How is a Hate Crime by Muslims in New Jersey Like WMD in Iraq?

via Eschaton/ via Mithras

Via this shithead, I learned that there has been an arrest in the murder of the Egyptian Coptic Christian family in New Jersey. You might recall that the right went crazy with accusations of Muslim terrorism when the murder story broke. Well, here's the report: read the post

So, apparently, no Muslim involvement at all. But the idea that Muslims are killing Christians in America has now irretrievably spread through the righteous call to arms of the right-wing fuckwits. So, I'd like to give a big F--- Y-u to Michelle Malkin (who posted a multi-part series entitled "HATE CRIME IN JERSEY CITY HEIGHTS"), Powerline, Adam Yoshida (or a reasonable facsimile thereof), Charles Bird, Junkyardblog, Silent Running, and more fringily (and scarily), American Jihad. I intentionally ignored the literally dozens of other minor fascist twits who ran with the hate ball, because I want to make a clear point: The prominent right-wing bloggers, the so-called A- and B-list, including Time's "Blog of the Year", spread hateful lies constantly. They should be called on it. Sham apologies are insufficient. These idiots should stay away from keyboards for the same reason drunks need to be steered away from bars: the results are never pretty, and innocent people may end up getting hurt.

(update Alll Spin Zone has more)
