    And we have seen that celebration here on this forum. Victim blaming.

    “It’s OK because they kill people too”

    “They are contaminating good Christian countries”

    And other vile sentiments

    Crazies come in all shapes, sizes, colors, sexes and religions.

    Why must Muslims move to Christian countries? The two religions will never live in complete peace together.

    Maybe we should just accept the occasional violence as a cost of doing business while we continue to allow the great migration.

    Will you say that when your family is the victim of that occasional violence?

    So this is your way of making them out to be just another average "crazy". ... your way of protecting them?

    At least we finally have a lawsuit by Sandy Hook victims against the gun industry and their marketing methods that pushed guns as good for mass killings.

    The guy holds the same white nationalist beliefs as the skinheads in Charlottesville Don called "fine people."

    I don’t see any practical way of instituting a “Muslim ban”. They'll keep coming to the West and there’s nothing you or I can do about it.

    We are on the Titanic, about 100 years away from that iceberg.

    It looks like we've opened the door to a new reason for mass violence--posting the crime in real-time. I'm betting the sickos of the world will start trying to out-do each other with this new form of "entertainment".

    Not many skinheads were in Charlottesville. Certainly not a majority of the people there.

    Are we assuming that all Muslims are fanatical jihadists? Murder is murder. We have to decide if it's something we're going to accept.

    No one is protecting the shooter in that statement though. He's calling him criminally insane. A rabid dog. To be put down.

    How much more support for the idea that he's worthless scum do you need ffs?


    Which violates federal law and won't be winning if it goes to SCOTUS but....... sureeeeeee...

    Humanity collectively decided long, long ago that murdering was not an activity that was going to be accepted. That's why there are police officers and court systems and prisons and capital punishment.

    I quoted him. He said "Crazies come in all shapes, sizes, colors, sexes and religions", and that is ALL he said. You're adding modifications to his words.

    You want to add to it and interpret it? Ok. Then I'll say that what he said brings to mind the platitude "...and some are good people!" It minimizes and hides the extreme evil by burying it in mediocrity.

    Which would include the idea of an eye for an eye kind of Muslim vs Christian terrorism, would it not?

    Which is, again, grossly illegal. What would your point be here?
