6 Right-Wing Lunacies This Week: Rupert Murdoch's Post-Hebdo Advice Is 'Just Stop Being Muslim'

Plus Phyllis Schlafly's crazy campus rape solution.

1. Rupert Murdoch: Basically, just don’t be Muslim.

Fox, O’Reilly, CNN and right-wingers of all kinds have been harping away at the Muslim community all week about the need for moderate Muslims the world over to condemn the Charlie Hebdo attack and subsequent violence in Paris. Many Muslims and their leaders have done just that, although Fox can’t seem to locate these numerous condemnations. Bill Maher grudgingly seemed to make some distinction between more moderate and extremist Muslims on Friday night, though he still refers to the “Muslim world” as a single block of identically-minded, violent people. But Rupert Murdoch does them all one better. Blame moderate Muslims, even if they condemn extremist jihadis.

On Friday evening, the News Corp CEO took to Twitter to express his feelings that all Muslim people, even the peaceful ones, “should be held responsible” for “their growing jihadist cancer.”

It seems there is only one solution: Don’t be Muslim. Just stop being Muslim. But that is probably not enough. Stop being from the Muslim part of the world. You can’t expect us to be able to tell who is Muslim and who is not.

This tragedy, Schlafly suggests, is causing those outnumbered men to rape women. There are just so darn many of them, why the heck not rape a few? Boys know there are more women than men because they are better at math than girls are. “Boys are more likely than girls to look at the cost-benefit …read more
