Joe Scarborough: Muslims Hate Us Because Of Their Religion, Culture

This morning, Joe Scarborough channeled George W. Bush's "they hate us because we're free" nonsense, except his version was laced with bigotry. SCARBOROUGH: You know why they hate us? They hate us because of their religion. They hate us because of their culture. And they hate us because of peer pressure.

SCARBOROUGH: You know why they hate us? They hate us because of their religion. They hate us because of their culture. And they hate us because of peer pressure.

Uh---peer pressure? Then he doubled down on this hateful rant.

SCARBOROUGH: Give me a break. You know, it's just like oh, you know, they hate us because of waterboarding. No, they hate us because they hate us. They hate us because of Obama's drone attacks. No, they don't -- they hate us because they hate us. They hate us because someone burned a Koran. No, they don't -- they hate us because they hate us.

Yeah, the fact that we've spent the past sixty years toppling their democratically-elected regimes while propping up brutal ones, the fact that we've invaded and occupied their countries, bombed and droned them practically non-stop for three decades, tortured them, unconditionally backed their nuclear-armed rival, and built military installations all over their lands -- none of that has done anything whatsoever to cultivate Muslim anger and resentment against us.

No, they hate us because they're a bunch of ignorant, savage bigots.

What a jackass.

Can you help us out?
