The latest GOP solution to the war in Iraq. Rep. Robin Hayes (R-N.C.) was quoted in his hometown paper as saying that we must convert the Middle East to Christianity. With The President we have to listen to the garbled rhetoric of a twisted facist, but this little Republican is spewing the most ridiculous and unfathomable Kumbaya drivel imaginable. Do any of these monsters realize the seriousness of the situation this country is in, or the difficulties that are soldiers are going through?
Robin Hayes says we will win in Iraq by "spreading the message of Jesus Christ" there.
Robin Hayes has the solution to the Iraq war: have our soldiers convert all Muslims to Christianity.
Having won the election by only a hair’s width and almost getting himself kicked out of Congress seems to have had some profound psychological effects on poor Mr. Hayes. A speech that flip-floppin’ Robin gave last week at the Concord Rotary Club seems to prove he has finally gone off the deep end.
Our local weekly newspaper the "Concord Standard and Mount Pleasant Times" reported on Mr. Hayes speech in his hometown:
First there’s the usual talk of how we’re "winning" over there: "The war in Iraq has got to be won; it’s being won" (A couple of months ago Hayes said that the rise in violence in Iraq was an indication that we’re winning.)
Then comes the real kicker: "Stability in Iraq ultimately depends on spreading the message of Jesus Christ, the message of peace on earth, good will towards men. Everything depends on everyone learning about the birth of the Savior." BlueNC

The things that immediately come to every readers mind is the similarity of Hayes' rhetoric to the rhetoric of the Crusades, and also the similarity to the quote
made by Ann Coulter
in her syndicated column;
"we should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity." Ann Coulter
