Fark It: Uncle Pim: lol, too easy[www.barenakedislam.com image 500x517]It took me a few seconds to realize that that's his jet.
nmrsnr: mayIFark: However, since he was complaining about Muslims and not Arabs (I doubt he knows the difference), melanin should have nothing to do with it, or the fact that they were not born Muslim (I don't know if they were, or not).None of them were.Kareem Abdul Jabbar: born Ferdinand Lewis Alcindor, Jr., converted in college.Malcolm X: born Malcolm Little, converted in prison.Muhammad Ali: born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr., converted during his boxing career.
nmrsnr: nmrsnr: mayIFark:I should add, that's just FYI, and has no bearing on either their being Muslim, or their contributions to society.
jaytkay: Lemme guess. The Republican is from Grand Rapids.*click link*Ahhh, Grandville. Grand Rapids is too "urban" for him.
HMS_Blinkin: I'm torn. As a Michigander, Dave Agema's attention-whoring and general terrible-ness is embarrassing. But as a compassionate human being, I'm pleased that he's drawing attention to how horrible Republicans are.
vpb: They invented distillation. The word alcohol comes from Arabic.If it wasn't for Muslims there would be no Fark.
Rixel: Fark It: Uncle Pim: lol, too easy[www.barenakedislam.com image 500x517]It took me a few seconds to realize that that's his jet.and 2 gold spittoons! 2!
ZeroCorpse: He's also known for saying pretty awful things about homosexuals and liberals.
ZeroCorpse: jaytkay: Lemme guess. The Republican is from Grand Rapids.*click link*Ahhh, Grandville. Grand Rapids is too "urban" for him.Ha! Yes. I bet he has a real tough time watching all those people as he drives through Lansing to get to the capital.
Darth_Lukecash: That's actually a bit of a lie. The west didn't just suddenly become ignorant during the dark ages. Knowledge gained in ancient times still was retained in major cities. That's just the Protestant Enlightenment propaganda trying to make their time look better.
kidgenius: Marcus Aurelius: Base 10 decimal number system?To be fair, MULTIPLE civilizations across the world had base 10 systems (10 fingers). Some had base 5 and others base 20.But, our numbers as we write them, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0 are called Arabic numerals and greatly help us do math, as opposed to MM + MCCMVXI = ??
What a Muslim contributing to America might look like
monoski: So he is saying that Muslims living in the US are not one of us?//We may need his definition of "us"
FlashHarry: more outreach from the big-tent GOP!
FlashHarry: they - along with some irish monks - pretty much preserved classical learning for us while we were busy painting our faces blue and slaughtering each other during the dark ages.
StopLurkListen: Fark It: StopLurkListen: ArmoksHolyBeard: Well apart from the algebra, zero, and the distillation, what have the bloody Muslims ever done for us?!Apart from astronomy, anatomy, hydrology, coffee, algebra, zero, and distillation, what have the Muslims ever done for us?!Preserved Ancient Greek literature, philosophical (often considered the foundation of Western Democracy) and scientific texts during the Dark Ages?Apart from philosophy, medicine, cartography, astronomy, anatomy, hydrology, coffee, algebra, zero, distillation, and preserving classical history, what have the Muslims ever done for us?!
DemonEater: mrshowrules: Comparing Muslim charity work to Catholic charity work. Maybe the Catholic church wins that one but when it comes to priests/clerics raping children, I have to give the edge to our Muslim friends.In the US, yeah.Overseas, though, Muslim clerics are just perfectly fine with marrying off 10-year old girls and so forth.So pretty much I say wipe out all religion, 'cause they're all bad for children./SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHILDREN
unexplained bacon: [media.mlive.com image 380x290]classy as shiat tooHe got me wondering, what has Dave Agema ever done for usWell in another brilliant Facebook post he called Russia's anti-gay propaganda law is "common sense"http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2014/01/dave_agema_ ru ssian_anti-gay_pr.htmlHis anti-gay marriage remarks, including that gay people "want free medical because they're dying" young due to AIDS,http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2013/12/dave_agemas _f ull_statements_pu.htmlHe was apparently at the Battle of dumbass Duck Show:"Good for them," Agema wrote. "The LGBT Gestapo speech police will not succeed when families like them are Biblically solid. You are in our prayers. May A&E fall into the pit they dug for you. STAND!"http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2013/12/dave_agema_ fi nds_kinship_with.htmlIn 2013, he faced calls to resign from the Republican National Committee after he posted extracts from an article entitled "Everyone Should Know These Statistics On Homosexuals" which claimed homosexuals lived a "filthy lifestyle", were responsible for 50 percent of U.S. murders and that many are pedophileshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Agema/just the sort of fellow you'd expect to be leading the Michigan GOP
Snapper Carr: All right... all right...but apart from surgery, coffee, universities, algebra, optics, the toothbrush, and hospitals what have the Muslims done for us?[i1.ytimg.com image 480x360]
netizencain: vpb: They invented distillation. The word alcohol comes from Arabic.If it wasn't for Muslims there would be no Fark. So you're saying that American Muslims invented distillation? Because that's what the farking article is about... American Muslims.
DarkSoulNoHope: All he wants to do is protect Milhouse from Sharia law.[www.limitstogrowth.org image 402x293]
Great Odins Raven: Well we got to build a big new building in NY because of them. So thats nice.
mrshowrules: A lot of anti-gay, racist, pro-rape threads this week or is it just my impression? Is turning the derp up to 11 really the GOP strategy for the 2014 elections?
CanisNoir: The "Dark Ages" is a mysnomer no longer used by historians because it has a singlular Western Bias. The east was never "dark" and the Eastern Roman Empire continued to flourish during that time period. It's also believed there was still trade and trappings of civilization throughout that time period so it wasn't as "dark" as all that.
