Compare and Contrast

The video below is a discussion from FOX News comparing the media coverage of the murderous rampages by Major Nidal Malik Hasan and Staff Sergeant Robert Bales. It also discusses the differential treatment of their cases by the military authorities.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this clip:

I had not made the connection until I saw this interview.
I am reminded of "Joe the Plumber" that challenged then candidate Senator Obama about "sharing the wealth."
Within 36 hours of his short interview with now Pres. Obama I knew "Joe" had had a traffic ticket in Alaska a decade previous, he was divorced (and records of the divorce were illegally made public) and that he was not a certified plumber.
In addition, Sara Palin's history was combed through, due to the Alaska connection, to see if she and "Joe" had any connection.
And yet, a few years after the Fort Hood shootings we still know very little about the Muslim maniac that was allowed to stay in the US Army.
You would really have to dig deep to find out where he is being housed, what his physical condition currently is and at what stage his trial preparation is in.
I have no idea when Maj Hasan will be tried. And that is the way our gov't and the US Army wants it.
Maj Hasan ruins the American Gov't narrative. Staff Sgt Bales reinforces it.
Please understand that I have very little sympathy for Staff Sgt Bales. As my son, currently serving in the US Navy, pointed out over the course of the last 10 years Mr. Bales had "re-uped" at least once and maybe twice. His crime is on him... I just wish Maj Hasan was considered in the same way.

The un-American press and un-Americans in general, the Liberals, can feel the power of Islam. The control it puts on people's lives to do evil and get away with it is so thick they can cut it with knife. This is what Liberals want. They lust for the power that Islam gives them. The permissiveness of the 60's and 70's is coming to full fruits.

Even after Islam makes America submit and we start seeing cultural cleansing of diversity; even after we start seeing pistols to the heads of homosexualss excuses will still be coming from the Left. The Christians will be blamed, the conservatives will be blamed and last but not least the Jews will be blamed.

When my political eyes were finally opened to Constitutional conservatism I regretted the US being involved in every 'war' after World War II. I'll tell you why. Its because the enemy has more reason for enmity. A violent act on American shores by a foreign country should be considered an act of war. Congress should have declared war after 9/11 and really punished the entire nation of Bin Laden's, women, children, old men, buildings, schools and mosques should have seen what messing with America brings them- destruction, poverty, disease, dismay and defeat. We should not have lost one more American life after 9/11.

And let me add one more thing. A mosque or a church is like an automobile. Not all parts are glamorous not all parts are visible and even not all parts are essential. I don't think I need to explain this. When the tiny insignificant old lady in my church gives a tenth of her late husbands pension to the church that money goes into a sometimes very large budget. From the supply of toilet paper to the Pastors cell phones to a plane ticket for a poor but able-bodied bricklayer who wants to help a sister-church in Lithuania. Membership fees to an organization of churches of one denomination is another possible fee.

Take that same budget and make it an Islamic mosque and you will see what I mean. Yes there may be 'good Muslims' out there but none are innocent no not one. That widower Islamic woman is now giving money to what? They know trust me. If I know 1/10 of a cent of my dollar goes to the Southern Baptist Convention then a Muslim can bet some of their money ends up in Jihad effort.

We weren't born yesterday we know how the machine works.

@Minister of Brown Beverages, re:
"The permissiveness of the 60's and 70's is coming to full fruits."

Actually, islam is a perfect example of the dangers of religious obedience. The 1960s and 1970s were a call for freedom, equality, manumission and emancipation, not theocracy.

The danger has always lay in socialism - getting something for being rather than for doing. Whether that is being a muslim or a christian, a democrat or a member of some minority is irrelevant.

With power comes responsibility, we who fought for emancipation in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s did not fight to hand over our lives to socialists or islamists.
We are responsible for ourselves. We make our own mistakes and pay our way (but not, in my case, a pastors cell phone bill!).
