BlazingCatFur went to a fundraiser for Mohammed Elmasry’s magazine, featuring the notorious Yvonne Ridley.

Then the evening took an almost pathetic turn. Elmo began his fundraising effort in earnest. He asked the crowd, which numbered possibly 200 at most; Who would be the 1st to pledge Ten Thousand Dollars? An awkward and prolonged silence was met by a revised supplication. Who would be the 1st to pledge Five Thousand Dollars? Barely a murmur was heard. Plaintively Elmo asked; Who would be the 1st to pledge One Thousand Dollars? At this point I hung my head in a sense of almost empathetic embarrassment.

Apparently, one hand did go up at the back. But it was just a minor Saudi sheik beating his fourth wife.
