Muslim Republican Braves Lair of Screaming Florida Teabaggers

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

But this guy holding the sign got elected to the committee, though.The cranky, fearful Republican Orcs of Broward County, Florida heard there was a MUSLIM, yes that’s a right a MUSLIM trying to join their little treehouse club of dingbats with the bizarre explanation that he, too, was a Republican. Forsooth, evil terrorist? Their childish response was to immediately change all the rules for club entry and subject the Muslim candidate for election to the party’s executive committee, Nezar Hamze, to a barrage of questions and accusations and screaming outbursts before telling him to get lost.

There is not a single part of this article that is not seething with the racist hatred and intolerance of the Florida teabagger, but perhaps here is a representative section:

Republicans, who changed their rules to publicly vet Nezar Hamze and then vote on his application by secret ballot, said they didn’t oppose him because he was a Muslim – but because he is associated with the Center for American-Islamic Relations, whose Washington-area affiliate was an unindicted co-conspirator in a federal terrorism indictment.

Hamze, CAIR’s South Florida director, said his local group had nothing to do with the suspect activities in Washington. He said CAIR advocates for civil rights for Muslims, who have been unfairly targeted ever since 9/11.

“I’m aligned with Republican values. And I want to serve the party,” Hamze said, who earlier told a reporter that any effort to block him was the result of anti-Islamic “bigotry.”

At times, when he addressed the packed room at the Sheraton Suites in Fort Lauderdale, a few members shouted out among the crowd of about 300.

“Terrorist!” said one man.

“Let him speak!” said another.

Members of Broward’s Republican Party said Hamze was making a mockery of their rules and was trying to become a member as a publicity stunt.

“I don’t have a positive impression of Mr. Hamze. I don’t think he will be an asset to our party,” said Scott Spages, who is involved in programs concerning radical Islam at his church, Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale.

And then they voted to exclude him 11-158 and America was saved from the terrible fate of diversity once more. [McClatchy]

These folks put the "duh" in Florida.

I was born in Floriduh.

(But we moved to D.C. when I was a toddler. Thank you, Flying Spaghetti Monster!)

JustPixelz September 27, 2011 at 4:35 pm

As soon as you learned to walk — to toddle — you got out. Well done!

GunToting[Redacted] September 27, 2011 at 2:20 pm

Florida, this Arizonan thanks you from the bottom of his heart.

Ayn Rand Paul Tard September 27, 2011 at 2:26 pm

You totally know Judge Joe and Jan Brewer are trying to figure out how they can top this.

Doktor Zoom September 27, 2011 at 3:08 pm

That's "Sheriff Joe", which is entirely bad enough. Arpaio would only want a judgeship if he could ignore all that "impartiality" crap and be like Judge Dredd…

Ayn Rand Paul Tard September 27, 2011 at 4:10 pm

Yes–Judge Dredd/Judge Judy/Sheriff Joe–Freudian slip (can't imagine how I could mix them up). 'Hand over your Green Card, citizen! I am the LAW!'

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Somebody's gotta make y'all's state look good, huh?

Blueb4sunrise September 27, 2011 at 3:04 pm

Tejas and Fla are totally kicking our ass.

Not_So_Much September 27, 2011 at 3:31 pm

You guys have been pretty quiet on teh stoopid for more than a week now. I'm expecting something impressively idiotic from you soon!

Tundra Grifter September 27, 2011 at 2:21 pm

A Muslin wanting to join the TeaBaggers is like a deer trying to join the NRA.

Not that the TeaBaggers are racist or bigots or anything.

PS: These right wing nutz have been listening to The Silly Savage and Off-the-Mark Levin – they both hate CAIR.

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 2:26 pm

"A Muslin wanting to join the TeaBaggers is like a deer trying to join the NRA."

It's like the dude just hasn't been paying attention. For a decade.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:01 pm

Psst! Log Cabin!

HogeyeGrex September 27, 2011 at 3:30 pm

Well, I don't suppose Mr. Hamze would find nearly the proportion of his new Republican friends to be closeted Musselmen compared to the pickings the Log Cabin folks have in various highway restrooms across the nation.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:31 pm

When you put it that way …

spinozasgod September 27, 2011 at 4:22 pm

I don't understand why conservative christians(repubs)don't see how much they have in common with conservative muslins……….

Negropolis September 28, 2011 at 12:48 am

They only hate each other because they are competition. That's it.

Tundra Grifter September 29, 2011 at 11:24 am

Remember the letter that guy in Iran wrote President Bush?
http://www.finalcall.com/artman/publish/Perspecti

You're on the money!

ChrisKingDublin September 29, 2011 at 12:40 pm

And what do you know about CAIR? I would love to hear about it. Do you follow their facebook activity? How about their Youtube videos? Or, do you ever read any of their press releases? I would bet that is a big fat NO.

I am no teabagger, but to think that there are no Muslims, Blacks, Latinos, Chinese, Japanese, ect in the organization proves you down out right ignorance.

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 2:22 pm

And this is surprising to whom?

JustPixelz September 27, 2011 at 4:36 pm

good point. it's a real GOP bites man story.

Chillwaver September 27, 2011 at 2:22 pm

Thank you for playing, Mr. Hamze. Please try again in 50 years.

Sincerely,

Florida's GOP

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:02 pm

What kind of Muslin NegahRow has a name like *HAM*ze, huh? He's a plant, a mole, a traitor weaseling his way into America's bosom.

littlebigdaddy September 27, 2011 at 2:22 pm

These were the guys booing the soldier….dog bites man.

Trannysurprise September 27, 2011 at 2:23 pm

To be fair, he isn't white.

Mumbletypeg September 27, 2011 at 2:32 pm

ummm….

Or maybe I need to finish reading the article for other indicators.. but "darkie" isn't what comes to my mind regarding this guy's complexion.

Chillwaver September 27, 2011 at 2:49 pm

He looks like a Jersey Shore cast reject.

Trannysurprise September 27, 2011 at 2:51 pm

Just as Pinky found out, you can't just look white you have to be white.

Limeylizzie September 27, 2011 at 2:53 pm

He has whiter skin than I do.

Papa_Uniform September 27, 2011 at 3:24 pm

Well Lizzie if that's the case, I hope this doesn't shatter your dreams, but I don't think you can join the Rethugs in FLA either.

Not_So_Much September 27, 2011 at 3:34 pm

You're a Brown and a Limey? Keep that on the downlow when the teatards come wheezily motoring through with HoveRound-mounted fully automatic weapons.

Limeylizzie September 27, 2011 at 3:46 pm

Not exactly a brown, I am just olive-skinned more than a really, pale, blue-ish white.

MMathS September 28, 2011 at 8:47 am

And, Jesus, neither is this Scott Spages fellow. The melanin is strong with this one.

Doktor Zoom September 27, 2011 at 2:23 pm

His very existence is an intolerable provocation. Why does he persist in doing that?

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:03 pm

These Blakz and Brownz! Don't they realize, if they'd just COOPERATE and BE WHITE, all this foofaraw could end, and we could all go back to living our peaceful lives?

Doktor Zoom September 27, 2011 at 3:37 pm

As one of our Briettard visitors reminded us a couple weeks back, if it weren't for multiculturalism, there'd be no NEED for racism.

HistoriCat September 27, 2011 at 3:42 pm

Who can argue with that?

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:49 pm

Apparently, I just did.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:48 pm

That's one of those comments that just makes my brain hurt.

I mean, where the fuck does this fuckwit get off talking about the NEED for racism?

rahelio September 27, 2011 at 3:53 pm

Obviously, black and brown people need racism or none of them would go to college or get a job. It also makes it easier to game the welfare system.

WABishop September 27, 2011 at 4:14 pm

Ever notice how "bright-tard" is an oxymoron? Or is that tallest-midget-at-the-circus bright?

slithytoves September 27, 2011 at 2:23 pm

Well, I once attended a faculty senate meeting where the faculty voted down a motion to affirm academic freedom. That had to do with religion, too. As a specialist in religion in America, all I can say is, "nothing new here folks."

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 2:25 pm

Betcha they'd have been a little more respectful if his name had been Keyser Soze.

johnnyzhivago September 27, 2011 at 2:25 pm

He's right – the guy is NOT going to be an asset to the Republican Party. His presence could well destroy their well deserved image as a gang of stupid racist morons.

spinozasgod September 27, 2011 at 4:24 pm

don't forget, this guy WANTS to be a member of a group of stupid racist morons….

philpjfry September 27, 2011 at 2:25 pm

Goddamn these ignorant assholes to hell. Reminds me of the Mark Twain quote" I have never killed a man, but I have read many an obituary with great joy."

anniegetyerfun September 27, 2011 at 2:48 pm

Oh, that's not a Twain quote, that's from the Qur'an.

ProudLibunatic September 27, 2011 at 3:23 pm

As repellent as they are, I'm so glad to see that they are showing their true colors. (We knew it all along.)
I fear for America, but I am LOVING the mean-spirited and hateful Republican circular firing squad!
Keep it up, guys!
More bake sales, debates and bigotry!!

SorosBot September 27, 2011 at 2:25 pm

“I’m aligned with Republican values."

Considering that two of the primary Republican values are hatred of all non-Christians and of all non-white people, and you are neither white nor Christian, that would be kind of impossible.

GeorgiaBurning September 27, 2011 at 2:36 pm

Unless he kills himself. That might be a campaign plus in Florida, it's hard for a dead man to get into much mischief during the campaign and even harder to prosecute him.

mumbly_joe September 27, 2011 at 3:44 pm

To be fair, there has to be some level of hatred for poors, women, gays, and non-muslim minorities that constitutes a tipping-point in Republicans' favor. At least, that's what Hamze naively believes.

comrad_darkness September 28, 2011 at 12:53 am

Maybe he meant the republican values of: poor people should starve and Jesus meant "suffer the children" as in SUFFER the children.

It's possible.

Rosie_Scenario September 27, 2011 at 2:26 pm

This is in keeping with the Florida GOP straw poll winner, Herman "I will not appoint a Muslin to my cabinet" Caine. Nothing to see here, move along.

johnnyzhivago September 27, 2011 at 2:27 pm

BTW, I see everyone in the official GOP is pleading with my Governor (the one who can EAT your governor) to enter the race. Well, I happen to like Christie for a couple of things, but especially when he was supporting a Muslim he appointed to a judgeship – soundly putting down the idiots screaming that the guy was going to enact Sharia law in New Jersey.

Can't wait to see how that episode will go over with the teabag crowd!!!
http://www.salon.com/news/politics/war_room/2011/

LesBontemps September 27, 2011 at 2:47 pm

"This sharia law business is crap, it's crazy. And I'm tired of dealing with the crazies."

And he's gonna run for the GOP nom? Hahahahahahahahahaha!

Radiotherapy® September 27, 2011 at 2:28 pm

Maybe Mr. Hamze could have brought his Koran to burn.

Buzz Feedback September 27, 2011 at 2:28 pm

Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale is hosting a "Juice 'em Up & Go" devotional on October 8th.

Oblios_Cap September 27, 2011 at 2:48 pm

God bless them there good Xtian folk.

HogeyeGrex September 27, 2011 at 3:35 pm

So they prefer the Juice to the Muslins?

BarackMyWorld September 27, 2011 at 2:28 pm

…an unindicted co-conspirator in a federal terrorism indictment…

Wait…whut???

Holy shit, wait until you see the ruckus when Barry applies….

Doktor Zoom September 27, 2011 at 2:29 pm

Prolly more related to one of the Commie Wall Street Protest threads, but what the hell. NPR's Talk of the Nation is doing a pretty substantial segment with Michael Kazin and Katrina vanden Heuvel, building on Kazin's NYT piece last weekend, Whatever Happened to the American Left?

fuflans September 27, 2011 at 2:59 pm

whatever happened to the american left?

baggers ate them.

powersuit September 27, 2011 at 3:30 pm

Well at least one of those threads has been locked down, so this is as good a place as any.

Doktor Zoom September 27, 2011 at 6:27 pm

As we all know, Wonkette doesn't allow comments.

HistoriCat September 27, 2011 at 3:49 pm

Whatever Happened to the American left

Well for one thing, every mainstream media outlet including NPR marginalized them. Maybe NPR should try looking at who they invite on to talk – it's about 5:1 right-wing vs non-right-wing. If you want to look at RW vs. LW it's more like 15:1.

powersuit September 27, 2011 at 3:58 pm

Overcompensation.

What I don't understand is, why does NPR care? Has it stopped the constant complaining from "Republicans" about the imagined liberal slant? They still do stories on gardening and indie bands, so the complaints are going to keep coming.

SorosBot September 27, 2011 at 4:12 pm

Nothing will ever stop the constant Republican complaints about the nonexistent liberal slant of NPR or any other part of the mainstream media; but none of them can to realize this, so they keep bending over backwards ever further to appease the right wing, just like the cocksuckers who invented the lie want.

Nothingisamiss September 28, 2011 at 1:38 pm

NPR = Obama?

(Sorry Bammerz)

OkieDokieDog September 27, 2011 at 2:29 pm

Them thar true 'Merican Patriots could smell a varmint in their little piece of Heaven. They knews he was a NObummer Muslin plant… trying to steal their secret Kool-Aid recipe. And probably their Granma's secret Mac N' Cheeze recipe also too.

Geesh. That guy should have known better. He will never be a white Christian so he will never be equal. Get a clue, dude.

Ayn Rand Paul Tard September 27, 2011 at 2:29 pm

No, no, they were saying 'terriers' not terrorist! Old people love those cute little dogs.

Now a rag-head, that's sumpin' else, cuz.

Slim_Pickins September 27, 2011 at 2:54 pm

Actually, he's a tourist. Something Florida needs these days.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:34 pm

Well, spray-paint me pink and call me a Cadillac, honey, but it looks like they GOP fellas done put paid to any hope of tourists coming to Floriduh after they read this article!

SorosBot September 27, 2011 at 3:01 pm

They were screaming "bring back Terriers, FX!" But wait, the only people who watched that were critics and other TV geeks; teabaggers aren't really the type…

DaRooster September 27, 2011 at 2:29 pm

“I’m aligned with Republican values. And I want to serve the party…”

HELLO!?!?

Eve8Apples September 27, 2011 at 2:47 pm

GOP response… "Fine. You wanna serve us? Get your brown ass to the kitchen and make us something to eat, you dirty moozlin terrorist."

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:05 pm

"Serve the party" — OMG! It's a recipe book!

Pragmatist2 September 27, 2011 at 2:31 pm

I want to know who the ringer was who called out "Let him speak!" They will make him turn in his three-corner hat.

weejee September 27, 2011 at 2:32 pm

OT

Great news from C"Addle. Got the results of our daughter-in-law's CT scan this morn & all the tumors are shrinking. Not yet to operable size, but her oncologist with 20+ years called it amazing. Thanks to all the Wonketteriate's support on this. HUZZAH

That is amazing and wonderful news! I'm very happy for you all.

memzilla September 27, 2011 at 2:49 pm

We are all pleased. May you all be inscribed forever in the Book of Face.

But personally, will I go to hell if I wish for certain people to have tumors which are growing?

fuflans September 27, 2011 at 2:53 pm

oh good news!

cheers!

Nice to know that she's kicking cancer's ass!
HOORAY!!!

Late to the game, weej, but I'm deeply happy to hear the news. In the long hard struggle you guys are going through, I imagine developments like these lift all your spirits. And they lift all our spirits as well. Thanks for sharing and here's a favorite from around the owl campfires:

SexySmurf September 27, 2011 at 2:33 pm

From now on, anybody wanting to join the Florida Republican Party will be required to eat a pork chop and tongue-kiss Salman Rushdie.

SorosBot September 27, 2011 at 2:47 pm

Nah, Rushdie is an atheist, who they hate as much as Muslims (and also still brown).

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:07 pm

Actually, if you've ever seen him up close and personal, he's as pink as they come. Not brown at all. I was very disappointed.

LesBontemps September 27, 2011 at 3:02 pm

eat a pork chop and tongue-kiss Salman Rushdie

In that order?

102415 September 28, 2011 at 4:54 pm

That's a hell of a lot of people to be joining the Florida Republicans. I think you better walk that one back.

ThundercatHo September 27, 2011 at 2:33 pm

What is an unindicted co-conspirator in a federal terrorism indictment? I'm no lawyer but if they weren't indicted wouldn't that make them not guilty?

SorosBot September 27, 2011 at 2:48 pm

Guilt by association.

SenileAgitation September 27, 2011 at 3:03 pm

From defintion.uslegal.com:
An unindicted co-conspirator is a person who is identified by a law enforcement officer to have engaged in a conspiracy, but who is not charged in the indictment charging that person’s fellow conspirators. Prosecutors may name persons as unindicted co-conspirators for: grants of immunity, pragmatic considerations, and evidentiary concerns. The term unindicted co-conspirator was familiarized in 1974.

Ha. Think Watergate.

not that Dewey September 28, 2011 at 1:49 am

A back-handed compliment. It's apparently the federal prosecutorial version of "not sayin', just sayin'"

OzoneTom September 27, 2011 at 2:33 pm

This is not an issue for the states. The Nat'l GOP needs to be doing this.

Blueb4sunrise September 27, 2011 at 3:01 pm

This is brilliant.

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 2:33 pm

I'm sure it would have gone a lot better for him if, in addition to being a Muslim Republican, he were also a gay soldier serving in Iraq.

LesBontemps September 27, 2011 at 3:03 pm

And on death row!

Chichikovovich September 27, 2011 at 3:33 pm

And dying without health insurance.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:08 pm

I'm sure. If there's one thing Republicans love more than Teh Culludz, it's Teh Ghey.

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 27, 2011 at 2:34 pm

If only he had accepted Jesus Christ as his savior and spat on some poor people, this would not have been a problem.

Oblios_Cap September 27, 2011 at 2:50 pm

That, and prayed loudly and often in public. And mayhaps be unabashedly judgmental of all whom he meets.

Dr_Zoidberg September 27, 2011 at 2:37 pm

Sometimes, snark fails me and I can only shake my head in disbelief at the hatred shown by these people.

Barrelhse September 27, 2011 at 4:28 pm

It does showcase their stupidity.

ManchuCandidate September 27, 2011 at 2:38 pm

Why don't they just rename themselves "The Stupid He Man Rascal Rider Muslin Haters Club"

freakishlywrong September 27, 2011 at 2:38 pm

Too bad he wasn't a sleeper cell….

anniegetyerfun September 27, 2011 at 2:40 pm

Yes, Muslims. Because of your anti-abortion stance, you should align yourself with the people who hate you. Like those fucking Hilary supporters who wanted to vote for McCain when Obama won the Dem ticket.

PUMAS!

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:10 pm

Muslims are anti-abortion? I've never heard that before. In fact, most of the Muslims I grew up with had a sort of "meh" attitude towards abortion: it was never a big deal and WAY preferable to being pregnant without the benefits of marriage.

anniegetyerfun September 27, 2011 at 3:13 pm

I'm sure that there are many secular Muslims who don't give a shit. These usually aren't the people who work for CAIR (as I learned while working for CAIR). But religious Muslims are strictly against abortion, just like our Teatards.

In fact, conservative values DO line up completely in both religions – subjugate women, keep the man in charge of everything, have as many kids as your wife's poor uterus can handle, etc.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:40 pm

How interesting.

On the topic of conservative values in religions, I believe conservatives tend to bend any religion they profess to reflect *conservative* values. Conservative Buddhists in Thailand, for example, are the main reason abortion on demand is not enshrined in public health regulation. Since prostitution is a big income source in Thailand, this means that women plying that trade have illegal abortions, as the recent discovery of hundreds of fetal skeletons has shown.

SorosBot September 27, 2011 at 3:14 pm

It's probably more the anti-gay stance; although, like with Christians, it's the fundamentalist Muslims who are into gay-hating and unlike the Republicans we should recognize that different Muslims believe different things.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:55 pm

Most of the Muslims I know (and they're from South and Southeast Asia) have a similar stance on abortion as Jews. It's really not a big deal in the first trimester, and in later trimesters, if medically necessary, then it's carried out. However, I understand that fundamentalist Muslims are against abortion except when medically necessary. This is different from fundamentalist Christians, who don't believe in medical necessity and want NO abortions EVER.

This is like Nancy Grace's nipple. Something you just don't want to see.

Eve8Apples September 27, 2011 at 2:44 pm

While in Disney World Florida, sing "It's a Small World Afterall."

While in Broward County, Florida, sing "It's a WASP World Afterall."

Chichikovovich September 27, 2011 at 3:07 pm

"It's a WASP World After All"

Not entirely. Don't forget Joe Kaufman, vice-chairman of the Republican Jewish Coalition of South Florida and chairman of Citizens Against Hate .

HempDogbane September 27, 2011 at 2:45 pm

He's just trying to make them look bad.

Chichikovovich September 27, 2011 at 3:04 pm

Well, he certainly knocked the ball out of the park if that is what he was swinging at.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 3:11 pm

And they're just trying to help him in his effort.

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 3:14 pm

Liberal plants are everywhere!!

emmelemm September 27, 2011 at 3:18 pm

Is that that creeping Sharia I keep hearing about?

comrad_darkness September 28, 2011 at 12:48 am

Like they needed any help with that.

SayItWithWookies September 27, 2011 at 2:45 pm

After the vote to deny membership, Broward Executive Committee Chairman Richard DeNapolis said simply: "Mr. Hamze, your membership has been denied."

The crowd cheered loudly.

That's the GOP for you — always upholding American values, unless given a chance to judge people on their name or religion first.

ProudLibunatic September 27, 2011 at 3:34 pm

I'm growing rather fond of the idiot Repub crowd that cheers for stupid shit.

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 3:36 pm

Kind of a Greek chorus, but with idiots.

Oblios_Cap September 27, 2011 at 2:47 pm

I thought terrorists wore suicide vests. Too bad he really wasn't one in that room full of idiotic republicans.

There can only be one Muslin Reagan Jr.

Ronald Reagan's "big tent" is now a tiny umbrella with a "whites only" sign.

Ummmm… yeah… now…

Previously that was understood by unspoken gentleman's agreement.

..and then they donned their sheets and pointy hats, and got back to the real business of the party of Lincoln.

Slim_Pickins September 27, 2011 at 2:56 pm

This is further evidence that the American education system failed long ago.

fuflans September 27, 2011 at 2:57 pm

the republican party: the tiny tiny white tent.

genxr September 27, 2011 at 3:26 pm

The tiny white tent that fits over your head, and a matching sheet.

/fixed

prommie September 27, 2011 at 3:33 pm

No way Chris Christie is gonna fit in that tent.

Blueb4sunrise September 27, 2011 at 3:00 pm

"….CAIR advocates for civil rights for Muslims…"

I think I see the problem.

iburl September 27, 2011 at 3:00 pm

“I’m aligned with Republican values. And I want to serve the party,”

Wow, you want to torture and kill all muslims? It's your funeral *shrugs*.

And for an encore, gay soldiers booed themselves.

kissawookiee September 27, 2011 at 3:01 pm

Republicans, who changed their rules to publicly vet Nezar Hamze… Members of Broward's Republican Party said Hamze was making a mockery of their rules

You're making a mockery of the rules we just made a mockery of by changing them specifically to mock your Muslin existence! Never Forget!

Allmighty_Manos September 27, 2011 at 3:03 pm

Dude you can be a corporate hack and still join the Democrats w/o dealing with screeching, drooling mobs of Broward County's finest.

Chichikovovich September 27, 2011 at 3:03 pm

"The tea party Republican has repeatedly denounced Islam,…. So has Joe Kaufman, chairman of the group Citizens Against Hate"

Mr. Kaufman is also the chairman of Citizens for Peace, which promotes war, Citizens for Strength, which promotes ignorance, and Citizens for Freedom, which promotes slavery.

Negropolis September 28, 2011 at 1:06 am

I bet the fucker is part of the Anti-Defamation League, too.

He's also a volunteer fireman at the local library.

Mumbletypeg September 27, 2011 at 3:03 pm

Why I'm proud of these 'tardlicans standing on their Old Testament feet of clay. They're giving this guy's evil namesake Nebuchad'Nezzar a whole new lease on ignominous reaping of venomous blowback for his ancient persecution o' them promised-peoples. And why should Jezebel hog all that fun, plus a name full of Scrabble® points-appeal?

gurukalehuru September 27, 2011 at 3:04 pm

Nezar Hamze is to Muslims what Fred Karger is to gay people or Herman Cain and Michael Steele are to black people.

BTWBFDIMHO September 27, 2011 at 3:06 pm

I thought the GOP was open to all forms of stupidity. Oh well.

Lucidamente1 September 27, 2011 at 3:07 pm

What happened to the commenting at http://wonkette.com/453806/liberal-npr-wont-cover…?

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 3:13 pm

My guess is that things got a little hairy and over the top. Which is really hard to imagine on this site.

Lucidamente1 September 27, 2011 at 3:14 pm

Seriously–what is it about NPR that sets people off?

Sharkey September 27, 2011 at 3:38 pm

Diane Rehm = world class cunt.

Anyways, I look forward to hearing the audio from this Broward’s Republican Party party on NPR.

BarackMyWorld September 27, 2011 at 3:39 pm

I'm guessing the offending comments got deleted then? I didn't see anything too crazy.

SorosBot September 27, 2011 at 3:59 pm

I don't think there was anything; it was probably just an administrative screw-up. Accidentally disabling comments was common after the transition to IntenseDebate, and again when Wonkette Jr. started posting; it must be an easy mistake to make.

lulzmonger September 28, 2011 at 7:31 am

I kept trying to post on a specific thread some weeks back (so it must've been REALLY FUNNY SHIT) & kept getting "This post has been deleted by the blog administrator." At first I was wondering if I'd been banned.

Commenting warez = suckers of dead donkey dicks.

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 4:01 pm

Well, if the whole post had disappeared, I might put forth the conspiracy theory that Ken was in line for a job at NPR and realized belatedly that such a post might be peeing in the spring. But it's still there, so…

Naked_Bunny September 27, 2011 at 4:06 pm

It's gone from the front page, though. Weird.

Nostrildamus September 27, 2011 at 5:38 pm

Never doubt the power of Peter Sagal.

CapnFatback September 27, 2011 at 3:10 pm

At times, when he addressed the packed room at the Sheraton Suites in Fort Lauderdale, a few members shouted out among the crowd of about 300.

“Terrorist!” said one man.

“Let him speak!” said another.

Members of Broward’s Republican Party said Hamze was making a mockery of their rules and was trying to become a member as a publicity stunt.

WHEW! Glad They prevented THAT from happening.

CapnFatback September 27, 2011 at 3:13 pm

And another thing: How does one make a mockery of a mockery?

bagofmice September 27, 2011 at 3:20 pm

Two words. Meta mockery.

ProudLibunatic September 27, 2011 at 3:38 pm

I hope it was a publicity stunt.
If so, mission accomplished!

jus_wonderin September 27, 2011 at 3:13 pm

Really, what the fuck is wrong with people??

Fawkdifiknow September 27, 2011 at 3:19 pm

Florida has been trying to get back in the news in the same way they made themselves a laughing stock – like you do when you piss all over yourself – over the Elian Gonzalez deal and the Terry Shiavo trajedy. A real class state.

genxr September 27, 2011 at 3:20 pm

I'm trying to wrap my head around this:

He said CAIR advocates for civil rights for Muslims, who have been unfairly targeted ever since 9/11.

with the very next sentence:

“I’m aligned with Republican values. And I want to serve the party,”

He was for unfairly targeting muslims before he was against it?

Wonderthing September 27, 2011 at 3:21 pm

Whew, that was close. For a moment I thought we were going to be the land of the free again. That shit ain't right.

MiniMencken September 27, 2011 at 3:22 pm

OT: So, why is the comment section disabled on the NPR/Wall Street protests item?

jus_wonderin September 27, 2011 at 3:28 pm

I wondered the same thing.

Sharkey September 27, 2011 at 3:40 pm

It's censorship! What has happened to good ole reliable Wonkette?

Naked_Bunny September 27, 2011 at 4:11 pm

It all went to hell when AOL connected….oops, I mean, when people didn't have to audition anymore.

genxr September 27, 2011 at 3:23 pm

They wouldn't treat the King of Saudi Arabia this way.

They really wouldn't.

owhatever September 27, 2011 at 3:29 pm

No Muslins in our sunny little tree house! And yet the members of the GOP wonder why they are being perceived as mean, stupid and racist.

mumbly_joe September 27, 2011 at 3:31 pm

"We don't hate you for being a Muslim, we just hate you for being a member of a group that wants to protect the civil rights of Muslims."

Yeah, good point.

Fox n Fiends September 27, 2011 at 3:31 pm

Where is the outrage, Mr. Breitbart?

Is this where we're supposed to go now to comment on the Wall St. demonstrations? O.K., so, hey Steve Inskeep! Go fuck yourself. Do it today!

Naked_Bunny September 27, 2011 at 4:13 pm

Yeah, but this is a thread about Florida Republicans and Muslims, so you should take your pants off and masturbate over pictures from Gitmo while commenting to better fit the topic at hand.

alzronnie September 27, 2011 at 3:47 pm

Membership requirements for that Muslim should be the same as it is for a black man: allow GOP leaders to shove a straw into your eardrum, suck out half of your brains, then take out a rusty knife and cut off your nuts.

Actually, that is the standard procedure for all republicans.

teebob2000 September 27, 2011 at 3:48 pm

Fuck you, all you fucking Florida turd fucks.

I find this inspiring, the long and arduous struggle of a muslim in his quest to become a Republican. Don't give up!

Someday Nezar Hamze will be mentioned in the same breath as Rosa Parks.

… where "Rosa Parks" = "Benedict Arnold."

Barrelhse September 27, 2011 at 4:36 pm

Sometimes I almost wish there was a Jesus. He would come down here and tell these idiots that they're going to spend eternity in Hell, then tell them why. Hopefully they would then have a long life here on earth, to be known as the only people that Jesus ever hated.

genxr September 28, 2011 at 10:30 am

If Jesus came back and did all that, some young Republican would be dressing up like a pimp and getting out his hidden camera by now.

DanCMH September 27, 2011 at 4:37 pm

…because it worked so well for the GOProud crowd….

spinozasgod September 27, 2011 at 4:44 pm

I am going to guess that eventually conservative muslims will be embraced by the right just like conservative catholics and conservative jews, after all they really do share very authoratarian views on social issues. Of course as soon as they have implemented their social "values" on the rest of us they will turn on each other for the ultimate "my god is the ONLY god" fight to the death.

Guppy06 September 27, 2011 at 7:02 pm

You would think Teabaggers and Muslims could at least find common ground in hating on the gays…

dsgruntled September 27, 2011 at 7:56 pm

2000 years ago these would be the same people calling for Barabbas before they would let that liberal Jesus join thier little play group!

Warpde September 27, 2011 at 8:28 pm

Hamze,
You can aligned with Republican values. And serve the party till the cows come home.
Ohhh! Stinky….but……and this is a BIG BUTT….. go away Marcass….this is not about or for you.
Let me break it to you gently.
Huntsman and Mittens are religiously born in the USA Mormons and they have no hope in hell of getting past the" Good old R/TP Christian value vetting for the top spot."

Can't say I feel sorry for Mr. Hamze. It'd be like me walking into a Klan rally hoping to be elected Grand Wizard or some shit.

All that I can picture is Eddie Murphy in an airport yelling " My brother Hamze!" in a fake African accent.

I may have gone to school in Texas, but I don't think its possible to spell "cracker" without the letters G-O-P.
