Proving the point
The young Muslim politician made a light-hearted and ACCURATE comment on the influence of the Tribe, including a common and NON-TRIBAL metaphor about Ben Franklin. Franklin was a Mason, not a Tribal.
In response, Franklin percent of Repooflicans and Franklin percent of Democrats tackled her and piled on, INTENTIONALLY misinterpreting the innocent Franklin reference.
Thus proving her point 1000000000000000000000000000000 times more strongly than she intended.
Unfortunately she surrendered to the squashing.
I'm still waiting for JUST FUCKING ONE politician to stand up against the crowd, to stick with the truth on ANY issue. I would love to hear:
"No, I won't apologize for speaking plain and obvious facts. You need to apologize for being tyrannical monsters."
But I'll never hear it. Never never never. Nothing will change, nothing will improve. We're fucked.
= = = = =
Update: She may have apologized once, but by god she's standing UP now
against the same neocons who tried to silence her.
