The Murfreesboro Mosque has received recent media attention after fires were set on the property, damaging three vehicles, and their sign was defaced with the words ‘Not Welcome,’ in spay-paint. As the airing of the 700Club segment was prior to these actions, it’s difficult to ascertain whether they would have been committed without the fear-mongering and anti-Islamic propaganda provided by Pat Robertson and his staff.
This sort of incitement through disinformation and deliberate propaganda is inexcusable. This has the appearance of a deliberate attempt to cause civil unrest and promote hatred against a specific group of visible minorities within a community. Law enforcement is currently investigating these hate crimes that seemed designed to inspire terror in the victims. Pat Robertson has voiced his bigotry and biases in the past, but this latest act of conspiracy with other discriminatory groups, to spread a message of fear and intolerance that may have resulted in acts of terror, may just be criminal.

As much as it pains any person with a modicum of independent, critical thinking skills to acknowledge it; Glenn Beck’s ‘Restoring Honor’ rally was a masterful exercise in political organizing. He promised a recipe for fundamental change to this country and he delivered. He delivered it right on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and no one even noticed. He presented a clear strategy for the undermining of the Constitutional foundation of this country and all anyone saw was a religious service.
