How's that?


Well, why don't you read some of them.

I have read some of them and I'm still curious as to what exactly you're referring?

Now substitute China, or Syria, for the US in the above statement. Would you come to our defense? Just curious...

Is there a reason as to why you'd have doubts that he would?

Well, that's the very reason that I asked the question. Isn't that the way we get to know each other, by asking for clarification?

It indeed is a very sad day, at least for me, to see the results of this survey no matter how skewed, flawed or even unscientific. No human has the right to limit the freedom of another human.

So now I wouldn't be surprised if some groups would suggest rounding up the muslims and bringing out the Zyklon-B.

Lord help us all, for we know not what we do.

If this isn't mass hysteria, than can someone learned tell me what is?

The survey conducted by Cornell University also found Republicans and people who described themselves as highly religious were more apt to support curtailing Muslims' civil liberties than Democrats or people who are less religious.


aSEeker ... okay, I'll tell you what it probably is ....

I don't believe this is an accurate 'poll'. Cornell University??
Excuse me while I
. Universities around the country are
left leaning in their philosophies and I'm willing to bet this
'poll', like most, are skewed to however the poll takers want it
to go. Betchya' if we were able to look into it (which we aren't),
the 'poll' takers just wanted to slam republicans and christians.

Show me 6 or 7 more 'polls' by other organizations that come out
the same, and then I'll consider this one accurate. Otherwise ...
YAWN!

I'm not arguing the validity of the poll, and not speaking specifically about FlyersFan, but I think it's funny when the far right gets angry when they are stereotyped as not too bright, then say the schools are too left.

Here's a simple solution, get a freakin' education!
Or is it when neo-cons go to college, they become smarter, then turn left? Hence, all of the colleges are left leaning?

Thats a great point Curme. If Colleges are so left, why arn't there any/many Republicans contributing to the education of America's young people?

Well for all those feeling the poll was incorrect, or otherwise. I have posted a story on ATSNN on it: 44% Say Limit Liberties of Muslim Americans

Or view the report yourself: Restrictions on Civil Liberties, Views of Islam, & Muslim Americans (PDF)

In the report, it tells you that people were asked their political affiliation (Republican, Democrat, or Independent), look at those result to see the bigger picture.


From ATSNN Story

Split into three groups, which the respondents identified themselves as; Republican, Democrat or Independent.

The government should have more power to monitor internet activities:
64% Republicans
34% Independents
40% Democrats

...

All Muslim Americans being required to register their whereabouts:
40% Republicans
17% Independents
24% Democrats

I don't think we're at a stage where restricting Muslim's rights is justified. The only event that I think would justify it is if a nuclear weapon were aquired and used on the US. In which case I think it'd be Muslim's own interests to leave or enter detention camps. (Similar to the ones used for Italians, Germans, and Japanese in WWII, which for the record were not concentration/death camps)

You are more interested in why I asked than his answer? Are you his mommy? Or his lawyer?

No wonder the Universe hates us.

Oh, there are conservative professors out there. But you don't hear from them much, because they are typically in disciplines where you have to be able to back up what you teach; fields like medicine, or engineering. Their successes are measured in lives saved, or projects designed and completed.

Libs, on the the other hand, gravitate toward tenure in positions where it is more important to feel than it is to know for sure; field like philosphy and the arts. They measure themselves by the amount of books they have written, or authors that they can quote.

Proof of the pudding is that there are not too many successful liberals in the business world.

If anyone remembers I have forecasted this already in many threads. The Muslims, South Asians and the dissidents are the scapgoats of Neo-Nazi America. As I've said before: Nazi America Has Risen. My views were censored and the topic removed; but the truth still remains the same and will continue to resurface.

I wonder if most of these 44% are Bush supporters? Right Jsobecky?

Is there a particular reason as to why you still haven't answered my previous inquiry?
Well here's another opportunity:

Do you feel I need to be either for asking my question? If so, by all means elaborate.

Funny I always thought poll taking was a branch of statistics which is a branch of mathematics and I've never really considered math a fuzzy touchy feeling "liberal" subject, but hey apparently you do. Is'nt stereotyping fun kids?

Typical diversion tactics, Durden. Very boring and childish, and not very original.

Buh-bye.
