they got, while the Jews pretty much had to take it in the ass from both. Jewish histories of the Crusades are particularly depressing to read. Maimonides rose quite high up in the Muslim political culture of his time and space, but still had to take some serious crap for being Jewish.

2012-10-06 11:08:42 PM

Pants full of macaroni!!: Maybe the word he's looking for is "taqiyya".


The interesting part of taquiyya is that its almost entirely a Shia concept that is applicable for Shias living under oppressive Sunni rule. It simply means that when under immoral compulsion, a Shia population can suspend performing Shia style forms of assembly and worship so that the Sunnis can't single them out for persecution. While the outward forms can be temporary optional rather than obligatory, the inner faith of the individual (iman) and the general command to do righteous things (ihsan) cannot be suspended. It is very rarely discussed with regard to Sunnis living in non-Muslim dominant environments.

BSABSVR: Among the umm "anti-jihad" bloggers, Dhimmi is a term typically thrown around to mean someone who is unable to understand the existential threat that Islam poses to the west.


Its also contrasted with "infidel" which is a label often embraced by so-called "anti-jihad" bloggers. Never mind that "infidel" traditionally refers to polytheists that have openly declared warfare or threats of extermination towards Muslims. Its not really used to describe fellow monotheists like Christians or Jews. Few in the "anti-jihad" movement would describe themselves as polytheists, of course.

He doesn't think all Muslims should be exterminated because of al-Qaeda.

shotglasss: Candidate signs are vandalized all the time, so nothing to worry about here.


That's true, but the religious paranoia and illiteracy in the vandalism are endemic of a specific kind of ignorance that American Conservatism has been fostering over the last few decades, and that is something everyone should be very concerned about.

My gut feeling when I see that is "if you're not outraged by that then you're not paying attention". But I know otherwise thoughtful people that believe that and/or would consider putting it on their car. I honestly don't get it.

Especially as he doesn't live in a state where Islam is the state religion as a follower of an Abrahamic faith (a la the Ottoman Empire), I'd think it'd be rather impossible for the President to be a dhimmi in any sort of sense :D

For those who don't get why some of us laugh at teabaggers who misuse this term--"dhimmi" was a status in where other "People of the Book" (Jewish and Christian peoples living there) were left in peace as long as they identified themselves and paid a tax in lieu of the Moslem tithe. Whilst this wasn't total freedom, it was still better than what was done to polytheists or infidel who followed the pre-Abrahamic faiths (which generally consisted of "kill everybody and salt the earth" in an approach not really dissimilar to how the early Israelis treated followers of "the old religion" of the ba'alim and astharot; pretty much the "infidels" mentioned in the Koran were the last gasp of the pre-Abrahamic "old religion" that had been around since the time of Ur if not earlier). Basically it was their method of noting "OK, these are people of the book, let them be".

In short--"dhimmi" = followers of Abrahamic faiths that aren't Moslem (but are acknowledged as predecessor religions); "infidel" = "heathen" or "pagan" (and seen as evil).

(And I'll also note that--even with ID and taxes--noting members of non-Moslem Abrahamic faiths as dhimmi was still considerably more tolerant than what the Roman Catholic Church was doing at the time, especially in Spain after about 1400 CE or so (in that pretty much every person of a non-Catholic Abrahamic faith was forced to leave or convert or be put to the knife--not just the Moorish Moslem contingent in what was Al-Andalus, but pretty much the entire Jewish population as well which was one of the largest Sephardim groups outside the Middle East). Up to the Crusades, it was roughly akin to how a lot of European countries with an established religion required a specific tax from people not a member of the state church (something Germany is still trying to return, as an aside)--of course, the Crusades pretty much shat the bed for everybody as far as that went and things went RAPIDLY downhill from there.)

I'll also note that about the only two countries that have a status akin to the old dhimmi status are the two most well-known Moslem theocracies--Iran (Shi'a) and Saudi Arabia (Sunni); both allow Christians in and acknowledge them as People Of The Book and not as pagans as long as they don't overtly prosyletise. (Were the situation with Israel different and not extremely politicised in the Middle East, it's entirely possible the same franchise would be extended to persons of Jewish faith--unfortunately, much like the Crusades caused the bed to be shat in regards to Christian/Moslem relations, the ongoing issues with Israel and Palestine have largely caused the bed to be shat in regards to Moslem/Jewish relations--a fair amount of the restrictions relate to being in a technical state of Cold War with Israel.)

You think you're going to live your life alone
In darkness and seclusion... yeah, I know
You've been out there and tried to mix with those animals
And it just left you full of humiliated confusion
So you stagger back home and wait for nothing
But the solitary refinement of your room spits you back onto the streets
And now you're desperate and in need of human contact
And then you meet me and your whole world changes
Because everything I say is everything you've ever wanted to hear
So you drop all you defenses, and you drop all your fears
I'm perfect in every way
'Cause I make you feel so strong and so powerfull inside
You feel so lucky
But your ego obscures reality but you never bothered to
Wonder why things are going so well
You want to know why?

'Cause I'm a lyre, yeah, I'm a lyre
I'll tear your mind out, I'll burn your soul
I'll turn you into me, I'll turn you into me
'Cause I'm a lyre, a lier, a lier, a lier, a lier...

I'll hide behind a smile and understanding eyes
And I'll tell you things that you already know so you can say:
I really identify with you, so much
And all the time that you're needing me is just the time
That I'm bleeding you, don't you get it yet?
I'll come to you like an affliction then I'll leave you like an addiction
You'll never forget me... you wanna know why?
