Only USians use the term Liberal. Unless, I guess, your a Liberal Democrat.

You're.


No way. I vote Labour. Every time.

Not your. Sorry, but I think asking a nation at war with mainly Islamic countries whether or not they are afraid of Islamic countries is a bit silly.

It's Orwellian thought control, so typical of the left: we change the meaning of words, or create words, and the concepts follow. The concept here, encapsulated in that single, newly-made-up word, is, "Fear of Muslims is categorically irrational and worthy of ridicule". Well, guess what? It's not (as even those of us who needed a reminder can plainly see from the events of this past week).


It's not Orwellian at all. You might want to read 1984, or even better, if you want a book that actually reflects reality, Huxley's A Brave New World.

Orwell is quoted as being annoyed by the 'promiscuous use' of the word fascist. A lesson you've yet to learn, I see.

If you don't get them first off, then it means you have to work at it.

Also, it's your, not you're.

You got completely owned. You ignored it as usual.


Nothing really news worthy here. So why not just make another thread from a lefty blog attacking the party not in power?

Absolutely correct.
It's a bit like if you are paranoid and it is true that everybody hate you because of this, then... you are no longer paranoid. :twisted:

that question seems to lump together two separate things. Islam != set of muslims. There is islam the idea (I guess the compilation of ideas in the quran and a few other sources) and the other set are a group of people who apparently adhere to those ideas.

Here "liberal democrat" would be redundant. It was just an example.

Not understanding proper English grammar and usage isn't a "typo". Now he's rubbing dinner on the table and his face, throwing it around at people, and going "Ya-yaaah!! Baaa-baaah-waah!!!!", as he fills his diaper again purely out of spite. (Speaking metaphorically, of course, about his last few posts.)

You get way to stressed over sugar. Also, please stop the insults & personal attacks.

Even if he didn't understand the difference, who freakin cares?

I understand the grammar perfectly fine and regularly make the mistake, I just usually catch it and fix it because it is a pet peeve.

Ok, so the question really is, are you such a victim of propaganda where being accused of bigotry when you are simply acting in accordance to reality is something you should feel awkward about?

This line of thinking is evil and disgusting.

While not all Muslims are terrorists, nearly (and I mean 99.9%) all terrorists are Muslim. To be aware of this is to be considered suffering from a mental disorder? To acknowledge reality is now consider a form of insanity?

You have entered the realm of Orwellian distortion. You may not pass go, you may not collect $200.


Anyone who is not part of the Jihad that plays along with the Jihad is not only a fool, but a danger to all of his neighbors.

"Loonwatch" is transparently apologetic to every act of jihad terror.

Nice knee-jerk ad hominem and appeal to emotion. They link to official documents to back up their claims. If you'd bother to read it at all you'd have seen them.

Nice try.

I have been aware of that site and its mission for quite a while.
That they link to official documents just demonstrates that they link to official documents.

Nothing you said there disputes the facts of the official numbers they cited from government research.
