Uncommon Respect

Karen Hughes has written an article asking those who want to construct the mosque to demonstrate “uncommon respect” and locate it elsewhere. Following her logic, I would like to posit the following as examples of “uncommon respect.”

1. Dear gay people, please show uncommon respect and stop displaying yourselves all over. Don’t force your gayness on us.

2. Dear black people, please show uncommon respect and stop complaining about racism. Don’t force your problems on us.

3. Dear women, please show uncommon respect and stop talking about equality. We all want to get along.

4. Dear unions, please show uncommon respect and stop asking for better labor conditions. When American industry is strong, we are all strong.

5. Dear person with whom I don’t agree, please show uncommon respect and keep quiet. It will make my life easier and the U.S. safer.
