Wingers like Rubin are flipping out over this passage from the President's UN speech.
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.
In other words: the future doesn't belong to religious bigots. Seems fairly reasonable, right?
I guess the problem for Rubin and the other Malkinites on the right is that they are religious bigots -- so this would leave them out of the future all together.
But in any case, reducing "freedom" to the "freedom to hate people because of their religion" is a fairly odd tic, and not a terribly helpful sentiment in a supposedly pluralistic, secular democracy.
