Terry Jones 2012: Pastor Who Burned Quran Running For President

Terry Jones 2012: Pastor Who Burned Quran Running For President

Remember Terry Jones, the mustachioed clown of a pastor who created a furor over burning copies of the Quran?  Mr. Jones has decided to throw his hat into the ring and run for President of the United States.  He will be running as a Republican (surprise, surprise) and laid out a seven point plan, which includes deporting 20 million illegal aliens.

Here is a report from the Huffington Post:

Many have scoffed at his announcement, but is he any less absurd a candidate than many other GOP contenders who are running on the anti-Muslim platform?  The Republican party is full of candidates trying to use Islamophobic rhetoric to woo right-wing voters.  These include hopefuls like Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, and Herman Cain.  This article by Sheila Musaji on The American Muslim, entitled The GOP Has Declared War on American Muslims, is worth reading.

Maybe Herman Cain can run Terry Jones as his vice president.  Then, they can offer a great deal on burning Qurans: burn the first Quran for $9.99, next Quran is on us!

Certainly, Terry Jones’ seven point proposal is more reasonable than Herman Cain’s 9/9/9 pizza plan.  In fact, one of Terry Jones’ seven points is to reduce military spending.  Number three in his seven point plan is:

Reduce military spending: All military on foreign soil should be brought back immediately and all future involvement of military on foreign soil should not be engaged until our country has become economically strong again. The security of our nation must be reexamined and our military spending must be cut by several billion dollars.

Is it possible that a right-wing uber-Islamophobe just said something more reasonable about foreign policy than most of the rest of the candidates, including Barack Obama himself?


  1. Another IDIOT! I guess this year has been the year of Idiots!

  2. No one will ever vote for him.

  3. The creep, his Koran burning action was a preparation for his nomination procedure. What a St***d cheap person! YUUUK

  4. One thing that can be said for Terry Jones is that he is one of the few people in America that will NOT be bullied and intimidated by muslims when it comes to his right to free speech. He is one of the few non-muslims with the courage to stand by his convictions and stand up to bullies. For that, I applaud him.

  5. For the people who would vote for him if this guy did become president how does he think he could get any type of help from Muslims countries when the president of the US burned the scriptures of the religion they practice.

  6. Anonymous,
    I suppose you approve of a person who fights Islam without even bothering to read the Quran. Not like he would understand it if he read it. These are the perfect examples of people who do not want peace. Sure he can blab all he wants..its freedom of speech. Muslims still have their freedom of religion. So if you want to favor this guy (freedom of speech over freedom of religion), why not demonstrate how violent Islam is by quoting more verses of the Quran? Hmm, I’m sure you have been trained like a parrot by Pamella Geller and Robert Spencer to repeat the same verses over and over again. What’s stopping you? Scared of knowing the truth? Or do you just like hiding it under the bed?

  7. “there is no complusion in religion.” how many times can that be parroted?


    Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57:

    Narrated ‘Ikrima:

    Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to ‘Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn ‘Abbas who said, “If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah’s Apostle forbade it, saying, ‘Do not punish anybody with Allah’s punishment (fire).’ I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'”

    Volume 9, Book 84, Number 58:

    Narrated Abu Burda:

    Abu Musa said, “I came to the Prophet along with two men (from the tribe) of Ash’ariyin, one on my right and the other on my left, while Allah’s Apostle was brushing his teeth (with a Siwak), and both men asked him for some employment. The Prophet said, ‘O Abu Musa (O ‘Abdullah bin Qais!).’ I said, ‘By Him Who sent you with the Truth, these two men did not tell me what was in their hearts and I did not feel (realize) that they were seeking employment.’ As if I were looking now at his Siwak being drawn to a corner under his lips, and he said, ‘We never (or, we do not) appoint for our affairs anyone who seeks to be employed. But O Abu Musa! (or ‘Abdullah bin Qais!) Go to Yemen.'” The Prophet then sent Mu’adh bin Jabal after him and when Mu’adh reached him, he spread out a cushion for him and requested him to get down (and sit on the cushion). Behold: There was a fettered man beside Abu Muisa. Mu’adh asked, “Who is this (man)?” Abu Muisa said, “He was a Jew and became a Muslim and then reverted back to Judaism.” Then Abu Muisa requested Mu’adh to sit down but Mu’adh said, “I will not sit down till he has been killed. This is the judgment of Allah and His Apostle (for such cases) and repeated it thrice. Then Abu Musa ordered that the man be killed, and he was killed. Abu Musa added, “Then we discussed the night prayers and one of us said, ‘I pray and sleep, and I hope that Allah will reward me for my sleep as well as for my prayers.'”

    Volume 9, Book 84, Number 64:

    Narrated ‘Ali:

    Whenever I tell you a narration from Allah’s Apostle, by Allah, I would rather fall down from the sky than ascribe a false statement to him, but if I tell you something between me and you (not a Hadith) then it was indeed a trick (i.e., I may say things just to cheat my enemy). No doubt I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “During the last days there will appear some young foolish people who will say the best words but their faith will not go beyond their throats (i.e. they will have no faith) and will go out from (leave) their religion as an arrow goes out of the game. So, where-ever you find them, kill them, for who-ever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection.”

    m. bennett,

    i have no faith. will you kill me? come claim your “reward”.

    my name is michael joseph malzahn, i live at 2211 3rd av. n. st. petersburg fl, 33713

    peace brother. or not, it’s your choice. may allah guide you, just kidding, may reason and logic guide you.

  8. I have been to St. Petersburg a few times it seems like it would be a nice place to live.

  9. Please sign my petition to have an ignorant bigot removed from the teaching staff of Purdue Calumet.

  10. […] Will be running for President in 2012 […]
