More on Shoebat

Everyone knows about the story of Walid Shoebat, who has been invited to speak at UWM. There has been some controversy about UWM officials wanting to charge an excessive security fee to the student group that had invited Shoebat to speak. Sykes, Belling and McBride all chimed in about how unfair this was, which it was, until the UWM officials did the right thing and dropped the extra security fee.

The Brawler expressed agreement with letting Shoebat speak, but pointed out that the outrage of his appearance is perfectly understandable. He also pointed out the hypocrisy of Sykes, who was yet again using selective outrage.

But, showing that Brawler wasn't the only intellectual in the Cheddarsphere, Tim Rock of Other Side did a little more research into the matter of who is Walid Shoebat. His conclusion: Shoebat is a charlatan.

Too bad for the right-wing squawker brigade that they can't hold a candle to these two intellectuals, or are willing to do basic research before they get their feathers all ruffled.
