Wayne Allyn Root has written what I think is one of the best responses to the comments of Rosie O'Donnell and the Hollywood Left's flawed view of America, Christianity and Islam. Your can read his full commentary here, but let me share a few excerpts:
"Radical liberals like Rosie and her Hollywood friends are so blinded by their own prejudices and hatred towards America, Christians, and Republicans that they actually believe that conservatives who defend their moral values with words are equivalent to radical Muslim terrorists. Terrorists! Those who defend their moral values with murder!
How bad has America been to poor Rosie?
Here in our Christian-dominated nation, Rosie,an outspoken lesbian activist and mother is a multimillionaire TV celebrity living the life of her dreams in complete freedom.
Here in this Christian-dominated nation, Rosie is able to host television shows, adopt children, publicly express her views, and openly flaunt her lesbian lifestyle. Devout Christians may not approve, but no one takes any actions to ruin her life. She is not imprisoned or murdered for her views or lifestyle choices.
Is Rosie not aware that in any Muslim nation she'd be banned from television, banned from adopting children, and imprisoned for infractions far less serious? Just for being a lesbian she would be beheaded or stoned to death."
"Rosie and many of her radical liberal Hollywood friends, in my mind, can now be officially classified as delusional, paranoid, and living in a fantasy world. Rosie so loathes the Christian leaders who disagree with her lifestyle that she doesn't understand the difference between verbal disagreements and people who would instead cut her throat, stone her to death, and murder her children for the "crime" of having been adopted by a lesbian mother.
The real irony? The reason Islamic radicals hate us so much is symbolized by Rosie O'Donnell herself. They hate us so intensely precisely because America is a free nation that allows an outspoken lesbian to host talk shows, bask in celebrity, give lectures on radical views, and earn tens of millions of dollars while flaunting an unconventional lifestyles."
- "No Rosie, religious Christians don't approve of your lifestyle or your views, but they would give up their lives to defend your right to express those views. That is what makes America and Christianity (and President Bush and the Republican Party) the good guys. There is no comparison. Only dysfunctional, confused, mentally-fragile, spoiled brat Hollywood liberals, who think holding hands and singing will make us all friends, could miss that dramatic difference between America and her enemies, between Christianity and radical Islam."
