Burning A Koran

Can I blame Terry Jones for backing down? The whole world was against him. I don’t know what I would have done, but being a very contrary fellow I think I would have gone ahead with it. It’s not like anybody was offering him a respectable climb down, although I think he has the hope the rage will stop. It won’t, he is still going to be destroyed, but they put the fear in him and fear makes people do irrational things.

It was a beautiful day, but rather than just enjoying it I went to the park and burned a Koran.

It’s probably a crappy and futile protest but I had to do it. As Jones said, “When do we say no?” I don’t know about anybody else, but I’m saying no now.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.
