The UW College Republicans (who haven’t bothered to buy their own url) are promoting “Islamo-Fascist Awareness Week” starting Monday.
Should we be aware of Islamo-fascists? Sure. I think the Bush Administration should be “aware” of Islamo-fascists, specifically one particular Islamo-fascist, who seems to be a wee bit slippery these days. But who can blame him? The guy is six foot, five inches tall, hooked up to a dialysis machine and puts out more videos than Kanye West. You might remember him. He’s the Islamo-fascist who actually attacked America on 9/11 and has so far gotten away with it. Yeah, that guy.
So why are the doughy-assed douchebags at the UWCR putting on this show? Because talking about Islamo-fascism is way more fun than signing up to do something about it.
Some of the programming this week:
And it’s hosting two events open to the public: a showing of “Suicide Killers,” a documentary about suicide bombers, at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Smith Hall, and a talk by conservative author and talk-show host Michael Medved at 7 p.m. Thursday in Kane Hall.
As for “Suicide Killers,” Medved has already told me the ending: the boxing coach helps his paralyzed boxer take her own life. Very sad.
The local Muslim community, no doubt excited for special attention they’re about to receive, respond:
Amin Odeh, a board member with the local Arab American Community Coalition, said he agrees that “radical anything is dangerous — radical Muslims, radical Christians, radical Jews. Education is needed.”
Education? Not for these patriots!

I’ll be having the President of the UW College Republicans on my show tonight, 710-KIRO at 9PM. (– Goldy)
