Patriots far and wide have been cheering like folks at a buffet when a new trough of baked beans has been served by the news that Hot Springs shooting range owner Jan Morgan has declared her business to be a “Muslim free Zone.”
On her website, in her piece “Why I Want My Range to be a Muslim Free Zone” - http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:-vOg-nXmaJYJ:janmorganmedia.com/2014/09/business-muslim-free-zone/+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&client=firefox-a - Morgan lists her reasons, which include:
Like so many non-Muslims, she claims to have read the Koran, understands it, and is familiar with the verses which command Muslims to do terrible things to those of us who refuse to “submit” or convert to Islam.
That means you, friends of ours who happen to be Muslim. She knows you better than we do, or even better than you do yourselves.
Her life has been threatened “repeatedly” by Muslims because of her publication of those verses - even though every redneck with a keyboard seems to post them on Facebook every half hour.
Muslims who belong to terrorist groups such as ISIS or AL Qaeda threaten to kill innocent Americans.
“See a common thread here?” Morgan asks on her page.
Christian Reconstructionists also have dire plans in mind for those who do not convert to their bizarre brand of Christianity.
Many of them have joined Militia groups.
Many of them have killed innocent Americans, including law enforcement officers; might Christians be banned from her establishment?
Don’t be silly.
Another example of her paranoid style:
“Two men walked in to my range last week with allah akbar ring tone and message alert tones on their smart phones. They spoke very little english, one did not have proof of U.S. citizenship, yet they wanted to rent and shoot guns. They were constantly glancing toward the cameras in the range, then looking at each other and speaking in their own language.
“Their behavior was so strange, it frightened my patrons. No one would enter the range to shoot while they were there. Some of my customers left. I lost business and the people who remained at my facility said they did so out of fear for my safety.”
Yup - people with guns were frightened.
Well, just one quick question for the Jan Morgans of the world, and, by extension, the yahoos who are cheering her on:
How can you tell if your customer if some dangerous terrorist type - you know, one of them Muslim fellers, if they don’t actually come in in and say, “Hey, lady, we need some small arms training before our flight leaves for - OOPS, better not tell ya!”
No Muslims allowed? Really? How can you tell? Do you expect them to walk in dressed like Sean Connery from The Wind and the Lion? In a world where an Israeli Mossad agent on NCIS was played by a woman from South America, Indians in Westerns have traditionally been played by Italians and Mexicans, how can you identify someone as a Muslim, if they don't want you to know? We have yahoos in this country who honestly can't tell the difference between Hispanics and folks from the Middle East. This sort of policy only appeals to bigots on Facebook, and right-wing radio talk show hosts.
