By stating that the Obama administration is waging a "jihad against Arizona," Pearce is clearly equating President Obama to Muslims (aka in his eyes: un-American, a terrorist, and foreign).
The way this article reports on this rally and Pearce's ridiculous statement in no way asks Pearce what he meant by "jihad."
The only newsworthy part of this is how he erroneously implied that Obama is sympathetic toward the Muslim faith over... what, Arizona politics? I don't see any connection at all, and THAT is what should be focused on here.
Instead, we get a one-sided article telling us what he said and how people loved it.
Is Mr. Cohn sympathetic toward the Tea Party so much that he refuses to do his job as a journalist?
Why was the term for "a Muslim internal struggle to maintain faith" or "the Muslim struggle in a holy war" even brought up here?
We don't get any answers at all. Sep 21, 2010
