My 17.5 readers (up from 3.5...) have over the past few months (since I "snapped" in November after the Paris Bataclan attacks) heard me mention rather frequently a Jihad Watch regular named "Angemon" (whom I have dubbed the "Energizer Bunny") and his high-school-clique-cum-lynch-mob of Jihad Watch friends I have christened the "Rabbit Pack" (including an illustrious peanut gallery of regulars, such as gravenimage, Mirren, Wellington, PRCS, Western Canadian, dumbledoresarmy, JayBoo, Philip Jihadski (aka "Joe Blow"); et al.).  As with this very paragraph here, I have always tried to provide links to previous essays where I flesh out what these names mean and why I complain about them.

This time, I thought I'd provide a more thorough demonstration of what I had to put up with for years as an active Jihad Watch commenter -- by means of a link to a Jihad Watch comments thread back in October of 2015 that typifies the kind of insulting nonsense they leveled against me many a time.  One can begin with this comment of mine, then once there, follow downwards as you see first "PRCS" respond obtusely to me, followed by the Rabbit Pack's resident Policeman, "Angemon", followed by more of the peanut gallery.

After that, the reader can go back above that point in that comments thread to another exchange -- that began between me and "Wellington" but soon morphed, as usual, into the peanut gallery weighing in (with, of course, the Energizer Bunny "Angemon" leading the charge by zooming in to pop up and pester me).

These two exchanges not only exemplify the obtuseness and the sophomoric cliquishness of the Rabbit Pack; far more importantly, they reflect their grievously stubborn defense of a soft approach to the problem of Muslims.

Hesperado,

As I see it, there are only three reasons to support Donald Trump. Now, one of those reasons is looking less solid by the day.

After The Donald announced in December 8, 2015 his proposed a ban on all Muslims entering the country – a sensible response to the horrifying attack by Muslim mass murderers in San Bernardino just six days earlier - it was no more than a week or two before he began to soften his stance.

Back in May, Mr. Trump met the former secretary of state Henry Kissinger who had publicly criticized Trump’s position on Muslims and Islam. Since then, Trump has been ever quieter on the question of the Islamic problem. Hopeful people may believe that Trump is merely being circumspect and politic. However, I worry, and I wonder if his attention is lacking and that his words were only meant to assuage the way a sales clerk’s might.

Then, last night at the Republican convention, there was the ludicrous spectacle of Sajid Tarar giving his Islamic “blessing” to the Trump candidacy. Sajid, according to quranicnames.com, means “one who prostrates.” Well, what we have here is an offering of the Islamo-backside in a gesture of condescension and contempt. It is yet another smiling, mendacious, better-cop resident of Musloidistan farting up some more Islamic gas.

I’m less and less sure that Mr. Trump is reliable when it comes to threat of Islamization.

As you have pointed out so well, the Counter-Jihad is the gang that can’t shoot straight’; but I’m afraid that the current crop of silly Republicans along with their counterpart Clintonistas is a gang that cannot, and worse, will not shoot at all.

Look at the traditional English police, then look at the atypical 'English' crowd:

It looks like you missed my essay I wrote back in May -- "Neither a flip nor a flop"

P.S. to Yorick,

I don't think Trump is anywhere near Counter-Jihad enough, nor do I expect he will make great strides. He's just 1) significantly better than anyone else in American politics on this issue; and 2) he shows signs of that strange phenomenon in the mainstream -- an actually open mind capable of change based upon new data (coupled with a willingness to solicit new data from sources outside the Box).
