The problem is, er, I didn’t write the excellent post spotlighting Simmons’ embarrassing 1993 World Trade Center bombing error last week.
Guest-blogger Doug Powers wrote it in a post that begins, er, “**Written by Doug Powers.”
Continuing his winning streak of botching facts and history, Simmons then criticizes President Bush for going on an unfettered “crusade” against Muslims. Apparently, he missed all the Saudi hand-holding photo-ops, Wahhabi Muslim pandering, reckless visa policies, dangerous Muslim donor outreach, “Islam is peace” speechifying and dhimmi State Department programs that flourished during the Bush years.
But let’s not let facts get in the way of a hip-hop Hollywood ISLAMOPHOBIA! diatribe.
Speaking of the Islamophobia card, Simmons is joined by my Fox News colleague Kirsten Powers and Daisy Khan, the wife of Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, in accusing conservatives of being motivated by “hate.”
And this: The May Day angry mob you won’t see.
And this: How the Left fakes the hate: A primer.
And this: This is what mob rule looks like.
But let’s not let facts get in the way of liberal EPIDEMIC OF HATE! diatribes.
