The most hilarious thing is that Fischer singled out the Hutaree militia as an example of a religious group getting locked up, apparently failing to realize that this rather puts paid to his argument. For some reason, his brand of Christian dumbass can't figure out that the radical Islamic groups like al Qaeda are to Islam what Hutaree is to Christianity. Therefore, if you're going to paint the whole bunch with one radical brush, you've just managed to fuck over your own faith in the process.Bryan Fischer, who wrote a blog post this week arguing that the U.S. should have "no more mosques, period," explained to TPM today that "every single mosque is a potential terror training center or recruitment center for jihad" and thus "you cannot claim first amendment protections if your religious organization is engaged in subversive activities."
Alas, logic was never a strong suit for folks like him. We could, in fact, probably find out if there's a gene for logic by comparing his genome to actual rational people.

Apparently, Republican primaries are now contests for America's Next Top Xenophobic Fascist Fuck. And McCollum's one of the less certifiably-insane ones.The details of [Bill] McCollum's plan, as reported by the Miami Herald: "The proposed law would require immigrants to carry valid documentation or face up to 20 days in jail and would allow judges to hand down stiffer penalties to illegal immigrations who commit the same crimes as legal residents."
"Arizona is going to want this law,'' McCollum told reporters. "We're better, we're stronger, we're tougher and we're fairer.''
This shit keeps up, the next edition of the DSM will have to include "was once or is now a candidate in a Republican primary" as one of the diagnostic criteria for mental disorders.
