Uncomfortable with Reality

It is fascinating to watch Dylan Ratigan explain the simple truth about Muslims, terrorists, and the American “War on Islam”. But what makes this ironic is how absolutely uncomfortable this makes the rest of the people on the Morning Joe show. Especially when he calls it “an extraordinary failure of our politicians and our media.” […]

The Terrorists have Won

A fire at the construction site of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro (in a town near Nashville TN) has been ruled as arson. Gasoline was poured on several pieces of construction equipment and ignited. So let me get this straight. Someone who considers themselves to be a real American was upset about terrorism, so they […]

How far away from ground zero would you like?

Yes, I know I said I was going to try to ignore the whole “ground zero mosque” meme, but I can’t help myself. Especially when The Daily Show is this funny.

If we want to cut off funding to the terror mosque we Must Stop Watching Fox News

So, is this the most absolutely stunning lying hypocrisy ever perpetrated by Fox News, or the stupidest, worst, most mind-numbingly idiotic reporting ever done by Fox News? We report, you decide. When Fox News attacked Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal as the shady, terrorist-loving funder of the ground zero mosque, did they truly not realize […]

In fairness to Muslims

[from Jason Mustian] In fairness, we’ve been building ‘ground zeros’ near Iraqi mosques since March 2003. UPDATE: Really great rant on this issue over at The Daily Beast, titled “America has Disgraced Itself”. I would try to excerpt it, but you really need to read the whole thing. It is fairly short and to the […]

Why the prison at Guantanamo Bay must be closed

Two interesting pieces of news concerning the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay: The first is a report from the Pentagon that about one in five detainees who have been released from Gitmo have joined (or are suspected of joining) militant groups like al Qaeda. This includes two released prisoners who went on to help plan […]

Everything we know about terrorism is wrong

Andrew Sullivan reprints a great question from one of his readers that really makes you think about how stupidly the US is responding to terrorist acts. The (paraphrased) question is, if the Christmas day underwear terrorist really wanted to blow up the airplane, why did he go back to his seat where he had to […]
