"A True Liberal doesn't oppose immigration."

So you would welcome Nazis and communists with open arms?

"I skewer republicans for their conservative and ultra conservative beliefs when ever I get an opportunity."

Yet you give Muslims, who tend to be even more conservative, a pass.

"There are billions of muslims on this planet. There are billions of Christians on this planet. Some are good. Some are awful. But they're not all the same."

You're comparing apples and oranges. Is Christianity a political system? Do Christians regard the bible as a legal document as much as they do a guide to faith? You're right, there are good Christians and bad Christians, but there aren't Christians seeking to install a worldwide version of the Christian caliphate. Nor will you find Christians who would support anything close to a Christian caliphate. Nor would you find Christians who believe the Christian laws and customs should be regarded as the basis for civil and criminal law. Many, many Muslims do.

And it's not that all Muslims are bad, anymore than it was true that all Nazis were bad. But they do adhere to a philosophy that is inherently threatening to liberal society.

"I would agree with Muslims not sharing "our" values because there is no such thing as "our" values."

In the US we can each hold different values and reasonably expect that we're not going to get beheaded for holding them.

"We're a fairly deplorable nation, all told."

Then go find somewhere less deplorable. You locked in a cage somewhere?
