Mark Williams, Tea Party Leader, Says Muslims Worship "Monkey God"

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Mark Williams has written another blog post apologizing -- to Hindus.

No mention of an apology to Muslims.

PREVIOUSLY:

As the Huffington Post first reported Monday, Mark Williams, the national Tea Party leader, is at it again.

In a rant against a planned 13-story mosque to be built near the World Trade Center site, Williams claims that Muslims worship a "monkey god."

Unsurprisingly, this has angered Muslims nationwide.

From Williams' blog:

The monument would consist of a Mosque for the worship of the terrorists' monkey-god (repeat: "the terrorists' monkey-god." if you feel that fits a description of Allah then that is your own deep-seated emotional baggage not mine, talk to the terrorists who use Allah as their excuse and the Muslims who apologize for and rationalize them) and a "cultural center" to propagandize for the extermination of all things not approved by their cult. It is a project of American Society for Muslim Advancement and the Cordoba Initiative, essentially the same group of apologists (but under 2 different names) for terrorists and the animals who use it as a terrorist ideology. They cloak their evil with new age gibberish that suggests Islam is just misunderstood.

In a press release, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a civil rights and advocacy group, responded to the hate speech.

"It would be shocking if such ignorant comments failed to elicit a strong response not only from Tea Party leaders, but from other parties throughout the political spectrum," said CAIR National Legislative Director Corey Saylor.
