Stuff like this just makes me crazy. I linked to a Dennis Prager column a week or so ago talking about Keith Ellison's insistence on using the Koran instead of the Bible when taking his oath of office. I agree completely with Prager, it should not be allowed. How can Ellison, a Muslim, swear to uphold our constitution anyway? His religion demands our annihilation, and it is commanded in the very book he wants to use to take his oath of office. This is the most upside down, crazy thinking I've ever seen.

Now CAIR, of all groups, is calling him "intolerant" and "hate-inciting." Get a load of this:

"No one who holds such bigoted, intolerant and divisive views should be in a policy-making position at a taxpayer-funded institution that seeks to educate Americans about the destructive impact hatred has had, and continues to have, on every society," CAIR wrote in its letter to the museum council's president, Fred Zeidman.

"As a presidential appointee, Prager's continued presence on the council would send a negative message to Muslims worldwide about America's commitment to religious tolerance," CAIR wrote.

The writer was speaking of Prager, but he should have been speaking of Ellison. It is groups like CAIR who are intolerant and divisive, seeking to make political hay out of every situation involving a Muslim. It is amazing to me that a group like this is lecturing someone else about hatred and religious tolerance. And of course, the Left and the media will eat it up.

UPDATE: Dennis Prager responds.

JASmius adds: Typical; CAIR and its jihadi-symp dhimmis only advocate "tolerance" for themselves, and seek to bully everybody else into silence with lies and smears - and perhaps worse.

If they want to shut Dennis Prager up, let them address and refute his argument against Representative-elect Keith Ellison's (D-Tehran) overturning two centuries of tradition by refusing to be ceremonially sworn in with his hand on a Bible. Surely if Prager is the "racist" and "religious bigot" they shriek he is, it shouldn't be too difficult.

UPDATE II: Don't believe me? Try Cap'n Ed's dissent on for size.
