    There is some truth in what Geller says. SOME. "Radical Islam is bad." Well, no ****.

    But we don't expect any of that from the 'liberals'.
    So liberals don't criticize radical Islam?

    If I ran down the streets of Harlem wearing a sandwich board that says "I HATE NIGGERS," that neither excuses the likely violent response, nor does it make my actions some boon to the community.

    Certain folks here seem to have the idea that a giant wrong makes a less significant wrong just a-ok.

    Of course there may be liberals have been critical of radical Islam but they do tend to be call critics of Islamists 'bigot's' etc. But feel free to point out any liberal who has taken a strong unequivocal stand against the failures of Islam and we''ll both salute this person.

    You're in her same league. Do you need to draw pictures that offend somebody else in order to feel important, hmm. Do you need to color cartoons that offend somebody in order to stand up and beat your chest that you've defended your right to free speech, is that what makes Grant feel like a big man?

    That's a load of horse apples and you damn well know it. Nobody calls critics of "radical" Islam "bigots," unless they are also roping normal, peaceful, run of the mill Muslims under their tent of BS. Of course, in conservaland, peaceful Muslims apparently don't exist.

    Don't mind if I do.
