Call it what it is

It's not Radical Islamic Terrorism"

It's not Radical Christian Terrorism"

It's Radical CONSERVATIVE Terrorism"!!

The hate spewed by the Taliban or ISIS is the same hate that is spewed by CONservatives. They simply replace the word God, Jesus or Lord with Allah.

11 of the 17 Republican Presidential candidates appeared at an event where the host called for the murder of LGBT people.

Trump just spoke at the Faith and Freedom group that praises attacks on Planned Parenthood and the murder of abortion providers.

Listen to just a few minutes of AM Hate Radio, and you'll soon learn who it is, or which group you should hate.

Try to wish the 16 year old daughter of the President a "Happy Birthday", and you'll see people wishing that she get raped!???

Watch a fucking serving Senator pray a Psalm for the President that prays for his death and the desolation/destruction of his family.

I normally don't agree with Republicans, but in this case I do.

It's time we call these acts EXACTLY what they are...

Radical Conservative and Radical Republican Terrorism!

25. It doesn't matter how he registered.

He followed ISIS ideology. I think in his case, he was a distrubed and very angry man, and the anger consumed him. ISIS was an outlet for that anger, as his parents and ex wife said he was not religious.

Many conservatives are filled with fear and hate, because they need an enemy and conservative media and radio gives it to them.

Fear and anger and hatred are what is behind ISIS and much of what happens here at home. Hatred against gays, women, undocumented workers, anyone will serve as an enemy when you are looking for a place to hang your hatred.

Conservatives tend to be more fearful so fall for this more often than liberals.

"OMAR MIR SEDDIQUE MATEEN was born 16 November 1986 and he lives (or lived) at 2513 S 17TH ST APT 107 in FORT PIERCE, St. Lucie County, Florida, U.S.A. His voter ID number is 114484524. He registered to vote 19 July 2006 and he is registered in the Florida Democratic Party.


The Florida Democratic Party is a little different from the rest of the Democratic Party.
They gave us Debbie Wasserman Schultz who refused to endorse Democrats for vulnerable Republican seats in 2008 because that might upset her Republican friends while she was the Chairwoman of the DCCCs Red to Blue Program.

20. What is it about the TRUTH that so disturbs you?

Some documented background on Debbie Wasserman Schultz:


In 2008 Debbie Wasserman Schultz refused to endorse these 3 Democrats
who had won their Primaries and had a chance to win Republican seats:

Miami-Dade Democratic Party Chair Joe Garcia

Former Hialeah Democratic Mayor Raul Martinez

Democratic businesswoman Annette Taddeo

All three had won their local Democratic Primaries, and were challenging Hard Core Republican incumbents with whom Wasserman-Schultz had become cozy.
Not only did the head of the DCCC Red to Blue Program REFUSE to endorse these Democratic challengers,
but she appeared in person at at least one (possibly more) Campaign/Fundraiser for their Republican opponents.




FL-18, FL-21, FL-25: Wasserman Schultz Wants Dem Challengers to Lose
by: James L.
Sun Mar 09, 2008 at 7:15 PM EDT
<snip>

Sensing a shift in the political climate of the traditionally solid-GOP turf of the Miami area, Democrats have lined up three strong challengers -- Miami-Dade Democratic Party chair Joe Garcia, former Hialeah Mayor Raul Martinez, and businesswoman Annette Taddeo to take on Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart, Lincoln Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, respectively.

While there is an enormous sense of excitement and optimism surrounding these candidacies, some Democratic lawmakers, including Florida Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Kendrick Meek, are all too eager to kneecap these Democratic challengers right out of the starting gate in the spirit of "comity" and "bipartisan cooperation" with their Republican colleagues:

But as three Miami Democrats look to unseat three of her South Florida Republican colleagues, Wasserman Schultz is staying on the sidelines. So is Rep. Kendrick Meek, a Miami Democrat and loyal ally to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

This time around, Wasserman Schultz and Meek say their relationships with the Republican incumbents, Reps. Lincoln Diaz-Balart and his brother Mario, and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, leave them little choice but to sit out the three races.

"At the end of the day, we need a member who isn't going to pull any punches, who isn't going to be hesitant," Wasserman Schultz said.

Now, you'd expect this kind of bullshit from a backbencher like Alcee Hastings, but you wouldn't expect this kind of behavior from the co-chair of the DCCC's Red to Blue program, which is the position that Wasserman Schultz currently holds. Apparently, Debbie did not get Rahm's memo about doing whatever it takes to win:

The national party, enthusiastic about the three Democratic challengers, has not yet selected Red to Blue participants. But Wasserman Schultz has already told the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee that if any of the three make the cut, another Democrat should be assigned to the race.

http://www.swingstateproject.com/showDiary.do?diaryId=1537










The bloggers also are furious with Rep. Kendrick B. Meek (D-Fla.), who similarly refuses to endorse the Democratic challengers to the three Cuban American Republicans.

They are calling for Wasserman Schultz to step down from her leadership role at the DCCC. And they're not letting up, even after one Florida liberal blogger reported that the congresswoman seemed "frustrated" by the blogs and had asked to "please help get them off my back."

This prompted even harsher reaction from perhaps the most influential of the progressive political bloggers, Markos Moulitsas, a.k.a. Kos, founder of Daily Kos, who wrote on his blog Wednesday: "On so many fronts, the Republicans are standing in the way of progress, on Iraq, SCHIP, health care, fiscal responsibility, corruption, civil liberties, and so on. Those three south Florida Republicans are part of that problem. And she's (Wasserman-Schultz) going to be 'frustrated' that people demand she do her job?"

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/03/19/AR2008031903410_3.html


Here are Kos comments on the Wasserman-Schultz betrayal of the Democratic Party:
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/03/20/480511/-DCCC-Says-Uproar-Over-DWS-Recusal-Much-Ado-About-Nothing




A lot of time has passed since 2008, but I don't take these kinds of betrayals lightly. Now I find that DWS has been PROMOTED from Chair of the Red to Blue Program
to Chair of the DNC. She must be making the "Centrist" Democratic Leadership VERY HAPPY if they are rewarding THIS kind of Party Treason.

I think she has subsequently changed it, but when she was blocking gay marriage applications she was a Democrat. Just having a "D" after your name doesn't necessarily make you a saint.

It is conservatism that is the problem. There are liberal Baptists, Liberal Methodists, Liberal Islamists, there are Liberal Republicans (although not many any more) and there are liberal Democrats.

It is the conservatives that are the problems.

People register to vote in closed primaries, or don't really care which party matches their ideology when they register they just check a box.

I registered as a Republican many years ago. Do you think I'm conservative?

22. Religious terrorism

Religions teach to hate in this way. Whether or not he is religious now, someone taught him to hate.

Any are welcome to provide me with links to current non-religious organizations that regularly teach children this sort of hatred.

At the very least, any organization that teaches this sort of hate does not deserve public funding.

Even political labels are temporary and will not mean the same thing 50 years later.

The religions still keep teaching from the same books. Support the organization that teaches and you are supporting the resulting actions.

Trying to call it something else is only a form of manipulation that allows people to do the mental gymnastics that lead to this sort of thinking.

29. "Religions teach to hate in this way.

Conservative religions may teach people to hate (although they claim not to), but there are many religions that are not conservative and that teach love instead of hatred.

Don't broad brush it.

I'm an atheist and am not here to defend religion, but many religious people are peaceful loving beings who would not attend a church that taught hatred.

And would just like to add, as per what passiveporcupine pointed out to me, labeling it as simply an 'all religions' problem ignores some important nuances to the situation and conversation. I wasn't trying to just say all religions are bad by default.

From here I think there may be a good opportunity for a conversation on how certain things are presented to youth based on their tendency to trust every word their parents' say. But that's a big can of worms, and possibly detracting from the current issues.

Thanks for your time.
