A sniff in the kortevar, that what you cry for, yeled? A prert up the cull, a prang on the dumpendebat?

Bisecting the Crescent

The Flight 93 memorial redesign “still orients on Mecca,” readers. It’s still a thinly-disguised shrine to Islamofascism, that’s what it is. Read ‘em and weep, friends:

Crazy guyThe redesigned flight 93 memorial, announced today, still contains all of the features that made it a terrorist memorial. Architect Paul Murdoch’s infamous red crescent is still there, still planted with red maple trees, still inscribed in the exact same circle as before, and with the same two crescent tips still intact. Thus the crescent bisector defined by these crescent tips is also the same as before. It still points almost exactly to Mecca, making the crescent a Mihrab (an Islamic prayer station, where the believer faces into a crescent, towards Mecca, to perform his ritual prostrations). The design still incorporates a separate upper terrorist-memorial wall, centered precisely on the red-maple crescent. There are still 44 translucent blocks on the flight path to the crash site, matching the total number of dead, instead of just the forty translucent blocks that are dedicated to the forty murdered Americans. Lastly, the Tower of Voices part of the memorial is still an Islamic prayer-time sundial.

The “crescent bisector… still points almost exactly to Mecca.” The crescent is really “an Islamic prayer station,” suitable for “ritual prostrations.”

And the wingnuts who write things like this? They, too, achieve qibla orientation, at various stages of their frantic thrashings, as they lunge from padded wall to padded wall in their cells in the goddamn fucking looney bin. God help us and save us, readers.
