Has anyone ever seen or heard Alex Seitz-Wald of Salon rail against, pummel, and smear the devout jihadists who slaughter in the name of Islam? Has anyone ever heard him apply even the most remote standard of humanity to those committing holy war in the cause of Islam? Ever heard him denounce the sharia that brutally subjugates women and non-Muslims? Me neither.
And yet from his airless chamber, he fashions himself morally superior. Do these self-important clowns ever catch a cold hard glimpse of themselves in a mirror? We ought to stage an intervention for these hapless, ego-mad scribblers.
Today, Alex Seitz-Wald takes issue with Robert Spencer and me for defending ourselves against the onslaught of libel, misrepresentation of our ideas, smears and lies. It is wickedly funny. This spineless, gutless wonder whines about how mean we are.
It’s hard to imagine that I have scared my critics into silence — you mean there would be more daily attacks on my character, cred and body of work? But there are only 24 hours in the day.
Seitz-Wald claims that we “want the First Amendment to work only in their favor.” Uh, wrong. I only want the First Amendment to work. Period. I want to be able to run my ads without having to file six-figure First Amendment lawsuits. I want to speak and not get canceled. I want a scintilla of truth to be reported about the work I do. Just for starters, we are anti-jihad, not anti-Muslim. No matter how many tens of thousands of posts, columns and books I write to the contrary or how many Muslim girls we help get to safe houses — these tools propagandize and carry water for the most notorious Islamic supremacists. Seitz-Wald shills for the most brutal and extreme ideology on the face of the earth and he is pulling moral superiority. What he lacks in spine and guts he compensates for in cojones.
Calling on the media to be accurate is an insult to their craft. And when I defend myself and pointedly expose their agenda, that whole ship of fools starts bawlin’. Whaaaaaaaaaaaa.
