I want to point out our political elites are full of crap. France has raided Mosques and found weapons. This was done by a Socialist government to media yawns. Of course this is the same group that Obama lectures us falsely has always been a part of America. Obama seems to forget that if slaves adopted Christianity and regularly hyms with the theme of the Exodus.
There is a demented view from leftists that Blacks and Native Americans should hate Christian because their religion was imposed on them. In fact when you meet either they are frequently the most devout Christians. If you speak to an African Anglican you are likely to find zero nostalgia for Islam and no obsession with Palestinians. In the case of some the obsession borders on a mental health pathology. If we had depoliticized mental health the obsession with Jews and Palestine would be treated as a mental health defect.
Now some of us have met knuckle scrapping racists. The oddball idiot who blames every ill in America on those darn N word. They also blame Jews and those gays for every other problem in America. Lefties are one step removed but very similar to cartoon rednecks. They frequently espouse the one percent rule for Blacks. Yet Jews are transmogrified into Europeans with any miscegenation or bizzare Crank Khaxar theories.
Lefties rail about Israel as an apartheid state. They do this while foisting a fake ethnicity creating judenfrei enclaves run by Jim Crow sharia law. Of course if you discuss any of the actual historical colonialism and abuse of minorities by Muslims you are some kind of Islamaphobe.
The truth is none of us would have problems with Muslums if the entire faith were like Stephen Schwartz. An Islam that respected others and was intergrated into a wider world. Unfortunately we have certifiable lefties who stoke bizarre victimization theories and anti history by lefties. Muslims themselves are not served by a steady diet of preposterous victim hood especially with a people they have historically abused.
Then again lefties turn a blind eye to other regions where Islam is in conflict with other faiths. Those same Hindus who lived at peace with Jews, Christians and others magically turn intollerant when Islam is added. There are plenty of regions where Islam comes into conflict with other faiths. How do members of a religion that does not respect others and even has bloody conflicts within the faith become victims in leftist fantasy land that is less real than Dungeons and Dragons.
If lefties were really genuinely concerned with Muslims they would celebrate those like Stephen Schwartz who respect others. The essence of Western Civ is simple. Have your own ideas, respect those of the next person and don't take crap that isn't yours. On all counts Ducky fails as he favors Statism. Of course now that the Socialist government of
France has raised Mosques and found weapons we will get some excuse.
Sorry but Islam has created new issues for society. Religious sanctuary no longer can exist when a faith uses houses of worship to store weapons and incite criminal acts of violence. If anything the findings in France back those who favor law enforcement scrutiny of these same sites. Civil rights are not a suicide pact.
