Radical Cleric Jumps to Wild Conclusions About Ft. Hood Shooting

This is starting to make the veins in my forehead throb. Sarah Posner finds Vision America’s Rick Scarborough untethering himself completely from reality to opine on Maj. Hasan’s murders in Ft. Hood. Here’s what the former pastor of the First Baptist Church of Pearland, Texas, had to say:

We know that Dr. Hasan is a devout Muslim who once told a fellow officer that “Muslims have a right to stand up against the U.S. military.” Clearly, yesterday’s rampage was not motivated by love. Given Hasan’s worldview, it’s probable that he was motivated in part by an animus toward Christians and Jews. Assuming that murder charges are brought against him, will Hasan also be charged with a hate crime?

Just count the leaps in logic. It should be obvious that Scarborough is only barely talking about Hasan. He’s talking about Islam in general, since the basis for his wild-eyed speculations is Hasan’s “worldview,” by which the man means that Hasan is a “devout Muslim.” This is the next stage of the slander. In Scarborough’s view, Hasan isn’t even part of a small cohort of psychopaths who hijack Islam as a pretext for their murderous tendencies. He’s following the tenets of his religion — a religion subscribed to by something like a billion and a half people on this planet.

Conservatives want to bleat about how PC hysteria is inhibiting their right to say racist things about Muslims without criticism. But it’s funny how you never see people like Scarborough referred to as what they are: radical clerics.
