    I did. When I copied/pasted, it changed everything to lowercase letters for some reason.
    Quit saying that, it makes you appear dumb. I don't know how many people in how many ways have acknowledged Geller's right to her expression, you should understand by now that she is being criticised for being intentionally provocative, insensitive to a whole religion for the sake of a bit of satisfaction of having ruffled a group of people she hates. Not that she can't do this, but that she shouldn't, because its nasty, hateful, and more importantly, draws out the extremists in that faith who respond violently. Its irresponsible. And for her efforts a man was shot and injured, fortunately not any worse, this time.

    The headlines of the video

    SHOCK VIDEO! Radical Imam Tells Pam Geller She Should Be Slaughtered
    They're shocked that Anjem Choudary would say something like that? I'd be shocked if he didn't come out with such hateful extreme views because he's been ranting and raving like this for years. They clearly have no idea who this individual is or they woldn't be shocked by the garbage that comes out of his mouth.

    Complete and utter nutjob. He's been discussed extensively over in the EU Forum (He's British) and in my four years here as a DP Member and I can't ever recall anyone having a reasonable word to say about him. Quite the opposite. He's a whacko.

    Morning Serenity....

    Well, I can certainly agree that no reasonable person agrees with Choudary. However, to read this thread and see the 'handwringing' over someone like Pam Geller hosting a cartoon contest, while at the same time seeing nothing wrong with federal funds supporting "Piss Christ" for example, just shows that maybe Christians should get more extreme, and then maybe the liberals screaming shhhhhh, would respect Christianity also....

    The only ones responsible for shooting anyone on this occasion were the terrorists.

    And liberals still want regular everyday Americans to be disarmed and helpless.

    Also, in a thread about terrorists trying to blow up a "Draw Mohammed" party it is hard to credibly use the "all clear!" defense.
    Islam used to be the intellectual and economic power in the world. While Christians were burning heretics, Islam was warmly welcoming other points of view. Do you know what happened? Islamic intellectuals decided that intellectual pursuits and critical thinking weren't important parts of Islam. As a culture they stopped questioning and just started to accept things. Now almost 2 billion Muslims live in arguable the most backward parts of the world. This isn't jingoism, it's measurable. The islamic world produces very little intellectual capital for its size.

    In the US we're in danger of going down the same path. And that's because it's becoming fashionable not to question anything.

    ***THINK***** Every single Islamic terrorist attack makes the news. Right wing attacks don't. The country is less than 1% Muslim, it's more than 30% right wing. Simple math would tell that even if Muslims are much more likely to be terrorists, there just aren't enough to account for right wingers becoming terrorists at a lesser rate. Furthermore, just look at the average conservative posting. In this thread alone there are a dozen posts wishing violent harm on other people. Right wing thought has become laced full of hate with very little introspection. And when you really think about it, there's very little difference between that and the thinking of radical Islamists (exuding the very few who actually carry out attacks). And this isn't just a right wing thing, left wing environmentalists do the same thing, there are just fewer of them to pull from.

    So if you want to help keep this country from falling off into irrelevance, then take off the blinders and think! Don't take my word for anything, just look it up! Figure out how there could be more Islamic terrorists on US soil. Figure out what that actually means, how you could actually measure it, what that would imply!
