Fake Terrorist: Obama Wants Sharia Law

We have a relatively new group here called Transformation Michigan, group of serious wingnuts like you wouldn’t believe. They were one of the groups that organized that prayer rally at Ford Field a few weeks ago and they’ve been going all over the state announcing a divorce decree between the United States and Baal. Yeah, we’re talking some serious crazy here. And Rachel Tabachnick at Talk2Action reports on a conference call they held recently that included Kalam Saleem, one of the many fake “ex-terrorists” that are making money by claiming to be experts on terrorism. Saleem says Obama wants Sharia law.

Saleem: Let’s reveal what Shariah law says. What we have to fear the most as American nation is Shariah law . Because, even our president, he want to bring about Shariah law. He celebrated Eid Al-Fitr, which is Ramadan in the White House. Therefore, he’s about to break down Article 6 which is the heart of the Constitution, which is separation of the church and the government. If he breaks this, the Shariah law will be supreme in America, will be equal to the American governing.

So, in 20 years America will be completely changing from a culture of liberty, pursuit of happiness, glory, and victory, freedom of thought, freedom of speech, to basically living under the hate crime bills and also we’ll have to abide in a law that will be equal to our Constitution, which will be Islamic law.

Kaleem is a fraud and a moron. First of all, Article 6 says there can be no religious test for office. And this is a conference call hosted by an organization that unabashedly seeks “dominion” over the government and the official establishment of Christianity. And by the way, Bush celebrated Ramadan in the White House too. He invited lots of prominent Muslim leaders to the White House, hosted dinners for the event and sent out official proclamations recognizing the history of Ramadan. But Saleem didn’t claim he wanted to impose Sharia law. Nor has he offered even a remotely plausible way in which Sharia could possibly be imposed in this country. He either has serious paranoid delusions or he is trafficking in fear to make money.

    With conservative nutballs encouraging people to panic at the sight of any vaguely turban-shaped shadow, what’s left for the real terrorists to do?

    So, wanting the Muslim book of fairy tales to be the supreme law of the land is unconstitutional, but making the Christian book of fairy tales to be the supreme law of the land is what the Founding Fathers truly wanted.

    Have I got it right?

    Have any of these nuts figured out yet just how Islamobama is going to impose Sharia on America? Do they really believe that the US President is really a dictator?

    Oh, wait, from their screams when their preferred Presidents weren’t able to unilaterally impose their rules, I infer that, yes, they really do believe that the President has unlimited power.

    How do fundies vet the creds of a self-proclaimed ex-terrorist?

    That IS seriously crazy. Everyone knows the U.S. is in bed with Mammon, not Baal.

    There are only about 2 million Moslems in the USA.

    Many of those Moslems are in the USA precisely because it isn’t a Moslem country. They are refugees from Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Somalia, or Saudi Arabia. They came here to get away from the dysfunctional societies that fundie Islam produces.

    It simply isn’t possible for 2 million people to impose their Sharia law on a nation of 310 million who don’t want it.

    The xian kooks are just lying and fear mongering.

    IIRC, the wingnut fundie xians in Michigan are New Apostolic Reformation ones.

    They claim to have superpowers given to them by the gods.

    These powers seem mostly to be to lie a lot, say really stupid things, and scam a few bucks from religious morons.

    The fundie god isn’t looking too powerful here.

    Shit. I hope that doesn’t mean basketbaal. I’m counting on the Celtics to beat the Nicks on Christmas day!

    And, and, what about both of those footbaals and that foosbaal and that almost nekid beach volleybaals? Fans will run amok, I tells ya!

    This kind of stuff is so stupid on so many levels, it’s almost not worth getting into. I mean, it just piles wrongness upon wrongness in so many layers that you get lost just trying to sort out the delusions.

    I did find this part funny though:

    So, in 20 years America will be completely changing from a culture of liberty, pursuit of happiness, glory, and victory, freedom of thought, freedom of speech, to basically living under the hate crime bills…

    For some odd reason, the fundies impute hate crime laws with all sorts of magical properties, kind of like water fluoridation. To their stunted minds, a hate crimes bill is like the suspension of the rule of law, allowing totalitarian powers to reign free. Literally anything can follow from them. I’m sure that someone, at some point, took the time to explain that hate crime laws only tack on extra penalties to things that are already illegal, but it was apparently to no avail.

    It’s simpler than that.

    Hate is the foundation of their religion. Hate is one of their 3 main sacraments.

    No Hate = No Fundie Xianity.

    And they know it too. The very thought of not being allowed to hate makes them melt down into a puddle of…hate.

    Crap, we’re cheating on Baal? He (she, they) is gonna freak.

    And why haven’t I had any of that hot godly sex? Share, people!

    It was correctly pointed out this character is peddling fear. That would make him a current rather than an ex terrorist.

    He celebrated Eid Al-Fitr, which is Ramadan in the White House.

    Wow. That’s an awfully specific holiday.

    Maybe someone needs to organise a counter-group; Transformers Michigan. A bunch of people cosplaying as Optimus Prime, Megatron, Shockwave, Jazz etc who not only can counter their arguments but look way cooler doing it (as long as they’re doing the G1 cartoon versions, not something from those excremental films)

    Apparently they haven’t heard that Col. Cameron Mitchell, USAF, killed Baal several years ago.
