Colbert on the Muslim Mop Sink

Stephen Colbert noticed that ridiculous controversy in Tennessee over a mop sink in a men’s room that some terminally ignorant Republican legislators thought was installed to help Muslims wash their feet. Because there’s so many Muslims hanging around the Tennessee state capitol building.

    How much easier would it been for Jesus if they had this kind of thing installed in his time?
    Dingo

    And these people got themselves voted into office…how does that work then?

    Ahh!…yeah relying on paranoid, frightened and not so smart voters…works every time apparently!

  3. matty1:

    look a Muslim washing feet.

  4. karmacat:

    Damn. I knew all those mops were Muslim

  5. Lithified Detritus:

    What boggles my mind is that these idiots are so out of touch that they had apparently never seen a mop sink.

  6. bmiller:

    Tennessee is such a beautiful state, too. Sad.

  7. Trebuchet:

    Colbert had it all wrong on that mop. It was clearly the face of Jesus!

  8. Modusoperandi:

    The “mop sink” was really a Muslim trap (they’d see it and scuttle over to it in their Muslin way, “wash” their “feet” and, boom!, leg-hold trap, after which they’d be tazed, tagged and released in to the wild, where they’d be tazed again and told to go back to Siraq or Pakistine or wherever). That is the real reason why there are so few Muslins in Tennessee.

    Because having Muslims with dirty feet is better?

  10. jaytheostrich:

    At least they weren’t using it as a bidet.

    Here in Indianapolis a Baptist church protested the airport installing foot baths in the cabbies bath room. The non-Muslim cabbies didn’t much appreciate the mess that Muslim’s made washing their feet in the regular sinks so they were all for the new foot baths.

    The Baptists got some local press but luckily no one else gave a shit and the sinks went in.

    SHARIA LAW WINS AGAIN!!

    Ho hum.

    It’ll get worse come summer. You know those basins, about a yard square, into which you dip your feet at public swimming pools to prevent bringing communicable diseases into the water?
