More Wow

Here's an update to the outrageous tale of the anti-military company that we discussed the other day.

Turns out the owner of the company is a muslim.

Turns out his supporters are howling about the thousands of negative emails the company has received. After all, they say, what about this company's "free speech?"

Turns out they have a lousy sense of irony. As with all "offended" groups, they forget that the people writing the emails also have a right to "free speech."

Check out this part:

[[ Anti-war and free speech advocates were equally offended, by the widespread criticism of the company and the individual who responded to the soldier.

"This is a matter of free speech," said Julie Enslow, an organizer with Peace Action Wisconsin in Milwaukee. "It is totally irresponsible for radio stations and bloggers to attack a person for his personal political views."

Othman Atta, president of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee, said he would fault the worker for his lack of tact but defended his right to speak his mind.

"If you look at the polls, his opinion is reflected by a majority of Americans now," Atta said. "In the United States, everyone one is free to speak their opinion."

Everyone, it seems, except those who would not agree with this kindly and innocent muslim merchant.

Now, let's watch and see if they play the "islamophobia" card:

[[ Atta appeared concerned that the controversy might fuel anti-Muslim and anti-Middle Eastern sentiment.

"Some people will look for any excuse to target people from the Middle East," he said.

Yes!! A perfect score! When justifiably called on their anti-military response to the soldier, they turn it into a political-correctness seminar!

Man, they're good. Disgusting, but good.

Here's the whole thing:
