Skip to comments.Message to Muslims: Iím Sorry (Mega-Barf)
Posted on 09/19/2010 6:02:25 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Many Americans have suggested that more moderate Muslims should stand up to extremists, speak out for tolerance, and apologize for sins committed by their brethren.
Thats reasonable advice, and as a moderate myself, Im going to take it. (Throat clearing.) I hereby apologize to Muslims for the wave of bigotry and simple nuttiness that has lately been directed at you. The venom on the airwaves, equating Muslims with terrorists, should embarrass us more than you. Muslims are one of the last minorities in the United States that it is still possible to demean openly, and I apologize for the slurs.
Im inspired by another journalistic apology. The Portland Press Herald in Maine published an innocuous front-page article and photo a week ago about 3,000 local Muslims praying together to mark the end of Ramadan. Readers were upset, because publication coincided with the ninth anniversary of 9/11, and they deluged the paper with protests.
So the newspaper published a groveling front-page apology for being too respectful of Muslims. We sincerely apologize, wrote the editor and publisher, Richard Connor, and he added: we erred by at least not offering balance to the story and its prominent position on the front page. As a blog by James Poniewozik of Time paraphrased it: Sorry for Portraying Muslims as Human.
I called Mr. Connor, and he seems like a nice guy. Surely his front page isnt reserved for stories about Bad Muslims, with articles about Good Muslims going inside. Must coverage of law-abiding Muslims be balanced by a discussion of Muslim terrorists?
Ah, balance who can be against that? But should reporting of Pope Benedicts trip to Britain be balanced by a discussion of Catholic terrorists in Ireland? And what about journalism itself?

have a drink of pig urine mr mussie...you’ll feel better.
Give back Hagia Sofia and Constantinople and I’ll think about it.
Take your apology to Mecca and read it there.
Lots of buzz on the internet about just how despicable this article was...
Yeah, you’re “sorry” alright
Typically in the US military it takes 10 soldiers for one front line soldier. When it is a fight at your home front it was for the Germans during the war about 4 to 5 soldiers per fighting man. So lets take the 4 soldiers per fighter which is 5 soldiers.
How man citizens does it take to finance 5 guys?
In other words if 2% are fighting us then their support equals 10% on the front lines or support.
To Finance 10% it would take in charities and bad government supports at least 30% at and they would be hurting for cash at that level.
In other words if 2% are fighting at least 40% are financially or directly supporting them at the very least.
Too late. Bambi already apologized to the Muslim world, and now we have ‘world peace’.
What a dork.
When they’re chopping your head off Kristoff or just as they’re about to smash the plane your on into the building make sure you tell the Saracens that you wrote such a glowing article about them in The New York Times. Who knows, it might help. Not!!
Whorled Peas with no more violins.
Kristof can KISS OFF. The NY Times can’t die fast enough.
You can’t be a Muslim and an American. (Heard it from the horse’s mouth on Hannity’s radio show a week ago.)
Why do all anti-islamic articles have to be ‘balanced’ to bring up the so-called moderates? This guy is an idiot.
Do I have to read this, or can I just say, “Paging Mark Steyn.”
I'm only sorry a lot more Korans were not burned and/or abused. IT's evil and an enemy at war with us.
muslime = nazi = war party = enemy of America
Thats reasonable advice, and as a moderate myself****
I knew I could stop reading tight there. I love how these leftist have absolutely no political self-awareness. They love to point out what they call the extreme right wing but have no intellectual capacity to see their own extremism.

Not on your life.
Mr. Kristof will be one of the 1st to have his head chopped off, what idiot appeasers they are!
Dear Mr and Mrs Jim and Janey Geehad:
You aint seen nothin yet.
You are the real embarrassment.The Muslims are smiling at you on the outside while laughing at you on the inside, for your innocence, naivete, gullibility, and ignorance.
I’m sorry too. I’m sorry Charlemagne, Pope Urban, all the Crusaders, Vlad Dracul, Ian Sobieski, etc were not more successful in extirpating these scum from the earth.
Mega Barf is right!
Good luck to you!
Kristof, what a moronic dhimmi scumbag
This is what a Rhodes Scholarship and a Pulitzer Prize means for the 21st century
Hey Kristof, if you really want to grovel try fellating Ahmawhackjob in the lobby of the UN building — I’m sure that your solicitude for “Muslim feelings” will be even more appreciated that way
Kristof There are no good Muslims wake up you pandering fool and jackazz!
Moderate/ extreme matters not “its the religion stupid!” Islam is all about oppression death destruction torture fear evil. It seeks tyo destroy civilization. Failure to understand that will result in millions of deaths of innocent people..
The only mopderate Muslim is a dead Muslim.
The greatest anti-truth, anti-freedom, anti-individual, anti-life collective in the history of civilization.
Fislam and the barac it rode in on.
“Dear Nicholas...I don’t care about Muslim sensitivities.”
For sure. In fact, the more I can offend them, the happier I am.
Great OP-ED, Nicky!
Now put on this parachute and we’ll drop you into Waziristan to deliver it personally.
Hey, Islam: your silence is deafening.
The biggest cowards on earth are Muslims who live quiet lives.
Today is football. Don't care what muslims think. Tomorrow is MNF, I don't care what muslims think. Tuesday is not football, and if muslims don't kill anyone, then I don't care what muslims think.
Now if Wednesday comes and muslims kill someone, well then muslims better care what I think. Why...?
We need these “smart” moral high ground people to produce a piss Mohammad like the piss Christ they loved so much at the NYT. These people always do whatever they can to hurt the feelings of Americans and impose harm on them as best they can. Their latest tools are Satanists, Homosexuals and Muslims. We never make them pay for what they do and that is why they never stop. They just get more disrespectful, uglier and lower with each passing year.
And in American jails, muslims are provided special diets as well as scheduled meal times to accomodate their stupid ramadan month. They are given access to the common areas to grovel toward Mecca on their dirty little rugs. And their moron islamic leaders come in every Friday. This country has lost its mind.
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Muslim:
I apologize that you are trapped in a 21st Century world armed only with a Seventh Century faith.
I apologize that your faith is so divided among its sects and schools of philosophy that you have no authoritative voice to express whether or not you support terrorism in the name of Islam.
I apologize that your faith is so insecure in its tenets that it cannot stand to allow others to practice their faiths in your midst.
I apologize that you know nothing about the real relationship between men and women who bond for life and who respect each other as different but equal in the eyes of God.
I apologize that you believe your God is so ineffectual that he has to be defended by deadly violence by you.
I apologize that whatever scientific, cultural and artistic advances you claim have obviously been lost on your current generation. I apologize when you are forced to admit that many of those claimed advances were really made by infidels temporarily under your control at the time.
I apologize that people along the borders of your hegemony are knowledable enough about Islam to resist your push into their homelands.
I apologize that your leaders have rested your futures and fortunes on the inconsistent pillars of oil-driven economies and tribal religion and loyalties so that your homelands are about to implode. I apologize that your homelands don’t care enough about their people to ensure a future which doesn’t hypocritically rely on slave labor and Western technology.
I apologize that your young men and women see a brighter future for themselves dead than alive.
I apologize that your leaders have trapped themselves into supporting the Palestinians in their vain quest to dislodge Israel so that you cannot benefit from the blessings of having a democracy and working economy in your midst to help you see the possibilities open to you.
Most of all, I apologize for believing in a kind and forgiving God who wants all His children to come unto Him and will bless them equally with all the other children of Abraham.
Perhaps as an idiot Mr. Kristof could also apologize for all idiots everywhere too!
They are scared....
We are not!
When I saw that opening line, I thought it was going to be satire. Then I considered the venue, and the writer’s name, and I reconsidered.
That’s OK, Kristoff. Go on, apologize. Get down on your knees. It’ll make it easier for the Muzzies to cut your head off.
So now we have a concerted effort to create another ‘victims’ class made up of Muslims.
Our society further declines.
