Remember when a Danish Newspaper published cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad, it widened the sentiments that Islam consider images depicting Muhammad distasteful. Although Muslims are not allowed to depict the Prophet, they expect all non-Muslims not not to illustrate Muhammad either. As the gap widens between the hard core Left and Conservative Right, the Left have now adopted the tactic of labeling anyone going against them as well, extremists.
When the Tea Parties emerged, Janeane Garofalo attacked protesters as ‘racists’ and ‘Tea Baging Rednecks’. The Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, released a report warning on Right Wing extremists taking the form of returned Military. None more demonstrates this point then during a recent interview with California Assembly speaker Karen Bass in the L.A Times.
QUOTE “The Republicans were essentially threatened and terrorized against voting for revenue. Now [some] are facing recalls. They operate under a terrorist threat: “You vote for revenue and your career is over.” I don’t know why we allow that kind of terrorism to exist. I guess it’s about free speech, but it’s extremely unfair” UNQUOTE
The left have adopted the same tactic that Islam takes on depicting Muhammad, going against their agenda makes you an extremist. Political disagreements should never make you an extremist, and resorting to such extreme labeling is dangerous territory to drift in. Come to think of it, can anyone explain how women seem to be the first ones that use this tactic?
