Those wacky conservatives are at it again, all worked up about President Obama's interview with Al-Arabiya, an Arab television network.
As Think Progress has noted, the conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer "complained that President Obama’s interview…was too 'apologetic and defensive.'”
Speaking on Fox News (naturally), Krauthammer continued: "We heard him say that we shouldn't paint Islam with a broad brush. Who does? That's a straw man."
Well, no. As it happens, a great many conservative politicians, pundits and talk radio blabbers have routinely done just that.
One of them, in fact, was Charles Krauthammer. Here's his quote from December 2002:
Whoa, Charlie! You mean there's no a single Muslim in any of these places who is remotely peaceful? Now that's a broad brush.
From Nigeria to Sudan to Pakistan to Indonesia to the Philippines, some of the worst, most hate-driven violence in the world today is perpetrated by Muslims and in the name of Islam.
