Guess what – “there are no Muslims in America…except when we say so”

We were all saddened by the premature death of Steve Jobs, founder of Apple and one of the most imaginative and innovative entrepreneurs in history.

However, far from being respectful towards the memory of one of the men who has (inadvertently) made it possible for them to disseminate their turgid hate campaigns, the bogotariat has taken the opportunity to come to a breathtakingly stupid conclusion.

Horace Lim

So it seems according to cultural studies expert Horace Lim, Muslims are somehow not “capable” of producing the sort of creative genius possessed by Jobs (and by the non-Americans Horace compares him with).

Never mind that the work of Edison, Picasso and Da Vinci were ultimately products of the cultural and scientific explosion of the European Renaissance which in turn was a product of the cultural and scientific flowering of Europe during the period of the Islamic Caliphate.

In Edison’s case, would his work have been possible without the invention of modern mathematics (a Muslim development of Hindu ideas)?

But much to Horace’s surprise and chagrin this poster produces the following information


Shock horror!  Steve Jobs’ biological father is a Syrian Muslim!

One can now imagine a steady stream of bogots, foil hats firmly clamped on pointy heads,  returning their iPhones, iPods and iPads to their nearest Apple store in disgust, perhaps terrified about the Muslamic rays emanating from the OS from its Muslamic Rayguns.

Muslamic ray guns

We really don’t care whether Jobs was of Arab Muslim descent or a Calathumpian from Kazakhstan, but to the bogotry, “breeding” is regarded with all the fervour of a race-horse owner, especially when it comes to people of non-European non-Christian ancestry.

In fact Steve Jobs is just one of many prominent Americans either of Muslim descent, converts to Islam or who are currently Muslim who have been outstanding contributors to US life and culture. Muslim contact with the Americas are widely acknowledged to go back to the 12th Century.

And as far as Jobs’ Arab heritage, one Arab described Jobs as the world’s second most famous Arab (the first being the Prophet)

Perhaps the most famous American of Muslim descent is US President Barack Obama. President  Obama’s father Barack Hussein Obama Sr and stepfather Lolo Soetoro Mangunharjo were both Muslim by birth, though Obama Senior usually described himself as an atheist or agnostic. This of course has produced a collective buzzing and swarming of rednecks across the US, like blowflies at a barbecue, with echoes resonating here amongst the fuckwittery “intelligentsia” of Straya.

Of course the real reason for all this toxic spew is because Obama is black. But we don’t say that do we now Bonnie?

  1. I only got to know this when John Safran tweeted it,

    and this changed nothing, absolutely nothing of what I thought of Steve Jobs.
    I’m quite chuffed with myself 🙂 just the kind of soul searching reassurance 🙂

    And I wonder what people like Scott Pengelly have to say about that “super -‘WHITE’- gene” that he talks of all the time???

    I guess he will go on a 500+ word rant on how John Safran is a “leftist”, “liberal”, “atheist”, bla bla bla 😦
    .. and I just loved the title of this piece :,26268/

  2. I hope someone called that idiot (Horace Lim) out on his ridiculously stupid, uneducated comment. It would have been so sweet to watch him attempt to backpedal.

  3. I love when people have no concept of the world in the time following the fall of Rome til the European Renaissance, a time when most of the cultural/medical/mathematical etc. advancements were made by -gasp- followers of Islam. Dark Ages my eye. Ugh, I’m such a nerd on this subject.

  4. F*** Steve Jobs. The man was not a genius in the vein of Da Vinci or Vin Diesel even. He was a callous businessman out to feather his own nest and no more. If he was so keen on propagating this “useful” technology amongst all of us then why has Apple been so keen on suing everyone else who dares to market tablets and smart-phones often at a price more affordable than theirs? And why does nobody raise a hoo-ha about the conditions that workers endure at their China-based plants? Also, just why does the iPhone/iPad/iPod need updating every six months? All that is doing is making people want more shit they don’t need only to throw their old shit on to that great big growing mountain of e-waste which is posing a bigger and bigger hazard to the environment and to our health… especially to the health of those living in under-developed countries where this shit gets shipped in the vain hope that it gets recycled. Not to mention that damage that is done to the environment as it is stripped more and more of the rare materials required needed to make all those little gizmoes. And if the iPhone and iPad were meant to be such liberating experiences, why is it that you you have to pay for all the apps? Why no true freedom in how these devices are used? Wake up people! All Steve Jobs did was to advance the cause of consumerism and the quest for greed. It just so happens that he was very wealthy, and whenever a wealthy person dies the wealthy will use all their money and power to con us great unwashed into believing that that dead wealthy person had only our best interests at heart. Before you know it, when Rupert Murdoch dies, he’ll be lauded as a champion of free speech and liberal western democracy. But just as old Rupert is a robber-baron of media, Steve Jobs was simply a robber-baron of the information age.

  5. Lim got it wrong on so many counts. Edison was a businessman who exploited and patented the inventions of others, most notably Tesla. And yes, this tosser is in serious need of a history lesson before he spouts more crap.

    As for Steve Jobs, R.I.P., I’ll confess I’ve never taken an interest in his products (*shock, horror*) not least because I have neither the budget nor the inclination to buy into the six month iPod/Phone/Pad product cycle (per WarriorTom) to fill a perceived void in my life and/or stroke the ego.
