Raimondo retracts; issues back-handed apology

by Eric Dondero, Editor
LibertarianRepublican.net

Late last night, former San Francisco male prostitute, Gays for Pat Buchanan '92 Chairman, and founder of the defunct 1980s Libertarian Republican Organizing Committee, Justin Raimondo issued the following statement at his website, AntiWar.com. The retraction was no doubt prompted by our series of articles yesterday, on the El Cajon, California murder of Iraqi woman Shaima Alawadi, including, our piece, "No retractions from Justin Raimondo at AntiWar.com, or Wes Messamore at Humble Libertarian on Iraqi Woman - El Cajon, Hate Crime hoax." Here it is:
NOTES IN THE MARGIN

In a recent column on the death of Shaima Alawadi, an Iraqi immigrant who lived in San Diego and was found with a note next to her dead body indicating it may have been a hate crime, I attributed her brutual bludgeoning to the general atmosphere of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiment in the area. As it turns out, the note may have been a fake, and the circumstances surrounding her death are increasingly cloudy. Although I had no way of knowing this when I wrote the piece, I should have waited before jumping the gun, so to speak, and rushing into print with accusations against the usual hate-mongers. I specifically mentioned a number of those hate-mongers by name: Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Councilwoman Debra Pauly, congressmen Ed Royce and Gary Miller, and conservative activist David Horowitz. I owe each and every one of them an apology, and here it is.

While the facts are not yet clear, what is clear is that I need to do what every ideologically-inclined writer must constantly do, and that is guard against confirmation bias. Of course, the Geller-Spencer-Horowitz crowd will crow that this just confirms their contention that all Muslims are evil, deceptive, murderous, you-name-it, but it confirms no such thing. It only tells us that the human heart, no matter what body it rests in, is capable of nearly infinite evil.

Again, my apologies to one and all.
While we here at Libertarian Republican acknowledge his retraction, we do not accept his apology. He took the opportunity to assault our friend Pamela Geller as a "hatemonger." Pamela, next to Glenn Beck, is probably the single most effective libertarian activist in the Nation right now. And envious Raimondo brutally attacks her. Additionally, he attacks libertarian Republican Cong. Ed Royce, and two Jewish conservatives Horowitz and Spencer. All of these individuals are accomplishing far more for the cause of liberty, than Raimondo could ever hope to accomplish.

Fail. Retraction ackowledged. But we're sure, Pamela Geller & Co. would not accept such an apology.

Why would it be up to YOU to accept an apology in this?

Eric Dondero said...

Because Jerry, I!!! represent the Pro-Defense libertarian movement. I am the most prominent Pro-Defense libertarian in the Nation.

But if it makes you feel any fucking better, I'll email Pamela and ask her if it's alright if I reject his apology on her behalf.

Something tells me, she'll chuckle and tell me go right the fuck ahead.

jgeleff said...

How can you be personally offended by an action that isn't directed at you? If I call Chuck a bad haircut having prick, how does that affect YOU? Lets say I then apologize for calling him a prick, are you allowed to deny the apology because you're " the most prominent Pro-Defense libertarian in the Nation", and Chuck is also allegedly a "Pro-Defense libertarian"? So now the system of apologizing must be broadened to include all in a group, not just the individual affected? Hmmmm....sounds like leftist tactics to me. Calling Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.....

jgeleff said...

"Deny the apology" should be "REJECT the apology". Better usage.

Ran / SVP said...

"How can you be personally offended by an action that isn't directed at you?" To the issue of "leftist tactics" your reflexive bigotry against those of Faith tells us everything we need to know about you, Jerry. Your comments are invariably fraudulent, uniformed or just plain dumb.

More, Chuck does not pretend to be a "libertarian." That's your job. Chuck is a free thinker who cares about Liberty.

Chuck said...

...and jigglejeff is a flaming democrat faggot obsessed with how another man cuts his hair.

BTW: I am a libertarian, but I understand that shitting on tradition as a matter of principle is fucking stupid to the point of being suicidal.

Ran / SVP said...

I stand corrected. Heh! First time I've ever heard you identify as such.

I don't, not yet anyway. I hold to too many nutty ideas that libertarians would reject.

Cheers!

jgeleff said...

"BTW: I am a libertarian"--BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! You fucking lunatic. You don't understand the first thing about freedom, though you DO understand that it's "good" to back the government's boy, and you DO understand, in your mutton headed world, that the black man can't be allowed to be president.
As to noticing your haircut, when you see a person that looks stupid because of the way he/she dresses, wears his hair, or whatever, it should be pointed out.
"your reflexive bigotry against those of Faith tells us everything we need to know about you, Jerry. Your comments are invariably fraudulent, uniformed or just plain dumb."--Oh, I'm sowwy Ran, you genius. Did hurtums feewings? Awwww. Poow wittwe wewigous phony asshole had his feewing hurt. Awwww....You're beneath contempt you piece of shit.

jgeleff said...

" I hold to too many nutty ideas that libertarians would reject."--Yeah, wacky ideas like "the government should tell me everything that I should do, and I should be able to tell everybody else the way to live their lives." Fucking phony.

Chuck said...

...said the piece of shit democrat shill...again.

Chuck said...

that the black man can't be allowed to be president.

Anybody here still believe this nameless loaf of rat shit is a "libertarian" of any type? You're too fucking stupid to disguise what you really are, jigglejeff.

Checkmate, fuckwad.

Ran / SVP said...

Not exactly, Jerry. But you're Soooo close: Try self-governance in lieu of external government. It's a phenomenon observed in lesser beings who suffer from a condition known as "psychological and intellectual maturity." Ever heard of it? No? Don't feel bad; no-one here would expect you to know a sweet fucking thing about it.

Morgan said...

Did Chuck just call himself a libertarian? Wow, who'd have thought he would ever sound like Lofo? (sounds of uncontrollable laughter)

KN@PPSTER said...

What's wrong with Chuck's haircut? It's practical, easy to manage, etc.

When I'm not doing the head shave thing, I go with a flattop myself.

Chuck said...

"Did Chuck just call himself a libertarian? "

Yes, you sniveling cunt. You dick-jerking paultards don't get to define what libertarian means. I get that you freaks are frustrated at your savior's electoral impotence, but I'm not the reason he'll never win a fucking thing. He is.

Get used to it.

BTW: In what faggot-filled retard world is high and tight something to be ashamed of? You people are scum.

Eric Dondero said...

Chuck! "libertarians rejecting nutty ideas"?

Surely you jest.

Standard rule: If you hold nutty ideas, YOU ARE by definition a "libertarian." Welcome to the club, mate.

Eric Dondero said...

Hey, you all.

I just want to take the opportunity once more, while Tom Knapp is here, to apologize again, for my gross error the other day, listing him as a "co-editor" of antiwar.com, instead of "editor of letters to the editor."

Tom, my sincerest apologies. Can you ever forgive me?

jgeleff said...

Chuck, a libertarian. No, he's a Republican asshole non thinker, just like the rest of the GOP, with few exceptions. Goose stepping faggot asshole, fucking his sister until his dick bleeds, piece of shit.

jgeleff said...

See, I can call names mindlessly too. Let it be on the record that Chuck and Ran started with the name calling. Fucking degenerates want to call themselves intellectuals when all they can do is sling insults and get bad haircuts. You're both wastes of humanity. Remove my name from your memory.

Chuck said...

Ahh, yes. Thinking. If only we could all be deep thinkers like jigglejeff.

You're done, son.

Happy trails, asswipe.

Morgan said...

Yes, you sniveling cunt. You dick-jerking paultards don't get to define what libertarian means.

Now Chuck, don't get your panties in a twist (again). If you wanna call yourself a libertarian, you can (you'll sound like a complete idiot every time you say it, but you can say it). I'll leave you to your deep thinking, or at least what you might call deep thinking (you probably sound like a complete idiot every time you call it that, but you can call it that).

Chuck said...

Whatever you say, Paultard. Whatever you say.

Do you really imagine that I'm the one coming off looking the fool in your sick fascination with me, son?

You might consider an examination of your priorities, sport.

Just sayin'.

Morgan said...

Frankly, Chuck, I believe you do look like the fool, every time you say things like calling yourself a libertarian, or saying Romney is the most conservative candidate in the race, or confuse name-calling with intellectual insight.

All in all, you're as insignificant as Gary and as ludicrous (and weird) as Lofo. Good night.

Chuck said...

Frankly?

You've lost, Morgan. You could've garnered some good will by admitting you fought the good fight and lost. You chose acid instead.

I'm not obsessed with you. You can't not attack me.

Who is the asshole in this scenario you've created, Morgan? Me?

Really?

Eric Dondero said...

Anti-Islamist = LIBERTARIAN

Pro-Islamist, or Appeasor of Islamism = Non-Libertarian

Chuck is an Anti-Islamist. Therefore he is 1000 times more the libertarian than Ron Paul or any of his followers.

Nuff said.

"Anti-Islamist = LIBERTARIAN

Without question, the most mind numbing thing I've ever seen you post. So the fact that a person is a libertarian spins on the Islam position? You REALLY need some education if that's what you think Eric. You need to lose your fascination with being a libertarian if this is your synopsis of the entire movement.

Chuck said...

What hilarity. A nameless, faceless, dickless democrat shill and Brakabama worshiper lecturing actual libertarians on what their beliefs entail.

You're done, you leftist fuckwad. The jig is up.

jgeleff said...

Chuck, you are NOT a libertarian in any way shape or form. You probably can't pronounce the word, you knuckle dragging prick. Or is it the copious amounts of drool you're producing that's keeping you from proper pronunciation?

Chuck said...

Keep pedaling, shit for brains. You just keep proving what I've already said about you. You're a piece of shit leftist.

No libertarian supports Communists because they find their skin color appealing. You do, though.

You're done, fuckface. Savor the flavor.

Chuck said...

BTW: The reason the libertarian movement has never gained any real traction in electoral politics is because the Libertarian Party has succeeded in making the term synonymous with vice. All other freedoms should be addressed before we get to dope and whores. It's how serious people arrange their priorities. The Libertarian Party is not populated by serious people. It's a fucking Star Trek convention with serious delusions of adequacy. The Paultard army is basically the LP's farm team.

Jigglejeff could make an argument if it had one. It doesn't. Just hate and undeserved feelings of entitlement. Same goes for the character calling itself Morgan. These hate-filled freaks think they're owed something by strangers. They typify the Paultard mindset to a tee.

Chuck:
Even if they were serious, most people don't think or believe as libertarians do. Certainly not in this century. May be 5-10% on the outside? The problem, as I see it is that Libertarians do come bearing gifts and in fact want to take many if not most away. Since people have become enculturated to the largesse of government, they perceive supporting libertarians as not in their best interests.

Chuck said...

There is iron in your words, paleface:)

I still think the case for liberty could be made in much better ways. Take the stuff where most people have agreement and work from there. If you want to get laid, you start with a kiss. The LP just walks up and demands their dick be sucked because it's what they think ought to happen. It only attracts creeps.

Chuck said...

BTW: that "largesse" mostly stays in the hands of government workers. 70 percent goes into the pockets of...wait..shit...you! :)

Chuck said...

"When I'm not doing the head shave thing, I go with a flattop myself."

Tom, why do you shave your head? Just curious. Some guys do it at the first sign of a receding hairline. Just curious is all. I've kept my shit high and tight since I was 17. I just have shitty hair. Hair women say they wish they had. Bouncin' but not behavin'. hehe My wife always rags me for cutting it so every so often I let it grow out into a "hairdo". I'm in that phase now and my wife likes it while I'm ...trying to get used to it. II think I could pull off that whole Jack Nicholson/Alec Baldwin deal where you slick it back if I had the patience to let the shit grow out that much before I mowed it off. :)

The Right Guy said...

Chuck: Not for long... :) I wish I was as thin as Clint, he and I have similar personalities, although I am probably a little more stable and that is coming from me.

The Right Guy said...

Yeah, the LP should change it's tactics, but then there would be little to distinguish itself from the Tea Party and fiscally conservative GOP. Ron Paul could pull it off if he got rid of the tin foil hat.

Chuck said...

Clint Eastwood was in my little one dog town last week shooting a movie. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Beale too. There were "sightings". I think it's funny as shit how we are in this little podunk mountain town. My wife actually called me in the middle of the day to report that she'd gotten it on grapevine authority that Clint Eastwood was eating lunch at OUR Applebee's. Like a Bigfoot sighting. hehe People are weird...and wonderful.

The Right Guy said...

You should have invited him over for dinner. And the rest of the cast: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2083383/

Bullshit, Chuck. It shows how little you actually know about me. I know I'm not entitled to a damn thing, and nobody owes me a damn thing. It also shows how little you know about the "Paultard" mindset; otherwise you wouldn't make such a dumbass statement like that. There are some crazies amongst his supporters, but none of them consider themselves entitled to anything by anybody. And judging by your own comments, Chuck, the hate is coming from your direction.
