Wingnuts Furious About ... Too Many Arab Beauty Queens

News

American Taliban/Miss USA Rima Fakih was just another galwho did stripper-pole dances at local bars until she was chosen as the new Queen of TeeVee Underwear Contests last night. And then, within hours, the 24-year-old bikini model had become the new Obama/Osama of the Wingnut Internet World, because she was born in Lebanon and just might be "half-muslin" for real. Why are these Arabs getting to win beauty contests? Is it suddenly illegal to find a white person to finally win one of these T&A programs?


Let's check in with "Daniel Pipes," someone who blogs about important Middle East developments such as OH CHRIST THERE IS A HOT LEBANESE GAL ON THE TEEVEE IS IT THE ENEMY OR NOT?

News that Rima Fakih, 24, of Dearborn, Michigan, won the Miss USA beauty pageant today prompts me to recall some prior instances of Muslim women winning beauty contests in Western countries.

They are all attractive, but this surprising frequency of Muslims winning beauty pageants makes me suspect an odd form of affirmative action.

These are the same idiots who pretend-fap to pictures of female Israeli soldiers. 2003 called, and it wants all of you people to turn in your blogspot logins and go back to your "graphic novels" and computer war strategy games. [Daniel Pipes]

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
