Fox News Guest: Muslims Practice ‘Johnny- Come- Lately’ Religion And Pray To ‘Someone Who Wants To Kill You’
Today on Fox News’s Your World with Neil Cavuto, private investigator Bo Dietl argued that Arabs and Muslims should be subjected to racial profiling because Islam is a “Johnny-come-lately” religion and Muslims “pray to someone who wants to kill you.” Watch it:
And Neil, the bottom line is, this is a Johnny-come-lately religion. Christians and Jews have been around for 1600 years, 1500 years before. When they’re having a religion talking about killing people, I think we should reevaluate people who pray to someone who wants to kill you.
We do know one thing for sure – Dietl is a “Johnny-come-never” to religious tolerance.
This morning on CNN, Arianna Huffington blasted CNN journalist Chuck Roberts for suggesting that Ned Lamont “is the Al Qaeda candidate,” and demanded more accountability from journalists. David Brock, CEO of MediaMatters, has written CNN and urged them to discipline Roberts.
of possibly calling a 20-year-old volunteer of Indian descent on his opponent’s campaign a “monkey” (macaca). “This fellow here over here with the yellow shirt, Macaca, or whatever his name is. He’s with my opponent. … Lets give a welcome to Macaca, here. Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia.” The volunteer, S.R. Sidarth, was born and raised in Virginia. (Video here.)
Over the weekend, the television airwaves were inundated with conservatives calling for unity in response to the London terror plot. “No one should use this event or this war for political advantage,” Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) said on Fox News Sunday. “[M]y goodness,” Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) said yesterday, “if we can’t get national unity and take politics out of this in terms of an attack like this, I don’t know what’s going to happen to us.”
Much remains to be done to improve homeland security. For example, the administration has “yet to comprehensively improve sharing of counterterrorism information.” But rather than focus on policies to prepare against future terrorism, conservatives spent last week politicizing news of the London plot:
- “US President George W. Bush seized on a foiled London airline bomb plot to hammer unnamed critics he accused of having all but forgotten the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. ["¦] ‘Weeks before September 11th, this is going to play big,’ said another White House official.” [Agence France Presse, 8/10/06]
- “This week’s dramatic new terrorism threat may help remind voters Republicans have provided ‘strong leadership on that issue that won’t vacillate,’ Sen. John Thune of South Dakota said Friday. ‘People will focus on that issue this November,’ Thune said.” [Lincoln Journal Star, 8/12/06]
- “‘Defeatocrats!’ declared a statement issued by office of the House majority leader, John A. Boehner of Ohio, capturing the tone of Republican rhetoric as the news unfolded.” [New York Times, 8/11/06]
- “Today, President Bush faces a similar challenge. In the middle of a war on terror, we need to remain focused on furthering Republican ideas more than ever before. We can’t turn back now. [...] That’s why I am emailing to ask you for a favor: will you click here to make a contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50, $35 or $25 to show your strong commitment to our Party and our principles?” [Rudy Giuliani Fundraising Email, 8/10/06]
Apparently the right wing is not yet unified around the concept of national unity in the face of terrorism.
Yesterday on Meet the Press, former Rove deputy Ken Mehlman tried to claim that conservatives are “not coming in and saying ‘Stay the course’” in Iraq, but rather are advocating “Win by adapting.” Watch it:
But despite Mehlman’s statement, plenty of conservatives are saying “stay the course”:
“We’re not going to lose in Iraq. As a matter of fact, we will win in Iraq so long as we stay the course.” [7/11/06]
White House Press Secretary Tony Snow:
“The second thing you do [to win the hearts and minds of Iraqis] is you stay the course. And you allow the government of Prime Minister Maliki to create a functioning and successful democracy.” [7/10/06]
Sen. Bill Frist (R-TN):
“We’re for staying the course in Iraq and the war on terror.” [7/27/06]
Sen. John Thune (R-SD):
“And a believe that a free, democratic Iraq is quickly becoming an inevitable fact, and that now more than ever we need to stay the course there.” [2/17/05]
Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA):
“On behalf of our men and women in harm’s way, the children they protect, and the dreams and aspirations of Americans for a bright future, I will stay the course as a member of the Senate to support them in the war on terror.” [11/8/05]

imams at a London mosque into talking on air by claiming he was “a priest working in Rome.”
Labor Department deputy assistant secretary Karen Czarnecki has repeatedly appeared on television — including Fox News and PBS — as a pundit. While she apparently filed leave papers before heading to the studios and was cleared by the department’s ethics staff (political activity by federal employees is restricted by the Hatch Act), Czarnecki never revealed her government position. Instead she identified herself as a “conservative analyst.”
Some highlights of Czarnecki’s off-duty conservative analyses on PBS:
CZARNECKI: Absolutely [abstinence is an option for African women], if Uganda can reduce its HIV infected population 50% to 60 over the years, it’s definitely an option.
HOST: It’s no more an option than to tell them their option is to marry a millionaire.
CZARNECKI: If you have free — you have free choice to choose abstinence. [7/16/06]
