Right-Wing Fearmongering Will Result in More Terrorism, Not Less

Glenn Beck and other fearmongering can have serious consquences.  Here are the repercussions of Glenn Beck fearmongering as reported by NPR

“Experts worry the controversy surrounding an Islamic center near ground zero in Lower Manhattan is playing right into the hands of radical extremists.

The supercharged debate over the proposed center has attracted the attention of a quiet, underground audience — young Muslims who drift in and out of jihadi chat rooms and frequent radical Islamic sites on the Web. It has become the No. 1 topic of discussion in recent days and proof positive, according to some of the posted messages, that America is indeed at war with Islam.

“This, unfortunately, is playing right into their hands,” said Evan F. Kohlmann, who tracks these kinds of websites and chat rooms for Flashpoint Global partners, a New York-based security firm. “Extremists are encouraging all this, with glee.

“It is their sense that by doing this that Americans are going to alienate American Muslims to the point where even relatively moderate Muslims are going to be pushed into joining extremist movements like al-Qaida. They couldn’t be happier.”

The reality is that Glenn Beck fearmongering will cause serious resentments towards our country.   And serious resentments means terrorism.  Glenn Beck’s language of fear and resentment will stir more resentment and hate and it that will lead to more explosive and fiery speech by the radicals.

And this precisely what Osama Bin Laden wants and people like Glenn Beck are walking into Osama Bin Laden’s trap.
