Imagine if the scientific research belonging to a scholar of marine biology was accessible online via the URL "fuckmarinebiology.com" or if a scholar of Jewish Studies put out his material under the URL "fuckyahweh.com" or "fuckjudaism.com".
What would that say about the scholarly ways of such a scholar? Would such a buffoon be taken seriously by anyone? Would his work carry an ounce of credibility?
Well imagine no more, Loonwatch has gone digging and sure enough, Robert Spencer, a long discredited anti-Muslim hatemonger posing as an "Islam scholar" has shown his scholarly objective ways with the heinously named URL's "fuckallah.com" and "fuckislam.com" redirecting to his cesspool of subjectivity, the David Horowitz funded hate blog, Jihadwatch.org.
In doing so, Robert Spencer may have been trying to actively market his hate material to like-minded audiences. It is a well known fact that keywords are a crucial factor in the popularity of a blog. This is damning evidence of the true gutter intent behind his little blog project which is to attract and further incite those with Islamophobic tendencies, his primary audience.
In that respect, Jihadwatch.org has grown into a special-interest niche, a hate cult that attracts a small but vociferous number of anti-Muslim Spencer groupies while having little credibility with the mainstream.
Now, it is often said that hatemongers are cowards, and we believe that Robert Spencer is no exception. So expect Spencer - now that he has been publicly exposed- to try to wiggle his way out of this one . Expect him to deny responsibility, claim ignorance, and deflect blame.
