Hating is OK

 Attacking Muslims Is In Vogue Again Among Conservatives

…Glenn Beck has decided that he cannot tolerate the thought of American Muslims riding around on rollercoasters for fun! This is what Beck bleated out to the world, via email:

At the very minimum this is one of the worst PR moves of all time. A Six Flags amusement park is having a ‘Muslim Family Day’ which if that’s what they want to do, great! BUT they’ve decided to have the festivities on September 12th – of ALL days, THIS is the one they pick? What in the world were they thinking?

Hint: They were probably thinking that a Sunday in September might be a nice time for Muslim families to enjoy themselves at an amusement park?

Well, I can’t imagine anyone having a “day” of any kind at a water park in December, can you? But I digress. Yes, Japan attacked the United States in 1941 and for a period of time, we kinda sorta lost our minds a little bit with regard to the Japanese-Americans who were attacked that day by another country. But by 1948, the internment camps had been closed for three years and the war had been won.

PS — here’s the history of the event that Beck is suddenly so upset about (it just happens to coincide with his day to party down with his wackadoodle teabaggers):  it was first held at Six Flags Great Adventure, NJ, in September 2000. The event was immediately a huge success. The tragic events of 9/11 that resulted in the loss of thousands of innocent lives, also affected this event directly. The chief organizer, Tariq Amanullah, who worked on the 96th floor of WTC, Tower 2, passed away. The team was unable to come together again till year 2004, when the event came back bigger than ever before.
