"The truth will out," as they say. Check out this little whoopsie from an apologist for Islam writing in the Urban Dictionary:
Contrary to what right wing jew-christian-athiest nut jobs say, its not some tatic to silence critism of islam. Muslims welcome critism of our religion all the time. please stop bringing up some nut job with a sign saying behead those who insult the prophet. that is not islam, thats not what muslims are about. The extremists are a very small majority in the muslim world....
Yeah, a "very small majority", indeed.
I left the crazy misspellings in for more flavor. Read the whole thing for a bigger laugh. Here's how he ends it:
So when you come to my house and vandilize it, dont tell me its freedom of speech because youre on my property and according to tje 2nd ammenment, i have a right to cap your sorry ass.
Uh, huh. Straight from the Religion of Peace.
What else can be concluded from the evidence presented by Ms. Malkin here? Excerpt:
Sexual vulgarity is a common theme in the left's self-styled "solidarity" movement. Among the Madison pro-union signs the national media chose not to show you: "Buttholes for Billionaires" (complete with a photo of Walker's head placed in the middle of a graphic photo of someone's posterior) and "If teabaggers are as hot as their Fox News anchors, then I'm here for the gang bang!!!"
Last month, GOP Lieutenant Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch was subjected to similar misogyny for her outreach efforts to private businesses. Liberal WTDY radio host John "Sly" Sylvester accused her of performing "fellatio on all the talk-show hosts in Milwaukee" and sneered that she had "pulled a train" (a crude phrase for group sex).
Yeah, rape is so funny. Demeaning a woman by calling her a whore is such a civil way to get your point across.
It gets worse on the next page of the piece.
At an AFSCME rally in Providence, R.I., on Tuesday, an unhinged pro-union supporter picked an unprovoked fight with a citizen journalist taping the event for public access TV. His eyes bulging, the brawler yelled: "I'll f**k you in the a**, you faggot!" After several unsuccessful minutes of trying to calm their furious ally down, the solidarity mob finally started chanting, "Hey, hey, ho, ho, union-busting's got to go" to drown out his intimidating vow to follow the cameraman outside the building. Criminal charges are now pending against him. None of the local media who covered the event thought to mention the disruption in their coverage.
The reason the media will not report on this behavior is two-fold. First, it makes their chosen side look bad. Secondly, it's not really news any more than kids splashing each other in the pool is news. This behavior is the norm for the creatures which they've become. The effect is that they are encouraged to persist in their beastly conduct.

But it would be nice if future research looked in detail at other parts of the college market. Another large study, for instance, has found that students who attend colleges with lower graduation rates are less likely to graduate — which does indeed have a huge effect on their earnings.
I read it several times, thinking that I must be missing something. But I'm not. Someone should remind David Leonhardt that engaging in high-risk behavior actually increases one's risk and the probability of an event is directly proportional to its likelihood of occurring. I'm guessing he already knows who's buried in Grant's tomb. No doubt he learned that in college.
