Anthony Weiner, who was unfairly attacked and in a stupid reason dismissed for a pretty minor scandal, is yet again in the spotlight. Though I suspect it may be his more staunch views on Obama half-bills and misappropriated promises, this time it involves good ole fashion bigotry on the part of his wife.
Perhaps the stupidest, most deluded woman in congress, Bachmann stated.
In her defense, McCain, the more moderate of the Republicans stated.Last week, a group of Republican lawmakers led by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) drew widespread condemnation from both sides of the aisle for the loosely sourced contention that Huma Abedin, the Muslim-American wife of former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
And representing good old stupidity.McCain strongly pushed back against this charge, taking to the Senate floor to call the allegations "nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable woman."
The brilliant scholar of Islamic theology had retorted.Wes Harris, the founder and chairman of the Original North Phoenix Tea Party, now says McCain's words have given him grounds to mount an effort to unseat the longtime senator.
In an interview with the Arizona Capitol Times, Harris called McCain an "embarrassment," before laying out a variety of unapologetic anti-Islamic sentiments.
“Have you ever read the Quran? I suggest you do so, because anyone that is a Muslim is a threat to this country, and that’s a fact,” Harris told the Times. “There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim. If they are Muslim they have to follow the Quran. That’s their religion and that’s their doctrine.”
If anyone still wants to compare Occupy with the Tea Party, you are daft mad. Occupy doesn't have the sheer number of idiots and loudmouths in top positions, it has no official nor government elected supporters and officials as the Tea Party, and actually has sane, objective policies such as removing corporations from wall street and better health and social services.
The Tea Party, though thank god is dying down since people can only realize the irrationality of the movement, still represents a considerable niche of radicalized right-wingers.
Anyone who is not simply stirred by the creeping bigotry and racism reawakening in America, is both deluded to progressive idealism and enlightenment values, as well as the plurality and freedom intentions of the nation's founders.
