Glenn Beck informed America there were over 155,000,000 Muslim terrorists in the world since, according to his figures, 10% of Muslims were terrorists. Since there are 1,570,000,000 Muslims this means an awful lot of them are lurking in dark corners ready to pounce on we Americans. Beck was defended in his number game by Stu Burguieu who argued surveys indicate a high percent of people in Muslim nations have a negative view of American. Of course, within the United States the Tea Party has a negative view of the American government, which according to the Beck standard, makes them potential terrorists. I find it interesting that Beck and his cohorts did not cite any surveys about America from European nations where certainly at least 10% of European Union folk are not particularly interested in defending American actions and certainly do not agree with right wing Republicans. So, add on another 40,000,000 terrorists to the threat.
I assume if we add up all those who hate President Obama and all those who hate “liberals” to the list there are untold millions who would welcome the opportunity to kill a few Americans. Do we term them, “terrorists?”
