At the Conservative Political Action Conference, which featured Vice President Cheney as its opening luncheon speaker yesterday, one of the various exhibition booths hawking paraphernalia had some virulently anti-Muslim vinyl bumper stickers, for $3.95, including one that said: "No Muslims -- No Terrorism."

It's not just the insane Muslims we need to stop. We need to take down the Left, before they take US down.
It is open war, and we need to realize it before it's too late. Government functions and legislations should freeze now and we should start preparing for war.
They are all in bed with Saddam and the rest, they have declared a holocaust on us and we do not realize it, we keep believing in the big lie, in their big deceptive policies and legislations that are but a way to distract us from their war prepartions.
90% of war is preparation for war, and they have been attacking us for a long time now. The muslims can be credited for waking us up.
Yeah! me too! Sorry to burst your bubble neighbors, but it is war!!! I SS LAM and LIBERALSS ARE ATTACKING US!
Being firmly religious, I would simply state, that Evil is a very real and tangible force. Personally, while I believe in Evil, Satan, Demons and so on from a religous perspective, I honestly believe we are seeing forms of such evil acting in our society.
It's the only explanation I have for such a massive coordinated assault on every aspect of our Judeo-Christian values. We are facing people in our own country who defend Pediphiles and want to make them out to be "cuddly". People who want to make out cold blooded murderers as "good and decent" family men. People who think we should get feel all "warm and fuzzy" when we see the Osbornes, who the liberal depict as "America's Favorite Family". Hollywood idiot liberals who pump out trash to corrupt our children while badmouthing our country, but then lay claims to our most sacred freedoms in the name of their "art".
Oh, and remember: The Democrats. Nothing else. Their existence is enough to convince me alone. Evil exists and wants to destroy us.
I mean, unless 50% of the population can go collectively insane at the same time, I think I have a valid perspective on this.
Personally, I will become tolerant of Islam when there are churches and synagogues in Mecca, Medina, Riyadh, Islamabad, Karachi, Cairo, Khartoum, and similar locales, and the locals aren't trying to burn down the structures and kill the attendees.
For now, here's where I'm at on the subject. The math works.
That's a great line. Mind if I BUMP it ?
I haven't seen that posted lately, but it certainly bears repeating.
Radical Islam is an insane murder cult; "moderate" Islam is its Trojan Horse in the West.
And I always put "moderate" in quotes to indicate what I think about that!
Or as someone else put it,
"How can you tell a radical Muslim from a moderate Muslim?"
"The radical Muslim has a bomb strapped to his waist, the 'moderate' Muslim is holding the remote control."
These sentinments, in whatever version, should be expressed loudly and often.
However, I know egregious media bias when I see it, so I was moved to point it out to Andrew Sullivan, whom I respect as a pundit.
This appeared on Andrew Sullivan's blog:
PRO-WAR EXTREMISM: I figured some of this might go on at CPAC. Demonizing the religion of Islam, making no distinction between the vast majority of its believers and the few fanatics, actually helps the enemy. Yes, we should call Muslims to account for the extremism and violence in their midst. Yes, we shouldn't be blind to some of the violent imagery and and rhetoric in Islam. Yes, we shouldn't buy the white-washing of dangerous trends in contemporary Islam that some peddle. Yes, we need to challenge the fusion of politics and religion in much of contemporary Islamic thought. But sheer religious bigotry needs to be condemned by those of us in favor of the war just as extremism needs to be condemned by those in the opposite camp.
Here is my response. We'll see if it gets published on the letters page:
Does an offensive sticker really symbolize the whole of the Conservative Political Action Conference to the Washington Post? Why is no one highlighting the fact, also mentioned in the Post article, that it was AN ATTENDEE who complained? Why is no one covering the speakers or the respected institutions in attendance?
I have been attending CPAC for the past few days, and for the benefit of your audience, I must emphasize that ninety-nine percent of the organizations in attendance are serious, thoughtful groups. Among them are the Heritage Foundation, Ward Connerly's American Civil Rights Institute, the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, MEMRI, and others.
The attendees are equally thoughtful. Many of them are students such as myself. Why won't the Post cover the questions asked of the speakers by their audience?
Compare this to the coverage of the anti-war rally on the 18th in Washington. The big media outlets took pains to emphasize that the crowd was made up of families, grandmothers, and middle Americans. I was there, and I know this to be a distortion. The families, grandmothers, and middle Americans were there, but the VAST majority of the marchers were Communists of various stripes who were unashamed to carry the banner for A.N.S.W.E.R.
Perhaps while voicing concern regarding the bigots on the right, you should also be awarding the Washington Post the Raines Award. The bias here certainly merits the "egregious" label.
But, because bigotry on the right concerns me enough as a principled conservative, I will attempt to speak to the organizers on the final day of the conference (tomorrow) to register my own complaint, and I will encourage my friends to do the same.
Do you think sincere leftists will, in the same spirit, actively disavow A.N.S.W.E.R. and start their own movement? From my viewpoint, it doesn't seem likely.
