Saleem at Calvin College Again

Fake “ex-terrorist” Kamal Saleem is going to be appearing here in West Michigan at several locations, sponsored by the American Decency Association, a tiny group of cranks that is little more than PO Box and a guy with an email address. One of those locations is at Calvin College in Grand Rapids. Right Wing Watch lists some of Saleem’s more bizarre claims:

Saleem has argued that President Obama is a Muslim who is using Roe v. Wade “to bring Sharia law” to the U.S. He maintains that Obama wants to make sure that “Sharia law will be supreme in America” by working with “Hamas to import Muslim people to the United States” and “legalizing terrorism.” Saleem even claims that “there are many generals who swore to destroy the United States of America are generals in the United States [military]” and that an Islamic shadow government is secretly running the U.S. through the Obama family babysitter.

They also note that when Saleem spoke at that college in 2007, a Christian professor there did some research and thoroughly debunked his claim to be an ex-terrorist. Naturally, Saleem accused him of being aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood. Then again, Saleem is one of a group of wingnuts who thinks everyone other than them are in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood.

    using Roe v. Wade “to bring Sharia law” to the U.S.

    Seems odd a brief check suggests there is no consensus among Islamic leaders on whether Sharia permits abortion or not.

  2. slc1:

    One wonders why Calvin College, alma mater of former Congressman and PhD physicist Vernon Uhlers, is giving this crackpot a forum.

  3. cottonnero:

    slc1: because there aren’t any sane people left in the Republican party. (Also, it’s Vern Ehlers., not Uhlers.)

  4. Modusoperandi:

    Then again, Saleem is one of a group of wingnuts who thinks everyone other than them are in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood.

    You just say that because you’re in bed with the Muslin Brotherhood.

    Obviously. They haven’t had to align their theology with the Catholics to defeat Obama yet.

    He needs to open his presentation with “Crazy Train!”

    Re cottonnero @ #3

    because there aren’t any sane people left in the Republican party.

    I don’t know how Mr. cottonnero can make such a statement. According to Michael Heath, Governor Snyder is sane.

  7. Raging Bee:

    …and that an Islamic shadow government is secretly running the U.S. through the Obama family babysitter.

    Well, we certainly can’t say he doesn’t have all bases covered. Oh wait, what about their dog?!

    Does this piss-artist really take himself seriously? That last bit sounds like something thrown in for comic relief.

    He forgot to mention the mandatory gay marriages to illegal immigrants that our Shariah overlords are planning to impose on all of us.

    “Naturally, Saleem accused him of being aligned with the Muslim brotherhood.”

    I smell a slander claim by Howard against Saleem.

  10. thebookofdave:

    I don’t have evidence yet, but I’m willing to bet Saleem is eligible to become president. His birth certificate will prove it (the long form, of course).
