Yesterday you may remember how state Rep. and Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema was saying that he's totally cool with an ethically-deficient Speaker of the Michigan House of Representatives. Believe it or not, this isn't the stupidest thing Agema said this week.
According to the firewalled Gongwer, Agema thinks that (a) President Barack Obama is a secret Muslim and (b) pretty much all terrorists are Muslims.
Gongwer: "Which is it? He can't be both," he said. "It's disingenuous to say one time you're a Christian and then say another time you're a Muslim."
Mr. Agema said his other problem is with Mr. Obama saying Islam is a religion of peace.
"Not all Muslims are terrorists, but just about every terrorist is a Muslim," he said. "I disagree that Islam is a religion of peace."
Either Agema is a delusional nutter or a lying sack of shit (investigators have not ruled out the possibility he could be some combination of the two) because Obama has never said he is a Muslim.
As for Agema's claim that nearly every terrorist is a Muslim, that would probably come as a shock to anyone familar with the lynchings of Emmett Till and Viola Liuzzo, the Symbionese Liberation Army, the Posse Comitatus movement, the murder of Denver radio host Alan Berg, Jewish Defense League leaders Irv Rubin and Earl Krugel plot to kill Republican Congressman Darrell Issa, Columbine, and oh yeah, Tim McVeigh bombing the Oklahoma City federal building.
Of course, it's entirely possible Agema doesn't consider Oklahoma City an act of terrorism, which is obviously Muslim-y and weird thing. Perhaps he thinks Tim McVeigh was just trying one of those good old-fashioned "Second Amendment solutions" like a regular, true-blue 'Merican.
Either way, the very existence of Dave Agema suggests that perhaps the evolutionary process of natural selection hasn't eradicated humanity's basest and most vulgar traits.
