Election 2016: Keith Ellison: ‘I would love to see Elizabeth Warren’ run
Given that they [Muslims] are such a small minority in this nation, it is odd that so many of our fellow citizens see them as such a threat. Yes, the 9/11 attacks were horrific, but they were more about optics than actual harm. The economy was already taking a hit before the Twin Towers fell. The reaction of the nation to seeing two major buildings in New York fall on T.V. has boosted the attack out of proportion. While the loss of even a single life is to be condemned and the devastation these deaths caused the families of those killed, more than this number of teens are killed every year in car crashes. These are also tragic losses but we do not make the kind of high profile issue of it that the 9/11 attacks are.
Er, sort of at a loss here. Can someone tell me why anyone would morally equate car death accidents with deliberate acts of terror designed to kill thousands? Also would someone explain to me how many car accident deaths in America are committed by radical Islamists against innocent citizens? Finally, in what way exactly was the outrage over the brutal, vicious murders of 3,000 innocents an “overreaction”?
You know, I try really hard to figure out the mindset that goes into writing bullsh** like that, but even though I was once a liberal and “get” them on numerous issues because I’ve “been there,” I do not get this at all. In fact, I find this to be one of the most (and there have been plenty) shameful instances of moral relativism I’ve ever seen since the 9/11 attacks.
What is wrong with people??
