Substitute Factor host Malkin fears "sharia creep"
Reported by Chrish - May 5, 2007 -
Radical right-winger Michelle Malkin filled in for Bill O'Reilly - again-last night 5/4/07. (Kirsten Powers just can't catch a break!) Malkin expressed her fears that accomodation for Muslims at KCI (Kansas City International) in the form of a place to wash their feet before prayer is more sisnister, and she argued vehemently with her guest, Hussein Ibish.
Citing the Investor's Business Daily, a source I've only seen used once before (by BillO), she tried to connect the Minneapolis cabbies who wouldn't take passengers carrying alcolhol, Target's accomodation of Muslim employees (allowing them to get another cashier to handle pork products), and this little shower. All she managed to do was put her extremist paranoia on display and assuage similar-minded viewers that it's all right to fear non-Christian rituals.
Rather than letting her guest speak on the subject, enlightening viewers to the history or significance of other cultures, Malkin overtalked and sneered and talked of Sharia creep, and invoked the bogus "war on Christmas" to enforce her delusions.
