Marines ban farting to avoid offending Muslims
Jihad Watch ^ | August 24th, 2011

Posted on 08/24/2011 2:16:33 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing

There are so many weird aspects of this story. Don't these Marines have mothers, or someone in their lives who told them as children that audible passing of gas was offensive? And the high command has to tell them to cut it out because it offends Afghans, as if such a reaction were different from that of any normal person? And unfortunately, the friendly-fire jihad attacks by Afghans that regularly punctuate the working relationship between U.S. and Afghan troops are not going to be ended by this small gesture in "trust building." "For Marines in Afghanistan: be careful where you fart," by Gina Cavallaro in Military Times, August 23 (thanks to David):

In a sane media world, this would be a front page story. Here on FR, this has to qualify.

They don't want to offend people who wipe their ass with their bare hands? I'm guessing the average Afghan doesn't exactly bathe on a regular basis. A fart would probably actually freshen things up a little out there.

Gentlemen, it’s not our Marines’ fault that you guys can’t make those sounds anymore because of all the sodomy.

These are the people who think it is ok to screw a goat but not to eat it immediately afterward. But it is ok for them to sell that goat to a neighbor to eat.

With apologies to Robert Burns:

Ode Tae a Fart...

Oh whit a sleekit horrible beastie
Lurks in yer belly efter the feastie
Jist as ye sit doon among yer kin
There sterts tae stir an enormous win'
The neeps 'n' tatties 'n' mushy peas
Stert workin' like a gentle breeze
But soon the puddin' wi' the sauncie face
Will hae ye blawin' a' ower the place
Nae maiter whit the hell ye dae
A'bodys gonnae hiv tae pay
Even if ye try tae stifle
It's like a bullet oot a rifle
Hawd yer bum ticht tae the chair
Tae try an' stop the leakin' air
Shify yersel fae cheek tae cheek
Prae tae God it disnae reek
But aw yer efforts go assunder
Oot it comes like a clap o' thunder
Ricochets aroon the room
Michty me a sonic boom
God almichty it fairly reeks
Hope a huvnae shit ma breeks
Tae the bog a better scurry
Aw whit the hell, it's no ma worry
A'body roon aboot me chokin
Wan or twa are nearly bokin
A'll feel better for a while
Cannae help but raise a smile
Wis him! A shout wi' accusin glower
Alas too late, he's jist keeled ower
Ye dirty bugger they shout and stare
A dinnae feel welcome ony mair
Where e'er ye be let yer wind gang free
Sounds like jist the job fur me
Whit a fuss at Rabbie's party
Ower the sake o' wan wee farty

I’m
absolutely
shocked
right
out
of
my
mind

Somebody, somewhere in the deepest reaches of the Pentagon, strained mightily at the multitude of challenges facing a military in the field and came up with THIS?

I don’t know if I should laugh or try manfully not to weep bitter tears.

Normal, healthy, active Marines now have to refrain from farting. No doubt we’ll next get orders to cease cursing, or maybe even flap our arms and try to flutter around the damn room on signal.

(Spit on the ground and walk away)

That’s not the Marines I know. They should tell the Afghans that they are risking their live, so cut them some slack on cuttin’ some wind. Whomever thought this up should be demoted.

Beano to the troops.

It would make the front page and so would the indoctrination and conditioning of our troops which is going on right now—that conditioning into ignoring the sodomy and pederasty and homosexuality in Afghanistan and look the other way. But since we are trying to teach “homosexuality” is “good”, it doesn’t fit the MSM’s allowed “group think” of Marx where we no longer have ‘right and wrong” based on God’s laws (in Founding Documents even) and ‘switching” to the standards of pagans/and occultists and atheists.

Don’t rock the boat—I guess it is part of the indoctrination into the homosexualization of our military into the pagan, occultist worldview—to destroy George Washington’s military—the Christian paradigm and morality that he shaped our military with, as he kicked out and severely punished all people who practiced homosexuality in the military.

Oh, yes....we are adopting the morality of the homosexual Brownshirts (Pink Swastika—free online) and the pagan Russians so that OUR military will be able to be used to destroy and kill their own citizens—which a Christian military and men (like Patton) would never do-—men who had a Christian value system, where homosexual acts would literally make them puke and did—which it should—it demeans the human body in such a filthy, nihilistic way.

After all, we can’t offend the Afghans.

What is offensive to the Afghanis is that this is the traditional Mohammedan man/boy love call, and they don’t want infidels doing it.

Plus the reason is not to offend the muslims.

We as a country have bent over backward and forward for the benefit of muslims even prior to 9/11. Then we get hit and still the US leadership is trying to appease these feral humans.

When our country is back in American hands, I hope that the leadership tells the muslim world to go pound sand.

A Centurion farted in a crowd of Jerusalem pilgrims one time and the Romans had to slaughter thousands and crucify hundreds before the populace would settle down.

We could learn from the Romans—the USMC motto on passing gas over there should be,”smell it and like it you heathen savage.”
