Muslims Are Goat-Fuckers

Writing that piece on Theo van Gogh this morning was tricky. Do I apologetically acknowledge some of the real nasty shit that he said? Or do I white-wash it, and pretend it never happened?
I did neither in the end. His words are his, and I am not responsible for them. In the bigger picture, it didn't matter what he said.
It also got me thinking on the nature of satire, irony, tongue in cheek and what have you. My reaction to an overtly PC 'tut tut' is to respond louder, brasher and even more obnoxious, gladly overstepping the mark to make a point. Especially if free expression is on the line.
You don't like me pointing out that some Muslims are terrorists, specifically citing their religion as sanction for their actions? You don't think I should say that some, and not an amount as small as you think, are bent on world subjugation to Islam? What's that? I shouldn't upset them because that's what leads to the violence? Fuck you then, MUSLIMS ARE GOAT FUCKERS! Yep, that's right, all of 'em! You heard me, FUCK YOU AND YOUR MUSLIM GOAT-MOLESTING FRIENDS! DIE IN A FIRE GOAT-FUCKERS!
Now, does anyone who knows me really think I feel that way? I hope not, an actual belief in that sort of bile is just... . But what have I really done? I have accused adherents to a particular way of thinking, a particular, consciously chosen religion, of bestiality. That's all! This is no different to:
Now while that might get me a torrent of hate mail from the respective groups, and even some PC tut tutting, NOT A ONE OF THEM would land me an accusation of "phobia" of any kind, or an accusation of racism. What Theo said, wasn't actually all that bad, and I'm starting to see what may have led him to say it... fucking goat-fuckers!
