Anti-Muslim Backlash, My Foot
In the aftermath of the Fort Hood massacre, Americans apparently are now supposed to cower in their corners, lest they rise up and jump on their Muslim neighbors after yet another Islamic attack on our soil. Wouldn't want to "jump to conclusions," right?
What baloney. What utter nonsense. What Muslims in America need is a frontlash, backlash, and sideways lash.
Do I mean that literally? Of course not. Unless you're on a mission from Allah and shooting pregnant women on Army bases. You barbarian.
But this is to say to our Muslim friends: Get your house in order. Get your people in order. Stand up and speak out against terrorism originating out of your religion. A religion and worldview, by the way, which does not appear to have the intellectual and spiritual resources to give an adequate basis for liberty and freedom.
And a word to my fellow Americans: It's time we got in the faces of our mayors, governors, representatives, senators, and White House denizens to let them know that the age of supine "tolerance" before terror and dictatorship -- at home or abroad -- is coming to an end.
We could do with a healthy dose of defiance under God. Love defies tyranny.
