Thanks to all six people who sent me this story, saving me the trouble of searching for outrageous shit to blog about….
The founder of a television station which aims to counteract negative stereotypes of Muslims in America has been charged with beheading his wife.
Stop right there. Is this not delicious? In one swing of the saber, this murderous media savage does more to slime Muslims than Osama bin Laden and his 40 suicide bombers. Well, 19 anyway.
Officers went to the headquarters of Bridges TV and found Mrs. Hassan lying decapitated in a hallway, having apparently died that afternoon. Police are still hunting for a murder weapon, according to reports in The Buffalo News.
“We’re figuring a box cutter,” said a police spokesman. “We doubt he did it with his razor sharp intellect or cutting edge sense of humor. Or is that racial profiling?”
Muzzannil Hassan was the chief executive officer of the satellite-distributed news and opinion channel that he and his wife set up in 2004 to portray Muslims in a more positive light……He graduated magna cum laude with an MBA from the Simon School of Business at the University of Rochester in 1996. In a 2005 interview with The Buffalo News, he said that the idea for the TV station was sparked two years earlier when the couple heard derogatory remarks about American Muslims on a radio talk show.
And Bernie Made-off got into the investment business to combat stereotypes of crooked Jews so corrupt they’d feed on their own community. Ted Haggard led New Life Church and preached against homosexuality to cleanse evangelicals of sin. Rush Limbaugh got on the radio and advocated banishing drug abusers to sodomized hell. You get the picture.
The higher the horse they preach from, the more they resemble its ass. Mencken didn’t say that, but he should have.
