Ladies and Gentlemen, Erik Rush and Jim Garrow

I think Erik Rush and Jim Garrow should go on the road to play comedy clubs and theaters. They can call it the Tweedledumbass and Tweedledumberass tour. When you read exchanges like this, all you can do is shake your head that they can be this inane and that there are people dumb enough to believe them.

On his radio show earlier this month, Erik Rush told far-right conspiracy theorist Jim Garrow that the Obama administration is seeking new gun laws in order to forcibly disarm Americans and enable Islamists to take over the country.

Rush warned Americans, like others, may soon be “waking up and going, ‘holy crap, we’re all Muslims.’”

“They are trying to dilute, subvert and nullify our Second Amendment rights so we won’t have — we’ll have armed jihadis coming to our doors and we won’t be able to defend [ourselves],” he added…

Garrow also discussed his latest conspiracy theory about the Obama administration supposedly introducing Sharia law by asking government officials if they would “show loyalty to Islam” or consider converting to Islam.

Okay, I’m confused. Is this before or after he nukes South Carolina and starts talking to aliens?

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    OMG, they’re going to force us to believe that there is only one God and He wants us to obey Him and He has a strict moral code that forbids sex outside of marriage and condemns homosexuality and—wait, hrm, which side are we on again?

  • tsig

    That actually happened to me, I woke up and holy crap I was a white, male American.

    (Of course that was the way I went to sleep)

    The lord surely works in odd ways and has strange friends.

    Tsig – worse, he moves in mysterious ways (you should see him shake his ass on the dance floor, not his face ’cause then he’d have to kill ya, but his sweet, sweet ass is what he like you to admire*).

    Why do we even let Garrow across the border?

  • matty1

    Maybe it happened to Erik himself, he was thinking through his views on gays, women and the importance of religious law and woke up and realised that the only difference between him and fundamentalist Muslims is he can face any way he wants when praying.

    Why do we even let Garrow across the border?

    Good question.

    Jim Garrow …. war” to protect the Bundy ranch (and also threatened to have Harry Reid’s “balls ripped off”). …… On Tuesday, we noted that right-wing conspiracy theorist Jim Garrow — a notorious con man who now claims to be a …

    that Obama administration officials and members of Congress should be killed for treason.

    Among his paranoid ravings, Garrow has threatened the US president and some mebers of congress with death.

    They’ve tightened up the border crossings. A while ago, you couldn’t even cross into Canada if you had a DUI three decades ago.

    Who knows? Maybe they are just giving the America haters and kooks a long rope and seeing how tangled up in it they can get. Or maybe they think he makes the rightwing look so bad, it actually helps the normal people.

    Death threats are felonies and, after, Gabbrielle Giffords was shot, they started arresting them. Politicians really hate it when they are the ones getting killed. Looks like they’ve stopped doing that again.

    Muslims going door to door, badgering people in to converting? (“Mom! The Muslims and the JWs and the Mormons are tussling on the front lawn again!” “Turn on the sprinkler, dear.”)

    As far as I know, Garrow is a Canadian hater and kook. At least he lives in Guelph, Ontario. Perhaps he’s a US citizen and they have to let him in.

    Modus! Another damn internet? Aren’t you getting tired of them?

    Yeah, I know.

    That still doesn’t explain why they let him cross the border.

  • sigurd jorsalfar

    They keep letting across the border because he’s CIA. But you didn’t hear that from me.

  • Trebuchet

    That still doesn’t explain why they let him cross the border.

    In either direction, now that I think of it.

    Rush warned Americans, like others, may soon be “waking up and going, ‘holy crap, we’re all Muslims.’”

    frankly, if it were that easy, Americans wouldn’t even notice, so long as they still had their cars and TVs and maybe their cellphones.

    Muslim Bandidos?
