Charles Johnson's 'Peace Train' to Islamofascism — UPDATED!!

UPDATE: Don't miss Aaron Worthing's brilliant post this morning, "Charles Johnson Shreds the Last of his Credibility Discussing the Stewart Rally."


A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, Charles Johnson wrote what may have been the authoritative anti-jihad post on Cat Stevens, a.k.a. Yusuf Islam: "Are You Ready for Islamopop?" (safe link).


And now?

Well, the dude live-streamed Stewart/Colbert's lefty-lovefest, "
Live Video: Rally to Restore Sanity And/or Fear" (safe link).


Yep. King Charles himself now leads the Islamofascist fifth column.

RELATED: Ed Driscoll, "
Video: Riding the Peace Train." And at Toby Harden, "Yusuf Islam (aka Cat Stevens), accused of backing Salman Rushdie fatwah, appears at DC 'Rally to Restore Sanity'."

And Doug Mataconis adds:
Some, such as Talking Points Memo, have already dismissed this criticism of Islam’s appearance at the rally as a “right wing” concern, but there does seem to be somewhat of a disconnect between a rally calling for rationality in political discourse and a singer who once endorsed the idea of murdering someone for writing a book. Inviting a man like this to a rally to “restore sanity” was a mistake, and Stewart is likely to take some well-deserved criticism for it over the coming days.

Chucky to send that post down the memory hole in 3....2...1....

I'm linking this post for my Sunday Patriotic Pinup Post, I bet Chuck's post is gone by the time I post it Sunday at 10am.

btw there are updates to my original post, including statements from Yusuf Islam as late as 2007 saying, paraphrase, "I am not in favor of murdering blasphemers. they should instead be executed following a fair trial." Which is so much more civilized.

hey, since i last commented here, i have added two more posts on the rushdie controversy, where we get two quotes from rushdie on the matter.

personally in those shoes, i would called Stewart a d--k.


Thanks for your kind words.
