Meh....

I'm not digging the racism. Most Muslims don't think Americans are infidels who should be killed. We're no better than Al-Qaeda if we joke about killing off people based solely on their country of origin and religion.

I don't mean to be a spoilsport, but I get easily agitated with the American attitude that we should just kill 'em all. I know this is just a joke, but I guess I just don't agree with the premise it'* based on.

My thoughts also. How many times have you laughed at blonde jokes, redneck jokes, etc?

I'm not trying to start a debate. I admit, maybe it'* a little hypocritical to come down hard on racist jokes while letting other humor slide. I just think with the current state of affairs, the "joke" is a little too close to the general public sentiment.

You know what I mean? Sure, we offer up good-natured jokes about blondes saying dumb things, but I bet everyone knows blonde women who are very intelligent. Nobody (at least not many) people think blondes are legitimately stupid. The same goes for people from the Southern US. We might make redneck jokes, but most of them are off-the-wall. Do you honestly think a disproportionate amount of southerners cruise family reunions looking for a date?

Tensions are already high between Muslims and the western world, and I've heard one too many people (some of them military personnel) make a flippant comment about casually killing Arabs. I have a hard time laughing at the joke because there are a TON of people in the US who would love to see two Saudi Arabian airliners slam into each other.

Maybe I'm picking and choosing too much, and if so I'm sorry for the thread hijack. I just think a joke about killing Muslims is in a different category than most blonde or redneck jokes.

roflmao!!!!

reminds me of this one


Believe it or not...this is the transcript of an actual radio conversation between a US naval ship and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995. The Radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on Oct. 10, 1995.

US Ship: Please divert your course 0.5 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.

CND reply: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

US Ship: This is the Captain of a US Navy Ship. I say again, divert your course.

CND reply: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course!

US Ship: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS CORAL SEA*, WE ARE A LARGE WARSHIP OF THE US NAVY. DIVERT YOUR COURSE NOW!!

CND reply: This is a lighthouse. Your call.
