Good job appeasing.

http://www.nationalreview.com/articl...brendan-oneill
"The British press has never seemed as out of touch as it is today. All our broadsheet papers are packed with pleas to the people of France, and other European populations, not to turn into Muslim-killing nutjobs in response to the Charlie Hebdo massacre. The Guardian frets over “Islamophobes seizing this atrocity to advance their hatred.” The Financial Times is in a spin about “Islamophobic extremists” using the massacre to “[challenge] the tolerance on which Europe has built its peace.” One British hack says we should all “fear the coming Islamophobic backlash.” And what actually happened in France as these dead-tree pieces about a possible Islamophobic backlash made their appearance? Jews were assaulted. And killed. “Don’t attack Muslims,” lectures the press as Jews are attacked.

Across Europe, among the right-thinking sections of society, among the political classes, the response to the massacre of the cartoonists and satirists has been the same: to panic about how Them, the native masses, especially the more right-wing sections of the French population, might respond to it. The blood on the floor of the Charlie Hebdo offices was still wet when brow-furrowed observers started saying: “Oh no, the Muslims! Will they be attacked?” It’s the same after every terrorist attack: from 9/11 to 7/7 in London to last year’s Sydney siege to Paris today: Liberals’ instant, almost Pavlovian response to Islamist terror attacks in the West is to worry about a violent uprising of the ill-educated against Muslims. The uprising never comes, but that doesn’t halt their fantasy fears. What’s it all about?

"We have a lot of new friends, like the pope, Queen Elizabeth and (Russian President Vladimir) Putin. It really makes me laugh," Bernard Holtrop, whose pen name is Willem, told the Dutch centre-left daily Volkskrant.

"Marine Le Pen is delighted when the Islamists start shooting all over the place," said Willem, 73, a longtime Paris resident who also draws for the French leftist daily Liberation.

He added: "We vomit on all these people who suddenly say they are our friends."

The religion of peace continues with its greatest hits. Yea islam! Can you imagine the TRUE outrage if this were a christian group. The democrat media would be falling all over themselves.

"Berlin (AFP) - A German tabloid that reprinted cartoons from the French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo lampooning the Prophet Mohammed was targeted in firebombing Sunday, police said."

Am I allowed to be of a mind that more (as in frequency) violent acts that are deemed forms of terrorism within the U.S. are perpetrated by right-wing Christian fundamentalists, yet more (again referring to frequency) violent acts deemed forms of terrorism world-wide are perpetrated by right-wing Muslim fundamentalists?

Can I choose to believe that if Christian terrorists don't count as "real" Christians, then Muslim terrorists don't count as "real" Muslims?

Am I a dick for thinking that both sides give themselves a free pass by not calling their fundamentalist factions to task, and turning a blind eye to what is done in the name of their own religion, instead focusing on the actions of the other?

Is it unpatriotic of me to think that both sides are fucking hypocrites who use outdated tribal teachings to justify horrible behavior and hate-fueled aggression upon the rest of the world?

Or is that not black and white enough, and I need to chose one side of douchebag over the other?

Okay...I finally looked at this article. From CNN so why would I expect less.

"
In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda's ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the United States for political reasons since 9/11. (The total includes the latest shootings in Kansas, which are being classified as a hate crime).
By contrast, terrorists motivated by al Qaeda's ideology have killed 21 people in the United States since 9/11."


A very clever numbers game. First you leave out 3K on 9/11. They you count acts up since there (13 years) and come up with



Right-wing-"terrorists" - 34
Islamic "terrorists" - 21..


The numbers are so miniscule as to be ridiculous. 34 of ANYTHING in 13 years in a country of 300million is a pimple on the butt.



I'm curious however if they include the ft. hood shootings? "fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others."
