I smell another Bush-Basher making a fool of himself.

Galt speaks to the Muslim Suicide sickness of today and you run your mouth off about what happened a thousand years ago.

Let's see if you can slip Slavery into this argument, too.
European Colonialism in Africa? How about somehow finding a way to blame the Jews, eh?

Go for it, Little Man.

I used to tell people to keep their opinions about Reagan to themselves until I left if they didn't have anything good to say. They always did.
So now we know which 1 of us is fabricating the truth & distorting history, hmmm!

really?? tell me do you think Iraq was better off with Saddam or the sectarian violence, lack of infrastructure, ethnic cleansing and refugees that they have now?
are we better off without Saddam in power?
is the Middle East better off without Saddam in power?
Did removing Saddam make the Middle East more stable?
The Kurds are an ethnic group that Saddam was routinely gassing.

Add onto the fact he was absolutely brutal to his neighboring countries and you have a Leader that no one misses.

Eric Racist Holder and the Magic Negro wanted to allow these Islamic Trash into America but Congress told them where to stick it.

The bas turds wanted to find one of their "pathways to citizenship" for their Muslim Brothers, too, beside illegal Mexican trash. They wanted to, say, place Mustafa into an Illinois Prison, serve a light sentence and then be able to apply for citizenship.

Americans do not want to live next door to the Magic Negro's Brothers and Congress knew this.

Before Constantine, Christians had been persecuted for 2-1/2 centuries. The Great Persecution was betwee 303 to 311. Christian buildings and homes were torn down and Christians were arrested, tortured, mutilated, burned, starved, and condemned to gladiatorial contests to amuse spectators.

The Great Persecution ended in 311. In 313, Constantine, the Edict of Milan, returned confiscated Church property and granted tolerance to all religions.

By 1200, most of Europe were Christians. Muslims had taken control of Jerusalem in the eighth century and, by the 11th century, Christians were severely restricted or denied passage to the Holy Land.

This led to the Crusades.

Christians and Muslims go way back. But you're confusing Constantine with the Crusades.

True. Just look at the pundits snapping at the heels of our former Chief Diplomat Hillary Clinton for activating her Twitter account. "Hillary Clinton is now on Twitter.

This woman looks for trouble, I swear.

As has been widely reported with the breathless rush of an alien sighting, Clinton’s Twitter profile reads,“Wife, mom, lawyer, women & kids advocate, FLOAR, FLOTUS, US Senator, SecState, author, dog owner, hair icon, pantsuit aficionado, glass ceiling cracker, TBD…”

Funny and coy. God help her."... "I’m in no mood for another round of small-minded men with big forums who make a sport of bashing the broad. We went through that during the Democratic primary in 2008, as was masterfully chronicled by Rebecca Traister in her book, Big Girls Don’t Cry. If these guys think Clinton’s Twitter account is news, wait’ll they see how women — including those of us old enough to be their mothers — use social media to call out sexism this time around if she runs for president."
"...There are millions of Americans — particularly women — who are willing to vote for Obama and for Clinton. We don’t see them as opposing forces, as the old vs. the new. Their life stories contribute to the same exhilarating narrative of hope and change.

The majority of American voters were thrilled to elect the first African-American president.

The question looms: How many of them want to make history again?" Check this out: http://www.nationalmemo.com/hillary-tweets-pu...

Hog Thighs Hillary is NOT a great historical figure. She's a Benghazi Liar. A Bosnia Liar. A National Healthcare Liar. A Liar.

She's a cheap, small time Bubba leftover who will not be remembered for much at all. Not only is her physique inflated but her entire persona is a turd wrapped in Cotton Candy.

MSNBC has a corporate mentality that fails to understand how to make programming interesting.
They could put out the same propaganda message to a much larger audience if they hired some on-air talent that was skilled and personable.
Going from Mr. Ed to Chris Hayes was going from dull to duller.
Galt wants MSNBC to hire bleach blonde bubbled heads with low cut shirts so he has another channel to watch & drool other than Fox.
