3. A Möbius strip of hate
Edited on Tue Aug-17-10 06:39 AM by Turborama
No, Democrats should NOT be split on this and it's a very sad day when they so blatantly chase the "fear & hate votes".

What I find really worrying is this "war on Islam", that the Reich-wing are proclaiming, is being broadcast all over the world!

And they are giving the impression that Al Qaeda are right when they use the propaganda that America is at war with Islam, as Joe Scab's guest said and as did Keith's guest the other night (I'm terrible with names and haven't got time to watch the videos in those links again).

CNN International are covering it: http://edition.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/08/16/obama.islami...

Al Jazeera English are covering it: http://english.aljazeera.net/news/americas/2010/08/2010...

And Faux news is 'covering' it, obviously.

What makes it worse is that Faux news is broadcast unfiltered all over the world.

For example, in Pakistan there are 84 different broadcasters pumping out Faux news' fearmongering extreme Islamophobia unfiltered 24/7. (Of course, that was until the horrific events that started 2 weeks ago, who knows how many people even have electricity at the moment). Apart from everything else, this is most likely a major reason for the anti-American sentiment there.

The point I'm making is, what must the Muslims across the world be making of all this American hatred towards their religion that's being spewed out of their TVs?

PS If you haven't seen it yet, I recommend watching this video by ObamaComma:

Terror Babies. No, it's not National Inquirer, it's National Republican

I posted it here with another one they made: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...
