The Hate Mail Bag this morning contained this eloquent missive from Charlotte, North Carolina, from someone who is less than enamored of the First Amendment and not too firmly in touch with reality:
I surely hope that President Obama does muzzle critics of Islam. How long have our prior administrations as well as our current administration been muzzling critics of Israel? I also think that your Jihad Watch is nothing Islam-bashing…
Enough is enough already….
Let’s see: how long have prior administrations been muzzling critics of Israel? Yeah, who could forget those long prison terms that have been served by the long-muzzled Jimmy Carter, Pat Buchanan, Noam Chomsky, Rashid Khalidi, the late Edward Said, John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, and on and on. The nation’s prisons have been filled with muzzled critics of Israel! Let them out! Unmuzzle them!
Oh, and back on the Planet Earth, if Jihad Watch is “nothing Islam-bashing,” then the worst “Islam-bashing” took place on September 11, 2001, and Muslims around the world have just kept on bashing Islam ever since then.
Enough is enough already!
