To be fair, support of Israel has not done much for the US in recent years, and it is arguably a justifiable political strategy to try something different. Problem is, the people we're dealing with will never be appeased -- they are not going to suddenly become tolerant of Western society and Western influence in their countries. They will never accept the Israeli presence. I firmly believe that even the most "moderate" Muslims secretly cheer at every perceived triumph of Islam over the West, even as they publicly condemn violence.

The left tends to view the right's attitude towards Muslims as bigotry and discrimination. The right views the left as hopelessly naïve sheep being led to the slaughter. Some of us in the middle -- good Americans all -- are aware that discrimination should not be tolerated under our Constitution, but also know that not everyone in the world shares our vision for human harmony and equality, and have no desire to sacrifice ourselves at the altar of PC.

Really? Do you lean liberal or conservative from your middle detent? If it is a justifiable strategy why are we at war with nations of Islam?

I would back away from that altar. You may not want to be sacrificed but lean against it as if it were a bar..

Wow, RACIST much?

Why don't you explain, in depth, what you really want to say?

Maybe you don't know how to dress for a rodeo.

You're right, blacks and hispanics didn't kill 3,000 people in the WTC buildings on 9/11. Those murders are on Mossad hands.

And forget about the USS Cole for a second, which no one doubts was an act of Yemeni terrorism, but what about the USS Liberty? When Israelis are machine-gunning our sailors in life-rafts I call that a war crime! Most Americans have no idea this happened. Most Americans have no idea they tried to drag us into a war with Egypt by deliberately bombing one of our naval vessels (and that's the official record/report!), just as was done with Iraq and is being attempted with Iran.

Yet tens of millions of Americans will support the Israeli apartheid regime to the bitter end, and the vast majority don't even know why other than because that's what they've been told to support tens of thousands of times through the media and other channels. Oh, and even a hint of criticizing their policies gets an accusation of, what's that....anti-semuhtizm hurp durp.

Oh, and Iraq war vet here, also against radical Islam (before anyone throws out the old: "well if you don't support Israel then you must be an Islamic tuurrurust hurp durp"). Yep, not everything is an all-or-nothing issue, black & white, red versus blue, up or down, etc. Sometimes it's ok to reject the actions and mentalities of both sides.

Are we going to repeat this lunacy again? Accidents in the fog of war are just that. No, Israel would not deliberately bite the hand that fed it.

As for war with Egypt in 1967, under the Nasser regime, they were anti-American as it was.

Between your grammar errors and failed attempts at explaining the irony with something that isn't ironic, it's hard to follow your post. Let me start off by quoting you directly.

No I can't! “Inner-city radical angry blacks” (your words not mine), are not necessarily all criminals. Your classification is more of a stereotype than a description. It’s easy to cast something you know very little about and fear in a negative light. I get it. But to believe “keeping white supremacy in check” by using anti-discrimination laws is the same thing as legislating to reduce crime by targeting “all inner-city blacks” regardless of their criminal activity, you’re just plain wrong…

Drum roll please……. And here comes an opinion out of the peanut gallery.

Dude, what are you talking about? Do you even understand the definition of “racist”?

You want me to, “explain, in depth, what I really want to say?” Well here you go! White supremacy has been kept in check by two major pieces of federal legislation. 1.) the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and 2.) The Voting Rights Act of 1965. Are you following me? If not I’ll make it a little more clear. This was my specific point! Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, sex, or ethnic origin. These were major tools (and sometimes still are) used by white supremacists to disenfranchise blacks. The party you love so much, you know the one influenced by the church of Rush Limbaugh, is trying their best to dismantle what the opponents of white supremacy built…

Was this explanation clear enough for you?

People make the mistake of thinking that, unless you are PC, no one will patronize your business. They discount the fact that public backlash at being forced to be "PC", will actually bring more business to your door.

Watch while it happens before your eyes. The market speaks!
Nope, Did not happen in Portland Oregon. A Gresham bakery called Sweet Cakes would not make a wedding cake for a same sex couple. They are out of business and owe the couple $132,000. All the conservative donors in the world could not save their little bakery from progressive liberals out for blood. The owners were threatened and stalked and harassed relentlessly. They now run the business out of their home.

It could happen anywhere to any business if you get enough bored people on social media to "scream" loud enough and bring it to the attention of the right people with the right amount of money. The Oregonian claims 70% of people harassing Sweet Cakes on social media, did not live in Oregon or Washington.
