The Islamic State of South Carolina

The manufactured breathless "controversy" about the crescent-shaped Flight 93 memorial (which I wrote about here) continues. 

Liberal Avenger, who graciously linked to me, is on the case.  Read his post, and pay particular attention to the moonbats his comments section.  They’re going ballistic.

The funny think about the right wing here is that they apparently "see" Islam embopied in a simple arc shape, whereas most of us "see" just an arc shape.  It says more about their frame of mind than it does about the memorial planning committee.

This isn’t the first time that the "seeing is believing" right wing sees what they want to believe.  It reminds me when they "saw" Terri Schiavo in the (heavily edited) videos, laughing, singing, playing piano, etc.  They see what they want to see, which is why progressive bloggers have the undisputed claim on being the "reality-based community".

More humorously, the myopia of the right has left them open to ridicule.  For example, some bright individual pointed out that the flag of South Carolina looks like this:


Not to mention the "red crescent" that is the logo of . . . wait for it . . . the Christian Coalition of America.

As someone once said somewhere, "Heh".
