Lame Excuse of the Week

Robert Spencer is mixing it up with Michael J. Totten and Mary Madigan at Totten’s pad.

Totten asks Spencer a good question about his announced participation in the “Pro-Koln” conference — a question I’ve brought up as well:

If the nutjobs in Cologne did nothing but invite Pamela, why did they say she agreed to attend? If some fascistic or quasi-fascistic party did that to me, I would be extremely pissed off about it, and I wouldn’t go after Charles Johnson for noting it. I’d expect to be pilloried by my colleagues for something like that, but I would take it out on the conference organizers rather than those who quite properly sounded an alarm.

Indeed. Spencer’s answer, which he posted for the first time in Totten’s comments:

This is what happens when you only know one part of the story. There are things that went on in regard to that conference that are not going to be made public. Charles Johnson doesn’t know them, and he filled in the gaps in what he did know, as you are doing now, by making a number of erroneous assumptions and false conclusions. The bottom line is this: the line that Johnson has pursued, that Pamela and I are sympathizing with fascists, or “enabling” fascists, is not based on a shred of actual evidence. Rather, it is all surmise, jumping to conclusions, and guilt by association.

To paraphrase: “That information is classified Top Sekrit! You’re wrong, wrong, wrong, but I can’t tell you why, on pain of something or other… and Charles Johnson is eeeevvillll…”

Don’t miss Mary Madigan’s (“maryatexitzero”) comments in the thread, either.
