Shallow, stupid, and corrupt Michelle Malkin has now declared war on geometry. She and diverse other wingnuts have noticed that the truly beautiful design for the Flight 93 memorial is in the shape of a circle … only it’s not a complete circle … IT’S A CRESCENT! Beloved emblem of ISLAMOFASCISTS! … and WORSE!!!*
As one of Captain Queeg’s cronies reasoned, “Add a handle to the crescent, then cross the whole thing with a hammer, and the designers’ true affiliations are exposed.” Riiiight. Draw a line that bisects the crescent, one that runs parallel to the points of the crescent, then stick a propeller at the widest spot in the resulting figure, and you have a beanie. And don’t anybody tell this guy about that sequence near the end of Episode 35 of Buffy where she does in the evil demonic sweatshop owners with a hammer and sickle.
One of the Nobel Laureates over at Little Green Footballs sees a different pernicious influence at work:
Meanwhile, over at RealClearPolitics, an unnamed writer demonstrates the iniquity of the design by displaying the flags of eight different Muslim-dominated countries, every one of which has a crescent moon on it. Unfortunately, they also all have stars on them too, just like our flag, which must be counted something of a detriment to his argument.
It makes me sick to my stomach, this “memorial” as well as the one in NYC. It seems like these moonbats are just beyond desperate to represent these terrorist attacks as anything but. This is a genuine outrage, and I hope it gets a lot of attention. All this “embrace” and multiculturalism bullshit is getting on my nerves. We were attacked; we kicked a good chunk of terrorist ass in response—and we’re still not done responding. Why does anything more than that need to be said?
Amazing, ain’t it? I picked this story up from The Liberal Avenger. He’s having trouble believing it too. I mean, this is hard. When I try to visualize people this dumb, I imagine them perpetually carrying around a little cheat sheet that says
and on the other side,
What these nutbars are planning to do about the Bay of Naples, some of their gramma’s quilt patterns, the insignia of airborne divisions, the letter “C”, and the moon’s twice-monthly display of Islamic sympathies, is anybody’s guess.
