Oh Debbie, Debbie... well, and oh Michael, Michael...

(Not to be mixed with "Oh, Debka, Debka..." series. I am already too despaired by Debka to pay them enough attention.)

This is about Debbie Schlussel, she of enchanting exterior and hugely popular site. It took Debbie a few minutes after yesterday's shooting to connect the dots and to come to this fascinating conclusion:

So What if Holocaust Museum Shooter is White Christian: We Know Who Crescented, er . . . Created This Atmosphere; 9/11 Truther

The main point of this essay could be derived from this quote (if the headline wasn't enough):

Make no mistake. Muslims created this atmosphere where hatred of the Jews is okay and must be "tolerated" as a legitimate point of view. The shooting today is just yet another manifestation emanating from that viewpoint--another manifestation of the welcome mat that Muslims rolled out for fellow anti-Semites of all stripes to no longer be afraid to come out of the closet.
Ehehe... see what happens when you are hell-bent on proving a point... as if white supremacists have ever needed a helping hand, not to speak about moral support, from somebody they consider to be untermenschen anyway.

But, on the other hand, we have a fascinating Michael A. Hoffman II of Idaho*:

who, according to Adam Holland, came to a slightly different interpretation of the tragic event.In his post Now Playing at the "Holocaust Museum" - The Lone Nut (no link, as usual, you will have to Google for it), he connects his own dots and comes to the inevitable (for him) conclusion. Apparently, James von Brunn was a "lone nut" and a toy in the hands of what Mr Hoffman prefers to call "Cryptocracy" - and you know what it means in nutspeak, don't you? I shall quote only one sentence from that post, where the post comes to its grand finale:
James von Brunn's six-pointed star will be forever secure in the Cryptocracy's lone nut firmament.
Enough, I guess.

Of course, I don't even dream about comparing the incomparable Debbie, who is usually so full of good intentions, to incomparable crusty old white supremacist, anti-Semite and conspiracy fruitcake. Still, there must be a lesson somewhere...

(*) I was going to use the same "lone nut" label for Mr Hoffman. However, I soon realized that Idaho proved to be a fertile breeding or, at least, holding ground for all kinds of nuts. So, while he is undeniably a nut, he is far from being a lone one.

Besides, after a closer look at that picture, with that bow tie, this artful halo around his noggin and, especially, that humongous schnozzle, a dreadful suspicion crept into my bones: what if this is one of our own outdated field models that we have written off long ago and forgotten to send for scrap? Oh boy...
