Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, rips this closet Islamophobe a new one. I especially like how he made sure to mention George Bush’s intention behind invading Iraq (the Biblical prophecy of Gag and Magog), which resulted in the death of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians. (But of course those civilians don’t count, since they are brown Moozlems.)
Cenk could have sealed that argument by mentioning the Christian version of Al-Qaeda, none other than the fundamentalist Evangelical Blackwater group, which has killed scores of civilians. And he could also have mentioned the thousands of Christians who believe in the Joel’s Army theology and the general surge of Christian fanaticism in the U.S. military.
One other point: the conservative loon mentioned the idea that 90% of mosques in America are owned and operated by Saudi Arabia. This is a blatant lie commonly peddled by Islamophobes. “But you can google it!” Believe it or not: but not everything on the interwebs is true. *gasp* In fact, the vast majority of mosques in America run on local donations.
Then in that same breath she says that they are funded by the Muslim Brotherhood, when in fact the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood runs contrary to that of the “Wahhabi” (Salafi) strain of Islam followed in Saudi Arabia.
But anyways, I must say that Cenk did a great job (and I give him a 10 out of 10). Here is the debate:
