BUT the difference here is none of them BOMBED Boston or were recruited to go kill US soldiers in afghanny, or flew planes into buildings. Unless i missed something..


Well, I guess it's possible that you missed the part where we killed a COUPLE HUNDRED THOUSAND of their people since 2001.

Racism, or cultural-ism?

The U.S. Army staff sergeant accused of slaughtering 16 Afghan civilians in two villages pleaded guilty Wednesday in a move expected to spare him from the death penalty.

And when a military judge asked Robert Bales, 39, why he slaughtered the men, women and children outside Camp Belambay in southern Afghanistan on March 11, 2012, Bales gave his first and only public explanation for the attack.

"Sir, as far as why: I've asked that question a million times since then," said Bales, according to the Associated Press. "There's not a good reason in this world for why I did the horrible things I did."

Bales appeared in military uniform at Joint Base Lewis-McChord outside Seattle, where his military tribunal is being held.

Part of his plea deal with prosecutors involved a requirement that he give an account of the killings and of burning the villagers' bodies before returning to base with bloodstained clothing.

His initial recollection of the slaughter, which was recalled to the court and to the Los Angeles Times in vivid detail by the survivors, poured out in cold legalese.

"I left the VSP [Village Stability Platform at Belambay] and went to the nearby village of Alkozai," Bales told the judge, Col. Jeffery Nance, according to the AP. "While inside a compound in Alkozai, I observed a female I now know to be Na'ikmarga. I formed the intent to kill Na'ikmarga, and I did kill Na'ikmarga by shooting her with a firearm. This act was without legal justification, sir."

Ron, where did I call it a "christian thing" since you put it in quotations, it's supposed to be a QUOTE!!

And no, that wouldn't be silly at all...

Christians were there (M.E.) before Muslims right?

Christians are also participants in Palestinian terrorism, not that you ever hear that part of it.

Another Case of White Christian Racism and Cultural Terrorism:


Now I am not racist, in fact most of my friends are White People, but White People brought with them from Europe their own SECRET racism, and it goes against the laws!

And they brought with them their so called "religion" and their own "culture"

White Christians are at it again:


An Alabama high school student is being fined $1,000 and having her diploma withheld after wearing an eagle feather in her graduation cap on May 23.

Chelsey Ramer, of the Poarch Creek Band of Indians, wore the spiritually and culturally symbolic feather at her Escambia Academy High School graduation ceremony as a display of pride in her heritage, according to local news outlet WPMI-TV. However, a graduation dress code contract stated students were not allowed to wear “extraneous items during graduation exercises unless approved by the administration."

Personally, not that it matters, I think Ron is racist. I could be wrong, but his writing points directly at that. A thinly veiled cover is just that, thinly veiled. People can see through it.

I live in the backwoods of NH. Think town of 2000 people. There are a lot of racist people where I live. I've quit going to certian social gatherings because there are way too many comments about niggers and how many guns are owned. I'm cool with guns, I own them, but the overtly racist dialogue I hear when people are a little buzzed is really too much for me.

I have zero tolerance for racism, sexism, or homophobia.

Ron may actually believe he is not a racist, he may not realize the things he says are racist. I personally see thinly veiled racism in his words (as do most of this audience) but racism can be a product of misunderstanding as much as it is fueled by hate.

In fact, I will admit to saying very similar things at times, and I too profess to being color blind. I am willing to bet everyone, from any race, has said stupid sh#t before. If that ignorant or stupid thing you said was about racial generalizations or characteristics, then you too are guilty of the same thing. I'm not talking about racist jokes, I love those and I love hearing good ones, but that's when you know it's all in good fun or joking. I am talking about assumptions, mis-judging a book by it's cover and generalizations about people or neighborhoods that really are unneeded. My statements, though technically right or wrong at the time, in retrospect were pretty racist. And I don't think I am a racist, at least I don't want to believe I am and I don't want to be. But I am ignorant about many things and I have no problem admitting that.

Sure, let's all point and laugh, but lets remember why and try steering ourselves in the right direction too. There's nuance to this subject, you may not hate other races or people different than yourself but you may not understand them or understand the nuances of communicating about them or with them. In these cases, I think it's perfectly ok to claim ignorance. Taking responsibility for your ignorance is a much better approach than veiling your understanding and appearing hateful.

Ron has a hard time being wrong, so it's easy to guess that he wishes to appear strong, prideful and as a result hateful or "thinly veiled"...

Ron, you are referring to a positive story.

When anything negative happens regarding someone who was not born here, but lives here, you're the first to jump on the hate train (broad generalization, but mostly correct). Why?

Sorry to jump on the hate train toward you, but you asked for it in starting this thread.

Also, why do you write very well sometimes, but write like a hick in your writing other times?

Rons views are had by being an ex leo. Ron thinks to himself when he saw that photo in Georgia this am, that they: are certainly extremist islamics,
by the ODDS should most definitely be looked into, and that i would be worried if i came up in that scene as an leo.

There are hundreds being watched here now by FBI and DHS. Thats what i thought coming from being trained to simply spot the obvious. Those that have killed and maimed us here are islamic extremists.. The picture indicates the very same.

Ask your self what a Boston Victim would do driving in the woods into that ? How would they feel?

So i guess your ok with a sect that is against the gays, dogs, and womens rights then? I Then must assume your all sexists 100%...

So you profile people based on appearance in America, as a law enforcement officer and you are afraid of religions that are against gays, dogs and women's rights?

I don't know much about this dog thing, but Christians seem to fit your fear, are you a christian?

I "look like" a terrorist to many people, Ron...
... you probably haven't experienced that, you're not making a very convincing defense.

Ron,

The practice of penitente, including self-flaggelation has been going on in parts of New Mexico for hundreds of years, even before our nation was founded. I never thought to correlate the practice by those Catholics as terrorism.

Edit. ....now Ed, on the other hand..........
