Irony, thy name is this thread.
1) Belief that the people running the government do not answer to the proper moral authority.
2) Belief that the moral obligation of mankind is to attempt to replace them with people who do.
3) Thinly veiled threats of force in the event number 2 does not work.
Sometimes, I question the fundamental philosophical difference between the revolution jerkoffs here and people like Nidal Hassan, other than a mere accident of birth which led them to frame their rhetoric using different words. Of course, Hassan actually put his money where his mouth was. Then again, so did people using the same rhetoric which is popular here, like McVeigh.
For all the questioning of why moderate Muslims don't try harder to separate their beliefs from those of Hasan, I sure don't see many of you trying very hard to separate your beliefs from those of Tim McVeigh.
I guess saying this makes me a liberal, though. I should just be happy watching the principled, idealistic, and coalition building American conservatism of folks like Ronald Reagan be turned into reactionary, increasingly divisive, nonsense.
I will just have to live with not being invited to your parties.
In before the endless parade of comments about how I just don't understand the nuance, comments that people routinely dismiss when they come from Islamic leaders, but that are suddenly embraced if they come from "us."
