So he’s trying to defeat Islamic fundamentalists by promoting creationism…which is something Islamic fundamentalists support…my brain hurts…

re: #2 Ace-o-aces

Baby steps baby steps.

I’ve read a lot of articles that try to fight Islamic fundamentalism by supporting antisemitism. The argument, for instance, can go “we have to teach science and other modern ideas in schools otherwise we’ll never be able to beat the Jews!”

In a similar pattern, Iran tries to convince Sunnis to stop hating Shiites by promoting both genocidal antisemitism (yes the rhetoric is genocidal) and terror - and THAT works. That works through Iranian rhetoric, through the sermons they have clerics preach and through their proxy fascist terror gang, Hezbollah. The idea is that if they show that they hate Jews just as much as Sunnis and will work to kill them, then they must be alright guys. And so, for instance, when Hebollah attacks Israel, they gain popularity among Sunis, and the status if Shiites goes up in Suni culture.


Cleaving ever more strongly to ONE aspect of traditional culture in order to loosen another is a typical pattern.

Another odd one, a kind of reversal, Hezbollah has been promoting sexual freedom among Shiites too (not freedom from sexism, but freedom for both men and women to have sex through virtual temporary marriages). They promote oppression in all other things - but they have this one outlet.

I just wanted to say, when the automatic tag generator suggested “Voluptuous Ed McMahons” it was too good to pass up.

The women shown above look suspiciously like Fox News Barbie Dolls - -no?

Complete with only one brunette, long-hair and big smile!

It would nice if the article discussed how many people are actually watching the network. Hard to know how seriously to take it otherwise.
