So, American Muslims believed alot of the same anti-gay, anti-abortion, abstinence only crap Republicans pushed, and so they voted that way. But a decade of festering and growing religious bigotry and xenophobia drove them away from the GOP?

Nah, thats gotta be bulls***! Republicans lost because Muslims wanted free stuff from the government, just like all other brown people. /sarc

Well, even if the DoJ had acted less sweepingly, Muslim-Americans would likely have turned away from George W. Bush anyways over Iraq. But that was a price Bush was willing to pay to get Saddam Hussein and his psychopathic sons flatlined.

But Mr. Jazayerli is right about what has happened since George W. Bush left office, though I'd say the process began in 2006, when the combination of the defeat of Bush's plan for Social Security reform, Hurricane Katrina, and Iraq falling into civil war left the Bush Administration adrift and disconnected from the Republican party in many ways. Though after the 2006 mid-term "thumpin" Bush himself rallied and ordered the surge in Iraq that help stabilize that nation, he was no longer really the GOP's leader. Indeed, the Republican party has not had a political leader since 2006. And as we know, into that gap have the "entertainers" and bigots stepped.
