GOP's anti-Muslim display likening Rep. Omar to a terrorist rocks W. Virginia capitol

"We have allowed national level politics to become a cancer on our state," the House speaker said.


Quote:
Angry arguments broke out in the West Virginia statehouse on Friday after the state Republican Party allegedly set up an anti-Muslim display in the rotunda linking the 9/11 terror attacks to a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota.

One staff member was physically injured during the morning's confrontations, and another official resigned after being accused of making anti-Muslim comments.

The display featured a picture of the World Trade Center in New York City as a fireball exploded from the one of the Twin Towers, set above a picture of Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, who's a Muslim.

"'Never forget' - you said. . ." read a caption on the first picture. "I am the proof - you have forgotten," read the caption under the picture of Omar, who is wearing a hijab.

This from the link is quite disturbing:

Another Republican delegate, Eric Porterfield, was hit with calls to resign last month after he called LGBTQ groups "the closest thing to political terrorism in America" and "a modern day version of the Ku Klux Klan."

"Let me (be) very clear with my statement," Porterfield told NBC News then. "The LGBTQ — not homosexuals — are the modern day version of the Ku Klux Klan."

I thought WV was too busy handling the pouring in wealth of its revived coal industry for such distractions? Wasn't that the promise, elect Republicans and drown in money as the state reverses course and stops being the second-worst state? I'd hate to suggest any Republican politician would resort to identity politics in an effort to distract people from actual issues.

I was reading the story at the time and that was my take away: if you needed a stereotypical caricature of an old white southern Male you'd draw this guy.

But you need to read the tv interview he gave later in the week when asked what he would do if his son or daughter was gay. Among some benign things he ended with "I'd take him/her swimming" inferring he'd drown them.

Doing a quick read about the marriages themselves, on the surface it looks like there might be some irregularities but certainly nothing that is in the realm of impossible. However, according to Snopes, the "married her brother" claim originated from one anonymous post on a Somali forum. Surely that can't be the level of proof you accept to continue to spread such a rumour.

And another sterling example of the double standards and false equivalencies of Republicans:

A Democrat is critical of Israel = Anti-Semitic.

A Republican is blatantly Islamaphobic = Hey look over there... a squirrel!

Appealing to Conspiracy Theories and pathetic tu quoques is apparently the only kind of response your going to get from the local righties.

God forbid they say something like “we really need to get this kind of bigotry out of the party” that might break the Reagan rule.

Also, it would mean they aren’t just hunky-dory with the bigotry.

It really is when it is in a thread about relating a Muslim to 9/11 when they had nothing to do with the attacks.

Do you have any thoughts on that?

I will say that its obvious the term 'raging jew-hater' has zero meaning when spoken by some posters.

Notable from the article about the display:

Quote:
Pushkin, who is Jewish, said he condemned the poster from the floor of the House and asked his colleagues to do the same.
If she is such a raging jew-hater wouldn't he have been pleased with this display?

Fun fact: Number of citizens of West Virginia killed on 9/11: 0.

New York's 18-year-old tragedy (which they have overcome) is little more than a hammer for bigots.

Unconvincing. When Hillary said that "half" of Trump's supporters were deplorable, virtually all of them were offended. Why? Apparently it's because they don't consider bigots to be deplorable, which we might deduce from the very fact that they voted for Trump.

Jesus Christ, what a nincompoop. He appears to believe that there's an organization called "The LGBTQ".

https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-...rn-day-n970231

Quote:
"The LGBTQ — not homosexuals, but the LGBTQ — is the closest thing to political terrorism in America," Porterfield told NBC News. While Porterfield did not elaborate on what he specifically meant by "the LGBTQ," he appeared to be speaking about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people who advocate for LGBTQ rights.

Porterfield started his nearly week-long series of commentary regarding "the LGBTQ" last Wednesday in the West Virginia House during a debate about local discrimination ordinances.

“The LGBT is the most socialist group in this country,” he said during an "extended diatribe," according to The Charleston Gazette-Mail. “They do not protect gays. There are many gays they persecute if they do not line up with their social ideology.”

Porterfield then reiterated his views during an interview on Friday with the paper. “The LGBTQ is a modern day version of the Ku Klux Klan, without wearing hoods with their antics of hate,” Porterfield told the Gazette-Mail.
He's said it multiple times.

Apparently he lost his eyesight in a bar fight at a strip club in which he was allegedly the aggressor.

The Legion of Great Biceps, Traps, and Quads. To be fair, there's a lot of crossover between the gay population and the Legion.

Here are just a couple of the ways people in christian conservative nutjob bubble land help themselves sleep at night.

Anyone even remotely critical of anything Trump does = socialist.

Anyone even remotely critical of anything Israel does = jew hater.

You got any evidence of this supposed "immigration fraud"?

I mean, an esteemed poster such as yourself wouldn't just be throwing these kinds of accusations around without anything to back them up, right?

Come on, show us the goods.

Come on, show us the goods.
Well rich reality stars can import underage models into the US where they work essentially as slaves with the threat of deportation. You can even import one in under false pretenses, have her violate her visa by working, then lie when you marry her, and instead of her being deported, she becomes the first lady.

He's said it multiple times.

Apparently he lost his eyesight in a bar fight at a strip club in which he was allegedly the aggressor.
Yeah, what a winner this guy is! Steps into an altercation that was already winding down, starts a fight, gets the crap kicked out of him, loses his vision, then has the audacity to sue the bar because he thinks they should have provided security that would have prevented him from starting the fight! What a freakin' dickwad!
