Good news: Scumbag who accused “the Jew” of perpetrating 9/11 was only practicing “satire”

posted at 4:34 pm on September 12, 2007 by Allahpundit

Imagine my embarrassment at having thought this very serious interview about shari’a and 9/11 was serious. As Mark Steyn once said, “Ah, the famous Saudi sense of humor.”

If this absurd excuse sounds familiar somehow, it should.

I thought that’s where that second link was heading. If you’re going to claim sharia should be imposed on the world, don’t make some lame excuse and back down.

Own it man.

They’re playing chess. They know their boundaries. They’re pushing the bubble as much as they can until they know it will pop. Ever so clever, you caliphate mongrels.

MadisonConservative on September 12, 2007 at 4:40 PM

Just another botched joke.

Libertarians and Right-wingers fall back on the 5th Amendment when they do something really really stupid.

Crazy people and Left wingers fall back on the old “I was joking!” excuse.

Charlie Manson was just kidding, you know.

Madison is right, the islamists push but only until they feel heat, then they back down, proving that all we need to do to stop the islamization of the West is simply challenge them. That’s all. And it will cease. But the West is not up to that simple action.

Examples? I’m not sure I understand what you mean.

OT: FOR ALLAH ->

Rosie O’Donnell used to break her own limbs with either a baseball bat or a wooden hanger when she was a child.

Can I get a little sympathy for Rosie????

Andy in Agoura Hills on September 12, 2007 at 4:55 PM

Yeah, just about as funny as flying planes into buildings, right?

Boy, those Islamists really have a sense of humor, don’t they?

One thing islamists understand and respect is strength and power. Like bullies, if you stand up to them and give a good “what fer” they’ll back off.

jdawg on September 12, 2007 at 4:57 PM

Oh man! After all these years … Mein Kampf was just satire!

It’s all clear to me, now.

OhEssYouCowboys on September 12, 2007 at 4:57 PM

It’s revenge for Mohammad cartoons

jdawg on September 12, 2007 at 4:56 PM

Sure, they were just trying to be like Tom Cruise in Top Gun by buzzing the tower but not really hitting it. Just a botched joke gone wrong. Just think of how funny it would’ve been for people to look out their window and see a jumbo jet fly by!

What’s funny is that the lefties always claim it was “satire” or a joke when caught doing something completely unfunny and without satirical value. when right-wingers make an obvious joke, it’s OMG SEE HOW EVIL THEY ARE!!1!!1

Yeah, some sense of humor they got.

Hollowpoint on September 12, 2007 at 5:22 PM

so basically it was a joke with 9/11 as the punch line?

Why did the chicken cross the road? 9/11!
Knock Knock! Who’s there? 9/11!

no…no…still not funny to me. Maybe I’m just too blonde to understand that type of highbrow humor

Keli on September 12, 2007 at 5:24 PM

Go *^&%^&% *&^&% with a (&(^(^)*&&%^ and dont forget to take your )((^&*^ and cram it with walnuts, ugly.

How’s that for satire?

Dash on September 12, 2007 at 5:52 PM

So that’s it? Anytime someone complains about what you say just use the “satire” defense? Why haven’t we used this before?

Great! So now whenever I want to nuke something … I can just claim satire!

darwin on September 12, 2007 at 5:59 PM

Can I get a little sympathy for Rosie????

Which’ll wear out faster: the race card or the satire card?

Yeah, enjoy that lively thread where I and 2 others get called disgusting pigs ‘cos we have no sympathy for Rosie. Fun was had by all. :/

tickleddragon on September 12, 2007 at 7:45 PM

Can’t see the video…and I missed it the first time. Darn it.

tickleddragon on September 12, 2007 at 7:47 PM

He could’ve started with “knock knock” and avoided all this…

I just thought the whole thing was an excuse to talk to the Muslim hottie, and then bully the little guy to score points. I think he’s looking for a wife.

sonnyspats1 on September 12, 2007 at 8:42 PM

You silly Hot Air readers. It’s the Jews’ fault that you all don’t understand when it’s satire!

Nethicus on September 12, 2007 at 8:46 PM

A, I watched the video and I didn’t get a satirical sense of it at all so I think its a load of crap CYA.

B, Imus thought using ho’s and b*tches in reference to college girls was hilarious and was sent through a spanking gauntlet before being fired.

Maybe the good Rev. Sharpton will step here too and defend the just grievance of the Jews, from this offensive video?

If the good Rev. wants credibility to defend other ethnic groups then he needs to afford that defense here too. Right?
