Pat Robertson (Wingnut for God), Pete Hoekstra(R-MI), Chuck 'Pulling the Plug on Grandma' Grassley (R-KS), Jon Kyl (R-AZ) and Sarah Palin (Celebrity).....all have something very much in common.
Rachel Maddow explains.....
Bashing Muslims is back in vogue.....not that it ever fell out of favor within the more imaginative far right winger groups. But I find it remarkable that 2 GOP Senators think al-Qaeda "sympathizers" now work for the U.S. Justice Department. AG Eric Holder found it remarkable too...and worthy of a guffaw.
Having already alienated women, blacks, and Hispanics...I guess the only group left for xenophobic Republicans to offend is the .6% of Americans who are Muslim.
Do we absolutely have to retrace the ugliness of the Joe McCarthy red scare days? Can't Republicans learn anything? Ever?
But if you can believe it......the new Muslim McCarthyism in the Republican Party is mild in comparison with the mighty moral warriors of the American evangelical kind.
The new "take it to Jesus" slogan for the evangelical nuts in America is Psalms 109.
Here's the new bumper sticker you can buy from zazzle.com.....
What would a person praying for President Obama on the basis of Psalms 109...be praying FOR?.....
8May his days be few;
may another take his place of leadership.
9May his children be fatherless
and his wife a widow.
10May his children be wandering beggars;
may they be drivend from their ruined homes.
Those righteous Bible believing Christians who pray FOR Obama on the basis of Psalms 109 would be praying for him to be dead and his two young girls to be homeless, wandering beggars.
These are the same folks who call the Prince of Peace and Love their Master and Saviour.
Shucks...it's all just good funnin'.....
For many, the slogan is just a humorous way express disapproval for President Obama. It's been tweeted and retweeted by Obama critics with messages like "too funny" and "an excellent prayer for America."
See? In the minds of evangelical followers of Jesus, it's just "too funny" to pray for Obama to be dead and for Obama's children to be homeless. Humorous.
But it's those American Muslims who are threatening our nation.
