It seems to be human nature, to find a 'bogey man' who represents all evil and frightfulness, and today for people of many countries, this is the Muslim. I don't think you (or I) will change the mind of anyone who has decided that these people (or some category of them) are evil made flesh.
Certainly, Muslims have carried out an amazing number of attacks against civilians in recent years. Imagine doing a tally: count up civilian deaths caused by massacres, or attacks in which there was a reasonable likelihood that half or more of casualties would be civilian non-combatants, sorting the figures by the religious self-identification of the attackers.
If this tally went back, say, 100 years, it is obvious that Muslims would be pikers: they wouldn't rate getting on the chart. But I think some folks would be surprised how the totals would come up if you looked only since WW II, or even in the past 10 years!
But it's no use arguing with someone who has chosen their bogey man. They will keep shifting the debate, for example saying that this slaughter of civilians was justified, whereas that slaughter was not.
If I, my friends, or people who look and sound like me do something, its a lot more OK than if people who look and sound different do the same thing. This seems to be a "moral law" wired into our DNA. Sigh.
smart martin -- think of it as a virus. a sociopathic virus. much in the same way hitler brainwashed a society to participate in an event that these chuckleheads claim never happened. it is a virus of the brain that is spread through constant manipualation and brainwashing. it is very real and becoming an epidemic. these folks are not just after the americans. it is any infedel and they are using such tactics to bring a corrupt mindset to innocents who have no real idea of what the rest of the world is REALLY like. So sure, over the years there have been conflicts among people for religious (mostly) territorial or other fueds. And there have been acts of terrorism throughout history. The KKK is an example of a terrorist organization. And many others. Ireland has had its share of wierdness. Africa -- it continues to this day the attrocities that go on between tribes etc. etc. etc. But be advised, these muslim extremists are a virus that is becoming a pandemic. And it is sad that most of these people have not a clue of the reality of the common actions and life of those who are targeted by their religious zealous leaders.
durak, we crossed wires here --- hmmmm... I am not sure if we are in agreement on this or just have slighty different views. Let's face it. There are still those isolated groups of people who rely on or are forced to believe what the leadership - those with guns and mite - tell them.
Mr. Wiginton is a big hater of Asians, along with African Americans, Australian Aborigines, Baby Seals, Episcopal Church, Hindus, Homosexuals and Transgendered ,Immigrants, Jews, Muslims, Native Americans, Yankees,and Race mixers. Hell he probably hates his Grandma.
Yes thank for putting words in my mouth. Wrong Wrong and Wrong again.
Hindism was started by a blond hair, blue eyed Aryan and was/is vry similar to the Pagan religion I follow.
Satan means adversary in Hebrew, so on the flip side since the hebes have endesly tride to destroy my people and their ways, then I consider judaism and what somes out of judaism the uttmost evil... my adversary.
Muslims and Xtians are born out of judaism..... evil and responsible for the deaths of millions including 1/3 of the white race from 400 ad to 1800 ad.. many more after 1800 ad as well.
The Episcopal Church.. more xtianity and evil.
I actually have more in common Native Americans than I do with white liberals and I respect the fact that Native American nearly fought to their extinction for their previous lands.
Homosexuals and transgender are against nature..therefore evil.
Race mixers are evil for what they do to their children.. they do not take into consideration the psychological and physilogical problems the child will have. Any one that is cruel to children out of selfishness is evil.
Baby seals are cute.
Australiam Aborigines are not human from my perspective.
Yankees.. who needs them? Naw they are OK.
Immigrants.. why can't tehy stay home and defend their land from tyranny. I woud assist them as USA can not take them all.
And Asians I truly respect. They have a sense of identity, unlike most white people today.
Grandma.. she was a bitch.
The absurdity is his comment a friend of mine who he loves dearly is half Russian half chinese.
monada like all russian guys are racist ukrainian girls are slut and they love strangers more than russian guys who are ugly drinks and swear alot if you want to sleep with a ukrainian girl just buy her a drink you can meet them on vk.com
i work at casino in usa.
we have some girls from ukraine, moldova with 3 month work visa.
they seem to hang out at bars with mostly large black men.
until about 3 or 4 weeks before their visa expires.
then it`s like every fat white guy has a chance to score.
To every racist out there, I am the living proof that your theories of separation are incorrect and are based on pure idiocy.
I was first of my promotion ( by far from the second ) in one of the hardest engineering schools in the world.
So if your theory was indeed correct, then I, one of the elite men on earth, a simple middle eastern "monkey" straight from Lebanon, would be more intelligent than most white people, therefore making my Race superior to yours.
That is absurdity at its best. And most "educated" people would agree with me. When you become really educated, you realize that race doesn't matter. By conclusion, most of you are not educated.
Also, you seem to link middle eastern men directly to Islam. Again, I am afraid to shatter all you ridiculous stereotyped ideas by telling you that half of the middle east is not muslim. ( Jews, Durze, Christians, Agnostics and Atheists).
Hope my message got delivered, wake up, and avoid steering that debate in front of people like me in real life, or you will get ridiculed hard.
Don't tell anyone that white people invented cars,aircraft,jet engines,modern steam ships,tv,computers,cameras,vacuum cleaners,electric guitars,electronic calculators.
just don't tell anyone these facts because certain black people scream racist.
even some white people that are desperate to ingratiate with ethnic people ( politically correct ) dare not reveal this information .
I don't need to remind you also that : Prahnav Mistry , an indian non white guy, is inventing ground breaking technologies, and is considered as a science legend.
That is just one example out of many.
Intelligence has nothing to do with race, like it or not.
I really want to thank you for your inquiry, but if you keep talking in racism dialogue, you will keep failing.
And Huck Finn, as long as it is the truth, I will keep saying it. There are as many ignorant people in the Middle East as in Europe/USA. So yes, I will shout it out till every idiot on earth wakes up, white, brown or black.
danny, your quarrel with someone has no value to this forum. your posturing here is of no value.
nobody else cares about your thing with martin. maybe some do. but to constantly bring it up here is a waste of your time and energy. unless you are just keeping track of things...
it takes two to tango. here is not the place.
