Glenn Beck explains why "they" hate us and want to scare us.....
"More and more Muslims now hate us all across the world, and it really has not a lot to do with anything other than our morals.
The things that they were saying about us were true. Our morals are just out the window. We're a society on the verge of moral collapse. And our promiscuity is off the charts.
"Now I don't think that we should fly airplanes into buildings or behead people because of it, but that's the prevailing feeling of Muslims in the Middle East. And you know what? They're right."
With wild-eyed wingers like Beck, the reason we're hated by Islamic extremists is because all we want to do is copulate.
So according to Beck, it's not that our military has so many installations in and around Muslim lands that gives them cause for jihad, it's our "promiscuity".
See why Glenn Beck has his own teevee show? Me, either.
Next up Peggy Noonan...
The other is the broader culture in which we all live, and which includes everything from schools to the neighborhood to the media. It's not a new thing to say but it's still true that the latter, which is more powerful than ever, is wholly devoted to the material. People are money winners or luxury item enjoyers. They just want stuff. It is soulless.
The view we show of life to ourselves, and to whatever lost young men are watching, is not broad and inspiriting. It is limited and dispiriting. It is every man for himself.
We make it too easy for those who want to hate us to hate us. We make ourselves look bad in our media, which helps future jihadists think that they must, by hating us, be good. Link
I mean, honest to God, what lengths will wingers not go to avoid the very clear reason why Islamic radicals conduct terrorism acts? According to Noonan, contrary to Beck, it's not the promiscuity and copulation...it's the freakin I-Phones and the SUV's or the teevee commercials...or something that's "soulless".
What it's not....is our federal government's foreign policy that basically assumes everything in the world belongs to the U.S.....and we have to protect our stuff even if it means violating Muslim countries sovereignty and desire to control their own destiny. See...it can't be that. Screwing and making soulless I-Phone commercials, yes, but definitely not, like, military occupations of Iraq which come with tens of thousands of Muslim deaths. Couldn't be that.
Beck and Noonan, wingnuts extraordinaire, seem to be rushing in to fill the void left by Jerry Falwell.
