Religious Right Fanatics Harass Muslim Man in Silent Prayer

TPM's Ryan Reilly reports that the ludicrous "pro-sharia" rally at the White House that Fox "News" has been pimping of late never happened. But a planned counter-rally did take place, and as it was breaking up a Muslim man showed up to pray in front of the White House. According to Reilly, "He was quickly surrounded by a large group of protestors who shouted an array of insults at him: mocking him for drinking Starbucks coffee, telling him to go back to his country and even throwing tiny crosses at his feet as he prayed."

A cop told Reilly that the man shows up every few days to pray silently.

Here's some disturbing video of the incident:

And here's another video, taken at a dinner held for an American Muslim organization where a bunch of Tea Party lunatics hurled epithets at the attendees. Notice the shouts of "U! S! A!" and "Go back home!" These pathetic excuses for human beings don't seem to grasp that they're screaming this at American citizens of a different faith.

They personify the word "unAmerican."
