Wingnuts Outraged: Obama Won’t Spy On Muslims Like The Founders Wanted

Well, thank goodness the wingnutosphere has finally found an angle on this NSA story that makes them feel all special and put-upon! In a story that has absolutely nothing to do with the recent flap over PRISM, BLARNEY, and SMERSH, here is the headline — from nominal business site and wingnut clearinghouse “Investor’s Business Daily” — that is finally giving islamophobes a chance to complain that we don’t have ENOUGH domestic spying going on: Obama’s Snooping Excludes Mosques, Missed Boston Bombers. Of course, it’s a complete bait and switch — despite its breathless claim that “the government’s sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized,” the story is not about the NSA’s collection of phone and internet metadata. Rather, the editorial is upset that the FBI isn’t randomly infiltrating places of worship: Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. No more surveillance or undercover string operations without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee. Shocking! When did Our America start granting special rights like “due process” and “free exercise of religion” to Muslims? Read more on Wingnuts Outraged: Obama Won’t Spy On Muslims Like The Founders Wanted…

English Defence League Knows What Will Stop Terrorism: Burn Down Anything That Looks Muslimy

You probably heard that terrorists murdered a British soldier in London Wednesday, and of course it goes without saying that attacking people with machetes and meat cleavers to make a political statement is pretty much the definition of Very Wrong. Unless of course you’re the English Defence League, the gang of super-literate racist goons who responded to the murder by going out and trying to burn down some mosques, throwing bottles at police, and posting the image above on Facebook, saying that it was outrageous that such a monstrosity could be allowed to pollute English soil: Idiot 1: Would look lovely in Saudi… Idiot 2: Where is this to? [sic] Idiot 1: This is one of the main roads down to the front in Brighton Idiot 2: So that mosque is in Britain jesus christ the size on it! Idiot 1: And that’s not even half of it In a tweet, Conservative Party blogger Mark Wallace, calls the conversation “A quick reminder of the #EDL’s appreciation of our national heritage: they thought Brighton Pavilion was a mosque” The Royal Pavillion in Brighton was completed in 1811 as a seaside vacation home for notorious radical Muslim mullah King George IV.

Mosques Are Not Like Churches and Should Maybe Be Banned, Says Colorado Lawmaker

Do you have faith in your fellow (hu)man today?  If so, do you want it shattered real fast, somewhere within the next 250 words? AWESOME because Wonkette is here to help! Turns out that there was some sort of Conservative confab in Colorado a few days ago called the Western Conservative Summit, wherein conservative lawmakers from all over the state took time off from dealing with the most destructive wildfire in the Colorado’s history to meet with other conservatives and discuss important ideas that are key in helping us meet the challenges of the coming decades. KIDDING! They talked about Islam and how it will destroy everything we hold dear, probably even capitalism and DEFINITELY freedom , and one particularly sharp state senator realized that mosques are not like churches and therefore should maybe be banned: Read more on Mosques Are Not Like Churches and Should Maybe Be Banned, Says Colorado Lawmaker…

Tennessee Muslims Can Keep Practicing Religion, For Now

“We’ll stop you next time, Muslim Americans!” is what wingnuts in Tennessee are saying right now, because in a brave act of reason, a Rutherford County judge decided that despite the constant nagging of crazy people with an interesting perspective on America’s freedoms, he would like to continue to provide Muslims with religious freedom.

Pro-America Front Yard Sign Next To Mosque: ‘Bomb Making Next Driveway’

Muslim leaders are upset that a homeowner who lives next door to a newly opened mosque has posted a sign on his front lawn that reads “Bomb Making Next Driveway.” Are they upset that the front yard didn’t specify what kind of bombs they’re making? Stop being so vain, Muslims! Your Sharia bombs will kill us all, no matter what the exact schematics are. This patriot front yard was merely letting people know what all one billion Muslims do in their spare time. [AP] Read more on Pro-America Front Yard Sign Next To Mosque: ‘Bomb Making Next Driveway’…

Activist Judge Rules Against Freedom To Stop Muslims From Worship

A new mosque is going to be built in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, despite the lawsuits of some angry Tennesseans, because a judge overruled this Christian nation’s age-old and CONSTITUTIONAL freedom to stop Muslims from being Muslim. That’s right, some people in Tennessee who are NOT white Christians are going to be allowed to worship non-Christian entities in a building they’re going to put on some land they purchased. Obviously, because the plaintiffs were lawyers, they understood that Sharia is a scary ghost going around the state and their very offices eating law books as ghost food, but this stupid judge didn’t even care. And yes, if you were wondering, these lawyer guys do have terrific quotes! Read more on Activist Judge Rules Against Freedom To Stop Muslims From Worship…

Maryland Muslim Politician Worships a Rat!

Did you know that this is the summer of the mosque? So says important daily journalism product The Washington Post, because of a zoning debate in a city several hundred miles away from where the Post’s subscriber base is centered. Naturally, the best way for them to exploit this summer theme for massive readership was to find a local mosque, or, failing that, a local Muslim. Oooh, how about one who’s running for state office in the Maryland suburbs of D.C.? Exciting! Is it controversial? Is he feeling the hate, because of the mosque? Does he worship a rat? Quick answers: no, no, yes. Read more on Maryland Muslim Politician Worships a Rat!…

You may have heard there is a random pastor guy in Florida who decided he’s gonna burn hisself a whol’ bunch ‘er K-rans on 9/11! Wow! Big news! Random American hicks hate things that are not like them! But our media saw this and decided everyone looooooved that mosque story so much that this man should be an international celebrity.

And now your president has had to do this very thing, and this is huge international news, because it makes America look great.

Poor Obama Has Nowhere To Celebrate 9/11 This Year :(

We all know that 9/11 is the best holiday ever. It’s like Christmas and the Fourth of July and Halloween combined! Dick Cheney is alive right now just because he willed himself to see another 9/11. But according to Politico, who have labeled the situation “awkward,” like a 19-year-old coed, Barack Obama has nowhere to go this year. The site in Pennsylvania where that one plane ran into the ground? Michelle and Laura Bush are going to be there, so that 9/11 place is for girls. Eww! 9/11 cooties! Obama can’t go to the Pentagon, because he went there last year, and everyone knows that that one isn’t important enough to visit twice. As for the World Trade Center site, well, umm, there will be anti-mosk protesters there. Read more on Poor Obama Has Nowhere To Celebrate 9/11 This Year :(…

Sure, Orrin Hatch Will Support That Mosque Thing

We all know that Orrin Hatch loves Judaism and singing about his favorite holiday, Hanukkah. But apparently he loves all other religions too. And thus he supports the rights of Muslims to build a community center in Manhattan, if they want to, he said in an interview with a Utah Fox affiliate. No biggie. “And there’s a huge, I think, lack of support throughout the country for Islam to build that mosque there, but that should not make a difference if they decide to do it. I’d be the first to stand up for their rights,” he said, Muslinly. Read more on Sure, Orrin Hatch Will Support That Mosque Thing…

RedState Says Bigotry Is an American Tradition, But Muslims Aren’t Allowed To Call This Mosque Stuff Bigotry

“A Free Society And The Muslim Conundrum: accept us or we will kill you”: Hmm, that sounds like the title of a detached, logic-based RedState post about the reality of all this mosque stuff that finally, hopefully seems to be ending. And look, it is! It manages to justify hatred of Muslims with other things, such as the fact that some of them go to good universities that treat them with respect, or that Muslims are “complaining” despite the fact that many religious groups have faced bigotry in American history. But don’t worry, mostly Muslims still just want to kill us Christian white people.

Rep. John Fleming Says November a Choice Between Atheist Or Christian Nations, Forgets To Say ‘Muslim’

How embarrassing! Rep. John Fleming of Louisiana was having his diaper changed by David Vitter in front of the “Republican Women of Bossier” when he implied that Democrats are all atheists and thus it is impossible to have bipartisanship. “We have two competing world views here and there is no way that we can reach across the aisle — one is going to have to win,” he said. Oh boy, somebody forgot the talking point about how the GZ MOSQUE is literally a knife (thanks Sarah Palin!) that Muslins are stabbing into white people’s necks. Democrats are not atheists, they’re Muslins, ya doofus! Read more on Rep. John Fleming Says November a Choice Between Atheist Or Christian Nations, Forgets To Say ‘Muslim’…

Roy Blunt Uses Smoldering 9/11 Ruins In Mosque Ad, Which Is a Gaffe Apparently

Missouri Republican Senate candidate Roy Blunt put up this Web ad yesterday, featuring audio from his opponent, Robin Carnahan, and a single Ken Burns-effected photo of the smoldering ruins of the World Trade Center. Wow, this is such a cute ad! How did he accomplish this cuteness without the use of kittens? So this is a gaffe, apparently, and it was taken down. But the Blunt campaign has since put out the exact same ad with a different image, that of Obama and Carnahan. Our head of state, you see, is a Muslim who wants to take over America with his terrorism, and that, that is not a gaffe in today’s America, but rather good politics.

Pat Buchanan Grumbles Out Some Truth About Fellow ’90s Has-Been Newt Gingrich

Here’s Pat Buchanan talking about former House Speaker “Nude” Gingrich on this never-ending mosque bullshit non-issue. And he’s actually very right! Wow, there you go. A nice summary of the breadth of contemporary Republican political tactics. Looks like some pundits are more capable than a grilled cheese sandwich, even when they’re just residue somebody scraped from the crusty old remains of yesteryear. This man is like a grilled cheese sandwich WITH TOMATO! Read more on Pat Buchanan Grumbles Out Some Truth About Fellow ’90s Has-Been Newt Gingrich…

Sarah Palin Continues To Hate America

Sarah Palin continues to be a major critic of President Barack Obama. Why are people giving her a platform? Why would anyone think she has any particular insight into national issues and how our federal government should operate? Wouldn’t it be cheaper just to mic up a grilled cheese sandwich and ask it questions? But at least she adds to the diversity of the medium, because unlike most people on our teevee boxes, she hates the United States of America. Read more on Sarah Palin Continues To Hate America…

Whoops, 2012 GOP Convention Logo Is Pretty Mosquey

The 2012 Republican National Convention is going to be held in Tampa Bay! That must be the first nominating convention to ever be held underwater. Will Trig be attacked by sharks? Probably. But more importantly, the logo of the host committee for the event features a minaret, the Muslin version of a Twin Tower. Minarets are part of Tampa’s architecture, you see, because the Old Tampa Bay Hotel, a notable part of the skyline, was built in the “Moorish Revival” style. In other words, the Muslins have built a GIANT MOSQUE to ruin our most patriotic of events, the Republican convention. Save us, Newt! Read more on Whoops, 2012 GOP Convention Logo Is Pretty Mosquey…
