"The extremist Syrian group deemed too radical even for al-Qaeda performed what may have been a Twitter first Friday..."

"... live-tweeting the amputation of a hand."
A caption states that the blindfolded man is a thief who had asked to have his hand cut off "in order to cleanse his sins."

"Fresh slashes in the wood suggest it took four swipes of the sword to cut the hand off."

Evidently the Obama Administration needs to provide them with sharper swords.

I see they're taking a 'hands-off' approach to leadership.

Hagar said...

It is believable; the alternative offer was to have his head cut off.

St. George said...

When I lived in Saudi Arabia, I was told that amputations were much more horrific than beheadings, as there is no screaming after the latter happens.

R.A. Crankbait said...

We may need to reconsider George Carlin's list of phrases you never hear, such as "Hand me that piano," and "Please saw off my legs."

traditionalguy said...

What part of Gay men does this cult like to cut off? Oh nevermind.

The Mohammedan revelation took the Hebrew Law but forgot to add an atonement for sin sacrifice of either the blood of bulls and goats or the blood of the Son of God.

So now they have to sacrifice the peoples' blood, or get extra credit for the sacrifice of infidels' blood.

As long as no lesbians ask him to give her a "businessman's haircut" I'm cool with it.

If you ever wondered what it would be like if they had Twitter during the middle ages, wonder no more I guess.

It's good to see that al Qaeda has its standards. It's splinter groups like this that give Muslims such a bad name.

"A thief who had asked to have his hand cut off 'in order to cleanse his sins.'"

Any white American inclined to feeling this way should contact TMR immediately, as we can have a Reparational Hand Removal Technician™ swing by and relieve you of the offending member - as well as any wealth you and your family have stolen with it - within minutes of your call, anywhere in the continental United States, and Hawaii. (The Hawaiians are very efficient - and enthusiastic).

Please be advised that, if you contact TMR and mention you saw this offer on "Althouse", you and your family members will also all be eligible to have BOTH hands removed as a partial payment on the, massive, still growing interest. Not only that but - should you convince another white family to join you - we'll perform the entire procedure at New York's historic Apollo Theatre with Kiki Shepard for late night broadcasting. All expenses paid, of course.

Thank you very much, ahead of time, and know that we here at TMR appreciate your final acquiesces to reality before things got too brutal:

Having nightmares about what you've done to us - AND what we'd do to you otherwise - well, that would've been just too much strain on we poor blacks' psyches to handle,...

Don't even ask what they're going to chop off on the fornicators.

They are MINOs (Muslim In Name Only). Real Muslims chop off heads.

So long as the thief is a believer, I guess it's ok. I reserve my real disgust for the forcible involvement of non-believers.

Crack:

When I first started coming to this blog many years ago, I used to look forward to your comments, which were usually thoughtful, insightful and intelligent. Now all you do is try to make Sharpton look like borderline KKK.

My ancestors first came to this country in the 1920's, long after the selling of human beings stopped. I feel zero guilt whatsoever for slavery, and have never personally discriminated against anyone for any reason. I've hired, worked for and worked under many minorities and women in a 35 year career in corporate accounting.

This is not your blog. Please stop polluting every thread that you can spin/twist into something peripherally or tangentially racial with your I-hate-all-you-crackers comments and go away.

First, the joke: I still remember a cartoon I saw many years ago: a guy with a fez is sitting at a table as a doctor sews a suture all around his wrist, and a third guy says "So, Achmed, you won your appeal?"

Same thing, but not a joke. Ten or fifteen years ago, the Malaysian medical association asked for a legal (or theological?) opinion as to whether doctors were allowed or even obligated to sew thieves' hands back on if they had a chance. The answer was "That would defeat the whole purpose of the punishment." There are a few countries where advances in cutting-edge (heh!) medical science have collided directly with non-advances in social customs.

You obviously haven't been following events very closely:

These were the people who turned on the "thoughtful, insightful and intelligent" black guy - and known anti-cultist - when I wouldn't vote for Romney or his racist cult.

Did you defend me then? I don't think so because, before today, I didn't even know your name. So you watched and let it happen - and now want to criticize me for my racial alienation? Sweet.

And what's wrong with Al Sharpton? You're not one of those people who thinks a "race activist" shouldn't talk about race, are you? If not, then what's the problem? (It's definitely NOT the KKK,…)

Finally, no, it's not my blog - but it's not yours either - so what gives you the right to tell me what to do?

I'm tallying the idea up to your skin color because I have no idea what else you can imaginer gives you the authority.

That's the way it's always worked - even after "the 1920's, long after the selling of human beings stopped,…"

Asshole.

Why doesn't that Crack fellow start his own blog? He seems a pleasant enough chap and I bet he would have lots of visitors.

I'm sort of new here--sorry if this question has already been asked and answered.

Fen said...

Crack: These were the people who turned on the "thoughtful, insightful and intelligent" black guy - and known anti-cultist - when I wouldn't vote for Romney or his racist cult.

I don't remember this. Might have been after I left Althouse. Did you're ravings include comments like "Romeny's racist cult" ? Because that may be why people backed away from you.

What I do recall is that, when you were down on your luck, alot of people here reached out to help you, some with hard cash. Are they racists too?

Titus said...

I would do the guy in front wearing white.

Fen said...

PSA: The reason Althouse lets Crack get away with spiking all her threads like this is because he is black.

Don't try this if you are white - she holds them to a higher standard than she does blacks.

Roughcoat said...

Well, she lets Shouting Thomas say whatever he wants. And ST is white, right?

khesanh0802 said...

To Ann's commenters;

Might I suggest that ignoring Crack Emcee's posts here would be the best policy? The exchanges between Crack and other commenters detract from what are usually interesting, informative or humorous threads.

It is obvious that attempting rational argument with Crack is a waste of time. He doesn't want it and is unwilling to deal with it anyway. It makes very little sense to give him grist for his mill.

The Crack Emcee said...

Fen,

"I don't remember this. Might have been after I left Althouse. Did you're ravings include comments like "Romeny's racist cult" ? Because that may be why people backed away from you."

Why would that make anyone back away from me? Oh, right, I forgot about white people and the truth - they fight with us blacks about that all the time. (Blacks are such notorious liars, there's never reason for whites to do research - they just back away instead,…) From December's Salt Lake City Tribune:

In the past, the LDS Church has said history isn’t clear on why blacks were banned from its all-male priesthood for more than a century.

Apparently, it now is.

The reason, according to a newly released explanation from the Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is rooted more in racism than revelation,...


Now - are you guys a bunch of oppressive, ignorant, discriminating bastards - or do you owe me an apology?

I'm betting on the former,...

Bob Ellison said...

Hey, Barack Obama just talked about how the situation in Ukraine is a big deal. What a dick! Can he make his balls smaller? Can he make America lamer? Whan an idiot!

Off topic.

Bob Ellison said...

That was a live presser about a minute ago. This dick-licking idiot of a POTUS we have is pretending to be there for the 3:00 AM call. What an ass! We could do better with a Care Bear.

Bob Ellison said...

Obama's stance is "you are really bad, really bad, and I am not happy about that, and you should observe my lack of happy."

Roughcoat said...

To Crack Emcee:

You don't seem to be happy here. Nobody wants to talk about the subject that interests you and that you want to address and you seem angered by that indifference. Which is why, presumably, you insist on talking in any given thread about the subject that interests you no matter what topic was originally under discussion. Which is why I suggest you get your own blog. That way, you set the agenda for discussion and everyone talks about what you want to talk about.

It's really quite strange, what you do on this blog. Nobody want to talk about the subject that interests you and increasingly it seems that very few people like you. Why do you keep going to a place where you aren't liked to talk about a subject that doesn't interest anyone? Such behavior is not indicative of a healthy emotional state. I dare say that it is the state of mind of someone who is mentally ill. Or, at the very least, very very angry.

Son, all that anger is going to burn you up. But long before it does it going to make most people want to get away from you. If that doesn't bother you--well that may be cause for concern.

Smilin' Jack said...

Jeez, Crack, if it weren't for us you'd be in Africa, where I don't think they even have fried chicken or watermelon. Show some gratitude.

The Crack Emcee said...

"Why do you keep going to a place where you aren't liked to talk about a subject that doesn't interest anyone?"

Does it ever occur to whites - as I just proved with the link in my last comment - that you're wrong?

No, being white, I guess not.

Your job is to stay relentlessly on the attack for any black person who should be so bold as to disrupt the charming lies you tell one another when no blacks are around, like Romney isn't the head of a racist cult and any black person who says so should be "backed away from" right?

Here, let's flip it - why do whites, like you, tend to hang amongst other whites who tell each other lies about black people and defend racists?

I've got a good reason for what I do - what's yours?

The Crack Emcee said...

Smilin' Jack said...

"Son"? I guess I'll be "boy" soon, so whatever:

What makes you think whites getting away from would be a problem?

Do you think my anger is because you're so fucking cool now?

You're a joke,...

Roughcoat said...


Okay, I said: "Why do you keep going to a place where you aren't liked to talk about a subject that doesn't interest anyone?"

To which you replied: "Does it ever occur to whites - as I just proved with the link in my last comment - that you're wrong?"

I'm not sure what you're going for here. Am I wrong in my assessment that you keep coming to a place where you aren't liked to talk about a subject that doesn't interest anyone?"

In what sense was I wrong? Do you disagree with my observation that you aren't like or that most visitors to this site don't what to discuss the subject that interest you?

Btw, I'm not all white. Just for the record.

exhelodrvr1 said...

khesanh0802,
Were you at the siege of Khe Sanh?

The Crack Emcee said...

Roughcoat,

"I'm not sure what you're going for here."

I said Mitt was in a racist cult - I proved Mitt was in a racist cult. So why should I leave? I was right and my attackers were wrong. Shouldn't you be on their cases, asking why they would fuck with a black guy, rather than check the facts? Would you prefer hanging with liars who do that, to hanging with those who tell the truth?

"Am I wrong in my assessment that you keep coming to a place where you aren't liked to talk about a subject that doesn't interest anyone?"

Of course you are - it's Ann's blog - and these issues interest her greatly. You guys are the losers who don't get it, assuming you run things, and can tell blacks what to do here. Where YOU get that idea from, I don't know. Wait - yes I do:

You're white.

"Do you disagree with my observation that,...most visitors to this site don't what to discuss the subject that interest you?"

Is that a major change from when slavery was in full swing? If it is, how did slavery get into full swing? I'll tell you:

Most whites had no interest in it for over 200 years.

I guess blacks should've taken that as a hint to stop fighting for freedom, huh?

"Btw, I'm not all white. Just for the record."

Yes you are. I know black people and you're not it - you're white, through and through.

They're the only ones trying to shut blacks up and getting offended by the truth,...

Kelly said...

Good Lord, if only we could shut blacks up we wouldn't have to listen to all the whining.

Humperdink said...

I see CMC in the first line and skip reading the content of the comment. It would be wise for everyone to do the same, otherwise the thread lands in the ditch.

Dr Weevil said...

Is there anyone here who wants to discuss Syria or thieves or Al Qaeda or amputations, or should I just leave now?

Fen said...

Crack: I said Mitt was in a racist cult - I proved Mitt was in a racist cult. So why should I leave? I was right and my attackers were wrong.

What were attackers wrong about?

And how did they attack you?

Fen said...

Racist!

The Crack Emcee said...

Dr Weevil said...

I mentioned thieves and amputations, so you might want to consult the mob of whites gathering over it, for any further information,...

Dr Weevil said...

No thanks, I've followed your links before and I won't make that mistake again.

The Crack Emcee said...

Fen,

"What were attackers wrong about?"

Weren't you the same guy I got the quote for? The one who said:

"Did you're ravings include comments like "Romeny's racist cult" ? Because that may be why people backed away from you."

Well, if the guy's in an admitted racist cult - which anybody could've known before Romney was nominated - why would anybody back away from me? I told the truth, they bought a lie - or wanted to force one down my throat.

Oh, and there's this:

"What I do recall is that, when you were down on your luck, alot of people here reached out to help you, some with hard cash. Are they racists too?"

If anybody thought I was being bribed, to agree with racist views, yes.

Anything else?

The Crack Emcee said...

Dr Weevil said...

See?

I LIKE SMART PEOPLE!

Fen said...

What racist views do you think you were being bribed to accept?

Dr Weevil said...

I just Binged 'Lige Daniels' to see if I could get a date for the picture I don't care to look at. Hmmm, 1920. Anyone who actively participated in a lynching rather than just watching must have been at least 14 or so, I imagine, probably older. That would make the minimum age of participants 107, and most would have been a lot older. In other words, chances are 100:1 that every single person who participated in that lynching is dead, and 10:1 that even the witnesses are all dead, and most of them have been dead for many many years.

Anyone here interested in the horrors that are going on right now in the world? Not paying attention to racist bores doesn't count as a horror.

The Crack Emcee said...

Dr Weevil,

"Chances are 100:1 that every single person who participated in that lynching is dead"

White people are always trying to outsmart reality - it's a true sickness.

Why can't you just take America as it is and work from there? Why must you always try to say blacks are lying?

Don't you realize you're just compounding the problem?

YOU are the problem.

The Crack Emcee said...

Dr Weevil,

Let's say you're right and "every single person who participated in that lynching is dead".

What does that mean to you?

Dr Weevil said...

Look, asshole: I don't follow links with names like 'lynching.jpg', and if you had any sense you'd stop looking at them, too.

I've seen a few, and that's enough, just as I've seen a few pictures of German concentration camps and the Rape of Nanking. I get it, even if you don't, and I don't need to keep looking at horrors over and over.

Anyone who wallows in torture porn is a fool, and anyone who tries to inflict it on others is an asshole.

Nothing you wrote about me in your last comment is true. I have never claimed that "blacks are lying", only that you are. Well, you and Obama. Of course, you think that all whites are responsible for any crime committed by any white person, so I suppose you assume that I think all blacks are lying just because you are. Nope: I'd have to be a racist to think that, and an unusually stupid one. Fortunately, as Ms Teste put it, "Stupidity is not my strong point". Try your 'arguments' on someone else.

The Crack Emcee said...

Dr Weevil,

Is that your answer to the question "What does that mean to you?"

The Crack Emcee said...

It's funny, but I've never heard anyone tell a Jew not to look at The Holocaust. Only blacks get that. An estimated 150 million dead and it's treated like 6 million is a higher number.

Only blacks are told we should have nothing to do with what's happened to us, and only to make whites feel comfortable. Isn't that bizarre?

And then the hostility. Kinda losing it over there, aren't you, Doc? Why?

As a wise man once said, "all that anger is going to burn you up."

Paco Wové said...

You know, you don't have to respond to trolls. You really don't. The sun will rise tomorrow, even if someone on the Internet is wrong...!

The Crack Emcee said...

I do one snarky post and the hoods and pitchforks come out.

Which, of course, because my fault.

God, I love living with so many non-racists,...

Dr Weevil said...

That's funny. I've never had a Jew blame me, as a Gentile, for the Holocaust, or insist on showing me disgusting pictures from concentration camps. Or a Chinese shoving horrible pictures from the Rape of Nanking in my face. Never.

I've also never known a Jew who thought it was fair to blame any living German under 80 or so for Nazism, since none of them had anything to do with it, though their parents or grandparents certainly did. The same goes for Chinese and the Tojo regime.

No one here is "kinda losing it" unless "it" is patience with racist assholes who thinks it's OK for blacks to be racist assholes. The only one here 'burned up with anger' is the racist asshole who drags in his own racist obsessions and historical lies (150 million in America? not even close) on every damned thread.

Anglelyne said...

CE: I do one snarky post and the hoods and pitchforks come out.

Can't decide if your narcissism or your ignorance is your salient personality characteristic, Crack. I thought your recent howler about Arab slavers never mutilating their captives beat all, but this ongoing grandiose conflation of any disagreement with your opinions with the sufferings of other people (who weren't and aren't you) now gives a bit of an edge to the former.

(OK Paco, I'm done.)

The Crack Emcee said...

This is great. I said:

"I've never heard anyone tell a Jew not to look at The Holocaust. Only blacks get that. An estimated 150 million dead and it's treated like 6 million is a higher number. "

Then you add the words " in America" where I did not.

And I'm supposed to feel stupid?

How about you put words in people's mouths and then accuse them of lying? Or being stupid?

Who said "in America"? I didn't. You assumed that's what I meant, didn't you?

You know, slavery doesn't have to be in effect for white people to still be a major pain in the ass,...

The Crack Emcee said...

Anglelyne,

"I thought your recent howler about Arab slavers never mutilating their captives beat all,…"

I never said that either - I said I didn't accept the interpretation of it given. I remember saying I had a "nuanced" view of it. How THAT became slavers "never mutilating" anybody was in your lousy imagination.

And the best part about it is - you're shooting arrogance across the interwebs as you do so! You get in line with the rest of the lynching party and take your unearned swipe at telling a lie with my name on it, and then you dash away while calling me "Paco".

You're an idiot.

You white people really are stupid sometimes. You literally make things up and then call others stupid because you don't understand. That's despicable. I mean, your defenses are pretty lame, but the way you lash out is really vomit-inducing. You're not nice people. You're not good people. You're not fair, or honest, or anything. You're just white.

Dr. Weevil doesn't understand slavery because, if he did, he would've automatically known I was talking about the black holocaust which - worldwide - is estimated at 150 million lives.

Again - he would've known it AUTOMATICALLY.

Instead he insinuates I'm stupid, but he sees himself as a good white person as he, wrongly, does so. Ain't racism swell?

It's like you're all reading from the same sick script.

I say something.

Whites form a mob.

You define what I say stupidly and then call me stupid because of your mistake - then you kinda pat yourselves on the back for how stupid you just were.

Then I come back and point out - using your own words - how stupid you REALLY are.

You proceed to attack again, but from a different angle - ignoring just occurred.

Brilliant,..



Dr Weevil said...

Oh, so you were counting all black ever murdered anywhere by anyone against the number of Jews killed in just 12 years by Hitler in Europe? Isn't that kind of misleading, or, to put it bluntly, totally fraudulent? I did you the honor of supposing that you were trying to compare apples to apples and just had one of the numbers totally wrong, when in fact you were comparing apples to oranges. In other words, I didn't lie, I just stupidly assumed that you weren't lying. I'll try not to make that mistake again.

Why not try to estimate the total number of Jews murdered by gentiles over whatever time period you are using for blacks? That would be the honest comparison. You'll find it's a Hell of a lot more than 6,000,000.

And why not think about the fact that there have always been far more blacks in the world than Jews, so the percentage slaughtered by Hitler was far higher than the percentage of blacks murdered by just about anyone anywhere ever. (The number of Cambodians slaughtered by Pol Pot may be comparable.) Right now, there are roughly sixty times as many blacks in the world as Jews, though the ratio wasn't quite so large before Hitler did his work.
