JesusJuice: This woman is an insane coont, but Muslims brought this on themselves.

If they stop oppressing women, raping children, and murdering everyone, people might have a better image of their faith.


That haven't quite murdered everyone.

Woman sounds belligerent and highly drunk and stupid.  She should be fined heavily based solely on those facts.

nmrsnr: Let me guess, woman from the boonies calls a cab in Alexandria, right?

::checks article::

That's what I thought.

Once you get away from Alexandria and Fairfax, VA turns deep south real fast.


Actually, it says the destination was Ashburn, the home of $900,000 McMansions inhabited by people who elect  the likes of Bob Marshall and Ken Cuccinelli to office.

Is he super Muslim?

Mega Muslim?

Can he manifest minarets to strike unbelievers with?


What's scarier is that I've heard through some well researched chain emails, is that there are Muslims that are eleventy-one!!1!11!! Muslim. There's no stopping them...

I wouldn;t call Ashburn "the Boonies" , but smack dead in the middle of Northern Va  hell, if my commuter bus' ridership is any indication, the is a VERY large concentration of Indians/Pakistanis/Sikhs etc in Ashburn.  No what this looks like is a very drunk lady who has been a secret bigot for a very long time, finally letting it out.  The shocked reaction of her companion to her rant  speaks volumes

FormlessOne: MisterRonbo: willfullyobscure: Stereotypes exist for a reason.

[img.fark.net image 850x756]

The reason being, some people are paranoid idiots.

How paranoid is that, given that we now have Christian extremists trying to undermine the government when it comes to everything from education to medicine?


Focus now, we're talking about stereotypes. Would you stereotype all Christians as trying to undermine all of these aspects of government?

And would you say of those who are trying to undermine the government, they operate on stereotypes about Democrats, and about Muslims?

Still want to defend stereotypes as a good thing, and not something the paranoid use to justify their irrational world views?
 
2013-06-19 01:26:35 PM
Thank goodness Fox News and the Republican party are here, to tell us who to be afraid of. Otherwise, we'd be getting into cabs with Muslim drivers and arriving safely at our destination with no incident.

Yeah, they made him wait outside for 50 mins before getting in the car.  They rung up $17 bucks just from having him wait there for them.

Incidentally, that's also part of the reason they started harassing him.

jst3p: McLEAN, Va. (AP) -- For the second time in as many months, a Muslim civil rights group is pursuing criminal charges on behalf of a taxicab driver who was subjected to an anti-Islamic rant caught on tape.
In the most recent case, an Ashburn, Va., woman unleashed a string of expletives and called 911 to report that she was afraid for her life because she said her cabbie, Abdikar Aden of Alexandria, was "very Muslim."
Aden says the woman also poked him repeatedly in the back of his shoulder, though that part of the confrontation was not captured in a recording provided to The Associated Press.


Criminal charges because she said some mean things about you? I think she is an idiot but that isn't a crime.

Don't like Muslims or people of any religion from North Africa/Middle East/Indian region? Paranoid and stupid? Don't take a cab!


I had a nanny like this.  Wanted me to get up at 4 in the morning, during the workweek, to go get her at the airport.  She didnt want to take a flight late sunday night and I pick her up at midnight, becuase well, that would mean less family time for her.

I mentioned she can get a cab, and it was like I had suggested she sell herself or something.
Paranoia about how she doesnt know the cab driver and what he will do.

Elegy: The new breed of extremist libertarian college students is what really shocks me. In my 8 years in the higher education system, I met 3 avowed Marxists, 2 of them at the graduate level.

The number of extreme libertarians I met, especially among the younger generation, was almost beyond counting.

I would always ask those kids if they were ok with disbanding the government and giving corporations sovereign powers like taxation, imminent domain, and judicial authority (a la Reedy Creek Improvement District). They almost universally said "yes" without thought.



Where on earth did you go to school?!

From Downtown DC to Ashburn is about 35 miles, there was $20 on the meter when they started  because she made him wait for an hour before riding, and the two toll roads you have to drive to get her home, the Dulles Toll Road and the Greenway  cost $2.and $5.50 respectively.  So she got off pretty cheap

20 miles.   plus the wait fee.

That being said.. I dont know who takes cabs around there, except to get to the airport.
Everyone else would just hop in their Lexus, if not BMW or better, and go to the Grille and back,
likely taking the $5 private toll road because roads with stoplights are for plebes.

I know. That's part of my point. We reeeeally don't want laws like that on the books.

Besides, think of the negative consequences of anti-butthurt laws on the entertainment/comedy industry. With that sort of suppression, we'd be just as unfunny as the rest of the world.
 
2013-06-19 01:34:37 PM
So can somebody explain the difference between the driver being Muslim and "very muslim?" Clearly this is important as he wasn't just muslim bur "very muslim."

Also, why does he need to save up money for a year before blowing himself up?

So many questions.

2/10


That's a little high, more like 0.5/10.  Half a point due to getting their current iteration of the religion correct.  What most people don't even bother to learn is that during the dark and middle ages, when christian Europe was dancing around with swords and killing mass quantities of the populace, the muslim nations were the largest centers of learning on the planet.  Their literacy rates were astounding for the time.  Even the European nobility was rarely literate on a functional level.  Granted, both sides had their unwashed masses, and women on both sides were little more than property, but given that, the advances in the sciences and math were astounding.

jaytkay: Reminds me of Annie Jacobsen, the twunt who whipped up hysteria and outrage among right-wingers with her hair-raising story about n commercial flight with several Syrian musicians.

Conservative broadcast her screed as some kind of action-hero survival story.

Normal people know it from Snopes .


The Snopes claim was debunked; anonymous former air marshals who read the news articles confirmed that the actions of the Syrian musicians seemed like a dry run, thus proving the incident to be a dry run.
