However, the reaction to this video isn't even about that, it's about muslims getting pissy over a mocking video, and they immediately go on the streets, create chaos, injure their own people, even resulting in death. The Christian faith gets mocked all the time, especially in Europe, but you don't see us protesting and attacking people because of it. I think it's quite telling. It's a dude who made a stupid video with horrible production about his own views, and he uploaded it on YouTube which everyone can do, so it's not the views of America, or Europe etc. One guy.
And radical Islamists use this as an excuse to encourage rioting and killing in an attempt to further their "cause" of being disrespected when their real plan is the Islamic caliphate that they attempted to create back in the 7th century. Many people either don't realize or would rather think that Islamofascists are stupid. These people are very intelligent and know what buttons to push to promote their propaganda.
They hate America because of Bush? No sooner than Obama is elected, he is referred to as an Uncle Tom and Zionist by Islamists.
They hate our support of Israel? If we stopped supporting Israel tomorrow, it would make no difference. They would continue to try to annihilate the Israelis, then go after the rest of the world.
U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia? Keep in mind it was King Fahd that asked for the troops to be there after Saddam invaded Kuwait and he was afraid the Saudi kingdom was next.
I could go on and on, but the point is that radical Islam is a threat to the rest of the world and we keep allowing them to keep having their way. It was like Hitler in pre-WWII Europe. Germany was given the Rhineland, Austria, the Sudetenland, and eventually the rest of Czechoslovakia. By the time the rest of the world woke up to the appeasement, look at what it took to stop the German war machine.
People may call me a hater of Islam, and that is complete bullshit. I don't care how they live over there. I don't want to bring democracy to the parts of the world that would prefer not to have it. You do your thing, I do mine. Problem is, the radical Islamists don't want that. They take, bit by bit, piece by piece, until it's too late.
