"When right, I shall often be thought wrong by those whose positions will not command a view of the whole ground." --Thomas Jefferson
National Public Radio fired its longtime news analyst Juan Williams [last] week for saying something that many Americans feel. Williams, who also works as a Fox News Channel contributor (as I do), told FNC host Bill O'Reilly that when he gets on an airplane and sees someone in Muslim garb, he gets 'nervous.' Williams prefaced his remarks by reminding viewers that he had written several books about the civil rights movement. 'I'm not a bigot,' he said, noting that his uneasiness has a basis in fact. He recalled the would-be Times Square bomber's words last week when he was sentenced to life in prison for trying to detonate a bomb. 'The war with Muslims is just beginning,' Williams paraphrased. But Faisal Shahzad's actual statement was far more chilling. Shahzad warned those in the courtroom: 'Brace yourself, because the war with Muslims has just begun. Consider me the first droplet of the blood that will follow.' And Shahzad's tirade is only the latest in a long string of invectives by those who claim to speak for Islam. Such vile threats cannot help but provoke fear.... Unfortunately, NPR chose to punish Williams for admitting his fear. That doesn't solve anything. ... It is unfortunate that we live in a world in which one group's religious faith can make the group an object of fear. But it is not Juan Williams or others like him who are the chief culprits in this state of affairs. It is those who fly airplanes into buildings in the name of Allah who should be blamed by everyone, including their co-religionists who share no guilt for these crimes." --columnist Linda Chavez for the The Patriot Post (www.patriotpost.us/subscribe/ )"
Why, aren't social liberals just dandy? Aren't they full of understanding and compassion? Don't they champion the middle ground and seek to do as any good moderates would, a fairness in America?
No, they are spineless little people that never got recognized in high school. never got to play on the team or join the school club because they were social out casts, just as they are now. Through some cosmic catastrophe...they landed and became "news reporters" or lawyers and then....government officials unless they stayed in their most comfortable environmental, animal rights, socialistic, green peace groups.
Really, the Mad American has had it with them. As it relate to politics and common sense, they are a waste of the air they consume, Their twisted views (Barack Hussein Obama II) are like a cancer on America!
Understand this about the difference in the world as it relates to Religion;
Christians are called to spread their faith through the love of Jesus Christ.
Muslims are called to spread their faith by killing all who do not believe as they do and to kill anyone in their own religion that does not follow the law to the letter ( Muslim Sharia law). They believe the surest way to get to Heaven is to die killing none Muslims.
Get your head out of the sand and look around....any sane peace loving, freedom loving person should be scared, very scared!
