[size=7]One suspects the question is structured to elicit the answer you want to hear, or to provide you with a basis for argument and ridicule if you don't hear the answer you expect.
Upon what basis is it reasonable to describe muslim fundamentalists as fascists? Do you actually know what fascist means, or are you simply puking up the propaganda du jour of the right? Do you consider the threat of muslim terrorists to be the most important matter with which the next president must deal? If so, why do you expect others to agree with you?
Do you intend to suggest that no other criterion would be valid for the voter?[/size]
No, it's a loaded question.
No, it's a loaded question, because it assumes that there is such a thing as a muslim fascist, and it assumes that a putative ability to "protect" us from muslim terrorists is the sole criterion for determining who is best for the job.
Don't puke up rightwingnut propaganda, and i'll stop talking about how you puke up rightwingnut propaganda.
What was the question again?
In your closed world Islamic fascist and Islamic terrorism does not exist... how nice for you.
The question is:
Who is the best Presidential candidate to protect this country
and our allies against Islamic fascist and Islamic terrorism ??
I dont think waterman realizes that Fascism and Muslim fundamentalism cannot coexist.
Define "islamofascism," and then prove that it exists. You're just making **** up, and in the process, peddling rightwing propaganda.
The term Islamofascism was first used in 1990 in Britain's Independent newspaper by Scottish writer Malise Ruthven,
who was writing about the way in which traditional Arab dictatorships used religious appeals in order to stay in power.
Islamic Fascism is really a modern phenomenon.
It is basically a 20th century totalitarian movement - like fascism and communism.
Islam existed before Islamic Fascism, and will exist after it.
Islamic Fascism is designed - like fascism and communism - to appeal to idealistic young people
with a utopian future where the world will be "cleansed".
It really started with the Iranian revolution in 1979, and used to be called "Islamic fundamentalism".
Other names for it are "Islamofascism" or "Islamism".
