Skip to comments.Russell Simmons and His Own Sacred Ground of Deep-Seated Hate
Posted on 08/25/2010 7:40:37 PM PDT by TheHawksNest
The rich and famous are usually utterly inconsequential, intellectual featherweights, and yet our celebrity-driven media inexplicably believe that pop culture success earns them a forum in which to pontificate about the heavyweight issues of our time: war, peace, religion, and more specifically, the Ground Zero mosque controversy.
Enter irrelevant celebrity Russell Simmons, whose cockeyed baseball cap is an uninteresting attempt at a trademark headgear a là Donald Trumps sweeping canopy of hair. Interviewed about the Ground Zero mosque for some reason by Larry King last week, Simmons blathered about a cycle of negativity created by those who blame all Muslims for 9/11. Needless to say, no one has ever said all Muslims were responsible for it, but continually hammering on the theme of ignorant bigotry is how the Left demonizes those who are legitimately alarmed about the metastasizing threat of radical Islam. Mr. Simmons, heres a thought: nothing feeds a cycle of negativity like waging worldwide jihad and imposing sharia law.
Simmons argued in the King interview that, hey, we didnt blame all Christians for the first World Trade Center attack. This is undeniably true, because MUSLIMS were responsible for that 1993 bombing. Im assuming, and hoping for his sake, that he meant to refer to Timothy McVeighs 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, although it has been noted innumerable times that Christianity and the Bible had nothing to do with his motivation. But McVeigh is the go-to example for the Lefts insupportable charge of moral equivalence between Christianity and Islam, so they keep trotting him out.

Def, funk and stupid is no way to go thru life, Russ
Shut up and rap, Russell....
On second thought, just shut up.
Thoroughly enjoyable read. This guy nailed it. I like his writing style. Is he ever a guest contributer on Fox News by any chance? I’d like to hear him debate some of those liberal geeks Fox insists on showcasing. He’d be good on Brett Baer’s panel - in Juan Williams’ seat.
On second thought, just shut up.Ha! Seconded!
I like his writing style. Is he ever a guest contributer on Fox News by any chance?Not that I know of, but he contributes regularly to NewsReal and Big Hollywood. Everything he writes is worthwhile.
I hear a lot of people are moving out of the country to Asia and Africa.
I suggest he join them. He would certainly be happier.
both are dangerous to themselves and others.
