CNN contributor Dana Loesch sparked controversy this week by reviving the smear that President Obama was educated in a "madrassa." As we noted, the word "madrassa" has become a loaded term associated with anti-Western indoctrination. Loesch responded to the controversy in remarks to The Washington Post's Erik Wemple.
Loesch suggested in her comments this week that the Quran instructs its adherents to "find the infidel where they lay and slay them." In 2010, Loesch similarly suggested that all Muslims are violent.
As Charles Johnson noted at Little Green Footballs, Loesch published a blog post in September 2010 about pastor Terry Jones' threat to burn Qurans on the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Loesch suggested that the focus on Jones was misplaced and that instead, more attention should be paid to acts of violence committed by Muslims.
In conclusion, she wrote:
Obama says that "As Americans, we will not or ever be at war with Islam."
How many thousands of people must be murdered by Islam before he stops saying such?
Where did this nation's balls go?
