The Ugly Truth of America - "Racism" against MuslimsSubmitted by BChase on Tue, 01/03/2012 - 18:10
I feel like I've hit the nail on the head with this one, and I'd like it if you agree with me to spread the word. What we're seeing here are a large majority of the population who disagree with the wars in Europe, yet they're scared of and want to attack Iran while unprovoked and without reason.
During the Bush administration, he pushed fear against Muslims into every America media outlet he could. All Muslims were terrorists, all Muslims were jihadists; they didn't fight for their freedom or their families, but because they thought by killing themselves they would gain endless virgins and glory simply for having killed us. This is a boatload of crap, but people still believe this today. Everyone except the soldiers in Iraq who have seen the people over there, and who don't view the other 99% of the civilian population as Americans do. How can we kill 500,000 Iraqi children and not think it matters to anyone? Truly the greatest argument for my case.
Ron Paul himself attempted to speak out in behalf of Muslims and from their perspective of things, and he was immediately booed, with Santorum (hates Muslims) leading the pack in disbelief. Imagine, us, the "Exceptional" United States considering the views of those lowly Muslims. Yes, this is the ugly truth everybody.
Dr Paul needs to put this whole situation into perspective and really get people to understand who is truly racist here. He already has unknowingly started to combat this, and upon reflection, I feel it will give his Foreign Policy and War on Drugs a firm foundation against racism.
Here's my blog with a video at the bottom showing the specific highlight I mentioned above:
