There’s a small congregation in Florida and they hate Islam.
Specifically, the Christian fundamentalist congregation believes Islam promotes violence and that Muslims want to impose sharia law in America.
The congregation is led by Terry Jones…
…and he’s fixin to call down a clusterfuck of monumental proportions when he and his minions indulge in a festival of stupid by burning the Koran on September 11.
Here are my thoughts and quizzicals…
Why the fuck is Jones getting a pass for naming September 11 Burn a Koran Day?
Where’s the angry mob sporting American flag t-shirts and shouting at the top of their lungs?
The man has taken over September 11…he’s controlled the media spin for days…all anyone can talk about is whether or not this asshole is going to burn the Koran.
How is it that the same folks who find the idea of building a Mosque blocks away from Ground Zero offensive don’t find the framing of September 11 as Burn the Koran Day offensive?
I’d like to know…seriously…because it seems to me that Terry Jones has done quite a lot to distract the masses from a true remembrance of September 11.
As I watch interview after interview one thing jumps out at me – journalists seem unwilling to question the premise of Jones’ theory.
Have we really come to this…are we really so far gone off the deep end that some Mel Gibson adoring freak can make absolute and inaccurate statements about Islam and they are allowed to linger unaddressed like a stinky fart in a humid room?
For the love of reason, would someone puh-lease challenge this ass on the foundation of his protest – because the lack of challenge is an acceptance of his flawed premise and that acceptance adds fuel to the anti-Muslim frenzy that's sweeping across America.
The fire will eventually burn out...the debris will be swept away...but the lie will cling, lingering long after the smoke clears.
