Comments: CONCERN

Our political correctness is going to get us killed

It'll be OK:

1. Kiefer Sutherland will make a PSA during an up coming episode saying that muslims aren't terrorists and are really good people;

2. The bad guys will turn out to be either gov't agents or a white supremacist group.

Ms. Sawaf really shouldn't be concerned.

LOL, you're right, Pamela! I forgot that there's always some Big White Corporation Guys who are revealed to be pulling all the strings towards the end of the season.

So a TV show has Sireen Sawaf is “concerned about the image it ingrains in the minds of the American public and the American government”.

Maybe Sireen should be more worried about the images ingrained in the minds of Americans of all death and destruction around the globe caused by Muslims.

And as far as “anti-Muslim statements spewing from the mouths of government officials”, I don’t see it. Instead, I see our government officials, pandering to Muslims and going out of their way to portray Islam as a religion of peace. I actually would like to hear some “anti-Muslim statements” or at least some condemnation, which is way past due.

When Tim McVey blew up that building in Oklahoma City, remember how upset the gun nuts got? When the unabomber hit his targets remember how upset the lefty anti-corporate types were to be under suspicion? When Rudolf bombed abortion clinics, remember how upset the pro-life folks were to be tarred with the same brush? Remember the nice white folks caught up in the anthrax scare back in 2001. Seems like we should all have a little better sense of humor about these things.

Did you manage to catch Showtime's Sleeper Cell, and Sleeper Cell 2? It goes where 24 is afraid to.

Great series, and portrayed really well. We actually bought them on DVD.

Ditto and Amen.

How about concern about the rules of law and Habeas Corpus in the USA? Don't you rightwingers give any sh*t at all about those things which supposedly were once conservative values?

And how much you want to bet when your big bad Peoria "terrorist" finally gets a day in court, all terrorism charges will be dropped as bogus?
