What Terry Jones has done is force our 'betters' to address something they really would rather avoid. Which is a happily successful result for so blunt a tactic. All of the hue and cry about the sacredness of the printed word-- by both Left and Right-- as a symbolic demarcation of civilization just comes across as woefully anachronistic, almost akin to the Islamists' objection. Subtlety is lost on the Muslims and the Media alike. In fact, it's getting harder and harder to tell them apart.
Are they like sex? Possibly. One thing is for sure, no one in a Tea Party is going to keep you from lighting a cigarette afterward. But here's a real problem: The GOP gets all particular and fussy about a shining light like Sarah Palin, but the Socialist Party has absolutely no problem aligning themselves with a creature like Nancy Pelosi (or a complete idiot like Barbara Boxer.) They recognize leadership and power wherever it manifests. And loud denunciations from their pulpits, sprinkled with words like "racist!" never hurt their cause, either. The GOP has always thought itself above populism, and at times that can be a good point of leadership in a crisis if your leaders are decent and principled. An obverse case in point: our current president cares not a whit for his former populism--its usefulness now expended-- and is leading his Media Corpse with great skill. The way I see it, the GOP is too perfect by half. There's a LOT of dirt to be handled by those unaccustomed to fighting for Freedom, but if you're unwilling to dig a foxhole first, be prepared for whatever your enemy fires off at you. The High Ground is admirable. . . as a target.

Google up "hidden racism." The goal posts are so far apart now that just waking up in the morning is a hate crime. People will ever see what they are looking for.

Donna B., I would suggest that if I were an Irish mother of that day, Swift's proposal would be blunt enough for my shock.

Dear Gregory, I read the news today, oh boy!: Four more Dems say no to Obamacare. Just sayin'.

Reading the comments at Media Matters has proven to me that vampires really are unable to see themselves in the mirror.

You realize, of course, that we are dealing with a generation that believes along with Alanis Moronisette that the definition of irony is "like rain on your wedding day." Irony is no fun if you have to explain it!

I've always maintained that irony is the final proof of our transcendence beyond mere evolution. Judging by the misguided outrage at Dan's splendid debating style, I'd say my observation stands up to the proofs.

Oh, we're all channeling the same vibe so I'll just c/p my blog rant: Where are the leaders of the Muslim world standing up for innocents? Are they prejudiced against folks who are not Muslim? I'm not saying they are, but there's no corresponding Collective Muslim Guilt to go with the oppressive terrorism of Islamic radicals. And if we've been taught nothing else by the race-mongers, we certainly do know that even one oppressive person is representative of all. We're still waiting. . .

Unless and until the abusive race-mongers are willing to give up the power they derive from its use, I think we are reduced to quietly complaining amongst ourselves. The horrible injustices of slavery were challenged and removed by the racial/intellectual peers of the oppressors. Indeed, those in control are by definition the ones most able to set things right. It took a lot of good men with the power to do right and the willingness to act. Slavery didn't just die out from disinterest. It was pried out forcibly and at great cost. (Another reason to celebrate America's inherent inner compass. It leads us back to Truth.) For the same righteous reasons, but in nowise the same scale, abusive race-mongers and their disingenuous ideals must be challenged by and removed by their racial/intellectual peers. Why? Because they are in control of the conversation. As long as their peers allow them to remain unchallenged in their control and limning of the innocent, I don't think it will go away. Just as fear breeds resentment, unchallenged abuses breed ever-bolder tyranny.
Well, we keep our mouths shut and play the game, cede the low ground to the shallow race mongers and pretty much keep on making plans to work, eat, live and grow without giving a second thought to someone's skin color being something that should drive our emotional bus. It may work.
Righteous indignation, with the full weight of the word,righteous in its sacred, moral sense. Because this is unrighteousness. It's abhorrent in the most visceral recesses of the psyche, it's vile and villainous and I haven't even cracked open the thesaurus.
