Peretz: Muslims Are Indifferent to Human Life and Therefore Unworthy of First Amendment Protection
Killgore Trout posted this in the overnight thread earlier this morning, and since he hasn’t posted it as a page, I thought I would. (Hope you don’t mind KT!)
New Republic Editor in Chief Martin Peretz:
But, frankly, Muslim life is cheap, most notably to Muslims. And among those Muslims led by the Imam Rauf there is hardly one who has raised a fuss about the routine and random bloodshed that defines their brotherhood. So, yes, I wonder whether I need honor these people and pretend that they are worthy of the privileges of the First Amendment which I have in my gut the sense that they will abuse.
