Gloating: sometimes understandable, never cool

I was originally going to link this post from Bonni the Holocaust denier at BareNakedIslam to ask why she hates the police so much she would brazenly lie about their statements. (From the report she cites: '..an FBI spokesman said the man’s burns were possibly from an incendiary device. “At this time, we are assisting in furthering the investigation to determine how the male received the injuries and how the fire started,” Officer John Chafee with Atlanta police said.' From Bonni's post: 'Police say they don’t believe Saamer Akhshabi (photo right) was trying to make a bomb.') I suppose if you want people to take up arms against the US government you have to take every opportunity to lie about it, and the tired old crap about Benghazi and about the President being a Muslim just won't suffice any more.

But the slew of gloating comments about the apparent bomb-maker's injuries made me think. OK, it's never nice to cheer when someone is fighting for his life, but I can see where they're coming from with this guy.

Let's leave Bonni and her goose-stepping commenters now, and travel via Facebook to a friend of mine in Colorado. Aric Clark is a Presbyterian minister, and a beacon of sound sense in the online Chrstian community. Now a couple of days ago Aric shared this link with the comment "Yep. This is what it's like for victims of sexual assault." I responded by linking this and observing 'I would have liked this better had it not been a true story, from a country where women are burned to death every week in "dowry murders". Hard to feel much sympathy for the guy, but gloating seems out of place.' To be fair, Aric had assumed it was a fake story created to make the valid point about the way in which society treats victims of sexual assaults. But in a world where people are routinely burned to death for the most trivial of reasons, it seems wrong to make light of even a fictional immolation.

Which brings me back to Bonni and her loathsome flock of commenting sheep. There was a tragic story from Montreal last week, of a woman whose scarf got caught in an escalator on the subway: when she tried to free it her hair became entangled and she died from her injuries. there was much speculation as to whether the scarf was a regular Canada-in-the-winter scarf or a hijab (as though that made some kind of difference). The press started banging on about a hijab, which the police corrected. Then it turned out that the dead woman was a Muslim who wore a hijab, but that it was indeed a normal scarf (not her hijab) which had led to her death. Regardless of the facts, Bonni and her sheep rejoice that a "headbag" wearer got what she deserved (to wit, an agonising death) for having the temerity to wear clothing of which they disapprove. So far, so unsurprising: but what shocked even me (and I don't shock easily, especially where neo-Nazis are concerned) is the sheer volume and strength of the hatred being expressed in Bonni's comment stream. See here. There is the usual crop of fantasists coming out with how-I-would-have-mocked-the-dying-woman-if-I'd-been-there porn, and Bonni banning any normal person who dares to suggest that celebrating the death of an inniocent mother of two is a little tasteless. ("She brought this oneself (sic) by insisting on dressing like a slave. Showing compassion for muslims here gets you banned. Buh Bye.") But more shocking than the run-of-the-mill sho-gives-a-shit comments are the dozens who consider a women's death (bah! a mere woman!) as a cause for actual celebration and mirth. No doubt we shall soon see videos of them dancing in the street and handing out cake. I'll leave the subject with one of the comments, which shows both the blatant racism and the degree of self-delusion of these self-described "Christians" (not Bonni of course: she pretends to be a Jew).

" ....even on our worst days we are better than them,we have half a brain(that’s half more than they have),we are kind,we are compassionate,we are generous,we open our doors to people who want to kill us(and have killed),we tolerate the intolerable.Oh,nearly forgot….and we shower daily(using soap)."
