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):
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
JonQuixoteWorld INFIDEL HOTTIE OF THE WEEK
So, thanks, Pamela...
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.
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.
So, thanks, Pamela...
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!!!
