“Michigan Muslims plot Islamic-Law Court” screams the Worldnetdaily headline. OMG! Sharia law coming to Michigan! People being beheaded! Christians thrown in prison! Run away, run away! The article is actually a perfect example of WND’s “journalism.” This is the sum total of the relevant text in the article:

John Guandolo, the disgraced former FBI agent (he got canned for having sex with a witness in a case) turned hyperbole purveyor about Muslim terrorism, seems to think that Tennessee is a hotbed of Sharia law. This is also the idiot who claims that CIA Director John Brennan is a secretly Muslim double agent.

The National Report, a political satire website, published an article about the city of Dearborn, which is about 50% Arab and Muslim, voting to become the first city to make Sharia law enforceable. Naturally, right wing websites missed the fact that it was a parody and repeated it as factual without doing any research.

Chris Hayes had a report Monday night about how statements from Rep. Louis Gohmert about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the Obama administration are being used in Egypt to fuel anti-American sentiment. Talking Points Memo reports on the same thing.

This is probably going to come as a big shock to you, so you might want to sit down before reading it. Sandy Rios of the American Family Association is repeating tired old right wing lies that were debunked years ago but continue to circulate in emails sent between morons.

The fact that Frank Gaffney and his fellow Islamophobes continue to try to prevent a Muslim congregation in Mufreesboro, TN from opening a larger mosque to accommodate their numbers shows just how obsessed and irrational they are. Now they’re asking the TN Supreme Court to seize the new building.

I’d never heard of Frosty Woolridge before finding a link to this column on a wingnut website. He’s an anti-immigration activist who has been everything from a dance teacher to a “lifestyle coach.” Whatever the hell that is. He used to live in Detroit but he says stupid things like this:

Wingnut radio show host Steve Deace turned the crazy up to 11 on his show last week, claiming that Muslims are outbreeding Christians and that 20 million jihadis will be hunting down our children and grandchildren — unless the Duggars keep having children. This is some serious crazy:

It’s almost refreshing to see that America isn’t the only country with wingnuts ready to flip out over anything even remotely non-Christian. A new cabinet official there was sworn in on the Quran instead of the Bible and a whole lot of people lost their minds over it.

More video is coming out from that event held in Tennessee last week by a Muslim group, prompted by a local politician posting a meme on his Facebook page showing a shotgun pointed at the camera and saying “how to wink at a Muslim.” Pam Geller and hundreds of others showed up to protest it, …

The Worldnutdaily is predictably freaking out over a Turkish-American Cultural Center being built in Maryland. To prove their point, they’re dragging out two entirely credible sources to rant incoherently about how this is all part of a plot to take over America.

The Western Center for Journalism, founded by Worldnutdaily owner Joseph Farah, is exactly as bad as that fact would lead one to assume. This article by Gerald Todd is a textbook example of yellow journalism, so bad that it might actually be legally actionable. He casually calls a group of Obama administration officials terrorists without …

The Worldnutdaily has an article sure to spur much outrage in its readers, noting that the Council on American-Islamic Relations is petitioning a school in Maryland to add two Muslim holidays to its calendar of days off from school for teachers and students.

Erik Rush is really quite ridiculous. After declaring in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings that all Muslims should be killed, he now decides to play pretend and claim that he’s being criticized merely for using the word Muslim. He says that now “publicly uttering ‘Muslim’ now brings accusations of bigotry.” Uh, no. It …

Though many believe that reactionary Islam is at war with “Western” values of tolerance and human rights — not without reason, of course — it’s also true that there is a serious battle going on within Islam between modernist, moderate Muslims and anti-modern, anti-human rights extremists. Salam al-Marayati, president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, …
