"Nothing to add"that's fer sure, pardner
Be strong?Interesting, Hitler was quoted as saying he admired Islam because it was a "stronger" religion than Christianity, which he felt was weakened by kindness and empathy and tolerance.Religions have beliefs, moral values, character. While we support everyone's RIGHT to practice their religion, it doesn't follow that all religions are to be endorsed. Discussion is appropriate. Also appropriate is the desire to rescue people who are in bondage to harmful ideologies. Not by governmental coercion, obviously, but by moral suasion.This pictured redneck is misguided as best, trying to get attention possibly.
The government does not endorse religions, but allows them. Muslims are just people like you and me, taking care of their families, working for a buck.
Mosques get threatening letters: Trump will ‘do to you Muslims what Hitler did to the Jews’"Letters threatening that President-elect Donald Trump will do to Muslims what Adolf Hitler “did to the Jews” were sent to three California mosques last week, according to the Council on Islamic-American Relations, or CAIR.The handwritten letter, which referred to Muslims as “children of Satan,” were mailed to Islamic centers in San Jose in Northern California and Long Beach and Pomona in Southern California. It called Trump the “new sherriff [sic] in town” who will “cleanse America and make it shine again” by eradicating the country’s Muslim population.“You Muslims are a vile and filthy people. Your mothers are whores and your fathers are dogs,” the letter states. “You are evil. You worship the devil. But, your day of reckoning has arrived.”The letter went on to say that Muslims “would be wise to pack your bags and get out of Dodge.”The Evergreen Islamic Center in San Jose was the first to receive the letter, according to CAIR, a civil liberties and advocacy organization for Muslims in the United States. Authorities were alerted Thursday night after the center’s imam found it in the mail, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.On Saturday, CAIR said the Islamic centers in Long Beach and Pomona also received a similar letter.“The hate campaign targeting California houses of worship must be investigated as an act of religious intimidation, and our state’s leaders should speak out against the growing anti-Muslim bigotry that leads to such incidents,” Hussam Ayloush, executive director for CAIR’s office in Los Angeles, said in a statement.The letter, which was signed “Americans for a Better Way,” ended with “long live President Trump and God bless the USA.”..."Not for that He won't.
"The government does not endorse religions, but allows them."yes, that's why I said: "we support everyone's RIGHT to practice their religion"so, why did you make that comment?"Muslims are just people like you and me,"I don't think I've heard anyone say Muslims aren't peopleso, why did you make that comment?"taking care of their families, working for a buck."uh, you could make the same meaningless comment about members of the KKKso, why did you make that comment?you really don't have much to say, do you? no matter what else say, do and belief, we're all working for a buck so let's not discuss any ideaswhat a freakin' moron!
Americans keep looking away from the election’s most alarming story"In assessing Donald Trump’s presidential victory, Americans continue to look away from this election’s most alarming story: the successful effort by a hostile foreign power to manipulate public opinion before the vote.U.S. intelligence agencies determined that the Russian government actively interfered in our elections. Russian state propaganda gave little doubt that this was done to support Republican nominee Trump, who repeatedly praised Vladimir Putin and excused the Russian president’s foreign aggression and domestic repression. Most significantly, U.S. intelligence agencies have affirmed that the Russian government directed the illegal hacking of private email accounts of the Democratic National Committee and prominent individuals. The emails were then released by WikiLeaks, which has benefited financially from a Russian state propaganda arm, used Russian operatives for security and made clear an intent to harm the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.From the Russian perspective, the success of this operation can hardly be overstated. News stories on the DNC emails released in July served to disrupt the Democratic National Convention, instigate political infighting and suggest for some supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) — without any real proof — that the Democratic primary had been “rigged” against their candidate. On Oct. 7, WikiLeaks began near daily dumps from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s email account, generating a month of largely negative reporting on Clinton, her campaign staff, her husband and their foundation. With some exceptions, there was little news in the email beyond political gossip and things the media had covered before, now revisited from a seemingly “hidden” viewpoint...."
