At Geller-Spencer’s CPAC Panel, Anti-Muslim Activist Says He’s Proud of Attacks on Mosques

“It’s usually in the South, I’m proud to say”
Wingnuts • Views: 23,448

Speaking today at the unofficial CPAC panel “Islamic Law in America: How the Obama Justice Department Is Selling Us Out,” sponsored by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, James Lafferty of the Virginia Anti-Sharia Task Force was “proud to say” that most of the mosques attacked in the US were in the South: CPAC: Anti-Muslim Activist James Lafferty Says He’s ‘Proud’ of Attacks Against Mosques.

Well with what the gentleman was saying about the Justice Department, I went to the briefing, the hate crimes summit, and I went there and it was all Muslim officials speaking and they had all these pictures of some mosque somewhere, and it was usually in the South I’m proud to say where a guy would drive a pickup truck right into the mosque. They had I bet 20—it looked like the same picture after a while because they just kept showing these same pictures, and each Muslim speaker got up, and remember this is a Justice Department meeting, and really ragged on two groups: the FBI and the NYPD. So whatever they’re doing they’re doing something good.

This is far from the first example; Geller and Spencer are usually too cunning to express this kind of open support for anti-Muslim violence, but their associates … not so much: Pamela Geller Associate John Jay Openly Calls for Mass Murder.

Meanwhile, after ranting earlier this week that no one reads LGF or takes me seriously, and that I was a “boil on the ass of the blogosphere,” Geller blocked me on Twitter, then proceeded to tweet the following to me today — even though, since she blocked me, I was unlikely to even see it. (I only saw it because one of her followers retweeted it.)

This is the picture Geller posted:

It’s nice to know that Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and Andrew Breitbart all have a little internalized version of me living inside their heads, making them miserable.

More ugliness from the stew.

I'm still surprised that Santorum cozied up to an overt racist today. Geller I understand, but I thought Santorum had more decorum.

Is this the fake Liberty University dude or a new stooge for the cause?

I followed the play by play from work today. Kudos freetoken, yours were excellent to read. Depressing, but gave me the basic live feed.

santorum is savvy enough to know that this is his chance to make an Ugly Wingnut Noise so that they get into his boat

if he gets the nomination he will be sure to indignantly deny that he ever meant what he said - newt style

Thanks... I guess I aim to serve.

I only watched for an hour - I couldn't stand anymore and had to go to the gym.

Our society has always had these troglodytes, though there was a time when the GOP establishment wouldn't have been caught dead with them (at least in public.) I guess that has all changed now.

The Deepening Ties Between Spiritual Warriors and Anti-Islam Activists

Back in 2007, Cindy Jacobs set about creating the United States Reformation Prayer Network after God told her "about a new prayer movement that would arise to 'Possess the Gates in 2008.'" Since then, USRPN has "been at work building a network in all fifty states" in order to reach "the goal that God has given us ... to join 500,000 intercessors praying for reformation and to see a prayer saturated nation!"

Since we never tire of chronicling how spiritual warfare activists like Jacobs are making inroads and connections to the more "mainstream" Religious Right movement, we felt obligated to highlight this latest USRPN update from Jacobs in which she reveals that she has now started working with Andrea Lafferty and her anti-gay, anti-Islam hate group, the Traditional Values Coalition:

Once nation and brain is fully saturated, it seems like a good idea to say you're 'proud' that some idiot drove their pickup truck into a mosque.

Breitbart is the 21st century version of a morning show radio stunt guy, he's got his conservative schtick, but it's really not much different than the schlock on morning zoo shows

His one goal is to continue to make himself a personality, with stunts and acting out and tweeting and whatever else he can come up with

maybe he'll fuck a cake on camera next week, maybe he'll stand on top of the roof of a car dealership, who knows

Were the hell is the MSM on this? Why are they not pointing this shit out?

After all, isn't the MSM the biggest threat to conservatives? Isn't this sort of shit something they should be jumping all over?

I'm actually beginning to have some hope. The economy appears to be really improving and with it the President's approval ratings. The electoral map looks very promising to me, and perhaps if the GOP is atavistic enough, the Democrats might retain control of the Senate and gain a significant number of seats in Congress.

81 Lord Baron Viscount Duke Earl Count Planckton  Fri, Feb 10, 2012 6:09:48pm

[Link: newsone.com...]

Two conservative rappers, Steven Crowder and Chris Loesch dressed in powdered wigs and jumpsuits performed a pro-conservative rap, “Mr. America” in which they appeared to use the n-word before claiming that they were saying Knickers. The pun was intentional as the deejay cut off the beat as they said the word.

An African American technician walked away after the pun which was clearly intended to reference the n-word judging by the following lyrics. The n-word or k-word as they would have you believe comes at 1:50 in the video.

What next? They like Ikes?

This is not funny anymore. I wonder how close many of these CPAC lunatics are to actual physical violence.

Can you imagine their emotional state this November 6, if Obama is re-elected?

I still find all this hard to believe.

This is what comes of them living their christian tribal separatist dreams too long. Their dialogue becomes all internal and circular, and they become so unconscious of how they sound to the average voter that they commit huge gaffes that display exactly how ugly they are.

Kudos Charles. To paraphrase FDR, I hope you are judged by the enemies you have made.

They sure make it easy to feel like you're on the side of good. These people are caricatures of bigotry.
