If you find his name familiar but can’t quite recall why . . . he’s the Florida-based, right wing, crazy, fundamentalist Christian of the snake-handling variety who threatened to burn a Koran in protest of the plans for a Mosque in Manhattan.
He gave up that idea after someone offered him a new car to shut up.
He has a mailing list. I signed up for it so I could monitor his evolving
insanity stupidity. Man, did that pay off big time just a few hours ago.
Here’s the text of a message that arrived as I was sipping my morning coffee.
July 22, 2011
Again, Islam has shown its face of violence. We condemn the actions that have taken place in Norway. This is further proof that we must stand up against radical Islam and send them a very clear message that we will not be intimidated. We will not back down from our goal of defeating terrorism. As long as we have a weak administration that bows to and appeases Islam, there will be no stopping terrorism.
Let us unite together and stop this reign of Islamic terror.– Dr. Terry Jones
So that is how we stop Muslim terror, huh? Replace it with Christian child-murder?
Jones has a jones about Muslims. He hates them so blindly, so totally, so knee-jerky that I am convinced he is one. Like secret pedophiles are the most voracious crusaders against Playboy Magazine. Like politicians whining against Social Security and Medicare taking care of the old and sick can be found drinking $350 bottles of wine. Like Trujillo used rice powder in public to hide his 1/2 Haitian blood.
The remaining problem I have with this morning’s rant is it has come too soon. Jones will lie low for another 6 or 7 weeks until September 11th, by which his lunatic supporters will have forgotten or rationalized away today’s stupidity. He’ll be back on his red-neck cracker barrel just in time.
