    I have to disagree that it is isolated. This sort of shit is being drummed up by the tea baggers, birthers, and anti-health care reform astroturffers. I find it hard to believe that this wasn't related to the town hall meeting he had the week prior.

    The majority of the country, or at least tof he electorate, moved on last November. The morons, birthers, the "I want my country back" screamers and similar are a small but very dangerous minority.

    W/out sounding like I don't care about the vandalization or the liberties of others, must we continue another thread of this magnitude. Some of the memebrs who have posted comments sound foolish and just out rt stupid. Not because they don't share my views but because they have taken much outta context and misquoted many statements. Who the hell wants to see that in yet another thread? Isolate it to one...please

    Is there a SINGLE forum topic started by African-Americans on this site that is NOT about race?? Especially Blackguy4you - this person seems to be obsessed with racism and negativity... please go see a doctor about this as you almost sound "dangerous" to me.

    eh travelstud- if i didn't know better i would swear you are stalking me. or at least trying to start an international incident. but dude - no can do - you don't have what it takes.

    but tell you what, i'll play along for the time being... - if you look to the top right of your screen there is something that says S E A R C H. Right to the left of it there is an empy white space - you can do a search that way - or even easier feel free to click on my name and find how many topics I have actually started and and those that i have started on race.

    I'll be here when you get back- go on now ...icon_rolleyes.gif

    I have two things to say about this.

    First, I don't watch TV but I follow the news on the Intertubes (which is just as bad if not worse). As it so happens I haven't been home to the U.S. since 2003. My impression is that things have taken a turn for the utterly insane. The level of hostility in the rhetoric is way hotter than I remember it since my early childhood. I take that as a sign of change, but I also recognize it as incredibly dangerous.

    Second, there is a judge who lives around the corner from me. He has TV cameras and whatnot outside of his house that is routinely vandalized with Swastikas and death threats from the local skinheads and other riffraff this guy has convicted. I wonder how he can live like that? I wonder how the local authorities can fail to take this kind of stuff seriously? The attitude seems to be, oh well, they are kids. I don't see it that way.

    Isolated incident my ass. There's hate crimes committed against Jews in America all the time. Most don't make the news. Oh, and there's still far more hate crimes against Jews than Muslims in America, and this is even after 9-11.

    Lets turn that around. There are far more Jews in American than Muslims. .... so it would only make sense that we would have more incidents. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_the_USA We also tend to be more integrated with non-Jewish society than those who follow Islam.

    Islam is at higher now. Your statistics on your wikipedia findings are almost a decade old. Also, the number of attacks compared to population are higher on Jews than on Muslims.

    Hahaha

    I read the title of this thread and the one directly beneath read "anyone using penis extenders?". So no, it looks like our society isn't really moving along.

    I can't find any reference that says Congressman Scott is Jewish, so painting a swastika on his sign would have as much effect as calling me a nigger. It really shows how stupid the vandal was. It also shows how the Republicans can whip up anti-Democratic sentiment by spreading lies and instilling irrational fears about health care reform. How can any of the voters be against better health care at a lower price ?

    I would be careful venting that one group is attacked more than another while expressing some level of frustration with the comparison...especially when implying that after 9/11 we would have expected the attacks on Muslims to surpass those on Jews.

    That you singled out another group, especially Muslims, suggests you have a particular problem with that group.

    Rather than comparing, how about neither being attacked?
