I see you have a military ISP. I suggest you resign from the service now--you are unfit to pretend to be defendindg our country and our COnstitution with that kind of attitude.
You are a disgrace.
You think that a soldier does not have a right to his own opinion?
He should have all the rights that you have, maybe more.
Your hatred for soldiers is showing.

A soldier has every right to his own opinion. When, however, that opinion shows his contempt for America and the Constituion he has sworn to uphold, his fitness for service is questionable.

Or do you think there was no problem with allowing Major Hasan to stay in the Army after his jihadist sympathies became known? The only difference between him and a Klansman is the religion they each pretend to follow.

You are deluded. Hasan is not a member of the Klan and the Klan is not anti-American.
Your premise and your comparisons are false.

By your standards if all Klan members are un-American then all Muslims must be un-American.

Klan members are anti-American, no question about it. Their anti-Americanism shows when they commit acts designed to intimidate and harass other citizens. It doesn't matter if they claim to be Christian or wrap themselves in the flag: they hate America.

The same goes for any other members of a terrorist group, Muslim or not. You are too stupid to realize this, but there are many Muslim soldiers who serve honorably in the US military.
