Do you need a mirror for this?

Just a few thoughts about the embassy violence this week.

It appears that the reason that some Islamic extremists are mad at the United States is this stupid anti-Islam movie that some guy made. You see, based on what they've been told of the way the world works, or at least the way the world they're familiar with works, it would be impossible for some anti-Islam extremists in the United States to make such a movie unless it was supported by the United States government. It's really just inconceivable to them that the intolerance of a few extremists is not typical of everyone in the United States and our government.

In response, conservatives in the United States are arguing, as they have argued before, that the actions of the people who attacked and burned our embassies and killed our ambassador represent the actions and beliefs of all Muslims. You see, based on what they've been told of the nature of Islam, it would be impossible for some anti-American extremists to take such actions unless those actions were supported by Islam around the world. It's really just inconceivable to them that the intolerance of a few extremists is not typical of all Muslims.

Wait, what?
