Idiot right-wingers fall for Bieber satire

It's gonna be a big year, folks, when the first story of the year is something as uproariously stupid as this.

Because the Republicans hate Muslims, they planned to base their 2010 campaign on opposing Park51. Most Republicans abandoned this issue though when they realized that most folks believe Muslims have a right to build their community center.

But some of the right-wing brain trust still hasn't learned, and they're so wrapped up in knee-jerk hatred that they'll fall for anything that fans it.

Take Park51 opponent Andy Sullivan, for instance. Sullivan has frequently been interviewed on TV about his Hard Hat Pledge - in which he tries to get construction workers to promise not to do any work for Park51.

Sullivan is now leading a boycott of Canadian singer Justin Bieber. He cites an interview in which the singer apparently declared, "Muslims should be allowed to build a mosque anywhere they want." The Facebook page for Sullivan's Bieber boycott now has about 500 followers. Sullivan said, "My little girl took down his poster and said she didn't want to have nothing to do with him anymore. These are my kids. They're living this thing."

It would be idiotic enough to boycott a singer because he supports building Park51. But it turns out the interview of Bieber isn't even real! It was just a satire published on some website. Anybody who read the actual interview could see it was just satirical.

Unless of course they're an idiot. But to keep supporting the Republicans in 2011, you'd almost have to be one anyway.

Meanwhile, the media has refused to promote a boycott of Pink even after she endorsed child abuse.
