Schlussel Quoted in Today’s New York Times

By Debbie Schlussel
I’m quoted in today’s New York Times, regarding the Muslim foot baths being installed at the University of Michigan-Dearbornistan, a story I broke on this site back in May. Here’s the NYTimes quote:

On her Web site, Debbie Schlussel, a conservative lawyer and blogger in Southfield, Mich., posted, “Forget about the Constitutionally mandated separation of church and state … at least when it comes to mosque and state.”

Unfortunately, it looks like New York Times “reporter” Tamar Lewin did little reporting, other than getting a couple of quotes pro- and con- the foot baths. She pretty much copied and repeated what was written in the Detroit Newsistan several weeks ago, including using the exact quote from my blog, the exact way the Newsistan identified me, and repeating false “facts” on the foot baths, like how much they really cost. And they claim the New York Times is “the newspaper of record”? More like the lazy, liberal echo chamber.
There’s more to this, and I and fellow blogger, Dearborn Underground (who has been doing excellent work on this and many other issues), are writing a follow-up about the lies that U-M Dearbornistan has been telling and what they’re really doing behind the scenes, none of which Ms. Lewin bothered to look into. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, if you are a Michigan taxpayer–but especially if you are a tuition-paying University of Michigan-Dearbornistan student–please let me know if you are interested in fighting this in the Courts. E-mail me with your name and phone number and permission to forward it on to a third party.
Thanks to Barry Popik for the tip on the NYT piece.

Debbie, the article was pitiful and I didn’t even know it was cribbed. they made out the Muslim students to be victims of islamophobic abuse, who never even asked for footbaths, who use youthful American slang words. And for NYT to call you conservative is reaaly a smear coming from them, a signal that something abhorrent is about to take print. Anyway, I think it would be more accurate to label you “pretty right wing Jewess who insists on living in Detroitistan”.

Some thoughts:
1- Before you can RE-build a house, you must first DESTROY it. The liberals, their drive-by media, and all the useful idiots we have living among us ARE NOT [just] dumb. No, what they really want is to destroy the current American values, then they can re-build this country [I bet you that they’ll even change its name] in the fashion of their beloved marxists, socialist, and communist [failed] systems.
2- Divide-and-Conquer: The islamofascists are very happy that we have such useful idiots. So while liberals suck all the energy from our efforts to maintain a close-to-perfect democratic America, by fighting us over: ABORTION, GOD, MARRIAGE, etc., etc., these islamobedouins can have easy picking at building a future islamic states (emphasis on the plural).
3- Once the boat gets you there, use its wood for fire! That’s what’ll happen to these useful-idiots at the hands of the religion-of-peace. Wait and see.
4- No, actually, let’s not wait and see. Please try to motivate your friends & family as to why it’s important to DEFEAT these useful-morons.
Voting for a leberal is voting for:
— Communism, Socialism, Marxism, or Islamofascism.
— A wacked out judicial system.
— New Mosques & madrassas being built, and more Churches burned and Christians killed. Just think of this: Millions of Christians fled islamofascist countries to come to America. WHERE do you think you’ll migrate to when the bedouins rule the world (that’s their goal)? Read about their “prophet’s death-bed wish. He wished that islam would spread throughout the world.
— Godlessness
— A valueless society (Hey, don’t judge me!! I only killed your brother b/c I was abused way back then!!!
— Defeat and dhimmitude.
The liberals’ heads are burried in islamic tukhusses. Please, let’s defeat them, then let’s plug the leak (don’t allow any more mu-slims (not-peaceful) immigrants into this great JUDEO-CHRISTIAN country). AND, most importantly, deport any religion-of-peace adherant who breaks the law!!!!!!!!

Hope the NYT can find enough tenents to take office space in their new building on 8th Avenue when the paper folds.

Yes, the footbaths can be used by persons of other faiths or even for other purposes depending on their type. If the footbath is of the trough type, it can also be used for seeing-eye and other service dogs as a water dish. If the footbath is of the flush type – basically a box with an opeining through which the foot is inserted – it not only can be used as to water the service dogs, but also as a urinal for midgets and dwarves.
I think that a list of other alternative uses should be developed in the comments section in every blog and news website where the issue is raised.

A couple of questions for the ACLU.
Since the foot baths aren’t religious, would a dhimmi who urinated in them be guilty of a “hate crime”? And, would the ACLU defend the person?
Would dropping a koran into the foot bath be a “hate crime”?
Would a janitor be allowed to empty his dirty water bucket into the foot baths?
Just wondering.

This is brilliant! Most mooslims i know hate dogs. It would be an excellent protest to wait til just before prayer time and give a service dog a nice bath.
Might also be a good place to rinse off a few pounds of porkchops before heading to a birthday barbecue.

No way would I let my beloved DOG (yes, a dog -for muslims that read this site) drink water out of that nasty footbath. My dog is way too superior to lick water out of the same place that they wash their dirty feet.
When Debbie broke this story, there was a thread of alternative uses for the footbath. Some where a squat toilet, urinal, etc.

Salam thanks for the lovely image I love my school colors on this. Anyways at U of M Dearborn we have many faiths that interact and pray together and stay together. No one bothers anyone else. I think its great, and I think many people should learn about other religions and different backgrounds. I always like to, I converted and many of you one day will realize Islam is actually a good religion I’m not saying convert but at least respect everyone. Since all your Jews and Christians set such good examples, maybe you need to know how to spell and read a dictionary. Also, how old are you people, are you like 5, because I guess none of your parents taught you respect. I guess they didn’t know how to raise you people, because all you probably care about is putting other people down, acting like a racist, and being drunks all day. let me ask you this, how many of you have STD’s and have life threating diseases? I cant wait to give you prescriptions at my pharmacy hahaha.

moe slum man, I’m 59, been around the block a few times and I know a gussied up thug when I hear one. islam is a belief system excusing crimminal behavior.

If newly arriving immigrants from Asia can mistake the floor of the airport for a rice paddy. I suppose they can be directed to the newly installed footbaths for their most basic needs.

Salam, Mr Cunningham, your Jewish, I know I can tell by the last name, anyways, I got to U of M dearborn. Its not like how Debbie describes it, try coming to my school, its peaceful and a clean campus in fact I have pictures of the beautiful campus around the school. Plus Michigna just put more money in for this awesome telescope, and a new engeering buidling that looks like a hub cap from the air, which is neat, so you people have no idea what your talking about. Debbie, your from Michigan and trust me theirs plenty of your Americans and Blacks living in Dearborn and Dearborn Heights, you dont know crap. Your to afriad I guess to experience it yourself. By the way John, take the 9 off your age and leave the 5, because thats how old you act buddy. Hope you have a great life as a grumpy old man, hey and if you need your diabetes medicine, or heart medicine, cant wait to have you as one of my customers. Remember CVS/ Pharmacy is the leading drug store.

Muslim man, Cunningham (now I learned this off of a advertisement poster for Bailey’s Irish Creme) comes from Tyrone County in present day Northern Ireland. That makes me Jew Part 2. Debbie being Jew Part I means we have about 5762 years of accumulated stuff. That’s why we have to possibly put up a wall not to keep us in. I’ll be 60 in November and in reasonably good health, though I do have an exzema problem. They’re thinking of doing a chemical peel. The peel will be done by the Veteran’s hospital here in Philadelphia and in the meantime they mail me stuff to keep it under control until then. But, thank you for the offer. I have 100% coverage, I’m fine.

John Cunningham on August 9, 2007 at 3:23 am

Salam well Mr Cunningham, you finally had respect for once, see how hard was that to talk to a Muslim?? All you need is to be a little nicer, because I know many Muslims that were born in this country that have a great view on this world. Many of them are becoming doctors, and pharmacists, many of my friends like me are against extremism and people that hijack Islam. I don’t have an issue with the Jewish religion or the Christian religion, but I don’t like the Zionist government and extreme views you guys have on Muslims and Arabs. You always have bad people in every race, every religion, every country and so on, you get the point I hope. There are many white people that kill, steal money, cheat government and such. So its not fair to not blame them either. So instead of bashing on Islam and Arabs only which is 98% of the time, its not fair that your people are perfect because no one is not perfect.

There’s a story that comes out of the death camps. Some surviviors were asked did they learn anything from the holocaust. Their answer is supposed to be, “if someone tells you that they’re going to kill you, you should believe them”. When Hitler wrote “Mein Kamph” (my struggle) he said he’s going to kill all the Jews. Everyone said, “oh, he’s only kidding”. It wasn’t until Eisenhower toured the death camps did everyone say, “he meant it”. We’ve all seen the news reels from that time. They weren’t filmed on some Hollywood back lot. The population of Germany at that time was around 40 million, the population of the German/Nazi army was at it’s peak maybe about 5 million. Look at the damage they did to Europe not to mention the 11 million Europeans, which includes the target group of 6 million Jews, that they methodically slaughtered. That figure doesn’t include those killed in the battles across Europe. Today we have this jihad thing (the struggle) which has on its list of things to do, number one being kill all the Jews and number two on that list is for the rest of us if we don’t hit the prayer rug five times a day, we also have to be killed. Convert of die. Most estimates of this group that believes this is supposed to be ten percent of islam. Ten percent of a little over a billion is a little over one-hundred million. The ‘my struggle’ group had five million to work with the ‘the struggle’ group has a little over one-hundred million to work with. We didn’t pay attention to what the ‘my struggle’ group was saying, many are paying attention to what this ‘the struggle’ group is saying. It looks to us that the Jews again have been chosen to be the canaries in the mine. We hear what a little over one-hundred million are saying and we hear little from the little over nine-hundred million. The OJ jury said something interesting. When they delivered their verdict people took that to mean that they were saying. “he may be a murderer, but, he’s our murderer”. A lot of us wonder if what ‘sounds’ like by the lack of collective outcry to condemn these terrorist tactics a little over nine-hundred million are saying, “they may be terrorists, but, they’re our terrorists”.

Salam I see where your coming from. I know all that happened back in Germany and Poland and other countries because my Country, Malta was under siege also. They bombed my country so much that even to this very day, the water that comes from the tap is contaminated. The thing is John, that they are using the wrong definition of Jihad. It means struggle, which is our struggle. The Muslim struggle of being the minority in the world still. Getting as many rights as Christians and Jews do. Also I know that Jews are getting picked on but Arabs are too. The Jewish state of Israel came in power around 1946 or soo. They are stealing other lands where people were living. Imagined your home getting bull dozed. Is that right? even an Innocent American died by standing up the the Zionists. I don’t blame the Jews, because I know many have good values and a good mind and are smart, but I don’t agree with the Israeli government. Just like I’m not liking many Americans because of how they treat Muslims and the government decisions they make on people. People need to realize John that all of us are unique, but we are all human beings, we all have feelings, and we all look the same in the inside. Some people seem like they have no feelings but ending other peoples lives early. To me I don’t know how you can kill someone else but people do and its sad. Did I agree with 9/11?? No not at all. Do I agree with London bombings, no, in fact I was angry. It hurt us Arabs and Us Muslims and sadly our religion is getting blamed for it. Just imagine if the news and Media was saying that all Christians and Jews are terrorists. That supposedly there religion said this? Wouldn’t you be upset? Just understand where Muslims are coming from too, because trust me I felt bad for all the people that died during the Holocaust. It wasn’t only Jews, it was a lot more people too. All I’m asking is at least think about it and maybe you will have a little bit more respect for Muslims, like I do for Jews.
