The Stoner Pundit

Choose you're own slogan for this site, because I'm too stoned to figure one out: Higher Discourse for Higher Minded People. cool. way cool. Last week's news reported to you tomorrow. I'm fairly combative for a pothead. I've found a friend in weed. Pothead slackers unite! Because being a pothead is way better for society than being a loser meth addict.

Couldn't have said it better

Via the beautiful Michelle Malkin-

MANIFESTO: Together facing the new totalitarianism

After having overcome fascism, Nazism, and Stalinism, the world now faces a new totalitarian global threat: Islamism.

We, writers, journalists, intellectuals, call for resistance to religious totalitarianism and for the promotion of freedom, equal opportunity and secular values for all.

The recent events, which occurred after the publication of drawings of Muhammed in European newspapers, have revealed the necessity of the struggle for these universal values. This struggle will not be won by arms, but in the ideological field. It is not a clash of civilisations nor an antagonism of West and East that we are witnessing, but a global struggle that confronts democrats and theocrats.

Like all totalitarianisms, Islamism is nurtured by fears and frustrations. The hate preachers bet on these feelings in order to form battalions destined to impose a liberticidal and unegalitarian world. But we clearly and firmly state: nothing, not even despair, justifies the choice of obscurantism, totalitarianism and hatred. Islamism is a reactionary ideology which kills equality, freedom and secularism wherever it is present. Its success can only lead to a world of domination: man's domination of woman, the Islamists' domination of all the others. To counter this, we must assure universal rights to oppressed or discriminated people.

We reject cultural relativism, which consists in accepting that men and women of Muslim culture should be deprived of the right to equality, freedom and secular values in the name of respect for cultures and traditions. We refuse to renounce our critical spirit out of fear of being accused of "Islamophobia", an unfortunate concept which confuses criticism of Islam as a religion with stigmatisation of its believers.

We plead for the universality of freedom of expression, so that a critical spirit may be exercised on all continents, against all abuses and all dogmas.

We appeal to democrats and free spirits of all countries that our century should be one of Enlightenment, not of obscurantism.

BREAKING NEWS: The Stoner Pundit Offers Bounty on Pakistani Cleric

I, the one and only Stoner Pundit, place a bounty on the head of Pakistani cleric Mohammed Yousaf Qureshi of Peshawar, in the amount of 5 million American dollars*.

“This is a unanimous decision by the Stoner Pundit that whoever on earth is this stupid deserves to be killed and whoever will take this insulting man to his end, will get this prize".

*This will be payable only if the cleric is killed and I am the unanimous winner of this Saturday's Powerball drawing. Otherwise, the bounty is reduced to $5.

U.N. draft: Acts 'amounting to torture' at Guantanamo


I can predict exactly what the report will not say. It will not say that the prisoners of Guantanamo are without food, without Korans, without access to health care. Most importantly it will not say that any of the prisoners has been beheaded. There's a war going on here. These people were captured on the battlefield, most likely with weapons. They're not good guys. They're the bad guys. They're the ones who would just as easily bomb the UN as the US. They don't care for modern civilization and they will lie in every way possible to make the US and the West look bad. Case closed.

UPDATE: How about a UN report on how Christians are treated in Saudi Arabia? LINK
I'm sure you won't see that. Dr. Sanity talked recently in a blog post about "Guilt" cultures and "Shame" cultures, HERE.

We're a guilt culture and the Saudis are shame culture. So we make more of our mistakes while the Saudis seek to deflect theirs by blaming someone else, which is us. Our treatment of Muslims in this country can't even compare to the crimes they commit against humanity. Yet, they blame the US, so that we internalize and then fail to point out that the Saudis have much more to be blamed for.

So, if one were to think for a second... How exactly does a country like Saudi Arabia, become almost 100 percent Muslim? History has shown us that there were many Jewish and Christian tribes and cities in the area. Different people when given a choice on an issue will almost never make 100% the same choice. If given the choice between Coca Cola and Tab, invariably some people would choose Tab.

How then does a society become 100 percent Muslim, when there were other religions in the area? Everywhere else in the world that this has come close to occurring, it often involves the cleansing of a population. Hmmm. So is it possible that the Saudis and other Muslims in the area have killed off (read: genocide) or terrorized (read: terrorized) the other religious populations?

Duh. I don't know.

Area Muslims decry Bok cartoon (AKRON)

LINK (via Michelle Malkin)

OH MY GOD! Do we have to deal with these idiots on everything? First of all, the cartoon isn't lampooning Islam or the prophet Mohammed. It's lampooning CNN and a supposedly free press. Secondly, I think the next statement says it all:

The editorial cartoon has prompted several letters in response. Also on Friday afternoon, there was a demonstration outside of the newspaper's East Exchange Street building.

Several letters? And we have a major controversy? Wow. Let's not give in too easy to these fucks. I'm like why don't we just make the whole country Muslim friendly in every way that can be accomodated, so that maybe they don't start suicide bombing restaurants and coffeehouses. Let's invite Bin Laden right to the dinner table.

Muslim leaders said Bok's cartoon was disrespectful because the prophet should not have been depicted in such a way. In fact, they said, there are no pictures or statues of Muhammad because he should not be confused with God.

Are we really going to surrender to people this stupid? The guy doesn't even know his own religion. A picture of the prophet Mohammed's face is not allowed by the Wahabibists. If you look in art you will find many instances where Mohammed's body is displayed, but his face is whited out. If you don't know what his face looks like you don't know what he looks like.

Should we just rollover right now to them? Or should we at least wait until we have dozens of letters? Maybe then we can get a better deal, you know?

Cheney accidentally shoots fellow hunter


I've never fired a gun. Despite all of that I've thought of joining the NRA. We should have the right to choose. If I so choose to buy a gun, I definitely don't want to go hunting with Vice President Cheney. Fucker's dangerous.

I'm kind of interested what kind of hay the Left will make of this. Was it really conspiracy to off someone that went bad? Was this lawyer really a Democrat? Will the Left use this to say, "Hey you're not for gun control, but you can't even control your gun." I'm sure there'll be some scandal. Can't wait to read each scandal.

RUMOR UPDATE: The guy who got shot was overheard saying "Republicans are assholes" right before being shot by the VP. WOOHOO YEAH! (Just my sarcasm. Sure that's what happened.)

Great Comment

Comment #35 from Little Green Footballs:

If someone was to put up a statue of Mohammed, would Muslims tear it down and destroy it, or would the tearing down and destroying also be an afront to the Prophet?

Interesting question. Heh.

Joke Of The Day

Got any dirty pictures of Mohammed?

Want some?

Cartoon War: My Solution

From Little Green Footballs
Omar Bakri Mohammed, the radical Muslim cleric, has said the cartoonist behind caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed that have sparked outrage across the Arab world should be tried and executed under Islamic law.

He said if countries refused to put people on trial for insulting Mohammed they must “face the consequences”.

My solution is simple, very simple. It goes against many of our standing Western traditions, but I'm willing to do that for world peace, love, and harmony. With my solution we'll all be able to hold hands together and pick flowers in the grass.

So here it is: I, citizen of a Western democracy will make no effort to offend your Islamic God(s), countries, or prophets. In return you Islamic citizens of mostly totatalitarian states will make no effort to offend my Western God(s), countries, or prophets. Thus in doing so I will turn over anyone who offends your fragile Muslim sensibilities, whether by word or artistic expression. You in turn will turn over anyone who offends our Western sensibilities by word or artistic expression. Thus, I agree to turn over the cartoonists, if you in turn will turn over every Muslim who has ever shouted "Death To America" (or any Western country for that matter) and every Muslim who has ever burned the flag or embassy of a Western country.

You see I can understand our Western offense and how it affects you and your co-religionists. You must also understand that I, even as Western kafir infidel, I have feelings also. My religion is liberty and freedom (and reason)for all, which is embodied by the soul of my country, the United States of America. When you burn my flag or shout death to my country it greatly offends me. So please be nice. We don't have to have stupid shouting matches or embassy burnings to come to a mutual understanding of our differences.

I'm Back With "The Death to Islam" Cartoon Contest

I've been off for a while. I've just started smoking weed again after a semi-long respite. It's a good to get off now and then to change thinking now and then, but it's also nice when I'm back on the stuff for a little while. So much has happened.

The extermination is on it's way? You don't have to go far on the internet to find pictures and statements like those in the picture above. I read somewhere that Palestinians in Gaza were praising their brother Osama Bin Laden in hopes that he would destroy Denmark. I would provide links, but if you do a simple search on Google or hit the
or Little Green Footballs or other sites, you'll find the information. Read what the militant Islamofascists have to say. All of this because of a few cartoons. If they'll kill people over this, they'll willingly kill all of us over any reason they can think of. So in defense of tolerance and reason, I say "Death to Islam!". Or at least the militant assholes of Islam.

Christopher Hitchens at Slate had this to say:

Which is what taboos are for. Islam makes very large claims for itself. In its art there is a prejudice against representing the human form at all. The prohibition on picturing the prophet—who was only another male mammal—is apparently absolute. So is the prohibition on pork or alcohol or, in some Muslim societies, music or dancing. Very well then, let a good Muslim abstain rigorously from all these. But if he claims the right to make me abstain as well, he offers the clearest possible proof of an aggressive intent. This current coexistence is only an interlude, he seems to say. For the moment, all I can do is claim to possess absolute truth and demand absolute immunity from criticism. But in the future, you will do what I say and you will do it on pain of death.

I refuse to be spoken to in that tone of voice, which as it happens I chance to find "offensive." ( By the way, hasn't the word "offensive" become really offensive lately?) I, too, have strong convictions and beliefs, and value the Enlightenment above any priesthood or sacred fetish-object. It is revolting to me to breathe the same air as wafts toward me the exhalations of the madrasahs, or the fumes of the suicide-murderers, or the sermons of Billy Graham and Joseph Ratzinger. But these same principles of mine also prevent me from wreaking random violence on the nearest church, or kidnapping a Muslim at random and holding him hostage, or making a moronic spectacle of myself threatening blood and fire to individuals who have hurt my feelings. The babyish rumor-fuelled tantrums that erupt all the time, especially in the Islamic world, show yet again that faith belongs to the spoiled and selfish childhood of our species.

Concise and to the point, Jeff Goldstein at Protein Wisdom says:

Translation: “Free speech is good so long as it tolerates our right, as an identity group, to dictate which free speech is authentic and allowable. Otherwise, y’know, we get to torch shit.”
With all of the furor over the Danish cartoons, I thought I'd create one of my own and see if other bloggers out there will join me in lampooning the stupid ideology of Islam. I understand that the cartoons in question were offensive to the feeble minds of many Muslims. I understand why they would be upset. It's okay to be offended. It's okay to be upset. It's not okay to threaten the rest of the world with massacres because someone drew a picture of your religion's psychopathic leader. It's not okay to commit violence just because someone offended you and your fragile mental state. Well... I guess it's okay if you're Muslim. Then it's definitely okay.

So if you create a cartoon please leave a link to your blog in the comments section. I may even post the best on this blog. My cartoon is below. I call it "The Prophet Mohammed Gets Head From Pam Anderson".

Are we in the midst of watching the Muslim world destroy itself?

I was hoping the "Islam vs the West" would mostly be a cold war (where eventually hearts and minds could be won), with small interventions here and there, but it now looks like we are well on our way to a very hot war. A war that may result in the death of hundreds of millions of people. The question that comes to my mind is always about the use of WMD. What happens after Bin Laden or Iran or Pakistan or some other muslim group uses a nuke or nukes? I don't believe we will just step aside and say "Oh, that's okay we're just going to let them get away with it." I think our retalliation will be swift and unforgiving. Perhaps even leading the extermination of Islam and its adherents. As always I hope I'm wrong on this. I hope that we can live peaceably in this world.
