The Meaning of the Reverend Terry Jones

"The MSM needed a crazy white preacher man who hated Islam," writes PUBLIUS, and "[a]fter nine years of assiduous effort, and through the wonders of Facebook, they have found him" — A Burning Passion. "The conjuring up of Terry Jones, from his justly deserved obscurity, was an act of reassurance for the MSM and its Leftish base. "

"They need to believe that the real America, the America they are attempting to reform and remould, is composed of people very much like Terry Jones," the author continues. "The international media needs the preacher man as well, to reassure its audiences that Americans really are bigoted crazy white men, and that the Great Republic is on the verge of becoming a Christian theocracy. In war you are suppose to dehumanize the enemy."

I'm not sure what frightens me more about this episode.

1). That the US media is such a threat to world peace and freedom that they can use a non-event to gin up a world-wide riot and destroy more of our freedoms at home? Or...
2). They now the internet has made the task so easy because they can now know so much about people that all they need is a simply database tag search to find someone whose buttons they can press to gin up an event.

More technology like this and they won't have to pay anyone to stage something.

What I found interesting was that the response to all this publicity was to get more Christians to behave more eirenically towards Muslims, and when I pointed that out on my blog it was a secular American who was most critical, and most fitted the stereotype - a member of the irreligious right.
