Misguided fears

Are you scared of Muslims? Wake up! (And I hate hearing or saying "wake up!")

Cops and their religion of officer safety, combined with "I don't make the laws, I just enforce them", are much more dangerous to you, personally, than the vast majority of Muslims will ever be.

You will probably never even personally see a dangerously radical Muslim, but how many dangerously radical cops do you run across in a day? You don't know, but since they are all wearing the visible gang symbols- the badge and uniform- you had better assume they have chosen to stand against you.

It frustrates me that people will rant endlessly about some threat from people they'll never encounter, while worshiping the brutal thugs they see every single day.

Worry about defanging the real and present threat, then we can move on to things that are less likely. And, make sure no religious notions are EVER allowed to become "law" or to be otherwise imposed by "government" and the threat shrinks even further- down to as close to nothing as is possible in this imperfect Universe.



  1. "I don't make the laws, I just enforce them." Hmm? Reminds me of the Nazi defense at the Nuremberg trials after WWII. (Say this in your best fake German accent.) "I vas only following orders." Much of what the Nazi's did, their atrocities, were passed into law.

    1. Milgram's experiments with ordering unsuspecting volounteers to administer what they believed was a lethal electric shock to actors, were based on Adolph Eichmann's defence that he was only following orders.

      Unfortunately it seems that around 60% of those in the trial would follow the orders.
