Glenn Beck-Style Sophistry Explained, in One Link

Beck’s “news” site, TheBlaze, links from this inflammatory title:

AS HEARD ON BECK RADIO: MUSLIMS PLAN THURSDAY SHARIA LAW RALLY IN DC

Click to enlarge.

To this:

This coming Fourth of July, Muslims are planning a “Million Muslim March” in D.C. to “re-establish the feelings of brother and sisterhood among Muslim Americans” and start the “healing” process after 9/11. And while there is no indication that rally will dabble in Sharia law, a different D.C. march scheduled for Thursday boldly declares its goal of bringing Sharia law “directly to the doorsteps of the United States of America.”

Take one example of a fringe group and, by association, link to and tar all Muslims. And so a peaceful march of solidarity becomes, magically, about Shar’ia.
