Update: Under Fire Spencer Loses His Cool: “F**k CAIR!”

Part Two of Robert Spencer and the "Hate URLs" Saga

Under Fire Islamophobe Turns on the Nasty

[Catch up on PART I and PART II of this series]

OK, grab your popcorn and grab a seat. The Robert Spencer freak circus continues to unravel with comical twists and turns.

Spencer first attempted to lay low on the latest revelation that LoonWatch broke out on the blogosphere concerning two hateful URLs, “f**kislam.com” and “f**kallah.com” redirecting to his trashy website, JihadWatch.org.

The redirection magically disappeared hours after LoonWatch busted JihadWatch without a peep from Spencer.

It seems now after LoonWatch turned on the pressure with a follow up piece, Spencer has finally broken his silence with an exegesis in logic that is bound to put the vulgar associations he hopes to absolve himself from beyond any reasonable doubt.

Are you ready?

Drum Roll!

“F**k CAIR.”

That’s right, you read correctly.

Now, you tell me, why would anyone in their right mind think of associating this charming man with vulgarities like “f**kislam.com and “f**kallah.com”?

“I have never engaged in such tactics and do not approve of them,” says Spencer with a straight face in the SAME post whose headline is “F**k CAIR.”

Let us take a moment of silence as we bask in the irony.

Ok, moving on.

In this latest JihadWatch rant, Spencer pops a cap whining about libel while simultaneously flinging baseless accusations and obscenities at his critics.

Ok sorry, let us take another moment of silence as we bask in this irony.

Ok.

Spencer seems to have buckled under pressure and has come out of character. Gone is the cool-calm-objective-scholar act, and out pops the bottled anger and potty-mouthed vengefulness bubbling beneath the phony surface. He goes on to showcase the slimy tactics he employs in his treatment of all things Muslims. Exhibit A: lying…

(CAIR) has claimed in its “American Muslim News Briefs” email that I own the domains f***allah.com and f***islam.com and have redirected them to Jihad Watch.

That’s a flat out lie,  one of many lies Spencer tries to slip to his unsuspecting readers who are accustomed to drinking from the cusp of his hands.

In fact, CAIR claimed no such thing. CAIR did not even opine on the issue any which way. CAIR simply carried a story from LoonWatch – without edit or commentary – as it does from hundreds of other websites across the World Wide Web based on what it perceives to be relevance to its mostly Muslim leadership.

Now I do not agree with everything CAIR says, but I have respect for CAIR.

They do a lot of great work to fight hatred and Islamophobia, but let’s not give them undue credit on this one, Mr. Spencer.

It was LoonWatch – proudly so – who broke the story in which it shared the undisputed fact that indeed those sites do redirect to Spencer’s JihadWatch.org and then proceeded to raise the obvious questions that any sane person remotely familiar with Spencer’s work would ask as a direct result of this revelation.

LoonWatch questioned the possibilities including, but not limited to, the possibility that Spencer is knowingly involved in the scheme. But it also raised the possibility that a third party (term used was “vandal”) redirected the URL’s. Of those possibilities, I gave my opinion which I am entitled to do. I then called on Spencer to speak out and lay all doubts to rest and – if as far removed from the scheme as he is likely to claim – then to do the honorable thing, to disavow and apologize for those redirections.

(Notice despite his rant, that is something he has yet to do.)

How that translates to libel, let alone from CAIR, is a question that can only be answered in the deranged mind of trigger-happy Robert Spencer.

The notion that he would claim to have no connection to the URL’s and moreover play the victim is no surprise to me.

What remains suspicious is his continued refusal to do the honorable thing most civilized folk in his situation would do, express shock and dismay at the linkage, and distance himself from the hate message of the URLs.

Mr. Spencer, O’ Objective scholar of Islam, Why the reluctance to come out and condemn those URL’s as vile, vulgar, and hateful to Islam and Muslims?

Instead, Spencer misdirects his rage at the whistleblowers and anyone else who dared to question the linkage. As if, given Spencer’s long history of rabid hatemongering against Islam and Muslims, questioning his involvement in such a scheme is a far-fetched proposition.

What is amusing about the whole episode is Spencer’s feigned outrage that a Muslim organization – whose stated mission mind you is to battle Islamophobia – would carry an article scrutinizing the shady affairs of one of America’s leading Islamophobes.

Shocking!

Why, Muslim organizations fighting Islamophobia should be carrying stories about Irish Leprechauns, Amish quilts, and Danish Cookies. But Islamophobia? Why would they think to do that?

In Spencer’s objective scholarly mind, such action only proves that CAIR is “a desperate, dishonest, and pathetic Hamas-linked unindicted conspirator Islamic supremacist thug.”

Can you see it? Come on now, it’s pretty obvious guys, can’t you connect the dots like a spinster can?

No? Well then pray for the drones out there who are duped into believing that this guy is an unbiased source of information on Islam and Muslims.

As for LoonWatch, disclosing the fact that Spencer is anything but an objective scholar of Islam earns us the title “leftist pro-jihad hate” website.

Ok, what’s wrong with leftist, does Spencer submit to a fascist agenda that prefers that all Americans be on one side of the political spectrum – say, the right?

And pro-Jihad? Does our great scholar of Islam engage in schoolboy fumbling of the definition of Jihad, a most basic Islamic concept? Does he not understand that for Muslims, Jihad is not defined the way he intends it as a slur? That it is defined as a struggle towards greater good, not violence and extremism as both the crazy loons at Al Qaeda and the crazy loons at JihadWatch define it?

As for hate, that is a term usually applied in a mass context, in other words to describe sentiment towards a class of people not an individual, i.e. the KKK’s hate against Blacks, the Nazi hate against Jews, the JihadWatch hate against Muslims, etc. For Spencer to call us a hate site for criticizing his individual work is absurd and self-absorbed. We do not hate you Spencer, we think you are funny.

Meanwhile, in another deep dark corner of the Islamophobic blogosphere, certified loon Pamela Geller, one of Spencer’s last remaining friends (visible in the above photo), has come to his rescue. In a wonderful display of reactionary shrill, she went ahead and registered fuckcair.com and redirected it to her gem of a website, Atlas shrugs. Ah, we love it when the loons get caught up in their own absurdity!

A final word:

The ultimate irony in this whole crazy episode is the realization that those who often propose racist and absurd generalizations about Muslims under the pretense of Freedom of Speech (read: Robert Spencer, Michael Savage, etc) are quick to whine and cry about others excercizing their own right to Freedom of Speech to expose and criticize their fraudulence. They are then quick to shriek “bloody libel” and threaten their critics.

As such, their trumping up of themselves as some kind of “defenders of freedom” is as hollow and absurd as the intellectually-bankrupt commentary they spew forth for a living – and a handsomely-paid one at that.

    Assalamualaikum, Peace Be Unto You,

    I thank God whenever I can for leading me to this site =D

    Down with Loons,
    Peace out.

    You guys have been on the ball lately!

    Loonwatch keep it up!

  • iSherif

    American Crusaders, your comment was probably the greatest FAIL in commenting history ever…you’re just a racist boo-hoo who’s now resorting to playground tactics and cheap threats since all else has failed…prejudice is always a loser’s game son, so I suggest you take a hike and stop being such a silly bigot.

  • CrusadersAlwaysDefeatedAskSaladin

    Before I begin I’d like to tell readers that they can read “Liars for Jesus” free, at the website below. This book details how the Christian Right like the poster I’m addressing tries to falsfiy US history.

    American Crusaders

    LOL, you lost the war in Iraq, sank the country in debt, got your ass kicked into the dustbins of history and still dream of a Christian US? I guess you need to learn how Crusaders always fall when trying to steal what isn’t theirs.

    The US was NOT founded on Christian principles, it was created precisely because Europe was Christian. After the US was created and it flourished as it was secular, so Europe became secular. You Christian Fundamentalists took America back to where it was 300 yrs ago. That’s why you were booted out of the White house in Nov 08. Never to get in again. Evangelism is declining in the USA. 4 million Evangelicals have converted to Islam, and others go atheist. Anyway, about the secular consititution, read the books below.

    The US Constitution never once mentions a deity, because the Founding Fathers wanted to keep their new country “religion-neutral.” The Founding Fathers were an eclectic collection of Atheists, Deists, Christians, Freemasons and Agnostics.

    George Washington, and John Adams (Second President of the USA) CLEARLY stated in the 1796 Treaty of Tripoli: “The Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian Religion.”

    G.W. rarely attended church and instead followed a popular 18th century philosophy called Deism—a Star Wars-esque philosophy that believed in a cosmic energy or big-ass universal “Force.” The dictionary says that Deism is “a system of thought advocating natural religion based on human reason rather than revelation,” that had nothing to do with Christian principles.

    James Madison, mastermind of the Constitution, was an Atheist to the core who loved skewering Christianity. In 1785 he wrote, “What have been [Christianity’s] fruits? More or less in all places, pride and indolence in the Clergy, ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution.”

    Thomas Jefferson, who sat down and authored The Declaration of Independence, rarely missed an opportunity to laugh at Christianity. In a letter to John Adams in 1823, he wrote: “The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus…will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter.”

    In 1814, Tommy J. wrote about the Bible’s Old and New Testaments, “The whole history of these books is so defective and doubtful — evidence that parts have proceeded from an extraordinary man; and that other parts are of the fabric of very inferior minds.”

    In fact, it was President Jefferson himself who first wrote (to a Baptist church group in 1802), “The First Amendment has erected a wall of separation between Church and State.” Therefore, when Jefferson talked about “Nature’s God,” the “Creator” and “divine Providence ” in the Declaration that he wrote, he was being a hippie and referring to a general cosmic energy– not the Christian God.

    America is not a Christian nation. Period. Our Constitution derived from the post-Christian Enlightenment values of reason and truth

    Little-Known U.S. Document Signed by President Adams Proclaims America’s Government Is Secular

    http://www.earlyamerica.com/review/summer97/secular.html
    A few Christian fundamentalists attempt to convince us to return to the Christianity of early America, yet according to the historian, Robert T. Handy, “No more than 10 percent– probably less– of Americans in 1800 were members of congregations.” The Founding Fathers, also, rarely practiced Christian orthodoxy

  • FG

    “Does he not understand that for Muslims, Jihad is not defined the way he intends it as a slur?” nodear honourable guys, that IS brazenly dishonest and plain factually flawed to claim! Hence, you have no credibility from this point on… Good night!

  • American Crusaders

    Muslims are not fooling all of us who are good old fashioned Americans. We know our heritage, our nation was based on the principles of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We know all of islam is our real enemy. There is no such thing as radicals…all muslims are the enemy.

    There are more of us banding together than you know…and we will expose and destroy your false religion. mohammed was a murderer and a liar. Jesus Christ is the true RISEN saviour…while mohammed remains irrelavent dead and in the grave.

  • Ryan

    Wonder how long before Spencer completely implodes.

  • F*cking hilarious! And good fact checking as well.

    Actually, you guys here are doing such a good job that I must just start redirecting my URL to THIS site! I have been bested here. I will, of course, stick around to make goofy photoshops though.

    Pam Geller and her bearded girlfriend Robert Spencer need some medical evaluation as soon as possible. Both of them are devoured by hate. Must be a painful life to live like that.

  • iSherif

    +3 for the good guys… 🙂

    Spencer is the quintessential representation of everything that is wrong with the world, he is hypocrisy with a big fat cigar. The guy spends half his time accusing his critics of ‘spouting taqiyya’ and the other half shading the truth just so he can dupe his gullible flock…what a farce…the man needs to be spanked by his mother!

  • HGG

    It’s the same thing that happened when Charles Johnson started exposing Spencer’s unsavory friendships. He yelled “LIES!!” “LIBEL!!”

    Talking about CAIR, perhaps Loonwatchh could do an article about the guy who believes is some sort of anti-Muslim 007 and wrote a book published by World Nut Daily.

  • sandy

    I am liking this CAIR group.

  • James

    “Trying to say that there is nothing wrong for Spencer to register FuckIslam.com and then linking to his own site?”

    Exactly. Of course those were Spencer’s website! He sees no problem with it. He’s not man enough to admit it though.

  • Tikun_Salaam76

    Thank you. Peace is needed on this earth so the sons of man can live up to their image which was created in the image of G-d. RS and JiWatch are clearly opposed to peace and true understanding, a stance which is opposed to the true spiritual essence of all Faiths. They are overtaken by the narrowness of dogma, how shall it be when the Creator takes account of their deeds?

  • Danios

    One more thing: Pamela Geller registering FuckCair.com and making it link to her own site shows that the Islamophobes like Spencer are not averse to doing things like that. I really don’t know what Pam was thinking by doing that, lol? Trying to say that there is nothing wrong for Spencer to register FuckIslam.com and then linking to his own site?

  • Danios

    Keep in mind that FuckIslam.com linked to JihadWatch.org just as DhimmiWatch.org does. What’s the difference?

  • anti-Corporation

    LW: 3, Spencer: 0

    Robert is a crock, I think they should give him a chair at Bob Jones University or something, something along the lines of “Pope Urban II chair of Heathen Islamic Studies.”

  • Brilliant.

    Carry on the good work.

    This is better than brilliant, thanks to CAIR for the extra publicity.

    Game, Set, Match

  • BeachVolleyball

    hard hitting deconstruction of the ways of the Islamophobes. Thanks LW. Just one thing, would have been great to throw some focus on the crazy hate going on in the comments section of Spencer’s post responding to this issue. Like teacher like student:

    Examples:

    “mohammed is a Pedophile, misogynist, murderer, liar, maniac, thief, parasite etc”

    Calling a Muslim sounding commenter on JihadWatch “Slave” and hitting him with the racist remark, “ go pound sand,” etc.

  • Ustadh

    Robert Spencer cracked. I don’t think he understands his own contradictory nature or just doesn’t care as long as the dollars keep coming in from David Horowitz and company. Good work, Spencer’s feet are to the fire!

  • mallorcaman

    slam dunk for LoonWatch! I am loving this site more and more each day.
