As I suggested, I do speak up when people I know and associate with say things that overtly, or suggest, a point of view that is immoral or not factual. Those people are the “sea” I swim in. I go on record. If you want to promote immoral ideas and actions you’ll get push back from me.

astroboy483 you’ve changed the terms of the conversation. When you speak of your own obligations, they apply only to people you “know and associate with.” But you expect Talia to speak out against people she neither knows nor associates with. I think you can see the difference. I agree that we should speak out against those who commit violence in our midst. But Talia, an American citizen born and raised here, is no more responsible for ISIS than I, a white man, am for Dylann Roof, the white supremacist who killed the worshipers at a South Carolina Christian church.
