Muslim terrorists yell "Allah is Great". Muslims terrorize in the name of Allah. Just wondering. I know it's very important to make sure there are Christian terrorists so Christianity is equal to Islam in terrorism.

Don't care. He forfeited his previous accomplishments and claimed the asshole award.
With that said... What gave birth to such an asshole is easily seen in the mirror for what US society has now become.

I am to blame as much you are.

Dead is dead. That is the only equivalency that matters to a reasonable person. Leave it to you to inject your bigotry even when these deaths were perpetrated by a good ole American white boy.

In principle, I agree with you. We're all part of the collective mind, and we input into it, and now it's spitting out dead bodies.

Washington, our finest president, warned us, and no one paid any attention then just like no one is paying attention now. We need to pay attention.
I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the State, with particular reference to the founding of them on geographical discriminations. Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally.

This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.

The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.

Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight), the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.

It serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.

There is an opinion that parties in free countries are useful checks upon the administration of the government and serve to keep alive the spirit of liberty. This within certain limits is probably true; and in governments of a monarchical cast, patriotism may look with indulgence, if not with favor, upon the spirit of party. But in those of the popular character, in governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged. From their natural tendency, it is certain there will always be enough of that spirit for every salutary purpose. And there being constant danger of excess, the effort ought to be by force of public opinion, to mitigate and assuage it. A fire not to be quenched, it demands a uniform vigilance to prevent its bursting into a flame, lest, instead of warming, it should consume.
Thanks from guy39, Panther and Hollywood

The deaths were not perpetrated by a good ol' American white boy. They were perpetrated by a murderous whacko.

We should, at least, try to keep politics out of this.
Thanks from Panther, Sabcat, Hollywood and 2 others
