    44% in poll OK limits on rights of Muslims - The Boston Globe

    Researchers also found that respondents who paid more attention to television news were more likely to fear terrorist attacks and support limiting the rights of Muslim Americans.

    So, I'm guessing since they're Muslims that their rights no longer apply to them? I have feeling that similar to the Japanese during WWII, we'll have internment camps being wanted next by some people.

    This is very dangerous about how quickly people who don't think want to take Constitution rights away from others.

    Disclaimer: Note for those so people don't get confused: The poll is from 2004.

    My other question is why people are so willingly to practically repeat history. Knowing full well how it didn't turn out well the first time.

    The politically based fear mongering of the fraidy cat right works on many.

    And that's the sad thing. I wasn't surprised by this poll either.

    I guess there's hope. The usual right wing trolls have not posted their usual hate and fear - maybe deep down in their soul they know ... silly of me, of course not, they only care about themselves.

    It would be highly hypocritical to talk about defending the Constitution from things like Health Care and then demanding that a group of people's rights be taken away in the same breath.

    Apparently 44% of the polling data has forgotten about that troublesome document that ensures religious freedom for all. If they want to limit the rights of Muslims Americans than I want to propose banning the Christmas tree and the Star of David.

    Naah just do away with the tax exempt status of churches.

    That is in no way against the constitution.
