ABU AND HIS NURSE
ometimes the repulsive creeps of Islamist terror need to be denounced for their demented and grisly inhuman behaviour, particularly when they indulge in detestable crap like rigging a girls' school full of bombs, or sending a six year old child against their foes with a suicide vest they promised him would "spray flowers" -- as happened in Afghanistan last week. Which, let's face it, is the kind of activity they are usually engaged in, so by "sometimes" I really mean "most times."
But there are other occasions when it seems to me that ridiculing and laughing at them is more appropriate -- something I expanded on last year in the wake of Abu Musab al Zark-Owwwwie's last and funniest home video, just before his timely demise.
And this, my friends, is an occasion of the latter type. Just because a dork is also a hate mongering advocate of religious violence, he's still a dork, and thus worthy of pointing and laughing. If enough of the world simply pointed and laughed, perhaps gullible young men wouldn't be so eager to follow in the dork's footsteps.
Abu Hamza has a problem: the nurse who has been dressing him, bathing him, trimming his oh-so-manly and prophet-like beard, and even wiping his ass for the past two years in Belmarsh Prison, is a friend of Dorothy. The firebrand Egyptian cleric, formerly the imam at London's infamous Finsbury Park Mosque, now serving multiple sentences for solicitation of murder, incitement of racial hatred and terrorism, is rather ticked off about this news. He demands a new nurse, although prison staff are surprised he hadn't noticed "Queenie's" personality before.
Now the cleric is claiming it is against his religion and human rights to be treated by a homosexual. The source said Hamza's solicitor wrote to the governor demanding his client is given a new regular nurse.Just imagine if your job involved wiping that thing's backside every day. Surely Sheryl Crow would be astonished at the number of squares that job would require. Queenie's job must surely be one of the worst in the entire British prison system, and look at the thanks he gets. If Imam Hook (Hamza has no hands, but has a fitted hook) had his way, why he'd just have a big old wall pushed atop poor Queenie for simply being who he is.
The prison service refused saying it does not discriminate on grounds of sexuality.
The source said: "The nurse is upset about it. He has spent the last couple of years doing everything for Hamza, even wiping his bottom.
And no, of course I'm not teasing the nurse here. I'm laughing at a hateful creep of an Islamic chauvinist (a former nightclub bouncer), who has just spent two years having intimate moments with Queenie.
The source said: "His nurse is open about being gay. He even speaks with a camp voice. His nickname is Queenie.I'll just bet it's discomfortable, trying to scrape your ass clean with a freakin' hook. Way to go Abu Hamza, you've demonstrated that homophobia can be painful even to the phobe. Queenie has more human compassion in his little finger than you'll ever achieve in a lifetime. And you'd have more repulsiveness in your little finger than all the gay nurses in the world -- if you had fingers.
"Hamza has been refusing treatment while he is on duty but he won't be able to keep that up because it is causing him a great deal of discomfort."
More background on Abu Hamza here. But be careful, you can't always trust those online free encyclopedias.
Also worthy of another dose of ridicule, while I'm at it, is the BBC. Last week I noted the findings of their own inquiry regarding an institutionalised left-wing bias at the Mother Corp. Apparently there isn't just an over-representation of socialists dispensing Britain's television-tax funded news to the masses. The Beeb also employs members of illegal terrorist organisations.
Despite Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) opposition and per the request of the BBC, the coordinator of government activities allowed a Hamas member who works for the BBC to enter the Gaza Strip last week to assist in efforts to release kidnapped journalist Alan Johnston.Hamas is recognised by the British government as a terrorist organisation, and is banned in that country. The BBC denied the charge of employing Hamas operatives.
Defense officials told The Jerusalem Post that a week ago, a request came from the BBC asking that a Palestinian employee of the news company who is believed to be a close associate of senior Hamas officials be allowed to enter Gaza.
The Shin Bet objected to the BBC request, saying that the employee was actually a member of Hamas, and perhaps even a terrorist operative.
BBC strongly denied that any of its employees were members of Hamas.Notice the little flip there -- "We deny that our members are employees of Hamas," rather than "We deny that our employees are members of Hamas."
"We deny that our members are employees of Hamas," Simon Wilson, Jerusalem's BBC Bureau Chief told the Post.
It could well be that BBC is now seen as a stepping stone to moving up to a job at al Jazeera English. As I tune in to the AJ broadcast from time to time, it's apparent that nearly every BBC World presenter I'm familiar with, is now working for AJ out of Dubai or Kuala Lumpur. With such talent-raiding going on, it's no wonder that -- if it wants to keep its Islamist reputation -- the Beeb is forced to recruit right from the source.
Here's another oft-photographed turkey worth pointing and laughing at, the man who never closes his mouth -- Rage Boy. Whether it be a pen and ink drawing in a foreign newspaper, a rumour out of Newsweek, or a distinguished British author receiving his knightship, Rage Boy will be ready to display his tonsils for the world. He looks forward to his anger -- and is never happier than when he can foam about blasphemy in a book he can't even read. As Hitchens asks, in the face of such idiocy, "[e]xactly how is such a mentality to be placated?"
The answer, of course is that it can't be placated -- even if one wanted to. Which one should not want to do in any case. This insane mixture of self-pity and self-righteousness (and as Hitch says, a lot of self-hatred too) is most reasonably countered by simple ridicule and mockery.
