If there are any people attempting to modernize Islam they are losing to the radicals.

You and your friends are a burden to Mother Earth. Don’t you know that?
 March 24, 2015 at 10:08pm
So, what do you suggest, Crow? Forced abortions and sterilizations? Or how about a Stalinist forced famine? How many people need to die? How many are you willing to kill? By the way, anytime the spirit moves you please feel free to unburden the Earth of your presence.

Once again liberals expose themselves as the party of death. Yep, too many people on the planet. No wonder they worship abortion, euthanasia, and radical “save the planet, kill yourself” environmentalism. Hey liberals, feel free to unburden the planet by shuffling off this mortal coil anytime.
does it not register that we have actually put a massive strain on the planet ? what will you say when Scientists say something like " we need to slaughter 1 Billion people in 4 years or The planet will become a dried up wasteland " That's unlikely to happen and i hope it never does happen , but would you say ok for the sake of Humanities future or just stay closed minded as your own children starved to death ?
Honestly we are Growing at such a rate in technology that should we keep this up for 30-40 years we could have more Capable Computers that would last us for likely 100+ more years in terms of Scientific Computing , Trust me I know Quite a bit about computers and I can honestly say that when AMD launches Zen and gets the Fire of Competition going again and if it stays alive for those 30-40 years then we are likely to hit a wall simply because we won't be able to drive down the Node size any farther and it will become a game of Improving performance and finding ways like HDL ( High Density Libraries ) to condense Transistors and past that it will be all Changes in Architecture until new types of CPU's come out that can speed things up.
Honestly you need to be logical about this , it's not a question of should we lower the Population , it's a matter of when we can do it the soonest and when we can find the sweet spot of how many people we can keep fed and taken care of on this planet , More people can exist when we have the means to do it. Would you rather we starve ?
We won't benefit from the masses of people we have today for much longer in history , sooner or later we will have to Limit Populations or just simply Die off

What evidence is there that Islam is going through a reformation, Stuart? The religion is arguably more violent now than it was several centuries ago. Oh, by the way, according to your own liberal playbook you’re a racist for disagreeing with a woman of color.
Hypocrisy is a 1 way street to the drive-by "media". Pinocchio couldn't lie as much as these communist journalists.
It's not a reformation. It's a fundamentalist movement.
False, the internet has been a terrific boon to those seeking to modernize not just Islam but christianity and Judaism as well

This is why, at the end of the day, I can’t really blame our politicians. They are sharks, and act as such. We’re the ones who freely elect them. As H.L. Mencken said, “Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.”

These are the type of people the left cares nothing about. They would have preferred the elderly couple be brutalized rather then defend themselves with a gun.

I guess spitting in Israel’s face time and time again is not enough. Now Obama is going to stab her in the back, just as you would expect from a mendacious, gutless jellyfish.

His bombastic personality can sometimes be annoying, but he is at least his own man and thinks for himself. I appreciated how he took a measured view of the Trayvon Martin case, and I appreciate his sentiments here.

Just more evidence that it’s actually the liberals who are obsessed about race.
Exactly, but my first thought was… who the hell is Chris Hayes and what the hell is MSLSD... errr.... MSNBC?
Not just obsessed with race, but they clearly have a set of "litmus tests" they apply to people with regard to the race they claim - a little like Hitler's measuring stick for whether you qualified as a Jew or not.
I'm just wondering if more people saw this clip because of The Blaze than because of MSNBC.
Actually I believe it's the people in office. They shape their districts according to the race of the people living there. Why do you keep hearing the government wants to stop racism when on every government form you fill out wants to know the race you are? If they wanted to end racism they would remove the race from forms and then all would be treated equally. It's not us, it's them pressing the issue.
Ok, I know this is a tangent, but...
Lately, the Blaze has been posting very long video clips. I know that context is important, but the idea of internet news is that you are trying to catch up with the world in the brief periods where you are not working. To have one to sort through one of these videos (one on another thread this morning was 35 minutes) can be impossible, especially if you are on a phone. I would never want context stripped out, but cutting a clip down to the area being talked about would be a wonderful benefit to many of us. Thank you for listening to my rant!
I’m black…no I’m black! You are a racist...no YOU are!
Black people acting white? White people acting black?
Red heads are all deemed to be nearly as white as an albino…but the earliest record of red head remains are from a province in China and one of the ancient peoples of Babylon (Iraq) are the Assyrians…well known for a lot of the genetic mutation that causes red hair.
The red haired gene is regressive. There are less and less and they will become even rarer. Hey that’s great for the people who for completely irrational and bizarre reasons hate the sight of a redhead, but what about minority status?
Redheads are one of the smallest minorities on earth. Don’t you think we should recognize this and make redhead jokes unacceptable forms of bigotry and hate speech and physical attacks on redheads a “hate crime”. Who’s out there fighting for redheads?
Where is our redhead Al Sharpton/ I think Carrot Top needs to get out there and kick some majority ass and start the united red-haired college fund and the national association for the advancement of redheaded people.
Someone has to step up against the injustice! Stop the hate! “Ginger’s Up…Don’t poop!
Her position: no one can act Black - that's co-opting stealing from us.
Her position: conversely any Black who gets good grades, speaks good English, gets good jobs, doesn't speak rap,...has white privilege and is bad.
She wants Blacks to stay down.
Good thing she was sitting down because if I saw she was tall and black I would have been scared. Probably too scared to eeek my way through half of the video......
@germont, THAT is for sure!!
I’ve never looked down on anyone or thought much about race, either mine or theirs.
My neighbors are my neighbors, my workmates are my workmates, the people I encounter in my shopping center or shoe stores are all, just, people.
Give me a reason to think you’re gonna hurt me, my family or my friends in any way… now that gives me reason to get the hair up on the back of my neck.
I’ve heard more about ‘race’ in the last few years than I’ve heard about it my entire 59 years of life. I’ve never seen so much divisiveness in our nation, EVER!
Race-obsessed IS racist!
Lets talk about The Content Of People Character.
Maybe Howard Schultz should have a conversation about race with Eric Holder and Barack Obama as they have done more to divide this country in the name of race than anyone else in recent memory.
This country was finished off long ago.
Yup Blacks are getting whiter and whiter with all that interracial sex with white women. Sexing themselves into extinction.
"Just more evidence that it’s actually the liberals who are obsessed about race."
...and that the Blaze is obsessed with MSNBC!
I find blacks are more color oriented amongst themselves then any other race. Blacks have derogatory color names for all black shades "Blue Black" "Coal Black" "Redbone" "Strawberry" etc... The lighter you are the more acceptable you are inside the African American community. You never see white folks saying "look at that darker skinned white guy/girl!" Ignorance is ignorance maybe if they focused more on sharpening their intellect and less on color they would realize they are so much more then color. They just need to stop listening to white liberals!
Why don't we all just call each other Americans??
I mean, the legal ones.
And by the way, the term " Brown Skinned " offends me, so don't ever say it again.
"Skin color, Skin color, Skin color, Skin color, Skin color, Skin color, Skin color. Black is good, white is bad and insignificant, Black is good, white is bad and insignificant, Black is good, white is bad and insignificant, Black is good, white is bad and insignificant."
Sick and tired of it!
This video is objective evidence of the effect following dialectics has on people who simply jump on the band wagon because they think it’s makes them intellectual .
First there are no “Black” or “White” people in all of America. Those are dialectical terms made up by the purveyors of racial antithetical war, who are using Applied Dialectics. If you as a person make decisions about someone else simply because of their skin color, if you bring it up in conversation to make a point out of it… your being a racist, or in more appropriate biblical terms and Ethic-ist (Matthew 24, Mark 13).
Second, There is nothing worse than to group people by their ethnicity, gender, belief etc and then bash them or praise them simply because they are part of that group. This is the same exact thing the National Socialists of the 3rd Reich did to the Jews and Gypsies and look how that eventually turned out.
Read Revelation 20 and 21. Each soul is judged according to its works, that identifies responsibility as belonging to the individual and not the group. Don’t be a useful idiot and allow yourself to be sucked into the paradigm of applied dialectics and the resulting antithetical war.
I love the entertainment MSNBC provides us! Nancy Giles proves herself, not only to be a racist, but, a stupid one, at that!
 March 17, 2015 at 10:02am
The backlash against her will be minimal. Can you imagine if some country artist had said similar things about black people? He’d probably be arrested for a hate crime.
Again, the government protected slave owners via the law. So, it was just as guilty as “private enterprise” for the institution and continuation of slavery.
 March 16, 2015 at 1:45pm
Nothing absolves anyone of their wrongdoings, whether government or private enterprise. However, it is government that most often abridges people’s freedom, not business. Whether it’s the monarchies of old or the more recent communist dictatorships, big government is usually the problem. That’s a fundamental libertarian belief, by the way, not that you would know.
 March 16, 2015 at 12:52pm
Private citizens did own slaves, but their actions were protected by the laws made by government.
March 16, 2015 at 12:40pm
If conservatism dies, so does America and Western Civilization. In any event, you libs won’t have long to celebrate as your “progressive” America will collapse under its own weight and the world will be run by the Muslims, Russians, and Chinese.
 March 16, 2015 at 12:23pm
Yes. If you don’t like the fact that a private college doesn’t want you to engage in premarital or homosexual acts then don’t attend.
Your last paragraph is simply absurd. If you actually think private businesses and institutions have been a greater threat to liberty than government there is no help for you. No actual “libertarian” believes this so stop calling yourself one.
 March 16, 2015 at 12:11pm
You really need to change your tune once in a while, Crow. Almost all your posts are about how conservative principles will be extinct within a matter of years or how most Americans actually agree with your own far left world view. Variety, comrade. Try it once in a while.
When someone puts forth some evidence to the contrary I will!
Otherwise I’m going to do whatever I can to remind the people who hold these views they are hopelessly outnumbered, demonstrably wrong, and/or dying out.
If conservatism dies, so does America and Western Civilization. In any event, you libs won't have long to celebrate as your "progressive" America will collapse under its own weight and the world will be run by the Muslims, Russians, and Chinese.
Germont, change the first word of your comment to "When" instead of "If."
So James, your only goal here is to make people feel intimidated and alone?
Do you realize how unhealthy that is? Do you realize that that is psychotic and sadistic behavior? I'm not trying to piss you here. I'm just telling the truth because dude, you need to get some help.
 March 16, 2015 at 12:04pm
Not too familiar with the concept of private schools, are you? Private means they can have any set of values and standards they want. It also means others are free not to attend if they won’t live up to those standards. Voluntary association and freedom of religion are not actually “chilling,” except maybe to leftists like you.
And you are willing to accept that a private instutuion can take a stance on what people do outside that private instutiton that has nothing to do with the functioning of that institution....
...people on this site are so obsessed with what the government is doing that they do not recognize that it has been more often the case in US history that private businesses and institutions are the greatest threat to personal liberty and freedom....
Yes. If you don't like the fact that a private college doesn't want you to engage in premarital or homosexual acts then don't attend.
Your last paragraph is simply absurd. If you actually think private businesses and institutions have been a greater threat to liberty than government there is no help for you. No actual "libertarian" believes this so stop calling yourself one.
It is none of their business what people do outside of their campus if it has no effect upon that campus....especially when it is a completely private act.
And, just to give a broad example of what I said, was American slavery the product of the government or of private enterprise?
Libertarian Socialist = Anarchism or Anarcho-Socialism or left libertarianism…
They are the same groups that cause the riots in the UK from time to time. Many assassinations in history have been from them as well.
They aren’t exactly an organized ‘group’ as many of them are independently minded and they disagree on how far they should go to make their views a reality. But they do have shred utopian ideals… Its a matter to which ones choose to be violent or not.
Private citizens did own slaves, but their actions were protected by the laws made by government.
For that matter, I think its a form of European political belifs...
Europeans system is very different than how Americans view things, and even terminology means something different there... Where far left often means communist, and far right means fascism. You socialists either statists or anarcho-socialists lie in the middle. But they don't understand much of anything out of socialist beliefs... Even their 'capitalism' is 'state capitalism'...
I'm so honored to have a Wikipedia page deicated to my political ideology...does it mention anything on that page about Thomas Paine or Thomas Jefferson?
More information about Libertarian Socialists (and their Anarchist connections)... including their support of collectivism.
They have more in common with the French revolution if anything... The ones who tried to kill Thomas Paine in the Bastille though he agreed with many of their views... Of course by that time he was already being criticized by Benjamin Franklin and others for going 'too far left' crazy... Although they didn't necessarily use terms such as left or right at that time.
Yes...quite often, the government has been used to protect "private enterprise" when businesses trample the rights of individuals, but does that absolve "private enterprise" of those wrongdoings?
SLAVERY WAS A PRODUCT OF THE LIBERAL LEFT (DEMOCRATS FROM THE SOUTH). READ YOUR HISTORY. The northern states want to free them.
Okay...your problem doesn't seem to be with the ideology...but with some who have claimed to hold that ideology.
So, what is wrong with libertarianism?
Nothing absolves anyone of their wrongdoings, whether government or private enterprise. However, it is government that most often abridges people's freedom, not business. Whether it's the monarchies of old or the more recent communist dictatorships, big government is usually the problem. That's a fundamental libertarian belief, by the way, not that you would know.
Okay...you are equating monarchies to other forms of governments. In monarchies, the political power is derived from the "top down" (from the king via whatever religion is dominate) In this form of system, individual rights take a back seat to national stability. In a democratic/representative republic, power is derived from the "bottom up." In this system, power resides in the people. It is much more rare for this form of government to attack individual rights for the sake of security.
Can you provide an instance as significant as chattel slavery (a private enterprise) when the US government (a representative republic) posed a threat to individual liberty and freedom?
Again, the government protected slave owners via the law. So, it was just as guilty as "private enterprise" for the institution and continuation of slavery.
