Gen. George Casey is warning against anti-Muslim backlash in the wake of last week’s shooting at Fort Hood. CBN’s chief Islam, fascism and string bean casserole expert Pat Robertson objects to the idea of treating Muslim Americans with respect.
“Worry about backlash, but the truth is [Hasan] was off his trolley, and they should have gotten him out, but nobody wanted to go after him because of political correctness. We just don’t talk about somebody’s, quote, religion, even if their religion involves beheading infidels and pouring boiling oil down their throats. … [Islam] is not a religion; it’s a political system, and I think we ought to treat its adherents such as we would treat members of the Communist Party or of some fascist group.”

And Robertson is, naturally, not alone: Bill Kristol suggests that Gen. Casey is suppressing the real point of the Fort Hood shootings.
