We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

The moonbat crazy right

A ‘muslim’ babe called Rimah Fakih wins a beauty pageant in the USA and apparently this is a Hezbollah conspiracy.

Yup, clearly a sign of how deep radical muslim infiltration of key American institutions go. Moreover as we all know that beauty pageant winners are known for their original thinking and deep political insights, and moreover some radical in Lebanon (this one, not this one) shares her family name apparently, the Islamisation of the good ol’ USA is clearly at hand.

I have posted these images as a wake up call to American to act before they are overrun with bikini wearing pole dancers intent on destroying the home of the free and land of the brave.

No need to thank me… just another high minded public service from samizdata.net

  • Pity about the sharp knees.

  • Johnathan Pearce

    Maybe we should let the lovely Gabriel
    back to share his thoughts about all
    this terrible social liberalism, depravity,
    lack of obedience to ancient texts etc.

    Then again, perhaps not.

  • This is only more proof of the extraordinary danger she presents. She is clearly a super seekrit agent in DEEP COVER!

    This conspiracy theory has been brought to you by the Committee for Inappropriate Metaphors.

  • If this is the face of islamization I say, more of the same, please!

  • No no no, you got it all wrong – she actually is a real Zionist tool! This would also explain the (alleged) sharp knees.

  • PersonFromPorlock

    Moonbat indeed, if true: but the memorable right-wing comments I’ve seen have tended to be snickers about ‘earthquakes’. She is certainly a very pretty young woman.

  • the other rob

    @ Tomas: The face? Never mind the face…

  • There’s always the possibility that she’s wearing a burka under that bikini.

  • RAB

    Way to go! And just think, under Sharia Law, I can have up to five of those!
    I’m off to convert immediately. Er, on second thoughts, best not. I’m much more afraid of Mrs RAB than I am creeping Islamisation. ;-)

  • Nothing wrong with her face either, the woman is gorgeous. (…Hmmm, someone is in urgent need of reaffirming her sexual orientation…)

  • Thanks for this excellent (and very distracting) post!

  • Fun as this is, there’s an irony at play in this story. There is a controversy about her in the States- and the top picture is the cause of it. As happens with these curious contests sometimes, she has won, and then they discovered she has done ghastly slutty things, like pole dancing, and brought the contest into “disrepute”.

    So, tragically, her reward for breaking the proscriptions of Islam is to be condemned by American society. Nice one, America. Way to go.

  • You are taking it a bit too far Ian. She hasn’t been condemned by American society (which is what, exactly?) She hasn’t played by the rules of a private contest, and people to whom, for some inexplicable reason, this contest is important, don’t like it, that’s all there is to it.

  • “This is only more proof of the extraordinary danger she presents. She is clearly a super seekrit agent in DEEP COVER!”

    Indeed, this insidious woman needs to be uncovered! Please post more pictures of her so that we can be better prepared to thwart her evil plans.

  • RAB

    Well at least they havent lost the plot entirely like the Miss England competition.
    They have got rid of the Bikini round and replaced it with a fun run?? probably a Cardigan, pearls and Nora Batty’s round, followed by Chess, in an attempt to lose the “Cattle market” image.
    Copping a vicarious look at the scantily clad beautiful goods is the one and only point of a Beauty Contest you PC dorks!

  • jdm

    Ms Schlussel… fish, barrel, shoot. I just want you to know, Perry, that I appreciate you finding occasion to post these delightful pictures for the lamest of reasons.

    ;-)

  • Actually, Miss Schlussel – who, lives in Michigan, unlike, I assume, *jdm – might be right on the target.

    MI became notorious for the amount of its muslim population. I have seen much more women in burkas in Detroit compared to NY – and that’s saying something, since I live in a neighborhood that got a nickname Bay Root (as a pun to Bay Ridge and Beirut) – in August here you can be smell local ladies in black, including mittens and “face apron”, a block in advance.

    As to the contender in question: I don’t know why is it so surprising to anyone that muslims have their whores, too. I know, the mullahs like to preach the incomparable virtues of islamic women – but surely you’re not so gullible to believe it?

  • Is Schlussel right or wrong about the Hezbollah associations?

  • Alan K Henderson – you asking same questions as arab filth in the comments to this post of Debbie’s.

    Why don’t you just come out and say, as they do, that Debbie is biased because she’s a Jew:
    I wonder where Debbie got her detailed info about the family, Mossad? or the Israeli embassy in DC? It looks like Debbie loyalty belongs to Israel more than the U.S. [by one John Saidi – and that’s the most coherent and mild comments there.

    Click on the link, Alan. There are more links inside the post. If you’re not satisfied with them, drop a – polite – note to Ms. Schlussel, maybe she’ll feel inclined to provide her sources – or maybe not, as she is perfectly within her right to not do so.

    She does excellent job as a journalist as an American citizen – unlike buffoons, whose vision is easily fogged by a picture of a barely-clad arab whore.

  • jdm

    Dear Tatyana,

    I’d like to thank you for correcting me. Clearly, being amused by the reactions of obsessive and perpetually outraged Islamophobes, so ably represented by Ms Schlussel, was wrong.

    I understand so much better now. There is no room for humor in this and I should slink back where I came from.

    Thanks.

  • Kim du Toit

    She’s beautiful, she won a beauty pageant. All else is just irrelevant, the crazed fulminations of La Schlussel to the contrary.

    If an amateur pole-dancing competition is the kind of thing which disqualifies a woman from a pageant, then too bad for her — and, I suspect, for a lot of other contestants who may have the same or worse skeletons in their respective closets.

    Just remember the rule of thumb, though: anything touched, owned or otherwise controlled by the loathsome Donald Trump is something to stay away from.

  • MI became notorious for the amount of its muslim population. I have seen much more women in burkas in Detroit compared to NY

    And from this fact I am to deduce that because an ethnic arab woman went native and won beauty pageant that a puritanical fascist outfit in south Lebanon (i.e. Hezbollah) has someone won something?

    I prefer the scenario that other young arab women in the USA might see this and think something rather different than “what a triumph for Islam over the decadent west and one in the eye for Israel!”

    I suspect Schlussel is seeing dark conspiracies in a very strange and inconsequential place. I do not know enough about Schlussel to have a conclusive view on her but if this is representative, well it is redolent with the gorgonzola-like odour of moonbattery. If she is otherwise sound, well fine and dandy but I guess we all have our “off days”.

    I think Kim pretty much nails this (and I am inclined to his view on all things Trump as well).

  • Subotai Bahadur

    From what I have seen online, the blogosphere in the US really is not all that upset about Ms. Fakih’s Muslim background, other than a few posters. The very process of the series of beauty pageants to get to Miss USA tends to rule out her being some sort of arch-Wahabist. I’ve noted at least as much uproar about the questions asked the contestants. Ms. Fakih was asked a puff question and ended up rambling [inaccurately] about birth control and health insurance, if the transcriptions I have seen are accurate. Miss Oklahoma [came in second] was asked by an Hispanic judge about Arizona’s SB-1070 law concerning illegal immigration . When she came out in favor of it and actually mentioned the rights of states to make laws; that killed her chances of winning due to political correctness. This is neither the time nor the place to debate the Arizona law; but combine the PC hit on Miss Oklahoma with the PC plus of a Muslim winner [which I am sure the judges were hoping would make Republicans’ heads explode] and it was a sure thing. No Dhimmi conspiracy, just typical Hollywood Leftists.

    The young lady is taking a not inconsiderable risk. While her winning probably is not any sort of Jihadist conspiracy; such conspiracies do exist. I can see either Wahabist or Shia groups attempting one of their all too frequent “honor killings” either because she has assimilated into infidel society or because of her “sinful” activities.

    While I definitely enjoy the view provided, I usually pay basically zero attention to such contests unless some sort of political controversy comes out of it. I wish the young lady health and safety.

  • Paul Marks

    Debbie S. had a real story about Miss Oklahoma (although it is a story that lots of other people have also picked up – indeed Donald Trump half admitted it himself).

    Whatever people think of the Arizona law (and before apologizing to Mexico and to RED CHINA, and making various nasty threats against Arizona, perhaps Holder, Obama and so on should READ the law – after all it is only ten pages long), someone should not be denied the prize at a pageant because of their political opinions.

    However, then Debbie S. went into overdrive over the person who won instead of Miss Oklahoma (Miss Michigan).

    This is called “over reaching”. Seeing political motives in things is fine (there often ARE political motives in things – see above), but then trying to apply them to EVERYTHING slips from “paranoia” (i.e. being called paranoid by the left – which should be worn as a badge of seeing into the various plots of the left) to REALLY being paranoid.

    In short – sure there are plots (many of them), but not everything is a plot.

    In this case (as Perry points out) I doubt that the Islamic radicals (Shia or Sunni) are pleased with the victory of Miss Michigan. I do not think they are “laughing” (as Debbie S. believes), I think they are more likely to be spitting blood.

  • Paul, maybe you should ask yourself, as Debbie did – who was the sponsor of this whore. And then look for some quotes by that disgusting slut. And read what Debbie dug up.

    I prefer the scenario that other young arab women in the USA might see this and think something rather different than “what a triumph for Islam over the decadent west and one in the eye for Israel!”

    Amazing how clueless men can be when shown a piece of wriggling belly.

    As to “gorgonzola” comment – that’s still better than the stink emanating froma dirty arab whore.

  • Sunfish

    Attractive woman pole-dances. Humorless people in 12th century fulminate. Film at 11.

    This war will end when there is a stripper pole in a bar on the site of what used to be the Kaaba. But other than that, this merely proves the existence of yet another good-looking woman with (presumably) no interest in me. Hardly a revelation, that.

  • Aoun, Rafqa

    that’s still better than the stink emanating froma dirty arab whore.

    Wow, it must be a full moon. Yes, stick them all back in chadors, right? At least that way she can be safely catalogued as one of them and ignored. Does she really frighten you so much? Your need to hate this pretty but inconsequential woman does not reflect well on you.

  • Aoun – and what makes you think I give a flying fuck about how my opinion “reflects on me” in your eyes?

  • Another quote by Debbie; maybe now some people can tear their eyes off the dangling tits of a Dearborn’ whore and actually start thinking of what are they really looking at:

    “America and its silly beauty pageants proved long ago that they don’t discriminate against ethnicities in picking winners. Hayek won the Miss USA crown in 1983. But it didn’t get the media hype because she wasn’t a Muslim. If only the Lebanese Christians murdered thousands of Americans the Muslims have and flown planes into buildings, if only they’d tried to rig their underwear to blow up a plane and a car to blow up a busy New York tourist thoroughfare, if only they’d murdered 241 U.S. Marines while they slept as Miss Fakih’s Hezbollah family members did, then she would have had a bigger career.

    If only . . . . Julie, you and your fellow co-religionist Christian Arabs missed the boat. You should have mass-murdered, raped, tortured, and pillaged. And you would have had the Western world grovelling at your feet and kissing your rear.

    That’s the clear lesson here. All of this revisionism about “first Arab-American” is bunk. The only first here is that Rima Fakih is the first Hezbollah-American Miss USA. Everything else is just PR gloss and rich fertilizer.

  • Aoun, Rafqa

    I am sure you don’t, Tatyana, so feel free to keep digging that hole you are standing in deeper if you wish to further validate the title of the original article.

  • Well Allahuakbarrrrr. Ding Dong.

  • Alisa-

    She hasn’t been condemned by American society (which is what, exactly?)

    In this case, “society” is those whose voices are dominant, that is the “public” voice. It rarely coincides with the wider view, but it is the one that is heard. So what matters is what the perceived “right” view is, not what most people think. As another example, in the general population there are all sorts of views on narcotics, but the “official” view is that drugs are evil and must be prohibited, and in terms of policy that is the one that counts.

    She hasn’t played by the rules of a private contest, and people to whom, for some inexplicable reason, this contest is important, don’t like it, that’s all there is to it.

    The question is, why are those particular rules in place? Why does it matter that she entered a pole dancing competition? Why have a rule about that in particular?

    Libertarians- we all do it- have a tendency to be so focussed on the State, that we say “well, if it’s a private matter it’s none of our business”. That’s correct from a perspective of libertarian politics. But we can still ask why particular private rules have been made. For instance, in some other time or place there might be a “no Jews” rule. A private organisation would (in Libertarian terms) have a right to make that rule. But we are still at liberty to question its motives.

    So what I’m saying here is that this rule is a manifestation of puritan ethics, the same puritan ethics that drive the very Islamists we condemn. It’s no good condemning their restrictions on women’s behaviour when they exist in our own society too, even if they may be of lesser degree.

    The reality is, I believe, that when you get down to it, Islamism is simply a fearful reaction against western liberalism. The Islamists think that under western influence their women will become dirty whores and they’ll lose control of them. (And they are right in this. Perry said here a long while ago that western culture is “corrosive”; and it is.)

    By condemning this woman the pageant, and society at large which supports such rules, are agreeing with the Islamists. It’s the same moral panic in quality, if different in degree. Until we can be proud of our pole dancers, rather than ashamed, we will never have an ideological answer to the Taliban- and thus we’ll never have a practical and strategic one either.

  • The question is, why are those particular rules in place? Why does it matter that she entered a pole dancing competition? Why have a rule about that in particular?

    No, the question is: who the hell cares? If you do, you may be in urgent need of something you might call ‘a life’.

    Libertarians- we all do it- have a tendency to be so focussed on the State, that we say “well, if it’s a private matter it’s none of our business”.

    Hmm, I kinda like this – maybe I should explore libertarianism in more depth…

    It’s no good condemning their restrictions on women’s behaviour

    And I don’t, what I condemn is the fact that membership in the Islamic club is not voluntary.

    Until we can be proud of our pole dancers, rather than ashamed

    Personally I am rather indifferent, but I do resent your attempt to question other people’s non-violent moral choices. I know it is difficult to grasp, but it is really and truly nobody’s damn business but their own.

  • No, the question is: who the hell cares? If you do, you may be in urgent need of something you might call ‘a life’.

    I think I prefer sharp knees to an unneccessarily sharp tongue.

    It is strange that you defend the rights of others not to have their motive questioned, but then immediately question mine. Not very consistent, is it?

  • Nuke Minarcapo Gray

    Alisa, where can I buy one of these zionist tools?

    And why this discrimination against Poles? Aren’t they allowed to have dancing?

  • JanB said:

    There is nothing to be particularly proud of, in case of a stripper/pole dancer (or for that matter, a beauty pageant contender) – and if “we” are not having an ideological answer to Taliban (good grief) by praising a whore – makes no difference if the whore is a muslim one.
    In fact, you put yourself exactly on the same shelf as islamists if you judge woman’s worth either as a whore or a paragon of virtue (besides, muslim modesty is fake anyway). They see nothing in between and have no references outside of this duality (including the pictured slut in question); they have no points of connection with women besides considering their use for basic instincts – as instrumental in getting food, housekeeping, children rearing or providing sexual satisfaction. They are deeply uncivilized – and you want us to get to their barbaric level of perception…well, I do hope 200 years of gradual woman liberation left us with somewhat more progress in that regard.

    Just as you say “we are still at liberty to question [its] motives”, even if we say “it’s not our business’ – by same principle I do question morals -women’s as well as men’s who exploit women for their entertainment. “Libertine” does not follow from “libertarian”.

    It’s usually lefties who allow only one kind of liberty – a sexual liberty, and even in that go into extreme of denying morals altogether. Why not promote muslim women like Hirsi Ali or W. Sultan – not particularly “virtuous”, but definitely not sluts shaking their booties around stripper pole – they proved themselves to be thinking rational passionate erudite and smart human beings .

  • Tatyana, I’ve just scrubbed a long point by point rebuttal and started again.

    You complain of the “Left” and yet what you say is, word for word, a restatement of the ultra-“Left” position of Catharine Mackinnon- down to the marxist use of the term “exploitation”.

    You’re a puritan, so to you mere use of words like “slut” and “whore” are all you need to present your case and to cast other women into the outer darkness. It is not libertines such as I who judge women entirely on sex, it is you. A libertine such as I recognises that women are a myriad things, not just a vagina on legs. That this woman spent an evening dancing does not diminish her in any way in all the other aspects of her personality.

    But to you it does. To you, she is now a lesser creature. Just a whore. You are on the same continuum as those caring mothers who tear out their daughters’ genitals to prevent them ever gaining pleasure from sex. You are as one with those who hide their wives in burkas. Your beliefs are the same, and your logic, if you dare pursue it, will lead you to the same place.

    You see, as a libertine, I am not insisting that women be only sexual functionaries. Indeed, I detest that. But women do have a sexual nature, and that is a wonderful thing, and when they desire to express it they must be free to do so. And, we should be proud of a society that lets them do that and should be “proud” of that in the same sense of “pride” as being proud that we do not persecute gays or lynch black people.

    Sex is part of human life, not a satanic corruption. Get over it. Or, throw on a burka and go live with your spiritual companions in the Dark Ages.

  • ” She is clearly a super seekrit agent in DEEP COVER!”

    I have a suspicion it’s Bin Laden himself we’re looking at, after 6 months on a diet of chicken.

  • Sorry for getting too personal Ian.

  • JanB – sorry for women who come in contact with your “libertarian” attitude.

    That dirty arab slut is not “expressing her sexual nature”.
    She uses your drooling sexual nature to get ahead in life. “Other aspects of her personality” do not exist: to confirm it, you should just tear your gaze from the flesh and listen to what she has to say in Q&A.

    I used the word “exploitation” and you labeled me a marxist? In LJ parlance it’s called “diagnosis by userpic”.
    A perfectly appropriate word.

    To be called a puritan by a libertine is a badge of honor. Next step in your development, from “enlightened” fighter for sexual liberation- as I often seen in blogs – will be getting a Phillipina GF and start raving against feminists and homosexuals, and praising [supposedly] subordinate Asian women who know how to please their master.

    And who the hell is Catharine Whatever?

  • What happened to the Internet about six hours ago? No access to this and several other sites.

    I don’t get Tatyana’s reaction. I swear, in these intertubes comment forums I rile people the most when I’m not even trying. All I wanted to know is if anyone fact-checked Schlussel. The claim that she has relatives in Hezbollah is A HUGE DEAL, and I’d like to see that documented by more than one source.

    Hezbo has been at war with the United States since its inception, and the year prior to its founding its current leader Hassan Nasrallah was one of the masterminds of the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing.

    How many relatives of terrorist organization members are in the US, and what extra measures of scrutiny does the US government place them under? Miss USA may fall far from the Hezbo tree (and she’s in for a lot of private-sector scrutiny anyway), but…what about other Hezbollah kin in the US?

  • “You are on the same continuum as those caring mothers who tear out their daughters’ genitals to prevent them ever gaining pleasure from sex.”

    And you, sir, are on the same “continuum” as King George the fucking III, so go drool over what’s left of your own genitalia.

    “…praising [supposedly] subordinate Asian women who know how to please their master.”

    If you only you knew half of it Tatyana…

  • mike – what, your “love boat of illusions got crushed by the rocks of reality? ” you don’t say!

  • I humbly suggest everyone take a deep breath (don’t forget to exhale though)…

  • That dirty arab slut is not “expressing her sexual nature”.

    “Dirty Arab Slut?” Charming. Which is the bit which sends you off the deep end the most, the fact you think she’s a “slut” or that she’s an “arab”?

    Why don’t you just come out and say, as they do, that Debbie is biased because she’s a Jew

    Yet you seem to have no problem framing this in terms of genetics. She is not just a “Dirty Slut”, she is a “Dirty Arab Slut”.

    Just change a few things… “Dirty Jew Slut”… what would you make of someone using those words in a comment about someone else? I know what unflattering conclusions I’d draw about ‘em so why should anyone view you any differently?

  • Why, Alisa?
    I love mocking the hypocrites.

    Wonder would Jan the Warrior for Sexual Self-Expression of Repressed Women of Arabia be equally pleased by display if the object in question was 45yo thrice grandmother with tits dangling to her waist, cellulite waves covering her thighs to [sharp] knees and a mug poxmarked as road to Damascus?

    Oh, no, JanB, don’t avert your eyes – the muslim terrorists would won if you do that!!!

  • Jainine McAlister: may I humbly refer you to my answer to esteemed Aoun? There(Link).

    Also, a technical note: “dirty arab slut” is a term reflecting an INNER ugliness. A Jewish slut, even removed from access to shower for 30 desert years, shines like a star of David she is.

    PS. Don’t attempt to lecture me on my grammar, too: it’s intentional. Just like my views.

  • Tatyana, I am not a hypocrite, and your unhinged raving is rather tiring. I hate saying this: it is not worth answering, but in this case it clearly really is not. You don’t have a fucking clue what you are talking about, and your “dirty Arab slut” raving is just grossly offensive. Your hatred of other women and, apparently, Arabs, is transparent and vomit-inducing. You are the kind of person who makes me ashamed to be part of the human species.

    As an illustration of your mental ineptitude, you might like to note that first of all you accused men of “exploiting” this woman (even though you do not know what the word means) and then later accuse her of exploiting men for her career! Which is it? Is it possible, is it just possible Tatyana, that in fact she is just a dancer and model, and she and the people who watch her dancing or look at her pictures, are just trading freely in the market, and nobody is exploiting anybody? Could that be it? Can you see past the red haze and shower of spittle to consider that possibility?

    As to Catharine Mackinnon, she originated the term “sexual harrassment”, and is the originator of the theory you are espousing, which is a transliteration of marxism into feminism, espoused in her book, which is available on Google Books, “Towards A Feminist Theory Of The State”. It defines women in terms of expropriation of sexuality (the origin of the feminist usage of “exploitation”, natch) and is the basis of modern feminist anti-sex theory.

    You could find out lots more about her using Google, which is available on your computer. It’s quite technical though, so you may need a man to help you with that.

  • RW

    On a lighter note, anyone who thinks pole dancing is merely sluttish should try this.

  • JanB – baby is booboo? Don’t cry, precious. Go to mama, I mean – to a dirty arab slut. [just be prepared to flash a thick wallet. She’s not doing it for Sexual Self Expression. It’s a marketplace all right]

  • RW: which makes it less slutty? Not in Poland, I wouldn’t think!

  • Jainine McAlister: may I humbly refer you to my answer to esteemed Aoun?

    Ok then. I think Aoun, whose first name is probably Rafqa, and who with a name like that is probably of Marionite origins, was much wiser than me by declining to keep feeding an obvious troll.

    So I’ll just quote her perfect reply to your “charming” response to her very moderate reproach:

    I am sure you don’t, Tatyana, so feel free to keep digging that hole you are standing in deeper if you wish to further validate the title of the original article.

  • Alice

    Time for me to interject a meandering story about the indominitable spark deep in the human soul, female or male.

    A young lady I worked with in a certain Middle East country was a not-very-observant Lebanese Muslim, gifted with a body which would have turned Ms. Fakih’s eyes green with envy. She had been educated in the West, and was quite accustomed to males drooling in her general direction. She loved to dress in ways that did not hide her remarkable beauty. And in this particular Muslim country, since she was foreigner, that was tolerated. But, as a Muslim, the Powers That Be insisted she cover her lovely dark silky hair. Which, with some reluctance, she did.

    But when we worked at the weekends, and the dress police were less active, she would show up with her hair demurely covered — with a long flowing red wig, which set off the color of her skin perfectly!

    Human beings. Got to love them.

  • Fortunately, the majority of people on the American Right are nowhere near as insane as Debbie Schlussel. All of her so-called “sources” lead back to her own posts on hers and other blogs. What other few bloggers, usually relatively unknown ones, also post in agreement with this, also use Schlussel’s rants as their source, or at least their major one. It’s hard to imagine anyone can be this stupid. I even wonder if she meant it as satire, but unfortunately I think she’s really serious and trying to make a name for herself as a hard-hitting courageous investigative journalist-as opposed to what she’s actually accomplished, making a fool of herself.

  • Laird

    After checking out RW’s link, I’m betting that pole dancing will become an Olympic event within the next 10 years! It would certainly get more attention than ordinary gymnastics (or, pardon the mention, rhythmic gymnastics!).

    More seriously, what an extraordinary thread this has become! From a light-hearted jab at Hezbollah to radical feminist theory in 55 posts. Something clearly touched a nerve for Tatyana; I don’t recall ever seeing her quite so apoplectic before. One gets the sense that she is going to need to give her monitor a serious cleaning and get a new keyboard.

    My thought is that the world would be a much better place with more sluts and fewer suicide bombers and jihadists. But that’s just me.

  • I’ve really enjoyed this slanging match. This is Gabriel going off on one territory. I’m vaguely amazed Tatyana hasn’t been smited here for the continual use of “Dirty Arab Slut”. Debbie is clearly also raving. I for one would much rather Hezbollah tried to corner the market in beauty queens than blow the sh’ite out of stuff.

  • Laird,
    my thought exactly! (re: Olympic sport); although I dare say they do the same and better in circuses around the globe for a millenia – and the costumes are sparklier, too.

    So, you think I’m a radical feminist, do you? And that I’m particularly offended by a primitive ranting of JanB (let alone the second- and third- row character roles in a background?)

    What else?

    Give me more to laugh about, Liard – I’m collecting stupid definitions sent my way in 6 years of blogging; so far the winner is someone accusing me simultaneously of suffering PMS and being post-menopausal – can you top that? Actually, you’re a good contender, what with your hint that I should wipe semen from my kboard and monitor – you do realize I’m a woman, don’t you?

    Remarkable inability to perceive the tone, Liard: I’m having a good time while you think I’m “apoplectic”…

    So long

  • michael farris

    I’m a little suprised that Miss Fakih won a beauty pageant. She’s certainly physically attractive enough, but she also projects a kind of spontaneous sensual vitality that seems at odds with traditional beauty pageant winners.

    As for reports of her being a hezbollah supporter (and/or related to same), the main (only?) source seems to be Debbie Schussel and her main source seems to be her own posts. I tried following some of her links and they always led back to her.

    I’ll reserve judgement on her ties to hezbollah until the time they can be proven (by someone who links to credible information and not only their own previous posts). I have an open mind about the possibility, but I do believe in “innocent until proven guilty”.

    I find Tatyana’s uncritical acceptance of Schussel’s unsupported (AFAICT) accusations and the venom she’s spitting at this young woman to be pretty distasteful. I have the impression that even if Schussel hadn’t written anything she’d still hate her because she’s (nominally) a muslim arab.

  • of course, michael farris, you had to join in the chorus. I would be surprised if you didn’t.

    to clarify: I don’t hate the slut. no more than any other booty shaker/pole climber.
    but the stink – yeah, the arab stink annoys me.

    and just try to tell me I have reason.

  • John Dacre

    yeah, the arab stink annoys me.

    Which means you can be safely ignored along with the various other obsessive racist scum found on the internet.

  • jdm

    what with your hint that I should wipe semen from my kboard and monitor

    Well, this is…, um, weird.

  • I think everyone in this conversation needs to take on board the fact that Tatyana is batshit insane.

  • I got smited for quoting on of Tatyana’s lines of racist invective. Oh dear.

    Tatyan I think it was more spittle de-flecking your screen might need.

    Tatyana, since when have you imagined me as a member of a chorus? I’m usually an acapella soloist who finds it hard, an annoyiung, to harmonize with others. (Alternately I’m a dissonant oboe playing another song than the rest of the orchestra).

    “I don’t hate the slut”

    Your definition of ‘slut’ is a lot stricter (and harsher) than mine. BNy current standards, those pictures are no proof of slutdom. Yeah, I found audio clips of her sounding a bit more ghetto than I prefer, but again by current standards nothing that outrageous.

    “but the stink – yeah, the arab stink annoys me”

    Just particular arabs or all arabs (including those you’ve never met)?

    “and just try to tell me I have reason.”

    I wouldn’t dream of telling you that your malice is justified.

  • Ok I think we are done here and and in addition Tatyana has worn out her welcome on Samizdata.net.
