: >>>Yes, it is very hypocritical and not constructive. Fred rightly believes that the people at AINA who categorically believe that Muslims are bad and evil need to be shown how their thinking is not only false but rooted in the greater prejudices of their mindset. However, in showing the flaws of their prejudice and beliefs, Fred's own prejudices emerge. He makes categorical assumptions about "whites" and what they do against "darkies," and makes gross stereotypical observations about Christians, Americans and so on.
: The people at AINA then see him as a Muslim lover. Fred sees them as droids mindlessly comitted to the American way, which is against the darkies' interests. In characterizing the world this way and in making gross assumptions, both Fred and the people at AINA are acting like big, fat HYPOCRITES, and ignorant people on top of that.
xxx You forgot to include those individuals promoting racist views at Beth Suryoyo & COL in that list. I totally agree with you. I know Fred's intentions are good, but sometimes I think he goes a little too far.
