Cenk, do ypu think that a regular Republican knows who built the party now? Do they care? Do they understand comprimise? Would Reagan have accepted todays GOP in the house...Think...This party must go though complete change to be back to its roots....That is not possible with Romney, Boehner, Bachman, Gingrich, I do not all of them....They need a real slap on the face...like the one in Turks call "Ottoman Slap"...There is nothing untouchable left with these guys..Honor, Decency, Lies, creative lies...buying Media, buying Companies at the expense of the real middle class Americans...us.Our religious freedoms are at stake, our freedoms are at stake..soon free speech will be in danger...they are realy gone bunkers.....You as a member of the media..may have change to display the truths like you are doing...display some more...

This is Dee definitely not the party of Lincoln or Reagan or anyone else with the least bit of common sense. This is a party made up of the same extremism that they accuse others of.

Thank you for including the link to the report from the Center for American Progress, it brings so much illumination to the Islamophobic network.

Many of these people have appeared intermittently to speak and then return quickly to the shadows. I'm thinking particularly of Pam Geller, who seemed to be everywhere at once decrying the opening of the so-called Ground Zero Mosque. The "sacred ground" that the mosque/community center was to be built on, was not near the former World Trade Center site. It was several blocks away in a completely "non-sacred" former Burlington Coat Factory retail store. I believe the forces of good prevailed and the community center was built after all and recently opened.

From the report, here are some of the other network organizations, we will be hearing from them again I have no doubt:

"The movement is moving nationwide in more than 23 states—made possible by a combination of new, single-minded Islamophobia groups, exemplified by Brigitte Gabriel’s ACT! For America, Pam Geller’s Stop Islamization of America, David Horowitz’s Freedom Center, and existing groups such as the American Family Association and the Eagle Forum."

You're right and I understand she has a blog where she writes regularly. Perhaps I should have been turning over rocks to look for her as well, I might have found this choice quote:

"Pam Geller Justifies Breivik’s Terror: Youth Camp Had More ‘Middle Eastern or Mixed’ Races Than ‘Pure Norwegian".

Building a Mosque close to the 9/11 site is insensitive at best, a beligerant statement at worse. It is not Islamaphobia to be against it.

Please specify what distance is suitable for them to build a mosque as to not be insensitive.

Of course it is islamophobia and its is very poorly disguised!!
That piece of land belonged to the Burlington Coat Factory and is several blocks away from the WTC.
This is hardly "sacred ground"...!
Who do you think you are fooling?

In the big picture, the greater challenge for the GOP is that many people - me included - have come to associate the Republican Party with hate and intolerance thanks in part to politicians like Bachmann and the party's talking heads - Limbaugh, et al. They have a PR problem.

John McCain said of election 2012
"I promise you, there will be huge scandals," says Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) who is old enough to remember Watergate. "There is too much money washing around; we don't know who contributed, and there's corruption associated with that kind of money."

Even though this letter may be a month old, I still am surprised by the other republicans calling their colleagues out on it. In the very recent past, all we used to hear was that the so called "responsible" republicans didn't feel it was their job to denounce what the more radical members of their party say. I wonder when and why that all changed.

I'm just glad it has. At some point, when what you're doing sickens even you, it's time to say enough. Apparently some conservatives are reaching that point...bless their hearts.

FDR rounded up Japanese Americans and put them in camps, GOP didn't. As far as Muslims don't they have to change their image also? To bring about change on how people view others don't both groups have to change?
04:20 PM on 07/21/2012
Yes, and FDR was wrong, too. However, that was 70 years ago.

I would generally agree with this, and instead of having Arabs/Jews/Americans/Europeans/Saudi Arabians/Egyptians/Islams/Christians etc. etc. etc. ad nauseam, how about we start using people's names? That's Ahmed, that's Yeshva, Joey, Hans, Fatma, Undu(clickclickclick, and no, I can't pronounce it) Zeng, Feng, and...can you shorten that up, or can we just call you 'alphabet'? In other words, people. PEOPLE. People with two thumbs, legs, eyes, ears, etc. Because once we dispense with all the transnational rhetorical/ideological incessant bloviations and illustrations and grand ideological contests, then maybe we'll get close to actually doing the (wait for it) WORK, the labor-stuff, necessary to try and make a positive impact in people's lives. Since I mentioned Egypt, let's take it as a f'rinstance. Ok, they just did the election-thing, and there was much clapping and cheering and...now what? Now, it's time to roll up the banners, and DO something. Party's over, it's Monday, back to work. HOW are those folks going to lift themself up 'out of the poop', and create a semi-meaningful future for themselves and the next generation? How are they going to make a positive impression on potential donor nations, to try and solicit tangible assistance? People can give speeches all day, but when it comes time to build a road, or a school, or do other stuff where you could potentially get your hands dirty and really accomplish something in this life...

"This Republican Party of Lincoln has become a party of theocracy."-profit
U.S. Representative Christopher Shays, R-CT, (New York Times 3/23/05)

Perhaps we should take Bachmann's advice and do an analysis of the televangelists - John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Rod Parsley, Franklin Graham, to name a few - those religious zealots that have structured their ministries based on not-for-profit tax codes and insist on pushing their anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, anti-muslim message into the political arena.

Perhaps we should review the Mormon and Catholic Churches and how they use their "donations" to sway elections (i.e. Prop 8 in California). Perhaps we should look at Hagee, Graham, Parsley and their anti Arabic, anti Muslim agendas........

Perhaps we should begin calling it as it is - if you are going to conduct yourself as a political entity then you should be taxed accordingly. If you are going to push hate and violence then your organization should be reviewed for hate crimes.

If you are, like Bachmann, and her ilk, using your position as public servant to the American people to slander and target particular people that you personally don't agree with, then the call should be total censure and removal from the public trust.
