    Despite Obama's burning desire to make equivelants, I'd say the KKK probably murdered about 10 or so people for religous reasons. Of these, most were white Catholics. This number would also count some (7?) Italian railway workers killed because they were seen to be taking jobs from local protestants. The fact that the Italians were also Catholic made it easier for the KKK to justify the attack.

    Not as many as ISIS has. Not even close.

    Farhana Khera, executive director of the civil rights group Muslim Advocates, one of 13 participants, said the session gave Obama a chance to focus on Muslim Americans the way he has done with other constituencies, such as African American and Jewish groups. “I started off by saying the biggest concern I hear from Muslim parents is their fear that their children will be ashamed to be Muslim” because of discrimination, Khera said. “We are asking him to use his bully pulpit to have a White House summit on hate crimes against religious minorities, much like the summit on bullying reset the conversation around LGBT youth.”

    Obama emphasized the need to respect minorities in his speech Thursday, saying it was part of the obligation Americans face as members of a diverse and open society, “And if, in fact, we defend the legal right of a person to insult another’s religion, we’re equally obligated to use our free speech to condemn such insults — and stand shoulder to shoulder with religious communities, particularly religious minorities who are the targets of such attacks.”.....snip~

    Just like everything else in the world the liberals believe that respect is a human right and that there should be no requirement to EARN it.

    Instead of encouraging the Muslim community to recognize the danger of radicalization, rooting it out and taking steps to insure that it doesn't grow back Obama and the Democrats are just going to pat them on the fanny then hand them a sandwich and a voter registration card. The guy has a spine made of overcooked linguini and it's disgusting that this nation has tolerated his crap for as long as they have.

    I have many direct quotes from Obama that seem to contradict what you have posted, and I can cite them if you wish. However, in the interim, I will ask you to remember the recovered Muslim Brotherhood manifestos which were admitted as evidence into Federal Court in 2007 during the Holy Land Foundation trial which explicitly states their undying obsession with the conquest of western civilization, and that they will accomplish that goal "from within."

    If you wish, google Anti Jihad Report for an article titled Decades of UNINDICTED Muslim Co-Conspirators is MAJOR REASON Why America Is In Such A Mess written by Ben Barrack dated January 15, 2015.
    Hi there Polgara! Your quite correct, and this is Karma for better than a century of Western interference and aggression in the region. This is why we need people that think like Ron Paul (in terms of foreign policy, I'm not defending his entire platform) to advance a new policy that promotes and delivers peace to the region, that lifts everybody up and encourages progress and advancement. Our policies the past few decades have the region in flames and things are worse then they've been in a very long time. Sure its old news, but don't forget the suffering and chaos unfolding in Libya, a North African country we have helped put into ruin.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    There is no equivalency....It's a false narrative that once again leads some to believe that Obama protects, and runs cover for terrorists.

    What a ****in idiot. It's the talking points though i mean look at this:

    What it is attempting is to completely and utterly detach the actions of ISIS from Islam in any fashion, to paint it as something wholey different and unrelated, and something that should not be used to any degree as a reflection on the current situation of the religion of Islam.

    Which is interest, becuase I can not recall ever once seeing him nor any liberal attempting to detach the Crusades from Christianity as something wholey different and unrelated, and something that should not be used to any degree as a reflection on the situation of the religion of Christian, past or present.



    You can't detatch islamic radicalism from islam. Especially when we are the loudest voices against it.

    I should demand reparations, being that I am Italian and Catholic.

    I sense a pattern,
    And not just black people. With our napalm bombs in Dresden and Tokyo, and Vietnam, other races and ethnicities were burnt alive. And then there's incineration by nuclear bombs dropped on two civilian targets. Not a support of anything the Islamic State is doing, just pointing out how people can justify anything, the above mentioned atrocities have been justified by patronising Americans for decades.
