I don't usually pay attention to this sort of thing, but this propsed constitutional amendment banning the practice of Islam in America (and requiring that "all Mosques, schools and Muslim places of worship and religious training are to be closed, converted to other uses, or destroyed" without compensation, plus a possible death penalty for advocating sharia) is rather a standout among Z-list right-wing blog posts written by mouthbreathing bigots. Bonus points to the amendment writer for the not knowing the difference between "tenet" and "tenant," or "prescribed" and "proscribed." And I love the last article:

Nothing in this amendment shall be construed as authorizing the discrimination against, of violence upon, nor repudiation of the individual rights of those Americans professing to be Muslim....

Right -- we're banning your religion, but in the nicest possible way.

Oh, and there's a link at the blog to something called the Loyalist Party ("A Third Party Against Islamic Hate"), which has a couple of logos that must have looked better in the original German.

Leonard Pierce has more.
