“The Sky is Falling! The Sky is Falling!”

I’m getting really bored with neo-nasty alarmists trying to get everyone up in arms over baloney.  I read many papers-on-line and saw some very strange comments last week from people who are walking around without taking their medications.

One goofus said Obama might really be working for Osama Bin Laden!  Another knew O was a part of a world conspiracy by showing a graduation photo with him giving some “secret handshake”.  One said he was the Anti-Christ.  Many redirected their accusations from O to Muslims in America who are trying to wipe us all out because we’re “infidels”.  Some suggested we put Muslims in detention camps ala the Japanese in WWII. And most believe that ‘political correctness’ is a huge cover-up by the government and the media to hide this whole “Marxist-Muslim-One World Government conspiracy”.

I’m glad these people don’t believe in political correctness because now I can name them for what they truly are: alarmist whack-jobs.

These are chicken clones of the same dimwits who warned us against communists and fluoride in the ‘50’s, the collapse of America’s moral order in the ‘60’s, the complete wiping out of the human race from Aids by the year 2000, millions of kids kidnapped for Satanic rituals and kiddie porn and ‘End-of-the-World’ predictions by Biblical prophecies and Nostradamus.  Did any of these things ever happen?  Certainly we could document some cases for each example but REAL threats that might have toppled America?  C’mon!

So now – before everyone hides under their beds to protect themselves from crazed Islamic terrorists running through the streets killing everyone in sight, let’s take a deep breath of rational reality.

Are there nut fringes of Islam?  Of course.  They probably account for 1 or 2% of that religion.  Probably pretty much the same percentage of Christians who murder abortion doctors and start “Christian” sects of their own like David Koresh and Jim Jones.

Does the Koran declare a holy war on infidels?  Sure – outdated sections of the book thousands of years old, when “infidels” were in the minority.  Kind of like passages from our own Old Testament which demand stoning to death of adulterers, no beards shaved, and permission to have slaves. Only a few nuts believe this junk today.

Will there be isolated terrorist attacks against which we can do nothing?  Sadly, yes. In a country of over 350-million people, we’re probably lucky we didn’t have more from all extremists.  And yes, we should be vigilant and security conscious.  But we shouldn’t be afraid of “bogeymen” falling from the sky who exist only in the minds of whackjobs.
