>You are more concerned about what the irredeemable enemy thinks; that makes you an appeaser.<
That’s not true. What I did is point out that your saying that you support exterminating a people weakens the anti-Islamist cause. I didn’t specify among Muslims (though that’s true), and certainly didn’t say among “the irredeemable enemy” (whom I favor opposing — if necessary, fighting to the death rather than submitting). I had in mind that statements like yours serve to weaken the anti-Islamist cause among non-Muslim Europeans, who need to be convinced that Islamists and not their enemies pose the greater threat to freedom.
>Do not reply or I will alert the moderators to your continued harassment.<
Nobody calls me an “appeaser” (an especially absurd charge after I started my first post with “I’m disgusted too by what that article said about the UK trying to appease the Islamists.”) and succeeds in intimidating me into silence. Unlike appeasers I don’t intimidate that easily.
As for what I said about you, one statement was hypothetical and intended to give you an excuse for making your outrageous statement about “exterminate” — “If yours [your sanity] has been adversely affected by war, I’m sorry.” (Unfortunately that does happen to some persons.) People often flatly state, though, that someone else is “crazy” — something I didn’t do — without it being considered a harsh insult. When I’m called that, it’s like water off a duck’s back. :-)
My other statement is also surprisingly mild, considering the context. “Your thoughtless bravado and I think that’s more likely what we have here than lack of sanity hurts the anti-Islamist cause.” Neither statement in my opinion is as offensive as your calling me an “appeaser” of the enemy.
I’m a big boy, though, and can defend myself. I won’t tattle. If you feel to seek the help of the moderators, that’s up to you. Perhaps you’re in better with them than I am. I don’t know. Still, I don’t believe they’ll read this thread and find my relatively mild statements more offensive than what you wrote (”What should be done: [picture with EXTERMINATE on it]”).
Actually I was protecting the reputation of this site by showing that we don’t advocate genocide (if a significant number of the readers here really do advocate genocide — and don’t just occasionally use outrageous rhetoric to let off steam — then I don’t want to be associated with it, and will willingly leave). I gave you yourself every opportunity I could to explain away what you said earlier. I’m not asking that you be forbidden from making such statements, but I do believe others should be free to respond (and not have to treat advocates of genocide with kid gloves).
Sorry that our disagreement has become somewhat personal. Ordinarily I’d be inclined to treat someone with the name “Old Sarge” with great deference (and even now I still have hopes that you’re just letting off steam, and haven’t really thought through the consequences of what you’ve proposed).
‘If you feel to seek’ should be ‘If you feel the need to seek’.
