American Family Association (Unaware of First Amendment) Now Looking to Isolate Muslims

by George on March 25, 2011

You wouldn’t think something called the “American Family Association” would be aligned with bigots, racists, or idiots – but if a recent post on their blog “Rightly Concerned” is any indication, they’ve certainly hit the moronic trifecta.

Let me quote the beginning of this odious emission emanating from the anus of the Internet:

“The First Amendment was written by the Founders to protect the free exercise of Christianity. They were making no effort to give special protections to Islam. Quite the contrary.”

Well, it’s utter bullshit – obviously – but if you want to see this ridiculous notion flayed like an onion, check out this article.

A dumbass is as a dumbass says

What the blog post writer did was take a piece of writing by a 19th century Supreme Court Justice out of context and spin in into something that might substantiate racist or fascist intent.

He isn’t intending to make America a better place, his endeavors are more sinister. He wants a more ethnically pure America; the promise of a pluralistic society fills him with dread because it will result in more brown people being in it.

He’s taking the customary low-road of trying to finesse a First Amendment argument to de-legitimize Muslims as citizens in the hope that, despite having no historical or legal ground for this, public passions can be arisen to nurse at the stem of this hateful seed, and that flowering bombastic synergies can create an inertia of support to ride roughshod over a basic Constitutional privilege for one set of our citizens.

Once he succeeds at isolating American Muslims from the concept of being Americans, he will be free to move forward with further efforts to reduce their citizenship, control their travel, control their businesses, and make them a third-class citizen.

This is well beyond being a conservative. These are the thoughts of someone comfortable with the racial purity aspects we long ago associated with fascism.

The American Family Association needs to understand that we live in a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural society, and that the right of liberty, free speech, and freedom to worship are for all Americans regardless of their faith.

The writer clearly does not understand the rights granted under the First Amendment and seeks to pervert them to assuage his racist beliefs.

Allowing such odiferous, disingenuous bile to be part of their dialogue with the rest of the world condemns the American Family Association to a point of acclaim no higher than that of a hate group. Any claim of Christian intent is therefore laughable.
