Machetegate: A Quick Update

As of this moment, we have 40 MSM stories on the adventures of Nick Bergamini and Mark Klibanov and no new information. There is, however, this mysterious post on Mr. Klibanov's Facebook page:
The knife vs. machete distinction is not so important--but a three on three fight? Where did the third guy come from suddenly? He's definitely talking about the same incident; his link goes to Bergamini's original account.

PS. Tim Hudak has denounced the alleged attack, and the Jewish Defense League (JDL) is off to Ottawa to knock some heads together.

Where did the third guy come from suddenly?

It's Harry Lime.

Anyone else a fan of The Third Man? ;)

Plus, I thought the initial altercation at the bar was them against a group of 10-15 guys... now it's a fair fight?

Well, I think he's talking about the 2nd altercation which was origionally said to be three machete wielding arabs vs. Nick and Mark. Now the latter two seem to have acquired an ally.

Damn, I was saving that "Machetegate" hed.

There are more holes in this story than you can shake a stick at.

Incidentally, when I do post, I'm stealing Tiggy's "Hassan chop!" idea.

How many of those who think this is a hoax thought the same thing about the Toronto 18?

It seems to me that in response to the shrieking from the Right that all Muslims are terrorists is a reluctance to think any Arab or Muslim could ever commit a hate crime. It's as if that being so would prove the Right to be correct, but it doesn't follow at all.

Perhaps not quite a hoax, but likely a recounting of the tale whereby certain details have been inflated, by way of sensation-enhancing recreational substances.

What's wrong with that type of speculation, when one considers the barely credible source for this tale.
