It is beyond appalling to see liberals in both parties decrying the burning of the Muslim Koran by a Florida “pastor” and the backing of efforts to investigate and clamp down on freedom of speech through the Congress.
Harry Reid, resident Democratic slug, appeared on the CBS program Face the Nation and stated that the violent reaction to the March incident was worrisome to U.S. policymakers and military commanders and may require a formal response from Capitol Hill. “I think we’ll take a look at this,” said Reid. “As to whether we need hearings or not, I don’t know.”
The equally repugnant GOP liberal, Lindsay Graham, had the following to say about the same incident in question.
“You know I wish we could find some way to hold people accountable. Free speech is a great idea, but were in a war. During World War II you had limits on what you could say if it would inspire the enemy. So burning a Koran is a terrible thing but it doesnt justify killing someone. Burning a Bible would be a terrible thing but it wouldnt justify murder. But having said that, anytime we can push back here in America against actions like this that put our troops at risk we ought to do it. So I look forward to working with Sen. Kerry and Reid and others to condemn this, condemn violence all over the world based in the name of religion. But General [David] Petraeus understands better than anybody else in America what happens when something like this is done in our country and he was right to condemn it and I think Congress would be right to reinforce what General Petraeus said.
In the words of Garth from Wayne’s World, excuse me while I hurl.
