Why can`t the media ever be honest..?? The deliberate taunting,and de-humanizing of Muslims,has a political goal.. Get the Arabs so angry they exact revenge,to make Pres Obama,and Democrats look weak.. BENGHAZI.. was a video created by American right wing extremists.. It worked..Four Americans were killed,as a result of that video.. Ahmed Abu Khattala,the terrorist mastermind,confessed to investigators,YES,Benghazi was revenge for the Muslim hate video.. It doesn`t stop there.. Kevin McCarthy told Fox News that the House of Representatives, Benghazi committee, was formed for the purpose of politically attacking Hillary Clinton.. There is NO limit to the disgusting behavior of conservatives,in their perverse lust for power..If some innocent Americans are killed.. SOOO  WHAT..??

The Conservatives in the Republican Party are trying to force women back into their strict Second Class Status.

Unless someone is pushing their religion on me or using their religion to justify bad actions I just don't care.

No religion has a monopoly on their believers using their religion to justify that which they want to do.

Bill Maher..?? Maybe you haven`t seen his movie "Religulous".. Bill is an equal opportunity religion basher... Christians can always recall Auschwitz.. A monument to their religious superiority ...Unfair you say.. To paint all Christians with the same broad brush.. Isn`t that exactly what the Right Wing extremists are doing towards all Muslims..??

Religions and VD have much in common.. Both can be contagious,and both can be  deadly...Penicillin can cure VD.. There is no cure from religion.. Many ask why nobody steps up to stop radical Islam.. I`d say it`s the same reason we can`t stop radical Christians ..They`re masters of hate,while they play the victim card..ISIS is to Arabia,what the KKK was to the USA.. Terrorists with their faces covered,on a mission from God,or Allah...
