The wingnut mind
From Media Matters:
In a December 18 column headlined "Barack Hussein Obama: Once a Muslim, Always A Muslim" and posted on her website, right-wing pundit Debbie Schlussel argued that because Sen. Barack Obama's (D-IL) middle name is Hussein, his late, estranged father was of Muslim descent, and he has shown interest in his father's Kenyan heritage, Obama's "loyalties" must be called into question as he emerges as a possible Democratic presidential candidate. In the column, Schlussel asked: "So, even if he identifies strongly as a Christian ... is a man who Muslims think is a Muslim, who feels some sort of psychological need to prove himself to his absent Muslim father, and who is now moving in the direction of his father's heritage, a man we want as President when we are fighting the war of our lives against Islam? Where will his loyalties be?" She ended her column by asking if Obama becoming vice president instead would be acceptable. Answering her own question, she wrote: "NO WAY, JOSE ... Or, is that, HUSSEIN?"
The above is from a column by Debbie Schlussel, a conservative who makes frequent appearances on mainstream media outlets such as MSNBC and FOX.
This is the sort of idiocy and bigotry which has become more and more acceptible during this conservative era, and it's truly disgusting. (not to mention amazingly stupid and illogical.)
So now Barack Obama can't be trusted. After all, he'd sell out America to the Muslims in a split-second because of some imagined loyalty to their cause.
The only thing more pathetic than that is the fact that there's thousands of mutton-heads out there who will buy into it.
