Libtalker Montel Williams Warns Of Extreme Reaction To Fort Hood Shootings
Lefty Talkers Push Ft Hood Overreaction Theory
Are Americans ready to declare war against all Muslims living in the US based on the shooting spree at Fort Hood? While that may seem preposterous to most of us, to the some on the left, it's a likely scenario.
Do they really believe this, or is it merely a political scare tactic, designed to shift blame from the accused killer to "intolerant" Americans?
For his part, libtalker Montel Williams of Air America Radio was willing to take this several steps further, suggesting that this road could even lead to a second round of internment camps!
Talk about overheated "rhetoric", the very issue Williams cites as a key concern:
WILLIAMS (45:48): We pulled something like this back in World War II when we decided to round up all Japanese Americans and put them in internment camps...The [anti-Muslim] rhetoric... could get out of hand. What do you think?
FRANK FARLEY (Temple University): I agree totally... The possibilities of prejudice and racism and so on are incredible here. We should be treating this as a unique incident and look at the factors involved in this very unique and specific incident and not overgeneralize. Unfortunately, we tend to overgeneralize all the time. The idea that all Muslims are the same is ridiculous...
WILLIAMS: Even if it comes out... that his frame of reference was his religion and that was what was giving him the power within himself to make his stand, that doesn't mean that the religion is to blame.
FARLEY: Absolutely, his interpretation [of Islam] may vary dramatically from [that of] his fellow Muslims.
Hey guys, care to provide bona fide examples of Americans overreacting to this story? It occurred days ago, where are the pitchforks?
Perhaps Montel should stick to peddling fake Obama commemorative quarters and overseeing on-stage teen paternity tests.
