Obama supporters fear tea partiers more than jihadists

Politics continues to get quite disturbing as it shows such deep political polarization. A new Rasmussen poll reports that likely U.S. voters have opposite views on what is the greatest terror threat to America. Those who basically do not approve of President Obama’s performance say radical Islamic jihadists are the greatest threat (75%), while 26% of Obama supporters, 1 in 4, say the Tea Party poses a greater terror threat than Islamic terrorists. Among those who strongly approve of the President, a majority sees the Tea Party as a greater threat than Muslim terrorists. Check out the disturbing numbers:  http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/june_2013/26_of_obama_supporters_view_tea_party

We are a deeply polarized nation on political issues. This can be the beginning of a serious threat to civil rights if we do not monitor this trend very closely. Opposing views can denigrate and deteriorate to hate speech very quickly and soon martial in an infringement of free speech and public expression.

Matthew 5:43-44 You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you…  
(Jesus speaking)

    Dear Iron Pen:

    Hello.

    We follow up with three critical questions for our beloved nation, these United States of America:

    (1) 2001 mass murders in New York City …
    Was it carried out by Israelis or by Islamics?

    (2) 2012, Americans murdered at our Embassy in Benghazi …
    Was it done by Mormons or by Muslims?

    (3) 2013, murderous assault at the Boston Marathon …
    Was this crime by Tea Partiers or by terrorists?

    We totally agree with you: Americans, throughout our history, are overall a peace-loving people, having been taught “civilized rights” via The 10 Commandments and The Golden Rule and The Gospel.

    Thank you, again, for writing the real story.

    Sincerely,

    the Williams Family
