We Won't Bury You

As much as I hate the "red state-blue state" distinction, and loathe the "fuck the red states" attitude, certain things make me feel that there is some credence to that. For example, people in Tennessee don't want a Muslim cemetery built. Soundbite orgy!

"We know for a fact that Muslim mosques have been used as terrorist hide-outs and centers for terrorist activities[.]"

Yes, and I know for a fact that people in North Carolina were probably one of the main reason Eric Rudolph stayed hidden for all of 7 years. Hey, everyone! Let's kick out the North Carolinians!

"Ladies and gentlemen, you may think this is far-fetched, but that is what the Jewish people thought when the Nazis started taking a small foothold, a little at a time, in their community[.]"

Sweet goddamn. People who are talking about supporting religious discrimination are comparing the other side's entire faith to Nazism. If this plan goes forward, how many Muslims do you think will be kicking over Christian gravestones? None? Well, how about the reverse?

"We don't need bin Laden's cousins in our neighborhood."

And I don't want bigoted rednecks in my country. But that doesn't mean that I automatically assume that anyone from a state that voted for Bush holds emnity towards members of an ethnic or religious group. So deal with it.
