You’ve probably never heard of them, but that’s not because they are laying low.
A Conservative group called “Family Security Matters” is suddenly running around the Internet trying to wipe clean all traces of comments made by them on their own website after a slew of negative publicity.

FSM’s Board of Directors includes some well recognized Conservative voices, such as Laura Ingraham, Barbara Comstock, Monica Crowley, Frank Gaffney and James Woolsey among others. These people… seriously… believe that the Islamic world wants to conquer the United States and convert us all to Islam. And why not? After all, wasn’t it Ann Coulter who said “We should bomb them and convert them to Christianity”? Conservatives believe that the rest of the world wants to do to us what they want to do to everyone else. Theses people hate Democracy, ADORE George W. Bush, and would like to see him seize power and declare himself “President for Life”. You think I’m kidding?

Here is some of what once appeared… now disappeared… on the “Family Security Matters” website (some of which can still be pulled out of Google’s cache – I’ve highlighted a few key lines for you):

Some of those quotes I’ve highlighted:

“The wisest course would have been for President Bush to use his nuclear weapons to slaughter Iraqis until they complied with his demands, or until they were all dead.”

The simple truth that modern weapons now mean a nation must practice genocide or commit suicide.

And just below the highlighted sections:

“If President Bush copied Julius Caesar by ordering his army to empty Iraq of Arabs and repopulate the country with Americans, he would achieve immediate results:…”

As insane as it all sounds, these people aren’t joking. This isn’t a parody website and the comments are not being said “tongue-in-cheek”. If you’ve taken a moment to click some of the links above, you’ve seen that these are the same thoughts they are expresing acrossing the mainstream media and even on their own shows (if they happen to host one). If these were Democrats saying this… what do you think the media’s reaction would be?

And these views, though obviously outrageous to the sane among us, are NOT rare among the Neocons now running the Republican Party. In fact, it is quickly becoming the mainstream. The U.S. is at war. Christianity is “under attack”.

Be afraid, folks. Be very afraid.
