limits on the use of race or ethnicity by law enforcement in their decision-making and enforcement activities.
Say, you mean like Eric Holder’s policy of not prosecuting crimes against whites, a la, Black Panther voter intimidation scandal?
bah, no, it’s you evil American citizens trying to protect your borders…
I never intended to read so much about islam, as I’m not a fan of religion, (especially a religion that seems in large part based in an excessively punitive code of human behaviour, to the point where it seems a cover organisation for massive human rights abuses worldwide).
But here I am. As I stated before, the ground zero mosque isn’t much of a concern to me. I do think that the discussion surrounding it is a ripe opportunity to explore the religion/law that is at the core of the 9/11 mass murder of thousands of Americans.
I remember years and years ago, being approached in an airport by some women who pleaded with me to look at some brochures, donate money, or whatever. I’m not the kind of person who gives much time to strangers approaching me and wanting something from me.
I think they either showed me a picture, or gave me a brochure, or something. What I remember was a picture of several people hanging, I think the women said it was in Iran. As I said, this was over a decade ago, Iran was a far away place with little to do with my life. Though I paused only for maybe a minute at most, the memory of that little interaction has always stuck with me.
Here it is later, and I’m thinking more and more back to that. That faraway place that didn’t matter much to me then, is mattering more and more to me now, as they attempt to spread their influence. The more I learn about the system that denies people basic human rights, that publicly executes its citizens for ridiculous ‘religious’ fanaticism, the more I think of those women’s urgency all those years ago.
I’m not nearly as concerned with the mosque at ground zero as many seem to be all up in arms over. But I think the publicity is a good thing. Why? Because it needs to be acknowledged, that Islam, as it is practiced in other places of the world is not 100% a harmless ideology. There are some horrific things going on in the name of sharia law, that quite frankly are a huge human rights concern.
The left and right seem divided over the mosque at ground zero, the left suddenly finding compassion for a religion that is far more dangerous to their ideals than any other religion the right might follow.
The mosque doesn’t really concern me. Americans who don’t acknowledge the roots of the 9/11 terrorist attacks are probably just as dangerous. Americans tolerate a lot of things we don’t condone, radical islam doesn’t.
‘cuz every now n then, I keep lookin’ for this:
I’ve felt that Obama was a racist from the first day I decided to learn something about him. He recently reinforced my view with a careless comment on a women’s daytime gab show. Paraphrasing, Obama says we are mongrels, then quickly adds, so are white people, but we know more about it.
It’s this whole, “we know more about it” part that I think shows the inherent racial lens Obama sees the world through. What I learned from the Shirley Sherrod incident, is that there’s probably more people than I thought that think that way, and it’s sad, to me.
I have a nephew who feels it’s okay to hit someone for calling him a nigger, but there’s plenty of black people who use the word, (which I used to find offensive), and yet they don’t get hit. Let me spell this out for you. If you believe someone should be treated differently because of the colour of thier skin, you are demonstrating a racist belief. Blacks or whites who want to be treated special because of their skin, want to perpetuate racism. If you have a problem with people of one skin colour using an offensive word, but not another, you’re being a racist.
Stop raising young folks who think being called a name justifies violence.
As for racism as a political tool, it has long been a standard staple of the democratic party. Don’t take the bait. A vote for democrats is a vote for racism. democrats are for faction against faction, division instead of unity. It’s been that way for a long time. Don’t vote for them, if you want to see a united United States.
