The thread title is misleading. Irrational fear is not wisdom or being vigilant. It's stupid.
But Janet Napolitano was attacked by conservatives for warning that right-wing militias may try to recruit veterans back from Iraq and Afghanistan. And it's important to remember that the Oklahoma City Bombing was done by a Marine Corps veteran with extremely far-right politics.
And if that was too long ago, in 2008 the Christian Patriot movement in Michigan known as "Hutaree" were arrested for a plot to kill police officers and civilians with illegal firearms and explosives.
So Muslims aren't the only group - religious, ethnic, or political - out to attack the freedoms and liberties we enjoy in this nation.
Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
you have simply edited the question to make it more pallitable.
the fact of the matter is, you are trying desperately & fruitlessly to defend an indefensable argument...that prejudice against all Muslims due to the actions of a very small minority, is legitimate.
