Poetic justice for Terry Jones
Edited on Mon Apr-04-11 06:30 PM by JohnnyRingo
I don't really condone this, and no sane person resorts to violence because of a protest they don't like. Having prefaced that, this is my fantasy scenario for the attention seeking pastor.

I'd see official word in Afghanistan and elsewhere that this is not how America feels. Explain that this is the actions of one man out of 300mil, Terry Jones, then pass out the address of his church and home to anyone who wants to take up the issue with him personally and leave the rest of us out of it. I believe Jones would pop his head up with somewhat less frequency than Punxatawny Phil.

Conservatives like Jones always like to support the values of "personal responsibility", and this is a great chance for him to find out what that means.

Once again, those who kill for a bible or flag are at least as crazy as those who use it to provoke those emotions, but why should this one idiot help tarnish the global image of all the sane people who live here? As I see it, Jones has made his statement, but now he'll wish to hide behind the nanny state's apron.

On edit: I forgot to mention the best part would be to show him the video of troops handing out his address and photograph to the mobs of flag burning death to America fanatics.

2. If others think he's representative of all Americans, they are idiots.
And are undeserving of our time.

5. Just wait until a US troop member gets killed because of this lunatic
Then I think he will get to understand real quick all about personal responsibility.

I like your idea.

6. "A flag" represents actual geography, as well as a philosophy. A book does not.

Announce his arrival time and grab a bag of popcorn.

8. Delivered in person by Dog The Bounty Hunter. and Mark Levin
If ABC catches wind of that, it could end up a very short reality show. Kind of like Survivor eXtreme! ...no one comes out alive!. LOL

9. Prior to having Terry Jones to scapegoat, who got the blame for the
various atrocities performed by the islamic extremists - the honor killings, stoning of women, killing of gays, whipping (lashing) of children, beheadings, bombings, etc.?

Was all of this done because they could foresee Jones burning a book, which he probably bought at a local store?
