Fascism Awareness Week

I was sitting behind some old guy on the bus on Sunday night. I am a terrible shoulder-over-reader, or whatever you want to call it, and I noticed that the dude was reading that how-to on setting up your own Islamofascism Awareness Week. As has been previously noted by myself, I am not up on the current crop of wingnuts. I am more likely to recognize Nixon era people than any present day wingnuts. We got off at the same stop and I wonder if I am neighbors with another crazy right wing pundit or if he was just a Dean from one of the five (six? seven?) universities in DC reading up on threats to campus security.

UPDATE: UM, so like facism means to like get all up in someone's face or something. Maybe with a Facebook account? I should fucking retire or maybe sleep more and drink less coffee. OR MAYBE GET A DICTIONARY AND READ IT? Shut up, Baxter.

I'm surprised, actually, that no one's set up a Christofascism Awareness Week yet. Of course, it could just be called "the entirety of left-wing blogdom."

Here at the College there's an Islam Awareness Week that runs every year as an outreach project that helps debunk the whole "you are all terrorists" mythos so lovingly flogged by the Right. I can't recall ever seeing any protests regarding this. Call Malkin at once!

I'm really bad about reading over people's shoulders too. I've never come across any over-the-shoulder reading that's that interesting though!

Brando said...

Chuckles, you should have found out what he was up to by waterboarding him.

Kathleen said...

this only strengthens my belief that I should be carrying around a "HOW TO SURVIVE (AND PROSPER) UNDER THE COMING SHARIA LAW PRESENT BY THE LEFT" that I can whip out ostentatiously in appropriate moments.

Kathleen said...

the typo in my hypothetical title is intentional for its commedic effect and in no way represents a commenting error on my part.

Chuckles said...

I would have waterboarded him, Brando, but apparently it isn't torture anymore. I read that post linked on Sadly No and now I think waterboarding is just an aggressive shampooing-type procedure.

How does one aggressively shampoo? Could you post an instructional you-tube on the topic? I am guilty of over-the-shoulder reading. Did it today. Guy turned around and gave me the 1-eyebrow-lift quizical look. I was overtired and giddy, and said "HI!" Big smile. I don't think he liked that...

Chuckles said...

VON, I would have said, "Hi! Could you turn the page, please?"

Its Friday! Let's all go waterboard/aggressively shampoo some folks!

"FACISM AWARENESS WEEK"

'Be aware that Fascism is now spelled Facism. This has nothing to do with worshipping FaceBook.

'Thank you for your attention. Please ignore the man watching you.'

bp's comment makes me wonder, is Islamofacism similar to Blackfacism?

Islamofacists want all you dhimmis to get cartoonish hooked noses.

Wow, such interesting buses. All Bossy ever gets is Anne Tyler.

Chuckles said...

O sweet baby Jebus. Look what I done did with the spelling and shit.

Being a genus is hard work.

billy pilgrim said...

I was gonna leet it go, Chuckles, but it was too good.

Chuckles said...

Yeah, at least we have that.
