And I wasn't sure that anyone was more idiotic than the rest on the other end.
Then I started surfing tonight and found the idiot.
Max is such a copycat that he's never been Idiot of the Week before. But this time, he was front of the line with his garbage.
Max is so disgusting that he's made me dislike his father. And I read The Clinton Wars (Sidney Blumenthal's book) in high school and loved it.
Max is a spoiled, pampered kid who goes through life with a chip on his shoulder that he's got no right to. He also is cheap and tacky and loose with the facts.
So his 'big' story this week? The makers of an idiotic film that was probably Islama-phobic. He is obsessed with who made it and thinks he's found something wonderful.
I think he's just crawled through the sewer yet again.
Sidney Blumenthal seemed like a fighter and a smart man in his book and I had a lot of respect for him. Maxie seems like a whiner and a little wuss.
I didn't see the video. I have no interest in seeing it.
I'm also not interested in ginning up outrage over it.
There is no justification for killing people. Not even if your religious sensibilities are offended.
I'm Catholic. Do you know how many Pope or priest jokes I hear on a given day?
I don't torch anything, I don't attack anyone. I go about my day.
Max Blumenthal's pretending to give a damn but all he wants to do is stir up s**t and that's all he ever wants to do. He's a lousy 'reporter.' That's probably why he can't stay at any outlet for very long.
BBC News reports:
The Taliban have told the BBC that they carried out an attack on Nato's Camp Bastion in Afghanistan in revenge for a film mocking Islam.At least two US marines died when militants breached the perimeter of the huge base in Helmand province.
Aircraft and buildings were damaged and Nato says a clearance operation is under way.
People like Max Blumenthal excuse those sort of attacks by being obsessed with the wrong damn things. Keep ginning up the outrage and advertising the video, Maxipads. That's why he's the Idiot of the Week.
