    Aren't all Islamofascists and their fellow travelers?

    Fortunately, over here, we can defend ourselves with deadly force, if need be. This woman probably didn't stand a chance. If someone tried to behead me, you can be damn sure that they would be dead, if I had anything to do with it.

    Of course he was. Do you remember David Koresh? Was it his medical/psychological insanity that the media went on about, or was it his religious cult practices, which were blamed for his perverted behaviors? I seem to recall that his religion was the subject of great ridicule and disdain.

    which is why I advocate that any weapon civilian police are allowed to use, all the rest of us lawful citizens can freely own an purchase.

    The left will pick and choose how they respond to these things as it fits them. No need for consistency.

    In all fairness and honestly, not everyone on the left. One of my favorite people on the planet is on the left, and he is absolutely able to see this issue clearly, and apply standards consistently. This issue is one of integrity when it comes to life values. Are those who condemn Christians for doing insane things, based on their religion, also willing to do the same when it comes to Islam? In my experience, that often is not the case. Islam is treated by a different standard, and the reason it is treated by a different standard, is because those who pay it undue reverence, and walk on eggshells around those who practice it, are cowards when it comes to confronting what is a growing problem around the world.

    Anyone who starts a statement with "the left," in an attempt to weakly generalize, has forfeited any and all credibility.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    So you are now reduced to weak generalizations to criticize what you call weak generalizations. Makes sense.

    All I know is, when an American cop finds out that a child is being raped, he tries to stop it. That alone makes American cops a hundred times better then British ones.

    I couldn't agree more. But two generations of Americans have been indoctrinated in public schools and in colleges that their country has such a deplorable history that it's barely worth defending. That's what millions of low-information leftists believe, but are not honest enough to admit. Combine that with their indoctrination that our culture is no better than anyone else's, and their willingness for to appease even the most vicious and depraved people in the world really isn't surprising.
