    Apparently rightie statists aren't about taking responsibility for their choices, huh ?

    Exactly!

    I still think she's wrong, though ...

    nimby --- you say that you do not believe that making fun of religion should be illegal across the board. You say it's "the way" pamela geller did it.

    So give me a scenario where making fun of islam is done the "right way".
    While we are on a war footing with these terrorists, I don't think there is a "right way" to make fun of Islam, though I don't know why you wouldn't capitalize it.
    We've always been brought up in the USA to believe we are better than that--from either ideological EXTREME.

    What Geller has really done is far more insidious and dangerous than what ISIL has done MENTALLY.
    She has single-handedly birthed an untold number of HOME-GROWN terrorists---something that should scare ALL Americans.

    Does drawing a picture of Mohammed really fall into those categories? You must really feel strongly about this guy.

    Speaking of Rand, how do you feel about the way his GOP is attacking him right now?
    While McConnell wants the Patriot Act passed untouched, with its mass-gathering of data?

    I support McConnell on this--how else can we stop the terrorists?

    Yes, even leftists seem to be realizing that terrorism is happening at home rather than just in far off lands to people of a different background and culture. This threat existed long before Pamela Geller arrived on the scene and there have been many attacks on Americans in the US, and elsewhere, which didn't involve her at all. These attacks were were carried out by Islamists hoping to terrify Americans -hence the word terrorism- and terror certainly seems to be taking hold of the leftists.

    No, but the motives of the intended victims certainly are.
