the KKK investigation did not result in calling the innocent members of the Christian community to explain why those of their faith tolerated the presence of these cross burning Bible toting KKK terrorists who professed to be of the same faith
no investigation of the abortion bombing catholic terrorists resulted in calling the innocent members of the catholic community to explain why those of their faith tolerated the presence of these murdering, anti-abortion catholic terrorists who professed to be of the same faith
we should be investigating terrorism. we should also recognize what about our foreign policy contributes to the ability of terrorist groups to recruit those who are willing to end their own lives to attack us. the IRA terrorist supporter who hosted this congressional hearing was not interested in terrorism. he was pandering to the reich wing. bet that makes your side proud [/sarcasm]
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d 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.
with all the depth of logic he was able to plumb
you still see no hypocrisy in calling the innocent muslim community to task for the terrorists who share their faith while finding it reasonable to not do the same to address the terrorists found within the Christian community or the terrorists within the catholic community
simply declare your position correct and mine wrong without offering any figment of a defense of your own stance or one which stands in opposition to mine
but then, it's not as if those of your political persuasion are inclined to base belief on things like fact and evidence, much less principle and logic
Nah...you are just doing that same mindless bull**** you and so many of you do...any time there is anything terrorist related you do that mindless kneejerk ohmigodIgottadefend Muslims thing. No one is attacking Muslims. No one is attacking Islam. He was identifying a salient point...that here...right here in good ol River City we got troubly and it starts with E and it ends with S and its called Extremists. EXTREMISTS ARE INDEED using perversions of the Koran and recruiting individuals. Its a problem.
"A fourth panelist, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca, brought with him a Muslim member of the sherrif’s department whose job is to work with the Muslim community.
Baca also noted that he has exhorted CAIR leaders to use their positions to fight against extremism within the Muslim community.
“If I were in your position,” Baca said to the group’s leaders, “I would post admonitions in mosques, if you have the ability, that advises the attendees that come to pray to not bring in extremist points of view.”
That Baca...what an ignorant extremist...you know...for attacking Muslims.
Oh...wait...it wasnt ABOUT attacking Muslims...it was about identifying radical Islam in America.
There have been reports that a great percentage of Mosques in the US were being used to promote sharia law, and other anti Western propaganda, as has been done in the UK and most everywhere else.
Why the US should be immune to such commonplace goings on has never been explained. Could you try?
This is just false. Pape is a Republican and Libertarian. The economics and political science departments at UChicago are FILLED with conservatives.Second, Pape although not a self professed liberal, sits in the ivory tower of UofChicago and caters to a who's who of liberals. Not only professionally but in writing as well. That you would attempt to use the well worn liberal tactic of the unassailable individual to make your argument for his hypothesis only tells me that something is seriously wrong with it.
An article about Chechen women has nothing to do with this.Consider an OpEd that Pape wrote for the NYTimes last year on Chechen women...He used the same arguments you are trying here and was smacked down in a rebuttal, here is a snippet of that retort.
this points to some flawed methodology in Pape's theories.
This is false. Find out who that seat actually belongs to and come back later.The fact that today's terror attacks around the world is nearly 100% driven by Islam not only as a religious ideology, but Islam as a political tool as well, shows me further that this PoliSci prof is far too narrow in his attempt to blame his own country like any good dhimmi should.
