Those bloggers

In this brief, the Council on American-Islamic Relations complains:

"Some of the most virulent reaction to the government’s naming of CAIR as an unindicted coconspirator can be seen by the reaction of various weblogging pundits. The website JihadWatch.org writes that with the naming of CAIR “[o]ne would think that would end forever the canny masquerade as a moderate civil rights organization, a charade it has been successfully pulling off for years.” Unindicted co-conspirators in Hamas funding case say Muslim civil rights woes increasing, JihadWatch.org, at http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/016942.php. The website LittleGreenFootballs.com dismisses the civil rights report of CAIR, “one of the unindicted co-conspirators in the case against Hamas-linked ‘charity’ the Holy Land Foundation” as “bogus” and “inflated.” See Unindicted Co-Conspirators Whining Again, LittleGreenFootballs.com (June 15, 2007), available at http://littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/?entry=25856_Unindicted_Co-Conspirators_Whining_Again&only; see also Patrick Poole, CAIR Fingered by Feds, FrontPageMagazine.com (June 8, 2007) (advocating that CAIR should be “abandoned by its friends in Congress, the media establishment, academia, and the federal government, due to the Department of Justice’s identification of CAIR’s terrorist ties”)."

That's harsh. It makes me think of Democrats calling for all Americans to boycott Fox News advertisers.
