WATCH: McCain Angrily Teaches Fox & Friends About Islam

One of the most enduring (and offensive) myths about Islam — that Muslims worship “a different God” from people of other religions — was finally vociferously challenged on Fox & Friends.

By a conservative.

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) appeared on the morning zoo to discuss the situation in Syria, when a video clip of a rebel fighter saying “Allahu Akbar!” was shown. F&F co-buffoon Brian Kilmeade started spouting his trademark ignorance, exclaiming, “I have a problem helping those people screaming that after a hit!” The swift — and stern — response from the senator clearly wasn’t what the Fox puppet expected:

You have a problem with that? Would you have a problem with an American Christian saying ‘thank God, thank God’? That’s what they’re saying. Come on. Of course they’re Muslims, but they’re moderates and I guarantee you that they are moderates. I know them and I’ve been with them. For someone to say ‘Allahu Akbar’ is about as offensive as someone saying ‘thank God.’

As any marginally educated adult knows, “Allah” is simply the Arabic word for God. If you can comprehend that concept when it comes to the word “Yahweh,” this shouldn’t be an intellectual stretch. And guess what? SAME EXACT GOD IN BOTH INSTANCES.

But the similarities don’t stop there. Islam is an Abrahamic faith — same as Christianity and Judaism. The Virgin Mary is revered in the Islamic faith. And which prophet of Islam is “the Messiah” who will return to Earth on Judgment Day to defeat the Antichrist?

That would be Jesus Christ.

Speaker Johnson Delivers 'Horrible' Sermon At House GOP Retreat
Mike Johnson

Since Republicans took control of the House following the 2022 midterms, the U.S. has faced a crisis of governance. Unable to quit their own petty infighting, caught up in ugly leadership squabbles, and unwilling to move without the blessing of Donald Trump, Speaker of the House Mike Johnson now commands a Congress well past the brink of disaster. After being unable to pass necessary legislation and wasting endless hours on a faux impeachment inquiry of Biden that is going nowhere, Republicans have generated such a maelstrom of incompetence that it’s putting millions of lives and the stability of the planet at risk.
