and, not as surprisingly, Alex Jones, infowars guy, also goofed on NPR:
Charlie Rose, just being himself, seriously used his stupid NPR voice whilst listening to some Iranian mullah apologist try to justify the Holocaust denying nation acquisition of nuclear weapons on his 1/9/2014 show:
I have to compliment the Iranian dude, tho. He was able to simultaneously slag off Israel's right to exist without actually mentioning Israel by name, treating it like a Hogwarts student does "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named" Lord Voldemort.
So even tho this tweet is probably a just joke:
Neckties are symbol of West's victory over Ottoman Empire. Ergo, casual Friday (+ @markos on TV) = Muslim plot http://bit.ly/ax7xJG

notice how the Iranian Ambassador refuses to wear a necktie, presumably, because he disagrees with liberal imam from Islam Today and believes that neckties really are a tool of the evil Christian Great Satan Haberdashers:
Patton got fired from his job in post WWII Germany after comparing Nazis to Democrats and Republicans:QuestionSome people say that it is unlawful for Muslim men to wear neckties, since they claim that the necktie has its origins in Christian religious traditions and that it symbolizes the cross. On the other hand, there are people who say that a Muslim man can even wear silk neckties - though silk is forbidden for men - because the tie is not actually worn directly on the body. What is the correct ruling on men's neckties?Answered bySheikh Salman al-OadahI do not see anything wrong with Muslim men wearing neckties, because the necktie is no longer a distinguishing mode of dress for the unbelievers. It is now a part of the Muslims’ dress in many Muslim countries like Egypt, Syria, Iraq, and Morocco...etc. Therefore, the purpose of forbidding it does not exist. Even if it is something that originated among non-Muslims, anything that becomes global ceases to belong to any specific civilization.
It is not permissible for men to wear a necktie made of silk. Silk is forbidden for men, whether worn direct on the body, around the neck, or over the head. All of these are different ways of wearing something.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) took a piece of silk in his right hand and a piece of gold in his left, held them aloft, and said: “These are forbidden for the men of my people and permitted for the women.” [Sunan Ibn Mâjah]
but Charlie Rose still keeps his 10 million jobs after comparing the Iranian theocracy to Western democracies:
And, finally, from Captain Obvious:
#CaptainObvious Once Kerry signs faux "nuke deal" with Iran - Look for Israel to be pressured to disarm. http://t.co/6gEkCxfQYZ
