    Suggesting that American Liberals hate America is pointless, untrue and meant to incite people in this Forum. Liberals do not hate America and this thread is not about Liberals hating America. It's about Peter King trying to stir up hatred for Muslims through fear tactics.

    Where I'm coming from we do not judge entire groups with intentional broad strokes that accomplish nothing more than to polarize people which is sort of what you were doing by suggesting that Liberals hate America. It seems like you and Peter King are trying to use the same hate filled argument to appeal to those who get off on hating.

    Please show something during the hearings that stirred up any hate. Personally, I came away with a more favorable opinion of Muslims and their religion.
    I did come away with a less favorable (if that's possible) opinion of two Dem. Texans, Sheila Jackson and Al Green.

    Horse****. You did that very thing about 10 posts ago when you stated that anyone that thinks identifying the reality of radicals using Islam to recruit is nothing more than a bigot who hates Muslims. The fact is that the intent of the hearing had nothing to do with condemning Muslims or Islam but rather addressed the very real problem of extremists USING Islam to recruit.

    Nah...you dont 'judge' people...

    It's interesting how often you try to turn things around to accuse those pesky Joos of terrorism.

    Where are these imaginary Joo terrorist groups, and who are they killing?

    Perhaps Rep. King can next hold hearings on how Italians are all secretly conspiring in one giant organized crime syndicate or how all British dentists are conspiring to drive up the cost of dentistry or how all Gay people are conspiring to turn everyone in America Gay?

    My point is that there was absolutley no reason at all to hold hearings on this subject and that the root cause for convening the hearings was to make people wonder about Muslims loyalty to America in the same way that Sen. McCarthy held hearings to judge Americans in the 50s loyalty to America.

    There are many of them, and they are absolutely NOT liberals. They do not advance liberal ideology, they do not adhere to liberal principles and they do not understand liberalism in the least. Rather than being liberals, they are simply reactionary leftists who are conforming to the rhetoric of other reactionary leftists.

    If they were liberals, they would be at the top of the list assailing the least liberal ideology on the face of the Earth, not acting as its chief apologist.

    So angry? How come? Are you carrying around some pent up dislike for something? If King's hearing was truly meant to discover how Americans are being recruited to commit terrorism why did he solely focus on Muslims? Why not include the anti-abortion terrorist recruiters who justified the murder of Dr. Tiller in Kansas and are now threatening the doctor there who is attempting to open a new abortion clinic? Why not include all the "militias" that are calling for "2nd Amendment" solutions to American political issues?

    King's sole focus was on Muslims. My belief is that one does not discourage anyone from terrorism by singling out one religious group only and making the focus seem like it's THE problem.

    Of course you are right, and at one time a person who called himself a "Liberal" was indeed liberal in the classical sense, and likely genuinely 'progressive' as well.

    But the Left has usurped the word and now the 'Left' and 'liberal' have pretty much become interchangeable.

    During the Cold War the left was defending Communism while calling themselves 'liberal', referring to Communism as a 'lifestyle' and suggesting that those living under Communism were doing so by choice. Even now, despite the truth being out there for all to see they'll still, like then, defend despots like Fidel Castro.

    Charles Krauthammer, following a minor dust-up with a PBS commentator, said recently that Liberals think of Conservatives as Evil and Conservatives think of Liberals, i.e. the Left, as Stupid.

    I think there is a lot of truth in that. Note the way they want to identify Conservatives with fascists and how Conservatives can see they not only don't understand debt and budgets, but have no apparent interest in the subjects. They appear to be, at least in the realm of finance and politics, quite stupid.

    All good ideas, Jakiejakester. Perhaps they can hold the hearings on Islamic terrorism, abortion clinics, and Constitutional flaws all at the same time, with Nancy Pelosi presiding.
