After Muslim Brotherhood candidate, Mohammed Morsi,officially became the first democratically-elected president of Egypt, it wasn’t long before
idiots politicians, went on to renounce the elections (and renounce democracy), while also spewing Islamophobic rhetoric. Former presidential-hopeful Michelle Bachmann (lunatic-MN) channeled her inner Joseph McCarthy and publicly stated that the Muslim Brotherhood had “infiltrated” U.S. government and influenced policies. This, to her, is a trend welcomed by president Osama Obama.
What is most concerning about these ridiculous, conspiratory remarks, is the fact that they often go unquestioned. The “threat” of “Islamism” is even a more preposterous idea than Bachmann’s belief that the Earth is 6,000 years old. Have we learned nothing from the “Red Scare?”
Islamophobia is so prevalent in congress, that representatives like Alan West (R-FL) denounced the democratic process in Egypt because the Muslim Brotherhood had won the elections. West’s head almost exploded when it was proven to him that democracy and Islam could harmoniously coexist, going against all the propaganda that brainwashed him into being an Islamophobe. Rather than questioning his views, he resorted to hate-speech rather than have his beliefs challenged.
I simply do not understand how representatives like West claim the U.S. is an advocate and protector of global democracy then call to repudiate (“refudiate?”) democratic results.
One thing I must say about these Islamophobes. They give us Muslims a lot of credit. For painting Muslims as backwards morons who know nothing about democracy and long to reinstate antiquarian ways of life, Muslims can effectively launch a “stealth internal Jihad” against the United States by engaging in government and influencing the democratic process. Does that make any sense?
