I’ve Been Caught Correcting a Mistake
I always love waking up and seeing another stupid fecal storm created by the right wing blogosphere over something I wrote.
This time they’ve caught me red-handed! editing an old post about Imam Feisal Rauf to remove the description “Islamic supremacist.” Apparently this proves I was trying to “hide” something, or that I’m a hypocrite, or that I’m being paid by secret forces, or something. (It must be nice to have so much free time that you can hunt through every word of years-old LGF posts, looking for a gotcha.)
Well, it’s true. Gasp. I did remove the words “Islamic supremacist” from this post.
And the reason I removed those words is simple — because I was mistaken. I jumped to conclusions, based on bad information from untrustworthy sources like Robert Spencer, and when I came across that post recently, I corrected it so that it wouldn’t be used as some kind of bogus ammunition in this controversy. As far as I’ve been able to tell, after reading quite a few articles he’s written, Imam Feisal Rauf is not an Islamic supremacist. I didn’t want anyone to get that impression from something I wrote, so I fixed my mistake.
And of course, they attack me for that. (These people are idiots.)
