Fox regular and well known Islamophobe Brigitte Gabriel made an appearance at this year's Values Voters Summit and continued to prove why her cohort over at Fox, Tamara Holder, was exactly right when she called Gabriel's hateful rhetoric "dangerous."

Gabriel continually makes overblown, hyperbolic, exaggerated claims about the "dangers of radical Islam" and this weekend was no exception.

Brigitte Gabriel: Hundreds Of Millions Of Muslims Are Aspiring Suicide Bombers:

How fitting that a conference ostensibly about guarding religious liberty included several speakers who used their time to level attacks against Muslim-Americans, including Brigitte Gabriel of the anti-Muslim group Act! for America.

Gabriel, whose organization focuses on fighting Muslim campus affinity groups and passing dubiously-constitutional laws barring sharia law, claimed in her speech this morning that around 180-300 million Muslims are “radical Islamists who are willing to strap bombs on their bodies and walk into this room and blow us all up to smithereens.”
