J.K. Rowling Is Sending Messages to Al Quaeda

No, really. I read it on myspace.com:

America is on a path to a greater threat then we thought. It is those wicked Harry Potter books. The reason why Harry Potter is a terrorist threat, for the spells in the books are speical [sic] codes for terrorist groups in the middle east. The characters represent well known terrorist [sic] who have attack [sic] our borders. This is why we should ban these books from our schools. So, that no child would be

influence [sic] by these materials of mass killings on a free country. There is also popular podcast like PotterCast, MuggleCast who are spreading words of prasie [sic] to this horrible book of evil. And they must be stop, [sic] so that they won't brainwash anymore children with their terrorist views and support. They are the reason for the VT shooting, causing that boy to commit an act of mass murder all because of a internet show that talk [sic] about the evil that is in Harry Potter.


And it seems that Laura Mallory of Loganville Georgia does more to fight the creeping menace of Potterism than just blog. This "mother of three faithful and pure children" went to court to get the Gwinnett County School system to take the Harry Potter books out of the school library. She lost, probably because she apparently failed to try to make the al-Quaeda connection in state court. She may, however, be taking her fight to Federal Court, where if she tries to make the terrorist/Virginia Tech connection, she might just win. I mean, look at all the other civil liberties they've been willing to forego any time anyone raises those particular boogeymen.

I dream of becoming so famous that the bible thumpers will sit around coming up with whacked-out conspiracy theories about me. That's how you know you've arrived.

Sad. Just sad.

If she does take it to Federal court. the state's defense team should make sure she gets put on the stand and then ask one very simple question:

Have you ever read any of the books?

Since she would be under oath she would have to say 'no'.


She has gone on record before this as saying she has not and will not read the books. She's not merely ignorant but is willfully so. And proud of it!

Personally I think they need to make her pay back all the taxpayer money she's wasted persuing this idiotic 'quest' of hers.

Man, she ain't right in the haid. Keep sharp objects away from this one.
