CAIR comes clean



  • CAIR has changed its name to… wait for it… WTF!

    That’s right, the terrorist-sponsoring Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Trial, FBI “consultants” and promoters of Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood BFFs, just changed their name to the Washington Trust Foundation.

    This seems to be part of an effort to improve their image after laundering foreign contributions to avoid IRS regulations.

    Bad acronyms are bad. Fun fact: The elite of the elite in the French Foreign Legion are members of a HALO hit squad that is called when there is a target that needs killing somewhere deep behind ennemy lines (they also do black ops for the French intelligence and other nice stuff). Since the French Foreign Legion is a mercenary force, that unit is filled with veterans from the British SAS or US Seals who want to see "real" action.

    For about 20 years that elite group was called the "Deep Action and Recon Commando", which in French is: "Commandos de Recherche et d'Action en Profondeur"... Funny enough the name was changed in '99:

    @Wikipedia said:

    Apparently, the unit was renamed as GCP after a discussion between the commander of CRAP at the time, Lieutenant Colonel Pascal Chapoulaud, and a US Army officer whilst on operations. The US Army officer had asked the commander of CRAP if he knew the meaning of the word 'crap' in English. Lieutenant Colonel Chapoulaud replied that he did not know, and asked a translator what the word meant. The translator informed the lieutenant colonel that the word 'crap' meant the equivalent of 'shit' in the French language. The unit's name of 'CRAP' thus changed to 'GCP' after this event.

    You guys are CRAP!

    Although the English version of the name lends itself to DARC as an acronym, which is TOTALLY AWESOME. French is such an inferior language.

    homophobia

    I find that word offensive. I know it's typical propaganda from various minorities to pretend that people are "afraid" of them because they are different, but we all know it's bullshit. Does anyone say "cuntphobia" or "junglebunnyphobia"? No it's "sexism" and "racism".

    I know every single one of them is flamboyant and fabulous but if what they truly want is equality gay people should come up with a term that does not put them on some kind of pity pedestal. I think they are just mad because Africa is stealing the AIDS spotlight from them. Sourpusses.

    Gun-havephobia?

    I'm sure there was a lot of people who would have enjoyed having a handgun on Monday in that naval base (another one of those fish in a barrel sitting ducks gun free zones like Virginia tech). Unfortunately people with gun-havephobia prevailed in the gun control debate and made sure that the majority could not defend itself against the occasional crazy shooter.

    You and your kind are abusing language. This is normal in the evolution of language, but your silly rationalization should still be mocked. Also, based on your reasoning, I will henceforth call racists what they are: negrophobic.

    Racists tend to hate other ethnic groups, not be scared by them. So no phobia involved. Besides, there are black racists who hate whites, so the negro bit is wrong as well. I'm not the one being silly...

    Yes, I know there are all sorts of racists, but the people who like to shout racist the most don't, so I think it will be OK. I suppose we could argue about whether they "hate" or "fear" more, but it's still an awful abuse of language.

    True, though if you go pedantic technically the brain regions activated by fear and disgust are only very closely related (rather than the same) so technically OldCrow could have just been being a superpedant (otherwise known as most members of this forum).

    Ignorant? Calling someone of differing opinion ignorant is a common tactic of those who have no rationale for their own position. Do tell, what is your rationale for shouting about your deviancy on the streets? History shows that you'll be put down sooner or later. Humanity never strays that far from God before the inevitable rebound. [1]

    Unpopular? Depends on whether your definition of "popular opinion". I find that the two definitions "opinion shouted in the news/TV" and "what the majority of people on the street think" differ greatly most of the time. Has to do with loud minorities getting a lot of screen time.

     Sock puppet? Hardly. But I don't write these posts from work. And it takes exceptional stupidity to get me to bother writing a corrective reply in the evening.

    Pedantic? Me? Sometimes.

    Disgust and fear near each other? Perhaps. But I don't see disgust invoked by unknowns too often; the usual exception being slimes and their unknown bacteria. You're usually disgusted because you see the twistedness of sick mind manifest from its deeds.

    So according to you, if someone hates people because of their sexual orientation, they are afraid of them, but if they hate them because of their race (or gender), they are not?

    According to reliable sources, you are indeed silly if you believe that.

    Lots. You certainly appear to, since you aren't even able to type the word faggot without using asterisks.

    Witness all the 'hetro' men who, for some reason, seem to feel that because they suddenly discover that someone's gay, then that someone will come onto them, even though they're ugly as fuck and no straight women would even consider going near them, let alone a gay man.

"Homophobia" is inaccurate because people who don't like gays are not afraid of them, they just don't like them. That's a fact of life: not liking does not mean hating, and not liking does not mean being afraid either.

    I don't like cinnamon buns, I would never eat one and will even make a detour to avoir walking by a cinnamon bun stand because I find the smell disgusting; but I'm not afraid of cinnamon buns and can't even say that I hate cinnamon buns, I just don't like cinnamon buns. So eat as many of them as you want but don't shove them in my face and don't insult me by saying I'm afraid of them*.
