    Aren’t they Quakers?

    What do you want to say? That liberals are silent because they are afraid of offending Muslims? Or, are you saying that conservatives are talking about it only because it is Muslims that are doing it? IOW, If it was them or the Russians doing it, they’d be happily silent–or maybe a little jealous?

    @sm, my actual point is simply that we all know who is far more often than not behind this stuff, but some people insist on pretending we don’t.

    What is it that makes the Muslim community so “untouchable” these days? It’s almost as if they can do no wrong. Of course, all are not extremists and that should be clearly noted. Yet, when the extremists act like terrorists, they SHOULD be called out. I wonder if it were Christians doing some of these things if they would get the same type of pass?

    I’m going to Kentucky in a couple of weeks. When I’m there I’m sure I’m gonna hear constant complaining about them damned Muslims and them dirty liberals.

    @William, my theory is that liberal values clash when it comes to Muslims.

    You would expect liberals to be against Muslims because of their treatment of women and gays. But liberals also believe themselves to be advocates for the oppressed minority, and in America, Islam is a minority.

    So what we see in the left’s treatment of Islam is which liberal values are more important to liberals. Specifically, “defending the oppressed minority” is more important than equal treatment for women or gays.

    (But even that is weird, since gays are an oppressed minority.)
