Liberals And Islamic Terrorist

Are liberals more tolerant than conservatives on the issue of radical Islam or do they go through life with blinders on when it comes to this issue. Its seems that the recent shootings at Fort Hood have again brought this division between the right and left into focus again with liberals looking for deep psychological explanations and conservatives looking at the radical religious angle. I do have one question, had the shooter in this case been someone in, a not so mainstream, Christian church would the left be so tolerant of that religion and seek to point the finger elsewhere as they have in this case. I feel safe in saying that would not! The left has little tolerance of Christians, but an abundance of tolerance toward other religious groups. Could it possibly be that Christians do not fit in the so-called big tent of the progressive movement while most all other religious groups do.
I can see no other explanation for the willingness of those on the left to accept the acts of radical Islam as being motivated by deep psychological problems and not religious values. When one stops to thinks about it this explains the little support they show for the war in Afghanistan. They seen to see only a few mentally disturbed individuals as the problem there and not some type of religious fanaticism in the general population. This kind of thinking would led me to believe they would prefer a small army of psychiatrists to be deployed instead of our regular armed forces, possibly some like Malix Nadal Hasan who has proven he can relate to their radical values. The big tent politically correct values of the liberals is getting them into trouble, for in trying to be all things to all people they are quickly becoming nothing to most. This is best shown by their weak stance on the Fort Hood shootings.

It is odd to me that the left is trying to make excuses for this guy. He was made fun of, he had post traumatic stress syndrome, and on and on it goes.The left is trying to make a victim out of the terrorist. It is always our faul that the terrorists hate us according to the left.
In this case I think the policial correct angle is part of the problem but I also think that the left just does not want to admit that a terroist attack happened on US soil while Obama was on watch. And am still left wondering if the FBI was handcuffed by Obama's policies and were not able to act in time to stop this attack.

If Eric Holder and the Justice Department instituted rules that in someway led to this incident at Ft. Hood, they will do everything in their power to prevent this being discovered.

I have no doubt Christians would be hung out to dry if the shooting had been committed by one of our own. They tried that when Scott Roeder killed Dr. George Tiller. As deplorable as that act was, no all Christians were to blame, but the liberal media made us all out to be the bad guys.

What the hell is it with these liberals that they like to make all the excuses in the world for a person, a terrorist, who believes in a religion different than Christianity, but yet they would go out of their way to dig up all the dirt on the person, if this incident was committed by a Christian. These liberals defend our enemy to the enth degree and it makes me sick. These liberals have no sense of morality whatsoever.

Liberals are tolerant of themselves, if it suits their personal interests, but never of anyone who doesn't agree with them.

Fort Hood gunman had told US military colleagues that infidels should have their throats cut.,,

The military is libel in these deaths for being so PC that they allowed him to go without confrontation.

They KNEW what he was and yet they did nothing.
