When you hate people irrationally, you can go this low
Look at David Koresh. He had a religious institution until the government decided to load up their missiles and blowed it up and killed everybody.
That from Joe Brandon Jr, attorney for the plaintiff’s in the suit to stop the construction of the Murfreesboro, TN mosque from being built. Brandon wants to deny citizens their right to religion based on what he thinks the federal government may do to them if they exercise that right. In other words blame the victim. Perhaps he was giving a backhanded victim status to himself and all those who oppose the construction by saying Murfreesboro will become another Waco, Texas and the good “other” citizens will be the worse for it because the presence of a mosque made the US government go Waco on it. The devil made me do it is an even better excuse than the one Brandon was offering.
The judge ruling in the case, Judge Robert E. Corlew III who wasn’t persuaded by the absence of Brandon’s logic declared that county officials had legally approved the building of the mosque and the construction could proceed, declaring ‘Islam is still a religion’. That simple declarative statement, which Brandon and the plaintiffs he represented tried to nullify with innuendo guarantees the followers of Islam the same right to worship as any other religious denomination in the country. The rule of law, so preciously trumpeted by neocons for marauding, invading armies of empire was competently and successfully applied to several hundred families of Muslims in Murfreesboro, Tennesse.
