Radio Derb Asks Two Questions and Offers an "Impertinent Speculation"

The two questions the Derb asks after "Muslims thank Brits for taking them in" in London last week — Why Are We There? Why Are They Here? Indeed. Yet to ask these two questions puts one beyond the pale, earning one the enmity of both the neolibs and neocons, and the mark of an extremist.

The "impertinent speculation" John Derbyshire, himself a mysterian, makes was response to this video — Ha! Wolf Blitzer Asks Atheist Tornado Survivor If She 'Thanked The Lord'. He speculates that this "Beltway bandit" finding himself in "flyover country" "just naturally assumed that anyone he would meet would be a fundamentalist Christian and he tried to strike an appropriately patronizing tone." (This one of the rare instances in which this blogger found himself cheering on an atheist; the other was when a Turkish student declared his atheism in a class full of Saudis.)
