No crescents please, we're American
How many rightwing bullies does it take to change the design of a 9/11 memorial? Apparently just one. As Tai noted in The Mix yesterday, Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo) is little upset because the Flight 93 National Memorial is crescent-shaped, "because of the crescent's prominent use as a symbol in Islam - and the fact that the hijackers were radical Islamists." More alarming however is the readiness on part of reasonable men and women to submit to such foolishness. On Wednesday, the architect, Paul Murdoch, offered to change the shape of the memorial to satisfy the critics. Michelle Malkin has declared victory for like-minded paranoids, and down the slippery slope we go. [LINK]
P.S.: Tancredo is also expected to introduce a new bill in Congress that bans the moon from appearing in American skies on certain days of the month.
