Fra vor egen verden.

“The Lame Street Media” opdager blogosfæren.

I takt med de traditionelle mediers hurtigt aftagende relevans må oplyste mennesker ty til blogosfæren for information. Denne blogosfære er snart ti år gammel, men tog for alvor fart efter angrebet på World Trade Center i 2001. Navnlig en enkelt blogger kunne med en vis ret siges at være primus moter i denne opblomstring, nemlig Charles Johnson – en venstreorienteret hippie-type med hestehale, programmeringsevne og hang til jazz og cykelsport. Han startede sin blog “Little Green Footballs” i forståelig protest mod mediernes blindhed for sammenhængen mellem terror og islam. Bloggen blev hurtigt et samlingssted og debatforum for den islam-skeptiske befolkning og inspirerede talløse andre til at oprette deres egne blogs.

Men så skete der noget. I efteråret 2007 samledes en lang række politikere, forfattere, historikere, meningsdannere og bloggere til en konference i Europaparlamentet i Bryssel. Man ville tale sammen om den tiltagende islamisering af den vestlige verden. Charles Johnson blev – som en selvfølge – inviteret, men svarede ikke og deltog altså ikke – i modsætning til bl.a Snaphanen og nærværende blogger (sagde musen). Ikke desto mindre begyndte Charles Johnson kort tid herefter en frådende smædekampagne mod alle sine tildligere meningsfæller. Fra næsten dag til anden så han nazister allevegne. Hele tiden. Enhver, der så meget som ytrede antydning af skepsis over for hans ny linie, blev omgående stemplet som nazist og forvist fra hans blog. Kun kommentatorer, der i et og alt var enige med Chuckles og indledte deres kommentarer med “Charles, you’re absolutely right” fik lov til at ytre sig. Med det resultat, at “Little Green Footballs” i dag er et tragikomisk rudiment af tidligere storhed. Et ekko-rum, hvor råbet “Charles, Charles befehl, Wir folgen” reverbererer i skingrende loonie-dur fra de tilbageværende lizards og moonbats.

I dag er Charles Johnson mindst lige så irrelevant som “The Lame Street Media”. Til gengæld er den øvrige blogosfære inde i en rivende udvikling og nu er det mere undtagelsen end reglen at nyheder, orientering og debat tager deres udspring i de traditionelle medier. Aviserne er døende, kort og godt. I denne deres dødskamp har de forsøgt at efterligne blogosfæren og oprettet noget, de selv tror er blogs. Det er de dog langtfra, al den stund en rigtig blog er fri og uafhængig. Avisernes “blobs” er censurerede – lige som alt redaktionelt stof. Kommentarer finder kun adgang i den udstrækning de passerer den politisk korrekte indvejning. Altså læserbreve om igen, blot på internettet.

Dog har disse Lame Street Media lige pludselig opdaget Charles. Han kan nemlig bruges i deres desperate overlevelseskamp mod det store flertal i befolkningerne som ikke køber islams lyksaligheder og dermed heller ikke aviser. Såldes er Charles nu inde i varmen igen, denne gang blot i redaktionslokalernes lummerhede. For eksempel i dansk presse, der bruger ham som sandhedsvidne til det møde, hvori han ikke deltog. Og som karaktermorder på personer han aldrig har mødt eller hørt om, før pressen fortalte ham om dem. Men sådan er danske journalister jo så fiffige…

Dansk presse har imidlertid et forbillede, nemlig den amerikanske avis “The New York Times”. Det var tidligere et hæderkronet blad, men har i lighed med andre døde træers medier skiftet etik og ligger derfor  nu også for døden. Ikke desto mindre er samme avis stadig først i rækken når dansk presse skal citere et eller andet fra udlandet. En slags autoritet for politisk korrekthed. Og se så bare, hvad “The Grey Lady” skriver om Charles Johnson:

….the long-term decline in L.G.F.’s traffic, which its detractors delight in pointing out, began almost exactly at the moment two years ago when Johnson started turning on his allies and banning skeptical readers.

….Johnson seems obsessed with what others think of him, posting much more often than he used to about references to himself elsewhere on the Internet and breaking into comment threads (a recent one was about the relative merits of top- versus front-loaded washing machines) to call commenters’ attention to yet another attack on him that was posted at some other site.

On the home page, you can click to see the Top 10 comments of the day, as voted on by registered users; typically, half of those comments will be from Johnson himself. Even longtime commenters have been disappeared for one wrong remark, or one too many, and when it comes to wondering where they went or why, a kind of fearful self-censorship obtains. He has banned readers because he has seen them commenting on other sites of which he does not approve. He is, as he reminds them, always watching.

L.G.F. still has more than 34,000 registered users, but the comment threads are dominated by the same two dozen or so names. And a handful of those have been empowered by Johnson sub rosa to watch as well — to delete critical comments and, if necessary, to recommend the offenders for banishment. It is a cult of personality.

Så nu er gode dyr altså rådne: “The New York Times” har lavet en “Charles Johnson” på dansk presse. Forladt af moar ligger den nu og vræler: I er allesammen nazister og rigtig, rigtig dumme, ja I er!Lad den ligge som den har redt…

Voldsom bestyrtelse i pressen, Ummah’en og på Parnasset.

Landet stander i våde. Manu Sareen fra De Radigale går pludselig ind for kvindefrigørende (sic.) og Zubair Butt Hussain fra Muslimernes Fællesråd mener, at det er De Vederstyggelige®, der stigmatiserer muslimerne, ikke dem selv. En Henriette Kjær fra Det Konserverede Fjolseparty mener at nok er nok (hvilket vi er enige i) og Villy Vendekåbe fra Waffen-SF slår påny fast, at islam er en race.

Postyret skyldes – også denne gang – form, ikke indhold. En pensioneret præst fra den Folkekirke som en vittig hund så rammende kalder SF i kjole og krave, har skrevet et læserbrev i Pravda fra Pilestræde. Det handler om Fredens Religion™ og dennes ritualer, sæder og skikke. Den slags  er ikke interessant for pressen. Det er derimod tonen. Kammertonen, De ved. Så denne lørdag er der følgelig stor ståhej hos kammerjunkerne i de helliges haller.

Af samme grund har pressen ikke tid til at bekæftige sig med det, som læserbrevet handler om, nemlig slam. Her på bloggen er vi knapt så behøvlede, så derfor vil Hodjas Blog vikariere med et kort nyhedsoverblik:

KHANEWALA couple was tortured to death in the name of honour killing in Tehsil Mian Chanu of Khanewal on Wednesday. According to police the honour killing incident occurred in 15-L, Tehsil Mian Chanu District Khanewal where Sonia and Haroon were tortured to death. The police said that Sonia 17, had earlier married to his cousin in Sahiwal against his desires some two years back however she later eloped with her paramour Haroon. Later family of Sonia called her back to home, deceiving her of arranging her marriage as per rituals. The[y] mislead couple to return back to village 15-L where relatives of Sonia including Shabeer, Amjad, Sharif, Imran, Asif, Shaukat, Allah Rakhi and Bao attacked them with batons and tortured them to death. The murderers later hanged the bodies of deceased with roof of their home and escaped from the scene. The police registering a case against the murderers have started search for them and during a raid culprit Shabeer was arrested while search for others was underway.

KARACHI: An eight-month pregnant woman, 26-year-old Fahima, was allegedly killed by her family in the name of honour on Wednesday. This is the first such incident in the current year. – According to the victim’s husband Gul Zamin, the couple had got married against their families’ wishes and eloped from Swabi to Karachi, where they had been hiding for the last six or seven years in fear of their lives. – According to details, Zamin’s wife and their five-year-old daughter were at their rented house in the slums of Mohammadi Colony when the culprits broke into the house and tortured Fahima; they escaped after stabbing her to death. According to Zamin, the victim’s father and brother – who had arrived in Karachi after a tip-off about Fahima’s presence in the city – were behind the incident.

Riyadh (AsiaNews/Agencies) A woman jailed after being raped could be lashed 100 times. Camille, an invented name, is a 35- year-old immigrant from the Philippines who has been in a Saudi jail since September 2009.  As a result of her rape, she became pregnant, but miscarried because of harsh prison life. – Under Saudi Arabia’s rigid application of Sharia or Islamic law, sexual relations outside of wedlock are strictly forbidden, irrespective of whether the woman is consenting or not. In fact, rape is punished in accordance with rules laid down in the Qur‘an. – The woman’s mother told her story in an interview with GMANews.Tv. Last spring, Camille went to Saudi Arabia to work in a dental clinic to support her 5-, 14- and 15-year-old children. In August, a co-worker from Bangladesh raped her. – Knowing that extra-marital relations are punishable under Saudi law, she did not go to the police to file charges, and tried instead to leave the country and return to the Philippines. – During a routine medical examination that expatriates must undergo before leaving, doctors found that she was pregnant. An arrest warrant was issued against her and on 11 September 2009, she was locked up in Hafer al Baten Central Jail. – Because of the generally harsh conditions in Saudi prisons, Camille miscarried last December.

Riyadh: The sentencing of a 75-year-old widow to 40 lashes and four months in prison for mingling with two young men who were reportedly bringing her bread has sparked new criticism of Saudi Arabia’s ultraconservative religious police and judiciary. – Khamisa Sawadi, who is Syrian but was married to a Saudi, was convicted and sentenced last week for meeting with men who were not her immediate relatives. The two men, including one who was Sawadi’s late husband’s nephew, were also found guilty and sentenced to prison terms and lashes.

(ANSAmed) – ANKARA – A 12-year-old girl from Corum, a village in central Anatolia not far from Ankara, has been sold twice by her father: the first time in exchange for four cows, and the second time for 10,000 Turkish lire (around 4,800 euros)

Rollespil i ægteskabet.

Muslimer har altid offerollen. Også når de skærer hovedet af konen.

Den fromme muslim, Muzzammil Hassan, som drev en from TV-station i USA, skar hovedet af konen og blev desværre slæbt for retten. Her forsvarer han sig med, at han blev ydmyget af hende, endda skældt ud. Desuden kom han til at skære sig i fingeren mens han savede  hovedet af hende. Under så svære livsbetingelser kan der kun blive tale om frifindelse…

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The founder of an Islam-oriented television station who is accused of beheading his wife was abused by her for years, according to his lawyer, who said Friday he will pursue a defense combining that justification as well as psychiatric claims.Defense attorneys’ claims that Muzzammil Hassan was victimized by his wife drew a blunt response from District Attorney Frank Sedita after a hearing Friday.

“He chopped her head off,” Sedita said. “He chopped her head off. That’s all I have to say about Mr. Hassan’s apparent defense that he was a battered spouse.”…

“The spouse was the dominant figure in this relationship,” attorney Frank Bogulski said outside the courtroom. “He was the victim. She was verbally abusive. She had humiliated him.” – Nancy Sanders, a former news director at Bridges TV, was skeptical of the abuse claim, noting the stocky Hassan stood over 6 feet tall and “filled a doorway,” while Aasiya was slender and several inches shorter.

“I never ever heard her disparage him in the workplace at all,” Sanders said. “It just did not seem to be in her nature. She was very gentle.”…
A comment at the Houston Chronicle’s posting of this AP story sums up Hassan’s defense: “I heard that even to the end the wife was abusing him. For example, the bones in her neck gave him some bad scratches while he was hacking her head off.” (Tip: Robert Spencer)
