So, as Fox News continues to beat the drum of baseless hate and slander towards American Muslims and the supposed “Ground Zero Mosque”, really an Islamic Community Center, FOX has repeatedly featured Dick Morris over the past few days. Dick has been seizing the opportunity to push his website and get signatures for a petition against the Park 51 Community Center and has been saying some batshit-insane lies about the center; allow me to share some of my favorites.
“To ask us to pay for their mosque, to rub our noses in it, after 9-11 and teach sharia law at that mosque is absolutely incredible.”
The utterly bullshit meme of “creeping sharia,” again. Plus how much tax money goes to fund Christian groups and pay the salary of Chaplins, not to mention tax breaks.
The community center is “designed to celebrate the attacks that killed 3,000 Americans”
Really?? I wonder sometimes why I lose faith in humanity every now and again, thanks Dick for reminding me.
“The proposed mosque near to ground zero is not really a religious institution. It would be — as many mosques throughout the nation are — a terrorist recruitment, indoctrination and training center. It is not the worship of Islam that is the problem. It is the efforts to advance Sharia Law with its requirement of Jihad and violence that is the nub of the issue.”
Dick, being ever the dick, even brings the funding by Imam Feisal Abdul into the equation and portrays the major NEWS CORP stockholder and occasional FOX news guest as a shadowy terrorist figure, months after the epic rebuttal of the issue where John Stewart highlighted the hypocrisy of this racist and mean spirited meme. Yet I have learned that some people are so insecure about their little lives, that the amount of reality they are able to deny is as vast as reality itself. /sigh…
