Bono stood on the stage in front of an audience, doing what I have come to learn is his standard holier-than-thou poseur's act. There was dead silence except for Bono repeatedly slapping his hands together. "Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies," he said solemnly.
Voice from the audience: "Well, then, stop fuckin' doin' it!"
Ha! Rick Darby writes at Reflecting Light blog, and when he gets pissed, someone else gets dissed -- and deservedly so. Today he takes to task Daniel Greenfield of Sultan Knish blog, who is an excellent expository writer that regularly defends Israel and takes it to the Muslims who hate everybody -- but who will not allow any mention of the ongoing black intifada against Whites, Asians and Hispanics across the country.
He then turns his sights on Baron Bodissey and his associate Dymphna, two people who created the anti-jihad blog, Gates of Vienna. Rick feels that Baron is too snobbish in his allowance of comments, and deleted the Bono post italicized above, and then banned Rick from commenting at all.
