Far Right Fueling Anti-Americanism in Egypt

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.

Rios Repeats Right Wing Lies. Film at 11.

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.

Wingnuts Want TN Mosque Seized

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.

Wingnut: Muslims, Mexicans Killed Detriot

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:

Deace: The Duggars Our Last Best Hope

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:

Australia Has Wingnuts Too

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.

Islamophobia in Action

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, …

Wingnuts: Muslim Cultural Center is a Plot!

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.

Farah-founded Group Identifies ‘Terrorists’ in Obama Administration

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 …

OMG! Muslims Want Days Off for Holidays!

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’s Anecdotal Idiocy

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 …

The Battle Within Islam

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, …

Why Moderate Muslims Matter

William Saletan makes a point that I have been making for years, which is that in our fight to remain safe from the attacks of Muslim extremists, our most important allies are moderate Muslims (who are often at as much risk from such attacks as we are).

Wingnuts: Turn In Al Qaeda School Board Members

John Guandolo is the former FBI agent who was fired for a sex scandal, now turned professional Islamophobe. This is the whacko who claimed that John Brennan had converted to Islam and is now a Muslim terrorist. He went on Rick Wiles’ radio show and delivered an absolutely bizarre statement about wanting Americans to turn …

Fischer: Ban Muslims From Coming to America

In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, Bryan Fischer is once again beating the drum for banning all Muslims from entering the country. Because remember, the First Amendment only applies to Christians, who generously allow others to have their freedom but retain the right to stop doing so any time they please.
