Nice smack-down, brother.
Two thumbs way, way up....
In the one serious toe-to-toe dustup between the Communists and the Islamists, the Communists backed out. Of course, the Islamists had some outside help, and the home turf advantage.
Regarding the issue of “cannibalism”...
Recall that a few days after Hurricane Katrina blew through New Orleans, reports started coming out that the survivors were resorting to cannibalism.
Recall also that the response to those stories generally wasn’t “That’s ridiculous”.
The concept that some groups of people can go “cannibal” is one that Mr. Berger’s cohort, and possibly Mr. Berger himself, considers, in the deep, dark, secret recesses of their minds, to be plausible.
Sure, and the groups who are least restrained by religious or cultural moral underpinnings will be the very ones who resort to it first, when they are starving.
Say, groups who consider it entertaining to sucker-punch whites on city streets, then kick them in the head until they are maimed or dead, while filming it on cell phones for later amusement.
I don’t think they are going to stay at home and quietly starve when the skittles are all gone.
The patriot movement? Wanna bet this dufus tried the same horse hockey with Rawles?
In other pics, he has a full beard and he looks a lot older.
(His twitter self-description. VERY serious “natsec” guy, this “specialist on homegrown extremism.”
HIGH-VOLUME natsec feed by J.M. Berger, specialist on homegrown extremism; author of Jihad Joe, book on US jihadists. The weed of terrorism bears bitter fruit.

I would have thought his views on “homegrown extremism” would have been all about Timothy McVeigh and the Aryan Brotherhood.
Here’s the bio from his website. No LE or Military, just “journ-o-lism” for decades back. Note the topic of his next book, and how it ties into his approach to me, in his mind. He seems to be an apologist for islam, and a real hater of “militias” etc, that old libtard boogyman, which he links directly to white racism.
J.M. Berger has been a journalist for 25 years, working in every form of media from newspapers to New Media, radio and television. His work has appeared in The Atlantic, Foreign Policy, the CTC Sentinel, the New York Daily News and the Boston Globe, and on National Public Radio, Public Radio International and the National Geographic Channel.
In addition to working internationally as an investigative reporter studying terrorism, he is an award-winning business writer and has covered science, technology and religion. He is currently working on a book about the FBI’s infiltration of white supremacist and militia groups in the United States.
Berger consults on homegrown terrorism and online extremism. He has presented research for counterterrorism professionals such as the New York City Police Department’s Intelligence Division, New Jersey state law enforcement, the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), the Homeland Security Policy Institute at George Washington University and more.
I guess that OKC / Aryan Nations stuff too old, and he needs some newer and catchier headlines. That’s where I come in, I guess.
Plus, he’s probably pissed off that nobody gives a damn about his lame nonfiction book “Jihad Joe.” After a year, it’s at about 350,000 on Amazon, so it’s selling maybe a handful of books a week, if that. IOW, diddly squat, despite the glowing reviews it received from the LSM, such as this by the NYT:
(Here is the last par)
At a time when some politicians and pundits blur the line between Islam and terrorism, Berger, who knows this subject far better than the demagogues, sharply cautions against vilifying Muslim Americans. Extreme and indiscriminate anti-Muslim rhetoric helps to validate the worldview of our enemies the premise that Americas wars are indeed wars against Islam, Berger writes. You cannot tell someone, You are my enemy, and then blame them for believing you.
It is a timely warning from an expert who has not lost his perspective.
Scott Shane is a national security reporter in the Washington bureau of The Times.
(Good grief, I’ve never gotten a single LSM review, and I’m outselling him by miles. Imagine if the NYT reviewed my trilogy, even in the negative! It would sell a million copies with that kind of fawning coverage from the NYT and WaPo etc. And Jihad Joe is still on the way-back list at Amazon. I suppose Berger thinks my name and titles will help to launch is book about how the FBI is infiltrating all of those “white racist militias.”)
This is precious: J.M. is “available.”
IOW, he ain’t raking it in as a “domestic terrorism expert” with his very own website.
Berger is available to work as a writer, editor, researcher, ghostwriter or producer. His experience includes writing for the Boston Globe, the New York Daily News, The Atlantic, Foreign Policy, Nature, as well as many businesses and institutions. E-mail or call (202) 656-4XXX to find out what he can bring to your editorial product.
” Liberals are mind readers. They can read a white racist between lines that are not written and between words that are not said.”
As long as we have purused the “Phenominology of Jethro Bodine” I am reminded of the old Dick Van Dyke show where book publisher John McGiver says to Rob Petrie “ I know symbolism! I NEVER miss it, Why, I can see symbolism when it isn’t even there!! “
Good one! Mind reading put the “smart” into liberals.
Berger is available to work as a writer, editor, researcher, ghostwriter or producer.”
Ghostwriter or producer??
Well, I suppose number of book sales he has thus far qualifies him as a “ghost”
” Sales of my book on terrorism started off slowly.....and then, of course, they began to taper off”
Don’t we all know at least 3 J.M. Bergers personally?
I only know 2
Make that one : )
I have been thinking about it and if your books were targeted by the dummies as a huge, white racist secret plot and it caught on, sales of your book would go through the roof! All the liberals would have to buy your books to “study” your unspoken racist intentions. The socialist neo-Nazis would have to buy it in case it had the secret marching orders they missed. :)
Maybe you should do the interview and make the liberal hysterical?
Trust me, I can’t wait to read the DB piece, if it ever gets into digital print. “There’s no such thing as bad publicity.” The 5 day free period already increased my circle of awareness far beyond the conservative choir. A hate-fest by the libtards would just mean more folks read the books. They will stand on their own.
