From the Jihad Watch Hate Mail Bag:
boy i hate to bump into you you must have no creative spirit in your bones your probly part of the worlds problems your probly a crazy ziot jew or crazy fundmentalist crazy christian…to dis jodie foster great new movie… we are at war from people like you killing in the name of god…
Imagine! Dissing Jodie Foster’s great new movie! Clearly that puts me in the ranks of bin Laden and Zawahri!
Anyway, although I am neither a “crazy ziot jew” nor a “crazy fundmentalist crazy christian,” I think it is worth noting that this kind of fuzzy thinking and absurd moral equivalence is not restricted only to spell-challenged hate mailers; it is unfortunately common in the public discourse. Maybe one reason why those who traffic in it, both “liberals” and “conservatives,” are so reluctant to debate me is that they know their whole edifice will collapse in about three seconds under any serious scrutiny.
