A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

I’m really not sure what to say about this.  So why post it, right?  Good question.

I’m appalled, flabbergasted, at the moronic, yawning reception of the Obsession DVD.  Are we Americans really so blind as to be unable to register an existential threat?

Two posts at JW got my attention.  The first is taken from Pennsylvania’s The Patriot-News.

Pennsylvania woman deeply offended to learn that there’s a jihad against the U.S.A.

Lopez said she was offended by the DVD. And after learning her daughter, who lives in York, also received a copy, Lopez said she wondered whether there was political motivation behind the mailing.

“My thing is, I’m not stupid. There are definitely radical Islamic cells all over the world, but we also have the Aryan Nation, the [Ku Klux Klan], all kinds of hate groups out there,” Lopez said. “They’re just instilling fear in us. I’m tired of living in fear.”

Unfortunately, Ma’am, you ARE stupid.  On one hand, obviously ignorant.  On the other, willfully ignoring the truth presented before you.  Do you know what fear is?  It’s a survival reaction…it’s self-preservation instinct.  It’s useful, for heaven’s sake.  Sometimes there are very good reasons to have some healthy fear.  I guess 9/11 isn’t reason enough for you.  Lady, when’t the last time the KKK killed anyone?  The Aryan Nation?  (Oh, by the way, do they have “cells ALL OVER THE WORLD”?)  Can’t remember, because it’s been so long, right?  What about Islamic “radicals”?  EVERY…SINGLE…DAY

Nobody is trying to make you “live in fear”.  They’re asking you to live in awareness

Know what I fear?  I fear that morons like you are going to let them win.

Note that Ms. Lopez includes jihadis in the “hate group” category (“all kinds of hate groups out there”).  Not that she’s incorrect.  They do hate us.  But we’ve become so cavalier about labeling behaviors and speech as “Hate” that the word has lost meaning.  In this instance, where its use is actually warranted, it’s being used to minimize the threat!  Isn’t that alarming to anyone but me?

The second highlights reactions in another newspaper, from a staffer of the MAS of all people.
