    Even the radical lefties at the Democratic Underground understand that Jane Goodall is a senile old bitch:

  2. Min says:

    I think that it is time for fascists to leave Europe. But where to? Antarctica, I suppose.

  3. Gingerbaker says:

    Is it time for the Palestimians to leave Israel?

  4. Gingerbaker says:

    A “bitch”?? Why would you use such a word? There is absolutely nothing in your link which suggests Goodall is either nasty or a dog.

    And I wouldn’t be so quick to denigrate every critic of GM food safety. A lot of the possible biological effects of these preparations have not even been looked into, because this is food, not a drug.

    It’s “the Jews” the same way it would be “the Catholics” or “the Protestants” or “the Pastafarians”. It’s a common reference to a group of individuals with a similar interest, I don’t see why it’s such a problem for you. It’s not like it was used derisively that I can tell….
