His article essentially argues:

  1. The 9/11 and 7/7 hijackers all frequented gyms.
  2. So maybe gyms are good recruiting grounds for terrorist.
  3. This is supported by the fact that his really bad guy used gyms to indoctrinate the terrorists he already recruited.
  4. Therefore, ``Today's gym culture seems like the perfect vehicle for nurturing the combination of narcissism and loathing of the masses necessary to carry out a terrorist suicide mission.''

But even he realizes that this will stand up, so he has a further argument.

  1. The 9/11 hijackers shaved their entire bodies.
  2. Many body-builders shave their entire bodies.
  3. Therefore, Islamic terrorists and body builders share a good deal of internal movtivation, namely disdain for the masses which are viewed as being weak, wasteful and impure.


There is no more degenerate kind of state than that in which the richest are supposed to be the best.
