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:

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 …

Gohmert: Guns Needed to Stop Sharia Takeover

Rep. Louis Gohmert, who really must be the dumbest man in Congress (sorry, Steve King; keep trying), went on a right wing talk show and offered up a novel argument against gun control — it’s needed to stop the impending Sharia takeover of the country.

The Vanishing Threat of American Muslim Terrorism

And by vanishing, I don’t mean that the threat is disappearing, I mean that the threat is vanishingly small and always has been. A new study finds that there is very, very little threat of terrorist attacks from American Muslims despite the efforts of overseas Muslim reactionaries to create it. My former colleague Spencer Ackerman …

Jones Throws Fit About Muslim Books in Library

Rep. Walter Jones (R-NCrazy) is throwing a fit about a grant given to a community college in his district to buy books about Muslim culture. And apparently he thinks that the only people who would possibly want to learn anything about Muslim culture are Muslims:

Glazov: Obama Inviting Islamists to Invade

David Horowitz is thoroughly bugnutty, but one of his employees, Jamie Glazov, may be even worse. He went on the Janet Mefferd radio show — the place to be for paranoid right wing nutballs — and said that Obama has instituted speech codes and invited the Islamists to invade.

Report on ‘Pro-Muslim’ Bias in Texas School Backfires

A ridiculous chain email from a Tea Party nut claiming that the Irving School District in Texas was “indoctrinating children with Islam” led the school board to ask for a full investigation of the curriculum. The investigator found that the school was actually promoting Christianity, not Islam.

Farah’s Dishonest Handling of Polling Data

Over the last couple years, the Worldnutdaily has contracted with Wenzel Strategies to do polling, as many conservative groups do. And now he’s promoting a new poll by Wenzel that purports to show what Muslim-Americans really believe — naturally, it’s what Farah thinks they believe. But he wants to establish the poll’s credibility by emphasizing …

With the current two year session of the Michigan state legislature set to expire at the end of the year, and with it all submitted bills, the state House is set to take up HB 4769, which would prohibit the use of foreign or Sharia law if its use would violate the rights of any …

Fischer Joins the Bizarre Lipkin Conspiracy

Avi Lipkin isn’t the only one pushing this absurd idea that Obama is trying to import Muslims to take over the country. He isn’t talking about 50-100 million of them — at least not yet — but he’s still claiming that Obama, and the all-powerful United Nations, are importing Muslims at an alarming rate and …

ZOMG! Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrates Romney Campaign!

That’s the latest hysterical — not funny hysterical but batshit crazy hysterical — declaration from the completely unhinged Pam Geller and her fellow Islamophobes like Frank Gaffney and Robert Spencer. Right Wing Watch has links to all the absurd accusations:
