Not-so-hopeful sign: Troubled preacher of hate to speak to NC tea party group
Wow! Some of this stuff never ceases to amaze. According to the Carteret County News-Times, a group calling itself the “Crystal Coast Tea Party” will play host this evening to one of the country’s more seriously troubled public figures. The guy’s name is Rev. Terry Jones.
Jones, as you will recall, is a Florida-based “pastor” who quite arguably caused the deaths of a number of Afghans by threatening to burn copies of the Qur’an a while back. Jones’ threat led to violent protests in Afghanistan at which multiple people were killed. Later, Jones actually burned some of the books.
Now, Jones is running for President. You can click here to check out his “campaign” website.
A post on Blue NC implies that some caring and thinking folks will actually be in Morehead City tonight to protest the event. This may be a bit of overkill for such a complete buffoon, but best wishes nonetheless.
