Virginia's 5th Congressional District Represenative, Republican Virgil Goode, is the quintessential neonut bigot! His most recent attack on American values comes in the form of what is clearly his forté: Muslim Bashing.

Following the lead of soon-to-be ex-senator George Felix Macacawitz Allen (Racist-VA), Virginia 5th District Republican Congressbigot, Virgil Goode-for-nothing, has implicated his entire constituency with being xenophobic, uncultured, and hateful goode-for-nothings, which we know is not the case - at least for some.

Representative Goode angered several civil rights groups and many of his colleagues over the response he made to a few of his "concerned" supporters about the decision by Rep.-elect Keith Ellison of Minnesota, the first Muslim elected to Congress, to use the Quran when he is sworn in.

Goode's comments included:

"I will not be putting my hand on the Quran," he said at a news conference at the Franklin County Courthouse.

"One lady told me she thinks I'm doing the right thing on this; I wish more people would take a stand and stand up for the principles on which this country was founded."

" away with diversity visas which let in people not from European countries and some terrorist states."

In his response to his "concerned" citizens' inquiry, Goode stipulated that his proposed immigration policy is necessary "to preserve the values and beliefs traditional to the United States of America."

"The Muslim representative from Minnesota was elected by the voters of that district and if American citizens don't wake up and adopt the Virgil Goode position on immigration there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office and demanding the use of the Koran."

It is abundantly clear that Representative Goode-for-nothing would rather occupy his time trumpeting the do-nothing machinations of the Republican House of Representatives and devote our tax dollars to empty and meaningless resolutions like:

"The United States House of Representatives has gone on record as decrying the action of the city of St. Denis, France in naming a street in honor of Mumia Abu_Jamal, who murdered a police officer in the United States 25 years ago.

It was on the night of December 9, 1981 when officer Daniel Faulkner conducted a routine traffic stop in Philadelphia. Faulkner had observed a vehicle traveling the wrong way on a one-way street. As the officer was charging the car’s driver, the driver’s bother, identified as Abu-Jamal, approached on the other side of the street and shot officer Faulkner in the back. Faulkner fell but he was able to shoot Abu-Jamal once before Abu-Jamal pumped four more shots into the officer, killing him.

Abu-Jamal was convicted of first-degree murder and given the death penalty. Following a number of appeals, the death sentence was overturned, but the underlying conviction stands, and Abu-Jamla remains in prison.

Over the past quarter-century, the extreme left in France has taken the Abu-Jamal case as a cause celebre; Abu-Jamal is hailed as a political prisoner. In that light, on April 29, 2006, the municipal government of the Paris suburb of St. Denis dedicated a street in the honor of Abu_Jamal;

The resolution adopted by the House points out that the official recognition and celebration of a convicted murderer of a United States’ police officer is an affront to law enforcement officers across the nation. Consequently, the House concludes its resolution by condemning the murder of Philadelphia Police Officer Danny Faulkner and urging the municipal government of St. Denis to take immediate action to change the name of Rue Mumia Abu_Jamal. If such action is not taken by the municipal government of St. Denis, the House urges the Government of France to take appropriate action against the city of St. Denis to change the name of Rue Mumia Abu_Jamal

How out-of-touch can one possibly be? We have thousands of dead GIs in Iraq, hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqi women and children, and hundreds of billion$ pouring into overpriced defense contracts, and this is the best the likes of Virgil Goode can do? Moan over the naming of a street in France? I hope the RepuKKKes aren't wondering why they lost control of the House. I hope Representative Goode doesn't lament over the fact that his out-of-touch opinions will be pretty much silenced in the new House of Representatives come January 6th. Perhaps the fine citizens of the 5th Congressional district will give Goode his comeuppance he so deserves in 2008 and send him to join his good friend and fellow bigot, Macacawitz Allen in the "annuls" of Virginia history.

I encourage anyone willing to type an e-mail, especially if you're a voter in Virginia's 5th Congressional District, to send this low-life bigot as many e-mails as you can send - being professional, of course - and let him know that America values tolerance ahead of his low-rent religious bigotry. - Write the bastard using his official e-mail.

Virginia's 5th Congressional District includes Lynchburg - American Taliban founder and co-director (with Pitchfork Pat Robertson) Jerry Falwell. Imagine that!

For you neonuts who will surely comment on this post, treat yourself to a little enlightenment and read up on the Abilene Paradigm - it might explain how the GOP has evolved into the group-moron it has become.

Damn, and I spent all those years in Charlottesville thinking cow-tipping was the most prevalent extra-curricular activity amongst morons in the Piedmont region of Virginia. I was wrong.
