As a follow-up to my previous post on the subject (Hate comes to Orange County), the reactions of the local Muslim and Arab communities to such vile intolerance and hate is as expected: shock and dismay.
Al Jazeera is, as Hillary Clinton said herself, a major world news broadcaster now, "like it or not". The Arabic version is now the most viewed broadcaster in the Middle East, and the English version has a large audience, especially on the internet. Bearing that in mind, if you were to tell any of these "patriotic Americans" [sic] seen in this clip that their ignorant actions were feeding negative perceptions around the globe, and endangering American lives you'd probably be met with either blank stares or more hate-filled rants about "not in my backyard!" nonsense. Or as Villa Park Councilwoman Deborah Pauly put it:
I know quite a few Marines who would be very happy to help these terrorists to an early meeting in paradise.
Charming. Your comments will likely cause some whackjob to take out a few Marines, Councilwoman. Congratulations.
