jonas opines: 6/10, because I suspect that you simply cut and pasted this from an actual rant.  I've seen that stated pretty much verbatim on the CNN comment threads.


No, I am sorry to say that steaming pile of crap is an original composition.  The underlying concepts are well known, of course, and have existed long before CNN, and the Internet.

Will you now upgrade your troll rating?

Because I am so lacking in real-life accomplishments that my only source of self-affirmation is positive feedback on my trolling.

Also, my masters pay by the troll rating.

Parthenogenetic: jso2897: Don't start sucking your own dick quite yet - as I pointed out, I was well aware you were trolling me, and used it as an excuse to amke a speech.
I like to make speeches. They bore people, and I'm highly passive-aggressive.

Those recruiting commercials told me I am an Army of One.  So while I am an individual, I am also a collective, so to speak, because the US Army is an agency of the government of the United States of America, which would surely never lie to its citizens.

So when you say hurtful things about me, without knowing me at all as an individual, you are actually engaging in the collectivist bigotry you decry.

I will now scrunch up my face in sorrow like Dawson, and go and cry like an emo kid.


Hurtful? HURTFUL? It's only a figure of speech - and anyway, if I could literally suck my own dick, I'd never leave the house.

Ennuipoet: Hmmm, rich white guy (who apparently has never served a day in the military from his Linkedin profile) decides to go all Amurca and assault a guy for being Muslim?  So, when will he be running for Congress?
There's a six-year gap in his resume.
Maybe he was in the military and he's just too modest to mention it.
Or maybe he was in prison for child molesting.


My bet is on "Afghan terror boot camp".  He who smelt it, dealt it, right?

Parthenogenetic:
Sometimes when I go fishing, I cast my line out but somehow my tackle ensnares my hat, which goes flying off of my head and messily plops in the water. Then I have to reel my hat back in, or use my net to scoop it out of the water, which is annoying and embarrassing.

This is the internet forum equivalent of that.

For a pretty good explanation on how contractors ended up doing this kind of thing, and how the CIA and DOD ended up becoming almost indistinguishable, check this out.  A great read.

DeathCipris: PunGent: FTA:  "When Salim asks if the passenger is threatening him, the passenger uses an obscene phrase to respond in the affirmative."

See, this is what we lawyers call a "time to explore settlement options" moment.

Punchy's best bet is to try to get the recording ruled inadmissible...otherwise he's screwed.
Failing that, pack the jury with Fox viewers...

In the area of VA he is in, more than likely that is what he will get on the jury. That is if this even makes it to trial.


Virginia is a one party consent state. As long as one person being recorded is aware the conversation is being recorded then it's legal. So Mr. Bigot best be hoping he can settle out of court.

Johnny Swank: Seriously, why are 99% of white christians such pants-shiating chickenshiats? Idiots.


I demand that you retract your slanderous statement, sir!  This gentleman has already been vilified enough by gutless, nutless, America-hating libtardos for doing his part to counteract the insidious Sharia infiltration of America! Freedom ain't free!

A pants-shiatting chickenshiat would have seen a scary looking black Muslim cabdriver, and refused to enter the cab, lest he be an unwilling and unwitting passenger in a suicide car bombing.

This man did not shiat his pants, at least not that we know of, thanks to the journalistic incompetence of the lie-beral lamestream media.   And punching a black Muslim militant with sufficient force to cause a fractured jaw is not the act of a chickenshiat!

Parthenogenetic: jso2897: A lot of bigotry apologists trying to change the subject in this thread. Does the actual subject of this thread make you uncomfortable, guys?

Let me guess.  You are going to castigate the Christian conservative movement, while embracing violent Muslim jihadists.  That is because you have drank the liberal Kool-Aid of multiculturalism, and do not understand what the hell you are talking about.

Those people will not be satisfied until they overthrow the government of the United States of America and replace our precious republic with a ruthless theocracy.  There will be no distinction between civil law and the brutal demands of their bizarre Middle Eastern deity.  They will attempt to forcibly convert you to their harsh and antiquated religion.  Anybody who does not bow down to their religious authority will be persecuted, or will at best be treated as a second class citizen. They will not tolerate dissent, and history has shown that they will gladly resort to confiscation of property, imprisonment, exile, torture, and even execution of citizens who do not submit to the dictates of their religion.  Women will be reduced to the status of property, and the practice of slavery could very well resume, as it is explicitly permitted in their holy scriptures.

How does that sound to you, libtardos?  Because the Muslim theocracy will be even worse!


this is beautiful

Interesting nugget from the comments section:

David Rathbun5/1/2013 6:25 PM EDTI had this misfortune to meet Mr Dahlenberg over a year ago when I assume he was not drunk. I was driving a small sports car and he was behind me at a red light. When I didn't turn fast enough on a red light for his taste he tried to ram my car with his white SUV with Va tag "Ifly". He then continued to swerve at my car, slam on his brakes and try to block my path with his SUV. It's scary to think that this unstable twerp as a licence to operate a car as well as a pilots license. I hope he can receive the help he needs (behind bars). ...See MoreI live in that area too and I know I've seen that vanity plate in town, I'll have to keep an eye out for it from now onUser IP:

What a  Mooslim terrorist  serving in the US Army looks like

That's not a terrorist. That is a disgruntled employee.

No, he's a terrorist who was working with Al-Qaeda they have his emails and other communications that prove it.

That's kinda the point.

You know though, even though that is the point, it makes it hard not to discount an entire post for a single word. At least, IMO.
It immediately makes me think a teen wrote it.
Might as well follow it up with, "You mad bro?"


Fair enough.  I'm sure I've discounted other otherwise cogent arguments because of irritating slang or buzzwords.

MurphyMurphy: The only justice that could be served is to break the rich white guy's jaw. Then every day that shiat hurts you're all "fark, I'm farking stupid and a dick. this hurts"


I don't condone physical injury as a judicial punishment--let his cellmates take care of that extra-judicially.  I would like to see wealthy, privileged people serve jail sentences--even short ones--rather than pay restitution or do "community service".  Monetary penalties are too often treated as "just one of those things" by those who can afford to pay them (some businesses even budget for them), and a stint of community service isn't as bad if you don't have to worry about getting fired from your regular job because you're the boss.  Jail time is more egalitarian.  In fact, a wealthy man should be scared shiatless by the prospect of a 30 day stretch during which he cannot pull his money out of a tanking stock market or take evasive action against his wife's divorce lawyer.

Blasphemous Knave: One of the greatest dangers to civil society is extremism and tribalism. Unfortunately, rather than recognizing that, your average 'merican's  just becoming more extremely Islamophobic.

My facebook is increasingly being peppered with just precious little "jokes" expressing the general views of the assailant. Any ideas for a mild, educational response that might actually get through? Or should I just give up?

rosemary's baby daddy: Not to play the devil's advocate but him referring to jihad as a "self struggle" to a drunk racist is kind of trolling.  Doing so with a camera running after the guy implied he was rich turns it into an even more questionable move.

It's based on the pronunciation of "America" by the derp brigade.

Generally it's something like "Not in MAH UHMERICA" or somesuch. It's based purely on how stupid ultra-nationalist Americans sound.

Try "have you ever met a Muslim?"  It probably won't work on most of them, but you might get the odd introspective outlier.


That really has to be the case I think... at least for some. I have a crazy aunt who used to send me all kinds of FWD:FWD:FWD: emails and I created a filter for her many years ago. When my younger sister started dating, and eventually married, a guy who is Muslim, she (my mom) finally had to tell my aunt to stop sending her stuff. I was proud of her, but a little disappointed that it seemed like only after knowing my sister's husband did my mom seem to realize how batshiat-crazy my aunt is.

I'm not excusing bigotry moron.  Punching anyone for reasons other than self defense is 100% deplorable.  There's a little thing called trying to diffuse situations that I was referring to.  He purposely did the opposite knowing the guy was rich and a camera was rolling.

Harry Freakstorm: The video, which Salim took on his phone, appears to show physical contact between the men but does not capture the alleged punch that Salim said fractured his jaw, the Boston bombing reference or the threat to kill. Salim said that those happened after he stopped recording so he could call the police.

and later....

"If you're a [expletive] Muslim flying jets into the World Trade Center, then [expletive] you, I will slice your [expletive] throat right now."

I would take that as a death threat. So, can a cabby throw out a drunken passenger that he considers a threat to his safety?


Hell, he can do it just for complaining about the music.

What on Earth make you say that ? That's always the cons who say that motives should not come into account, generally as an argument against hate crimes.

Do you have a crowd of imaginary liberals in your head that provide all the quotes and opinions that fit your preconceived notions ?


I was wondering about this just yesterday. It seems every Fark thread has some variant of that guy who posts liberals say or think, though no one has said it. "According to Fark libs, I'm supposed to beat my wife." Sure, that's an exaggeration, but you get the point.

Look, I know you are still upset that the Boston bombing wasn't carried out by a Tea Bagger like you were first told, and your fearful joy turned to impotent sadness when it actualy was yet another Muslim that did it, but you'll just have to get over your hate of old white people that don't like taxes. They arn't hurting anyone, let them derp in peace.
