kow towing to a tyrant religion

Reader comment on item: Two Decades of the Rushdie Rules

Submitted by Jules Posten (United States), Sep 28, 2010 at 13:46

are all going to heck in a handbag. political correctness is now reaching into every aspect of American life and the bulk of our citizens are not even aware of what is happening to themselves and our freedoms. just look at this contrived ground zero mosque controversy, if you express an opinion that goes against the politically correct stance of many of "our elected" officials, such as Nancy Pelosi the "shining light" of congress or Mayor Bloomberg, who i thought was the mayor of NYC, or even our esteemed President BHO,. you find yourself called out as a bigot and racist. no matter that your opinion should have as much weight as any other citizen, you seem to have no business expressing it. the fact is the gtreat majority of US citizens have strongly negative feelings regarding a muslim place of worship so close to where a band of muslim murdering martyrs brought about the deaths of thousands of innocent people and left a scar on the city of New York, if you say so, you're a racist. perhaps the noted writer and commentator Michelle Malkin said it best when she named Islam and the "Religion of Perpetual Outrage"

Politcal correctness is moving the United States of America toward the brink of disaster. unless we very soon wake up to the danger, American as we've known and loved it will soon cease to exist. given my age, i doubt if i'll live to to see this tragedy, but i have adult children and a bunch of grandchildren, and i am very afraid for them and their futures.
