@13: Nice sneaky attempt to move the goalposts, I was talking about Europe and the Middle East, not America. Also, that data is 12 years old, counts just about every shooting as "terrorism," and does not even touch on demographics. Muslims only make up about 1% of the population, you know. So even with the numbers that article is using, Muslims are still grossly overrepresented by a factor of 6 when it comes to terrorism in the US.

Also, I am just going to doubt the assertion that Latinos commit 42% of terrorism in the US. That one really doesn't pass the smell test to me, but whatever. Gotta love that 24% from left wing groups too, huh? You sure you want to use this graph?

I actually read links people suggest, so no need to try that on me next time. Also, don't make condescending remarks suggesting people can't read if your own links are irrelevant to the discussion. Makes you look really dumb.

Of course one must still wonder why you felt the need to go back 30 years for an example when you could have just picked one of the many terrorist attacks done in the US in the last week or so. Why didn't you just choose one of those? Would have made your point better, right?

Also, please remind me about all those terrorist attacks that happened in the US in the last week or so. I seem to have forgotten all about them.

@8: But doesn't it strike you as meaningful that you have to go back 30 or more years for a shaky comparison to something that is happening in Europe just about every week now, and daily in the Middle East?

I know your brain recognizes that little bit of disconnect. It has to, even if you remain willfully blind to it on a conscious level.

@16: Does that mean we should not be concerned with the race of a white cop who shoots someone of another race if white people were the paramedics or doctors who helped him?

I mean, strange that people would obsess over the race of the shooter when people of that race also helped the victim, and most people of that race condemn the violence, right?

@8: If it has nothing to do with skin color or religion, why did you specifically identify one skin color, and one religion? Especially when you follow that with condemning the labeling of whole groups by actions of a few.

Genuinely curious. I mean, I imagine it was for internet points, but still curious.

Here we go again.

If you want a reason for the rise of nationalism in the US and especially Europe, it is happening right before you. People are tired of seeing their countrymen run over, blown up, and stabbed and are going to look for answers that the globalists do not have, or care about.

If you put up a blank wall, a percentage of people will draw dicks on it. Some will make art, and most will do nothing of note.

But that isn't the wall's fault.

@12: The Stranger has always had a comically enormous blind spot in regards to their own behavior.
11:05 AM yesterday Theodore Gorath commented on Sometimes I Think Donald Trump Is In a FemDom Relationship.
Well, she was wearing a white dress, and I would imagine that orange tanner is a bear to get out.

On a more serious note, if this little gesture is a sign of a femdom relationship, then almost 100% of married straight guys are apparently in femdom relationships.

That's the "I told you I did not want to come to this event" swat.

People have to stop expecting that Mudede knows literally anything about the crap he pontificates on. He hypocritically lives in a single family home where he can control the climate in various ways, so that means no one else needs AC either. This is the way he thinks. He doesn't know anything about construction, building codes, needs for ventilation, air pressure, or anything like that.

So you get a childish "no one needs things I don't need" holier than thou scolding.

@9: No one really is, but some people try to overcome their bias and get to truth, and some people revel in it as their truth.
