Reader comment on item: CAIR's Hate Crimes Nonsense

Submitted by John W. Mcginley (United States), May 18, 2005 at 17:25

Mr. Pipes: I have disagreed with you often enough... Today's article on CAIR and the alleged increase of hate-crimes against Muslims in America epitomizes perfectly the value of your website and the careful documentation which accompanies your articles. Newsweek; The New York Times; the Washington Post; The Los Angelos Times; etc., ad nauseum. They leave their critical apparatus behind in their rush to publicize the spurious claims and "studies" promulgated by groups such as CAIR. Cair I understand. They have an obvious agendum. But these beacons of the media pretend not to notice the obvious agendum. There is a deep self-masochism which is operative with these self-styled beacons of the media. Do their editors really think that their fawning behavior towards organizations such as CAIR is received with anything but derision by these organizations? The whole thing is pathetic and bathetic. Keep up the good work. John W. McGinley
