Inconsistently dangerous

Does anyone else notice that in the aftermath of the Fort Hood tragedy, FoxNews/rightists/whatever are casually saying we need to "debrief" all American Muslims in the military (see below,) or that we need to investigate all the Muslim interns on the Hill, and yet at the same time, at the exact same time, they're screaming that the Obama administration is trying to take away their "liberties?"


  • The Through the Looking Glass like insanity in the Right Wing mind is truly head spinning. One could site scores of examples -- in deed nearly everything that flows from their lips -- of such dangerous insanity.

  • This one's a little different though because of the racial/religious subtext. In this there's the clear implication that rights should be distributed differently.

  • It's also a frank admission that the War on Terror is in fact the War on Islam.

  • Yeah.

    As an aside. I saw Huntington's Clash of Civilizations in the clearance bin at my used book store. Several copies. One dollar each.

  • This is not good. Lieberman, a conservative, orthodox Jew, is going after the Army because he thinks they didn't do a good job of weeding out Muslims.

  • YEah. I saw a different version of that.

  • I guess you didn't see the one where Israeli soldiers reported their rabbis were framing their attack on Gaza as religious war. How about the YouTube clip where American soldiers were going to spread Christianity ( that ain't any Christianity I ever heard of, boys ) among the heathen Afghans ? There is nothing more dangerous than religious war to inflame hatred : pretty good when people are angry about things that cannot even be sensed! I think the clip was called 'Crusaders'. If you know anything about the history of the Middle East !
    ( King Richard III was the idiot who got himself captured by Sulemain the Magnificent. His brother Prince John was the supposed grinch who oppressed England to pay the 'King's Ransom'....and it was a hummer. Robin Hood era...that was the king he had followed before becoming an outlaw chief in Sherwood Forest.
    Side note of irony : when John became king, he was styled 'Defender of the Faith'. He got so p.o.'d with Rome that he was dickering with Sulemain for England to become Islamic !
    That would have made us all miss the Tudor Period of Henry Bolingbroke : the Butcher ! )
    I saw the clip about the soldier-zealots at a clip at They Gave Us a Republic (on Soapblox)..but again, that was a while back.
    You'd likely have more luck finding similar material in my Perception files...or Religion.
