Nashville To Host Islamophobes

Nashville To Host Islamophobes

By SOP newswire2

Perhaps motivated by recent news that Tennessee has become a stronghold for radical Islamic forces, leading Islamophobes from around the world will be gathering in Nashville at the Loews Vanderbilt Plaza Hotel May 29-30 for "Understanding the Jihad in Israel, Europe and America," the first annual symposium presented by the online pub New English Review.

What is the New English Review, you ask? I`m still scratching my head on that one, too. There`s no discernible mission statement or "about us" page, though there are individual bios of the various editors, publishers and contributors. A brief stroll through NER`s current featured headlines reveals heady, reasonably well-written stories reflecting a nonetheless kooky, far-right stance. Think of it as The New Yorker for the Teabagger set. (Or is it the "Tea Bagger set"? For the sake of beleaguered copy editors everywhere, AP Style better settle this issue soon.)

And therein lies the thematic thread running through NER: Islam is an inherently sinister religion, and it`s coming to gitcha! It`s all there in the Koran, people! This has nothing to do with complex geopolitical situations, poverty or extremism, folks. The problem is simply that Islam and its Koran are inherently evil, according to the folks at NER. (I wonder if they`ve read our "holy book" lately--some of the stuff in there is pretty ****** crazy too, no? Not to mention our beloved Rummy`s use of Christian scripture to promote the war in Iraq.)

That`s why you need to sign up right now for "Understanding the Jihad in Israel, Europe and America"! Don`t delay--the future of white people everywhere depends on you! Registration deadline is May 25!
