    I find it interesting how you keep calling people moronic, yet you actually said "their cause becomes more legitimate", as if there were ever ANY legitimacy to mass murder.

    Have you ever considered becoming a liberal?

    What's your point? Are you saying that talking about the consequences of our actions = racism? Are you saying that burning a Koran doesn't prove anti-American terrorist organizations right?

    1. I haven't called anyone moronic, I've called their posts moronic.
    2. By legitimate, I mean legitimate to them and other Muslims who they are trying to recruit (i.e. when we don't burn Korans, their claims that Americans hate Muslims aren't legitimate at all; when we do burn Korans, their claims are more legitimate because burning a Koran is a show of the hatred they claim that we have)

    If you only showed the same level of outrage over the actual killings as you do the burning of the book, you might get somewhere.

    As is, you are fussing over the tom cat pooping in your flower bed right after the saber toothed tiger ate your family.

    I haven't showed outrage at the burning of the book. I've showed outrage at people with poor reading comphrension.

    Nonetheless, I'm the type of person who looks at the whole picture and isn't afraid to take responsibility for my actions. As a result, I'm not afraid to attribute responsibility to my fellow Americans whose actions add fuel to the fire. You don't taunt Charles Mason so why would you taunt al-Qaeda?

    You seem to be caught up in the myth that you can only blame one side or the other. Good luck with that. I'm not playing that game.

    EDIT: It's telling that you can't debate my actual arguments. Your only strategy is to go after me personally.

    What I am responding to is your knee jerk reaction which takes the form of transferring responsibility for the action away from the perpetrators and on to an external source. The "blame us before blaming them" approach is certainly predictable among many apologists who are so overly concerned with cultural self-blame that they cannot see the big picture. The reflexive need to condemn actions arising in the west in order to act as apologist for Islamist attrocities is evident in your legitimizing the mass murders like you did, and the matter isn't that one can only "blame one side or another, it's that you have focused on assigning blame on the trivial rather than on the essential.

    As far as the contention of going after you personally, I would remind you that when you come at people with accusations of being moronic, you aren't exactly playing with kid gloves, yourself. I will repeat the invitation to embrace liberalism, however, just in case the possiblity exists that you might do so.

    What you don't seem to understand is that I haven't transferred responsibility. I hold both parties responsible for their actions and the effects of their actions. The reason I have focused on the book burner is because that is the part 1. People keep harping on. 2. Many people are ignoring.

    There are people who are crazy enough to kill others because someone has burned a book - we've known this for a long time. Therefore, it is stupid to go ahead and burn the book they hold in highest esteem when you know that such actions piss off such crazy murderous people.

    You are not acknowledging that it is unwise and dangerous to taunt crazy terrorists and murderers - which is exactly what burning a Koran is doing.

    Acknowledging that it is stupid and dangerous to taunt murderers =/= being an apologist.

    Its probably a good idea for Democrats to take a couple days off from defending Radical Islam--The Only Religon ever Defended by The Left.........

    ......let this blow over......and then resume blaming cartoonists who depict Allah, Preachers who burn Korans, and above all else.......Americans who stand up for Freedom.

    the book burning didn't harm anyone and was the man's constitutional right.

    Sorry, if criticism of your religion elicits a response of killing random people, I would say the critic wasn't the problem here

    earlier you wrote "If morons in this country didn't walk around burning Korans and proving Islamic extremists right (who claim that the U.S. hates Muslims), some of this stuff could be avoided. "

    I am pointing out "if swarthy people could just keep their hands off the women racists identify as their own, and proving the racists right, some of this stuff could be avoided. "

    The point is, that no one need to respect the holy objects of another, and that such a demand points to issues with the offended (because the demand is completely unreasonable to begin with). Also, such acts of disrespect, to a chunk of wood pulp, could never justify murdering random people, that had absolutely nothing to do with the act in question
