In the ongoing debate over whether teabaggers and wingnuts are liars or idiots, there's some new evidence the points decidedly toward idiocy. "Ground Zero Mosque" opponents have launched a Facebook boycott of all things Justin Bieber after hearing that the teen pop sensation had come out in favor of the proposed NYC mosque. Only problem is, the "story" was "reported" on an Internet parody site. The alleged Tiger Beat interview that duped the rubes reads, in part:
Muslims should be allowed to build a mosque anywhere they want,” the singer said. “Coming from Canada, I’m not used to this level of intolerance, eh.”
Bieber went on to say that Muslims are “super cool,” Christians are “lame-o-rama,” and that the mosque will help “start a dialogue” with all religions about which Justin Bieber song is the most awesome.
Yeah, that's plausible. The idiot who created the FB page has since taken down the Bieber references, though the page is no less idiotic and you can still find plenty of ridicule heaped upon him there (along with a classic photo of the head wingnut wearing a red, white and blue hard hat).
Here's a screen grab showing what the page had looked like when they all thought Justin Bieber was a Muslim-loving, terrorist-sympathizing, 16-year-old singer of shitty pop songs.
