Spinning Equality



Rep. Peter King started his radical Islamic hearings to discuss home grown Islamic terrorism. Opponents cry inequality, singling out one group, Muslim Americans, casting a pox on all for the actions of a few. Immediately, before the hearings started, opposing leftist arguments cite as many non-Muslim threats as possible drawing up reminders of the Oklahoma city bombing as if piling on more rhetoric is the answer to a balanced argument, equality or even structured arguing.

It's reminiscent of discussing the existence of God and being chided the statistics of pedophile priests. The goal of the discussion is to reach truth, which may insult your opponent if it clashes with his position, not to directly insult your opponent.

Bobby Kennedy held hearings on organized crime, not Italian Americans. As it turned out, most of the hearing detailed criminals who were Italian American. To keep consistent with his escaping a delicate issue unscathed remaining a liberal icon, King only needs to call his hearings an expose on home grown terrorism, not Muslim threats.

Morgan Freedman once said to Mike Wallace the way to get rid of racism and for this agreement, bigotry, is to simply stop talking about it. Leftists need only to ignore the issue of inequality and bigotry to make it go away.

The good news is that the US has terrorism on the run. They need to recruit local terrorists because they cannot outsource soldiers overseas. The US, in the middle of a great recession and with socialistic ideals gaining ground, still can provide a standard of living high enough to discourage the hopeless act of strapping on a bomb to kill infidels. But some, already disturbed and close to causing damage anyway, are manipulated into doing so in the name of Islam.

The numbers are low, but the threat is real is we continue the argument of inequality and bigotry. Ironically, leftists holds the key, but refuse to use it as doing so would weaken party platforms. It's not the problem that's the problem. Its the solution. Without inequality, what would we argue over?

  1. Why doesn’t this Peter T. King investigate the “Home Grown” radicalization of Irish Americans, who support the tradition wing of the IRA (Irish Republican Army), or Noraid (The Irish Northern Aid Committee), and being recruited by “Enemy Overseas” or worse “Enemy Overseas” the “Catholic Church ”, where they radicalize the priests into raping our young American boys, what about that you hypocrite scumbag.

    Peter King is a hypocrite, he supported the terrorist group IRA, who killed innocent British people, but hey I guess that was OK, right? Killing innocent people is OK, as long as they are not born is the United States, yup that sounds about right. I guess Jesus Christ would give all you extra points for that, NOT!

    No, there are no dancing in the street when Catholics hear about a pedophile priest, but there has been a concerted effort to Deny, Deflect, Defend this “Enemy Overseas” the “Catholic Church ”, I don’t even think you could deny that fact. What would Jesus Christ, say about this so called Church, I have a few thoughts myself.

  2. Montana,

    Your comment is a brilliant piece of comedy, doing precisely what Francis illogically does… doubling up the insults rather than discussing issues!

    First in being called a "hypocrite scumbag". Then in a conversation about whether there is or is not a domestic threat regarding the Muslim faith in America, the purpose of King's hearings, the logical answer to such a question is "…the Catholic Church radicalizes priests into raping our young American boys". Yes, that answers the question about Islamic terrorism nicely… (And Leftists cry foul for right wing rhetoric!)

    Staying on target, equality is not the equalization of wrong. If a car runs over the right foot, the solution is not to have the car run over the left foot. Or in the case with Angie, to spin the other way to "equalize" her dizziness. The solution is to stop the rogue car in the first place. Stop bigotry. And who could argue with Morgan Freeman's solution? (The man was on The Electric Company, played God and the US President… both convincingly!)

    Now some on the right AND LEFT think some good will come from King's hearings. But I wouldn't bet on government providing eye opening unavailing of great mysteries of Islamic terrorists domestic or abroad. Sadly, this circus may be what all politician causes are; the confirmation of their careers. (Oh… YOUR the guy who "investigated home grown terrorism?" Oh, YOUR the guy who "saved the internet?" etc.) How much action is motivated by the politician's true purpose; the preservation of freedom?

    I'm happy my strip made an impact. I wonder if the hearings will?
    (Nice link on Matt Stone and Trey Parker. I wondered if their play was great… although everything those guys do is great... crazy right leaning Libertarians they are.)

  3. Damn, I laughed so hard at Montana's letter that I spilled my drink.

    Dave, you handled this nimrod very well, and with admirable restraint. If I can give a bit of advice to "Montana" (you aren't a stripper are you? The name seems familiar...), if you want to impress people with your news sources, don't link to two comedy shows.

    The idea that we shouldn't look into Islamic suicide bombers because some Catholic priests like to bugger young boys doesn't quite make sense to me. Are you suggesting that if Catholic priests had been put into interment camps in 2000, the World Trade Center would still be standing? There's a "cause and effect" element that seems to be eluding me. Or, more likely, you.

    Personally, I'm against suicide bombers, IRA bombers, Bill Ayers bombers, pedophile priests, pedophile non-priests, and married men who screw confused teenaged girls (even if the offspring grows up to become president). And I've got the attention span to be against all of these groups (and more!) at the same time.

    So thumbs up on the cartoon AND commentary, Mr. Redl. You continue to provide a great service here!
