Drunk, anti-Muslim bigot gets butt kicked

Posted By on Fri, Sep 3, 2010 at 12:21 PM

If you’re of the progressive sort with a kinda dark sense of humor, here’s a little something to get your Labor Day weekend off to a good start. Anti-Muslim fever, as you know, is being stoked across the country by the likes of Gingrich and Limbaugh, but it was just a matter of time before some bigot’s hatred backfired on him. Specifically, it’s probably not a good idea to mix alcohol and right-wing talk radio.

The New Haven Register reports that last Thursday, Kevin Morris, 31 and really drunk, came barreling into a West Haven, Conn. hookah lounge, which he apparently thought was a Muslim-run business rather than a hipster refuge, and began shouting profanities and racial and religious insults at customers, including black and Arabic people. Morris may have been confused about what a hookah lounge is, but, as TalkingPointsMemo writes, “One thing is clear: it ain't a mosque.”

Sure enough, after Morris the Drunken Bigot had insulted everyone in the place and grabbed the bartender by the throat, outraged customers gathered 'round and proceeded to beat the shit out of the guy. As the Register reports, when police got there, Morris “was bleeding profusely from the face." He was treated at a hospital and is still in police custody, charged with intimidation due to bias and breach of peace. Peace and love, everybody (wink, wink). Peace and love, and have a great holiday.
