GOP County Chair Proves that Islamophobia Exists

Here’s yet another blow to the claim that there is no such thing as Islamophobia. A republican county chairman in Minnesota said on his Facebook page that we should kill Muslims taking their pilgrimage to Mecca, then followed up by saying that Muslims in America should be forced to accept Jesus or deported.

e chairman of a county Republican Party in Minnesota who believes that big government is actually a form of satanic “witchcraft” is not backing down from controversial comments he posted on his Facebook page about Muslims.

Big Stone County Republican chairman Jack Whitley said he opposed waterboarding terrorists because he believed that Muslim “parasites” should be killed.

“I am opposed to waterboarding muslim terrorists because it is a waste of resources,” he wrote Wednesday on Facebook “They are muslims, they are terrorist, we know where they are from, we know where their buddies are, we know where thier mosque’s are, we know millions of these parasites travel to Mecca every year and when…FRAG ‘EM! Simplicity. I love when it all comes together!”

And here comes the double down:

“This is where I’m making my stand,” he wrote in another Facebook post. “Muslims inTwin Cities Area are calling for me to apologize for a comment I made on facebook about them being. parasites and we need to frag them .I will not apologize and I will not compromise .They either need to repent except Jesus Chist or leave the country .Any Muslims or group of Muslims who do not stand against Jihad Muslim terrorist are consider part and parcel with the Muslim terrorist. I was just contacted by a reporter from the Minnespolis Star Tribune who will be writing a article on their blog site if you care to follow this story.Bravery is contagious , I am not a coward are you? If Muslims think they can come to this country and dictate anything that makes them terrorist ! Lets see if your love for God and country,patriotism,extends any further than your finger tips on the keyboard. If you want to consider this a call to arms,then so be it .”

And he’s an idiot on other subjects too:

On his Facebook page, Whitley has expressed concern about witchcraft and Satanism.

“An oversized government will always be an immoral government, creating entities where none are needed, to virtually control every aspect of the lives of its citizens, for the ‘greater good’, thereby creating rebels of the ones who will not bow to these corrupt entities. This is also known as witchcraft.”

He said that Hollywood, the NFL, the NBA, televangelists, the Christian music industry, the health industry, and academics were all part of the “government of Satan,” which he claimed had infiltrated the Christian church.

No wonder he’s in the Republican party leadership.

    Whitley told the StarTribune that he didn’t like Muslims because Islam was a violent religion.

    While he merely wants to forcibly convert Muslims to Christ or expel them from the country and bomb anyone on the way to Mecca (I wonder if he knows that’s located in an ally of the US).

    If we didn’t already know such people exist, my first thought would be that this is a parody.

  • John Pieret

    Well, at least the state GOP is taking stern action:

    Minnesota GOP Chairman Keith Downey said Whitley’s comments “could not be further from the Republican Party’s beliefs.” Downey noted the party has endorsed its first Somali-American candidate for the Legislature.

    Yes, yes … some of your best friends candidates are …

    we know where thier mosques are

    I am shocked to find that a bigot such as Whitley cannot spell or punctuate properly.

    Reginald Selkirk:

    They either need to repent except Jesus Chist or leave the country

    Not to mention that he couldn’t find a dictionary if his life depended on it.

    “They either need to repent except Jesus Chist . . .” So, all Muslims, except this Jesus Chist fellow, must repent.

    #3 Reginald Selkirk – I just spent the best part of the week grading freshmen college papers, which made this mess seem almost normal. Unfortunately, by now, this loon’s awful writing skills seem to be good enough to get them through high school and accepted into college these days. Not good enough to pass one of my classes, but it’s getting more depressing by the day.

    Re dhall @ #5

    Some Muslim clerics claim that Yeshua ben Yusef of Nazareth was a Muslim.

    Look at it on the bright side!!!

    I’m sure he wants to kill or forcibly convert atheists and Pagans as well. Same with evolutionary biologists and other scientists, except they get to be tortured first.

    I’m not guessing here. These groups all get frequent death threats from fundie xians and are occasionally victims of fundie violence. I’ve know for many years that they want to kill me. They say so themselves.

    It’s the fundie xian Doxology. Who do we hate? EVERYBODY!!! Rah, Rah, Rah Jesus!!!

    Isn’t this (inciting genocide) against the law?

    They either need to repent except Jesus Chist or leave the country

    Yeah, right: that trick was tried on spanish Muslims (and Jews) once “Convert or Leave“: many did convert, and then the authorities responded “We know your conversion under duress was not sincere, therefore you’ll leave or we’ll slaughter you“.

    I’m willing to bet both my balls that if american Muslims were to convert to christianity en masse, the very same racist politicians and talking heads would brought back the limpieza de sangre in a heartbeat.

    Of course! Baseball is America’s Pastime™, while those other sports are … um … played by a majority of people with suspiciously high melanin counts.

    Hollywood, the NFL, the NBA, televangelists, the Christian music industry, the health industry, and academics 

    Yet again our reptilian overlords cruelly, I say cruelly, overlooked!

  • matty1

    @6 I’m moderately confident that the Jesus being an Islamic prophet is in the Koran so I would think all or nearly all Muslim clergy believe it.

  • theguy

    So Captain Teabag is opposed to the government having the power”to virtually control every aspect of the lives of its citizens” but wants Muslims to “either need to repent except [sic] Jesus Chist or leave the country.”

    I’m continually amazed by right-wingers stupid enough to hold contradictory views and not realize it, and simultaneously arrogant enough to accuse everyone else of being low-information voters.

    It should have been obvious. I mean any league for a sport that was invented by Jews must be trying to kill baby Jesus and clearly wants to stab the ‘Good Christian Minnesotans’ in the back.

    Minnesota GOP Chairman Keith Downey said Whitley’s comments “could not be further from the Republican Party’s beliefs.”

    I don’t know. His views sound like that of mainstream republicans these days. Hell, one of their favorite authors advocated that same policy of forcible conversions to Christianity over a decade ago.

    “Some Muslim clerics claim that Yeshua ben Yusef of Nazareth was a Muslim.”

    Crazy Christian Lady: “Have you heard the Good News about Jesus?”

    Fatima: “That he’s one of the Most Holy prophets of Islam who will return in the Last Days to preach the eteranl truth of the Holy Koran? Yes, I have. Thank you.”

    Little Mosque on the Prairie (paraphrase because I can’t be bothered looking it up.)

    Mecca (I wonder if he knows that’s located in an ally of the US).

    He probably thinks it’s in California.

  • robertfoster

    Did he say ‘Frag ’em?’ I haven’t heard that term since Vietnam. What decade is he living in? Does he also believe that communists are hell bent on world domination? Or that AIDS is god’s punishment for sodomy?

    Of course. Why else would they style themselves the “No Bible Association”?

    He said that Hollywood, the NFL, the NBA, televangelists, the Christian music industry, the health industry, and academics were all part of the “government of Satan,” which he claimed had infiltrated the Christian church.

    Hollywood and televangelists are “fellow travelers”, as are the health industry* and academia? All part of the “government of Satan” which he claims has infiltrated the Christian church?

    With beliefs like that, he shouldn’t be in county government; he should be running around the wilderness with a rifle and a survival kit.

    * I guess he means the health-care industry, and not the fitness industry.

    Theguy [15] I believe that this is a real, live instance of Orwell’s Doublethink – the ability to hold two mutually exclusive opinions and hold both of them as true. and here I was thinking that was strictly fiction.
