In the above video, Chris Hayes, guest hosting for Rachel Maddow on her show, lays out the ways in which Republican politicians are using Islam as a wedge issue in the current election campaign. In the aftermath of 9/11, ex-President George W. Bush made a huge point of stressing that Muslims were not the enemy. Apparently his political decedents have decided he was wrong.
This video is the entire clip, and aside from praising Bush, the guest also pushes back, suggesting that in 24 hours she could dig up equivalent anti-Islamic things said by Democrats (good luck with that). I include the entire clip for a simple reason: It’s far more in-depth, fair and balanced than anything one could ever see on Fox Noise.
