what white guy hates sikhs?
Please register to disable this ad.
he had a brain freeze.
The local Sikhs have a billboard on the interstate that basically says "We're not Muslims, for Christ's sake!"
Nothing additional from local news sources, other than the fact that they pronounce it as "sick" instead of "seek".
But Silver can pick up the pieces of his shattered skull and brain after reading that both the police and news consider this possible "terrorism" by a white American against darker-hued people.
Is this the first USA domestic incident against brown people to be classified as terrorism?
Considering the KKK is classified as a terrorist organization, I think not.
Cool, was just curious as I couldn't think of any.
Sad. Sadsadsad...beginning to understand how Lao Tsu felt when he left the city gates.
Wesboro Baptist church already with some asshole comments about it. Twitter I think
Yeah, those libertine Sikhs must really irk Westboro...
"Page [demoted & less-than-honorably discharged soldier] had tattoos that suggested he had ties to white supremacists."
used a 9mm handgun to boot. i bet it was "legally" possessed
let teh awesome begin
Dude was supposedly in a 'white power' band called End Apathy:
I used to get calls from the local prison(s) during my punk rawk radio days asking for various WP bands such as Skrewdriver and White Lightning...and to that I'd say:
Notice how the trained former military guy with a semi auto pistol killed far fewer people than a gun noob with an AR.
^^^^I'd make a snarky comment that he could have killed just as many people with a knife, but let's face it, he's in Wisconsin. Mobility probably wasn't his strong point....
Too much cheese n beer?
Ftfy. That's almost always a statement as opposed to a question around here...
maybe he had a issue w/ plagiarism or copyright infringement?
The Indus Valley civilization created it before Christianity existed.
Just ran across this related item:
CNN had on several Sikh priests and they all pronounced it "sick" and "sickism..." though all the Sikh kids i grew up with pronounced it "seek"
Teh Atheists did it!
Oh Pat, how are you not in a home yet?
Pat's about as sharp as the shooter. At the very least you'd have to be agnostic to hate God...
i would think if you had 2 identical people who were exact in every relevant way except for theism, that he who does not answer to a higher power would be expected to perform this hideous act more easily, particularly when targeting the unwashed masses
except, of course, if "god told him to do it".
comme ci comme ca
Get back to me when we're lobbing drone fired Hellfires into white supremacist BBQs...
I did find this interesting:
“Our hearts are with the victims, their families and the entire Oak Creek Sikh community,” Mr. Romney said. “We join Americans everywhere in mourning those who lost their lives and in prayer for healing in the difficult days ahead.”
I bet Romney retroactively baptized the victims...
Since religious morality is arbitrary grand delusion which changes with each civilization, its not likely. As pointed out some of those morals are negative compared with morals based in reality. Morality does not require the delusional thinking of religion.
Deluded people (for whatever the reason) are compromised by definition. If you aren't crazy to whatever degree for individual or social reasons, there would be no impetus for the act.
Watch this series on youtube:
That's preposterous. You can make the exact same argument by substituting "higher power" with "tooth fairy" or "Santa". You don't still believe in the tooth fairy do you?
you could also say: "evolves"
and for that matter, any delusional thinking. let's not pick on merely one fsm-based emotional manipulation of the unwashed masses. history is replete with abuses from any selection of pulpit.
as det david mills asked john doe, "When a person is insane - as you clearly are - do you know that you're insane? Maybe you're just sitting around, reading Guns and Ammo, masturbating in your own feces, do you just stop and go, 'Wow! It is amazing how ****ing crazy I really am!'? Yeah. Do you guys do that? "
point is, you don't have to be crazy. you don't have to be [ir]religious. motivation comes from many founts
i've watched those previously, quite possibly due to you; always good for a refresher. in kind, maybe you could chase down some ravi zacharias & michael ramsden in your spare time. i lean more towards michael; ravi tends to garner a 700 club crowd at times, but both are willing to engage in spirited debate with dawkins
only if either were as influential as any major religion
Either way, it's belief in something that doesn't actually exist.
Wrong. As social animals antisocial behavior for whatever combination of biological, environmental, or developmental reason(s) is abnormal. You have to be defective.
always the same macabre sh*t: comforting words from the kenyan muslim in charge, everyone is saddened, condemns the shooting and waits a week or two for the next killing spree.
why are you as american citizens not fed up with this? why do you neglect, that there is something terribly wrong in connection with guns and violence in your country? how can you take so many dead people as collateral damage to the holy second amendment? why are you not able to change something about it? why do you NOT want something to change? this is really beyond me....
Because gun nuts are scared of the dark (skinned masses). And knife attacks.
I think the "mistook Sikhs for Muslims" line is a bit of wishful thinking to frame it in terms of the global narrative over the past 10 years.
My bet is that homeboy just wanted to kill some mud people.
but are you suggesting 'abnormality' equals defective? isn't 'abnormality' a necessary ingredient for evolution, or just 'acceptable abnormalities', where that can be more accurately defined as 'successfully sustained abnormalities'? think ghengis khan, not chaka khan
i just have difficulty embracing morality based upon atheism b/c of the lack of internal accountability for 'sin', or whatever it's called -- 'extra-moral behaviour'?
we don't care b/c we're so detached from each other. how many indians care about busses careening over cliffs, or swollen rivers carrying off villages? until it affects you by 2 degrees or less, then reactions are relegated to mindless & flippant posts like this one.
or using it to further our own agendas.
Who said anything about NOT wanting something to change? And I have news for you, the concept of mass murder is not a new one, nor is it restricted to the US or to guns. In SWA now they prefer explosives, much more random...every genocidal dictator, be it StalinHitlerPolPotIdiAmin has massacred many many more then spree killers could ever hope to. Baruch Goldstein slaughtered a bunch of Muslims...Brieviek- have you forgotten him? William Unek...S Africa, 57 total. Ahmed Ibragimov, Chchnya, 34 total. Its not just the US my friend. Its the whole damn world.
when this right wing fundamentalist is clamoring for more gun control, i think it's fair to say the debate has run its course
