    Default Explosion at Boston Marathon

    Crazy. Like many, I'm wondering if this is the work of radical muslims.
    When they said "sit down", I stood up.

    Could also be a radical statement by some domestic anti-taxation nutjobs. The Boston Marathon was pretty much the most high-profile American event that occurred on Tax Day.

    "DIE!!!!!"

    This seems more homegrown to me. If it were international terrorism, I think it would have been a bit more damaging and a bit more high profile of a target.

    Wishing that, just once, I could open a thread about this without the first words being some unfounded accusation against Muslims. Because, you know, there aren't any terrorists of any other nationality or anything. Lame.

    This is ridiculous.

    Look, if I were a public figure, I wouldn't say something like I said in the original post and would hope that others follow suit. But I'm not allowed suspect that as a private citizen? I just have to disregard recent history to be politically correct?

    Seriously...This to the max: http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com/2008...eing-offended/

    Edit: I know it doesn't advance arguments to rely on things that are associated with the strawman argument, but I literally feel like this is what is truly in play here.

    Actually, yeah, shithead. You are disregarding recent history.

    How many domestic terrorism attempts do you think there are versus international terrorists? One in a hundred? One in twenty? One in ten?

    Try one in four.

    A quarter of attempted insurgent/terrorist attacks against the United States have been by 'homegrown' terrorist organizations.

    This is, by the way, significant for more than one reason. The first - and most significant - is that homegrown terrorist organization have as their targets locations within the continental United States, whereas organizations like Al-Qaeda (what's left of it) or Al-Shabaab will also target destinations like embassies or oil pipelines, all of which count as attacks 'against the United States.'

    It'd be more interesting if you consider military targets - according to the report, 4/10 attacks against military targets are against the US. Hmmm... I wonder if they mean one of the military bases outside of the US? Can't be, how many of those are there even. Probably not 'over a thousand.'

    But what is seriously getting on my balls is you suggesting that 'Muslims' are responsible. It enrages me and proves what a stupid fucking moron you are. I have given you the benefit of the doubt, bighead. But I am at the end of my patience.

    Terrorism is a political act, dickfuck. Reducing it to 'radical Islam' isn't stupid - it's a front-line example of cognitive impairment. The vast majority of 'terrorist' action has openly embraced political stances related to the rampant spread of American/Western capitalism under the guise of 'globalism,' the support for a corrupt and brutally aggressive regime in Israel, and the exclusionary tactics with regards to nuclear technology and the 'legitimate violent action' rhetoric that NATO has embraced.

    But those of us who are too inept or incompetent to think for ourselves don't bother to factor that in, because it's easier to register everyone else as a 'Muslim extremist.' Christian dickbags exist too, but every kid who ever prayed before putting on his country's uniform and getting shot in the head wasn't an extremist. He was a political tool. We remember that fact for him, but not for the Iraqi who watched his country get destroyed twice in his lifetime.

    First of all, let me start by establishing that I believe that at some point, if the likelihood that a certain group is responsible is great enough, there is nothing wrong with stating that you strongly considering that they are responsible. Obviously, this likelihood is based on statistics, but also circumstantial factors.

    Next, I would suggest that while broad statistics on domestic terrorism over the past 40 years show that the perpetrators aren't usually Muslim, this ignores the fact that Al Qaeda and other radical groups have risen to prominence in recent times. Muslim terrorists have explicitly stated that they WILL continue to carry out these attacks. That can't be considered? We have to focus only on broad statistics of the past 40 years? Also, if you narrow down the statistics to domestic terrorists attacks on non-governmental targets, I'll bet you that radical Muslims are statistically behind these attacks most often. After all, radical Muslims want to terrorize all Americans, whereas a domestic terrorists such as Timothy McVeigh targeted a Federal building. I honestly believe that when people state that are strongly considering that it was radical Muslims, they considering factors like this. Granted, if someone is using judgmental language to suggest that it was "probably" Muslims, or perhaps something more distasteful, I could sympathize with you. All I said is that I "wonder" if it was "radical Muslims". Don't see the problem there.

    Do you think the experts in the FBI who are working on this case didn't lean a good deal of their resources and focus towards Muslim radicals?

    Basically, you are ignoring certain variables that give people every right to strongly consider, based on statistical likelihood and circumstantial factors, that radical Muslims are responsible.

    See number 1 on the list.

    Professional writers/new orgs don't seem to think there's anything wrong with considering that it was radical muslims either...

    It could have been a lot of things, Bighead. But you have a problem with brown people and people will continue to call you out on that.
