    so maybe you shouldn't throw the bigot/xenophobe card while totally surrounded by glass.
    From wikipedia:
    A bigot is a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one exhibiting intolerance, and animosity toward those of differing beliefs. The predominant usage in modern English refers to persons hostile to those of differing race, ethnicity, nationality, inter-regional prejudice, gender and sexual orientation, homelessness, various medical disorders particularly behavioral disorders and addictive disorders and religion or spirituality. Forms of bigotry may have a related ideology or world views.
    I'll admit that I, according to some definitions, am bigotted against bigots. But this is not my own preferred definition of the term bigot, which to me applies to people who are vehemently intolerant of others based on race, creed, sex, sexual preference, etc. Lest we equivocate, I'll call me usage bigotry1 and your usage bigotry2.

    Being vehemently intolerant of racists is a kind of bigotry that I adamantly support. I question anybody who isn't "bigoted2 against bigots1."

    You are standing with radical Islam and throwing the moderates under the bus.

    So anyone who doesn't agree with you or who wants to identify terrorists in the United States gets labeled by you as racists, bigots and xenopobic. Got it.

They are trying to pit Americans against Islam itself, which is precisely the battle the terrorists wanted to fight.
    How is the Tea Party relevant here? King isn't a Tea Party member or supporter and the Tea Party didn't exist as a movement in 2007, therefore that's just another red herring.

    I want it too. I want to find out who's wanting to blow other people up, no matter if their muslim, christian, agnostic or any other religion. The more we identify, the better off we'll be.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    This thread is prime example that liberals suffer from anal-cranial inversion.

    How could you possibly be against investigating the radicalization of Muslims in America?

    I mean, how candy ass can you get?

    Double-down and derailing the thread. Well done!

    This is precisely the opposite of what I am doing. It is, however, what King is doing. Or rather, he's fulfilling what all the radicals want by making this an clear us vs. them conflict, and he's throwing moderates under the bus by lumping the vast majority of Muslims in with a fringe minority if criminals.

    This whole thing is disgusting.

    Nice straw man. In reality, there are plenty of other reasons people might disagree with me. Ignorance for one.

    Tea Party, Minutemen, Militia Movement, call it whatever you want. It's a substrate of populism and nativism that is surging in this country right now. I could try to keep the Tea Party identity straight from other brands of racist populism, but why bother?

    If that's what you want, then why not have a hearing on all terrorists, whether they are Muslim, Christian, agnostic, or any other religion? Why go about this task by singling out the Islam specifically and alienating the vast majority of peaceful Muslims while doing so? It is either bigotry(1) or idiocy.

    No, he is standing WITH the moderates against the radicals. They are being harmed by the radicalization of their young people too.
