In response to:

Middle East Mayhem: Congrats Obama,You Built That

A hard fact that left-libs can't seem to get their minds around, ... Much of the Middle East practices what is called an "Honor Culture". One of the characteristics of such a culture is that displays of strength, confidence, and power earn respect while displays of weakness, tentativeness, and vulnerability lose respect. It is peculiar how the left-lib multi-culturalists, while supposedly embracing diversity, refuse to actually believe that people in other cultures think differently than they do and react differently to events and actions than they would. We can only earn respect in an honor culture by standing up firmly for our principles and our beliefs and by being willing to meet threats of force with displays of superior strength.

Blacks and Hispanics have the same sense of "honor" -- the compulsion to retaliate with violent force in the face of the smallest perceived sense of being wronged. It is primitive and childlike, but that's the way it is with many nonwhite cultures. And a good number of white ones, too, like the rural Scots-Irish.

Incidentally, any number of conservatives (e.g., Chronicles magazine types) are sympathetic. It isn't just "the Left."

Mother,
Soon after the original 9-11, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon held a rally in Central Park. In his speech, Robbins beseeched the crowd and asked this question: "Why New York? Why attack New York? We are the most diverse city in the world.
I just never occurred to Robbins and the other useful idiots that diversity is not a high priority with the radical Islamofascists.

diverse" "diversity' is about as foul a word as the F bomb..I am sick of the word and the stupidity surrounding it..it's nothing but a Kumbayah word, a touchy feely O aren't I so tolerant kind of mndset..to comfort the mindless drones who don't have one brain cell that works.

  Remember back in the beginning of 2011 when Obama told us about the freedom lovers in Egypt and Libya living under the oppression of dictators and needing our immediate help to establish democracy in their fair lands?

  You do? So do I. How weird. We should become best friends. Facebook me.

  Anyway … it turns out that the “freedom lovers” Obama coerced lots of Americans to rally behind (and whom he also pimped out with billions of sawbucks from America’s pitiful piggy bank) were bat crap crazy.

  I’m talking crazy on steroids crazy—and not just peaceful crazy like Joe Biden...
