Throwing red meat to the lions

Bobby Jindal may be serious about running for president, but he isn’t a serious presidential prospect. He’s just another irresponsible demagogue throwing red meat to the lions.

“Let’s be honest here. Islam has a problem.” Those are key sentences in an incredibly hard-hitting speech that Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal will give in London on Monday. It is the toughest speech I have read on the whole issue of Islamic radicalism and its destructive, murdering, barbarous ways which are upsetting the entire world.

This was written by Larry Kudlow, arguably the biggest idiot on CNBC. Change a few words and dates, and you could as easily write,

“Let’s be honest here. Christianity has a problem.” Those are key sentences in incredibly hard-hitting speeches that Native Americans, Central Americans, South Americans, Africans, Middle Easterners, and Asisans for the last 1,000 years and especially the last century. It is the toughest speech I have read on the whole issue of Christian “manifest destiny” and its destructive, murdering, barbarous ways across the entire world.”

Kudlow is a complete dope for thinking we’re any better than they are. And Jindal is a jerk for trying to score political points with the hayseeds that populate the grassroots of his party by demonizing an entire religion and its 1.6 billion adherents, of whom approximately 1,599,999,996 of whom did not commit last week’s terrorist attacks in France. Their inflammatory rhetoric is equivalent to saying that if 4 members of the Ku Klux Klan calling themselves Christians torch an African-American church, then all 2.18 billion of the world’s Christians are racists and arsonists.

Let’s be honest here. The problem isn’t Islam. The problem is terrorism. We need to understand what causes terrorism, how terrorist groups attract recruits, and who they are and where they are. And then take them out. By merely slinging hate speech at the world’s Muslims, Jindal and Kudlow aren’t doing a damn thing to help solve the real problem.Roger-Rabbit-icon1
