"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
Dave Weigel at Slate reported from an awards dinner Tuesday night for the leftish Arab American Instiute about the crowd’s discomfort with the notion that the Boston assailants would turn out to “look like them.” (That, I think, would mean Middle Eastern and Muslim, although AAI president James Zogby describes himself as a Maronite Catholic.) They tried not to say it out loud, he said, but then CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, there to receive an award, said it for them.
“How many of us feel this burden of association and hope beyond hope that this doesn’t turn out to be what it might be?” said Amanpour. “No conclusions yet.” Read more: here
Amidst the carnage that was Boston this week, I’m sure all of America was desperately “burdened”, that this attack wasn’t from any of those “peaceful” Muslims we keep hearing about . . . . or did that even enter our minds? Just an obscure thought – I’m guessing most Americans were pretty sure this was a terrorist attack from our “peaceful” Muslims friends. Just a wild guess, you understand.
Liberals are full of such irrelevant, useless nonsense that they make themselves irrelevant.
Amanpour’s was “burdened” with fear that these killings were produced by middle Eastern appearing, Muslim males. How distraught she must now be.
But it does make me wonder how Liberals can become so willfully bind to the truth. Islam has sworn many times, to kill Americans and destroy the West — yet Libs choose to dismiss that as a “few” radicalized Muslim (who has happen to numbered in the thousands, if not hundreds of thousands).
As a nation and individuals, we’d be must wiser to accept the truth so we can intelligent and diligently deal with it and not contort ourselves into foolish pretzels, to appease the unappease-able. Islam isn’t even a friend to Muslims who don’t ‘tote the Sharia line’ . . . and so, they won’t be a friends to Americans nor the world in general.
