Lawrence Auster is nuts
Concerning a video created by an anti-Islam civilian, Ann Barnhardt, in which she burns a Koran and among other things also happens to use bacon strips as bookmarks, Lawrence Auster writes:
Unfortunately she mars the exercise by her use of bacon as page markers. As I said regarding the Koran burnings during the earlier Jones affair last September, burning the Koran is a righteous act. Doing it with bacon or bacon fat is disgusting and gratuitously insulting and it lowers our side. I don’t support that. Terry Jones didn’t use bacon when he burned a Koran. Since the estimable Ann Barnhardt was burning the Koran in solidarity with Jones, she should have followed his example and avoided the gratuitous and vulgar insult to Muslims.
What in blazes!!??? She should have "avoided" an "insult to Muslims"? Is Auster out of his freaking mind!!?? Auster thinks he's such a brave soul for being the first and (until recently) only supporter of Terry Jones, the original Koran-burner, and in several postings on his blog Auster has made much of his maverick spirit in this regard contrasted to other conservatives. And now he ruins his moxie by this absurdly idiotic fastidious solicitude to the sensibilities of Muslims. For crying out loud. What the F is wrong with him? (Perhaps I shouldn't be too surprised; after all, it wasn't long ago when Auster worried that my "totalistic" proposal to deport all Muslims would be "violating their dignity and essence as Muslims".)
I urge everyone to use BACON and all pig products (and dog hairs and alcohol and haram hair conditioner and jazz music and dance and public kissing and life and love and everything else good on God's green Earth those Satanic fucks hate) for any protest they may produce against Muslims.
