I’m sorry, but when it comes to too many Muslims, the truth is not in them. Below is a link to a recent discussion between George Weigel and Nihad Awad from CAIR. This is beyond spinning - it is pathology. Awad sits there, childishly telling lie upon lie upon lie upon lie. Mohammad never took up the sword! Jihad does not mean holy war! Islamic Nazis rioted because they are sensitive post 9/11! This is the kind of thing that, when you were 5, made your parents give up. They could accept one lie, as long as it was followed soon after by the truth. Two lies? OK, go to your room. Six lies? Ten lies? Time to call the shrink.
Almost worse is that insufferable affirmative-action dingbat Gwen Ifill. Again, how gotcha liberal journalism subverts the search for depth and the truth. Notice how when Weigel begins to put Pope Benedict’s - and Nimrod’s - in context with some history, thus explaining why Benedict’s comments are relevant, Ifill cuts him off - “Excuse me, but what does this have to do with Islam?” If you’re scoring at home: an Islamofascist can whitewash the entire history of his violent, cruel, dumb and childish religion, but when someone wlse offers correction, it’s out of bounds. No wonder the News Hour has 3 viewers.
