Nevada/Oklahoma Radio Talk Show Host Rick Roberts Goes on Anti-Islam Rant

Today, Nevada/Oklahoma radio talk show host Rick Roberts went on an anti-Muslim rant on his show, including saying the following:

  • Every American Muslim and every American mosque should be placed on a "watch list."
  • Islam is a "cult," not a religion.
  • People become Muslims and stay with Islam through "fear and intimidation."
  • Ban Muslims from coming to the United States.
  • Quran encourages Muslims to lie.
  • The ultimate goal of Islam is world domination.
  • Compares Islam and Muslims to dangerous disease.
  • Islam is a "cave-dwelling, knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing" doctrine.
