Mainstreaming Hatemongers - Updated

WTH is the tradmed thinking? Hatemongering wingnut Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs, who is so crazy that she makes Michelle Malkin and Atilla the Hun look moderate, is being given a microphone to broadcast her anti-Islam bashing by the major TV networks. MSNBC, CNN, NBC Nightly News and of course Fox are presenting her as an expert qualified to speak on policy.

Apparently, this is because she's the leader of a group called Stop Islamization of America. She describes it's mission "as being based on the beliefs that 'Islam should be westernized, that America should not be Islamisized. We don't believe in Mosque-ing the workplace. We don't believe in introducing Muslim prayer into public schools.'"

Not that any of that is actually happening but that's the sanest stuff she says. For just a small slice of her really crazy spewings, check the link. It becomes clearer every day that the media is a bigger perp than the far right in fostering the insanity currently consuming our society.

Update: Well MSNBC apparently figured out this was a bad idea. They cancelled her Hardball appearance.
