Anti-Muslim hate at McCain rally

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/anti_muslim_hate_at_mccain_rally_20081020/

This video, from the American News Project, shows an Islamophobe attacking Muslim supporters of John McCain:

At a John McCain rally in Woodbridge, Virginia, three people handed out “Obama for Change” bumper stickers with the Communist sickle and hammer and the Islamic crescent, saying Obama was a socialist with ties to radical Islam. Several moderate McCain supporters, Muslim and Christian alike, struck back - relentlessly bombarding the group distributing the flyers until they left the premises.

This video is certainly offensive. But it is more limited in its scope—because it’s only one hater—from the Ohio voters who called Barack Obama a terrorist and the n-word.

Steve Garfield says that after Rick Sanchez aired this video on CNN, the McCain campaign forbid staff David Zuberi from speaking with him.
