There’s gun nuts and then there’s nuts with guns.
Joseph Francis Farah, a leading ‘birther’ who runs the right-wing, conspiracy website WorldNetDaily, was reportedly caught by TSA agents on Sunday with a loaded .38-caliber revolver in his carry-on bag as he passed through security at Dulles International Airport outside Washington.
Farah, who denounced TSA screening practices in a 2010 column, faces a class 1 misdemeanor charge for carrying a gun in an airport terminal, according to a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. He was released pending a summons.
Appropriately, this is the same dude who coined the phrase that the TSA performs “gate rape.”
He also thinks, and I’m not making this up, that President Obama is Kenyan and that “he’s gay and Muslim and may have orchestrated the murder of his former gay lovers.”
This guy is the reason why I support the TSA.
Thanks to Brian for the heads up.
