Portraying Muslims as peaceful, normal people on or around 9/11? Yep, that's an apologizin'.

In short, a paper ran a little human interest piece on what our friends The Muslims were up to for Ramadan. Which, of course, ended around 9/11 (scaring white people everywhere). The backlash from their readership was so great they actually apologized for not "balancing" the story.

Just reminding everyone how much hatred still exists.

Here is one of the responses I sent, which I believe covers a lot of ground:

"We are sorry you are offended by today’s front page photo and story and certainly understand your point of view. Many feel the same way. We do not offer the stock excuses you cite. We should have balanced this story with one that showed our sensitivity to today's historic importance. You will see tomorrow that our planned coverage of today's 9/11 events is extensive, far more so than the coverage of this event on Friday. We apologize for what may appear to be our insensitivity to the historic significance of this day. Tomorrow's newspaper will feature extensive coverage of the commemoration of today's events.
"Our editors believed that 3,000 persons marking the passage of a religious observance and congregating in Portland to do so was news.I believe that decision was correct but I also believe we should have handled it in a more sensitive way."

I would've went more with "Why don't you go stick your micro-cock into the rotten corpse of a duck and let your mother suck it off, you dipshit slime, and then drown yourself in your own feces, you cunt."

The sheer amount of bollocks being spewed by these people is practically justification for an attack - The lack of which is testament to the falsehood of their claims.

Because everyone is a xenophobe to a lesser or greater extent and can thus relate.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Hooray for the ass kissing media! Seriously, the article in question was about Ramadan, no? Which does end around this time every year if I'm not mistaken. Get over it. It's important to show these ignorant bastards that Islamic people on the whole aren't "evil" or anything.

If all Muslims are evil and we should be pissed off, shouldn't the Christians also hate on the Jews during Passover because they killed Jesus around then?

Ah **** it, let's all hate on everyone together, that way no one will feel bad about it or be left out! Yay! I love compromises!

people are willing to compromise their beliefs to cut a profit. print media is becoming obsolete, and they need to present things in a way that will maintain their viewer base, not decrease it.

It's by the Lunar calendar rather than the Gregorian calendar so it moves forward by 10 days every year. Good news: we won't have to deal with this next year. Bad news: In another 36 years...

I hope things have gotten better by then.

That's pretty crazy. I think I'm going to demand an apology from that newspaper for apologizing about that.


Let's see how many apologies we can string together.

I'm so complaining next Yom Kippur that the newspaper doesn't include pictures of of Jews torturing and murdering Jesus. Now that's what they should be repenting!

And, as a Messianic Jew, I'd raise you a complaint that it didn't show any Roman soldiers.
