Anybody remember pink triangles and yellow stars?

It's still baffling to me that: Half of U.S. still believes Iraq had WMD ,and yet, CNN reports 60 percent of Americans oppose Iraq war.

But here's the latest shocker: A new Gallup poll finds that many Americans -- what it calls "substantial minorities" -- harbor "negative feelings or prejudices against people of the Muslim faith" in this country. Nearly one in four Americans, 22%, say they would not like to have a Muslim as a neighbor.

The poll was jointly done with USAToday. I've always been mystified how and why these media sponsored polls are done? Are they objective? How are the questions presented to the public?

Well, ain't this remarkable:





The poll was taken at the end of July and surveyed 1,007 adult Americans


Wasn't that the same time Israel was massacring Lebanon? And let's be real. American MSM reports on this war were decidedly pro-Israel.

That this poll was even conducted is astonishing. I suspect if you asked people if homosexuals should have special ID you would get quite a backlash....even among the right wing....not so with Muslims. The ratcheting of up anti-Muslim propaganda is in overdrive....or warp speed or something. They could do a poll on who was the worst neighbor to have...
  • Muslims
  • Child molesters
  • Queers/Fags
  • African-Americans
  • Youth
  • College kids
  • Latinos
  • Communists
  • Bosnians
  • Sudanese
  • Jews
  • Alcoholics
  • NASCAR enthusiasts
  • Trailer Park residents
