Rudy Giuliani Veterans’ Co-Chairman Resigns Over Muslim Remarks

"A co-chairman for Rudy Giuliani’s veterans’ coalition in New Hampshire resigned Saturday after telling a British newspaper that Muslims need to be chased “back to their caves.”

The response was swift after the GOP presidential candidate faced questions Friday night about the comments, made by John Deady during a video interview with the Guardian at a Giuliani house party in Manchester, N.H. Deady was named co-chairman of the New Hampshire Veterans for Rudy over the summer.

“Mr. Deady offered his resignation from his volunteer position in the campaign and I accepted his resignation,” Giuliani New Hampshire Chairman Wayne Semprini said in a statement.

In the original Guardian interview, Deady said Giuliani is the best candidate to handle “one of the most difficult problems in current history” — “the rise of the Muslims.”

He added: “We need to keep the feet to the fire and keep pressing these people until we defeat or chase them back to their caves or, in other words, get rid of them.”

Later in an interview with the Talking Points Memo Web site, Deady confirmed he made the statements and said he was referring to all Muslims.

“I don’t subscribe to the principle that there are good Muslims and bad Muslims,” Deady said in the article. “They’re all Muslims.”

Now, a man may think that, but to be closely associated with a Presidential candidate he really shouldn't say that.

I myself trust them as much as I'd trust a supposedly tame big cat. Sooner or later the animal inside will win out and I for one don't wish to be around when it does. Unless suitably armed of course. I feel the most sorry for their kids. To be around such mind boggling murderous rage must be hard. Sort of like what Chelsea Clinton went through I'd imagine.
