Conservative commentator and columnist Kurt Schlichter was caught off-guard and unprepared while being an Islamophobic douche on a CNN panel. When asked by Poppy Harlow to give sources for the fear and propaganda he’s spewing, Schlichter does what any good conservative does when confronted: He yells, gets belligerent and has a little hissy fit.
As the two other panelists look on with satisfied grins, Schlichter makes a complete fool of himself. Apparently nobody told him that Muslim-bashing is only tolerated on Fox News and at Republican presidential campaign events. Schlichter has no response other than, “Don’t…don’t start calling me Islamophobe.”
Nobody had called him anything, but if the shoe fits. That kind of statement comes from a certain kind of self-awareness. When you start calling yourself names while you’re throwing a temper tantrum it’s because you know what people are thinking, because you know what you are. The entire exchange is nothing short of hilarious.
