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.

Yes, Virginia, There Really Is Islamophobia

I’ve not waded into the recent back and forth between Glenn Greenwald, Sam Harris and a few others over accusations of Islamophobia. I haven’t had the time to look up different statements used as evidence of Islamophobia on the part of Harris, Hitchens and Dawkins, and without doing that I don’t think I have any …

Gaffney and the Conservative Alternate Reality

Frank Gaffney, the absolutely unhinged Islamophobe, is clearly living in an alternate reality, a parallel universe in which President Obama is a Muslim and little more than a tool of the reactionary Muslim terrorists. Here he is on the Janet Mefferd show talking about the guy who made that Innocence of Muslims video:

Geller Takes Out Gay-Themed Anti-Muslim Ads

Pam Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative has taken out ads on buses in San Francisco, to run later this month that include a series of quotes from Muslim leaders about the evils of homosexuality, ostensibly to gain sympathy in the notoriously pro-equality city. Here are those quotes:

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Spencer vs CPAC

One of the things I find endlessly amusing is watching the really really far right attack the really far right as not being crazy enough. Robert Spencer and his pal Pam Geller do this whenever anyone on the right even suggests that maybe they’ve taken things a bit too far, accusing them of being tools …

Dawkins and the False Dichotomy

On Sunday, Richard Dawkins tweeted the following: Decent, nice, liberal people must stop being so terrified of being thought “Islamophobic” and stand up for decent, nice, liberal values.
