The idea that by and large American Muslims won’t do the right thing in the face of extremism or threats of violence is a RWNJ fantasy. Try to point that out and before your lips stop moving you get the screech “not all of ‘em!” or “They HATE US!!!” or they cite the wildly abused Pew poll.

Fact is white guys won’t pass that test. Mauritanian Americans, African Americans can’t pass that test. Why? It’s as false a premise as “have you stopped beating your wife yet?”

Forget persuading them. The best thing to do is send them packing back to the scary tiny little fringes of discourse where they belong.

I surf with javascript turned off for most news sites, so I only went back just now to see if that piece had comments. It does—over 3,600 so far. Nope, not gonna read ‘em.

Heh, it’s okay. I knew what you meant—iy was clear based on the context.

BTW CL, your Pages do pretty well in my FB network. Those friends don’t overlap with LGF folks like my Twitter does. A humble 250 followers.

Another great reason NOT to torture or have a reputation for torturing. How willing are people going to be to report their suspicions to authorities if they have to worry that the people they are reporting may get tortured? No one would want to report anyone unless they were 100% sure that a serious terrorist plot was afoot. And how often are people that certain about anything?
