Of course there are decent people in Libya, who don't condone violence, who harbor no ill-will toward Americans or non-Muslims, and who really just want to raise their families, conduct their business, and pursue their faith in peace. There are such people everywhere; it should go without saying.
There are ALSO people in Libya and the Islamosphere in general who DO hate Westerners and non-Muslims, and adhere to one version or another of a very rigidly integrated religious/cultural/political vision that demands submission, brooks no dissent or alternatives, and condones violence and repression to achieve it's ends.
When a huge adoring mob arrives at an airport to cheer the return of the Locherbee bomber, or when huge crowds assemble to burn American flags and scream hateful slogans, or when a huge number of people enthusiastically drag the body of a dead American ambassador down a street while individuals jockey for position to get a good photo of themselves smiling next to his corpse, it leaves little doubt that our enemies are not some fringe element, but a very mainstream and openly acceptable polity in Libya.
The Obama administration and it's unquestioning lapdogs in the media think the most urgent thing to do after any atrocity commited by Muslims is to condescendingly lecture us dumb Joe 6-packs outside the Beltway that not all Muslims hate us (fair enough), that "Islam means peace" (debateable), and that the groups who perpetrate such acts as last week's embassy attacks are rare extremists who have "hijacked" their faith and have little sympathy among the general population (complete nonsense).
Deny deny deny that there is a culture of hatred and intolerance in the Muslim world, because to do otherwise would be politically incorrect. But the instant some lone wacko in the Netherlands or Arizona pulls out a gun and starts killing innocent people, villainize and de-legitimize conservatives in free and tolerant America for creating a poisonous hate-filled climate that supposedly encourages such acts.
This is the double-standard we are forced to live with.
Instead of condemning the attackers and defending freedom of speech, Obama, Clinton, Carney et. al. have chosen to lay blame on a man who made a film offensive to Muslims. The man was whisked away by a SWAT team in the middle of the night on some trumped-up probation violation.
Instead of asking hard questions about, for example, why the security at our embassies is a complete joke, the compliant dimwits in our mainstream media have spent the week throwing a hissy fit over the fact that Mitt Romney has dared to criticize Barack Obama's ineptitude on foreign policy.
Republicans destroyed the economy, Obama is busy saving it; our most productive citizens (the dreaded "1%") are leeches who somehow got rich by stealing from poor people who don't do anything; armed fanatics don't kill, people who make offensive movies kill; not handing out free birth control is oppressive to women; dissent is the highest form of patriotism when a Republican is president, but it's a disgrace to criticize the president when he's a Democrat; the "Arab spring" was a blossoming of freedom, and we had to help the Libyan "freedom fighters" because Qaddafi's forces were killing "civilians" (you know, those nice people with tanks and AK-47s shouting "Allahu Akbar!"); Republicans are racists who hate Obama because he's black, and by the way Herman Cain never led the field of Republican nominees; it's not reckless and irresponsible to spend huge sums of money we don't have, it's reckless and irresponsible to demand spending cuts in return for raising the debt ceiling; those Tea Party folks on their lawn chairs with signs are dangerous extremists, but Occupy Wall Street's trespassers, vandals, and terrorists (5 were arrested in Ohio for plotting to blow up a bridge) are bravely fighting for "social justice".
The electorate is buying this hook, line, and sinker. Obama leads in the polls, even while he leads us into oblivion. Black is white, up is down...it's getting more Orwellian in America by the minute.
