Don't be like those other guys burning stuff, be like me burning stuff.

I think the reasoning behind the burning is pretty important.

This will surely show those Afghan ASSHOLES who were STUPID enough to be born in a country which as been subject to 30 years of continual warfare, which has militarized their country and destroyed their civil society institutions!

This will also teach those Afghani IDIOTS to be subject to a decade long military occupation by western powers that have a different set of cultural and religious values, and has a terrible tendency to subject Afghanis to extraordinary rendition and cause collateral damage!

Also, can you believe that Muslims in the west are religious minorities who are not part of the dominant cultural hegemony, and are often upset by people discriminating against them and disparaging their religious, ethnic and cultural identity?

While I think you have a point about the reasons why religious extremism is so prominent in Afghanistan as something for people to coalesce their lives around, I still fucking hate them. I hate their clerics who incite the violence and I think any religious man that tells his people to kill to defend the defamation of a holy book deserves to be killed himself.

Also apparently Karzai made a speech highlighting the burning of the Koran before any clerics started the riots so the one to blame for the violence is actually our supposed puppet leader. So fuck him too.

And obviously fuck this guy and the super mustached bumfuck preacher but I still defend their right to free speech.

Fuck yous all around.

I never quite thought Thunderfoot would take this route, but oh well. Do what you gotta do.
I would have thrown a few tens of thousands of copies of the Bible, Atlas Shrugged, The Secret, and every other piece of fantastical mumbo-jumbo. So long as we're burning stuff, let's burn it all down.

I used to like him. Then he started on his science screeds, and he got tiresome. Now he's just lost it.

Book burning is awesome and always has been. There, I said it.

Ocyrus - 2011-04-15

Rudy: I'm just in it for the flames.

Cena_mark - 2011-04-14

Thunderf00t is awesome. Quo'rans suck.

takewithfood - 2011-04-14

Extra star because I really am curious to see if burning a digital copy counts for anything.

pastorofmuppets - 2011-04-14

Sagan wept.

+4 stars for this comment!

Unsurprisingly, it's very easy to act on your freedom of speech and demonstration rights when you're not the person the mob in Afghanistan is going to find and execute.

StanleyPain - 2011-04-14

I think burning books as a way of protest is stupid, but this was kind of clever in it's own way and I like Thunderfoot anyhoo.
Fuck apologists for Islam.
PROTIP: Islam is not a race. Therefore, criticizing the religion for the innumerable things it rightly deserves to be criticized for is not racism.

BOOSH - 2011-04-14

Didn't you get chased off poe-news for saying something similar to this?
