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.
    What happened to the Muslim golden age was the Mongol invasion. The Monastic orders of Europe were also responsible in the Middle Ages for protecting much of the ancient knowledge we know today.

    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.
    The only place I see that happening is in the Global Warming debate.

    ***THINK***** Every single Islamic terrorist attack makes the news. Right wing attacks don't.
    False. They are all reported, there just aren't nearly as many right wing attacks as Islamic attacks.

    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.
    A poor use of statistics. The country is 30% right wing and 1% Muslim so there SHOULD be 30 times the number of "right wing" terrorist attacks if they are equally capable of generating terror attacks.... but the truth is that there are far more Islamic terror attacks than Right Wing terror attacks and that is using the very dubious rule of thumb that all home grown terrorists with a problem with Government are right wing.

    So the evidence of right wingers becoming terrorists at a lesser rate is that there are fewer right wing terrorists than Islamic terrorists even though there are 30 times more right wingers.

    Furthermore, just look at the average conservative posting. In this thread alone there are a dozen posts wishing violent harm on other people.
    And? Wishing harm on a guy intent on blowing up a building full of Americans isn't terrorism.

    Right wing thought has become laced full of hate with very little introspection.
    Haha! Oh irony. Your "I hate the haters" gambit defeats itself because you fail to be even a little introspective.

    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).
    There is little difference between you and right wingers because you hate each other... you are both infinitely better than the Islamic radical that wants to behead you and rape your children.



    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.
    Which isn't true, either, but again, even if the environmentalists are a small group compared to right wingers they have an inordinate number of terror attacks under their belts.

    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!
    Your "wake up sheeple" gambit is not better informed than your "I hate the haters" gambit.
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    And you're convinced we shouldn't do that, right? Is that why the leftists are so silent on the murders of Gays by Muslims while making a fuss about a hypothetical case about a pizza parlor in Indiana? Why they seldom complain about honor killings, stoning women, murdering Christians, and so on?

    The left prefers silence on these issues so as not to 'piss off Muslims'. We know that and understand that.

    That was a question addressed to your claim. Perhaps you should read it again.

    Then where is the problem and why use those adjectives?

    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."
    PC is just a means of censorship, introduced and yielded by the left.

    And I do agree-the left does want to speak poorly of the troops, they should be more vocal about it, instead of hiding.

    The intended victims are guilty, huh? Islamists drive across the country to murder innocent people attending this private venue and the terrorists have your sympathy, huh? Odd.

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.
    All true, but a whacko with a following.

    But.... let's keep talking about how Pamela Geller is hateful, eh?
    Isn't the dichotomy of the left striking?

    The funny thing is they aren't sure which is worse, Geller or Islamists.
