AdolfOliverPanties: In the week following the terror attack on the Boston Marathon, lefties and their media clones have been desperate to point out the attack had nothing to do with those two scary words.

Two scary words?  Boston and Marathon?  I know both terrify me.  Specifically the traffic in Boston, and the idea of having to run for 26 miles.

atomicmask: Mrtraveler01: atomicmask: Now, can you stop trying to shift attention away from the culture at hand onto another one because Islam is so god damn undefendable you have to shift blame?

No. You keep harping about the violent history of Muslims while omitting the violent history of Christians.

And I don't give a shiat whether or not you're a non-belliever. That doesn't give you the right to be an asshole to people who do worship a God.

You have your own narrow-minded view of the world and that's fine. Just don't act so shocked when people like me disagree with it.


Are you jumping up and down on the furniture yet? That would really help your argument. You should jump up and down on the furniture. And throw something. Definitely throw something.

atomicmask: Mrtraveler01: atomicmask: fark you and apologetics like you, making excuses for shiat heels like this who kill in the name of islam.

I hate people who kill in the name of everything and not just those who kill in the name of Islam like you seem to do.

I have issue with Islam because i have studied it, have knowledge of it, and have seen its effect on the world. It is a plague, a horrible primitive theocratic movement that drags every single culture it infects back 600 years. It makes property of women, it destroys historical sites of whatever culture it infects, it destroys the personal rights of all people under its totalitarian cloak, and it abuses and destroys animals it finds unclean. It is a god damn mental illness of the highest order. ANYONE, anyone who values any sort of personal liberty, human rights, animals rights, or religious freedom should look good and hard at what islam does to whatever country it gets a foot hold in, and instantly begin fighting against it and doing your best to keep it out of whatever place you hold dear.

You know nothing of psychiatry; I have. I've studied it.

Somacandra: mark12A: No, Muslim Extremism is the big problem. Christian extremism is the small problem.

[ image 720x540]

I'm sure the 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys genocidally murdered by Serbian Orthodox Christians in the 1995 Srebrenica Massacre will appreciate that. As will the over 50,000 Bosnian women systematically raped by Serbian Orthodox Christians during the Bosnian War as a form of ethnic cleansing. In the meantime, you really should keep up with world events a little more. Then you won't look as stupid.

Hey nice bait. Don't let the fact that Eastern Orthodox Christianity wouldn't even be recognizable as Christianity to most Americans, let that False Equivalency express roll! Let me guess, next you'll bring up the Inquisition, right?

rkiller1: somedude210: rkiller1: somedude210: what ties to radical islam are there, exactly?

Ummm, perhaps the bombers were of the Islamic faith and acted radically?

One does not mean the other. Just because I'm buddhist and I do something radical, like light people on fire because I have a hankering for BBQ, doesn't make it due to radical Buddhism

Same applies here. Islam was a personal justification, maybe, but they didn't go out killing people because of "Jihad" or 72 virgins. The older brother got pissed that he was isolated in his adoptive country and snubbed for a chance at an olympic boxing match. This is no different than Columbine, but with less "flag wavin' americans" and guns.

/in other words, you're an idiot

You sound angry (and ignored).  Do try to have a good day.

Holy crap. You're the whinest little princess I've seen in a long time.

kidgenius: Brick-House: Thankfully, there are other ways to get the word out.  But of course, suubby is missing the point.  This like the Abortion Murder Doctor Trail is not being acurrately covered by the main stream media because it doesn't mesh with the left's view of the world.

The main stream media has an "Ignore it, and it will go away" mentatiality when it comes to issues like this. And the list is long on stories that do not recieve adequate coverage.

There's a trail? Where does it start? Where does it stop? Can you show it to me on a map? Do you need boots to hike on this trail? Sounds like a fun trail. But what is an "abortion murder"? And the he murdering abortions?

An abortion murder is where you beat someone to death with an aborted fetus.

If only the right-wing had a cable news network that sympathized with their cause and could help get these stories out there.

Well to be fair, that was Faux News "opinion" rather than "news."  It's where they just come right out and say what they imply 24/7 during the "news."

SlothB77: this is a marketing/ promotion technique called differentiation.  They are trying to attract viewers away from CNN by showing how their coverage is different and superior to their competitor.  That's all it is.

One would think that would be easy enough to do without being dicks.

Famed newsman Tom Brokaw took up the blame America crusade on Sunday's NBC "Meet the Press," discussing "motivation" like he was in an entry-level acting class.

That's because the tie to radical Islam is tenuous at best, but the butthurt these guys seem to have felt because they didn't get things handed to them is palpable. They are closer to teabaggers than Al Qaeda.
