Wing-Nut Blames Von Brunn on Muslims

My own instinct is to resist the urge to blame James von Brunn's attack on the Holocaust Museum on the right-wing media.

But it's not like the right is trying to avoid being stupid.

Here's Debbie Schlussel blaming Muslims for Von Brunn's attack.
In fact, it is because of Muslims--who are the biggest contributor to the worldwide rise in anti-Semitism to Holocaust-eve levels--that neo-Nazis feel comfortable--far more comfortable!--manifesting their views about Jews. Until 9/11 and our resulting new tolerance for Islam, the neo-Nazi types were marginalized and howling at the wind. We know who has been targeting Jewish museums and centers affiliated with Jews in recent years. And it hasn't been, in general, 89-year-old White guys.

Ugly stuff. Schlussel makes every Muslim in the world into an Islamist extremist. She might as well say that every guy with a German sounding name is a Nazi.
