Robertson: Muslim Politicians Will 'Destroy' American Civilization
On todays 700 Club, Pat Robertson warns that Muslims becoming involved in politics, such as Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minnesota), want to take over and institute Sharia.

If the Christians dont get involvedWeve been harassed by People for the American Way, we have been harassed by Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, we have been harassed by the federal court system, but if the Christians wont stand up and not worry about the IRS, not worry about whether youre going to lose your tax exemption, not worry about whatever because youre going to lose your country if Christians dont mobilize and vote, warned Robertson. He added that The curse of God is to bring in people who dont share your point of view and then ultimately destroy your civilization. Well, thats what were facing for our children and grandchildren.

He's projecting again. He thinks he's Nehemiah Scudder again.

4. Nehemiah Scudder....
That's a slightly obscure reference, eh?

If this goes on.

Actually I agree with Robertson, extremist Muslim politicians could be every bit as damaging to freedom as are extremist Christian politicians and maybe even more so.

5. Not that obscure to some of us
I consider religious extremists of any stripe the same. Look at the fundamentalist nutjobs of any of the religions and they all want the same thing. Total control of you in every way.

7. How many
1) "extremist Muslim politicians" are there in America?
2) so-called "Christian" politicians who actually have strong business (and other) ties to Saudi Arabia and Dubai?

Subtract the former from the latter to calculate Robertson's (and the Repubs') hypocrisy rating.

2. Setting the stage
I am getting more and more worried about what the right might try to pull in 2008.

8. McCarthy Era Mark II.
An "extremist muslim politician" is about as likely in America as a "revolutionary communist politician", i.e. totally unfeasible. Robertson is scaremongering about something that doesn't and can't exist.

3. does this conflict with Bush's brand of Sharia law?
If this can ruin the "american civilization" it needs to be ruined.

6. He's worried about his tax exemptions
Taxation would really cut into his Flock-fleecing.

10. He is nuts! He sounds just like the Moslem extremists that he opposes
Ellison is, from what I gather, a liberal Democrat; which means that he has far fewer values in common with Moslem extremists than Robertson does. I suspect that if any pro-Sharia Moslem group is even aware of Ellison's existence, they probably hate him at least as much as Robertson does.

Similarly, I am sure that 'Americans United for the Separation of Church and State' do not, by definition, support Sharia!

Robertson is insane.
