Hate or satire? The usual suspects cry wolf...again

This nasty anti-Muslim flyer was found all over the campus of George Washington State University. It was quickly removed with sound condemnations from all corners. Predictably, the usual suspects(judeofascists and useful shabbat goys) were "horrified" at its contents, despite pushing those very same stereotypes day in and day out. I'm sure they just looove Muslims, and wouldn't want you to think otherwise. Damage control, anyone? What got my attention is that the pro-zionist terrorist blog LGF claims that a Muslim is behind this(like pretty much anything in their crackpot world view). Evidence? "Uh.... cause we said so." The spineless rodents can't get by without lying.
What you'll also notice is they provide a very low resolution scan(rectified by yours truly, click on it to see it upclose) of the flyer. This is intentional, because it obscures the detail at the bottom which states "Brought to you by Students for Conservativo-Fascism Awareness." Hmmmm, satire anybody? How is this different from carting around neocon charlatans pretending to be Muslims as part of an anti-muslim propaganda event? Oh, but there is a difference. The flyer makes it clear its making a mockery of the bigots who want you to think that they are authentic and genuine.

My comments are in red on this article from the Washington Post.

Posters appeared all over the George Washington University campus yesterday morning blaring the message: "HATE MUSLIMS? SO DO WE!!!"

Campus police moved quickly to remove the fliers, university leaders began investigating how they got there and student groups met last night to deplore the posters, which had a photo of an Arab and description of "typical Muslim" features such as "suicide vest," "hidden AK-47" and "peg-leg for smuggling children and heroin."(Don't forget the laser beams from their eyes)

The posters managed to upset just about everyone on campus: Muslim students, other religious groups and conservatives who are hosting "Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week" later this month. Some questioned whether they were mocking the conservatives, pointing to fine print at the bottom -- "Brought to you by Students for Conservativo-Fascism Awareness" -- and a postscript recommending a BBC video on the politics of fear.

Any subtleties were lost under the gigantic headline, though.(Ignored you mean)

"I was just really shocked that this sort of hatred exists on our campus," said Najah El Bash, a sophomore from New York who is one of the leaders of the GWU Muslim Students Association. "You never think this would come so close to home, from people you're in classes with. . . . It's scary." It had to be well-planned, she said, for so many posters to go up so quickly.

GWU President Steven Knapp said in a statement last night, "There is no place for expressions of hatred on our campus." He called the fliers reprehensible and said students of different faiths will be gathering this week for a community meal with Muslims during Ramadan. "This event speaks to our university's commitment to global cultural understanding and respect."


The poster describes "typical" Muslims and says, "To find out more, come to ISLAMO-FASCISM AWARENESS WEEK!!! For more information, contact the GWU Young America's Foundation."

Sergio Gor, a senior from Los Angeles who is the president of that group, said he was horrified when he heard about the fliers. "We did not put up those posters," he said. "Someone took our name and used it. It was hateful."(And your anti-Muslim event isn't hateful? Or is it only hatred when your bigotry is the target of mockery? Whatever happened to freedom of speech?!)

"We're a conservative group on campus," he said. "We promote liberty and freedom, not bigotry and hatred."( translation : trust fund wingnuts and future Ann Coulters) Gor and others in the group, which has hosted such speakers on campus as Newt Gingrich and John Ashcroft, were to meet last night with the Muslim Students Association and Jewish student leaders to issue a joint statement.(Ashcroft and the Grinch, perfect examples of liberty and freedom)

The Young America's Foundation will host Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week, an event organized by two national conservative groups. Gor said writer David Horowitz will speak, "The Path to 9/11," a TV mini-series, will be shown, and there will be a panel discussion featuring people who escaped the regime in Iran. "One gal got flogged 300 times for wearing nail polish," he said.( Oh yeah..I believe that(you're not going to live to talk about 300 lashes, or you're some green card seeking Iranian communist eager to make a quick buck) ...given that woman all the over the Middle East wear nail polish and even...gasp..makeup. This lying bastard is making it up as he goes along. Perhaps it has something to do with pushing for war against Iran? )

"It's a complete misunderstanding," he said. "I don't know how you can take that and turn it into, 'We hate Muslims.' We don't. We have Muslims involved in our organizations."( Sure you do, I bet your parents are Muslims too.)

Patrick Coyle, vice president of the Young America's Foundation, which is based in Herndon and sponsors conservative speakers at campuses nationwide, said "it's clear when you look at the flier that this is an obvious attack from the left."(Really? You think? This guy is a genius. Real MENSA material, folks)

"It shows how desperate they become to try to silence debate on campus," he said. The video that the flier urges people to watch, "The Power of Nightmares," is an attack on the upcoming event, he said.(silence debate? Is that why neocons like Horowitz and Pipes set up "Campus Watch" to intimidate and silence those who don't think zionism is the best thing since sliced bread? To spy on academics and students and make detailed dossiers of their views? BS)

And don't forget about Judeofascist Awareness Week(shameless plug).
