Man is a Wolf to Man

Homo homini lupus

A FB friend of mine was selling her wares at a fruit stand when a lady came up and asked if any of the cherries were grown by Muslims. The lady didn’t want to support any Muslims.

This is how you destroy the democratic spirit: unlike monarchy or dictatorship which dies when you chop off a single head, democracy dies of 1,000 wounds.

This Muslim cherry episode got me to thinking: Roman emperors from time to time persecuted Christians whenever the economic or political situation wasn’t so good. The race baiting of Jews was official policy in France and Germany in the 19th and 20th centuries for roughly the same reason. Now it’s the turn of Muslims apparently.

What are we playing: discrimination bingo? If so, count me out.
