American Taliban

This isn't about those few idiots in America who went off to join the Taliban. Instead I want to briefly mention that some libertarians have formed an unholy alliance with the Christian far right. These people are dangerous, far more so than the Taliban. The Taliban is far away and has no legal authority, while these home-grown extremists can vote and when elected, legislate.

Let's not be tricked by their flag-waving. They are no more American than the traitors who ran off to join the Taliban. If anything they are less, because at least the obvious traitors were honest about their intentions and loyalties.

If you're an opponent of Sharia law and all its oppression, then I'd hope you oppose the same oppression from the Christian right.

Remember, Hitler looked and talked just like the people who voted for him, but he led them down a dark path. Let's not get too distracted by the foreign, different enemy, and lose sight of the one up the street.
