America was founded on the principle of individual liberties. There is a reason the Founding Fathers made freedom of speech and expression the First Amendment. It is also of note they made the right to keep and bear arms the Second! Freedom of speech separates America from totalitarian collective communist or sharia controlled states. Wherever freedom of speech is prohibited, tyranny follows.
Now we have a religion that is angry in the middle of the internet generation. Any outrage immediately sets off a firestorm of protest and killing. they are hypersensitive. Imagine passing off a fatwa against a cartoonist that dares to draw mohommed? We keep dancing around the issues. it is ok for them to burn us, kill us, rape our women, have honor killings and they get upset about some wacko preacher burns a koran. It is ok for them to sneak into a settlement in Israel, stab and kill an Israili family to death in their sleep is somehow ok?http://seanlinnane.blogspot.com/2011/03/war-without-end-part-i.html Nothing is said, we as a society has lost our spine. we are afraid to speak the truth for fear of offending somebody. Our own sense of politeness is being used against us in the culture wars and we as a society are losing. We are afraid to confront the savages. they know that all they have to do is riot, burn, kill and we excuse it. When are we going to treat the ragheads as people with equal responsibility. Now we excuse their behavior as if was a petulant child. if Christianity or Judism or the buddist did the things that the muslim have done, there would be condemnation from the world. From Islam, they get a pass. This is the problem, and there is no repercussion for their poor behavior. this has been excused for generations, since the 1970's with the pan arabic nationalist movement that was sponsored by the soviets as a proxy against the west.
