Taking a short break from their relentless campaign to demonize LGBT people, the American Family Association has announced that in light of the Fort Hood shooting, now is the time to expel all Muslims from the U.S. military. From the AFA’s “action” site:
Of course, most U.S. Muslims don’t shoot up their fellow soldiers. Fine. As soon as Muslims give us a foolproof way to identify their jihadis from their moderates, we’ll go back to allowing them to serve. You tell us who the ones are that we have to worry about, prove you’re right, and Muslims can once again serve. Until that day comes, we simply cannot afford the risk. You invent a jihadi-detector that works every time it’s used, and we’ll welcome you back with open arms. This is not Islamophobia, it is Islamo-realism.
And don’t give us reassurances about the oaths that Muslim soldiers take to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. Hasan took that oath, and it proved meaningless. In fact, the more devout a Muslim is, the more likely he is to lie to you through his teeth, since lying to the infidel to advance the cause of Islam is commended, not just permitted, in the Koran.
It’s time we all got over the nonsense that all cultures and religions are equally valid or worthy. They most certainly are not. While Christianity is a religion of peace, founded by the Prince of Peace, Islam is a religion of war and violence, founded by a man who routinely chopped the heads off his enemies, had sex with nine-year old girls, and made his wealth plundering merchant caravans. [snip] The barbarians are no longer at the gate. They’re inside the fort, and it’s time for the insanity to stop.
According to the DOD, there are about 20,000 practicing Muslims serving in all branches of the military. On the very slight upside to this story, maybe the rest of the country will now see what all of us have always known about the American Family Association.
