Comedy Gold: Lame Stream Media Tells Terry Jones "You Used Us…!"

What does Terry Bones do with a Koran?

Koran-burning pastor’s websites extinguished (how’s that for the land of free speech..?)

Pat Buchanan on O’Reilly: “I would have him (Jones)  arrested and take him into custody…”

Oh noes:

Media To Koran-Burning Pastor Terry Jones: “You Used Us!”

The MSM is all about fair play and honest reporting, of course. They would never do a thing like that…….

By Michelle Boorstein/WaPo

Gainesville, Fla. — With the world on standby for possible violent rioting over a proposed Koran-burning here, the most fraught moment of the day Friday involved church representatives and a huge, sweaty, frustrated media corps.

Reporters from around the world, some of whom had been waiting on the large open lawn of the Dove World Outreach Center in intense heat and humidity for days, began yelling at youth pastor Luke Jones and an evangelist who has been working with the church after the two men gave a series of unclear comments about what would or wouldn’t happen Saturday– “International Burn the Koran Day”.

The appearances by K.A. Paul and Jones – son of the Rev. Terry Jones – just after 3:30 p.m. were the latest in a string of unexpected appearances church representatives made throughout the day. Terry Jones and Paul emerged shortly after 1 p.m. to say they were giving New York Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf two hours to agree to call off plans for a controversial Islamic center and mosque near Ground Zero.

Two hours passed. Paul came out of the warehouse-like church, followed by Jones, 29. The men gave no clear answer to questions about whether the Koran-burning was off permanently, what the New York City project had to do with it, and whether there were behind-the-scenes talks going on that could change things.

“We’re not going to tell you what’s going on!” Jones finally yelled to a crowd of nearly 100 journalists and a few onlookers.

After having just had a similar, frustrating exchange with Paul, who had stood with Jones at the 1 p.m. news conference to issue the ultimatum, the hot and cranky media horde had had enough.

“Are you just toying with us to get attention?” asked a sweaty woman in a suit, crouching to keep out of the shot of multiple cameras over her head.

The crowd groaned.

“Why did you give this two-hour window?” came a shout from another side of the scrum.

“So will you say you’re going to burn a Koran anytime you want press coverage?” snapped a reporter with a German accent.

“We’re negotiating,” said Jones, his maroon T-shirt soaked through with sweat — but he refused to say what they were negotiating or with whom. And he kept repeating a tantalizingly ambiguous refrain: There will be no Koran-burning at 6 p.m. Saturday night.

“You’re just using us! We should all leave!” someone yelled from deep in the media pack.

Silence – for a moment. “Yeah! Let’s all leave!”

Jones’s response: “Fine, we’re not press hungry, go!”

But no one moved, until Jones turned and shuffled back to the church.

Clusters of police officers stood beneath a tree. “We know what you all know,” said Cpl. Tscharna Senn, spokeswoman for the Gainesville police department, gesturing to the weary pack.

The media throng silently dispersed — some back under the trees, where flies (maybe seeking shade?) swarmed, or for the lucky, to air-conditioned satellite trucks or cars. The only sound was a small group of college-age protesters that had gathered across the street in the otherwise quiet neighborhood.

“When our Muslim brothers are under attack, what do we do? Fight back!” came the chant.

Left standing in the middle of the field were two cameramen.

“See, if everyone leaves except for a few people, something could happen,” said one.

The other nodded, his face drenched with sweat.

  1. * What does Terry Bones do with a Koran?

    Smart dresser – tie, shades, but … no booties! Disrespect for sensitivities!

  2. Precisely, which is why Obama or his minders would have a Christian symbol covered over during his speech – try obscuring a muslim symbol, or moving a mosque … OK to disrespect Christians, but not
    muslims …

    [ Jesus Missing From Obama’s Georgetown Speech
    White House asked university to cover symbol]

    [Amidst all of the American flags and presidential seals, there was something missing when President Barack Obama gave an economic speech at Georgetown University this week — Jesus.

    The White House asked Georgetown to cover a monogram symbolizing Jesus’ name in Gaston Hall, which Obama used for his speech, according to]

  3. More on Obama’s commitment to diversity and American values:

    [Surprising word today that President Barack Obama’s White House asked Georgetown University to cover all religious symbols at the scene of the president’s economic speech at the Roman Catholic institution Wednesday.

    And the prestigious Jesuit university agreed.]

    * He didn’t burn the symbols, but he made sure they were obscured.

  4. Another article on Obama’s tolerant American values at work …

    Obama at Georgetown: No Jesuit seal

    [ When the president speaks, the picture is everything.

    There were plenty of flags arrayed on stage when President Barack Obama delivered his midday address on the economy this week at Georgetown University.

    But there was no Jesus.]

    [Georgetown covered up the monogram “IHS”– symbolizing the name of Christ on the pediment of the stage where Obama spoke in Gaston Hall because the White House had asked the Jesuit-run university to cover up all signs and symbols there.]

    * Why not just burn the symbols, instead of covering them and feigning values of “diversity”, “tolerance” and similar new age babble.

  5. An old one for eid:

    Let me tell you a story ’bout a man named Ahmed
    Brainwashed Jihadi wanted lots of brothers dead
    Then one day as they celebrated Eid
    He blew himself up and really made them bleed

    Blood that is
    Red gold
    Terrorist tea
    So have another helpin’ of Mo’s hospitality
