American religious wars

This is from Red Neck Liberal. He says it better than I could. . .

The ongoing anti-Muslim hate campaign makes me wonder how blissfully unaware of history wingnuts must be. How else could they co-opt Nazi-style racial scapegoating so blatantly and with so little shame? Hasn't anyone amongst them even skimmed a history book and noticed how Hitler's prewar treatment of German Jews parallels the way they're treating American Muslims?

It also makes me wonder how 'Baggers disprove their own case every time they open their fat, stupid traps. The fact that they're free to push their hate unmolested and largely unchallenged by the people they're attacking only goes to show how stoic and peaceable regular Muslims really are. And how far away they are from the terrorist/fanatic stereotype pushed by fringe hate groups like the... err... GOP.

One side in the "debate" do show themselves up as terrorists, fanatics and all-round enemies of civilization. But they don't read the Koran - aside from maybe the Glenn Beck crib notes.

The central irony: People who claim to be all about "bedrock" American values don't seem to uphold the bedrock American value of freedom of religion. No one who values freedom of religion should oppose a mosque near "Ground Zero."

American values don't mean anything to them, unless it fits their agenda, which is limited to big corporations, rich folks, and more greed. The only thing they value is money and profits, and "we the people" don't count.

Those folks on the right believe in demolishing the constitution when it fits their hate agenda. Don't forget that Bush said, "It's only a piece of paper" and that right there should be a tattle-tale sign of what they have in store for America if they get back in power.

People better wake up, stand up, and fight back!
