Shmulevich's arrest has chilled me to the bones. This is a political arrest, an arrest because of a "thought crime" and it has happened right here in America. For those who haven't read the book 1984 I suggest you do. I don't know whey there isn't more talk about how this symbolizes a scary turn for America. As for Bill O'Reilly, I can't forgive him for the opinion he expressed last night. That is how I feel about it. I would hope that all patriotic Americans would boycott his show and I am sure that would bring him down quickly. If you can't feel the chill then you don't understand history. America wasn't supposed to have politically motivated thought crimes in our governmental system but now we do. The liberals are turning us into a "Big Brother" totalitarian state.

We should put Bill O'Reily's book "whose looking out for you" in the toilet.

Just off the top of my head, I don't think we should focus on O'Reilly. Respond to him, certainly, but he's as entitled to his opinion as Shmulevich. IMHO, the focus should be on hate crime legislation and we should be looking at our respective states and taking the matter up with our legislators, especially the more "progressive" ones who want to regulate our emotions and forbid expression of the ones they don't like or that make them uncomfortable. I've heard the Koran flushing called both a hate crime and an act of intolerance. I see it rather as outrage and rebellion against Muslim intimidation. I won't be at all suprised if Korans show up in toilets all across the country.

To flush anyone's holy book down the toilet is a sin, period.
