PBS-TV had a program about Jackie Robinson, the first black Major League Baseball player in 1948. The program mentioned one particular year in Georgia, when a total of 21 black people were grabbed off the streets and lynched. Imagine yourself as a black person. Imagine the terror among black men, women and especially children. The law did nothing. The white people, the "decent" people, didn't care or were afraid to speak up.
There should have been such a roar over this from the entire "Christian" community, that it could've been heard clear out in Oregon!
The fear some of us white Americans feel over Muslim terrorism is nothing compared to that. Stop being such a bunch of babies and chickens. Stop being such suckers, patsies and chumps to the fear mongering of people like Republican Donald Trump, who just want something from us. Has Minnesota had 21 separate acts of Islamic terrorists here last year? Of course not.
Are Christians any better than Muslims? Probably not. Terrorism in the U.S. is some Christians bombing Planned Parenthood clinics and murdering the workers. That's terrorism. Brainerd's PPM clinic was burned down a few years ago. I knew one of the workers. She was terrified. The vast majority of unholy Christians here remained silent, or maybe afraid to speak out.
If someone voted for George Bush, they aided terrorism. Anyone can make a mistake. I once voted for Richard Nixon.
Bush and Cheney triggered this whole extreme terrorism thing with their wars against Arab peoples. That's where the whole ISIS thing began, from the war crimes of Bush-Cheney. It's time to bring them to justice for their unprovoked attack on Iraq. That would be an act of "anti-terrorism" and might even "send a message."
