Christian Terrorism (in Hollywood)
Last night I watched an episode titled "Delta Does Detroit" of a TV series called E-Ring. I was astonished to learn of a new danger to the Muslim world: Christian Terrorism! A group of terrorists took over a mosque in Detroit to demand that the U.S. government release the brother of the leader of the group. Apparently his brother got a job as a contractor in Iraq and managed within a day of his arrival to murder two innocent civilians. Eventually the worshipers in the mosque were saved from these terrorists by some military personnel working with the FBI. (Yes, the show brought up the Posse Comitatus Act, but that is not important here)
What is important is that the "Christian terrorists" never said a thing about Christianity or used it as a justification for their actions. The reason, of course, is that Christian terrorism is a figment of the imagination of Hollywood writers (nutjobs like Eric Rudolph are not Christian). Now I realize that a show like this is fiction (if not fantasy), but if the entertainment industry is going to give us Christian terrorists, shouldn't it give us a plethora of Muslim terrorists? At least that would be more realistic. Unfortunately if would be politically incorrect and not fit in with the upside-down Hollywood world view where Christians are all right-wing zealots and Muslims are all misunderstood victims of persecution.
But really, what can you expect from an industry that glorifies suicide bombers?
Happy Veterans Day to all American veterans who have fought against the hideous ideologies of despotism, totalitarianism, fascism, communism and last, but not least, the current evil of Islamic fascism. To all of those heroes, living, passed on or having made the ultimate sacrifice, I give you my heartfelt thanks for my freedom and the freedom of the peoples all over the world who now are not the subjects of the failed ideologies which led to the enslavement and deaths of untold millions of human beings.
Diego Maradona was one of the greatest soccer players of all time. Very few in the sport could match him in ability and vision. Twenty-five years ago he was at the top of the soccer world. Now he is a drug-addled, out of shape and ill-bred ignoramus who is taking full advantage of his legend. Demonstrating his limited education and minimal knowledge of geopolitics, he can be seen these days kissing Fidel Castro's ass or wearing a shirt that contains a good portion of his entire vocabulary.
