Tea Party Bigots, Fearful Of Sharia Law, Preparing To ‘Start Killing The Hell Out Of Muslims’

Emboldened by the election of Donald Trump and fearful that Sharia law will soon be imposed in their community, a group of Tea Party conservatives gathered at a seafood restaurant in Kernersville, North Carolina, last week and said they are preparing to counteract what they call a Muslim plot to conquer the United States.

Most of those who showed up admitted that they belong to militia groups, and presenter Tom Jones laid out an elaborate conspiracy theory he said was being planned by the “progressive left,” and the Muslim Brotherhood:

“The Muslim Brotherhood is behind all that terrorism and violent acts, but they’re also here operating in America in a very stealthy mode. They’ve infiltrated the judiciary. They have judges that are elected to the bench. These judges are expected to make rulings from the bench here in America according to Sharia law even though it’s not a Sharia court. If you’ve got a Muslim judge he’s required to try you under Sharia law. These people are in high positions of influence often behind the scenes in government, academia, medicine, the media.”

Frank del Valle, who was also present for the meeting, then asked Jones:

“Do you have any recommendations as to how we could stop this? Because my only recommendation is to start killing the hell out them.”

Yet another participant, Robert Watkins, who is also a former field director for the Koch-backed Americans For Prosperity and an activist with the Faith and Freedom Coalition, claimed that one of the Women’s March organizers, Linda Sarsour, wanted to impose Islam on the entire United States:

“All those women who showed up in D.C. who appear to be mainstream and supported her, raved about how she’s so great don’t realize that she’s the same one who agrees with Sharia law and will be person who stands beside them and also the same person who slices their neck.”

Later in the program, Jones told the two dozen attendees:

“I don’t know how you say ‘deep doo-doo’ in Arabic, but we’re in it. We’re in deep doo-doo, ya’ll. This is serious stuff. This is not games. These people do not play. If I put a gun to your head and ask you what you believe, you may not be able to tell, but I guarantee you these people can tell you what they believe.”

That prompted Del Valle to proudly announce:

“I’ll shoot them before they can ask me.”

It would be reassuring to think that the FBI and Justice Department will be keeping a close eye on these moronic hatemongers, but does anyone really believe a racist Islamophobe like Attorney General Jeff Sessions will do so? It’s a lot more likely Sessions would show up at one of their meetings to offer moral support.

Moronic Trump Acolyte: 1.8 Million Voters Committing ‘Some Sort Of Fraud’ (VIDEO)

As part of his campaign speech in recent weeks, GOP nominee Donald Trump has repeatedly insisted that the election is “rigged” and that Democrats will attempt to steal if from Republicans. He offers no proof, of course. Instead, he just throws the line out and his supporters lap it up like manna from heaven.

And now we have the perpetually clueless Trump shill and Tea Party favorite Scottie Nell Hughes saying on CNN this morning that nearly 2 million voters are engaged in “some sort of fraud” when they cast their ballots. Hughes went on to add:

“Pew research in 2012 came back and said one in eight voter registrations are inaccurate. There is significantly [sic] that they’re no longer valuable. That’s 146 million voters in the United States today, 1.8 million has some sort of fraud or has something wrong with their voter registration.”

Hughes said the GOP has a solution to the problem:

“The solution? Voter ID laws! That’s why the Republicans are pushing so hard for it.”

While the brainless Trump acolyte is correct that Pew published a study in 2012 on the American voter registration, her interpretation of that data is incorrect. Pew reported that 24 million registrations were “significantly inaccurate,” and that 1.8 million deceased voters were still listed on the rolls. Pew did not, however, did not conclude that incorrect registration information amounted to “voter fraud.”

Hughes also attempted that assert that Trump’s constant talk of a “rigged” election “was all about who’s going to turn their people out to the polls.” And she also stated:

“The Clinton camp has one way of doing it, on strategy. The Trump camp is saying, you have to turn out, there’s no way you can just stay home this year if you want to see a Republican take over the White House.”

Then why not just say it’s important for Trump voters to show up instead of always saying the election is gonna be stolen, Scottie? Why? Because your candidate loves to traffic in conspiracy theories and lies. He wants to incite violence and unrest. He calls himself the “law and order” candidate, but he would be delighted to see rioting in the streets when he loses. Anarchy is the best friend of tyrants. It allows them to grab power and never relent.

Also, here’s the facts on voter fraud: In 2014, Loyola Law School professor Justin Levitt  looked at voting data and found just 31 legitimate cases of fraud in over 1 billion votes cast. Talk about miniscule!

Crime GOP Whining WTF?!

Moronic Tea Party Lawyer Files Suit Against Obama For Dallas ‘Hate Crime Against White Cops’

The horrific shootings in Dallas which left five police officers dead last week were the work of sick, angry man who felt he had to exact revenge for the tragic deaths of two black men at the hands of police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota. But to hear Larry Klayman, a fanatical Tea Party member who also happens to be an attorney, they were actually the fault of President Obama and the Nation of Islam.

Klayman has now filed suit against the President and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, claiming Obama is:

“Endangering not just [his] life, as a white law enforcement person of Jewish origin, but also for all Americans, white, black, yellow or brown, no matter what their race or religion.”

The lawsuit, filed yesterday in Dallas, also accuses the President of being “soul brothers” with both Farrakhan and MSNBC host Al Sharpton.

Klayman also asserts in his preposterous lawsuit that:

“When the leader of the United States and supposedly the Western world, who was born to a Muslim father, schooled in Muslim schools, and has close ties to black-Muslim leaders like Farrakhan seeks to incite violence by virtue of his running interference for Muslims and blacks who are not even representative of African-Americans generally, it’s no wonder Obama-inspired massacres like Dallas happen.”

If you aren’t aware of Klayman’s checkered past, he’s currently serving as the attorney for Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio as Arpaio fights charges that he has racially profiled and targeted Hispanics in his county for years.

The clearly unstable Klayman has also written that it’s not surprising the police officers were shot in Dallas:

“It is no wonder some cops, fearing for their lives in this anti-white, anti-Semitic and anti-Christian environment, sometimes are prone to literally pull the trigger too quickly.”

And it’s no wonder there is so much hatred and violence emanating from the far right in this country when you consider they have people like Larry Klayman sounding the trumpet for intolerance and stupidity.

Arizona GOP Legislator: Church Attendance Should Be Mandatory

Why is it that people who call themselves religious seem to have a deep-seated need to force their beliefs upon others, even going so far as to call for mandating church attendance? Is it insecurity, indifference to others, or just plain old inanity?

The latest culprit is a woman named Sylvia Allen. Ms. Allen, God bless her, is an Arizona State Senator and Tea Party favorite (need I say more?), who once declared that the earth is only 6,000 years old. But now she’s decided it’s time to make it a law for everyone in Arizona to attend church by edict of the government.

During a committee discussion on whether or not to allow citizens to carry guns in public facilities, Ms. Allen decided to go full wacko bird when she said:

“Probably we should be debating a bill requiring every American to attend a church of their choice on Sunday to see if we can get back to having a moral rebirth. I believe what’s happening to our country is that there’s a moral erosion of the soul of America.”

Not to mention the continual dumbing down of our elected officials nationwide. When she was asked about her statements later by the press, Allen didn’t back away from her words. No, she just dug the hole deeper and dove into it. In the 1950s, she recalled wistfully:

“People prayed, people went to church. I remember on Sundays the stores were closed. The biggest thing is religion was kicked out of our public places, out of our schools.”

Ah yes, nostalgia for the Fifties. When blacks couldn’t vote, women had virtually no rights, children were the property of their parents, and Ike kept us all safe under the comfort of a nuclear umbrella. Think about it long enough and it’s bound to bring tears of joy to your eyes. I’m quite sure it brings them to Sylvia Allen’s myopic view of the world.

How I wish people like Ms. Allen could one day understand just how ridiculous, narrow-minded, and empty-headed they sound when the long for the good old days. But as the old saying goes, that’s like asking a bear not to crap in the woods.

Tea Party Radio Host: Black Lawmakers Who Skip Bibi’s Speech ‘Should Be Hanging From A Noose’

Call me a naive optimist, but I like to think most people, deep down inside, are fundamentally good. Then I see someone like Tea Party radio host Andrea Shea King, and I’m no longer sure

On her radio show recently, King said she was outraged that some 50 Democratic members of Congress were planning to boycott today’s controversial speech by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. She said she had devised a suitable punishment for those Democrats and they should:

“Pay with their jobs (and) pay with their lives.”

While she was spreading hate and division, King decided to open up her bag of nastiness, reach deep inside, and add:

“I would like to think that these guys could pay with their lives, hanging from a noose in front of the U.S. Capitol Building. What they are doing is they are putting their own interests above that of America, and to me that is criminal.”

But King said she was especially unhappy with members of the Congressional Black Caucus, and she singled them out for her “hanging from a noose” punishment because:

“Their districts are all dumb clucks because these dumb clucks wouldn’t be electing these people if they knew better.”

I don’t know where Ms. King is from, and I don’t really care. I, however, was born and raised in the South, and know that the lynching of black people is one of the ugliest, most horrendous stains on our history, both in the South and across the United States. To even suggest that another person should be hanged with a noose simply because you disagree with them is nothing short of hate speech.

King revealed her true agenda when she said:

“How do people like this get to represent us in Congress? Because there are stupid people out there in those congressional districts who are so ignorant it’s dangerous….Stupid, stupid people. Our lives are on the line and all they can think of is skin color. All of us will turn black if we end up in a cage on fire.”

What is dangerous and destructive to the republic we live in, Ms. King, are hateful, racist people like you who think violence is the solution to every problem we have as a nation.

So as of right now, my optimism is still there, but it’s more than a little bit clouded by this ignorant woman’s words.
