Laobaojun: ciberido: tiiger: The Duffel Blog is great, like a precision guided onion.

I can't speak about the website itself, only the single article I read.  I guess it's good insight into what dumb and hateful people think is funny.  I kinda hope the site isn't normally like that.

Why shouldn't we look at the Taliban with scorn?  Or do you approve of people who rape little boys, treat the livestock better than they treat their daughters, and would murder a woman for learning to read?



Here's the problem with you and the article's author: you're taking vile attributes of a population subset (Talibs) and generalizing it to an entire ethnocultural group (Pashtun Afghani). Your sweeping generalization would be like me working from the fact that many Catholic priests have been accused of molesting children, to saying that all Christians are pedophiles. It's pure bigotry.

The consumption of pork violates halal, a Muslim regulation that also forbids the imbibing of alcohol, personal grooming, societal advancement, and treating women like people.

No, this is the most true thing from the article :)

It's satire in the way that removing a leg with a grenade is surgical precision.

Uhh... you think the Taliban are the only ones with chai boys? I'm guessing you've never set foot in Afghanistan in your entire life.

Boojum2k: I don't know, what race were you thinking when you threw the card?For the record, I don't know of any race that has a halal requirement.


Why don't you name a few groups you consider "races" so that we have a basis for common understanding?

 "Its not racist because XXX isn't a race!" is usually the first red herring bigots throw out to defend their bigotry.

Eh, this part made me chuckle.

When your actual religion is almost a parody of brain-damaged medieval ignorance, satire is difficult.

"Don't these assholes have any idea we're trying to partake in sacred Afghan rituals here," said village elder Mohammed Omri Gul, while caressing and ogling at a seven-year-old boy pouring his tea.

That's for sure the most true thing in the article.

Every day I am utterly disappointed in the sheer number of people who have no ability to judge what is satire. When you tell them you always get the same response "Well, Obama is so evil it COULD be real" or "Well, Bush is so dumb it COULD be real."
