Get outraged, point and laugh, do whatever makes you feel better.  Among his constituency, he just earned votes, not lost them.  Maybe next  he can address whether or not black people are American enough.

This guy is a nut.  He's been under fire for bashing gays and now this.  The funniest thing about it is that the GOP leadership doesn't tell him to STFU which is why people have a hard time taking the GOP seriously.  And I thought the LP had it's share of nuts.

It's a free country.

Why should anybody be expected to do anything for you, Mr. Entitled Whitey McJackass?

JFK:  "Ask not what your countrymen have done for you, but what you have done for your countrymen . . .  Jackass. I mean it. You're a prize jackass, and as a Democrat I can only assume you are a Republican Jackass to boot."

"I'm Jack Kennedy and knowing me the way I do, you're no me."

So, give us the tally, how many Muslim and how many Catholic invaded your backdoor? Is it still sore?

I mean, is it a CSB of yours or you have some sort of citation?

For muslim clerics not raping.  Just because it's not reported doesn't mean it's not happening.  The Catholic Church is just major because of the hypocrisy, the cover-up and the deep pockets.  Other Christian denominations are recently under fire for similar abuse but because of the lack of a strong central leadership it's not major news.

There was an ongoing scandal with Catholic priests, child molestation, and the Church covering it up. You might have heard about it.

Zero was being used well before Christianity existed, much less Islam. If this guy had said "arabs" instead of "Muslims" your joke would be on point.

Marcus Aurelius: Base 10 decimal number system?


To be fair, MULTIPLE civilizations across the world had base 10 systems (10 fingers). Some had base 5 and others base 20.

But, our numbers as we write them, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0 are called Arabic numerals and greatly help us do math, as opposed to MM + MCCMVXI = ??

Well, before they lost their collective little minds to religious fundamentalism, they were THE resource for math and science.

A better question would be 'what have they done in the last century or three', and that would be 'not much'.

In the US, yeah.

Overseas, though, Muslim clerics are just perfectly fine with marrying off 10-year old girls and so forth.

So pretty much I say wipe out all religion, 'cause they're all bad for children.

Seriously, these GOPers are hardly trying anymore. Muslims are very heavily involved in all sorts of businesses all around me.
Anecdotaly I can say the many Michigan muslims I know personally are some of the hardest working people I know.

I did. I was referring to the other part, where he suggested that more abuses were done by Muslim clerics. Given that if there were ever a sign of that Fox News would have been on it 24/7, I'm pretty sure I'd have heard about it if it were ever on the news.

I'm sure there are just as many, if not more, Muslim clerics who molest little boys than there are Catholic priests who do it.  The media only reports on the Catholic priests doing it because they're solidly anti-Christian, as we all know.  I mean, you wouldn't expect the Muslim-lovers on Fox News--who always softpedal  anything that might paint Muslims in a bad light--to report on all of these Muslim cleric pedophilia scandals, would you?  Study it out.

TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: Also, a Muslim man invented / discovered (building on the works of others, of course) what we now call Algebra, though I imagine that Mr Agema probably doesn't have much call for science in his daily life.



I think that math is on the very long list of things Republicans are against.

None of the men listed was/is/is melanin-disadvantaged. (And I think they were converts to Islam, but I'm not certain.)
 
2014-01-16 01:02:26 PM
A spokesperson for the Michigan Republican Party declined comment on Agema's latest statements. Party rules do not allow for his removal from the RNC post, which he is scheduled to hold through 2016. Agema has served as a committeeman since 2012, when party members elected him at a state convention.

Oh my God! We stuck our dick in crazy and now she's at the door, nine months later, holding a baby! How did this happen!?!?

I don't know for sure either. I didn't think of it hard enough before (as apparent from my inability to spell the name correctly). It was the first 3 names came to mind.

However, since he was complaining about Muslims and not Arabs (I doubt he knows the difference), melanin should have nothing to do with it, or the fact that they were not born Muslim (I don't know if they were, or not).

If it wasn't for Muslims there would be no Fark.


Also, the arabic numbers, plus 0, but that is a very different discussion.

And, they preserved -and improved- knowledge of Roman Engineering and Architecture, right alongside the Byzantines.
