mutiny and a bounty

British Lord In Spot Of Bother After Putting $10 Million Bounty on Barack Obama’s Head

Appropriate Bon Jovi lyrics hereLord Ahmed of Rotherham, a suspiciously Muslin-sounding Labour peer, was suspended last night after allegedly claiming he would put up a £10million bounty for the capture of Barack Obama, for pallin’ around with terrists and also for putting up a $10 million bounty of his own for Hafiz Muhammed Saeed, the alleged orchestrator of the 2008 Mumbai attacks. Ahmed is seeking retribution for the bounty placed on Mr. Saeed, who help create Lashkar-e-Taiba, a militant group. Ahmed calls it an ‘insult to all Muslims.’ The US stands firm insisting that it is only intended to insult the completely batshit Muslim extremists.

Ahmed was born in Pakistan and is Britain’s first Muslim peer. He feels Mr. Obama ‘challenged the dignity of the Muslim Ummah (community). The bounty is not just for President Obama. The offer is also extended to the capture of Citizen George W. Bush. The US strongly condemns the placing of any bounty on President Obama and let it be known to everyone that nobody puts Barry in a corner. The US also gave a strong message when it announced that Citizen Bush likes to make a midnight run to Whataburger alone every Saturday in his blue pickup truck.

Ahmed’s remarks caused an immediate suspension according to a Labour spokesperson.

“We have suspended Lord Ahmed pending investigation. If these comments are accurate we utterly condemn these remarks which are totally unacceptable. ”

Patrick Mercer, Tory MP for Newark and former chairman of the Commons counter-terrorism sub-committee, gave a statement regarding Ahmed’s words.

“I struggle to see how encouraging the detention of the President of the United States fits with membership of the Lords, one of our great parliamentary institutions. There is a major distinction between the President of a great democracy and a man who, although only a suspect, is wanted in connection to a terrible atrocity.”

When Ahmad was asked how he felt about the suspension he couldn’t believe it. It soon became obvious to all involved that everyone has been lying but him.

“They have suspended me? That’s a surprise to me. I did not know. I never said those words. I did not offer a bounty. I said that there have been war crimes committed in Iraq and Afghanistan and those people who have got strong allegations against them – George W Bush and Tony Blair – have been involved in illegal wars and should be brought to justice. I do not think there’s anything wrong with that. If the Labour Party want to suspend me I will deal with the Labour Party. They will have to give me some evidence.”

Ten minutes after Ahmed made his statement, he placed a bounty on anyone who is able to provide proof that he placed a bounty. [DailyMail]

    Stories about brown people from the Daily Mail are not to be relied upon, since that newspaper is basically a bigot's paradise.

    • Callyson

      I've heard that the locals call it the Daily Fail.

      • b[redact]opple

        Or, the Daily Hate Mail, also, too.

      • sewollef

        Back in the day, the Daily Mail actually supported Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists in the run up to WWII. And in more recent times, it has been known to 'downplay' racist attacks as "isolated incidents".

        As far as I understand it, the family that owned it back then, owns it now in some kinda 'trust'.

      • doloras

        Or the Daily Heil.

    Total fake. Newark's voted pure Labour for as long as I can remember.

        Totally. Now, Bergen County? That's Tory. Basking Ridge? Tory. But Newark, never.

          Really?

          Yes, I have a kid at UDel, where they put the emphasis on the second syllable, so as to make it sound like an ark which is new (which presumably was the intent all along).

    "they will have to give me some proof"

    Funny how someone can be such an intermittent fan of due process.

    Dick. Dick needs a bounty on his head. Preferably, wrapped around his neck.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Wait, Newark has a Member of Parliament? Hey, Britain, never mind about that whole "taxation without representation" thing. Our bad.

      Cory Booker now represents Newark in Parliament because New Jersey is just no longer big enough for him.

    Is this Erik guy from Texas? That's a pretty damned localized reference.

      They have them in other shithole locations, ex. Phoenix…

    • Terry

      Oh, I love me some Whataburger. In the mid-80's, used to have to drive up to College Stagnation, excuse me, College Station from Galveston fairly regularly and the only thing that made that frickin trip bearable was the Whataburger, there by where Hwy 6 makes that odd right turn. Hempstead, TX, I think.

  • http://www.wonkette.com ManchuCandidate

    We know how this will end. Greedo comes looking for Barry, mentions something about British Lords who have "no use for Preznits who drop their Hellfires at the first sign of an Islamic terrorist." Then Obama shoots first.

    • Boojum

      And the tea angers go nuts because a blah shot first. "Hypocrits! Zimmerman forevar!"

      Edit: Autocorrect has become aware. It changed "teabaggers" to "tea angers".

    Lesson number one of the British media:

    NEVER trust the Daily Mail. Especially when they print something apparently damaging about a Labour politician. This is the paper that endorsed Hitler, and went downhill from there.

    Ten million Bounty? That's a lot of paper towels.

        How hot could he be if he's 10 million pounds?

          True. You have a point. But, we could hope the distribution of those pounds would yeild a proportioned body and one huge weewee. <g>

    • Dashboard Buddha

  • SayItWithWookies

    Last week my favorite right-wing radio personalities were making a huge stink about the New Black Panthers putting an alleged million-dollar bounty on George Zimmerman's head — nevermind that the NBP is two guys who have a stick and a beret between them. Anyway, I'm sure they're right now being equally indignant about Lord Ahmed of Woofington's little publicity stunt.

  • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

    These places' names such as "Whataburger" make me laugh til the tepid coffee shoots out my nose — until I realize someday this could be my employer. "Name?" "Mumbletypeg." "Place of employment?" "Whataburger." It is no longer funny-sounding when you realize how unemployable you are if/when one's current employment should get budget-bulldozed.

    Still Erik — that image of Dubya gunnin' the motor for his late-nite snack is priceless.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      In the current economy, Whataburger is only accepting applications from job-seekers with a masters or PhD.

      • http://whateveritisimagainstit.blogspot.com trampndirtdown

        Must be currently employed also too.

  • SmutBoffin

    Maybe this can be worked into a new episode of The Bounty Hunter, with that blond mullett guy and his fat big bosomed wife going to the White House and breaking down some doors.

    "we utterly condemn these remarks which are totally unacceptable. ”

    Now see, a person from anyplace normal would say this. Had the dude been a US Representative, the official statement would have been, "while we strongly disagree with the gentleman from Bugfuckistan, we respect his right to express those views. Then they'd bring in David Vitter to give him a big 'ol hug.

    • redarmyzombie

      Well, not if he's Muslin…

      Republicans would just smirk and blame the "liberal media" or pull that "we are sorry if you are offended" stupidity.

      Not remotely accurate – there's noone sleeping on the benches of the House.

      • mavenmaven

        If you see the actual movie, in the scene where O'Toole addresses the House of Lords, not only are they sleeping, but they are all dead skeletons. Its a movie well worth watching, O'Toole's performance is brilliant and quite terrifying.

    Ahmed's picking on the wrong presidents. George Washington was just voted Britain's greatest enemy.

    This may seem a little dated, but even centuries later, feelings are apparently still raw. Matthew Hughes of London's Brunel University called him "not particularly pleasant ideologically." Harsh.

    This is bad news for Barry. He can't do the usual "let's split the difference, we're all agreeable agree-ers who happen to disagree" beer summit because of the basic disagreement between our undrinkably cold piss-inducing (slightly) alcohol-containing fermented beverage versus their equally undrinkable warm piss-inducing fermented beverage.
