Muslim = Lunatic is no more true than Christian = Sane. As many here have noted, and I think the majority of Americans believe (no, I don't have a link) any religion can be twisted to express extremist and hateful practice. Yes, there is vocal minority that believes Muslim=Radical Muslim Extremist. I simply do not believe that is the majority of Americans.

Crazy is as crazy does - whether its christian, muslim, hindu, or [name your religion here] crazy.

Well until Danny boy fires up the jet or some teams start to make some moves nothing has changed. I'm guessing after tomorrow afternoon the NFL news will be jumping and stay pretty hot for about a week.

Of course its also true that tea partiers are raciest, which by the way is inherent in all white people, even the black tea partiers:

Alleged Black Tea Party Protester Calls Blacks Sell Outs and Rants Against White People | Video | TheBlaze.com

So sure they are ridiculous and raciest, i just dont know if i would call Glenn Beck or the tea partiers wacko in tandem of describing a person who just went on a 70+ person killing spree.
Hey there bud, racism isn't monopolized by whites. Asians and Arabs don't think to highly of blacks or whites. Neither do many latinos.

Re: My Thoughts On The Glenn Beck Rally

^ I was being completely sarcastic. The statement all white people are racist is just as true as the tea party is racist..... neither statement is true. I was alluding to quotes from the link i posted in which a black man goes on a rant at the South Central LA Tea Party rally. Its just sad when i hear people call the tea party racist. To me its just as ignorant as some of the things the guy in my link said.

But my main point was that i didnt think it was appropriate for lump Glenn Beck and the tea party in the wacko group while at the same time using that term to describe someone that just blew a bomb off and then systematically killed 60 or so kids and young adults at a youth camp.
