Pop quiz, hot shot - Which of these three men are not like the other ones?
Jack Ass # 1: Adam Yahiye Gadahn
Jack Ass #2: Fred Phelps
Jack Ass #3: Matt Hale
Of course, that was a trick question. They are all the same.
The first, Adam Yahiye Gadahn, is an American born convert to Islam who claims to be a member of Al Queda and wishes to kill Americans. Gadahn hates Americans. I mean really hates Americans. Gadahn feels that Allah wants all the infidels dead and is willing to do just that - kill you. He justifies the attacks of 9/11 as Gods will.
The second, Fred Phelps, is an American born (pretend) Christian minister who wishes to kill Americans. He hates fags. I mean really hates fags. He thinks they should all be killed, and even petitioned to erect a monument to the men who beat to death Matthew Shepard while tied to a fence post because Matthew was gay. He applauded Eric Rudolph for setting a bomb in a gay night club. Phelps justifies the death of homosexuals as Gods will.
The third, Matt Hale, is the American born leader of the Church of the Creator. Hale hates niggers & Jews. I mean really hates niggers & Jews. He thinks they all should be killed or shipped back to Africa. He is currently serving 40 years for ordering a hit on a judge, and several of his followers have gone on shooting sprees, killing innocent Americans. Hale justified the death of James Byrd, who was dragged behind a pickup truck by his neck, as Gods will.
All of these men are terrorists. All of these men whant to kill American citizens. All of these men want to impose their beliefs on you and if you don't agree with them, they would just as soon kill you.
So, what is the point of this post? Why does anyone defend these people?
Ok, to the leftists - That means the apologists of people like Adam Yahiye Gadahn. those of you who defend his hate speech merely because he is not Christian - The enemy of your enemy is not your friend. You may dislike Christians, and he may dislike Christians, but that does not mean he does not dislike you. He would kill you as quickly as he would kill anyone else in the country. He is no different than a Christian extremists. He just calls God by a different name. He is not your friend. He is not your buddy. Stop defending him and those like him.
Ok, to the wingnuts - that means the apologist of people like Fred Phelps, Matt Hale, Eric Rudolph, etc. Those of you who defend their hate speech merely because they call themselves Christian or because you are not terrible keen on the idea of gay marriage or your daughter marrying a minority - The enemy of your enemy is not your friend. They don't care if you are walking by a gay night club and are killed in the blast when they bomb it. They don't care if your children are caught in the cross fire of one of their members on a shooting spree. They are just as evil as Gadahn.
All of these men are a threat to our lives, a threat to democracy and a threat to America. Leftists, there is no defense to your defense. Wingnuts, there is no defense to your defense. We are all in this boat together, so we must view all of these terrorists the same because it does not matter if they are targeting Christians, homosexuals or minorities, they are all targeting Americans, and all Americans deserve to live without this fear regardless of if you agree with their lifestyle, religious beliefs or their skin color.
