Well, it's official. My nearly five year-old account at HotAir is toast.
Burnt, nuked, and buried for all time.
My offense? Using the term "closet camel-washer" in reference to the Imam-in-Chief's outing himself over the trophy Mosque.
It's not exactly as if I haven't posted what in many ways has become my "signature term" over there tons of times, as well as on many other blogs.
I guess that was one time too many for them.
Of course, I could have used rag-head, camel-jockey, dune-monkey, or chosen among a whole host of other derogatory terms often used (practically interchangeably) to describe the brainwashed adherents to this fourteen century-old tyrannical political movement that has managed to successfully disguise itself as a "religion" in the minds of many millions of at or near illiterates, as well as many millions who are literate, and should know better.
Too bad, as I have had a long association with both RedState and HotAir, and LGF was once on my daily Must Click list. Now I wouldn't allow my dog to read it.
I was given the option of appealing directly to Ed Morrissey, but I am not in much of a mood these days to grovel my way back onto a site that appears to be lurching toward the squishy middle.
Y'all know me. I don't do squishy middle. Not even a little bit.
LOL - Hell, I don't even flirt with it.
There is one thing about this I find not a little ironic: I got my plug pulled by a guy who has been posting all over the Internet for years under the name Allahpundit.
Yeah, like that hasn't put a knot in a few Islamic turbans along the way.
I'll miss some of my friends over there, but most I have hooked up with elsewhere, anyway.
HotAir was once the best place to be on the net, but apparently it has decided to appeal to a wider audience, and the contributers now appear to have become somewhat concerned with the perceptions of the RINOs of the world.
Fine, it's their site, and they are free to take it wherever they wish, but the squishy middle isn't a place I am interested in visiting myself, not even for a brief period.
Even so, I want to wish everybody at HotAir good luck and a great future.
Yes, even you, AP.
