55. "there hearts" - Should be "their hearts". If you are going to disseminate hate, you should

 

at least show minimal scholarship so people who are not supporters of the real estate swindler from New York, say, or fans of Dick Cheney, can take you seriously. That's not a hard and fast rule, as people who cannot spell frequently outclass themselves with their writing.

I don't think that is a concern here.

The content of the post seems to ignore hundreds of millions of peaceful Muslims. It also ignores the fact that, writing that in the U.S. one is writing it atop the bones of tens of millions of indigenous people, killed to make way for us. And you are also writing it because of the free labor of black folk for hundreds of years, their labor and that of women at a discount now. And all that followed hundreds of years of Christians burning, hacking, torturing and killing their way across the old Europe and Eastern lands on their way to salvation.

I'm not honestly sure that white Europeans have that much they can hold up as a better moral compass, as you seem to suggest. If your scenario of conflict comes about it may simply be the harvest of what we sowed in the first place, not something that arose independently.

There are also events such as climate change and the fraud of an economy we have built to pretend we are still solvent, the outcome of which might yet be far worse than any of the little wars we have seen fit to delight ourselves with so far.

Here's a hint. Don't place too much emphasis on things which Fox News deems as scary or important.

You suggest in the beginning of your post that anyone who disagrees is defending Islam, but I 'm not, They don't need me. I am suggesting the criticism is weak, and while maybe partially correct, hardly the most important thing for us to deal with.

Clean the crystal ball. It appears to have been so smudged important things were missed.
