HE IS SCURRED OF MUSLIMS.
HE IS SCURRED OF MUSLIMS.

It’s a day, so Ted Cruz is being a dick. Monday morning, he told a gay man at a town hall in New York how much he loves religious liberty, and how it applies to EVERYBODY, including Christians, Jews, atheists, and even Muslims. But apparently, in Cruz’s mind, that liberty doesn’t extend to the freedom to meet with one’s senator.

What had happened was: Monday, the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) hosted a to-do in Washington called the National Muslim Advocacy Day, for the second year in a row. Just like any other lobbying day, it was a thing where Muslims go to meet with their senators and their congresscritters and speak of their concerns. Totally normal! And according to the USCMO, they met with a third of the House and half the Senate.

But definitely not Ted Cruz:

Earlier today, 14 Texas Muslim delegates to the National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill tried to meet with either Sen. Cruz or a member of his congressional staff, but were told no one would meet with them. The delegates had tried to arrange a meeting for several weeks prior to today’s event.

Rude! It’s probably because they were there to do Sharia law to everybody, right? That sure seems to be the belief of whackjob insane man Frank Gaffney, who as Right Wing Watch explains, is a “notorious anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist.” He’s also one of Teddy’s foreign policy advisers. (For more on Frank Gaffney and what A Asshole he is, read Buzzfeed’s excellent report on how Muslims used to love living in Tennessee, but now they don’t, partialily because of people like Frank Gaffney.)

Let’s read his very stupid column in The Hill about how Monday’s event was ACTUALLY Muslim Brotherhood Appreciation Day:

The USCMO is the latest in a long series of front organizations associated with, and working to advance, the agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States.

Uh oh! You see, there is a memo, written by a Muslim Brotherhood dude, and it says exactly how groups like the USCMO are going to infiltrate America and turn it into the caliphate and kill America dead. This, according to Gaffney, is their plan:

[T]he memo describes in detail the Muslim Brotherhood’s favored technique for accomplishing its stated goal of “destroying Western civilization” — at least until such time as they are strong enough to use violence decisively: “civilization jihad.” This sort of jihad involves employing stealthy, subversive means like influence operations to penetrate and subvert our government and civil society institutions.[…]

With the launch of the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations in March 2014, the Muslim Brotherhood has secured a new instrument for its subversion: a self-described U.S. “political party” meant to dominate and mobilize Muslim voters across the country and get them marching according to one plan. The object is to elicit support for the Muslim Brotherhood’s demands from candidates and to help achieve what the Islamic supremacists would regard as favorable outcomes in the 2016 elections.

TRICKY TRICKY! And for real, if you read the USCMO’s press release, you will see the thinly veiled jihad and falafel contained in their lobbying goals:

  • Support for House and Senate resolutions recognizing and condemning Islamophobia.
  • Support legislation that enables individuals to build a credit history without taking on credit debt.
  • Support legislation that promotes greater access to fresh fruit, vegetables and other healthful whole foods in impoverished areas.
  • Address American Muslim community concerns regarding the oversight, management and approach of federal Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) programs.

WHOA, DID YOU SEE IT? Wait, you didn’t?

OK so you have to get rid of Islamophobia, so the Muslim Brotherhood can do its subversive “take over America” thing. The thing about credit card debt is important because even scary Muslims listen to Suze Orman. Fruits and vegetables for poor people? PFFFFT TERROR-DOERS GOTTA EAT. And they support Countering Violent Extremism because of taqiyyah, which is the Muslim thing where they’re allowed to lie to infidels so they can jihad them! (N.B. That is what American wingnuts believe taqiyyah maeans. It is not what taqiyyah means.)

Anyway, these are Ted Cruz’s own Texan constituents who want to meet with him. You think he’d care, hahaha no you wouldn’t. He and his boy Gaffney are a-scurred of the Islamics, boy howdy! All you need to see is Cruz’s plan for patrolling Muslim neighborhoods and read all the gross things he has to say about Syrian refugee babies, to know that he is a fucking bigot who should never be president of his own punchable face, much less America.

    ‘Religious freedom’ only applies to Christians, preferably white, Protestant, and evangelical. Jews are included merely because they are apparently needed because Jesus won’t return with his Stairway to Heaven without them.

    GOP Congressman: I’ll poison myself if Cruz wins

    If Texas Sen. Ted Cruz becomes the Republican nominee, Rep. Peter King, a fellow Republican, might take the route of ancient armies when faced with defeat: poison.

    “Well, first of all, in case anybody gets confused, I’m not endorsing Ted Cruz. I hate Ted Cruz,” King said on MSNBC. And not to put too fine a point on this – King is a Republican.

    “And I think I’ll take cyanide if he got the nomination,” King finished.

    ATLANTA – Organizers had called for hundreds of people to join them, but instead only two people showed up to participate in an anti-Islam rally outside the State Capitol Monday.

    James Stachowiak, an Augusta-area podcaster, planned the event and said his main message was that the United States should stop taking in Muslim refugees and focus on better care for military veterans.

    The only other rally participant was controversial Florida pastor Terry Jones, who has drawn international criticism for burning the Koran in the past.

    I think it’s possible to both have genuine questions about USCMO, CAIR, CAGE, or any of the Muslim advocacy groups, and still give them the benefit of the doubt. Free speech and freedom of religion, goddamnit. You either believe in those things or you don’t. I do.

    They are free to support, or advocate for, pretty much whatever they want. It doesn’t make them a “front” organization. If they are not a) committing crimes, or b) funding or otherwise aiding terrorists, then they are a group just like any other. Maybe one you don’t like, but don’t imply they’re traitorous or criminal when you have no evidence.

        Sorry. Working from my phone in Houston. The Christian Brothers don’t like Trump any more than the Muslim Brotherhood. Now the Aryan Brotherhood seems to like Trump fine.

  • And as that excellent article Evan linked to hints at, the irony is that Muslims, especially Muslims in rural and small town America, would be excellent allies for most socially conservative causes (they’re both socially conservative and politically active, with probably 42 percent of American Muslims voting for Bush in 2000). But now they’ve at best scared Muslims away from supporting the GOP, and at worst pushed some Muslim groups into aligning with other, more leftist minority rights coalitions. Typical excellent long-term planning for the GOP!

    • Um, that can’t be true. We have it on very good authority that Muslims are Socialist Nazis, just like their leader, Obama.

    • “Muslims for Bush” was a thing not too long ago. Amazing how the modern GOP now makes Dubya look like a religiously-tolerant moderate.

      • Hell, by this point Trump and Cruz’s foreign policy proposals are making Bush look sane and competent.

        • You see, Dubya was/is a neo-con, not a racist nor a theocrat. He wanted the Middle East conquered for Halliburton and cronies, not for Jeebus or the White Race. So buddying up to the Saudis and to the well-off US Muslim community was a smart thing to do. But his coalition relied on rhetorically ginning up both the racists and the theocrats. And since neo-con policy proved to be a shamble, there is nothing left to stop the racists and theocrats now – except, of course, the liberals and the Left.

            Old George was a neo-con, maybe. Young George was/is a Dispensationalist, eager for the Rapture. Remember how he tried to recruit Chirac to his invasion force with rhetoric about Gog and Magog?

    • Zhu Bajie

      Years ago, I read an editorial in the Cincinnati Enquirer (a right-wing rag), in which a Prot. fundie was saying the same thing: Christian fundies and Muslim fundies wanted the same thing and ought to be allies.

      • Blank Ron

        Happily for sane people, while they want the same things they will never agree as to who’ll be in charge.

        • Zhu Bajie

          But I trust secularists and atheists no more than I do religionists. They have a dreadful record over the last couple centuries.

          • Blank Ron

            So who DO you trust?

          • Zhu Bajie

            My personal friends and my personal experiences. Certainly not people who think they are morally superior because some opinion about the Great Pumpkin or anything else.

  • Scooby

    To be fair if I had to meet with Tug Cruz I would hope he wouldn’t be in either

    • NoGoodnik

      They probably planned it that way trying to make impossible to keep or make appointments, 2:00 AM on Sunday? No? How about 5:30 AM on Tuesday? Oh, he’s already scheduled. I see.

      • Scooby

        Just show up on soup night.

        • Every night is soup night at the Cruzes. They got 500 cans!

  • NoGoodnik

    I’m beginning to wonder whether Lyin’ Ted wants to be president either. I mean with an adviser like Gaffney, the PAC attack ads practically write themselves. Between Lyin’ Ted’s anti-Muslim BS, his support of the GOLD STANDARD, hatred of the minimum wage, complete opposition to safe and legal abortion and birth control, and his general intransigence, well, there is no need to say anything other than the punch punch punchiest face in the land! He’s got the face that all the mothers love to punch!

  • tomamitai

    Too bad the Tsar’s secret police didn’t copyright The Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion, because they’d be able to sue damn near every Muslim hating website in the world for infringement. Substituting “Muslim” for “Jew” is not enough to avoid charges of plagiarism.

    • Conspiracy theory about the evil minority undermining our civilisation is pretty ancient. In Nero’s Rome, it was the Christians.

      • JustDon’tSayDittos

        Hmm…and then look what happened to Rome

        • Exactly: I should have specified that such conspiracy theory is a symptom of a social order falling to bits and looking for a scapegoat. (Edward Gibbon thought going Christian caused the death of the Western Empire, but the Eastern Empire lasted another 1000 years, so that can’t have been it.)

          • Zhu Bajie

            Gibbon’s far from the only historian of the Roman Empire.

        • Zhu Bajie

          Yes, it’s still full of Romans.

    • Zhu Bajie

      Well, much of the anti-Muslim rhetoric is anti-Jewish rhetoric with a few names changed. I’ve been waiting for someone to re-write the PEZ.

  • whitroth

    Hey, I’ve got right here a Sekret Commie-unikay, written by the Koch brothers and friends, about how they’re going to take over the US gummint, and pass Rich People’s Law, and all of us will have to tug our forelocks when they tell us to dig hole and die in it….

    Oh, right, sorry, it was just a newspaper article where they said they’re going to spend $1B on this election alone….

    Little OT, but if you guys are feeling like gluttons for punishment (or troll hunting), ThinkProgress ran an article yesterday about a Muslim college in Berkely, CA. The resultant stampede of trolls was like a tsunami of derparrhea.

    I am going to start a group called U.S. Muslim Contingent. Then watch these assholes trash the USMC before they realize it.

      Very thank you for this.

    My first thought at seeing the headline on this post was,”Gee, that’s too bad.”

    • “Hey, Ted Cruz, whaddaya say?”
      “I’m gonna ban Islam in the USA!”

      Well, I didn’t expect that.

    Why isn’t Cruz in Washington doing the job the voters in Texas elected to do?

    http://www.senate.gov/legislative/resources/pdf/2016_calendar.pdf

    “Cruz has repeatedly missed more votes than many of his Senate colleagues since launching his presidential campaign. Only Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) missed more votes in 2015.
    The first quarter of 2016, however, is the first time he has missed a larger percent of votes than Sen. John McCain…”

    • Blank Ron

      Faith, not works, remember?

  • Thank god Cruz stopped them before they got to the produce aisle. Otherwise it would be “Kale for the Caliphate”!

  • The deeper issue is that the paranoia about the Muslim Brotherhood (who are a conservative but not fanatical-terrorist outfit) is encouraged by the al-Sisi military dictatorship in Egypt. Any pro-democracy demonstrator there is busted on a trumped up charge of belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood. And of course al-Sisi, though a terrible dictator, is buddies with the US of A’s best buddies, Israel and Saudi Arabia. You see how this all fits together.

  • King of America

    I genuinely read that as Jews of Muslim Brotherhood.

    And it made as much sense.

  • Barley_Brains

    At the very least he could have talked to them about fresh fruits and vegetables. Who’s against fresh fruit and vegetables?

    • Blank Ron

      Big High-Fructose Corn Syrup, for a start.

        Yea, and their partner in malnutrition crime Big Soda. Have a Coke and a gap-filled smile!

    Let’s work something in about the “Protocols of the Elders of Medina”. Yeah, that’ll work.

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    Hey Wonkers! Read this outloud, in front of a couple of people!

    There is no god but God, and Muhammed is his messenger.

    Presto, you’re Muslims! Now tell the MB I’ve done my part.

    • Dr. Krieger IRL

      Dammit. Between you, those guys on bikes, and the “free” “counseling” sessions at the local SuperOrg, I can’t tell if I’m a skeptic, a Muslim, a Mormon, or a Scientologist anymore. What’s going on?

  • urgelt

    You can’t trust babies. I mean, it’s a grave mistake to hand them firearms, and Cruz is right, RIGHT, I say, to oppose it.

    It’s almost enough to make Republicans want to introduce legislation to constrain guns just a teensy weensy bit…

    Naaah.
