The Daily Hans: more anti-Islamic bigotry, no word yet from McKenna

Still no word from Rob McKenna regarding his endorsement of Girl-Scout-bashing, Baptist/Episcopalian-dissing, Islam-vilifying Hans Zeiger, so one can only assume that McKenna must agree with Zeiger when he, say, urges Republicans to unite in opposition to “the problem of Islam.”

I guess one can also assume that McKenna endorses Zeiger’s characterization of the immigration of brown-skinned people into Western nations as a “jihad.”

Here in the United States, immigration from Mexico and Latin America poses questions, beyond the immediate questions of illegal immigration, about the nature of American cultural identity and whether assimilation is still possible. Far more appalling than the crisis at the American Southern border is the jihad of the Muslim world on the continent of Europe. Facing a negative birthrate among native Europeans, immigrant Muslims from the Middle East are reproducing quickly and opening the very real specter of a culture clash more violent far than the present wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been.

I mean, how many times can Zeiger proclaim his bigoted, anti-Islamic xenophobia before it’s obvious to folks that Zeiger is a xenophobic, anti-Islamic bigot?

So unless and until McKenna — our state’s highest ranking and most prominent elected Republican — either denies, withdraws or qualifies his so-far unqualified endorsement of Zeiger, we can only assume that his coveted endorsement is based on young Zeiger’s claim to fame: his immense portfolio of batshit-crazy political commentary. And we can only assume that this is the kind of new leadership that McKenna wants to bring into the Republican party.

    He’s still the AG and still has his name out there endorsing a complete nut job. He needs to pull that endorsement.

    @5 No, he needs to be defeated when he runs for governor. Washington doesn’t have any moderate Republicans. McKenna is just another wingnut pretending to be a moderate.

    I’m so glad we have a certifiable xenophobic, Islamophobic, homophobe running for office in Washington. I no longer have to look to Nevada or Minnesota for this sort of entertainment.

    A Seattle cartoonist is going into hiding because of the stir she created with “everybody draw Moses Day” and the subsequent furor from the world Jewish community…oh wait.

    What’s Zeiger’s position on mice with human brains? We know O’Donnell’s very concerned about these mice.

    O’DONNELL: They are — they are doing that here in the United States. American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains. So they’re already into this experiment.,2933,311946,00.html
