tj85016 saidthat's because they're building their own little caliphate in Detroit - like most of Europe, we will rue the day we let these muslim scum bags in
I'll tell ya, I'm in Detroit often and in Dearborn Heights and Dearborn, almost nothing but.
Maybe you should reach out and be more neighborly, rather than make assumptions.
That's a good point.
At one time, people made all sorts of assumptions about those of us who are gay. Actually, making such assumptions has not completely ended. It was said that because we cannot reproduce, we have to recruit. It was said that if any city enacted legislation to protect our rights, all the gay persons in the country would migrate to that city. Of course those assumptions were eventually demonstrated to be lies. Having experienced this, we should be careful not to be bamboozled by claims that most Muslims are potentially violent and are determined to take over the world.
At one time, blacks were characterized as uncivilized savages little above apes. There were cartoons showing ghastly looking black men intent on raping little girls. Such characterizations enabled the KKK to grow and also resulted in Jim Crow laws and traditions. People who are socially aware will realize that such tactics can be, and are being used, to demonize other groups of people, including Muslims.
It is only a small minority of Muslims who engage in or support terrorism or other acts of violence. In fact, many imams preach against such behavior. Unfortunately, because preaching against violence does not make exciting and attention-gripping news, the media rarely report on it. The result is that people of limited perception see most Muslims as potential terrorists.
Those who demonize all Muslims as threats to our civilization are guilty of bearing false witness. They lack either the ability or the willingness to think clearly and analyze. Instead of stooping to the level of the small number of Muslims who are renegades and intent on using all available methods to force their will upon others, they should set a better example.
