Well, well. Who will be the brave one to stand up to this Muslim cab driver, who had his throat slashed by a liberal filmmaker trying to start a race war (Michael Enright as a 21st century Charles Manson, but without the unhinged hippy-chick following? Hmm...), who has spoken out...against the Ground Zero Mosque?
I know many people are upset. I didn’t support the mosque at Ground Zero, either,” the Jamaica, Queens, resident said.
Jim Treacher has some fun with this:
What do you know: Sharif don’t like it. Isn’t it amazing how quickly somebody can transform from “heroic survivor of a horrifying hate crime” to “evilmongering right-wing bigotard”?
And what about that second "anti-Muslim hate crime" spurred on by the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin? The bizarre tale of Omar Rivera's anti-Muslim urination turns out to be all wet as well:
In other anti-Muslim crime wave news, we’ve also got a guy named Omar Rivera, who capped off a five-day drunk by wandering into a Queens mosque Wednesday night, flipping people off, and peeing on some prayer rugs. But The Hate Crime of the Century soon, um, petered out:
...The Washington Post was told by the NYPD that Rivera was so drunk that he didn’t even know he was at a mosque, and police say they don’t believe the incident was bias-related. The New York Post has since updated its original story — removing any mention of anti-Muslim slurs. A police source also tells the Post that when found by worshipers, Rivera said “My sister’s dead.”
...The NYPD now confirms to TPM that the incident is not being investigated as bias-related. The NYPD said members of the mosque stated that Rivera did not make biased comments during the incident.
No word on whether Mayor Bloomberg has rescinded his invitation to slashed cabbie Ahmed Sharif to visit City Hall, as our victim now qualifies as a bigot under Bloomie's insane reign. And shouldn't the left-wing media (yeah, you, Charles of LGF, who stated: "I’m sure this has absolutely nothing to do with the non-stop anti-Muslim hate speech pouring out of Fox News, right wing websites, talk radio and shrieking harpy Pamela Geller." Legal Insurrection has more on these opportunistic idiots, and FYI - Pam Geller is a hottie, not a harpy) apologize to the Hispanic community for making out one of their members to be not only anti-Muslim, but even worse, a right-winger? After all, remember what Harry Reid said about Hispanics and Republicans?
Will these lessons take hold on the Left, even the most basic one, to perhaps pause 15 minutes before hurling accusations of "right-wing hate", just to make sure the alleged "haters" are not on your own side?
Unlikely. The left doesn't learn, it only churns forward, unthinkingly, like a thresher through corn, like ignorance through knowledge, like Barack Obama through other people's money, or like...the Southern Poverty Law Center, which ignores evidence like Al Gore in a summer snowstorm, and shrieks that a Wave of Hate Crimes Directed at Muslims Breaks Out!
Tell the SPLC that sound they hear is of America laughing...
