commented on Bill Maher: Extremists Don't Hijack Religions. Moderates Do.
Religion is a tool that people throughout history have used to frighten the masses in order to gain power and wealth.
That said, Maher's rhetoric is very dangerous. He is using a wide brush to cast all Muslims as extremists. This type of speech not only dehumanizes a large group of people, it also helps justify violence and atrocities against these people. (Ironically, religious extremists also use dehumanizing rhetoric to justify violence against gays.)
commented on Who's Hillary Clinton This Time? Comparing Campaign Launch Commercials
This post summarizes everything that is wrong with American politics an d political "journalism."
Instead of looking at consultant created advertising, why not look at her actual record? How about the people she has hired as advisers? How about the source of her campaign money?
Her stand on war and peace? Etc.etc..
Is it any wonder why the electorate is so uniformed?
