I'm very consciously about to break Godwin's Law here, but I think it's warranted: The rhetoric coming from the Republican party is so hateful that I nearly expect to hear someone propose a final solution to "the Muslim problem."

John Deady, the co-chair of New Hampshire Veterans for Rudy, is standing by the comments he made in the controversial interview with The Guardian we posted on below, in which he said that "the Muslims" need to be chased "back to their caves."

In an interview with me, Deady confirmed that when he made the comments, he was referring to all Muslims.

"I don't subscribe to the principle that there are good Muslims and bad Muslims," Deady told me by phone from his home in New Hampshire. "They're all Muslims."

But he was probably just taken out of context, right? Well...

In the earlier interview with The Guardian, Deady said of Muslims: "We need to keep the feet to the fire and keep pressing these people until we defeat or chase them back to their caves or in other words get rid of them."

Emphasis mine. Deady later clarified:
