More psychotic political correctness and the "religion of peace"

Michele Malkin asks "Which of these is a Crime in America?"
A) Submerging a crucifix in a jar of urine.
B) Burning the American flag.
C) Putting a Koran in a toilet.
Anyone cynical and savvy enough to discern the double-standards, and the growing attacks on freedom and liberty, that have been sweeping the country as of late will accurately guess C.

What amazes me most about this whole thing is the lack of consistency. A lot of people who in the past have defended the rights of people to do A and B, and have even argued for publicly funding A and B, now turn around and completely ignore their own arguments for free expression, attacking a person's individual right to do C for fear it is 'hurtful' or 'hateful' to Muslims. Granted, C may be so, but to the same degree, A and B are equally hurtful and hateful to Christians and many Americans, respectfully. However, the concept that everyone should be treated the same is completely ignored by the leftist thought police, and the feelings of one group count, the feelings of others do not. In the unequal-protection-under-the-law, politically correct view, the right to free speech and expression of some people should be violated to keep another group of people from feeling slighted. But only if it is the correct group of people!!! The 'right' of Muslims to not be offended outweighs the personal liberties of everyone else - but in turn the Muslim/liberal/atheist right to free expression outweighs the 'right' of Christians and/or American patriots not to be offended. Muslims and leftists are thusly treated as a super-class, with rights far and above everyone else in this nation. And, even worse, if you're a tax-payer, you get to fund their right to offend you with public art grants and in the public education system (especially at the university level). But if you offend them, you face arrest.

In this bizarro situation, the people calling for special consideration of only Muslims' feelings are not the racists in their own eyes, it's everyone else who is, for daring to suggest that all groups be treated equally, and holding everyone to the same standard. Good Allah, if some folks aren't 'more than equal', then you're a bigot!

The world is going mad. Round is square, up is down, right is wrong, black is white, Islam is peaceful. What next?

Support Stanislav Shmulevich!
