*Mods, if you feel this belongs in a rant/trash/Pulitzer Prize section, then by all means. . . .
Recent events have brought to mind a disturbing ideation.
Someone burns a Koran and people riot, America apologises, things calm down.
Someone draws Mohammed, people riot, America apologises, things calm down.
Someone makes a video, people riot, America apologises, . . . . . . . .
It brings to mind a Pavlovian Response. People, free people, express themselves (by burning, drawing, filming) and islamic extremists riot and burn
and kill, and America apologises.
When is the line going to be crossed? When is America going to be to afraid to express themselves for fear of retaliation?
When are the cowards in DC going to create laws to inhibit OUR freedoms for fear of others in another country?
It appears, at least to me, that islamic extremists are creating an environment where we are afraid to express ourselves.
We are, in a sense, following Sharia Law out of fear of riots and anger.
When are we going to stand up to this?
When are we going to say, "I won't be dictated to, like this!"?
When are we, as a nation, going to say, "Go to hell!" (C. Krauthammer)
I really fear for our nation when we spend more time formulating apologies than finding out who killed Americans.
Thank you for providing me the freedom and forum to express my opinion.
