Beck and Limbaugh Incite More Hatred Against Park51
In today’s news about the Park51 project in lower Manhattan, the right wing hate machine is running amok. The two most popular right wing talk radio ranters, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, were both spewing hatred and irrationality this morning to their angry hordes of listeners.
Beck labeled the Park51 project an “Allah tells me to blow up America mosque.”
And Limbaugh, not to be outdone, mocked the idea of “Muslim outreach” and said the Park51 builders are “planting the flag of victory,” so they can say “we won.”
At this point, the right wingers opposed to Park51 have dropped all attempts to hide the bigotry; their only argument against Park51 seems to be that they have a right to be bigoted, a right that trumps even the US Constitution. It’s a gigantic tantrum of prejudice.
And Jeffrey Goldberg is exactly right: If He Could, Bin Laden Would Bomb the Cordoba Initiative.
