Unidentified man burning pages of the Koran near ground zero.
I don't want to debate the validity of his remarks, (insert shameless promotion of blog here) that's for my post tomorrow.
It's actually the second sentence that I am posting this for. American's, meaning conservative American's, have gotten to a point in this country in which they are being cowed into silence by the PC police.
We have a news media in the US, and around the world, that has become nothing more than the PR arm for leftist groups such as the Democratic Party, ACORN, George Soros backed hate groups, the ACLU, La Raza, on and on.
While they are not specifically left wing, add Islam to the protected class.
Step out of line with a statement about any of the protected groups and the person uttering the offending remark is castigated in the news as a right-wing fanatic.
This man for instance, will be portrayed as committing a hate crime against Muslims.
My take on it is that while he likely targeted Islam specifically for his protest, it is almost more a push back at the PC laws that govern our daily lives in contemporary American society.
Bibles are burned by Muslims, the American flag is burned by leftists and Muslims, we put the crucifix in a beaker of urine. These are all celebrated by the fringe media as expressions of freedom of speech. Burn a few pages of the Koran and it's a hate crime.
In this circumstance, I support his actions and his statement. Political correctness is killing us, it's about time someone fought back a little.
