<quoted text>It was a very stupid title for the article, and if I needed another example of a liberal script you couldn't do much better than than over analyzing something very simple so you can blab on about 'white male privilege'.
I didn't write it. I'm not responsible for it. I don't write for Salon. There's no 'mirror' here.
Stripped of the provocative title and the unnecessary reference to race and privilege, however, I don't disagree with the premise of the article.
Per The Blaze: Writer David Sirota’s main premise, it seems, is captured just under the article’s headline, where he writes that a double standard exists when dealing with terrorism and other related crimes. Whites, he believes,“are dealt with as lone wolves,” while Islamists are reviled as “existential threats” in the midst of murderous crimes.
If you change "whites" to "political terrorists linked to the right", I agree with the guy.
No you didn't write it but thanks for being honest here. My thinking is who cares? Whoever did this, person or people should be put to death. Or spend the rest of what life they have in Supermax. I don't give a damn what they think or belive, left, right or middle. Coward is what they are and its a test of my faith because while I know the word says to forgive if it was my family member that had legs blown off... just say its quite the test of faith here.

Liberal Writer Issues Warning Over Boston Terrorist’s Ethnicity:‘Let’s Hope the Boston Marathon Bomber is a White American’
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/04/17/li...
Chris, I hope this will speak to you the way it did to me. I deleted the swear words, but the rest remain.

"Boston.**ing horrible.

I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, "Well, I've had it with humanity."

But I was wrong. I don't know what's going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.

But here's what I DO know. If it's one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out.(Thanks, Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski, for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we're lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they're pointed towards darkness.

But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We'd have eaten ourselves alive long ago.

So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, "The good outnumber you, and we always will."

That's a letter from Patton Oswalt, a comedian whose political leanings don't matter at the moment any more than ours do, but whose heart (at least as far as I'm concerned) in the right place.

We are NOT dying as a nation. And we mustn't let the bad stuff that happens, make us think we are.

Peace.

A fertilizer plant in Waco, Texas, exploded yesterday, killing upwards of 60 people. It didn't get the level of press coverage dedicated to the Boston bombing, so some might not know about it.

But on the web, there are plenty of folks who are sure this is also an act of terror, before the facts are in.

Regardless, those folks who lost family members and friends in that explosion are in my thoughts.

May they find peace, too.

<quoted text>Well it's probably not the federal gov't that says you have to expel a kid for eating his poptart into the shape of a gun, seems it would be okay for the school to expel a kid that beats the crap out of his classmate. I've known schools to suspend kids for being caught smoking "off campus" seems to me they could suspend kids for harassing a teen girl on facebook. This is a problem and it might even be "the" problem. I see no reason not to talk about it in the face of a scramble to make new laws that prevent another Newtowne shooting. Again I say nothing excuses shooting up innocent people or even guilty people. But in the face of suicides and murders, someone needs to get a clue. To me gun control is the strawman.
The treasured 'gun out of a poptart' icon is undoubtedly a local school decision, not an action required directly by any federal or state law.

Nobody is arguing that schools shouldn't suspend/expel kids who "beats the crap out of a classmate", either.

There is no 'one answer' to mass shootings, suicides, and murder, or gun violence in general. The kinds of things that need to be done about bullying are all at the local level; even state laws are of questionable value.

I certainly didn't look at the bill before the Senate as THE answer to Newtown, but as one of a number of things that should be done.

Law enforcement has to care, so they know what they can do better and where they may need to keep a sharper eye out.

I was thinking a little more about the article The Blaze talked about, and it seems to me the author doesn't know much about the kind of terrorists he labeled 'white Americans'. They're referred to as 'lone wolves' because that's what they are and how they act, for tactical or strategic reasons.

Most of this is true and good but I fear what has made this nation is dying friend. I have two friends that without a doubt have influenced me. One is from Ireland the other Venezuela. They both perhaps see some things in this nation that those of us born here may not and they both see us changing for the worst. It does go far beyond left/right but what these two people see is a move that empowers a gov and hurts a free people. Yesterday on Cnn, a news souce many trust, I heard John King say they had info shared from a police souce concerning events in Boston but wouldn't repeat it as to not offend some group. Where are we going as a nation when the very people that should be watchdogs are nothing more than puppets. Imo its not too far off to call what we have nothing more than state run crap. And if it comes to that we have died as a nation and many good people died for what?

What made this nation, was a great many people who saw opportunity wherever they looked, who were joyous at the opportunity to strive passionately and be rewarded greatly, and who were unafraid to reach out and take the opportunities when they presented themselves. We still have those people, Chris. All of us have the capacity to BE those people, and hundreds of thousands of us are expressing that capacity. Yes, we have our problems, our personal blinders, our each and several fears - but America is STUFFED with people who focus on the good, love our country fiercely, and do their best every single day. Our innovators are still tinkering, our scientists are still researching, our students are learning new things all the time. There's a ton of good stuff going on, Chris.

Maybe we should focus more on that.

King was told by a law enforcement source that the authorities were looking for a dark skinned male.

After he and other sources relayed the information to the public, other law enforcement sources denied it (echoes of CNN & Fox reporting that arrests were made, although Fox seemed to be backing off that first), and some blacks claimed King was irresponsible for relaying what his source said. You might have seen a Blaze article quoting Sharpton calling it shameful.

That might explain why he said what you heard about 'avoid offending' a group.

But he didn't rely that only Willie. This is just the latest example of a "hard news source" that is spewing political opinions. My problem isn't what happens during a live event, it often does and many times they get it wrong. My problem was the way he said he was going to hold some things back as to not offend. Really? I saw a kid without legs, did that offend anyone? Its like this is a bad joke when peole care more about the race hustler Sharpton says than what is really going on.

<quoted text>When in doubt, rant about liberals...
When you have no rebuttal but have a compulsion to negatively comment, you have a habit of grabbing a mildly offensive word like "rant," change it's meaning, throw it at the poster and hope it sticks.

Here, add "RANT" and it's revised liberal definition to these:

*discrimination: a word that has lost meaning in the progressive era from over use by the MSM and this administration. To liberals discrimination means not giving equal stuff to members of minorities, who should have whatever they want, and everyone else must pay for those wants.


*diversity: a blend of several unique items coexisting, such as a diversified stock portfolio. Liberals, however, define this word to describe racial, religious, cultural, and other diversity promoted within a single society which they of course define.

*equality: an idea which states that each member of a given group has equal value or equal authority. To liberals it means forced equal outcomes regardless of skill, experience, or effort, as in racial quotas.

* progressive: A "progressive" focuses on using government power to make institutions play by a set of rules. And liberals get to define "the rules."

*prejudice: Prejudice means literally to pre-judge. But liberals cannot stop there – they add racial or class or sex or … so as to fit their agenda and change the meaning of the word on a whim.

* racist: The MSM and current administration have used this word so much that the word has lost relevance in any honest debate. To liberals it means any person or organization that disagrees with the policies of the current administration.

* rainbow: a rainbow is literally a circular color spectrum appearing in the sky due to the result of refraction and multiple reflections of sunlight in droplets of water. Liberals have redefined the word as a symbol of homosexuality. It has also been redefined and used by left-wing political pressure groups to refer to their agenda of multiculturalism. The word has also been mis-used by liberals as a symbol of diversity. Pick the one you like!

* tyranny: tyranny literally means oppressive power exerted by government. This word is not present in the progressive liberal vocabulary.

* union dues: to liberals, union dues means voluntary contributions from individuals who are happy to belong to a union and agree with all actions the union takes. In actuality, it is money coerced from union members as a condition of employment.
=======
Liberals are presently working on the correct, new and improved definition of "marriage." The word itself has been around for about 1300 - 1400 years and the ceremony of marriage between a man and a woman has been practiced for even longer but liberals want to redefine that one too. Knock yourselves out.

But do me a favor, Willie. Save your "liberal vocabulary hijacking" for someone who doesn't know the game you play in order to squelch comments you find too difficult to rebut.

I'm not playing any game here, Lyndi; I'm just a guy who likes to talk about politics and current events on a message board.

Thing is, I don't consider scripted attacks on liberalism or conservatism to be talking about politics or current events. It's just talking.

For me to even ATTEMPT to rebut something it would have to be worth my while, and I've been on the record for 3-4 years before you joined the thread as saying the liberal-liberal-liberal stuff isn't worth it.

It is worthy of a little ridicule, however, or maybe pointing out the dodges some people use to talk a lot without saying anything.

You don't like it? Don't read it, or puff yourself up by claiming I can't rebut you, or crank out buzzword-laden scripted schtick like the above, or ... well, whatever you want to do.

Yes well liberalism or conservatism IS about politics, including
attacks, when perceived by <the poster> to be merited.

Of course the poster may be ignored (or poked at), as is often the case. The problem then becomes like the boy who cried WOLF! When so many complaints emerge over liberalism or this administration, the fallback measure is to just pass it off as another "scripted attack".

I don't know how to state my opinion any better than I've been doing for years, bob.

There is a difference between referring to liberalism/conservatism in the normal course of discussing politics, and talking about liberals/conservatives in cheap stereotypes on the other. That's true whether you spend all your time outright talking about 'the other guys', or work just a little harder and use politics and current events as props to give a bit of polish to talking about 'the other guys'.

I get all that Wilson.

But often in the course of discussing politics, where liberals or liberalism happens to be the focus, that ideology MAY be portrayed in a bad light for one reason or another, depending on the poster.

As a committed liberal, no matter if the poster has a legitimate beef, you take it upon yourself to downplay the seriousness of the issue, often by comparing actions by the previous admin., whether similar or not.

I'm now Indy, leaning right, but I will NOT blindly defend the right, especially the far right, when they have stepped over the line. As I've said b4, BOTH sides are guilty of certain strategies, oppositional chess, back room deals, and other shenanigans on The Hill. But I strongly object to people sugar- coating issues where "someone" should be held accountable, RE:
the Benghazi crisis, or Fast & Furious.

And B4 you drag GW Bush onto the carpet again, let's remember there's a big difference between holding a POTUS or other leader accountable while in office, and trying to accomplish that long after the fact, when nearly 5 years have elapsed.

However, I'd still agree that <if> it were determined that Bush (Sr OR Jr or anyone else) have been convicted of a serious crime(s), they are REQUIRED to be held accountable and brought to justice (IMO).
