Orange County Tea Partiers Show the World What Intolerance Looks Like

I can't pretend to know anything about the Islamic Circle of North America, the group that was holding a fundraiser at the Yorba Linda Community Center in Orange County, California on February 13th, but I'm relatively sure holding a protest and chanting "Go back home" isn't helping dispel anti-American sentiment anywhere, especially since the event was to raise money for "disaster relief, womens shelters, [and] halal food banks." At very least, I know which of the two groups I would prefer as neighbors, and it's not the ones wearing the American flag themed clothing and yelling "Mohammed was a child molester".
