    Senate to Hold Hearings on “Anti-Muslim Bigotry

    Senate to Hold Hearings on “Anti-Muslim Bigotry”




    On a day when Islamic jihadists exploded a bomb in Jerusalem that murdered at least one woman and wounded thirty, and when Islamic jihadists opened fire on and killed two Christians outside a church in Pakistan, Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL) announced that he was going to hold hearings on the rise in “anti-Muslim bigotry.”

    Durbin, of course, was retaliating for the hearings recently conducted by Rep. Peter King (R-NY), who himself bowed to politically correct pressure and dropped several witnesses that he had originally announced his intention to call, including ex-Muslim human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali and terror analyst Walid Phares.

    Not only was the timing of Durbin’s announcement ironic, but also the fact that his retaliatory hearings were unnecessary in the first place. King, after all, gave a prime platform at his hearings to the weepy Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), whose pilgrimage to Mecca was paid for with $13,350 from the Muslim American Society, the Muslim Brotherhood ‘s chief operating arm in the U.S.

    Ellison used the bully pulpit King gave him to paint a lurid picture of Muslim victimhood, all the while saying nothing (of course) about the sharp increase in jihad terror plots in this country over the last two years. How can Durbin top that?

    Liberals don't trivialize the threat of radical Islam, they prioritize it. Liberalism is a collectivist religion. Collectivism means sameness. That means you have the same money and the same power. The greatest skewing of power in the world is the one Superpower. So the United States is currently a greater threat to a worldwide collectivism then radical Islam is. Think about it, who do they attack for money? Those who have the most. Who do they attack for power? The one with the most.

    Mostly for the votes, but some of the silly fuckers actually believe that more hugs are the answer.

    More hugs is a more rational thought than thinking you can defeat a concept through warmongering.

    Not a country, a government, or a dictator, but a concept, and both sides of the aisle fall for it.

    I don't need to see statistics on american education to realize how bad it is, all I need to hear people talk about is "winning the war on terror."

    You do have to wonder.... You hear the left constantly refer to Christianity as a "radical religion" but you'll never hear the left say the same of Islam.

    I think it's a poor excuse for reverse psychology. It scares them shitless so they try and minimize it. If they say it enough they might start to believe it themselves.

    Remember how much money Obama spent on the campaign trail to prove to everyone how christian he was? He wouldn't have done that if it weren't a necessity to get votes. The most important aspect for both parties is that the person they voted for has the same religion as them.

    Stance on issues, experience, morals, those things are all secondary to your president praying to the same god you pray to.
