After the shooting at Fort Hood by Nidal Hasan, a Muslim, Fox and Friends hosts Brian Kilmeade and Gretchen Carlson know just what needs to be done.
Kilmeade: “Do you think it’s time for the military to have special debriefings of Muslim Army officers — anybody enlisted?…Because if I’m going to be deployed in a foxhole, if I’m going to be sticking in an outpost, I got to know the guy next to me is not going to want to kill me.”
Carlson: “Could it be that out military was also exercising political correctness — even though he had a poor performance report, even though he spoke openly about being a radical and had those supposed postings online — could it be that the military was exercising political correctness in not approaching as seriously as they would have if he had not been a Muslim.”
Michele Bachmann, Carlson’s former nanny, must be so proud of this dimwit.

Unfortunately racism appears again. This time related to the winner of the NYC marathon.
There is an article in the New York Times about Mebrahtom Keflezighi, the men’s winner of this year’s NYC Marathon.
Several blogs and even some MSM pundits have questioned if Keflezighi is actually an American.
Keflezighi was an immigrant who came here when he was 12. He is an American citizen and has lived here for 22 years. As the Times points out he is ”a product of American distance running programs at the youth, college and professional levels.”
But 22 years of living and growing up in the United States is not enough for some people. They claim he is not an American runner.
An incredible claim considering this country was built by immigrants.
But that has not stopped the veiled racist comments including “Give us all a break. It’s just another African marathon winner.”
“In a commentary on CNBC.com, Darren Rovell wrote, “Nothing against Keflezighi, but ..continue reading
It is sad when a justice of the peace displays blatant racism.
That is just what happened according to an associated press release.
Thirty-year-old Beth Humphrey and 32-year-old Terence McKay an interracial couple came before Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish to be married.
Despite a Supreme Court ruling dating back to 1963 that says that the government cannot tell people who they can and cannot marry Bardwell refused to marry the couple.
He reasoned that in his experience most interracial marriages do not last long.
“I don’t do interracial marriages because I don’t want to put children in a situation they didn’t bring on themselves,” Bardwell said. “In my heart, I feel the children will later suffer.”
The ACLU was preparing a letter for the Louisiana Supreme Court, which oversees the state justices of the peace, asking them to investigate Bardwell and see if they can remove him from office.
Amazingly Bardwell told the Daily Star of Hammond Louisiana ..continue reading
A case was brought before the Supreme Court this week about a cross that was erected on public property. The law states that religious symbols can not be displayed on public land.
A 5-foot cross was placed on federal government land in the Mojave National Preserve to honor soldiers who died during WW1.
An article in Slate provides the following review of the interchange between Justice Scalia and Peter Eliasberg—the ACLU lawyer whose client objects to crosses on government land.
Eliasberg “suggests partway through the morning that perhaps a less controversial World War I memorial might consist of “a statue of a soldier which would honor all of the people who fought for America in World War I and not just the Christians.”
“The cross doesn’t honor non-Christians who fought in the war?” Scalia asks, stunned.
“A cross is the predominant symbol of Christianity, and it signifies that Jesus is the son of God and died to redeem mankind for our sins,” ..continue reading
As reported by thinkprogress John Derbyshire a columnist for the conservative National Review recently released a book with a chapter titled “The Case Against Female Suffrage.” Explaining that chapter during an interview Derbyshire said “…the logic of that chapter, that chapter five in my book, rests on the proposition that women voting is bad for conservatism, and as a conservative, of course, I think that’s bad for society.”
He seems to be on the same page as Ann Coulter who recently said “If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democrat president. It’s kind of a pipe dream, it’s a personal fantasy of mine, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women.” I wonder if she would be OK with having her vote taken away? She fits her ..continue reading
