Embrace the Suck
They? Who is they? That indicts ALL Americans?Uhm ... are they having an "internation burn-a-Quran day" or not?
I don't know, who gives a shit?Did Dick Cheney compare Muslims in general to neo-Nazis or not?
I have never read a statement that lacks more logic than this.Do not 68% of the people oppose that mosque, which implictly means with logical necessity that they blame Islam in general for 9/11?
More generalizations without substance...where would your posts be without them?Yes. But when you want to attack terrorists, you, I dunno, maybe just shouldn't cry bloody murder when those many Muslims who condemn terrorism want to build a mosque?
Or you shouldn't claim they do not renounce terrorism, when a huge majority of them has constantly been doing that every day again with the harshest words for the past 9 years, yet nobody reports that or listens?
And, you know, just maybe, leading politicians shouldn't compare Muslims in general to neo-Nazis?
Oh God, MORE "it's Glen Beck's fault!!!" Really?Not true. There has been a huge amount of condemnation by the vast majority of Muslim communities -- yet somehow, nobody listened, and people still refuse to acknowledge that. That's because this anti-Muslim sentiment, the new brand of anti-Semitism, can easily be abused politically and economically -- people like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh or quite a few Republican politicians could no longer make that much money or votes, if they didn't even fuel this bigoted hatred.
Muslims Condemn Terrorist Attacks
I could post links of Imam's praising what happened and people dancing in the streets in the Middle East when 9/11 happened, Sim.
Yeah, that's it, people just love to hate themMuslims do condemn terrorism. People just love to hate them, so they won't let these facts get in the way of a good islamophobic rant.
Actually, no, if you actually read the polls and understood what you read you'd realize you are mischaracterizing said polls.All I said can thoroughly be backed up by various polls, many of which I posted here before. Unless you have evidence that they are fake, you have to concede that what I say is the sad truth.
I'm so sure you've spoken to a good sample of Americans:lol: You're generalizing yet again, Sim. Are you EVER going to make an argument with substance or are you going to continue your "Americans are racists" comments?Also, everybody with even two brain cells can realize that when speaking with a good sample of a few dozen Americans. If your impression is different, you either are lucky, live in an alternate universe or you have a good capacity to ignore idiocy.
Here we go yet again, with the personal attacks. How about answering a fucking question for once without resorting to this idiocy?What I find disgusting, and very telling, on the other hand, is that you imply that it is fine and nice to kidnap innocent people from the streets, detain and torture them and deny them fair trials, just because one among these many raped and brutalized by the American government was indeed guilty of terrorism -- and you ignore the well documented fact that many have been released as innocent, which means you are either entirely ignorant, or you have no moral compass whatsoever.
Pathetic. And sad, really.Either way, although I don't doubt you have the best intentions, those who cheered when Hitler came to power were similar.
With all this nonsense, it's a shame you haven't been banned already.The horrible thing is that in your case, it doesn't even come with malice -- you simply chose to ignore the sad facts when confronted with them, because you cling to the sick notion that your "side" is good and thus above criticism.
Just like the large majority of Nazi followers, who didn't really hate Jews either, but were very angry at these horrible pinko commies who allegedly piss on the flag by criticizing the government.
Why would anyone think that?:lol:EDIT:
Just one single question for all of you:
What do you think would keep people who do not protest when its government violates the most basic human rights by employing torture, kidnapping and detaining people and denying them fair trials, from supporting a full-scale Holocaust?
As I see it, people who don't protest against the former will not stand up against the latter either.
And for the record, before someone puts words into my mouth: Of course the stereotype I described above is exaggerated, and I do not want to imply a majority of Americans thinks like that.
Don't forget to impugn ALL conservatives, Sim, you're slipping.But I think that despite all exaggeration, there is a very true core in it. Everybody who has talked to a good sample of Americans knows that these people do exist. When you listen to Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh etc. and check their ratings and numbers of books sold, you know they exist.
They're not high profile because no one really cares anymore. Flag burning or Bible burning, or burning a Church isn't news anymore. Anything that can be remotely called Islamaphobic is.Except I haven't heard of any high-profile Bible or US flag burnings recently. Or ever. (Although, I do concede that I'm your younger) And for that matter, burning anything symbolic is an act of indirect violence in my opinion, and not free speech, and thus should not be tolerated whatsoever.
