imageThe Wall Street Journal runs an opinion piece declaring that Obama should embrace his Muslim heritage.

I’m kind of conflicted about this. On the one hand, Obama should embrace the Muslim community and make clear that the smear here is his alleged dishonesty rather than his alleged faith in Islam. On the other hand, you’d have to be a complete fucking idiot to believe that this is why the WSJ Muslim published Obama this Jim Henson’s Allah Babies piece.

I decided to look into Mr. Afeef’s background, and immediately stumbled on this piece advocating large-scale bans on public gun ownership as a means of fighting the war on terror. Now, maybe something’s changed, drastically, in the past day or so, but can you remember the last time the Wall Street Journal gave space on the most conservative major opinion page in the country to an anti-gun Muslim giving advice to a major Democratic candidate?
