Robert Spencer's Path of Least Resistance


Here is the most recent response from Robert Spencer to my many emails to him, complaining about the six responses which were made by a commenter, PMK, on JihadWatch.org, last Saturday, all of which were directed to me. PMK is a raving lunatic, and this is exposed by HIS six abusive comments to me Shown Here .


Mr. Spencer is not taking this seriously, as evidenced by his lackadaisical response to me, below, which is copied exactly from his email to me.


I mean, if I were to make an opinion based simply upon the first, the opening paragraph of a news story, rather than the whole thing, I would be condemned correctly as a firebrand, as a lunatic, as a knee-jerk reactionist. Despite Robert Spencer's busy itinerary, his non-stop schedule, he agreed earlier on to take a look at the abuses toward me at JihadWatch.org's comments on that topic, but he did not. He Lied.


Instead, in HIS OWN WORDS, he only looked at "the first paragraph", and made his decision based upon only that.


This is a saddening realization. Disappointing and disillusioning. And it may call into question Spencer's ultimate intentions when writing his many informative books on the subject of Islam and it's shortcomings. It very well may be that Bob Spencer is only out to make a buck, instead of truly being in opposition to the spread of Islam, it's deadly goals, and recognizing any/all other opposition to Islam, than that which Spencer advocates...... which is ultimately very mild. "Read it all", as he is so fond of writing.....!


FIRST, HERE IS MY 5th AND FINAL EMAIL TO ROBERT SPENCER, TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE ABUSIVE COMMENTS MADE TOWARD ME, BY "PMK":


Hello Mr. Spencer:
Here sir are the time stamps from the Saturday, midday article, "Iraq PM: Country Can Manage Without U.S." by you, at:
http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/017376.php#c422538
These first four (4), are my comments. The remaining six (6) are the posts by PMK which attempt to compel me to defend my remarks, to debate PMK. The final three (3) from PMK all abuse me, calling me names, implying that I can't defend my opinions.
Sir, I have yet to become clear, as to whether or not the comments section of
JihadWatch.org is a Forum or a Debate area, or for comments upon the article from you.
HERE THEY ARE:
1.
http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/017376.php#c422438
(My initial response to the article)
2.
http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/017376.php#c422538
(My general, non-specific request for all to please stay on topic, rather than personal attacks)
3.
http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/017376.php#c422566
(Here I gave in and responded to PMK, and to ZenaWarriorPrincess)
4.
http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/017376.php#c422623
(Sir, here I courteously asked PMK to refrain from personally attacking me, trying to draw me into a debate; "Read It Yourself", as you often write)
These are the six posts which were directed at me, both offensive and off-topic from PMK:
1.
http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/017376.php#c422548
2.
http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/017376.php#c422551
3.
http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/017376.php#c422616
4.
http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/017376.php#c422619
5.
http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/017376.php#c422667
6.
http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/017376.php#c422668
After my comment at 5:50pm ( #3 of mine above), PMK just gets nasty with her words to me.
I can only imagine how busy you are, how important you are! I couldn't do what you do.
Thank you for any attention you can give this; I am reticent to come comment again on JihadWatch, but will, if the ugly debate is welcome, preferring to keep vigilant and quiet, otherwise.
Cordially yours, old pal LOL,

HERE IS MR. ROBERT SPENCER'S LAME RESPONSE, IN WHICH HE ADMITS TO "READING ONLY THE FIRST ONE FROM 'PMK'. Egad, and Woe is Us!

Localmalcontent:
OK, I looked at the first one from PMK. That is the only one I have looked at so far. Can you please explain to me why you think this is offensive? Maybe I have grown insensitive to this sort of thing after being called terrible names all day, but I don't see that PMK is saying anything about you except that you're believing propaganda. You obviously disagree, and he explains his position.
But this is simply not on the order of someone saying you're evil, or lying, or bigoted, or racist, or kill children, or what have you. It is strongly worded, but I'm sorry, I don't see it as out of line.
Am I missing something? Please explain.
I will look at the others, but this one, I must say, makes me think you are being a bit thin-skinned.
As for the comments in general, they are for anything that comes up, aside from genuinely offensive material.

Disappointing at best, and deadly to all, this Spencer's depth of carelessness.
