Let's Have a Conversation about Race

Liberals love Barack Obama because he's half black (and half white), and because of that he's (by default) not a racist.

Liberals hate George Zimmerman because he's half white (and half Peruvian), and because of that he's (by default) a racist.

If all of this makes perfect sense to you -- you're progressive.
Progressives continually whine about the need for an "honest dialogue about race," which, of course, always turns out to make white people confess how deeply racist they really are and enlightened minorities share their experiences of oppression.
Reverend Jeremiah Wright, 'man of the cloth'
Half black - can't possibly be a racist...unless the white half takes over.

From a personal perspective: 

All of the American soldiers and sailors who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan remind me of me when I was a young man. 

None of the dead gang members in America remind me of me...

I must be a racist.

Review of the News (Nidal Hasan Edition)

A Review of the News for August 6, 2013

Nidal Hasan - Jihadi - Edition

A Firing Squad is Too Good for Him

On November 5, 2009, U.S. Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, Texas, killing people in the name of Islam, Mohammad and jihad. At the end of the massacre, thirteen soldiers were dead with 30 more people wounded. A fourteenth victim was claimed that day as one of the slain soldiers was pregnant.

We immediately saw an outpouring of concern for Major Hasan from the White House. 

Hasan's court-martial is slated to begin today, Tuesday, August 6. In statements released to by his attorney, John Galligan, Hasan renounced the citizenship of the country whose armed services he served. In the process, he became a hero to jihadis across the globe.

Support for Major Hasan

Following the shootings, Anwar al-Awlaki, heir to the Osama bin Laden network, posted on a now-defunct website:
Nidal Hassan is a hero. He is a man of conscience who could not bear living the contradiction of being a Muslim and serving in an army that is fighting against his own people.... Any decent Muslim cannot live, understanding properly his duties towards his Creator and his fellow Muslims, and yet serve as a US soldier. The U.S. is leading the war against terrorism which in reality is a war against Islam...."
If the court-marshal should sentence him to death,
he should be sewed up inside a pig's carcass and
Not Islamophobia -- Justice.

But while we're on the subject

Mohammed's comments (as captured in the Quran) resonate throughout the ignorant Muslim world (an estimated 40+ percentage of Moslems are illiterate). 

If Islam ruled the planet women would be the biggest losers (besides not having bacon - and that impacts everyone).
  • Women would be far more compliant to men's wishes even if they had to beat it into them. And if women wanted to complain, they'd simply to to their local mullah and voice their opinion before being stoned to death.
  • Rape would be a thing of the past because it's functionally impossible for a woman to accuse a man in Islam.
  • Female genital mutilation would be the rule.
It's this sort of glorious future that MAJ Nidal Malik Hasan was pushing for when he decided to become a hero of Islam and murder unarmed, innocent people that he served with in the military, including a pregnant woman.
