Agreeing vigorously, and the reluctantly

Reader comment on item: Conservatives Rally on the Streets of Paris
in response to reader comment: Bigot...Really ?

I strongly agree that it is no bigotry to criticize the ideology of Islam from top to bottom. I also agree that the Muslim communities in Europe, Including France, represent every bit as much of an Existential threat as the middle eastern Muslims do to Israel. This threat cannot cease until Islam Itself remains the primary motive of their culture.The longer we refuse to face This fact, the greater the threat will become. Reluctantly, I also agree with your last sentence beginning with the word "reinforce ..." .

But the tragedy of this development is that most of those who support ever more Ominous Income and wealth inequality don't realize that is what they're doing. They Actually think they are supporting Freedom and Liberty, so successfully have they Been misled, propagandized, and indoctrinated by agents of the Rich over the last 20 years. It is their tragedy and the world's tragedy that this has happened. It is all the worse Because the rich are not particularly exercised about the threat from Islam, which Threat the Tea Party does recognize.
