I think Pam has posted the same press release on her site. It looks like she's made nice with the EDL and is openly supporting them again. The first comment objects to the EDL but everybody else seems fine with it so far.

Peter Hitchens and Pat Buchanan have laid the intelectual framework for that. Essentially they claim Hitler was spiffy and the allies mistreated him until he was forced to go apeshit and take over Europe. They claim it was all our fault in the first place.

Of course they have. But because the EDL are "anti Islamism" they're okay with Spencer and Geller.

Ah yes, a war to protect our rights. Thankfully we have these freedom fighters watching over us. Just like the Germans needed protection from the Jews.

These people have succumbed to a putrid ideology and are drunk with their notoriety in espousing it, exploiting others with anger lacking outlet.

But these guys, with their reich salutes, are celebrating the very people who tried, really hard, to kill their (the EDL) grandparents. AND LOST.

Wow, look at that. Yes, the logo definitely is reminiscent of the neo-Nazi Odin's Cross.

That's the hate symbol that so many right wingers refused to believe was a hate symbol when all this first began being an issue at LGF -- despite the fact that it's openly used by white supremacists all over the world.

Remember when we had people here frantically trying to deny the meaning of that symbol? Some of those hateful creeps are the same ones who now stalk me relentlessly around the Internet.

Barring that, I deeply, deeply, hope they meant it as a simple cross, although the problems start to mount up steeply at that point, like the foothills of Everest they mount up.

re: #17 Charles Johnson

The SION logo incorporates the reverse of the NATO logo (the blue/black portion of the logo is swapped with the white/light portion) at the center of the crossed O. That they've then crossed it in the middle of the O does make it appear as an Odin's cross, which is more than a bit ironic (seeing how NATO was founded to deal with the Soviet threat after WWII when the Allies came together to beat the Nazis who used the Odin's cross as one of their symbols).

Pamela Geller's last rant in defense of the SIOA/E and the presence of the EDL and the Nazi salutes:

The libel blogger sanctions the evil of this century's nazis by demonizing the free men fighting the scourge of Jew hate, muhammadanism, sharia law and Islamic supremacism. There were no nazi salutes, just lizard libelous lies.

Of course a Google image search reveals otherwise and the neo-Nazi element within the EDL has been well reported.

37 SanFranciscoZionist  Tue, Jun 12, 2012 10:21:52am

The trouble people like Pam seem to have is an inability to multi-task. Once they get the 'global jihad' concept into their heads, they divide the world neatly into the good guys and the bad guys. If you agree with them about global jihad, you, by definition, cannot be the bad guys, so all sorts of scum like the EDL get swept into good favor, and anything against them won't be believed, or will be excused.

If you disagree with them, even to a point, about global jihad (I believe it's out there, just not, for example, that every Muslim in the world is a witting or unwitting agent of it, that the Muslim Brotherhood has taken over the LAPD, or that eating a halal turkey is a victory for the caliphate), you become the enemy, and anything good, sane, or upstanding you may do is for naught, because, you know, jihadis under the bed.

There is, in fact, an exact left-wing equivalent of this nightmare behavior, which I saw in action first. This does not make the right-wing version any less bizarre looking.

I also know a lady who went from the extreme left-wing version of this to the extreme right-wing version of this in about two years flat. She says the scales have dropped from her eyes. I think she's changed her worldview without actually learning to do critical thinking.

re: #37 SanFranciscoZionist

I think it goes to seeing the world in black and white, and that it's so much easier to view things through a yes/no blinders worldview than to understand that the world is a whole lot more complex than that.

Under Geller's reasoning, President Bush was inadequate because he didn't treat all Muslims as the enemy, even as the President was going after the Islamic terror groups responsible for the 9/11 attacks.

Likewise, besides her batshit crazy theory that Obama is Malcolm X's love child (and a closet Muslim to boot), ignores the fact that President Obama has carried ahead with the war against Islamic terrorists, up to and including taking out OBL, Awlaki, and countless other al Qaeda and affiliated terrorists.

But because the President (or any of us) do not think that all Muslims are the enemy, we're somehow traitors to everyone else.

Add to that her willful and purposeful alliance/affiliation with the EDL and their white supremacist/neo Nazi background, and you've got someone whose put together a truly misguided endeavor.

Rather than focusing on the real injustices here, they've decided that a clash of civilizations is warranted, and ignoring that the white supremacists and neo Nazis likely see her as little more than a useful idiot for their own purposes (which likely include using her to legitimize their own standing - eg. hey if a Jew can stand with us, we can't be all that bad).

Gingrich: ‘Yes,’ Romney’s Policies Will Lead To ‘Fewer Teachers’

During an interview with CNN’s John King on Monday evening, Romney campaign surrogate Newt Gingrich defended Mitt Romney’s resistance to hiring “more firemen, more policemen, more teachers” and admitted that the former Massachusetts governor’s policy would lead to less teachers in the classroom:

KING: The president says use federal dollars to help. Governor Romney says no. [...]

GINGRICH: We have to come to grips with how big the challenge is, and does that mean there will be fewer teachers? The honest answer is yes. Does it mean that you’re not going to get quite the same pension plan people have been getting? The honest answer is yes. President Obama may say well, we can borrow our way out of that decision. I don’t think the American people agree with him.

White House Official Says Drug Addiction Is A Public Health Issue, Not A Crime

Gil Kerlikowske, President Obama’s top adviser on drug policy and director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, gave a speech yesterday arguing for the treatment of drug addiction as a public health issue, not a crime. “Drug addiction is not a moral failing on the part of the individual, but a chronic disease of the brain that can be treated,” said the White House drug czar. Kerlikowske argued that the paradigmatic shift in policy focus is necessary because an emphasis primarily on incarceration and the criminal status of drug users fails to treat the problem by disregarding prevention, treatment, and recovery:

But how would we support our growing private prison industry if we can't throw someone in jail for 10 years over an ounce of weed?

Of course, Willard then goes on Fox this morning and splits hairs over his comments, calling it "absurd" to accuse him of wanting fewer teachers. Why? Well, because the federal government doesn't employ them, so how can he fire them?

Remind me again, who is the one who's "out of touch"?

Voting for Willard is what's absurd not calling him out on what he actually says. Sorry Mitt, you insinuated that hiring more teachers, cops, and firefighters was big government. Either explain what the hell you mean or flip flop like you always do when confronted with a difficult issue.

Iran claims designing nuclear submarine

Iran has taken "initial steps" to design its first nuclear-powered submarine, a deputy navy commander claimed in an interview with the Fars news agency published on Tuesday.

"Initial steps to design and build nuclear submarine propulsion systems have begun," Admiral Abbas Zamini, the technical deputy navy chief, told the agency.

"All countries have the right to use peaceful nuclear technology, including for the propulsion system of its vessels," he said.

Iran's navy "needs the (nuclear-powered) propulsion system to succeed in realising very long-distance operations."

He did not provide further details.

Heh. I wonder if will look like this masterpiece?

A kid I'm tutoring tried to use Meatloaf's "I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)" as an example of a paradox.

How the hell does a 14 year old kid from Harlem even learn about Meatloaf?

Just like he never fired that guy Grenell. He just made it so uncomfortable for him to work in the campaign, he quit on his own.

Passive aggressive much?

Come now, you're not using the correct newspeak term. Grenell "self-deported" himself from the Romney staff.

"Progressive" is a positive term. Stalin was a socially conservative anti-progressive.

Very restrictive anti-abortion and birth control laws and policies on gays that are more closer to the religious right than President Obama and the left, yes?

re: #72 NJDhockeyfan

Probably a whole lot worse. They've had problems coming up with minisubs that could rival the drug lord subs, let alone anything bigger or more complex, like a nuclear powered submarine.

The Iranians have never built a full-sized diesel electric submarine but have decided to leapfrog directly into a nuclear powered submarine, even though a diesel sub would be more than adequate in the Persian Gulf's littoral waters. Nuclear sub would mean such cost that it makes little sense to pursue that at a time when they're already facing all kinds of sanctions on dual use materials.

Then, there's the real fallout if the sub fails.

Judging by the photo-shopped pictures and fake videos they have released about their missile program, the sub photos will be amazing to see.

The Bee gives a link to the logo, but doesn't show it. Is it just me, or does that have a hint of Odin's Cross built in? Actually, more than a hint.

I think not, WW. I see the NATO symbol in that cross. It makes a bit of sense for a US-Euro derpfest.

YouTube. Kids who are interested can learn a lot about music they wouldn't have been exposed to in another generation. And the current kiddos like classics.
