Begala called Virgil Goode an idiot and a bigot to say stop Muslim immigration. Begala in 1992 was part of the Clinton team that called Buchanan a bigot to say stop immigration. When the WTC was attacked in 1993 by Muslim immigrants, Clinton and Begala ignored it.

They couldn't admit that Buchanan was right by even having Clinton go to the WTC and giving a speech or issuing warnings or responding to Steve Emerson's investigative reporting. Emerson did real investigative reporting not just talking to government officials as sources. Clinton let the 19 Muslims in as legal immigrants. When WTC 2001 and Pentagon occurred, they did nothing to stop Muslim immigration. They just predicted more terrorism and disrupted our lives.

"What Would Muhammad Drive?" That's easy. He would be driving your car, raping your wife, enslaving your children, and you? You would be dead. There is no fun in Islam and Muhammad drives whatever he wants, he's the prophet. Hand over your keys Infidel!

Michael Ovey wrote a disquisition of victimhood last year, entitled "Victim Chic? The Rhetoric of Victimhood". Ovey writes from with a legal and Christian perspective and all reasonable persons can find value in his POV -I hope.

Some excerpts and a link:

"The rhetoric of victimhood allows us to cast ourselves without qualification as victims, or as saviours of victims, while dramatising our chosen opponents as demonic without qualification." [..]
"Successfully projecting oneself or one's group as victim can result in legislative protection, or the barring from certain offices of one's opponents. Such successful projection can deflect criticism and minimize accountability. This role should concern Christians for two reasons, one relating to justice, one relating to temptation."

"Concerning justice, such successful posturing as victims risks encouraging a double injustice: the injustice that real victims have not received justice, and the injustice that those who do not deserve compassion as victims have received it. Such inversion of justice naturally concerns Christians. Proverbs 24:11–12 tells us that refusing to act for the oppressed risks God's anger, while Proverbs 24:24 describes the curse on those who state the wicked are innocent." [...]

"Where do we see victim claims at work? Such claims can be seen both in the individual and collective sphere. Vitz and others see some psychological practices as encouraging a victim-mentality culture in the United States, particularly in parent-child relations, to which one might add marriage and work. Yet, perhaps greater dangers lie at group or collective levels, because of the ready association with collective guilt and innocence." [...]

Malinois,

Thanks for the link; it's very interesting. There's more on the Designated Victim Group mentality (and the moral contortions that result) over here:

Islam is a dual-face religion. There are a few suras in the Koran that are pacific but most ie over 90% are murderously violent. If a person criticises Islam for its violent nature then a Muslim will quote one of the few passages from the Koran that are pacific.

Again apostasy in Islam mandates a death penalty. If though a person criticises Islam for this, the Muslim response is immediately "there is no compulsion in religion". And so it goes on and on, whether it is the subjugation of women, the treatment of non-Muslims in Muslim nations, the Jihad, forced conversions to Islam etc.

It is the dual-faced nature of Islam, a totalitarian religious ideology that hides behind a few pacific Koranic suras to better camouflage its savage intent, that makes it a formidable enemy.

As to the question what would Mohammed drive? Probably a 4X4 taxi to better run over Infidels.

Mohammed would drive a school bus with a NAMBLA sticker on the back. I understand he really enjoys 9 year old girls, and boys.

It's passive-aggressive to claim insult like this.

There is nothing in the Koran that forbids images of Mohammed. Sure, you can't worship graven images, but that's a completely different matter. It was only when the Danish cartoon issues was trumped up in the Muslim world did Muslims suddenly discover that they offended by this. Trey Parker and Matt Stone noted this in a recent interview, pointing out that somehow reality in the world shifted. One of their early seasons contains a picture of Muhammad -- it was ok then. Suddenly, though, it's not ok now.

In any case, here is my contribution to Everybody Draw Mohammed Day:
