Raging politicians and their fanatic followers love to throw around the term radical Islam.
Then what do you call a group of protesters, many carrying long guns, who show up outside a place of worship to stop the “Islamization of America”?
The Dallas Morning News reports that was the scene outside the Islamic Center of Irving where about a dozen protestors rallied as members of the mosque worshiped inside.
Some demonstrators mocked Arabic, choosing to speak in gibberish as Arabic music could be heard from passing vehicles leaving the mosque.
What a waste of time. What did they hope to accomplish other than to intimidate and harass a group of law abiding citizens?
Even if they felt their protest might accomplish something, what was the point of bringing guns along and prominently displaying them?
In these days of mass shootings, the scene was downright scary.
“They’re mostly for self-defense or protection,” protester David Wright said about his 12-gauge and other guns. “But I’m not going to lie. We do want to show force. … It would be ridiculous to protest Islam without defending ourselves.”
Fortunately the protest ended without incident.
