Its Radical Islamic Extremism, Stupid: McCain

Published

mccain.jpgInterviewer: Mr. McCain, what is the gravest long-term threat facing our economy?

McCain: Its Radical Islamic Extremism, Stupid

Well this wasn’t the precise quote… but it sums it quite well. To quote then in the spirit of completeness:

“the absolute gravest threat is the struggle that we’re in against radical Islamic extremism, which can affect, if they prevail, our very existence. Another successful attack on the United States of America could have devastating consequences.” [Read about this and more at “Perils of Honesty in Politics”-LA Times]

We already know that McCain and team are secretly hoping for another terrorist attack occur in USA. If we needed a reminder, then it happened in the Freudian slip by McCain’s senior adviser, Charlie Black, who after agreeing that Benazir’s assassination probably helped McCain capture the Republican candidacy (proud moment for Pakistan; Pakistanis can actually affect US politics, boohoo… payback?):

As would, Black concedes with startling candor after we raise the issue, another terrorist attack on U.S. soil. “Certainly it would be a big advantage to him,” [Fortune]

So, I was wondering what more can McCain blame Radical Islamists, Islamic Radicals, Extremist Radical Islamists, Radical Extremist Islamists, Islamic terrorists, or as favored by McCain, “Radical Islamic Extremists”. The following are few more things that McCain can blame a variation of “Islamists” and “Moslems” on:

  • Interviewer: Mr. McCain, who is to blame for the real-estate crises?
    McCain: Sir, it is the extremist moors. A couple of my friends who were ex-officers on the Iraqi intelligence committee have personally informed me that Al-Qaida of Oman was pumping billions into speculative land deals in Vegas and Miami. And when the prices went way up, they sold out and disrupted the system to destroy America’s wealth.
  • Interviewer: Mr. McCain, who is to blame for global warming?
    McCain: Sir, there is no doubt that after failing to hurt us militarily, the radical extremist Talibanist shias hiding in the frontier region of Kashmir have moved their attention to the climate. My sources tell me that they have increased their holdings of big cows and cattle ten-fold, and are deliberately not slaughtering them for food. As you know sir, there is no bigger source of global warming gases, than those fat cow farts.
  • Interviewer: Mr. McCain, who is to blame for high gas prices?
    McCain: Sir, I truly believe that my years as a POW in Vietnam taught me many lessons. The enemy is always the same, no matter what facade he takes on. So, there is only one entity responsible for high gas prices, the Muslim radical extremist Islamics. Look at Saudi. The Wahabi mullas are giving free SUVs to all the followers, and they are giving gas vouchers to increase consumption. On the supply side, Mullah Chavez is restricting oil from Venezuela. I also know for a fact that Al-Qaida of Oman have moved their money from real-estate to speculative oil trading.
  • Interviewer: Mr. McCain, who is to blame for your wife’s past drug-addiction?
    McCain: Sir, my wife loves this country, almost as much as I do, and far more than Michelle Obama. She started having premonitions of an attack by savage Islamofascists in the late 80s on this country. She couldn’t take the pain of those nightmares, and unfortunately took to pain-killers. How can you blame this all-American blonde wife of mine, especially when your alternative is… I mean… any way what was your next question?

Feel free to add yours, but make sure there is some logic to your claim, even if it is clearly perverted, maniacal, wild or plain loony.

    Sen. McCain, who’s to blame for global warming?

    Don’t you know? It’s the radical Jihadists who love curry and hummus. All their traditional, shariah filled cooking is releasing masala and spices into the air which is depleting the ozone layer and, of course, trapping heat within planet Earth’s vicinity! How radical!

    Ok not exactly relating to the article – but why the Google Ads MM? Most of the time they’re no bother (though they do look messy) – but ‘fight extremism before it becomes terrorism!’ made me laugh. And in another article I kept getting one for ‘permanent skin whitening treatment’. Urgh.

    Re: ads
    Inshallah there will be a post soon informing readers about the purpose of ads, etc. If there is an unseemly ad, send us its info, and we’ll try to block it.

    Ironically, the more you clickthru on an islamophobic site, the more you will “hurt” them financially and transfer their funds to our islamophillic site :)

    Assalamu alaykum…

    1) In regards to the other candidate:
    http://www.newislamicdirections.com/nid/notes/
    “Hopefully, Obama is Not a Used Car Dealer” (title of article)

    2) Was there any previous post on this site that looks in to the fiqh issue of voting in this
    society? if not, then if it is possible, I request that the people of knowledge of this blog, to offer their opinios on this
    divisive issue…
    I realize that there is a difference of opinion on voting in secular/democratic societies.

    3) Also, just a reminder to the editors of this blog…I think we should be more tactful when taking about nonmulsims ( I understand that the interview was fake) regardless of their poilitical persuasions…I am not saying we should not criticize and point out blatant injustices/arrogance/bigotry, but there seems to be a better
    more constructive approach…I do not have the answers, but maybe the people who are political science/public policy/governement majors, etc., can give some advice…(just my opinion)

    Jazak Allahu khayrun…

    In my opinion they’re all the same…. But John Mccain is plain scary. I mean who wants to for that guy on the above picture? Not me. Everytime I heard his name I feel sick because of his ideas and how he wants to get rid of so called “global terrorism” I just feel like moving to a remote village in Yemen or Muslim country.

    Anyone that votes for him is even more stupid than him. I don’t see why Muslims would even think about voting for him. If Anyone of you disagree please state the reason why he would be good for us Muslims. Atleast I know for sure he wants to stay in Iraq for more than 100 years. Another thing he’ll do for sure is going to war with Iran which will be suicide for this country. May Allah protect our fellow Muslims.

    And Obama is another story but He’s little better than Mccain and he’ll be easy on us and our fellow Muslims, I just hope that he was kidding when he said he’ll use military force on Pakistan.

    The picture above looks scary. He looks like he wants to eat someone. I can’t believe he wants to be a president of this country at his age. May Allah Ta’ala protect us from their harm.
