    How long before the MSM starts referring to Enrique Marquez as a “White Hispanic?”

  • http://o.com CaptDMO

    Gosh, that whole Reichstag fire thing is soooooo yesterday….
    Except Iran, I guess nobody got the memo.

    MAN CHARGED WITH HOUSTON MOSQUE FIRE CLAIMS TO HAVE BEEN DEVOUT ATTENDEE

    To paraphrase ExJon:

    “I’m so sick and tired of white Christians committing crimes against…oh, it was a Muslim? Well, hey, let’s not judge an entire race or religion here!”

  • Wombat_socho

    Fuck Salon, seriously.

  • Wombat_socho

    Probably never, since he was working with those innocent Muslims who prematurely reacted to the backlash and snapped…or some such bullshit.

  • Matt_SE

    “Imam claims to be unfamiliar with Moore, who attended services at the mosque earlier on the day of the fire.”

    And THIS is why you don’t hear more backlash from the “moderate” Muslim community. They are insular and xenophobic, and do not generally cooperate with law enforcement.
    I’ll bet the imam knew every single member by name.

  • Daniel Freeman

    It’s literally against their “religion” to say anything to an infidel that would cast Islam or a Muslim in a bad light. If he hadn’t done taqiyya (lying jihad), he would’ve been apostate.

  • Daniel Freeman

    I’ve come to the conclusion that you can either be a good American or a good Muslim, but not both. They’re fundamentally incompatible if practiced as originally intended, because Islam demands submission, and America was founded on rebellion.

    I’ve decided that we should give every American Muslim a choice: leave, recant or die. Any who refuse to either leave or recant is clearly a soldier, including the women and children, invading the Dar al-harb. They can go back to the Dar al-Islam, or recant or die.

    Remember when Ann Coulter got thrown out of NR for proposing this? I’m beginning to think she was just ahead of the curve.

  • Daniel Freeman

    No, I was not paying attention back then. But yeah, if she was saying it before, then ahead of the curve.

    I have some friends that I hope will recant. Great guys (because they’re apostate).
