It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from Sam Biddle. He got moved up to the main Gawker site (or banished from Valleywag, depending on your take), and has been writing the same sort of trash that he wrote before. The only difference is, now he writes about general interest stuff, instead of tech. It hasn’t made him any less insufferable, that’s for sure. As a matter of fact, the last article I did about Biddle, concerned him stealing a photog’s work without proper credit or remuneration. That’s bad, but not as bad as his recent post.

I know we’ve been talking a lot about jihad lately, but it just seems to keep coming up. Biddle’s new post deals with it as well. It’s called: The ISIS Babies Are Freaking Adorable, and it’s written in a supposedly snarky way. The only problem is, you can’t really tell it’s snark. It seems to be more admiration and enjoyment, rather than derision and sarcasm. Here’s a section:

“One of the things you learn when you spend any time reading ISIS Twitter is that ISIS Twitter is filled with the cutest darn jihadis you’ve ever seen.

There’s basically no context provided for any of these images, popular among Twitter’s thriving ISIS and ISIS sympathizer community—mostly just tots posing before the increasingly iconic al-rāya black flag. Most of these come from Twitter user Osman Iraqi, who maintains a feed consisting mostly of beheading video stills, Islamist cartoons, and combat photos. And… babies!”

There is a paragraph at the end of the piece that’s a little bit better, but I would argue that ISIS getting to broadcast their propaganda on a platform like Gawker is a huge win, regardless. It’s an even bigger win when an idiot (I won’t throw him in with #FullMcIntosh yet) like Same Biddle is on the case. How fucking dumb can you be? Many readers were about as amused as I am:Selection_636


Gawker, disgusting decent people everywhere, as usual. Every time I think they can’t get any lower, they always do. I’m not sure what they have planned next, but hopefully it’s not more gifted propaganda victories for terrorists.

  1. Fuuuuuuurst

    I guess I AM a hate campaign. I fukken hate Gawker Media and the disgusting things their employees do.

  2. Waiting for the inevitable backpedal into “we were just joking hurr durr” territory. Gawker and Co. have always been bullies of the worst sort. When called to account, they (sometimes) meekly utter a shit apology and go back to being whiny, bullying bullshitters they’ve made a business out of.

    Here’s to hoping these dreary cunts get smacked with another seven figure loss that can be pinned on trollbaiter Biddle.

    1. There is no meek at all in their apologies. It is more of a ‘sorry but you are too sensitive brah’

      1. If We are talking about the sludge in my drain. then I don’t we should touch it unless we are wearing a full on hazmat suit.

  3. Where as I don’t on principal believe this is beyond humour. My principals mean its not something I’d joke about publically, especially in a “professional” capacity, but then I don’t work for Gawker I guess. Only with friends and always at the expense of ISIS. Sometimes defending freedom of speech is ugly, but he has the right to be a reprehensible scumbag.

      1. Not gonna argue that point, just sayin freedom of speech UBER ALLES, but with that in mind fuck that bullying and ISIS endorsing fag, wouldn’t waste my piss on him if he was on fire, but he’s a allowed to talk.

    1. No one is saying that Biddle can’t say what he wants to say, or should be silenced – he has 100% right to say it.

      But we also have the 100% right to call him a disgusting, click-baiting sleaze.

      1. I noes that, I thought freedom of speech UBER ALLES, covered all those points. Also cf: but with that in mind fuck that bullying and ISIS endorsing fag, wouldn’t waste my piss on him if he was on fire, but he’s a allowed to talk.
        I can copy pasta 2

  4. Perhaps he should put this in another expensive tweet like mcintosh did! After all his classic call to “bring back bullying” was likely the most impact he ever had on…well anything really!

    1. God dammit, how did I end up posting the same thing as guest simultaneously. I can’t even delete it. It looks like I’m spamming Muppet babies.

  5. And these are the dipshits that Intel threw themselves behind, huh?

    Hey, Intel, how’s that going to work out for you, now that your “partners” are obvious terrorist sympathizers?

  6. Sadly these idiots are not the only ones.

    Charlie Hebdo has hipster kids posting that they are “racist” but “still entitled to free speech for their racism” and comparing them to the KKK – Never mind the fact that Charlie Hebdo wasn’t mocking anyone’s ethnicity, but a religion, and not just a religion, a religion that got people killed over said mockery, a religion that fuels ethnic genocide in ISIS (which is a much better comparison to the KKK than Charlie Hebdo in my opinion)

    #Je suis Charlie

  7. I know, instead of #Notyourshield #gamergate just needs to start posting cute baby pictures to get some snarky love from Gawker. Yeah baby.
