Skip to comments.The End of TIME
Posted on 09/12/2010 9:26:57 PM PDT by stolinsky
For decades, Time magazine was a valued weekly source of news. But in recent years − with cable news, talk radio and the Internet − it became redundant. Now, however, it is making itself objectionable. Thats why I have resolved not to buy it again.
Two weeks ago, Times cover accused America of Islamophobia. First, does Time mean all 310 million Americans, or even most of them? If so, the cover is deceptive and defamatory. Yes, some Americans, and some citizens of all nations, are guilty of any misdeed you can name. But why does Time indict our entire nation?
Second, what is Islamophobia? Is it a recognized mental disorder? No. Is it clearly defined? No. In effect, the term is elastic enough to describe anyone who opposes anything any Muslim wants to do anywhere. You object to building a mosque at Ground Zero? You must be Islamophobic. You complain about five-times-daily Muslim calls to prayer blaring over loudspeakers in Hamtramck, Michigan from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.? You are surely Islamophobic. Whats wrong with you? Arent you multicultural?

America has a VERY Rational fear of Islam.
I can rustle up $1 in change from under the cushions in my couch: Should I buy Time Magazine?
Why should I buy and read TIME when Dailykos is free?
Islamophobia is a smear leftists apply to people (Americans especially) who have woken up to the fact that Islam is a political system as much as a religion...that it is primitive, generally regressive, and hostile to and incompatible with Western civilization.
Remember the good old days when Time magazine was a CONSERVATIVE read?
They still publish that rag?
I haven’t read a Time Magazine in several years. It’s waste.
I’m afraid of any religion that’s into genital mutilation, honor-killing rape victims, gay pedophilia (Muslim saying- women are for breeding, boys are for fun). They hate beer, Jesus, their Mommas, bar-be-que ribs, and dogs. They say pork is unclean, but wipe their a$$es with their hands. They believe the sayings of a drug-addled prophet who couldn’t get a single convert to his religion until he started getting violent. Yes, I guess I’m an Islamophobe, mainly because I don’t want our nation to revert back to the 10th Century.
“...five-times-daily Muslim calls to prayer...”
No wonder the mooselimbs haven’t brought themselves out of the dark ages!!!! Not enough time in the day to devote to work that might advance civilization!!!!
Very true. Thank you.
Yes, I sure do! I am 75 now but I can still remember the TIME as a conservative (by our standard today) magazine.
In those days it was regarded as a fairly light conservative to moderate magazine which covered most of the political views and left it to your mind to base your opinion or decision on.
Now it is just a leftist rag with no relevance to what is really occurring today!
And they wonder why they losing money?
Sure. Burn it, put the video on YouTube, and see who riots.
Mr. Luce and his Conservative wife must be spinning a bit these days!
A few links on how 5 of the 6 TV networks have investors from Saudi Arabia or multibillion deals, joint ventures etc including Time Warner/CNN/Time/Sports Illustrated and lots of TW crap.
The endless brainwashing on TV - ALL of TV - that Islam is “moderate” between TV commercials about “stupid white men” is called brainwashing. Brought to you by Saudi Arabai and the left plus others.
Here is General Electric aka NBC, CNBC, MSNBC
GE Aviation announces about US$10 billion deals from Middle East at Farnborough
General Electric Co. said Monday it will sell its GE Plastics business to Saudi Arabias Sabic in an $11.6 billion deal
GE signed a corporate procurement agreement (CPA) with Saudi Aramco, ... GEs commitment to long- term investment in Saudi Arabia
Tens of billions of deals and they all go through the King of Saudi Arabias nephew who works only with Immelt.
Bloomberg - the sixth TV network has major deals in Islamic countries for financial data, TV and other content including news.
Prince Al Waleeds 7% ownership in Fox aka News Corp.

Don’t have Time or money for Time!!
No, I meant the magazine itself. Newsweek just sold for a dollar to a new owner.
I cut TIME off back in 1986. What took you so long? LOL!
Well, maybe you could burn the whole...
No, sorry, bad idea.
Whatever the hell an “Islamophobe” is, I’m proud to be one. :)
Don’t overlook the fact that they also hate dogs, God’s non-human best friend to humans. Anyone who hates so much of the good things in life is someone I’m proud to have a “phobia” against. Mighty proud. :)
