Michael Vick Does The Linguistic Twist


Oh, for the days when words actually meant things. Specific things. When they had objective definitions.

But as George Orwell foresaw, when government controls education and communications, a culture's language is generally the first thing to suffer the assault; "war is peace," and so on. In a thousand ways, we are now witnessing the cashing-in of this phenomena, right here in America.

Today, we have the grotesque spectacle of Michael Vick, who, to the casual observer, should have been on top of the world --- a mega million dollar NFL career, good looks, and all the material comforts, prosperity and security that America's race hustlers and victim-crats (white, black, red and brown) keep saying are eluding minorities.

But all that wasn't quite enough for Vick.

No, he had to go and commit unspeakable acts of barbarous cruelty to dogs, that amounted to torture*. And when these dogs had no further use for him and his depraved friends, they killed them with their own, bare hands.
(*I normally supplement my posts with appropriate pictures, but in this case, I don't have the stomach for it; just Google "Vick dogfighting" and you'll see what I'm talking about; don't do this if you've just eaten, or ever plan to eat again)

As a dog lover and one who works in the legal field, upon hearing stories like this is the past, I have expressed to friends my belief that maniacs who perpetrate this level of barbarity upon creatures as sentient and loving as dogs should be subjected to the exact type of abuse that they dished out. Especially if it is being done for no purpose other than one’s own amusement, or for something as petty as gambling.

(And as one who recently recovered from a near-death situation, I cannot even begin to express my renewed sense of appreciation for my own dog, and how much she has helped me through this, just by her being... her).

We have a “civil” justice system, however, that would not permit such “cruel and unusual punishment.” So in all likelihood, Vick will only have to pay a hefty fine (for the abuse, and the gambling), serve time in a safe, warm prison cell, and then live out the rest of his life in some degree of luxury and security.

But Vick and his sleazeball attorney weren’t quite through perpetrating their outrages. No, they had to go just a bit further, and in a classic case of Clintonian double-speak, claim that he "accepts full responsibility" for this mistake. From the Orlando Sentinel:

Vick's lead attorney, William "Billy" Martin, issued a statement on Monday.

"After consulting with his family over the weekend, Michael Vick asked that I announce today that he has reached an agreement with federal prosecutors regarding the charges pending against him. Mr. Vick has agreed to enter a plea of guilty to those charges and to accept full responsibility for his actions and the mistakes he has made. Michael wishes to apologize again to everyone who has been hurt by this matter," the statement said.

A “mistake.”

(But Vick's attorney wasn't the only one to use this misnomer; so did the LA Times, and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune)

Let’s be clear: A “mistake” is when one is walking through a park and inadvertently steps in dog squeeze. Or, when one accidentally enters the wrong figure in his checkbook.

A “mistake” is not what happens when one is walking down the street and deliberately punches a person in the face. Or when one betrays the trust and confidence of a friend who'd done her no wrong. Or when a top-level political leader sticks his, ahem, you know, into the mouth of an intern entrusted to his supervision (“Mistakes were made…”).

Or when one deliberately brutalizes, injures, disfigures and then kills dogs. No, that is the trademark sign of a sadistic son of a bitch.

Hey, Michael Vick: I sure hope no “mistakes” happen to you while you’re serving time in the graybar hotel that you’ve now accepted a reservation at.

And I sure hope that when you get out, a bunch of vicious dogs don’t maul you for their own amusement.

(Actually, that's not quite true. I hope that the attempt is made, then stopped --- so that perhaps you will finally grasp the horror and brutality that you and your miscreant friends dished out to dogs that were trusting you to care for them.)

Right back atcha, Michael Vick.

August 6 Update to Roundup Of Western Government-Enforced Dhimmitude


This is the July 31 - August 6 update to the master directory,
Roundup Of Western Government-Enforced Dhimmitude:

Hat-tips to fans of JQWorld who've sent in story links, and to stories sourced from the real heavy-lifters who document these things, primarily JihadWatch, DhimmiWatch, Daniel Pipes, AmericanThinker, LittleGreenFootballs, AtlasShrugs2000, The Jawa Report, Family Security Matters, The Gathering Storm and BrusselsJournal.


Cambridge University Press (UK) bends over, grabs ankles to placate super-wealthy Saudi prince who's been funding jihadist terror for decades, claims it will destroy all books it published documenting his acts

U.S. taxpayer funds were going to support Hamas murderers, until it was recently stopped
(tip-of-the-iceberg alert from JQWorld)

NYC madrasses principal tied to "Intifada NYC" t-shirt; calls US foreign policy "racist;" but this school will absolutely, positively not engage in any kind of political propaganda --- nope, none, promise!

Weeks after
Bush admin announces plans to send diplomat to "learn from" OIC, including Muslim Brotherhood, jihadist terror-funding case in TX (with CAIR as unindicted co-conspirator) reveals Muslim Brotherhood's long-term planning statement to convert U.S. into Islamist-dominated nation

British health system: UK burn victims must wait for special treatment, we have a murderous follower of... no particular religion, who attempted to blow up Glasgow airport, to treat first!!!

British elementary school teacher tells 10-year-olds to write “Allah is the greatest,” and “I bear witness that there is no God but Allah,” for "handwriting practice."

French Dhimmitude, Part 9,336? Report - France selling advanced weaponry to Libya, helping to arrange for release of Lockerbie bomber from England

Euro-Socialists formalize their dhimmitude; aim to use power of government to stamp out "Islamophobia" (a/k/a free speech)

CAIR-salivation alert:
Heterosexual San Diego firefighters forced to march in "Gay Pride" parade, file discrimination suit in response
(JQWorld: Based on this precedent and others [here, here, here, here] how long will it be before CAIR and its admiring leftist apologists begin requiring anti-Islamist police officers, college professors, civil servants to march in "Jihad Pride" parades?)

Spanish Foreign Minister: Admires Iran's "constructive and effective role" in resolving conflicts in Middle East (JQWorld: Hm, wonder if this shocking European demographic data might have something to do with Spain's dhimmitude? In other news, militant Islamist attacks on Spanish cilivian train stations on 3/7/04 to be airbrushed out of Spain's schoolbooks, in act of "friendliness towards our Muslim overlords, er... neighbors.")

British police ignore video of radical imams who preach hatred, violence, urge takeover of Britain by followers of... no particular religion; videographers who filmed them --- not

Infidel He-Men Of The Week: Robert Spencer & Jason Mattera


"He-men" have been celebrated throughout time for standing up and acting on principle, in the face of danger and consternation. Usually, their acts of bravery involve standing up to only a single foe, or a small group of bullies/miscreants/psychopaths.

But this week, Americans and freedom-loving people everywhere were shown what true courage is all about, when two men --- one, a seasoned truth-teller, the other, a younger spokesman for a national civic organization --- stood up to domestic Islamists (and their attorneys, and the mainstream media and academic and political "intelligentsia" that continually whitewash, defend and obfuscate for them) --- Robert Spencer of JihadWatch, and Jason Mattera of the Young America's Foundation.


Robert Spencer is the author of numerous books on the nature of the war that Islamists and jihadists have declared on Western civilization in general, and America and Israel in particular. Spencer's websites, JihadWatch and Dhimmi Watch, provide a daily dose of the brutal realities of the deadly foes facing us --- as well as those individuals and groups that appease and enable them, up to and including those at the highest levels of government in America and other Western nations.

Spencer was scheduled to speak at the YAF conference on August 2. The day before, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) --- long-documented of having ties to global Islamist terror, and now an unindicted co-conspirator in a jihadist terror financing scheme* --- had their attorney fire off a threatening letter to the YAF, demanding that it cancel Mr. Spencer's speech.

(*Background on CAIR here, here, here, here, here)

And just several days before that, CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper leveled false and defamatory charges against Spencer on CNN.

(Q) And who is the attorney that CAIR retained to try to suppress Mr. Spencer's right to free speech, and the YAF's right to host the event, without fear of legal intimidation?
In the immortal words of Gomer Pyle, USMC, "Surprise, surprise, surprise!!!"

(A) It's none other than the attorney who represents the Democratic National Committee, Joseph E. Sandler.

(Yes, that's the same DNC that has been making such a diligent effort to subvert America's war against Islamist terror at every turn, to enable groups like CAIR to sue "John Does" who report suspicious behaviors to law enforcement officials, to chip away at our intelligence agencies' ability to intercept and monitor suspected jihadist communications, and to crush free speech in America by resurrecting the [Un]"Fairness Doctrine.")

Perhaps CAIR, Mr. Sandler and their DNC sympathizers were thinking that the YAF would just buckle under in dhimmitude, and comply with their demands --- like so many public and private institutions in America have now made it a practice of doing (see JQWorld's "Roundup Of Western Government-Enforced Dhimmitude").

One thing we know for sure: They weren't counting on a steely-spined free-speech advocate like Jason Mattera, spokesman for the YAF, who issued this brief, stunning response to CAIR's and attorney Sandler's "demand" for an answer by the end of the day:

(Mattera said) The decision was made to defy CAIR and its demand that Spencer's talk be cancelled. "We will not be intimidated by radical Islamic thugs," Mattera said. "Not only will we let Robert Spencer speak, but we will invite even more people to hear him. We are not going to fluctuate the conference just to suit their demands."

And in another statement, Mattera said:

"CAIR can go to hell, and they can take their 72 virgins with them.”

See the video of the second statement here.

Ouch! That's gotta hurt. But that's what a patriotic, free-speech-loving, concerned American sounds like, folks. Perhaps one day we'll have elected leaders and businesspeople who sound like that. Let's hope.


NOW, let's take a look at the speech that Robert Spencer gave at the YAF, that CAIR and attorney Sandler made such a fuss over, and tried to quash (click image to go to HotAir for playback):

Ouch, again. Yep, CAIR and its allies certainly had reason to worry. Because as more people (particularly the young) become aware of the reality of CAIR --- versus the public image that it presents, and that the mainstream media, academia and many politicians continually lap up, like kittens to warm milk --- the more they will start to stand up to CAIR and other Islamist front groups.

For their rigid spines in the face of intimidation and threats from CAIR and its allies, and for daring to defy all the "politically-correct" and "multiculturalist" pablum that our cultural leaders keep trying to stuff down our throats...

Robert Spencer and Jason Mattera are the



The Legal Project is a new division of the Middle East Forum, Dr. Daniel Pipes' Islamist research organization. Excerpts from the LP's August 2 press release:

CAIR's letter appears to be aimed at maliciously harming Spencer's reputation, interfering in his lawful employment, and aimed to discourage both Spencer and YAF from exercising their fundamental rights to free speech and assembly. Furthermore, the letter wrongfully implies that YAF has an independent duty to censor Spencer, and that it may be subject to suit for allowing Spencer to speak on private property. It is our opinion that CAIR's pre-emptive accusations are without merit, without any legal basis, and that CAIR has yet to prove any of its statements as true.

Therefore, the Legal Project hereby gives CAIR and its attorneys notice that it, too, will pursue "every available and appropriate legal remedy to redress any false or defamatory statements that are made" or have been made by CAIR and its attorneys against Spencer. We advise CAIR's staff to govern themselves accordingly.


It's tempting to say, "Finally, someone is legally standing up to CAIR intimidation!!!" But the fact is, there have been two major cases in which people in the USA have stood up to CAIR/Islamist intimidation, and won:

CAIR backs down from its lawsuit against Anti-CAIR

Islamic Society of Boston drops its lawsuit against 17 defendants

Heroes, one and all. (Even if the mainstream media was far too preoccupied with round-the-clock non-stories to find slivers of time to squeeze in coverage of these blockbusters, and as a result, only about 99.9% of Americans have no idea of what is going on.)

Infidel Hottie Of The Week: Pamela Geller


The human middle finger is a remarkable appendage, that can be used to do many wonderful things.

For example, China is now celebrating Ji Fengshan, 56, who hopes to get into the record books for his ability to pull four cars roped together - using only his middle finger.

Mr. Fengshan, however, has nothing on Pamela Geller, creator and webmistress of AtlasShrugs2000. For three years, Pamela has been working hard to root out news items and provide perspective on vital issues and events that the mainstream (in Pamela-speak: "lamestream") news media won't touch with a 10 ft. kaffiya.

But on Sunday, July 29, Pamela decided she would use her middle finger to give an up-close and personal voice to to the tens of millions of Americans who are repulsed by Mother Sheehan's disgusting,
jihad-endorsing, America-subverting, hero-decrying, Jew-hating, dictator-swooning charade, via the classic one-fingered salute:

See Pamela's whole photo-diary of this day's finger-iffic festivities here.

And to show that she's a multi-cultural and equal-opportunity offender, be sure to check out Pamela's classic vlog on Hassan Nasrallah, butcher-in-chief of Hezbollah, here. She goes just a bit further than giving that jihadist monster merely her very-articulate finger...

Then, there's the weekly podcast radio show that Pamela hosts, "Atlas On The Air," Tuesdays at 9pm EST. Recent podcasts are available for streaming there. Since mid-2006, Pamela has conducted one-on-one interviews with a broad range of people who should be in the news, but aren't (hey, MSM, we understand... the Lindsey Lohan rehab issue, the Britney Spears panty issue, the 2008 presidential money-derby, the... yeah, you get the idea). Here are some of the more notable interviews Pamela has done, that are available for downloading (typically 15MB files):

Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA), 2008 presidential candidate

Reed Rubinstein, attorney who represented Anti-CAIR against CAIR-initiated lawsuit

Bat Ye'Or, author, "Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis"

Evan Coyne Maloney, director of film "Indoctrinate-U"

Lt. Col. Allen West, from Kandahar, Afghanistan

Mark Steyn, author of "America Alone"

Dore Gold, former Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations

Robert Spencer, author of "The Truth About Muhammed," and creator of websites JihadWatch and DhimmiWatch
(named a JQWorld "Infidel He-Man Of The Week," here)

"Lionheart UK," a Briton who's been driven out of his home by Pakistani jihadists

Dr. Andrew Bostom, author of "The Legacy of Jihad"

John Bolton, on the Israeli-Hezbollah "ceasefire" (8/12/06)

For her valuable work at AtlasShrugs2000... for possessing (and utilizing!!!) testicular units that put supposed "real men" like Harry Reid, John Edwards, Howard Dean and Bill Clinton to shame... and for being willing to go skin-to-skin* with Mother Sheehan to give the voiceless masses of clear-thinking Americans a voice (*and having to burn her own clothes afterwards)...

...the lovely Pamela Geller is the


On a personal note: How Pamela
(and Arianna Huffington!?) helped to inspire the creation and development of JonQuixoteWorld.

About one year ago, I was almost totally unaware of the personal blogosphere. Then, I saw a link to something called "AtlasShrugs" at
HotAir. As an admirer of Ayn Rand, I was curious and clicked... and the rest, as they say, is history.

Via AtlasShrugs2000, I was given my first glimpse into the reality of the encroachment and appeasement of Islamism (Muslim supremacism) in America. I had never heard of CAIR, of the linkages between domestic Islamists and murderous jihadists here and elsewhere, and had no idea of the irrefutable "convergence" that is occurring between the lunatic left (including the mainstream media) and radical Islamism, in America and beyond. At first, I was skeptical. Then, the more I researched it, the more I became concerned. But then, certain events (including regular exposure to the posts and interviews at AS2000) got me motivated.

And during this past year, Pamela's site has opened my eyes to individuals who would go on to become some of my modern-day heroes --- including Robert Spencer at JihadWatch, Daniel Pipes at the Middle East Forum, Andrew Bostom, Brigitte Gabriel and her American Congress for Truth, and countless other courageous individuals who are fighting to advance a clearer public understanding of vital national and international issues, particularly relating to Islamism and jihadism.

So, thanks, Pamela... as Ayn said, you never know when a receptive mind will be exposed to your writing. Although we disagree on some things, we agree on many more... and you have my eternal admiration for all you've accomplished.

For a time, I used the knowledge I gained from AS2000 and other sites to routinely kick the shit out of the Huffington Post lunatics (whoops --- in Pamela-speak, "leftards!"), by exposing and demolishing their lies and propaganda, often with links back to the posts and sources she provided. But then, I figured, what the hell, I'll go ahead and create my own blog, kinda like Pamela did, so I don't have to keep repeating myself!!!

So although my days of wasting time posting at HuffTardsVille are long over, JonQuixoteWorld was in part the result (Pamela and Arianna Huffington, sharing kudos for co-inspiring the gestation of a new blog? One that's now ranked in the top .0025% of the 95 million blogs out there!? Whoa!!!

Plus, thanks in part to the inspiration I got from AS2000 (and the sources I've been led to through it), JQWorld has given Arianna Huffington's little America-bashing, jihadist-appeasing, tyrant-worshipping, propaganda-spewing site no shortage of headaches over the last year. So, thanks again, Pamela! ;)

Here's hoping there are lots more Jon (and Jane) Quixotes out there whose eyes get opened, and minds get inspired, and spirits get motivated, through AS2000!!!
