I love it when someone points out the obvious. Especially when they do it in an entertaining way. And when they can thumb their nose at the government run media while doing it, hey, it’s a bonus! That’s why I’m glad to see that our resident cave-man blogger has decided to do just that with regard to what I like to call the other MSM, the Muslim Silent Majority. Well, to be truthful, I just thought of it, but it does fit the description, doesn’t it?

The question is, just where are the peace loving Muslims who oppose any violence in the name of Islam? The Troglopundit has a few well thought out suggestions for both MSM’s.

Here’s the thing: I think it really is a small minority of Muslims who want to strap explosives on and pull the cord in the middle of a crowd of soldiers (shoppers, diners, schoolchildren) for Allah. I think that small minority is giving the rest of Islam a bad rap.

I have no evidence to back me up. In fact, the very fact that the MSM isn’t pushing a “peaceful Muslims criticizing violent Muslims” storyline would seem to contradict me. If there were anything there – anything at all – the MSM would be all over it, if only to prove that Americans are jingoistic ignoramuses.

But. If I’m right, why the hell don’t all the other Muslims – the non-murderous types – stand up and tell their more violent brethren to sit down and shut up?

Hear! Hear!

I would love to see these people who proclaim peace begin pointing their fingers at the radicals causing all the intolerant trouble, but that’s the problem with tolerance, how far does one take it? If I am tolerant of ones misdeeds to the point of becoming an accomplice to illegal activity and violence, I become as guilty as if I had committed the act myself. In other words, if you look on and do nothing when you see evil being perpetrated, you have the onus of that evil upon you as much a the evil doer.

Someone who can rationalize that sort of turn-your-head attitude with regard to people of their own religion, but judge someone else by some supposed higher standard has twisted reason and justice to the point of being unrecognizable and deserves no tolerance at all in my book. Nor will they receive any from this robot.

I can barely write abut these issues without the veins in the side of my neck protruding in a throbbing fashion. Much to his credit, Lance takes a much calmer approach. I would encourage you to see for yourself.
