Chariset: It's a just world!Bad happens to the bad; good happens to the good. If something horrific happened to you, you must have deserved it.After all the alternative is to think that bad things can happen to people who have nothing to do with the incident and are doing nothing wrong, like me, and we can't have that.
please: Reading his comments, he basically said "we've become complacent again". Is that really blaming the victims?
SkinnyHead: There's nothing controversial about warning people against complacency when it comes to terrorism. Unless you happen to be a big fan of complacency.
jenny next: SkinnyHead: There's nothing controversial about warning people against complacency when it comes to terrorism. Unless you happen to be a big fan of complacency.Complacency, at times, can be a good thing. Complacency is better than lashing out at random people who had nothing to do with the unjust act just to do something about it./I'm not criticizing any specific policy. I'm just saying that, unless there's a time constraint that doesn't allow for it, it's better to get all your information before acting.
Trayal: Total deaths from terrorism in US history: ~5,000.Average deaths per year from auto accidents in the last ten years: ~39,000.
SkinnyHead: coeyagi: SkinnyHead: There's nothing controversial about warning people against complacency when it comes to terrorism. Unless you happen to be a big fan of complacency.Except that is a completely transparent attempt at ginning up fear so that you will vote GOP and Big Government [Depart of Defense] and line the pockets further of defense contractors, but I guess in the post WWII era that isn't controversial, that is just the same happy bullsh*t we live with every day, much like oxygen poaching Fark posters who force us to respond to their retardation.The actual reason why libs are so offended by talk about complacency is that they see it as an attack on their complacent president.
Propain_az: TheBigJerk: Emposter: Dammit guys, this shiat makes you look just as dishonest as the idiot right wingers. It's blatantly obvious that he isn't blaming the victims, he's fear mongering. He isn't aiming at Bostonians, he's saying to all of us "See? You should be afraid. Give me and my fellow chickenhawk war-profiteer friends more power, we'll protect you."/Always pisses me off that people make shiat up when there's a perfectly good reason to despise a person already availableHe can't be doing both? His obvious subtext is, "this is your fault for voting democrat." He's saying the complacency of us commoners is why the bombing succeeded. OUR complacency, OUR suffering.So, take our weapons? So we can't defend ourselves? Granted, armed citizens could not have stopped the bombing of Boston, but I am talking about the bigger picture. The long view.
FlashHarry: can you imagine the apoplexy from the right if obama had said something like that?
carpbrain: Bisu: 1) He doesn't appear to be blaming anyone, just mentioning something (complacency) that he observed but didn't necessarily cause anything.2) He doesn't even MENTION the victims.3) Submitter is a troll.It must be sorry to be you.
thamike: skullkrusher: Wouldn't Independence Day make more sense from a symbolic perspective? Hitting a government building rather than a marathon route?The marathon happens on Patriots Day which commemorates the Battles of Lexington and Concord, which kicked off the American Revolution with the "shot heard 'round the world." The whole thing is maximum population density, especially at the finish line, and especially after the race has already been won by the athletes and the straggling townsfolk are all bunched together in the back of the line, basically walking. Also, there is maximum media exposure.What part of that whole scenario doesn't make sense?

Stone Meadow: Diogenes: And if it it turns out this was perpetrated by 'one of our own' will he stand by those words?Sounds to me like he's strongly implying a particular responsible party.That's what I was LOLing about. When the cops finally catch the little shiatstain, he'll biatch about abortion rights, or Jeebus or some other right-wingnut talking point.
SkinnyHead: Well, like Sen. McConnell said, there was a sense of complacency that prevailed prior to September 11th. He's saying that we shouldn't go back to that.
Cletus C.: What he said was harmless and probably true. We don't think about terrorism like we used to.
rufus-t-firefly: SkinnyHead: There's nothing controversial about warning people against complacency when it comes to terrorism. Unless you happen to be a big fan of complacency.We get complacent about alt trolls, and then they pop up again.
Asked if the cuts would make the country more susceptible to acts of terrorism, Napolitano said: "It's always a threat. We do what we can to minimize the risk, but the sequester makes it awfully, awfully tough."
vernonFL: You know who else was complacent in the face of terrorism?lh6.googleusercontent.com
Somacandra: ASSHOLE: On 9/11 we forever disabused of the notion that attacks, like the one that rocked Boston yesterday, only happen on the field of battle or in distant countries.[i.imgur.com image 413x333] [i.imgur.com image 408x599]fark YOU MITCH MCCONNELL.SERIOUSLY.fark YOU AND ALL YOU STAND FORYOU INCREDIBLE ASSHOLE/OKIE
simplicimus: Would someone throw a bucket of water on this guy so we can watch him melt?
usernameguy: The right wing seems to be going out of their way to be as awful as possible in the past 24 hours
