Why let Michele Bachmann and Louie Gohmert have all the fun? And why keep the accusations of Muslim terrorism to lowly Hillary Clinton State Department deputies, when you could set your eyes on the real prize? And that is why a Republican National Committeeman from Michigan would like you to know that Barack Hussein Obama, pretender to the presidency of the United States of America, is a Muslim terrorist also too.
Among other things, Agema once tried to cut a program that helps orphans buy clothes. He also skipped a budget vote to go snow sheep hunting in Russia. Yes, you read that correctly, he went to Russia to hunt sheep.
But Agema is mainly known for hating Muslims. He once said Dearborn is infested with terrorist “sleeper cells” and another time apparently agreed to appear at a Terry Jones rally before backing out at the last minute. Thursday, Agema took his bigotry to 11 and told the subscription-only Gongwer News Service that President Obama, like most terrorists also, is a Muslim.
Asked whether being a Muslim is a bad thing, Mr. Agema said anyone can worship any religion he or she wants, but his issue is that Mr. Obama is claiming he is both Christian and a Muslim.
“Which is it? He can’t be both,” he said. “It’s disingenuous to say one time you’re a Christian and then say another time you’re a Muslim.”
We sure wish someone else in the entire universe was aware of Obama claiming to be a Muslim! Because that sounds like “news you can use!”
Mr. Agema said his other problem is with Mr. Obama saying Islam is a religion of peace.
“Not all Muslims are terrorists, but just about every terrorist is a Muslim,” he said. “I disagree that Islam is a religion of peace.”
Wow, hey, that’s fantastic. Pay no attention to Tim McVeigh or Carlos the Jackal or the KKK. And, dear Wonketeers, these are not the words of some backbench lawmaker or fringe nutter. Michigan Republicans elected Dave Agema to represent them on the RNC. He’s GOP elite.
All these other states may think they’re the most awful in all the land, but they can cold suck it. Iowa may have its weird candidates who join pretend governments and Arizona may have pro-rape/anti-Hawaiian birth certificate county sheriffs, but that’s penny-ante. A major party leader in Michigan just called Obama a Muslim and meant every word.
