ISIS is mad about the Crusades

One of the biggest lies told by Progressive is that Islamists are mad about the Crusades. What is often ignored is that the Crusades was a counter attack against Islamic Imperialism which had knock the The Greco-Roman Christian world into the Dark Ages. At LGF, this version of events is taken as gospel and used to justify the actions of ISIS.

It's the Crusades

Observer Art plays the dishonest moral equivalency card in justifying the actions of ISIS.

    Well that explains it. Islamic terrorism is all because of the Crusades 1000 years ago. Nothing at all to do with teachings in the Koran commanding Muslims to terrorize, conquer, subjugate and enslave wherever they go.

    ObserverArt is a genius. No wonder LGF has gone down the toilet.

  2. Octopus says:

    No, Islamist terror is due to unemployment. Never forget, the poverty of the Muslim-dominated countries is caused by Western capitalist exploitation. Corporations and whatnot.

    Other possible causes: Donald Trump, George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Fox News, serving pork in school lunchrooms, asking women to remove their face-coverings in court and in airports, and Jews. There are some others, but those are the ones I can come up with off the top of my head. The Crusades are way down the list, btw. Can’t expect a basement-dwelling LGF’er to keep up with everything.

    NOT the cause of Islamist terror: Islamist tenets, contained in the Koran, calling for all manner of violent horror against infidels. Quoted by Islamist-firebrands constantly, and always on their websites and marching posters, but pay no attention to this! It’s the fault of the West. Never forget that.

    Emory University Offers ‘Emergency Counseling’ After ‘Triggering’ Donald Trump Chalking
    by Alex Griswold | 2:44 pm, March 23rd, 2016

    A group of students at Emory University led a campus-wide protest after someone wrote ‘Donald Trump 2016’ in chalk across campus, leading the university to provide “emergency counseling” sessions in response.

    According to student paper The Emory Wheel, the triggered students protested outside the administration building chanting, “You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!”

    “I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe,” one female student said. “But this man is being supported by students on our campus and our administration shows that they, by their silence, support it as well … I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school.”

    The university quickly responded in an email: “By nature of the fact that for a significant portion of our student population, the messages represent particularly bigoted opinions, policies, and rhetoric directed at populations represented at Emory University, we would like to express our concern regarding the values espoused by the messages displayed, and our sympathy for the pain experienced by members of our community.”

    “It is clear to us that these statements are triggering for many of you,” they continued. “As a result, both College Council and the Student Government Association pledge to stand in solidarity with those communities who feel threatened by this incident and to help navigate the student body through it and the environment of distrust and unease it has created.”

    When meeting with students, Emory administrators promised to review footage from security cameras to try and identify the rogue Trump fan and put them through the “conduct violation process.”

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!1!

    PS — I wondered what the parents of these not-so-special snowflakes were paying for the privilege (trigger-word!) of turning their brats into coddled-infants. I’m glad it’s a lot. 😆

    Tuition and Fees
    Billed Costs Emory College
    Tuition $45,700
    Fees $614
    Housing $7,720
    Food $5,410

    Almost $60K/yr, me hearties. To create the generation that will have to face ISIS in our streets, and clean up after the socialist experiment goes boom. Good luck with that!

    I was watching “My 600-lb. Life” yesterday – “Chuck’s Story” – thinking finally he was getting his big break – eh, not Chuck.

    However, when the Dude got down to a little over 400 lbs., I figured that was probably the size Fatass must be by now.

    Sad. Fatso, sad.
    Your site used to have Iowahawk, who was a genius.
    Now you have ObserverArt – who is anything but.

  5. pineapple says:

    Poor Fatso, nobody cares.

    • Octopus says:

      “I for one”….actually, if we’re going by weight, you’re going to count as two, maybe three.

    • Arachne says:

      Actually, they really don’t. The only one of note who either retweeted him or replied to him was Karoli, whose Crooks and Liars is as much a forgotten website as Fartballs. Believe me, the Trumpkins are quick on the uptake when someone goes after their savior. And no one, but no one, even gives a shit what Lardass the Little Green Loser thinks.

    • Because olo says:

      I just unfollowed my first follow after she retweeted a Holocaust denial site. When you have 100s or 1000s, it’s not hard to have a few Nazis and Klansmen and p0rn sites mixed in there by accident.

      • Octopus says:

        Yes…the p0rn sites are purely by accident. How do they sneak in there? 😯

        • Because olo says:

          They follow you.

          • Octopus says:

            I get a boner jes’ thinkin’ on it. All those creamy co-eds…NO! Get thee behind me, Satan! Hey, what are you doing back there? AAIIEEEEEE!! (the barbed-cock of Satan is no picnic, kids)

  6. And wave after wave of violence by the Paleostinians is because of some real estate. They have a gripe that justifies mass murder everywhere. In the Philipines, in the Balkans, in Pakistan, in Afghanistan, in Malaysia, in Mali, Bande Acheh, in Saudi Arabia, in Egypt, in Nigeria, in Somalia, in Kenya, In America, in France, in London, in Russia, in Spain, in Belgium, in Tunisia, etc…

    And when the non-Muslims retaliate against their dumb asses they use THAT as a reason for violence. If you’re Muslim you don’t need much reason.

    This website can barely keep.

    And yet InObservant Art is a deluded leftard who evidently will never get it.

    • Arachne says:

      But he crushes debate. Further proof that he needs a dictionary.

    • pineapple says:

      When Fatso uses some variation of “fuck” and then blocks, it’s a right-winger.

      When he uses some variation of “idiot” or “moron” it’s a fellow libtard, and he may or may not block.

      When a user (whether right or left) has a high follower count he will not block. Instead of getting into a Twitter argument (which he always loses), he’ll just drag the offending tweet to his “safe space” (LGF). He expects that some of his tiny brain lapdogs will go be assholes in his stead.

      • Arachne says:

        If you block the user, you don’t get to see their tweets. Oddly, I can see Fatass’s tweets if I go in through this site. Bear in mind, Fatso blocked me without my ever having tweeted him. This was part of the “reply” trap. One of his shitstains or socks would tweet in reply to something i said and include Fatso in the tweet. Then if and when I replied, he would be included and would then whine to Twitter that he was being harassed by someone he had blocked. In return, I said, fine by me, Sugar, I don’t even want to accidentally get something from you and blocked him back.

        I got screenshots of one incident at one time. An “egg” account responded to a tweet I sent out, and included Fatso’s Twitter address. Said “egg” somehow had accumulated 10 followers and had not tweeted anything except the one tweet to me. ONE of those followers was Fatso. When I replied, I deleted Fatso from the thread and said “Nice try, honey! Bye Now!”

        I then sent a series of screenshots to Twitter, using an email address for an employee, and showed her what I’d uncovered. That Johnson was indeed using accounts to harass people. Johnson doesn’t follow that many people when compared with his follower count – why would he follow an EGG that hasn’t said anything? Because the EGG followed him? Hardly.

        I also sent a link to our little flower account that was suspended without ever sending a single tweet. That aggressive following excuse was bullshit. How are you supposed to be seeing any tweets to read if you don’t start doing a lot of following right away?

  8. I just saw this on Daily Mail. InObservant Art should view this and shut his pindick equivocating assed mouth and siddown. Evil is evil.

    Leftists. Their idea of security is to simply accept having none. Even inviting hatred and violent groups.

    In the wake of the disaster, the worst terror attack ever to hit Belgium, the country’s interior and justice ministers both offered to resign today.

    Jan Jambon and Koen Geens handed their resignations to prime minister Charles Michel, but the premier asked to two men to continue in their posts.

    The ministers’ offer to quit is believed to be linked to the apparent security failings which allowed the bombers to stay on the streets despite evidence linking them to violent extremism.

    It emerged today that Ibrahim El Bakraoui was twice deported from Turkey last year, but was set free by European authorities even though they were told by their Turkish counterparts that he could present a terror threat.

    • swamprat says:

      Yes, after reading all the anti-muslim articles in Little Green Footballs, breivik felt betrayed when Charles backed off from the absolute, full racist hatred he seemed willing to incite.
      Anyone can go to the “wingularity” cheetos icon at this site and search for all the comments listed under “religion of” “savages” “Palestinians” and see the articles, the same articles breivik saw. Charles was happy to point out the rabid attacks from Islam, information not acknowledged by a large portion of the media at the time. The atrocities were horrific and the studious avoidance from the media was maddening. Charles was right to shine a light on those activities and right to point out the hypocrisy of the media and right to hold off from absolute unreasoning, full blown hatred of each and every muslim no matter what they thought.

      But he knows good and well Breivik saw his articles and that his influence probably greater than Pam Geller’s.
      When people spoke (against the tide) in favor of moderation, charles did not rush to their defense.(trust me) He always stopped short of calling for outright expulsion, confinement or illegal retaliations.

      But he knows he is not being intellectually honest about his past or his history.

      I hope this gets read by his current commenters and followers.

      I loved “The Garry Shandling Show,” and enjoyed his comedy back in the ’80’s. Another very fine performer goes away. He had a massive heart-attack, which I’m sure isn’t fun, but at least it’s quick.

      Trump is stupid for the way he is attacking Cruz though…… if he gets the nod we’ll see if a few months will be enough for him to bring back the conservatives he’s alienated..

      Trump has been such an asshole towards Cruz he has probably lost a huge share of voters that he will have needed to win.

      At this point Cruz may be the better choice. Head to head Cruz is polling better against Shillary than Trump is. Trump vs Shillary would be more enjoyable however.

I mean, the guy has been through major bankruptcy and personal turmoil, and come out smiling and richer than ever. Parallels could be drawn, between the state of this country now, and the state of Trump’s loan-ridden empire back in his “crazy days.” Not sure they would be valid parallels, but what is valid anymore?

    Something to lighten the somber mood a bit:

    A fleeing Taliban terrorist, desperate for water, was plodding through
    the Afghan desert when he saw something far off in the distance.

    Hoping to find water, he hurried toward the mirage, only to find a
    very frail little old Jewish man standing at a small makeshift display
    rack – selling ties.

    The Taliban terrorist asked, “Do you have water?”

    The Jewish man replied, “I have no water. Would you like to buy a tie?
    They are only $5.”

    The Taliban shouted hysterically, “Idiot Infidel! I do not need such
    an over-priced western adornment – I spit on your ties. I need water!”

    “Sorry, I have none – just ties – pure silk – and only $5.”

    “Pahh! A curse on your ties, I should wrap one around your scrawny
    little neck and choke the life out of you but… I must conserve my
    energy and find water!”

    “Okay,” said the little old Jewish man, “It does not matter that you
    do not want to buy a tie from me or that you hate me, threaten my life
    and call me infidel. I will show you that I am bigger than any of
    that. If you continue over that hill to the east for about two miles,
    you will find a restaurant. It has the finest food and all the
    ice-cold water you need… Go In Peace.”

    Cursing him again, the desperate Taliban staggered away over the hill.

    Several hours later he crawled back, almost dead and gasped…

    “They won’t let me in without a tie!”

        Back in the mists of time I saw ELP at The Wembly Empire Pool. Cannot remember the exact date but I think it was the 19th April 1974. The start of the “Works” tour. (they were there 18th, 19th, 20th and I know it was not the first night…)

        Back in England in my treasured belongings is a ticket stub from that concert.. One day I must get shipped to my new home in the USA.

        Why is that special?

        It was printed Emmerson Lake and Palmer.

        Charles, been there, done that….

  36. Let’s see if I understand this; Terror has nothing to do with Islam, but it is a justified response from Muslims to Christian actions during the Crusades.

    OK.

    The Republican Fear is taxes.
    The Democratic Fear is authoritarianism.

    No, the Democratic Fear is Less Dependence On Government

    Looks like everyone has quit the board. Well, we had a good run. Nothing lasts forever. 😉

    I was thinking about the cancer-survivors and ongoing battlers we know here, and I received this vacation-pic from my bratty little brother and his wife. He’s a Navy-vet and ER-doc, and she’s been through the life-wringer with three problem-pregnancies, the last of which ended in a very sudden, sad death of a 3-year-old, and then she had a problem-free girl, who is now 10, and then she had breast-cancer, from which she has just emerged cancer-free. My brother used to break all my stuff, and steal my paperboy-change, and I should still kick his butt for that, but she was always funny and called everyone on their bullshit. I’m just happy to see them happy, and looking good.

      i have not quit. I have a different life now.

      As an example, for two hours this afternoon I was out in the countryside having a nice walk. Spent much of that time talking to turtles. No matter what you say to them they just stare at you and never reply. Not like cats and dogs, talk to them and even though they may not understand what you are saying they bark and meow back (um not both, the dogs tend to bark and the cats meow) and they respond.

      The turtles I chatted with just floated aimlessly and didn’t interact with me at all. Not a good bonding experience and I returned home depressed and feeling a deep sense of failure in my attempt to connect with nature.

      Now I feel slightly better. I understand now why my efforts to discuss life, love and politics with a turtle was futile.

      They don’t have ears!

      (yeah I know, they do have ears but just not big floppy ones like the Easter Bunny. However in the interests of telling a story the fact that they do not have obvious ears enhances my fantasy as to the stupidity of trying to have a meaningful conversation with a reptile that to be honest really does not give a fuck about life, love and politics when he lives in a swamp containing alligators)

      (P.S didn’t see any alligators. They probably heard me talking to the turtles and thought “Ain’t going to eat him, he is nuts, not meat)

        You will sleep well after walking that 2.5 mile trail loop only to discover the trail ended with us 2.5 miles from the car and we had to double back.

        • ISTE says:

          Really glad we had GPS and all that fancy smartphone shit. I told you that when we got to the end of the trail it would say on a sign “LOL…. Now you have to walk back 2.5 miles to get to your car suckers. )

    Installing packages on Linux asks some really stupid questions.

    I WANT IT AND IF I DO NOT HAVE ONE THIRD OF A MEGABYTE LEFT THEN THAT IS MY PROBLEM!!!!!!

    Remember Mr Raspberry Pi, you cost $35 and you fit quite easily into the garbage disposal my friend. Just do what I ask…….

      I sing that song to my girl whenever she’s reluctant to get in the kitchen and make me a sammich.

      Works… every… time. 😆

    Rock and Roll trivia question.

    (Inspired by ISTE up thread when he mentioned that Cozy Powell played flute which I didn’t know.)

    Take your time…….. this is a tough one.

    What band did a song called “Aqualung” where one of the instruments played was a flute?
