X-Post: Donald Douglas - Reading Comprehension - 06/23/2011 Edition

Because sometimes, the urge to attack the individuals and groups one disagrees with and to portray them as eternally and unfailingly "eeeeevil" overwhelms the ability to pay enough attention to understand what the words and phrases mean, and actually get the story right.

Little Green Footballs blogger Charles Johnson, wrote:
"As I’ve said from the beginning of Wilders’ trial, it’s wrong to prosecute anyone for free expression, no matter how hateful and deranged that expression is.

But it’s sadly ironic that Wilders was acquitted of exactly the same kind of persecution he wants to impose on all Muslims; he often calls for the Koran to be banned, advocates that Islam should not be considered a religion at all, and explicitly advocates that Muslims be stripped of the rights of free speech and free religion.

This is the correct judgment by the Netherlands court, but Geert Wilders is no hero of free speech — he’s a slimy hate-monger, just like the American bloggers who worship him.
Having read what Charles Johnson posted, Donald Douglas responds:
"And EXTRA LULZ: Lizard Loser Charles Johnson is bummed that Wilders was acquitted: 'Dutch Hatemonger Geert Wilders Acquitted of Inciting Hatred.'"
