Man, just when you think the right wing couldn’t get any crazier, here come Rep. Jeff Landry making the absolutely outlandish claim that President Obama is allowing Muslims to skip TSA security checks at the airport. He told this to Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice:
Landry: Down here in south Louisiana this is huge, this is very important to my constituency. I think the biggest problems that a lot of Americans are having out there is the hypocrisy of this administration. Remember, this is an administration who has no problem granting special status or waivers to Muslims as they go through TSA screenings. Look, as they believe that there is a need to grant them special rights as they go through the TSA screening based upon their religion, that’s fine, I’m ok with that. But then don’t turn around and attack Christians when they stand up and say ‘listen, we believe that the policies you’re putting in place violate our religious freedoms as well.
It should be obvious by now that there is nothing too absurd or dishonest that some wingnut won’t say it.
