Maybe they hate everybody

Unless you live under a rock you have probably heard something about the Cartoon War. As far as the raging fanatic crowds are concerned Denmark is the source of all evil. At first you might think your TV is pulling in signals from an alternate universe because the raging crowds are burning Danish flags instead of American ones and they have all sorts of extremely hateful signs (in English or Arabic, but not Danish) promising death, bloodshed, and tears before bedtime. Embassies are in flames.

All this for twelve cartoons. I would like to point out for the Teachable Moonbats (if any exist) that Denmark has been remarkably free of all the sins usually laid at America's door. Not a superpower, never been a hotspot of cowboy activity, and I'm pretty sure they are not imposing their culture on anyone (except for Legos and you can't really call that imposition -- more of a seduction and who minds being seduced?)

My point being (I do have one) is if twelve cartoons can get this much of a violent reaction, maybe all this hate-America stuff ISN'T because of something WE did. I mean, if you scale the reaction and rhetoric and so on, it looks like our real crimes would amount to something like forty cartoons and a couple knock-knock jokes.

I'm waiting for the Danes to hit the streets carrying a bedsheet-on-a-stick carrying the following message--in English and Arabic, but not Danish: "Pssst--we don't live under shariah. We're not Muslims. Go pound sand."

I'm guessing you're going to wait a while, Bill.

That would just inflame them the more - because we're all s'posed to live under Sharia, nicht wahr?
