Peak Absurdity?

Via ZeroHedge: 

This talk examines the relation between Islamophobia as the dominant form of racism today and the ecological crisis. It looks at the three common ways in which the two phenomena are seen to be linked: as an entanglement of two crises, metaphorically related with one being a source of imagery for the other and both originating in colonial forms of capitalist accumulation. The talk proposes a fourth way of linking the two: an argument that they are both emanating from a similar mode of being, or enmeshment, in the world, what is referred to as ‘generalised domestication.’

Leaving aside the glaringly obvious fact that Islam isn't a race, what can we say?

ISIS laughs,

Even MORE disturbing is that it comes out of MIT, a university known for scientific FACT.

Well, this kind of foolishness will fade, Pastor. The Donald says we are going to bomb the poo out of them (I paraphrase here)

I saw that, LL, and wondered.

I hope so, Fredd.
