Soon we’ll find out whether Rep. Sue Myrick needs a Weatherman to know which way the wind blows. Myrick’s longtime chief of staff, Hal Weatherman, is leaving to become communications and marketing director for Act! For America, a radical Islamophobic group in Pensacola, Fla. AFA is led by one Brigitte Gabriel, who grew up in Lebanon, and gained notoriety for supporting the South Lebanon Army, which was responsible for the 1982 Sabra and Shatila massacres, in which around 2,000 Palestinian refugees, mostly women and children, were killed. This isn’t the first time someone in Myrick’s milieu has cooperated with loons. Myrick, remember, wrote the introduction to an anti-Muslim book written by David Gaubatz, who refers to Pres. Obama as "our Muslim leader" and a "crack-head."
Myrick, as you know if you read this blog, has spent the better part of the past couple of years going wild-eyed crazy over the supposed severe, immediate threat of Muslim terrorists in America. Weatherman, who is apparently just as caught up in the thrill of walking around scared all the time as Myrick, is throwing his lot in with a group that will allow him to do just that.
The central question for Charlotteans is, “Will Sue be able to calm the hell down now?” Don’t count on it. As we’ve written before, “Too often, (Myrick) has seemed to almost need to be riled up or panicky about something. If it's not teenagers being ruined by 'Satanic' heavy metal music during her City Council days, it's the evil of traffic problems. If it's not civilization-destroying traffic, it's coffeepots talking to her. If it's not Mr. Coffee coming to life, it's illegal immigrants wrecking American culture. And now, it’s Muslims right here in America — getting ready to kill you in your sleep!! So, the answer to our opening question is, the Weatherman may be leaving, but Sue will figure out which way the next evil wind that wants to destroy everything that’s wonderful about Christian America is blowing. She’s had a lot of practice.
