21. That is how I see it.
I believe that there is a very concrete cognitive dissonance in the world that the Religious Wrong reside in and their choices in politics....and there is the same discrepancy in the world of the extremist Jihadists.

Pointing to it can only make one hide or see the truth, depending on one's sincerity.

It's like the message one might receive from his/her pastor at church on Sunday; God loves a cheerful giver. Well, those same folks who hear that message, are oftentimes the same folks that will gripe about taxes, and how they are paying for others in our society, yada yada yada....

I like the undertone of Wes' message because it is saying the truth to those who would prefer not to hear it, in a manner that doesn't make them feel like turning away. They first hear the message as being addressed to others....but I think, they also, in their hearts of hearts, have an inkling that extremists can be anywhere.
