Right-wingers hate Muslim extremists for the same reason that Mussolini hated the Mafia and vice versa; they’re too much alike. However, conservative hate isn’t just restrained towards a small segment of the population of Muslims who commit crimes; no, they’re willing to toss all common sense to the wind and throw stones in glass houses by attacking the entire religion.
Any conservative Facebook post is going to draw the religious right, but it takes a special kinda of meme to draw the knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing pro-Genocide crowd. And this particular post made on a conservative page, certainly brought them out. Accompanied by the text “Visit Dom the Conservative to learn the ugly truth about Islam,” this parody of a Jack Chick cartoon managed to sucker all of the hateful little people out of hiding.
That sounds an awful lot like what Christians are doing here in this country. After all, “Religious Freedom” is this era’s “Separate but Equal.”
I’m not even sure why they used a fantasy sword for the picture; the script on the blade looks more a teenager’s understanding of Katakana or the bastard child of Akkadian cuneiform and Klingon than it does Arabic. Being really generous, that might be Bengali or Tibetan; my eyes aren’t great. If that’s a real script, I’ll be surprised.
Of course, this is just a peak into the looking glass; the perverse rejection of reality accompanied by copious amounts of clueless projection goes all the way down the rabbit hole. There are plenty more where these came from; I just hit what I felt were the highlights. First up, the pro-Crusaders:
I wonder if they’ll eat dog meat and commit cannibalism, just like the Crusaders did at Ma’arat al-Numen.
Actually, that’s not what taqiyya is. Taqiyya basically says that it’s okay to lie about your faith in order to save your life. Seriously, Wikipedia exists. And you know who else lied about their faith when they were persecuted?
If you answered Christians, you’re right!
Look who else showed up. The Talmud is one of the Jewish holy books, and it’s a central book to Rabbinic Judaism. Basically, he’s accusing Jewish people of following the same “deciet” [sic] as Muslims, which is rather disturbing in the context of this post (i before e except after c).
Because the IRA never existed in his world. Neither did the Army of God, the Ku Klux Klan, or The Covenant, the Sword, and the Arm of the Lord. Or the rest of this page and this page, apparently. And that’s before we get into conservative favorites like the Weather Underground.
I don’t understand the joke. The set up is horrible. “Where do you stand on Muslim Terrorists?” Muslim terrorists are now an issue one takes a stand on? Muslim terrorism, perhaps. But terrorists?
Mississippi isn’t looking for a good fight; they’re looking to get back the dignity they lost after getting their asses handed to them by the Union when they betrayed the Constitution and the United States of America.
The whole page is full of stupid comments like this; there are some people there defending basic humanity, but you won’t find many. After all, the extreme right-wing abandoned that to fear a long time ago.
