Glenn Reynolds: Anti-Muslim Craziness Is All Obama’s Fault
Glenn Reynolds provides us with a textbook example of Obama Derangement Syndrome, mixed with a blind dumb partisan instinct to deny responsibility for their own inflammatory rhetoric, and blame the other side for absolutely everything.
It occurs to me that right after 9/11 we saw the beginning anti-mosque demonstrations but those quickly dissipated. Why? Probably because right after this march, we had Bush’s WTC bullhorn speech and people started to feel confident that Bush would protect the country. With less confidence in Obama, are they resorting to self-help? It’s a long way from bacon to beheadings, of course, but a sense that the powers-that-be can’t be trusted to protect the country is dangerous and destabilizing.
With all of the anti-Muslim hysteria being promoted not just by idiot bloggers like Pamela Geller, but top GOP politicians, Fox News, and every single right wing talk radio host, Glenn Reynolds twists the fabric of space and time itself to find a way to blame it on President Obama. Amazingly pathetic.
