So, as I'm sure you're probably all aware, today is Let's Point at the Scary Muslims Day in Washington D.C. today and it's a pretty festive occasion. Pointer-in-Chief Rep. Peter King has already gone and made our only Muslim representative cry. Do you feel good about yourself, Rep. King? Did you get what you wanted?
So, how does a thing like this happen? How can a congressperson manage to hold a hearing against innocent Americans based solely upon their religion and some unsubstantiated statistics that somebody pulled out of somebody else's ass and get away with it? Where is the outrage from his constituents?
Well, King happens to be a Republican (if you can believe that), and as luck would have it, demonizing Muslims isn't looked upon all that badly in Republican circles…
According to a Gallup poll released Wednesday, 40 percent of Democrats consider the hearings appropriate compared to 69 percent of Republicans.
And 49 percent of Democrats think the hearings are inappropriate compared to 23 percent of Republicans. Gallup also found that 51 percent of Independents think the hearings are appropriate and 49 percent do not.
More than 2/3rds of Republicans are in favor of these hearings that are transparently designed to heap scorn on an American minority? I find that completely unbelievable?
What's wrong with that other almost-1/3rd? Why do they hate Lady Liberty so much?
