I've had my fill of Middle East Muslims

I've had my fill of Middle East Muslims

I am a graduate of Mary Washington College, where I took a world religion course in which I was taught that Islam was the most peaceful and tolerant of all religions. But I have eyes and ears and what I see and hear is endless intolerance, hatred, and violence.

I don't see a few extremists or isolated incidents. Repeatedly, I see the streets of Middle Eastern cities flooded with Muslims who want Americans dead. The next person who tells me that Islam is a peaceful religion is going to get a well-deserved punch in the face.

Go hold hands and sing "Kumbaya" with somebody else. That absurd movie "Innocence of Muslims" is grounds for violence?

Speak for yourself, Secretary Clinton. Don't apologize for me. I am no longer the least bit concerned about offending Muslims. This is one 50-year-old, lifelong liberal Democrat who is going to vote for a Republican for the very first time.
