More Islamophobia

As you can tell, I've spent quite a bit of time this week looking at not only the Park51 uproar in New York, but also the growing strain of virulence in the opposition across the country to mosques and Islamic centers, with many opposed using "self protection" as an excuse for barely concealed ignorance and hate speech. TPM has been digging into this phenomenon some more as well, and here's their report. Prepare to just feel the warm fuzzies wash over you as you read it.

I don't tend to be a huge Jon Stewart fan, but this was about as on-point as it gets when it comes to slapping at this fear! fear! fear! mentality. Fabulous job at pointing out the roaring hypocrisy of these people. Enjoy.
