A Top Conservative Think Tank Embraces Islamophobia

The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research has long had its finger on the pulse of mainstream issues that have united the GOP.

To listen to the bloviators, “religious extremist” means Muslim, and too many Americans buy in without understanding that this “God is (only) on our side” nonsense infects elements in pretty much every belief system.

Dutch MP Off the Hook in Hate Speech Case

Depending on how you see it, a Dutch court’s acquittal Thursday of controversial politician Geert Wilders is an instance of hate speech gone unpunished or, as Wilders himself put it, “a victory for freedom of expression in the Netherlands.”

NPR’s Juan Williams Sacked for Muslim Comment

Right about where NPR’s Juan Williams says, in this clip from Monday’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” that he thinks Bill O’Reilly is “right,” offering the Fox News host his support after last week’s O’Reilly kerfuffle on “The View,” things take a fateful turn for Williams’ career. Coincidence?

Newt Gingrich Is the Joe McCarthy of Muslim Bashing

Boy, one thing I really hate is when American judges try to impose harsh Islamic sharia law. You know, with all those grisly lashings, stonings and beheadings. What’s that you say? No such thing is happening, and you wonder where I got such a crazy idea? Why, Newt Gingrich told me.
