Michigan prof: Islamophobia, right-wing Jews inspired Charleston shooting

Dr. Juan Cole, a professor of history at the University of Michigan, thinks that Islamophobia and right-wing Jews inspired Dylann Roof in the recent Charleston church massacre.

In his blog “Informed Comment,” Cole argues that “far right wing Jews” like Daniel Pipes and Pamela Geller, French politician Marine LePen and Dutch politician Geert Wilders, and “the whole Islamophobic Network” were “a key influence” in suspect Dylann Roof’s mass shooting of nine people in a black Christian church in Charleston, SC on June 17.

    Of course, the Jooooos. Now why didn’t I think of that? If only Israel would return to the pre-1967 borders, this terrible tragedy would never have happened.

    To paraphrase Orwell, there are some ideas so stupid that only intellectuals will believe them.

      And then beyond that, the writings of Prof Cole.

    Using his logic, I blame Juan Cole for the Fort Hood massacre.

    I also have a fecal rumination to share with you all. IMO, Juan Cole is an intellectual turd of ginormous proportions.
