A Call for Ostracism: Charles G. Poole

The following unedited message from Charles G. Poole was forwarded to the Tarrant County Campaign for Liberty mailing list.

They (MUSLIMS) don’t even believe in Christ, & they’re getting their own Christmas stamp! BUT, don’t dare to dream of posting the ten commandments on federal property! This is truly UNBELIEVABLE !!!

USPS New  42-Cent Stamp!!!   Celebrates  Muslim holiday.

REMEMBER  the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103!

REMEMBER  the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center in  1993!

REMEMBER  the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in  Lebanon !

REMEMBER  the MUSLIM bombing of the military Barracks in  Saudi Arabia !

REMEMBER  the MUSLIM bombing of the American Embassies in  Africa !

REMEMBER  the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE!

REMEMBER  the MUSLIM attack on 9/11/2001 !

REMEMBER  all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those  vicious MUSLIM attacks!

Time to celebrate, right?  But what, uh, maybe that good ol’ American value, Separation…?


For less government, more individual responsibility, and with God’s help, a better world.

I responded, in part.

I intend to send him my objections to his bigoted comments. I implore others do the same and refuse to do business with him until he issues an apology.

Ironically, Mr. Poole is guilty of the same belief in collectivism as the attackers, the mindset an individual has value or disvalue unto himself only so far as he does or does not serve his collective identity. The attackers held 3,000 people guilty for the crimes of others. Mr. Poole holds two billion people guilty for the crimes of others. The attackers were willing to give their lives for their beliefs. I’d be willing to bet Mr. Poole is willing to give the lives of other for his.

Being a believer in a voluntary society, ostracism can be one of the most effective tools to shame people from committing irresponsible or immoral behavior. I think public ostracism should be reserved for the grossest acts of misconduct. I also believe this is one of those times.
