I just saw this excerpt from a Washington Times article over at Street Prophets:
So, because the crew pulled them off the plan in error, because they thought the imans were terrorists, the only *logical* explanation must be that they were "pretending to be terrorists". *That's* how they made that mistake. Those devious, sneaky imams. Praying like that! Any *reasonable* person seeing several men praying together would just *naturally* assume they were terrorists. Or, you know, people openly practicing their faith.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told an audience in New Hampshire Muslim clerics pulled off a plane for praying should have been charged criminally.
Gingrich made the remark Friday night, as he delivered the keynote speech at the Manchester Republican City Committee Christmas dinner, the Manchester (N.H.) Union Leader reported.
"Those six people should have been arrested and prosecuted for pretending to be terrorists," Gingrich said. "And the crew of the U.S. airplane should have been invited to the White House and congratulated for being correct in the protection of citizens."
But they were brown, so they must have been terrorists.
Disclaimer: while I don't flatter myself to believe that the So Called Liberal Media is actually reading my blog, one can't be too careful these days. So, just for the record, that stuff I just said? It was sarcasm.
You never know--someone from Greater Boston might be reading.
