The “truthers” have no serious arguments against what I’ve said in various articles critiquing them on this blog. Case in point is this piece about me by some Islamocuck truther girl named Jaci Stanton.
The entire article is bereft of any actual attempt at refuting what I say in my articles on truthers and their contradictions. Instead, she wrote a long autobiographical screed about how she became so favourable to Muslims after learning “the truth” about 9/11 and neocon-inspired wars. Throughout the piece she mentions that after discovering war crimes committed by the US in Iraq, she developed a “huge passion for” the Middle East and Muslims. Yeah, I would say that’s the standard backstory and psychology of most Islamophilic truthers. Nothing special here.
She writes that, “I did not ever draw conclusions about Daesh or become a voice against Zionists and Israel because I wanted to think of Muslims a certain way.” But that’s not true. She attested to developing a philo-Islamic view after being exposed to information about crimes committed against Muslims in various Middle Eastern wars. So all of her views about Muslims after that point have obviously been tainted with the proclivity to see them as eternal victims who can do no wrong on their own accord. That’s the problem. That bias has caused her analysis of Muslim issues generally to be skewed by feelings of guilt and sympathy that arose from reading about the suffering of some Middle Easterners during the wars after 9/11. I don’t deny that some Muslims have been victims of injustice. My bias against Islam and Muslim immigration into the West doesn’t stop me from acknowledging that in certain cases they have been wronged by non-Muslims (Iraq war, Palestine, etc.). But that doesn’t mean all or even the majority of Muslims are therefore victims, nor does it mean that Islam is a benevolent religion. Nor does that disprove the fact that some Muslims have been perpetrators and aggressors, rather than victims, both today and historically.
She and others like her refuse to address my valid points, such as that the Islamic terror threat today is clearly real, thus rendering 9/11 truth a pointless exercise in that it’s main contention, that the “terror threat” is fabricated, is now an untenable position to maintain. How about that 9/11 can’t be used as a pretext for future wars, thus rendering 9/11 irrelevant from an anti-war perspective? Or the fact that the “truthers” can’t get their story straight in that they say Islamic terror is fake “over here” but that it’s real “over there” in the Middle East. None of these issues are addressed.
What it comes down to, and what she essentially confesses to, is that she was upset over the Iraq war so she became a bleeding heart shill for Muslims in all their struggles. When Muslims do wrong, it’s not them doing it, but shadowed CIA agents forcing their hand. But that’s not actually proving what they think it is. If Muslim radicals are working with the CIA, then all it proves is that radical Muslims are willing to sacrifice principles to collaborate with other evildoers for short term gain when they have a common interest with these other players. That would make them doubly evil, not innocent. So the claim here is basically that radical Muslims are the murderous foot soldiers for the big powers. I guess that means we should hate them even more?
This woman is engaged in typical reactionary politics and leftists are famous for it. They find out who has been “victimized” in some form or fashion and then leap to their defence in every situation. It’s the same dynamic when leftists write apologia for third world dictatorships like North Korea. Kim Jung-Un is being “targeted” by the big bad American empire so he “must be doing something good.”
She writes that she “loves Muslims” and describes them as “kind and loving” who have “a gentleness and sweetness about them.” Yeah, tell that to the people who have had their heads sawed off by Isis, were just knifed to death on the London Bridge or were run over by a Muslim kamikaze in a truck. Tell that to the 2,000 Nigerians massacred in a matter of days by the “kind and loving” Islamists of Boko Haram who are just doing Allah’s work. This kind of pro-Islamic cuckoldry is a sign of our times as the left tries to drive the dagger deeper into the heart of the West.
While she lacks any serious argument refuting my points, she does manage to mete out some insults about my eyes scaring her, how I’m a “douche bag,” and the typical leftist charge that I’m a “racist.” Then there’s this gem in the comments:
But, yeah, this Brandon Martinez guy has revealed himself as some sort of arrogant psycho with disturbed eyes. To me as a woman he looks like the kind of guy who would slip rufies in my drink and laugh at me if I fell. He’s messed up.
Oh, how typical of an emotional woman to make up outrageous nonsense in order to impute malevolent intentions on someone she disagrees with. This rhetoric reminds me of what unstable women typically do when they go through a break-up with a guy: portray their exes as evil SOBs who are intent on hurting and raping women. Not only am I an evil racist, but “clearly” I’m the kind of guy who would try to abuse women! Racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic – these are all the evils that the left attribute to straight, white men. This is all so ironic considering she’s an Islamophile who has a love-in with a genuine rape culture. In Islam, when a woman is raped, she is the one charged with adultery! But she just loves herself some Muslims whereas an evil white male like myself is the real danger.
These paranoid truthers label all dissent from their cult narrative as “cognitive infiltration” by the shadow government to throw them off their fruitless quest for truth and justice. They function like a standard cult on par with scientology. Dissenters and critics are scorned and abused. The party line must be enforced at all times. Anyone who sways is a “heretic” to be outcast forever.
Also of note is that on her Facebook page, she’s posing like a prostitute in front of leftie pro-Palestine memes. What would her pious Muslim friends think of that?
She claims she’s not virtue-signalling for Muslims yet in the article she posted this weird picture of a smiling Muslim guy. Clearly an attempt to portray Muslims as harmless fuzzy teddy bears that just want a big hug. That is the very definition of virtue signalling!
