After I wrote a blog post about the dhimming down of “the elite blogs” on their coverage of Islam, iOTW was excoriated in the comments at other blogs, particularly the ones I cited in the post, as delusional and paranoid.
Weasel Zippers readers took umbrage with my characterization that Zip was corporatizing his site, which meant that his editorializing was going to get a makeover.
I repeatedly said that WZ has every right to do whatever he wants, including making money. HE RUNS A GREAT SITE. One of the best. I like it. What I don’t like are whisper campaign that Atlas needs to be shunted off the landscape because “she makes the right look bad.”
People said I was full of excrement in making that statement and trying to tie it to Zip. Then Robert Spencer came along and published the e-mails between him and Zip showing that an actual conversation of this sort took place. But BigFurHat is “delusional.”
Ace of Spades routinely writes posts about Pamela Geller that are nothing but personal attacks from a self-described social cripple, and then his readers chime in with their echoing – whore, slut, crazy, shrill, Jew, harpy etc. It’s impressive what parrots can learn from their awkward master.
We reported a direct quote from Jessie Malkin – “We won’t link Atlas Shrugs on Twitchy.”
But this is all unsubstantiated speculation and delusion.
Well, just today, Matt Drudge linked to a CBS story about Geller’s Islamorealism ads running in Westchester County, NY. He linked about 5:20pm and the story was abruptly pulled at 6:30 pm.
All of the nitwits on AoS interpreted my blogpost as a “why doesn’t anyone link to Atlas?” whinefest. Of course, that is not what I was saying at all. My post can be summed up this way -
Am I whining ,”why doesn’t Drudge link to Atlas?”, or am I asking, “Why does Drudge link to a story about Atlas and then pull it within an hour?”
I’m sure this doesn’t concern morons. It probably never concerned any morons in Europe, either.
I’ll leave you with this:
147 What difference does it make if ace doesn’t blog about jihad? What difference does it make if Geller and Spencer do blog about it? Neither Spencer or Geller advocate doing anything about it, they talk here and there about limiting immigration and that’s it. So let them blog about it everyday, they’re never going to have the traffic they used to. Two reasons, most conservative blog followers know all about Islam by now and second, what’s the point of reading about it everyday if you don’t have any idea what to do about it. -AoS reader
Go back to sleep, pal. You have no idea what is going on.
