Those trollops US Troops had it coming

Over the last few days I’ve seen a lot of traf­fic over twit­ter attack­ing Rick San­to­rum as some kind of reli­gious extremest or bigot, we have Alan Simp­son call­ing him a homo­phobe and Mau­reen Dowd call­ing him a Mul­lah despite his beliefs being con­sis­tent with Catholic Teach­ing. Yes­ter­day morn­ing a clar­i­fy­ing event took place online in an exchange between myself and Doug Mat­a­co­nis (who I know and like) that I found most interesting.

The word had just gone out that 2 US troops had been shot if Afghanistan by a man wear­ing an Afghan uni­form over the burn­ing of Korans. Doug’s tweet about leav­ing Afghanistan was read on Morn­ing Joe (con­grats Doug!) but in all of the talk about the waste of the war and why we shouldn’t be there I noticed some­thing was missing.

Every­body seemed to accept the idea that it was nor­mal or in fact accept­able for an Afghan to kill over a burned book, nobody seemed to con­sider the actions and the vio­lence as bar­baric or over the line.

It sounded a whole lot like the old “she had it com­ing” line, so I made a statement

And then my tweets began I found it fas­ci­nat­ing that every­one was focus­ing on the Amer­i­can pres­ence in Afghanistan (which is a debat­able issue) but nobody seemed will­ing to con­demn the idea that some­body would kill over the burn­ing of a book, to wit:

and more

And I asked my ques­tion:

What really got me was this:

Think about it, say­ing that killing some­one over burn­ing a book is “hate­ful rhetoric”. And Pam Geller my friend is a spreader of “Hate­ful rhetoric” for being will­ing to con­demn such a thing. This is being said by a main­line pun­dit in Amer­ica in the 21st century.

and after I was done came the kicker:
And there was a point that some­one tried to make on Chris­tians, it didn’t work well:

even after I made it eas­ier:

Mean­while while our friends choose not to con­demn mur­der based on the destruc­tion of a book Rad­i­cal Islam con­tin­ues to act:

A judge con­demn­ing a defen­dant for insult­ing Islam…

Iran­ian counts con­demn­ing a Chris­t­ian pas­tor to death

Honor Killings con­tinue:

The goal remains anni­hi­la­tion of the Israel

and of course, you can’t talk rad­i­cal Islam with­out men­tion­ing yet another attack on a Dan­ish Car­toon­ist.

Yet the response of intel­li­gent peo­ple in a free plu­ral­is­tic soci­ety is an unwill­ing­ness to con­demn things like this because they so dis­like the peo­ple sound­ing the warn­ing that it pre­empts what would nor­mally be a nat­ural reaction.

That’s why you see peo­ple who make fun of dic­ta­tors banned from cul­tural events.

And why Molly Nor­ris is still in hid­ing.

Maybe it’s just me, but I’m out­raged by all these acts and most espe­cially the killing of these to US ser­vice­men because I don’t con­sider Afghans or Mus­lims infe­rior and because of this I expect and demand the same civ­i­lized behav­ior as I would expect of anyone.

Some like our pres­i­dent are apolo­getic but oth­ers like Sarah Palin get it:

Ah how DARE she demand civ­i­lized behav­ior from our allies, next thing you know you’re going to start cri­tiquing their treat­ment of women under Islam. After all honor killings, female cir­cum­ci­sion and treat­ing them like cat­tle are one thing, but not being will­ing to pay for con­tra­cep­tion cov­er­age, THAT’s barbarism.

Over the last few days I’ve seen a lot of traffic over twitter attacking Rick Santorum as some kind of religious extremest or bigot, we have Alan Simpson calling him a homophobe and Maureen Dowd calling him a Mullah despite his beliefs being consistent with Catholic Teaching. Yesterday morning a clarifying event took place online in an exchange between myself and Doug Mataconis (who I know and like) that I found most interesting.

The word had just gone out that 2 US troops had been shot if Afghanistan by a man wearing an Afghan uniform over the burning of Korans. Doug’s tweet about leaving Afghanistan was read on Morning Joe (congrats Doug!) but in all of the talk about the waste of the war and why we shouldn’t be there I noticed something was missing.

Everybody seemed to accept the idea that it was normal or in fact acceptable for an Afghan to kill over a burned book, nobody seemed to consider the actions and the violence as barbaric or over the line.

It sounded a whole lot like the old “she had it coming” line, so I made a statement

And then my tweets began I found it fascinating that everyone was focusing on the American presence in Afghanistan (which is a debatable issue) but nobody seemed willing to condemn the idea that somebody would kill over the burning of a book, to wit:

and more

And I asked my question:

What really got me was this:

Think about it, saying that killing someone over burning a book is “hateful rhetoric”. And Pam Geller my friend is a spreader of “Hateful rhetoric” for being willing to condemn such a thing. This is being said by a mainline pundit in America in the 21st century.

and after I was done came the kicker:
And there was a point that someone tried to make on Christians, it didn’t work well:

even after I made it easier:

Meanwhile while our friends choose not to condemn murder based on the destruction of a book Radical Islam continues to act:

A judge condemning a defendant for insulting Islam…

Iranian counts condemning a Christian pastor to death

Honor Killings continue:

The goal remains annihilation of the Israel

and of course, you can’t talk radical Islam without mentioning yet another attack on a Danish Cartoonist.

Yet the response of intelligent people in a free pluralistic society is an unwillingness to condemn things like this because they so dislike the people sounding the warning that it preempts what would normally be a natural reaction.

That’s why you see people who make fun of dictators banned from cultural events.

And why Molly Norris is still in hiding.

Maybe it’s just me, but I’m outraged by all these acts and most especially the killing of these to US servicemen because I don’t consider Afghans or Muslims inferior and because of this I expect and demand the same civilized behavior as I would expect of anyone.

Some like our president are apologetic but others like Sarah Palin get it:

Ah how DARE she demand civilized behavior from our allies, next thing you know you’re going to start critiquing their treatment of women under Islam. After all honor killings, female circumcision and treating them like cattle are one thing, but not being willing to pay for contraception coverage, THAT’s barbarism.
