We're talking about Israel and Palestine. All logic points to the crazy jews being a better deal than the crazy muslims. We can make the comments less inflammatory but then I'm going to get bored posting. If we're talking in this context, it's pretty ridiculous to point out that islam is being singled out, because we're viewing it on a spectrum where islam is top dog at strawberry floating kids, killing gays, raping women, and then you got the other religious nuts, but hand on heart, which suicide bomber and mass shooter is turning out any other religion than islam when religious motivations are at hand? None.


Can you imagine going to a womens right conference and complaining about people singling out misogyny and then saying that there's lots of misandrists out there and why are we still singling out misogynists? See how ridiculous that sounds? Ridiculous and islam go hand in hand though, so it's no surprise people go full retard when talking about. It's just surprising to me that the very people who would be victims under islam are the ones who jump up to defend it, while exmuslims and people who have studied islam, are the ones who are called racist and ignorant.


I think you need to get away from shitty labels like "alt righter" and "hurr durr racist". It doesn't add anything to the topic, and just makes people look like ignorant twats hiding behind labels. If you ask me "do you want all muslims to die or be killed?" You know the answer to that is no, but if you rephrase it as "do you want to wipe out islam with education and not tolerating intolerance?" The answer is yes. This rush to throw out accusations of racism, alt righters, trump apologists....it's all garbage nonsense for virtue signallers. Yes I get it, you're not racist, but you're a pussy hiding behind those labels.

In the nicest possible way, your a strawberry floating idiot and need to seriously take a look at yourself and your views as they are the worst kind of disgusting.

If you're free next week I could really do with using that broad brush you're painting over a billion people with to paint my lounge.

We were until you came in and started shitposting about Muslims. If you want to say something specific about Hamas, do that instead of frothing at the mouth about how evil you think Islam is and making yourself look like a clueless prick.

The highest rate of LGBT killings per capita is arguably in Brazil. The Protestant terrorist group Army of God conducted a shooting in Colorado Springs in 2015. Sri Lanka's Buddhist terrorist organisation Bodu Bala Sena incited anti-Muslim riots in 2014. A Hindu 'paramilitary' organisation Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh bombed a Sufi shrine in 2007. The Christian cult Lord's Resistance Army killed thousands and trafficked children for sex in the late 2000s. The East Asian mystical sect Aum Shinrikyo was behind the sarin gas attack in Tokyo in 1995. Fundamentalist Orthodox Jewish terror organisation Revolt was behind anti-Palestinian arson attacks in 2015. The Sikh radical group Khalistan Commando Force assassinated Indian politician Beant Singh in 1995. I could go on...?

You've made this analogy twice now and I don't understand it. I suspect this is because it makes no sense, but feel free to elaborate.

I think the crux of what silva is hammering a screw at is all religions are bad and do atrocious things and in many ways incite hatred and conflict, but is particularly pissed of with Islam, and doing it in a characteristically tactless way like some athiests. imo Karl highlighting atrocities committed by various religious sects highlights a bit of tunnel vision here and it does bother me even if it appears strangely sentimentalist when Islam is attacked like that. Whether or not these bad things are inherently encoded into Islam, that may be true, however I think a pretty equal degree of evil stuff can be read into other religions, even the nihilistic aspects of Buddhism.

I respect his point of view, but not sure how it will work out in terms of palatability. I think that's up to the other people in this discussion first and foremost, however this thread is ultimately about US politics and this reminds me of the odyssey that was the Religion Thread in years a yonder. It's been done. Maybe it's time to do it again, but honestly, I'm not sure it's something worth encouraging as I'm not sure to what practical end it can foster. No censor here.

I have to be honest here, I don't know enough about the Israel-Palestine conflict to fully grasp an opinion on it. I really need to read up on it.

It's one of those things that is so drawn out and so "dualised" with bad gooseberry fool happening so often that it seems to delay opinion on the matter indefinitely. A huge stalemate. I hope for the citizens concerned that they stop killing each other eventually, but it's a pretty clear case for why fundamentalism, and providing Western arms, is not a good mix towards a peace process.

Paul Ryan says that next year Congress will be looking at big cuts to welfare, Medicare and Medicaid. Because that's just what rich people like to do - strawberry float the poor in the ass, every chance they get.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Apparently in their haste to make tax amendments the GOP has accidentally raised taxes for corporations. Whoops!!!

I don't think you understand just how little republicans give a gooseberry fool about the poor.
The mindset they have is that the poor are only poor because they are lazy and stupid and everyone can become rich just by hard work.
They obviously fail to notice parents with 2 or 3 jobs just to send the kids to college (the kids will most likely still end up paying off the debt for decades anyway) or pay for the care of parents with dementia or other debilitating condition.
Those people just need to Get good and get a better job and become rich but they obviously haven't thought of that for some unknown reason.

I'd like to think that the GOP will never recover from a Trump presidency, but the scary thing is that it'll probably only make them stronger. Trump actually sort of reminds me of Terry Crews in Idiocracy at this point.

He is far worse than Terry Crews character. He realised that he was an idiot and ended up letting Luke Wilson fix the problems, made him Vice President and in the end Wilson became President.

I don’t see Trump doing any of that. ;)

Series 5 Logan had 10 times the intelligence.

He’s basically Biff Tannen in the alternate timeline if Tannen had become President. Although Biff was kinder and far more intelligent.
