Quran Burning Threat Response

Muslims burn Bibles and the holy books of other religions virtually every day. Muslims attack Christian churches and synagogues and the places of worship of other religions virtually every day. Muslims tell those of other faiths, in areas they control, that they must leave or convert to Islam or they will be murdered.

Given this history, Muslims must expect to be on the receiving end of similar behavior wherever they are not in control. Otherwise, they are part of a culture that has been completely infantilized. That means they have never progressed beyond a mental and emotional age of perhaps as high as age five. It means they are truly, completely uncultured and uncivilized barbarians who have no sense of individual responsibility and no concept of human nature.

That brings us to the (unrealized) threats to burn Qurans a week ago. Muslims reacted to the threats as if Pastor Jones had threatened the nuclear destruction of Mecca. They rioted, and murdered a number of people — as senior U.S. officials knew they would. President Obama and his cabinet secretaries knew Muslims would react in a completely irrational and uncivilized manner — that's why they put so much pressure on Pastor Jones not to go through with his Quran burning threat.

Look — I am against book burnings of any sort. But I also know we wouldn't have heard anything about this threat if Pastor Jones had proposed to burn a stack of Bibles, or copies of the Bhagavad Gita, or the Dhammapada, or the Book of Mormon -- or an American flag.

Given all this, there's something that needs to be said:

Alternatively, try to at least pretend you're civilized.
