Under a 1982 ordinance, every household in Kennesaw, Georgia, is required to own a gun and ammunition, "in order to provide for and protect" the city's safety. It should probably be no surprise that the city's council recently voted—also in the name of some backwards idea of safety?— to ban a mosque from opening.
Last Friday, an assistant manager at a Hamburg, New York Wal-Mart posted the above image to Facebook: a photo of two Muslim women customers shopping in his upstate store, along with the caption, “Halloween came early this year ... do they really have to fuckin dress like that ... your in my country ... get that fuckin shit off!!!!!.”
This is pretty amazing. Fox News's Lauren Green just can't believe that Reza Aslan, a MUSLIM, would dare write a book about the history of Jesus of Nazareth, a Jew who lived more than 2,000 years ago.
Walking through a Chicago store, a Muslim activist spotted the perfect birthday card for the Fox News-hounds in our lives, featuring an adorable hijab-wearing doll with an explosive secret. Why is a tasteless greeting card newsworthy? Well, it turns out there's a little more going on behind the veil here.
The Third Jihad is a "documentary" purporting to show that U.S. Muslims are here to "infiltrate and dominate" America, funded by a mysterious right-wing pressure group. So it was a natural fit for the NYPD, which has launched an unprecedented and illegal campaign of surveillance against Muslim New Yorkers. According to the New York Times, the NYPD screened The Third Jihad on a "continuous loop" for its trainees, and more than 1,500 officers have seen it.
By pulling its ads from TLC's All-American Muslim—a reality show in which Michigan-based Muslims ("terrorists") hug, roller-blade, dance in their middle-class driveways, and engage in other banal activities ("fight the holy war")—Lowe's Home Improvement pleased and appeased America's Islamophobic community. But now it's apologizing for having offended everyone else.
American Muslim, a TLC reality show that depicts the lives of Muslims in dangerous anti-American professions like "police officer" and "high school football coach," is obviously the most egregious example yet of creeping Sharia. So thank (the Christian) God that all-American retailer Lowe's has decided to pull advertising from the show!
With only a few scant weeks left in 2011, Tennessee State Representative Rick Womick has made a late break in the running for "Absolute Dumbest Thing a Republican Has Said About Islam This Year." Let's check in, shall we?
