Cathie Adams, Texas' Top Islamaphobe, Thinks Grover Norquist's Beard Makes Him Muslim

Cathie Adams
Cathie Adams, the president of the Texas Eagle Forum who briefly chaired the state's Republican Party, made her thesis clear early in a recent presentation to the Far North Dallas Tea Party with a quote from author Paul Sperry.

America is fighting a perfect enemy, one protected by religious freedoms and racial sensitivities. And we have a less than perfect understanding of what motivates the enemy, and how it is aided and abetted by a religious support network that exploits American culture and tax laws and is patiently infiltrating the American system to overturn it from within.

The quote's a reference to Muslims, of course, and Adams used it as part of her lecture to underline just how sneaky and evil they are.

Case in point, Adams says, was the prophet Mohammed, who was a misogynistic charlatan who couldn't read and molested children "The Bible is consistent it is unchanging and it is the inspired word of God and it is infallible," she declares, her rising voice adding nuance to an already sophisticated theological argument. "That is not true of the Q'uran. It came from a man who was illiterate."

But that's all standard, bread-and-butter Islamaphobia. Adams outdoes herself later in her PowerPoint when she declares that Grover Norquist, the anti-tax activist and liberal scourge, is "showing signs of converting to Islam" and is "Trouble with a capital T." Need convincing? He married a Muslim woman and, "As you can see, he has a beard."

While bearded hipsters everywhere ponder life without artisan bacon and puzzle over the direction of Mecca, Adams moves onto other Islamic threats that, you might be surprised to learn, are quite dire locally. She blasts Harmony Public Schools, one of the state's best-performing charters and a favored Eagle Forum punching bag, for "refusing to hire American teachers" and flying in Muslim sub-contractors from Turkey. She expresses hope that an amendment attached to the legislature's main public school bill by Arlington Republican Representative Bill Zedler, which requires members of a charter school's board to be registered voters, and thus citizens, might help end this practice.

Adams next turns to Richardson City Councilman Amir Omar and his failed 2006 bid for Eddie Bernice Johnson's U.S. House seat.

"Many of my Republican friends were supporting him because they didn't wanted to look like racists," Adams says. "I went right into the heart of that, and I changed my Republican friends from supporting a man who had never even voted. But they were afraid of not supporting him because he was a Muslim.

"That man moved and came to Richardson and ran for mayor and lost to Laura Mackza," she continued. "Thank God."

All that comes from part one of a video from the Far North Dallas Tea Party speech. We haven't yet made it to part two.

Grover Norquist has a Muslim wife? And she's his beard? What? I'm so confused.

I just threw up a little. What a tremendous moron. I hate that she is associated with Texas in anyway. Certainly doesn't help our already horrid reputation on cultural sensitivity.

This photo is some of Olin Mill's best work.  While it is clear that Cathie Adams beauty doesn't require incredible lighting, make up, or a smeared shit background, we see how Olin allows these to work in an organic way in stepping up this remarkable woman from a 10 to an 11.

Some day when I complete my course at The Jeffress Gay Pray Away University, I hope to be able to find a woman like Cathie Adams so we can procreate Lil Xtian Eaglets throughout our State.

Is there like a school you go to that qualifies you to be this stupid? Does the Texas Labor Code require a license for it? It should.

All these words wasted in debate...just show up on a vid and be done with them.

As one of the few Republicans that reads the observer, let me say this woman has been an embarrassment to the party since she first crawled out of her hole.


She and her ilk are major reasons the GOP is so unpopular and hated. 

Self righteous "religious" wackjob.

Does the "far" in Far North Dallas Tea Party denote location, or extremeness of views?

Ooops, mistake, "umm" is the correct term for the forehead mark of piety, whereas "ummah" is the term for the generic, global Moslem community.

The only thing worse than this woman's acceptance as an authoritative truth-teller among her ilk is the scary question, "I wonder who SHE considers too right-wing?"

"More un-Muslim than thou" has its parallel in fundie Islam as well. The most dedicated of the jihadists have their trousers hemmed above the ankle, as this supposedly was the style affected by the truly righteous in Mohammed's era. Related: since they were all illiterate then, and almost all illiterate now, how did the few copies of "Islamic GQ" survive? But you see that accruing sanctimonious points applies to both fundie Christians and fundie Moslems.

Another remarkable parallel is the coloring of the "ummah" spot. This is the circular, coin-sized, long-term bruise on the forehead of believers whose piety in praying, specifically touching one's forehead to the ground, is proven by the depth and color of the ummah. This is analagous, I believe, to the fundie Christian's not-bragging boast of attending Weds eve services and Sun morning Bible study as well as the main event later Sunday morning.

@bvckvs  No.  No she isn't.  There is a mainstream and a radical fringe in the Texas GOP.  Whatever credibility she once had with the former has long been lost following her near-disastrous foray as state chair and continuing support for weirdo long-shots in the primaries the last couple of cycles.  She is just a sad joke.

uh, sorry to disagree, but the election of Ted Cruz shows that there is a "radical fringe" that is alive a well.
