    The KKK and Jihadists are different sides of the same coin. We should be going after the KKK and all gangs with the same vigor as any other domestic threat.

    Maybe we should just eliminate them both. Every last one of them.

    No, we are at war with religious extremism. That extremism just so happens to be Islamic.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Many Americans though want to fight Islamic extremism with Christian extremism.

    Hey, that's not a very nice thing to say. Some of my best friends are nouns. Though I did have my butt kicked once by an adverb.

    Those that would have difficulties to prescribe to the oppression of sharia law patrol officers are people that believe value freedom more than oppression. Those can be (and are not limited to): Shallow Muslims, Atheists, Agnostics, or people from other religions.

    If some idiots want oppression because they are afraid the uncertainty of freedom, then I do not see why should be stand between these masochistic tendencies as long as it is voluntary? People suffer far worse with masochistic tendencies and are free to do so if it is voluntary.
    The problem being that obedience to that religion also requires the imposition of it on others. You aren't really given a choice on dhimmitude.



    We aren't "At War with Islam". However, pretending that Islamists have somehow perverted Islam is equally untrue - theirs is a legitimate brand of Islam, if some of their actions are difficult to justify within the case history.

    And we ought to be at war with that religious extremism as well. No extremism ought to be acceptable, no matter what imaginary friend is behind it.
