Profile Muslims!

Especially those Muslims who visit radical areas and show support for Muslim holy war, infiltrate all mosques to check for anti American sermons and end the refugee program which rushes Muslims from terrorist areas, even though the Muslims themselves believe in Sharia and not the Constitution and things like freedom of speech.

End the refugee program.

Shut down terror mosques.

That's easy - deport Muslims.

The criminal element within Islam requires a police state and not freedom of movement and association. We have too many open events, sports, malls, shopping centers that Muslims can exploit.

Perhaps if the people who were here a long time ago had better immigration policies a whole lot of things would be different, but that's not where we are, huh?
Its a classic red herring for you to claim that in a nation built by immigrants, the root cause of terrorism on American soil is unchecked immigration of people of certain "ethnicity".

Didn't you hear the bombs?

Didn't you see people screaming and running for their lives?

What Timmy did certainly was a heinous crime, but I don't think he had in mind slowly taking over the U.S. and assimilating the citizens into islam.

Interesting thing that I saw on the news this AM regarding these pressure cooker bombs. The way they explode, the shrapnel travels faster than the speed of sound so you are already hit before you hear the explosion.

the difference between timmy and and islamic radicals is that timmy did not have a religious cult of 1.3 billion people world wide simpatizing with his actions and dedicated to the destruction of western civilization, people in western countries need to wake up before it's too late.

As the hunt for the bombers culminated in a dramatic shoot-out, it emerged that Tamerlan Tsarnaev had been interviewed by US officials in 2011 because the Russian government was concerned over his ties to “radical Islam”.
There were fears that Tamerlan, who was killed while trying to flee police on Friday evening, was ready to travel to the Caucasus to join “underground groups”. However, the 26-year-old was released after the FBI assessed he had no connection to terrorist activity.

Do you recall reading in history class anything about radical muslims coming to these shores in 1492? Didn't think so.

During the 1790's after we became a nation we had problems with the Barbary Pirates (North African Muslims) A treaty arose from that, The Treaty Of Tripoli. You might want to read up on it.

I know plenty of Muslims and have had some business with many. Never had a problem, they were the most humble, honest people I dealt with back in the day.

The G.W. Bush crowd who wanted war in Iraq was about the same percentage of overall Christians Americans as Muslims who carried out 9/11. A few, well placed idiots is all it takes.

During the time I spent in Sicily I made a great friend from Milano who was going to law school in Catania.

3 great jokes he told me were:

What's the Sicilian national bird? The housefly

Why do Sicilian men grow mustaches? To look just like their mothers.

Why does the United States have blacks and Italy has Sicilians? The U.S. got first pick.

"Forgetting their own proud resistance to the coercive campaigns of Catholic Spain, the English failed to realize that the Powhatans were no more likely than they were to commit cultural suicide by submitting to an alien religion. In 1622 the Powhatans rejected both the increased conversion efforts and the continuing territorial expansion of the colonists, correctly perceiving them as a two-pronged assault on their unique identity and future as a people. The English murder of a leading prophet of Indian resistance was the particularly arrogant atrocity that triggered the 1622 massacre. The Powhatans converted to English terror tactics in defiance of the Christian god, attacking unarmed civilians as a logical necessity because battles with armored musketeers in the earlier war had so reduced their forces.

The 1622 massacre inspired a new genre of anti-Indian hate literature, primarily because one of the victims was George Thorpe—the first acknowledged English martyr in America. The pious but misguided Thorpe had tried to eradicate native beliefs with kindness, making him all the more dangerous to the Powhatans. In London his death was described in gory detail, becoming a potent symbol of Christian “charity” that had been rejected and reviled. Thorpe had influential friends, many of them writers, including Ben Jonson, Michael Drayton, John Donne, Samuel Purchas, and Robert Brooke. Several of them denounced the Powhatans for their “perfidious treachery” and “savage, wild,[and] degenerate”deeds, while not commenting on their complexions. They were lumped with other “Out-laws of Humanity” across the racial spectrum—papists, heretics, and infidels—who opposed Anglican orthodoxy and killed innocent Protestants. Donne, dean of St. Paul’s Cathedral, specifically compared the Powhatans to the Gunpowder plotters, labeling all such enemies of the state and the state religion as devious and malignant “Monsters”—men with an “Angel’s Face” but “Serpent’s Tail.”

It is not surprising that those Jacobean condemnations are eerily similar to anti-terrorist rhetoric today. In every age, the greater the power differential between oppressors and the oppressed, the more likely (and logical) it is for the weaker group to employ various types of “unconventional” violence against the stronger. European codifiers of international law declared the innovations of insurgency illegal because they challenged the monopoly that their large, technologically sophisticated “regular” armies had in committing “legal” slaughter to further “justifiable” conquests. Scholars must analyze all violence objectively and precisely to avoid perpetuating that old double standard, which continues to differentiate between “barbarous” guerrillas who are vicious and “legitimate” troops who are heroic in a biased Judeo-Christian context."

Duke, do you ever READ what you cut and paste?

Or is this just another example of the brown people being sainted and me being the white devil?

You are a traitor to the land, people and culture that made you, and one day, you will meet your ends.

Great post!

It would seem that Duke sees those of an opposing opinion as the White Devil.

Whites (and American institutions) must acknowledge historical racism to show themselves redeemed by it, but once they acknowledge it, they lose moral authority over everything having to do with race, equality, social justice, poverty and so on.
The authority they lose transfers to the 'victims' of historical racism and becomes their great power in society. This is why white guilt is quite literally the same thing as Black power.

This is the source of Obama's great power and why liberals never really question his actions, no matter how immoral, unconstitutional or unethical they are.

Duke, Che, Reader, MNFP1979 all almost always see the "White Devil" in nearly all issues discussed on this forum.
