Bloviating Zeppelin: Death For T-Shirts!

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Death For T-Shirts!

Ah, Islam, the religion of peace and understanding.

From Yahoo News:

Conservative t-shirt maker MetroSpy set off a firestorm when their newest design depicted a caricature of the prophet Mohammed with a bomb wrapped in his turban. According to Islamic tradition, graphic depictions of the Prophet Mohammed are forbidden. MetroSpy's apparent disregard for this tradition has outraged many in the Muslim world, prompting some to voice their displeasure by sending the company hate-filled email, online viruses and even death threats.

You can see the T-shirt in its original glory at the MetroSpy website -- one place I visited in the process of locating the T-shirt in my previous post. To continue:
MetroSpy's production manager, Johnathan Alexander, said: “It's a silly little cartoon. We've sold designs far more offensive than this for years”, referring to a t-shirt which reads, “My Jesus can beat up your Allah.”

The e-mails received by MetroSpy include:

- “We kill you and burn your shop. I am Muslim with forces in the U.S.A.”
- “You only have 5 days and your company will disappear. I promise!” signed, Saalem Al Qahtani, Al Qaeda.
- “In two days we kill your family."

MetroSpy, however, began "fighting back" by posting the e-mail messages with the sender's return address. Click here to see what MetroSpy calls the "Holy Hate Mail."

Further, MetroSpy included three other active links on their home page:

-- Who is publishing the Mohammad cartoons?
-- Learn more about the religion of peace.
-- The Reality of Islam by Sam Harris.

As opposed to the quivering, sniveling, whining DEM this website has decided to not only make a stand and not back down, but to fight back by publishing information about the e-mails received and then including links to non-obsequious informational sites about Islam.

Looks like it's time for me to order some more T-shirts -- and I know where.

The interesting thing about this is whether or not they will attack Metrospy. See, the big thing is that if they do; it will awaken the sleeping giant of patriotism here in the country but 10-to-1 the MSM will be very quiet on the event because they wouldn't want Bush to be right on another issue.

Mahndisa: ALWAYS good to see you vizzit!!

NS: It could kinda go either way. I hope they are spared but if not, I sense a fight in this company certainly not even remotely displayed by the Fourth Estate.

Now we see the glories of Muslim "tolerance". Hehe! That's a great idea for them to post the email addresses of these kooks.

Eh, their threats are empty.. Their a bunch of spineless twits trying to scare us out of our right to free speech..

The newspapers in America that didn't publish the pictures are spineless twits who allowed the ragheads to pin them down.

Yes, they hit the WTC on 9/11, but they missed the White House, and a handful of AMERICAN HERO'S took them down. They are a bunch of fanatical cowards. They think they can control a country like ours with fear, Think again...

The only way these SOB's will attack ANYTHING is if they can do it with a homicide bomber or a 'net attack...

Gutless bastards, one and all...

And unless they have you outnumbered 25 to 1, they won't do anything except chant to their Mighty Mo-Mo...
