Quote of The Day - What She Said!

"I don't give a flying fuck what you think of me or my ideas and I most certainly won't accept addled "correction" from amateur fascists or hobby socialists. I'm not going to provide a forum for junior Mussolinis or junior Stalins. Either you support the Bill of Rights or you are opposed to the fundamental ideas of this country; there is no kinda-sorta to it, no footnotes or wink-wink secret codicils.

If you're not okay with the Bill of Rights, I am not your friend. I'm not your enemy, I'll save my enmity for murderous scum, but if you're not good with every word of all ten amendments, we're not on the same team, no matter how much you wish we were."


-Roberta X

Damn straight!

Update

Roberta asks a great question of the "Muslims have terrorist cooties" crowd.

Are you any deader if the guy shouts "Allahu Akbar" before he shoots you instead of "I Hate Mondays?" Are you any more terrorized?

Look, there are plenty of people who are willing to kill others for a whole host of different reasons. Some are psychopaths, some are criminals for whom the juice is worth the squeeze, some are pissed at the world, and some are doing it in the name of religion. In the end does it really matter why? People have been killing in the name of religion since the dawn of civilization, but that doesn't justify us blaming one religion for the actions and beliefs of extremist outliers.

the time for bleeding has come

I disagree - This is an ideological war and as such, we need to fight it that way. We need to fight it with knowledge.

It's much like fighting terrorists. You have to kill the ideology. Obviously a dead terrorist is a good terrorist, but you win the war by killing that which makes terrorism an attractive option for him.

It is the same here. If the majority of our countrymen don't believe in the tenets espoused by our BOR those who bleed will bleed in vain and we will have accomplished nothing.
