Rhetorical question

Have all of our elected officials in DC gone completely batshit insane? No? Then how do you explain retarded speeches such as this one from Rep. Tancredo. Excerpt:


A Colorado congressman told a radio show host that the U.S. could "take out" Islamic holy sites if Muslim fundamentalist terrorists attacked the country with nuclear weapons.

Rep. Tom Tancredo made his remarks Friday on WFLA-AM in Orlando, Fla. His spokesman stressed he was only speaking hypothetically.

Talk show host Pat Campbell asked the Littleton Republican how the country should respond if terrorists struck several U.S. cities with nuclear weapons.

"Well, what if you said something like — if this happens in the United States, and we determine that it is the result of extremist, fundamentalist Muslims, you know, you could take out their holy sites," Tancredo answered.

"You're talking about bombing Mecca," Campbell said.

"Yeah," Tancredo responded.

Thanks, dickhead. You've just written the slogan for Al Qaeda's recruiting poster.

I've ceased to be amazed at the ridiculous quantites of horseshit that politicans vomit forth every day. The brain-asshole filter doesn't work too well, apparently, when your head is shoved completely up into your ass.

Rep. Tancredo, I give you credit: you've exceeded the fault tolerances for asshats AND asshelmets and moved into the next generation of idiocy: ass-turtlenecks. You dumbass.

Your reaction, unfortunately, is based on what appears to be an excerpting of Tancredo's remarks meant to elicit just that reaction. Check out Baldilock's post on the subject.

Actually, we should have bombed Mecca and Medina long ago. Islam is a cancer that threatens the future of the world. It is stuck in a 12th century mindset where women are cattle, all infidels must be killed, and all human rights and freedoms are anathema. It is capable of creating enormous dedication, where people are totally convinced they are right, and that they should kill others who don't believe. Read Surah 9. The terrorists are simply good muslims obeying the law as defined in the Quran.

Hide under your bed now!

Oh no! we're going to do things that annoy possible terrorists!

Better to capture Mecca and control access.
