Congressman Virgil Goode is getting treatment straight out of the CAIR playbook:
|Step 1:||Official spokesman denounces the offender as a bigot and racist. Asserts that Muslims are just like other Americans, want to live in peace and enjoy the respect and tolerance that is their right etc blah yak.|
|Step 2:||Prominent non-Muslims fall over themselves to pile on the offending infidel along with CAIR.|
|Step 3:||If enough useful idiots don’t show up for step 2, twist some arms and call in favors until enough join the pile-on.|
|Step 4:||Saturate the airwaves with the CAIR message, as delivered by the usual reasonable-sounding talking heads.|
|Step 5:||Mau-mau the offender. This step includes veiled threats, overt threats, sabotage of the offender’s funding sources (if he’s in public office) or his employer (if he’s not), and any dirty tricks that might prove useful.|
|Step 6:||Repeat steps 1 through 5 until the victim is reduced to a smoking politically correct crater.|
We saw steps 1 through 4 in action yesterday and the day before. Today it’s time for Step 5. According to The Martinsville Bulletin:
Franklin County Sheriff Quint Overton said he had extra officers at the courthouse Thursday because Goode had received several threatening phone calls.
Asked at the press conference whether he had received any death threats, Goode responded, “No comment.”
So now it’s started.
Read the rest of the article — it’s an AP story, so you’ll find all the other steps highlighted, with the general MSM stance clearly laid out, in full Useful Idiot mode.

Rep. Goode may not stand a chance, but we’re going to back him to the hilt here. The man has touched the new third rail of American politics: He dissed the Prophet.
Regular readers will guess that we don’t support the exact way that our congressman stated his opinion, but we wholeheartedly back the sentiment behind it. And if we get a chance to talk to him, we’ll offer him some advice about how to wage the Counterjihad effectively, without offering the enemy any gaps in the armor through which he can slip a blade.
I spoke to one of Rep. Goode’s staffers in a satellite office this morning, and he said the phones have been ringing constantly, and that’s he’s never seen anything like it before.
Don’t let CAIR force him to back down. If they succeed, no politician holding national office will be willing to stand up to them.
