    Good for you and neither should any of us.

    What do you think they were? There have been a few guesses.

    Being the "independent" who ALWAYS posts as a GOP/Conservative and incessantly uses the word liberal as if it's a bad thing.
    It many cases it is and has given the original meaning of 'liberal' a bad name. There is a time for both.
    How dare you accuse any Americans of "just realizing" that terrorism is happening at home!
    That seems to be the case for many, as though it all began with Pamela Geller.
    Unless none of those killed in the twin towers were liberals. Just more BILs from you trying to divide Americans.
    Me dividing Americans? You overestimate my influence.
    And none of those 4,500 soldiers killed in chicken**** chickenhawk Cheney's lying war were "liberals" either were they Grant?
    Most were republicans who supported their President. In fact it was a liberal, Al Gore, who didnt want their votes to be counted. And of course the war was lost when Obama retreated from victory.
    Not to mention the tens of thousands of Wounded Warriors still swamping our VA that the idiot Rumsfeld didn't plan on in his 6-month war.
    Amazing that I know more about US history than you. And of course this is another example of how the Leftists are dividing America, giving terrorsts more reason why the country is evil.

    She didn't invite terrorism. They were already here and went to her venue.

    Ah, yes. "The left."

    Nobody is telling you that you can't say things. Yet another lie.

    To piss off Muslims. That's plainly obvious.

    Why do people on the right have to pretend that there is always a good guy and a bad guy? Like life is a fairy tale, comic book or the bible. The people who tried to shoot up this poorly conceived and insensitive gathering are undoubtedly awful people and in the wrong. That fact doesn't change the idiotic and insensitive nature of the gathering. Both things are true. This is also not an argument about equivalence, which Islamophobes like to throw out there. Things also do not have to be equally bad for both things to be bad. Ignorant redneck dip ****s shouldn't mock and defame other peoples religion and religious fundamentalists should DEFINITELY NOT attempt to commit acts of violence in response to that. That should be something we can all agree on. Unfortunately sanity and reason are in short supply in America, especially on the internet.

    Why do conservatives pretend they are the defenders of the politically incorrect all of a sudden? Is it because they really don't understand the difference between being politically incorrect and being a bigot?

    Also, there is nothing politically incorrect in this country about Muslim bashing. A person can go on national tv and scream bomb them at the top of their lungs. People like Sam Harris and Bill Maher can spew vile bigotry as often as they like without discursive repercussion. On the other hand, go criticize the troops some time. Now there is a subject where political correctness has silenced any dissent and surprise surprise, look who is leading the charge of political correctness...... It certainly isn't "the left."

    Full interview.

    In that interview, he said that calling her a pig was too good for her
    Which is clearly a lot less worse than Sharia calling for peoples executions.

    Not at all. It was an obvious attempt to be like them. But again. In America we have lots of guns. Now they said the officer had a handgun (and I'm pretty sure cnn showed a "recreation of 2 cops with sub machine guns) too. Pretty impressive.
