Subject: RE: BS: Free speech, eh?
I know where you lean on this one CarolC but the main stream media here have covered alot of different stories on the Muslim faith in this country. They've even covered stories of discrimination and criminal acts against the mosques. Even when they have been the victims of crime against them they have not condemned the radical elements of their own religion that most likely were the target of the attack. I'm not saying that they provoked it or deserved it and I'm not saying that the folks that perpetrated the hate crimes against the mosques/muslims were right or had the right. But these were perfect opportunities to set themselves apart from the radical muslim elements and they didn't bother.
