Re: “The Agenda: Senate votes down gun proposals; CofC athletic director out; Confederate flag snatchers

'More of those white mass murderers.'

I would post every news article of every white murderer but I'm not a pedantic dickhead and I happen to understand that the plural of 'anecdote' is not 'data.'

'thank you for a rare admission that your hysteria about white males was uber-bogus.'

Hyperbole not allowed! My point is that you are more likely to be murdered by a white mass shooter than an african american or asian one and you guys' abject fear of islam is absolutely unfounded. The numbers bear that out--even with the limited sample size.

'You no doubt also noted in the Mother Jones list that the major weapon used was handguns, yes?'

I did indeed notice the prominence although I didn't go through and count the percentage. Handguns are a blind spot in gun legislation in spite of being the most concealable and prominent weapons used in most crime.

I have been a vocal critic of this omission in proposed and past gun legislation.

'Anyone that doesn't agree on any or every leftist point is persona non grata, anathema, their words cannot be considered.'

I speak for myself. While I generally agree with him on the destructive tendencies of organized religion, I do not agree that Islam is more dangerous than any other.

History agrees with me.

He also calls himself a comedian, which is his best joke yet.

More of those white mass murderers.

You no doubt also noted in the Mother Jones list that the major weapon used was handguns, yes? Of course, this ignores that fact that it's only mass shootings that are listed, there are mass murders committed with other weapons in the US obviously.

Another problem in the Mother Jones list is that the recent Arab / South Asian terrorists are incorrectly classified as "other" instead of Asian. I corrected for that in the ration (including the % of the population).

However, "So, allowing that mass shootings are proportionately well-represented by demography..." thank you for a rare admission that your hysteria about white males was uber-bogus.

The US murder rate could absolutely be decreased. Changes to existing firearms laws are, if anything, only a small part of the means by which that could be accomplished.

But, by all means, carry on with your obsession with inanimate objects and their imaginary causative effect on the human decisions to commit murder.

Re: “The Agenda: Senate votes down gun proposals; CofC athletic director out; Confederate flag snatchers

@leemajors

Why don't you "do the math" on this...1.6bn Muslims, an alarming percentage of which support Sharia law. Don't worry, Mr. "99%", the author does the math for you at the end for those Muslims already in the country (and those numbers are higher now and growing).

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2015/1…

If you have concerns with the threat "white Christians" pose in America today, you should be utterly terrified of the real and potential threat radical Islam poses, and will increasingly pose, if left unchecked. It is the purest, most seductive form of evil on this planet since the rise of Nazi Germany, and continued appeasement of this evil will have a similar result now as then.

Islam, by its very definition, is a religion of (at best metaphorical) conquest and submission, made even more violent and intolerant when even slightly taken to extremes. Sharia law? Dark Ages barbarism, but somehow vibrant and resurgent in the 21st century within the fastest growing religion on the planet. Do you like your civil rights? Gone. Freedom of thought, religion, and expression? Gone, violators executed as apostates/infidels. Do you like/support women? Subjugated, raped, mutilated. Do you support LGBTQ? Executed. And you're probably more exercised over Trump.

Hell, even Bill Maher gets it, and is rightly flummoxed that more liberals don't. You and other willfully ignorant leftist lemmings like you need to wake up to the real threats in this country, and this world.

If Costco would make a chili cheese dog it would be my hands down favorite, especially at their price.
Since they don't, I have to go with Sonic.

Just be prepared to spend some money at parlor deluxe. We were trying to find something more kid friendly than King st and trying not to break the bank. We ended up dropping $50 on 2 plain hot dogs, one specialty hot dog, 3 cheer wines, and 3 ice creams. It was delicious, but costly

Why would you continue to deny that Islamic Extremists pose a more definitive and dangerous threat to western republics than any other religious group?

A worldwide organized threat of any other religious group to force us all to their way of thinking with pure violence does not exist.

Re: “The Agenda: Senate votes down gun proposals; CofC athletic director out; Confederate flag snatchers

Furthermore Cid, using Mother Jones' statistics you reference and 2010 census data:

Asian killers were involved in 7.4% of mass shootings (6/81). They are 4.7% of the population.

Whites perpetuated 59.2% of mass shootings (48/81), with a population % of 63.7.

African Americans? 14.8% of mass shooters (12/81) compared to 12.2% of population.

So, allowing that mass shootings are proportionately well-represented by demography, lets move on to the how the weapons were purchased.

79% of the shooters purchased their weapons LEGALLY (64/81)--meaning they were LAW ABIDING GUN OWNERS right up until the moment they were pumping bystanders full of legally purchased lead.

Never mind that a significant portion of these weapons would've been banned by the admittedly short-sighted AWB from the 90s--its clear that guns are just too easily available.

Now, I know you like to say that we have enough gun laws they 'just need to be enforced'--but its clear that loopholes for legal gun purchases make us less safe.

Adding insult to injury, OTHER NATIONS have approached the issue of easily perpetuated mass gun death and made them a near-statistical anomaly.

In your own words "obviously, one is too many"--but 81(!) is just the price of freedom eh?

Maybe we should do something about it.

Re: “Don't let Nikki Haley's transformation fool you

What a disgusting, sloppy, unprofessional attack on our Governor. First, you attack her for not being poor. How does being poor better qualify someone for public office? In the land of opportunity, where anyone with brains and skills can rise up out of poverty against all odds, why should I be voting for poor, unaccomplished Democrats like Bernie Sanders who couldn't operate a hot dog stand for a profit? Because they are better qualified than someone who is successful and has wealth as a result of it? NO. They aren't. So there goes your first strawman attack. And for your information, Republicans did not hold a majority in South Carolina or anywhere else in the South until long after slavery had been abolished. You do realize that hundreds of thousands of white Christian Republicans died to FREE slaves from southern Democrat slavery and bondage, right? Are you desperate to bring back the glory days when white racist Democrats were in power in South Carolina? When will YOU change, Mr. Catastrophe? When will you begin ironing your shirts? I think you're just upset that Charleston didn't react the way Ferguson did or Baltimore did. You and your liberal friends wanted an excuse to loot, riot, destroy private property, and not show up to work. In Charleston, the black community and Christian community came together and reacted to the terror in a responsible, righteous, forgiving way and you hate that. You're the one who won't change. Just another racist white democrat wishing your political party didn't lose the Civil War, so now you pretend to be the expert on race relations and pretend to care about black people even though you still look at them and speak about them like some exhibit in a museum, or just use them like a political opportunist.

And why did you bring up transgender issues? I must be old school because where I come from you discern someone's gender based on their anatomy. Someone's liberal wimpy feelings don't determine their sex. Maybe they never took sex ed.? I discriminate male versus female according to reproductive organs. That must make me a heretic! I also discriminate green lights from red lights when I'm commuting. Discrimination!!!

And murdering unborn babies doesn't make you a good person. Only 1% of abortions are due to rape and no one challenges those. The other 99% are just acts of baby butchering disguised as some "choice" even though you liberal democrat progressive neo-marxists try to rob me of free choices to live my life how I want to every single day. You liberals don't believe in a choice which school I send my children to. You don't believe in me choosing whether I want healthcare insurance or not. Instead I get mandates from government goons. You don't believe in me choosing whether or not I want to arm myself to protect my family. You confiscate my earned income without choice. I can't even choose which color to paint my house without some liberal council or boardman approving it. I know you liberals don't believe in liberty and free choice, you believe in coercive power and fiat banking and insurance schemes.

And why didn't Democrats run someone more virtuous than that lawyerboy Vincent Sheehan? I mean you hate Governor Haley so much, but who did your immoral party of frauds run against her? You liberals are so worried about Brock Turner's soft 6 month sentence, but you ran a candidate for Governor who got a rapist, Isiah Junior Outten, off on 38 days served! Court records prove it. So why did you run a candidate for Governor who defended a man who raped 11 year old and 14 year old girls in the woods? Answer me Mat Catastrophe. Defend your fraudulent, racist, hypocritical political party's choice of candidate it ran against Governor Haley.

Governor Haley is a minority. I think you're just racist against her because she's a minority and you're waging a war on women. I mean, surely that would be the ridiculous accusations if I were to criticize a minority female Democrat. So let's turn the tables so you can see how silly and petty your own political party is.
