Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin and Muslim Hurt Feelings


In an earlier episode of our series, we saw that TDPK seems to have a special sensitivity for the feelings of Muslims who have been hurt by depictions of their Prophet. Indeed, in his most recent court filing TDPK asserts that the whole brouhaha between him and Aaron Walker relates to disrespectful treatment of Mohammed in pictures posted on one of Mr. Walker’s websites.

<mockery>One of the claims that TDPK has made all along is that he has been concerned that Mr. Walker would be the victim of violence at the hands of Islamic extremists. As a result of that fear, he needed to out the Aaron Worthing nom de cyber. Clearly, TDPK has been taking lesson from the same strategist who had to burn villages in order to save them.

If it were honest, TDPK’s concern for Mr. Walker’s safety would be touching.

What would make more sense would be for TDPK to be concerned for his own safety should he fall into the hands of those same Islamic extremists. TDPK is an avowed atheist, and avowing atheism is consider telling a lie about Allah by the Koran. Furthermore, sura 4:89 says:

They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah’s way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.

TDPK may be even less wise in his selection of friends than in his selection of enemies.</mockery>

In any case, TDPK is no friend of the First Amendment, and it will not be long before he will be held accountable for his behavior in court. Discovery is due in the Virginia Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. case this Friday.

Tick, tock, tick, tock, …

  1. This line by them has always been nuts. It conflates criticism of terrorists and extremists with criticism of all Muslims.

    The truth is that Aaron (and many of his friends) oppose terrorists whether they are Athiests who blew up Speedway Indiana or Muslims who threatened to murder South Park cartoonists if they depict Mohammad in violation of an extreme sect of Islam.

    But to Brett and pals, condemning those who would use violence to shut people up is “hate” of all Muslims. I think that tells us a lot about the hatred Brett and his friends have for the majority of Muslims who don’t run around threatening to kill people… the Muslims whom Aaron and his allies have no problem with.

    Some athiests have an irrational hatred of ALL faiths, and use the excesses of any zealots to smear ALL faithful people. In Kimberlin’s case, I think it’s designed to compensate for his own shameful past of setting bombs, but more than that it’s just a dumb smear.

    Keep up the great blogging, Mr Hoge.
