All opinions can be voiced, not all are valid. Ignorance does not enter in. Opposing world views are at the core of the matter.
Your tolerance is beyond questioned. I don't even see it in this hemisphere.
I agree that all opinions can be voiced, but to claim that ignorance doesn't enter into it is about as dumb a thing as I've ever heard.

Oh, and a question - is feigned outrage a separate buzzword from just plain outrage?

You misuse the word then. There is nothing about Prager that equals this definition. He is educated, he is informed, he is nowledgeable, he is aware.

Ahhh ... semantics.

I have to question educated and informed as descriptors of someone who would even suggest a Representative swearing in on the Koran 'will be doing more damage to the unity of America and to the value system that has formed this country than the terrorists of 9-11', or that such an act 'undermines' American civilization, or that such an act 'emboldens Muslim terrorists'.

Perhaps in a hyper-technical sense ignorant is the wrong word, but as far as common usage goes I'm not so sure. Stupid (b : given to unintelligent decisions or acts; c : lacking intelligence or reason) doesn't quite fit either.

I'm inclined to go with my original choice, however.

(smiles) I totally understand what you're saying here. The people here, friend and foe (politically speaking), do quite often feel like family while providing a certain amount of anonymity so the gloves can be removed. It is a place to let out that feeling that arises when we watch the news and yell at the TV because they don't represent our point of view. Like I said, fun and dysfunction all in one place!
That's a pretty fair summing-up :)

I know the definition, silly.

My question was whether combining it with outraged counts as a separate buzzword.

Look, I get it. You have to elevate my disdain for Prager into outrage to make me appear unreasonable. You have to accuse me of feigning the outrage because no reasonable person could disagree with someone you agree with. You have turn attention away from Prager's intolerance, so you try and make it a question of my tolerance.

Well of course you would.
Like I noted, tolerance is not your strong suit but your are great at the judging thing.

I just had to post this:
Radio talk show host Dennis Prager told The Daily Caller that he believes American Muslims can revitalize Islamic civilization.

“America will nurture a new Muslim — one who can believe in Muhammad and the Quran but who abandons belief in a Shariah-based state and affirms the primary American value of individual liberty, which has not been a normative Islamic value,” Prager argued.

“We already have such Muslims in America. Needless to say, the mainstream media ignore these Muslims, just as they do conservative blacks.”

But I am sure you will find this fitting in with your definition of ignorant.

Sure seems that way to me, even if you didn't come right out and say it. Why would you pretend to tell me what you WOULDN'T do if you weren't trying to imply that's what I was doing?

This post of you addressed to lyndi, She clueless and have a not clue about (She and many of Sheeople should question Authority) this question should be asked by everyone who vote those into high office ' Those Men with reason but without/lack of moral will do what to it nation and to world ?" Look what warmongering Bushjr & co did to US and world!

John Stockwell, former CIA official (from his books, speeches...)

k"It is the function of the CIA to keep the world unstable, and to propagandize and teach the American people to hate, so we will let the Establishment spend any amount of money on arms.

Enemies are necessary for the wheels of the U.S. military machine to turn.

The major function of secrecy in Washington is to keep the U.S. people ... from knowing what the nation's leaders are doing.

Hmmm.
So, he got about 4.9 million more votes.

A hefty portion of those votes may have come from the 3 million women who now live in poverty under Obama and maybe the other 1.9 million are their adult children who also live in poverty because there are no jobs. Or maybe it's just the random 1 in every 6 Americans living in poverty who have come to rely on the welfare state and they're too scared or misguided or uninformed to have cast their vote for the better candidate.

We may never know but Obama is a happy boy. His dream of a welfare state is coming along nicely.

What Prager wants for Muslims, and for Blacks, is a sense of self loathing.

He knows exactly what he's doing as he pontificates.

If you people keep talking about him, I'll say more.

I'll discuss his misogyny, his hatefulness, his defense of the tobacco companies, his frequent decompensation and rage, heck, the guy's a mess.

He once was nicknamed "too much gas Prager." I'll tell you why.

You've got your story and you're obviously sticking to it, but no - I don't find that claim ignorant.

I didn't pretend. I told you what I wouldn't do. What I was saying is that I wouldn't be outraged by someone saying that a Jew didn't have a right to say what was American or something to that effect and I wouldn't feign outrage either. Because I am sure there are plenty who would say that. They would be wrong. I don't think it is because they are ignorant but because they come at things from wildly different viewpoint than mine.
I happen to believe that America was founded on a Judeo Christian worldview. I understand that there are those who disagree. I happen to think they are wrong as I know they do me. It is what it is.
