Yahoo Watch: Anti-Muslim Bigots

I am not a fan of religious bigots whether they be the anti-Catholic Nativists of the nineteenth century or the anti-Muslim bigots of our own time. But, the way that these bigots are so thoroughly inalert to the anti-American impulses they are giving voice to, their denial of religious freedom, their stupidity about the history of Christian-Muslim relations, and the broad sweeping generalities they make about the Muslim world, all are profoundly anti-American as well as profoundly bigoted.

The good folks at the Center for American Progress have compiled a set of links to the latest ridiculousness being peddled by the anti-Muslim bigots. Read it and weep.
