Under the heading of lies and the lying liars who help spread them, a number of right-wing freaks and villains are spreading a series of vile lies about Harold Koh, Yale Law School Dean and yet-to-be-confirmed Obama appointee.
Koh is a highly respected and utterly mainstream figure who the right-wing echo chamber is now accusing of wanting to apply Sharia law in US courts. It’s really ugly stuff and deserves some strong push back. Dahlia has the details.
And as long as we’re on the subject, isn’t it weird how Republicans can’t be out of power for more than a couple months without lacing their political oppositions with hints and vocabulary of armed violence and revolution? I thought so too.
