Homeland Security Level: Onion

Goode, who represents Virginia's 5th Congressional District, said he is receiving more positive comments from constituents than negative.

"One lady told me she thinks I'm doing the right thing on this," he told Fox News. "I wish more people would take a stand and stand up for the principles on which this country was founded."


I wish people could see when they are being caricatures of themselves. Is there a context in which this is acceptable? Some of our 'enemies' are muslim, an all of them are human, does it follow that all muslims, and all people, are our enemy? Is our national 'other', ourselves?
