Check it out, Democratic Undergrounders! Dick Cheney’s links to evil have never been more obvious!

Speaking of our excitable DU friends, one of them has broken ranks:

Recently, and for the first time, I’m truly spooked by Islamic terrorism.

I’ve always seen it as a problem, but one that would eventually go away. Bush might not do it, but eventually it would burn out like a fire running out of fuel. But last night I saw an episode of Frontline on PBS, about Al Queda in Europe. I realized that these people are serious, and they want to restore the Caliphate, the old Islamic empire.

Among the replies: “Were those real Muslims or ACTORS?�?

UPDATE. Yahoo image won’t work as a re-direct. Cut and paste:

    1. DU link is dead as a redirect for me too. Can Andrea get rid of the redirects?

    1. He didn’t think they were serious when the flew 2 passenger planes into the WTC.

      But he’s convinced when he sees them make statements in an interview.

      Al-qaeda have their strategy all wrong.

      amortiser, this is DU we’re talkin’ about. Most of those nimrods think 9/11 was a Mossad/BushCo/Neocon conspiracy.I wish I were kidding.

    1. Hey! How come that type came out small?

    1. The photo of Dick Cheney looks OK to me … except for him looking a bit like Ray Walston with one antenna and Mr Hankey sitting on his left shoulder … looks perfectly OK to me.

    1. Andrea just needs to URL encode the “embedded” query string in the redirect.  “?” should be “[percent]3F” and “&” needs to be “[percent]26” (although often encoding “?” isn’t strictly required).

      See for more information.

    1. As I don’t run Yahoo I don’t see how I can force them to change their urls for me.

    1. Nice to see that one brain has been penetrated by reality at DU. First time ever, is it not?

      Sad, the rest have learned nothing from history, and willfully ignore what the enemy says. I mean, Hitler said what he meant, and meant what he said.  The appeasers then refused to believe that such a buffoon could actually be dangerous.

      That approach worked out well, yes?

      On January 23, Jordanian terrorist leader and all-round murdering bastard
      Al-Zarqawi released an audio tape about the upcoming Iraq elections .
      Zarqawi, as we all know, is an important terrorist leader, beloved of OSB
      himself, and is the undeniable head of the jihadi Islamofascists operating
      against the Allawi Government and its allies. So his audio tape is
      important. In it, he says why he is pissed off at us.
      QUOTE from Sisyphus
      So here is a major Islamic terrorist leader, telling us in his own words,
      directly, what he believes, what motivates his fight, and why he wishes us
      dead. And what does he say?

      “The speaker said democracy was based on un-Islamic beliefs and behaviors
      such as freedom of religion, rule of the people, freedom of expression,
      separation of religion and state, forming political parties and majority

      He said that freedom of expression is allowed “even cursing God. This means
      that there is nothing sacred in democracy.” He said Islam requires the rule
      of God and not the rule of “the majority or the people.”

      Let’s break that down:

      1) Freedom of Religion: The most basic, most cherished of our freedoms is a
      gigantic affront to the jihadis since there is only one God and only one
      religion: that which they say exists. Because we are free to worship as we
      choose, they wish us dead.

      2) Rule of the People/Majority Rule: The basic tenent of Democracy, that the
      will of the majority carries sovereignty, is inherently offensive to the
      jihadis. Only the “Rule of God” (meaning the rule of people like Khomeni,
      Zarqawi and Bin Ladin) will be allowed. All other states must perish.

      3) Freedom of Expression: The very freedom of our minds arouses murderous
      hatred in the mind of the jihadi. Our ability to express ourselves, to
      debate, to argue, to agree, to disagree, is an affront to God in their eyes.
      Under their rule, no one will be allowed to express anything but Islamic

      4) Separation of Religion and State: There can be no secular state, since we
      are ordered by God to live under his laws. Thus, all secular states are
      inherently God-less and must be destroyed.

      5) Formation of Political Parties: Our right to associate with like-minded
      individuals is nothing more than a sign of our decadence, our distance from
      God. Anyone who takes place in the democratic political process, even good
      liberals, are evil and deserve to be decapitated.

      This is the word directly from an Al-Queda leader. Notice the complete lack
      of the usual grievances about Israel, about Western colonialism, about the
      inequity of our bargaining position in the oil market. No, instead we are
      told directly that we are to be killed because of who and what we are,
      because of who and what we believe.

      Not a lot of room for negotiation here! It does not matter if you are pro or anti Howard or Bush. It does not matter what religion you are. It does not matter if you are a raving pinko moonbat or a ravening right winger from the hang-em-and-shoot-em crowd. If you even think of believing in or supporting ANY of the above 5 points in any way, shape or form – he wants to murder
      you, your kids and your cat, and wipe your civilisation off the face of the earth.

      There can be only one answer to this. We fight them now, or we fight them later. That is THEIR doing.

      And the left does not get that at all.

      It really pisses them off when you say this on the web. You say “well, here are the things Al-Zarkers himself wants to kill you over. This is what he said his very own self. If you like any of these 5 things, then he will give you only 2 choices. Fight, or die. You cannot even join him – he will not permit that, for you are already evil beyond redemption, in his view.

      Why do they think that he does not man what he says?

    1. Urk. Lousy formatting on my part. Apologies!

      BTW, thanks, Andrea, for doing such a bloody BRILLIANT job in pulling this site together. I understand it is a hell of a lot of work, especially when you have to tell luddites like me how to do the simplest things, like turn off the automatic email notifications.

      I really appreciate the effort you put in behind the scenes.

    1. MarkL,

      Nice to see that one brain has been penetrated by reality at DU. First time ever, is it not?

      Not to worry, the offending commenter will be purged shortly.

    1. Well, it appears the entire thread is gone now…

    1. Didn’t take but a minute to find this lovely sentiment:


      Yes America was once a great nation

      Until it became deluded with it’s egotistical pride and came to beleive it could do no wrong. Now it is starting to be seen by the rest of the world as a mad dog that needs to be contained and eventually destroyed.

      Really? Do you Aussies think America need to be destroyed? :^/

    1. <i>Really? Do you Aussies think America need to be destroyed?<i>

      Only if a world-conquering Aussie hegemony can be put in its place!

    No, you change how you pass their URLs through your redirect.  You URL encode them so that they make it through your redirect intact.
