Terrorist Lover, Who Me?

Hat-Tip to Ralph Luker at HNN

Here are the results of a quiz I took over at GoToQuiz that answers the question of whether you want the terrorists to win.  Unfortunately, it turns out that I do.  This is very surprising and just a bit disappointing.

Your ‘Do You Want the Terrorists to Win’ Score: 94%

You are a terrorist-loving, Bush-bashing, "blame America first"-crowd traitor. You are in league with evil-doers who hate our freedoms. By all counts you are a liberal, and as such cleary desire the terrorists to succeed and impose their harsh theocratic restrictions on us all. You are fit to be hung for treason! Luckily George Bush is tapping your internet connection and is now aware of your thought-crime. Have a nice day…. in Guantanamo!

Do You Want the Terrorists to Win?
Quiz Created on GoToQuiz

This is not a good way to start a Monday.

In all seriousness, however, the scary thing is that these are the terms of our national political dialogue.

    You seem like a nice guy and your blog is enjoyable. However I would challenge you to read something like littlegreenfootballs.com for one week. People need to get a better understanding of what is really going on in the world, just how prevalent the problem really is. Loved the quiz, I scored a 0.

    Shelley, — I’m not sure what your comment implies, but let me just say that I read articles on a daily basis from the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Washington Post. In addition I stay on top of the following magazines: The New Yorker, New Republic, The Nation, National Review, and Weekly Standard. Sorry, but I think I will stay away from a source with the name of “littlegreenfootballs.”

    Thanks Chris.

    OK, I am sure I am going to regret this. But I also read the Wall Street Journal and the Weekly Standard. All I meant was that there are tons of sites that bring forward countless articles that never see the light of day in the publications you listed. But why bother, your mind seems to be made up and you and your friend got your digs in too.
    Please do me the favor of deleting my posts. Have a nice day.

    A good number of those questions can’t be honestly answered anyway. While I only scored a 32%, I realized exactly what it’s trying to do and skewed the results. If I had voted closer to my true beliefs (which weren’t really options there) I, too, would have been around 94% and I’M A SOLDIER. Oh well, polls don’t really mean anything anyway.

    Cheers,

    Obviously this is just alot of silliness. I lost my cousin on 9-11 and I am in bed with terrorists?

    That was fun though clearly more Liberal Clap Trap — I kept my answers as close as possible to true where it “allowed” it.
    My score= Score: 23%
    That’s okay Kevin, I still like many of your approaches to teaching, and have even saved a number of your comments for use in a project I am working on about how a teacher is formed by experience.

    Hi Richard, — Sorry to hear about your score (LOL). That sounds like an interesting project; I hope you will keep me in mind and send me a copy.

    Kevin,

    I scored a 72%. However, this still makes me a terrorist-loving, America-hating scumbag. I was actually hoping to score much higher. :)
