Dejected Robert Spencer Crows over being Exposed in Chicago Tribune

Spencer with fellow anti-Muslim writer Bostom during happier days.  (Bostom too has accused Spencer of fake scholarship since).

Robert Spencer is indeed a strange breed. He has curiously thin skin for someone who is a career bigot and hatemonger. He freely throws punches (that mostly miss) but cries to the heavens when any are thrown back (maybe because they usually land).

I mean if you are going to put yourself out there as a bigot, you may not want to cry yourself to sleep every time someone calls you out as one.

Grow some gonads.

Robert Spencer “the acclaimed scholar” makes a living painting Muslims as murderers, terrorists, misogynists, liars, hypocrites, thugs, and bloodthirsty savages.

But then when the Washington Post’s Michelle Boorstein correctly characterized him as anti-Muslim, he throws a hissy fit, arguing that she “smeared” and “maligned” poor little Spencer, and even put his life in danger.

You could not make this stuff up. The man is plain bonkers. (Spencer’s tearjerker of a schoolboy letter to Boorstein is a riot to read and is a must see for every Silly-Spencer lover.)

Now, his feelings are hurt again.

This time the ego-bruised Mr. Spencer goes after the Chicago Tribune’s Manya Brachear, one of the few objective religion reporters left in the newsroom business. Spencer is reeling from Tribune religion blog contributor Ahmed Rehab outing him as:

“a long-time anti-Muslim goon from the annals of the hate blogosphere.”

Sounds like an apt characterization of Spencer alright.

Browsing you will find plenty of evidence that corroborate this description of Robert Spencer.

Browse Spencer’s very own and you will find it bursting with a thousand more examples of Spencer’s anti-Muslim looniness, personal megalomania, and general creepiness.

And yet Spencer apparently is soft in the center and needs to shed a tear for his hurt feelings when people call him “mean things.”

But here’s the best part:

Spencer has the wool pulled so deeply over his eyes that he utters the name of “David Duke” to describe someone who criticizes him, apparently while completely oblivious to the irony of the analogy: Spencer’s rabid Islamophobia being an identical counterpart to David Duke’s brand of anti-Semitism.

Perhaps the “scholar” Mr. Spencer, can heal the pain inflicted upon him by truth tellers Ms. Brachear and Mr. Rehab by singing himself a soft lullaby filled with his heartwarming bigoted and hateful rants against Muslims.

Here’s the Tribune article, enjoy (hat tip:

  1. Haha that Spencer letter was hilarious. He can dish it out but he can’t take it. He considers himself “anti-oppression”. That’s funny!

  3. If anything, to draw analogies between Spencer and David Duke, is an insult to David Duke. The latter has, to some extent moderated his views and largely criticizes Zionism and not Jews. Spencer has gone on an all out attack on Muslims and Islam.

  4. LOL, its funny how the Islamophobes do not want to admit that they are Islamophobes (instead, they go on a rant of how they are anti- this and anti- that…which leans towards identifying Islam). If the cap fits, wear it, Mr. Spencer!

  5. I come to this site before I sleep.It gives me comic relief.Keep it up.You are doing RS a big favor.Can you people do stand up comedy ?

  6. You can tell that Spencer is very hurt when he starts spluttering a gizzillion superlatives in one sentence:

    “Dhimmi pseudojournalistic pro-Islamic supremacist propagandist Manya Brachear”

    looool… wow, the Bob’s really hurtin’ there.

    What a fat fool.

  7. Here is another loon exposed.

    “Infamous Pastor Terry Jones, known for his activism against the Gainesville Florida mayor, and for his “Burn a Koran Day” has been arrested for possession of child pornography. Wednesday August 4, 2010 Pastor Terry Jones was arrested for sharing pictures of children in various states of nudity over the popular file sharing network Limewire.”

  8. Did you guys read the comments below? God people are nuts. Not once did they try to tacle any of the arguements presented in the article.
