Via Borepatch, I followed a link to this douchebag's website. For a guy who professes love and courage and humility, he doesn't seem to show a lot of those qualities. As BP says, this guy is obviously intellectually frivolous, using Hitchens' definition.
Nor does he seem to understand or acknowledge that maybe "Akmed's dad or Mohammed's dad" might have been the ones who machined-gunned schools for allowing girls to attend or who beat a woman for the audacity of being raped or who destroyed an ancient piece of artwork in the name of their religion. He does not understand or acknowledge that our troops are people with families also and have the courage and conviction to lay it all on the line, not mock and dehumanize our soldiers from behind a keyboard. He also seems to be one of those who feels that being brown is better (I personally don't care about skin tone or the lack thereof) and being an adherent of an 8th century religious practice automatically grants you immunity from your abhorrent actions.
I think he would have been one of those spitting at the troops coming back from Vietnam, except I doubt he was spawned then. He's one of those who hates and twists something good, like a sleeping baby, into something ugly.
