Tales of Slander

So, a little while back I got into an argument with a troll on Reality Based Educator. In a comment, he wrote:

"Uh huh. That's right. The Republicans put those words in the mouth of ahmadinejad. You know, those words about developing nuclear power and simultaneously stating a desire to wipe Israel off the map."

Of course, as we all know, he never actually stated that. However, trying to explain this to them was near enough impossible. It transpires that they do not know what it means to 'state' something. Given the nature of the right, perhaps I should have been unsurprised by a later response on another thread. I have reproduced it for your entertainment:

Slander, eh? That's quite a serious charge you've made. Perhaps you would like to provide some evidence? Otherwise, go back to your fascist little paradise.

No problem.

Starting from the top of your blog, you lead off with a quote from one of the world's best known anti-Semites -- Friedrich Nietzsche.

Lots of philosophers have urged people to open their mouths and speak up. Your opening quote doesn't stand out for its intrinsic brilliance, but it does stand out as the first hint of your ingrained anti-Semitism.

With respect to your blog, Israel is always mentioned negatively in the articles you choose to post and the comments you make.

What's more interesting is your support for ahmadinejad and your obvious acceptance of his desire to wipe Israel off the map.

Your obsession with the destruction of Israel -- which implies the deaths of most Jews living there -- is evidenced by your ridiculous defense of ahmadinejad and the precise wording of his quote about removing Israel from the face of the Earth.

Clearly you believe muslims hold some superior claim to the land that forms the sovereign nation of Israel. Obviously you know muslims and a long list of terrorist organziations have unceasingly announced their desire to destroy Israel and kill all the Jews.

Despite the obvious slaughter -- genocide -- that would occur if muslims were to control Israel, you side with them.

By the way, my original statement on this matter follows:

I wrote:

"Uh huh. That's right. The Republicans put those words in the mouth of ahmadinejad. You know, those words about developing nuclear power and simultaneously stating a desire to wipe Israel off the map."

YOu should look beyond your knee-jerk anti-Semitism and note that I did not quote ahamdinejad in my original statement, as you claimed. I merely expressed his DESIRE.

Yet you spent a lot of time hijacking the dialogue and sidestepping it into a different form.

Meanwhile, you have never answered any of my questions about what you believe ahmadinejad meant when he expressed his desire for another Holocaust and the destruction of the Israeli state.

Neither have you ever stated any opposition to the goals of muslim terrorist groups and their endlessly expressed goal of destroying Israel and killing all the Jews.

Your anti-Semitism is about as plain and evident as it gets. Why don't you try to sue me?

What are you feelings about David Irving, your fellow countryman and well known Holocaust denier? He's fallen on hard times since losing his suit. Is he sleeping at your place?

"korova, you know that because you have been critical of Israeli policy in the past, that makes you a brownshirt anti-Semite. That's how it works. You have to accept everything Israel does 100% or you hate Jewish people and are a secret member of the Hitler youth."

reality, your inability to see what's in front of your face is unfortunate. Korova is a raving anti-Semite whose postings on his own blog reveal his deep hatred of Israel, his desire for its destruction and the subsequent deaths of its Jewish population.

Perhaps you are an unwitting anti-Semite, knowing next to nothing about the situation and ignoring the unambiguous words and deeds of muslims who call for the destruction of Israel and carry out murderous attacks on innocent Israeli civilians.

The muslim world is raging with anti-Semitism and a desire to kill all the Jews in Israel at the very least, and in the entire world, if possible.

If this is news to you, well, you're living on another planet.

It's one thing for Americans to suffer ignorance on this topic if they live far from New York City. But there's no excuse for anyone living in NYC to know so little about muslim goals in the middle east.

Breath taking eh? I won't even bother debunking the many falsehoods (like the Nietzsche thing). If you want to read the full exchange, you can do so here. Meanwhile, anyone know a good lawyer??
