To point to today, some, (not me) believe that our occupation of Muslim countries by our troops is a form of Christian terror. That the thousands of tons of bombs dropped in the Middle East that killed Taliban and civilians alike was a form of religious/ethnic attacks. Before you flame me, let me reiterate, I do not believe that, but many others in the world see it that way. When the lies of WMDs was revealed, that did not help our justification for invading a soverign nation. Just because we don't agree, doesn't make the problem go away. My whole point was that saying everything they do is because "they hate freedom" is ignoring the problem, and missing possible solutions. Go ahead and attack my Patriotism, even my service to country, but the simple observations stand true.

Not that you ever do.
So you think the war in Afganistan is a Christain war against Muslims? If so you are truely clueless. In case you have not noticed we were attacked on 9/11 but of course your liberal thinking is, we deserved it and caused it so we are the aggressors.
You call BS, site any source
Here is one
Experts estimate that only about 15% of Muslims are radical Islamists or Jihadists. It is not clear on what data this estimate might be based. In Egypt, the Muslim brotherhood enjoys the electoral support of about 20% of the population, though it is officially banned. In Lebanon, a very large minority or even a majority support the Shia Hezbollah. In other countries, support varies and is more difficult to determine. Non-Islamists may support an Islamist party because they agree with some of its goals, or because they do not see an alternative, or they may demonstrate for an anti-hero like Osama Bin Laden even if they do not really want to have a Sharia government in their own country. Opponents of Islamism are not always more "moderate."
There is a estimate of 1.3 billion muslims, do the math. Even if only 7% are radical that still leaves millions and lets say only 7% of those are radical enough to fight and kill your family that still leaves over 400,000
Clearly the numbers can not be confirmed but they are large.
Now go take your BS somewhere else but first open your sorry liberal eyes to the real world!
Ike was a go with the flow apple polisher who rose to the top (The Politician) - it should not come as a surprise that someone aggressively questioning an alleged Commie might bother him.scaring even Eisenhower who understood how fundamentally evil McCarthy was. But his spiritual heirs, who are now much more sophisticated in their manipulation of the media, are thriving and well with handsomely paid gigs in radio and TV.
I don't think Senator McCarthy's spiritual heirs bother you as much as the fact that they are reinforcing that you have the IQ of an "Elk Hunter" for supporting the Messiah.
Have a Happy New Year!!!!!

If we look back in the files on international Communist subversion, we will see the successes the KGB achieved. In Britain, the legendary Kim Philby was not only a senior member of MI6 and an advisor to the fledging CIA, but a KGB general as well; in France, Charles Pathe, another KGB spy, had his very own cabinet ministers; and in Italy, where the Communists nearly achieved political power through the Moscow-trained Palmiro Togiliatti, America spent millions to reverse early defeats of democracy.
In Germany, their second chancellor after World War II, Social Democrat Willie Brandt, had been recruited by Moscow while still in exile during the Nazi years and did his best for the East. Willie was cute -- he also sold himself to the CIA.
And yet, these same files show no hideous Russian success in the United States. This tells us the KGB was afraid of Joe McCarthy. Sure, there were spies, but Moscow realized that to use the Communist Party for espionage with McCarthy in the Senate would spell disaster. And that, in turn, tells us his objective to protect the United States Constitution - and the people it was written for -- was successful.

The best equivalent I can think of to McCarthyism would be if liberals, who (as we know) now control everything, began a campaign in which anyone who has ever expressed sympathy for secession, or discussed overthrowing the government, or attended "tea parties" at which speeches were given along those lines, was brought before Congress to prove their loyalty, and blackballed professionally if they were unsuccessful.
Just to show the inane but treacherous absurdity of McCarthy attacks... In the Army hearing, in the interchange with Welch to which I posted a link, McCarthy was attacking Welch for employing a person who once attended meetings of the National Lawyers Guild, which McCarthy describes as a Communist front. In fact, no one ever showed any reason whatsoever to believe that the NLG was linked to Communism or Socialism. The organization continues to exist today. It was formed as a progressive organization that was the first to include black attorneys in its membership. It focused on civil rights issues and supported Roosevelt's New Deal programs. It also supported the war effort and came out in favor of the internment of Japanese descendants during the war. The Federalist Society is at least as radical it its own way as the NLG ever was.
Wow, I'm so glad to know the Hussein administration's oh-so PC muzzie coddling is alive and well at RTF, too. Heaven forbid there might be evil Christians lurking here to aid in the cause of suicide bombing missions against mosques or Al Jazeera or ArabAir, or any other mayhem and mischief against the peaceful true believers of Islam.
Yardley: ... our own version of Christian "Jihadists", those who seek some form of holy war against Islam.
dnf777: Why not compare radical Islamists to radical Christians? There are a few of them out there, ya know. They make the news now and then, just like radical Islamists, except they tend to strike here at home. Olympic Park, Altlanta? OK Fed bldg?
JDogger in response to code3retrievers:
Your view on Christians. I would like you to name the Christian radicals?
You act as though there is a group of Christians out there hunting down and killing Muslims or others. JDog answered: It's called the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.If you have not noticed it is the other way around.
When I say group, don't give me a five member group. Give me a large organization that its goal is similar to the Radical Muslims. I know you will bring up some fringe group like the anti-abortionists but that is only a couple of idiots and not one major branch of Christianity sanctions these actions. The radical Muslims are well financed, well organized highly motivated and number in the hundreds of thousands. JDog answered: I'll call BS on this last statement
I don't know whether to bitch slap or pray for Hugh after he told code3 to look in the mirror to see a Christian terrorist.
Switched to the good Middle East stuff for your hookah JD?
But I do agree with him calling BS on one thing: the well financed, well organized and highly motivated radical Muslims don't number in the 100s of thousands unless you're only talking about the ones already on U.S. soil; they number in the MILLIONS. Hell we hire them as prison chaplains in the U.S., imagine how many true believers they recruit on a daily basis?
And Pete, you rock! Your post was the best thing about this whole thread. It might be a bit too extreme for some, but frankly I think the muzzie coddling has gone overboard. We can't call them terrorists, we ignore warning signs because we might be accused of racial profiling, we buy brand new prisons for them so they'll have every convenience and won't have to be stuck on some commie jungle island so far from Mecca, we try them in our civil courts, and we subject grandmothers and little boys to strip searches because they want to blow up more planes.
I say we start forming a militia right away to enact Pete's plan.
GUNS TO THE CHRISTIANS!!
