Philly Blogger Learns a Lesson or Two on Rhetoric, Islam and Politics
by Randy LoBasso
Ever wonder what happens when reactionary extremist rhetoric blows up in everyone's faces? Aaron Proctor could probably tell you a thing or two about that. Last month, the 29-year-old blogger took to his page on Examiner.com and accused the Council on American-Islamic Relations of being nothing but a bunch of terrorists: "CAIR is an Islamic group that forwards the false belief that Islam is a religion of peace when it is simply a terroristic world-dominating political movement and not a religion at all," the Philly resident wrote.
And then he called out a politician, Republican Rep. Pat Meehan, whose 7th District covers Delaware and Montgomery counties. You see, CAIR's Philly chapter is having its annual banquet in Delaware County this weekend, so naturally Proctor wanted to know Meehan's thoughts. Specifically, if he was "with us or against us."
