Tat'dGreaser: It probably won't happen but it would be awesome if this causes thousands of Jihadists to quit because of this. I'm sure a lot of them have daughters.


Which some of them would have killed themselves if their daughters acted like this little girl.

SomeoneDumb: JackieRabbit: SomeoneDumb: Aren't teenage(d) Pakistani girls people? Shouldn't the head line read "...who was shot..."? I thought "that" referred to dogs and things and we use who when talking about people.

Grammar is no longer important. Someone's going to call you a Nazi because you were taught how to use pronouns. Damned educational system. Women should be protected from it.

In this case, it should be "Usage Nazi." I think the grammar's okay.

/notice I left out a who earlier, since corrected


It's ok to be loose and use colloquialisms in casual conversation. No one should get too upset about grammar and usage. But this whole Grammar Nazi thing is used as a cover for the people who never were taught grammar. Misusing a pronoun is not a usage error; it is a grammar error. Usage errors are when someone uses a word that has a similar meaning as another, but in the wrong context-- right vs correct, for example.

liam76: lecas: puppetmaster745: Occam's_Doctor: Farking Islamic fundamentalists

FTFY

re fixed to the original, because while in this case they are Islamic fundys are a plague on humanity no matter what their base religion, Islamic, Christian, Atheist , you name it

I am really worried about a fundie jainist.

A fundamental athiest just has a strong belief in no God.

Fundies aren't always a problem depending on the topic/belief system. I think the word you are looking for is extremist or militiant.


Who the fark decided to label these asshats as "fundamentalists" in the first place?

Their beliefs are rarely more "fundamental" than other peoples. Why can't we use a more appropriate term of "gullible emotion-driven spiteful idiots".

I've never had a problem with someone for merely espousing that they knew the secrets of the universe denied to the rest of humanity. I mean, welcome to all the religious people I know.

It's the spiteful idiots, hellbent on dicking with other people that pull this shiat.

Why give them a term that makes it seem they're being in some manner closer to the source of their religions. Half these nitwits know less about the history of their advocated deities than I do, and I'm a farking atheist.

You want to show me a fundamentalist? Show me a guy that's spent his life studying the ethos and logos underlying his chosen philosophy. Not an idiot yelling in the goddamned street.

I welcome fundamentalists. Idiots can garrote themselves with their own unshorn flea infested pubes.

Protip to most "fundamentalists": being dirty morons with balls that smell like they've been stuffed up your asshole for weeks on end is the source of your unhappiness, not whatever the fark you're blaming today

Bonus protip : people you disagree with don't cause natural disasters. honestly, if gays could legitimately toss off hurricanes whenever they got bored, I'm sure someone would have spent a weekend gobbling knob and wiped you dumbshiats off the map

Looking at the last 50 years, which of these has the highest body count, in the most countries? And yes, members of other sects of your faith do count.

Well, if you give another ten years, the Jews would nominate European Christians.

Tat'dGreaser: brap: That's so shameful it actually elicited a head shake and a tsk-tsk from me.  I don't think I've ever actually tsk-tsked before.

You tsk-tsk'd a Taliban death squad???



I did.  If I were their mother I would pull them around by the ear until they apologized to everyone.
 
2012-10-16 02:57:09 PM  

Rent Party: All the Taliban has to do is wait for attention to be drawn away by whatever shiny thing is next, and they can murder her in complete obscurity, and no one will give a damn.


There are 10000+ man demonstrations over the Taliban attacking her in Afghanistan, man. Where there's barely been a protest half that size even over the drone strikes killing civilians.

There's a reason this is sticking in the news and some of the other stuff hasn't, and that's because the US's opinion does not matter in the region. It's important because Afghanistan actually cares and is reacting against the Taliban finally. And, for the same reason, it's probably not going away, and it doesn't really matter whether US news stops talking about it at some point or not.
 
2012-10-16 02:57:12 PM  

Rent Party: puppetmaster745: Magnanimous_J: The only reason our fundies aren't as murderous is because they don't have the government support that the Muslim ones do. If the average Freeper could get away with a casual lynching or bombing a few abortion clinics without ending up in prison, you bet your ass they would.

Pure speculation.

What pure speculation may look like...

2012-10-16 02:58:32 PM  

WizardofToast: It's great to know that both the western media is acknowledging this happening and that people in the Middle East are rallying in support for her. But the Taliban are going to be pissed that people are calling them out instead of kneeling to them. They're probably going to do more crap to get them to submit.

Keep on fighting, Malala. And keep on fighting, citizens of Pakistan.


Unfortunately, the article I read yesterday talked about the majority of the Pakistani people supporting the idea "dat duh wimminz needin' to stay un-edjumacated." It's just that the Taliban's methods were a bit harsh in their opinion.

I guess the Taliban should have stuck to stoning those uppity biatches...

People always try to make these equivalents. What they never do is this.

US Military might vs. NAME YOUR BAD GUY HERE

So the taliban shot and killed a girl. Our military "accidentally" kills girls just like that everyday in their countries. You might not equate it to "Deny girl right to education" but being dead kind of does that regardless of the intent.

All you folks want to say those folks over there are crazy, they believe in X, Y and Z and they are looney tunes

Well ours might not be as blatantly crazy, but American Exceptionalism is just as much a fundamental belief in this country. It allows our leaders and their followers to look the other way when we do terrible terrible things. The idea that America has the right to wage war on anyone at anytime for any reason is so accepted in this country that it is never discussed.

We run around enforcing our beliefs, our financial systems and culture at the end of a gun barrel. But you are right Americans by sheer will of where they were born are fundamentally righteous and good. It is just everyone in the world who has murderous intent and ill will towards others.

Activist? Really? Can a 14 year old even be an activist? She's a teen who thought and said girls out to be allowed an education. That makes her an activist?


To the Taliban, that is the very definition of a radical activist. Education is the Taliban's worse enemy. Of couse they want to kill her.

Guy came into a thread about muslim nutbags, and not responding to anyone else went off abotu christians being worse.

LOTN: Who the fark decided to label these asshats as "fundamentalists" in the first place?


The name largely comes from christianity where "fundamentalism" was a return to a mroe biblical based faith. So technically every major school of Islamic thought is fundamentalist.


LOTN: Why give them a term that makes it seem they're being in some manner closer to the source of their religions. Half these nitwits know less about the history of their advocated deities than I do, and I'm a farking atheist.


I didn't "give" them that term, it was the one coined when they went back to the bible. Though I do appreciate the difference between looking at the teaching of JC vs the bible as being the "source".

Ignoring the inappropriate ad hominem...you obviously don't live in the Bible Belt. The only thing different between Evangelical Christian fundies and the Taliban, is that they don't have major control over the local, state, and federal governments...yet.

Some of the things I've heard around here in Southern Indiana from Evanglical Christians are downright farking scary, and every year there's more and more of them saying it louder and louder.

- They want to kill teh gheys

- They want to murder people who are pro-choice (because we all
- They believe women with educations and jobs outside the home are an abomination (heard from a middle-aged woman at a beauty shop) (Yes, she was asked to leave the premises with shampoo still in her hair)

- They believe alcohol should be prohibited

- They believe people who work on Sundays should be killed

- They don't want the different races to intermarry/breed


So tell me again how they're different in their views?

The only reason our fundies aren't as murderous is because they don't have the government support that the Muslim ones do. If the average Freeper could get away with a casual lynching or bombing a few abortion clinics without ending up in prison, you bet your ass they would.

Hate is hate, and if your religion gives you an excuse to inflict that hate on others AND you don't have to suffer consequences for it...

This is true, the fundie morons here who resort to violence usually get caught and either martyr themselves or end up in jail. Over there half the corrupt governments support them and let them hide in plain sight. I have great faith that the Christian fundies here would resort to more violence if they could get away with it.


Nice. This the reason that we can't have a conversation in this country. The blind have been lead to believe that anyone who doesn't think like them are out to destroy them. Way to play right into the hands of the parties who want to control you.

2012-10-16 03:11:59 PM  

ModernPrimitive01: this kind of thing is why I don't understand why people support the crazed killing in the name of religion crowd. If you're a Pakistani, Afghani, or Libyan, why isn't there a general consensus to stop supporting these people? We have our share of religious crazies here too, but for the most part, they're relegated to silly protests. How do they get that much power in their communities? (I know they have weapons, but still, without a large amount of support I can't see them lasting very long)


You're right that the local people ultimately have to stand up to this. But it takes extreme bravery to do so -- basically these are like cartels in otherwise pretty much un-policed regions.

There are lots of cases in history where a minority with brutality can subjugate a larger population.

But there are some movements starting to grow -- anti-Taliban protests in Pakistan: http://www.cnn.com/2012/10/16/world/asia/pakistan-activist-reaction/in dex.html?hpt=hp_c1

NOBODY is out to hand wave away the crimes of these particular islamic fundamentalists. The talk about christians and westerners who are crazy terrorists didn't begin until this troll wanted to make a point that only islamic fundamentalists were a problem. Most of us disagree with that point. Many people pointed out that fundamentalists (or extremists) of all stripes are a danger to civilized society. Nobody came in here from the start trying to character assassinate christians. Get down off your crosses and try not to be stupid for one thread if possible.


Not true. By blaming "fundamentalists", the poster was lumping all religions in with the one responsible for this act. That was where the talk about Christians started. I'm not going all the way back up the thread, but wasn't that the Boobies?

PROTIP: When trying to bash fundie violent Christians, use people that actually are fundie violent Christians. Such as Eric Rudolph. McVeigh was an anti-government atheist, Koresh, while evil, wasn't violent (killed his own cult and was batshiat insane, but didn't kill others) and the unabomber was a non-religious (agnostic or apatheist) shut in hermit.

cmb53208: shiat, our own Christian fundies are coming close to the Taliban, more close day by day


Congrats, you win the stupidest comment of the thread award. First off, this thread is about the Taliban. Second, until the leaders of the fundies (not isolated nutjobs, there are those in everygroup) start talking about killing off gays, Democrats and whatnot, then it is a really stupid comparison.

Leeds: liam76: Man On Pink Corner: liam76: So if I find an athiest in this thread talking about killing extremists does that mean I can make the argument that athiests are becoming more close tot he taliban day by day?

No, because unlike Christians, one atheist can't speak for the rest. There is no Nicene Creed of atheism.

Yeah there is, it is "I don't believe in religion".

You can't use the nutball actiosn of one from a group to paint the rest.

What if what that person did was in the name of the group?


I could go to Ruby Tuesdays and shiat in the salad bar screaming I am doing it in the name of Jesus Christ, but that doesn't mean you can paint christians based on that.

If the actiosn were done by someoen or a group they elect, then yes go right ahead. If the faith ro sect has a head that endorses actions, then yes blame them (looking at you catholics).

But you still cant take the words of a self avowed leader and try and paint people by that.

puppetmaster745: Magnanimous_J: The only reason our fundies aren't as murderous is because they don't have the government support that the Muslim ones do. If the average Freeper could get away with a casual lynching or bombing a few abortion clinics without ending up in prison, you bet your ass they would.

Pure speculation deduction.

Poowaddins: G-Rot: shiat, our own Christian fundies are coming close to the Taliban, more close day by day

Stupidest farking thing I've read all week...congratulations dumbass.

Ignoring the inappropriate ad hominem...you obviously don't live in the Bible Belt. The only thing different between Evangelical Christian fundies and the Taliban, is that they don't have major control over the local, state, and federal governments...yet.

Some of the things I've heard around here in Southern Indiana from Evanglical Christians are downright farking scary, and every year there's more and more of them saying it louder and louder.

- They want to kill teh gheys

- They want to murder people who are pro-choice (because we all
- They believe women with educations and jobs outside the home are an abomination (heard from a middle-aged woman at a beauty shop) (Yes, she was asked to leave the premises with shampoo still in her hair)

- They believe alcohol should be prohibited

- They believe people who work on Sundays should be killed

- They don't want the different races to intermarry/breed


So tell me again how they're different in their views?

One isolated nutjob does not make a group. That is like saying Pol Pot and his killing of non-atheists speaks for all atheists.

Two likeliest suspects for the "relatives" at the hospital: Paparazzi (95 percent chance). Five percent chance it was these guys.
