At least they finally admitted that they think U.S. Muslims are “irrelevant.” What a bloodthirsty panel…. I’m surprised David Duke wasn’t on it.

CD, thanks for posting this. There are videos out showing the exchange now—-there is a full one (9:26) at Media Matters and one that is cut (5:06) to just show just Gabriel over at YouTube.

The longer one shows Frank Gaffney for the first 4:12 minutes and, as bigoted & untrue as much of what he promotes is, he is at least civil with the Muslim woman—it’s Gabriel who is snarlingly contemptuous.

Anyway, as far as I can tell the one at Media Matters is not embeddable, so if you want to use the YouTube clip I’d be sure to state up front that it does NOT show the entire exchange and also provide a link to the full version at MM, otherwise you could be accused of distorting what took place, which is what’s happening to Milbank right now.

One other piece of unsolicited advice: Since not everyone is familiar with the professional Islamophobes the way we here at LGF are, it also might be helpful to provide some context by linking to the SPLC’s pages on Frank Gaffney & Brigitte Gabriel. Another handy option is Right Wing Watch’s People page, which also has links to numerous stories about Gaffney & Gabriel.

I just watched the vid at TPM, it’s pretty gross. But maybe not as rude as Milbank portrayed it. Gaffney was polite at least, if seriously wrong-headed. Gabriel was pretty rude and smug though.

I watched the short version, and I thought Milbank was too easy on the panelists.

Thanks for pointing that out. I didn’t know about the videos.

I’ve gotta admit that Saba Ahmed handled herself with MUCH more aplomb than I would’ve been able to muster in such a situation. One of the main reasons I left Texas was because of ignorant bigots who felt they had the right to treat me with rudeness and/or contempt just because I was a woman wearing hijab. It made me really twitchy—still does, but it happens a lot less often up here. No one is riding around with a shotgun or rifle mounted in the rear window of their pickup truck here either, so that drastically reduces the chances of a bad outcome to a confrontation.
