 Looking up that phrase "preach peace when weak; preach war when strong" - only three references come up in a search engine: 1. ME Forum - Daniel Pipes. Pipes is a known Islamophobe who amongst a number of his cohorts in the pro-Israeli neoconservative movement, praised and sympathized with Norway terrorist Anders Breivik for his Oslo bombing outrage and the shooting rampage of 69 kids a few years back.  2. PJ Tatler - On its list of contributors is Michael Ledeen -...
 There is no HARD evidence with a verifiable chain of custody or certified time stamp, that *any* religious extremists successfully boarded those 4 airliners. No ticket purchase records, no cash or credit card transactions, no seat assignments with Arab names, no *verifiable* photographic or film/video evidence of any of the alleged 19 going through security on that morning at the two airports in question. Everything we were told about that was single sourced or hearsay....
As in "factually wrong" or "correct but morally wrong"? Discrimination against Muslims in the United States has a long history dating back to the early 1900s. Although successive Washington administrations flirted with Islamists overseas from the 1950s to the 1970s as a counterweight to communists and nationalists, Muslims within the US continued to be viewed with suspicion, which ramped up in 1972 when US President Richard Nixon inaugurated “Operation Boulder,” giving law...
The original question: "Should the 9/11 museum drop all mention of Islamic terrorism"?   Americans have been taught/indoctrinated since the late 1940s that "all terrorists are Muslim and all Muslims are terrorists". To include the term "Islamic" is therefore redundant.   Regarding the attacks of 9/11, quite the most amazing thing happened, and nobody has ever commented on it publicly. If we are to believe the official conspiracy theory of 9/11 - this is what is...
 Not necessarily.
I support this person's right to freedom of speech (while we still have it)... even though the content - imho - is obnoxious and hate-inspired.  One thing that stands out re. the religious "Christian" right - is why are they so freaking obsessed with gays? They quote one arbitrary verse out of Leviticus until purple in the face and frothing at the bit -  even though the original wording suggests that it was 'pedophilia', not homosexuality, that was being referred to....
"Americans had better watch what they are saying". Ari Fleischer, former White House press secretary, September 2001.
 What are your thoughts on the MA plan aka RomneyCare? This legislation was based on the individual mandate, and was also drafted  by the same think tank - the Heritage Foundation - that put together ObamaCare - and consequently has many similarities to ObamaCare.  I imagine there must have been a lot of debate about that plan, not just in MA, but all around neighboring states on the East Coast. What was the general reaction amongst conservatives - and liberals for that...
  50 years ago today, John Fitzgerald Kennedy the last genuine president of the United States was assassinated. Despite his flaws, he was doing the people's work, from the people's White House - and that  obviously didn't go down too well in élitist circles - it proved to be a terminal faux pas. There is no more proof that Lee Harvey Oswald murdered Kennedy than whether the tooth fairy, Big Foot or Elvis' alien brother in law from Arcturus did it. Oswald was never...
 There are liberals, and "liberals". It's the "liberals" who support ObamaCare - these are people who will vote democrat because family (etc) tradition dictates it, regardless of whether such a vote is in their interest. ObamaCare is no more liberal than a ménage a trois between Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter. Our allegedly "liberal" president could have promoted a healthcare program along the lines of other industrialized nations, and gotten the necessary...
