It makes me laugh all this faux outrage that people are focused on a Saudi for whatever reason.

There's a fucking reason these people are deemed suspicious by members of the public, especially when they're running away from a bomb blast. The people making a connection are not too blame for anything, the saudi's who have committed terrorist acts are. Whatever the eventual reality turns out to be doesn't change that one bit.

Liberals are so stuck up on race and religion about everything. Twitter was incredible, after a nasty terrorist attack, all people were intent on doing was telling people not to blame Muslims until all the facts are known. The idea you cannot make a connection to Muslims after a terrorist attack is absurd, given the majority of terrorist attacks these days are by Muslims.

If i see a Saudi man running away from where a bomb explosion just happened with some old white guy, or some little black woman, im gonna feel a little safer stepping towards them rather than a Saudi man...what's the big kerfuffle over that?

People argue with me about this and say stupid stuff like ''Not every Muslim is a terrorist'' No fucking shit. But a LOT of terrorists ARE Muslims, and a lot of Muslims look arab. Therefore it's not out of the realms of possibility after a bomb blast to be aware of this. So any outrage over a Saudi being tackled is really just looking to vent about agenda's already held & totally abstract from the fucking incident.

After such a nasty attack i expected the aftermath to be one of sympathy, shock, anger....patriotic defiance etc etc.
But it seems a large liberal base care more about trying to label people idiots for associating anything Muslim/arab related without any facts. And on here we saw the usual anti American crap by certain people.

Seriously an 8 yr old boy wearing a top saying 'No more hurting people' gets killed by a bomb & numerous other having to have limbs amputated, and some dudes first reaction is to say....''Well now we know how they feel with our drones''

What the Fuck is wrong with you people


Why are you outraged? It wasn't even the most deadly attack that day :roll:

None of that had to do with trivializing the support for Boston.


Not not at all. Not one bit.

I didn't think so either. Which brings me back to the question of whether or not this guy is clinically an idiot. Not for having an opinion, but for having a wildly uneducated one.

20% of the global Muslim population is arab. Please define "a lot". Indonesia is the world's largest Muslim country.

After such a nasty attack i expected the aftermath to be one of sympathy, shock, anger....patriotic defiance etc etc.


Patriotic defiance like when a mosque was firebombed because a guy who got caught in a Portland, OR bomb plot sting operation apparently prayed there a handful of times? Patriotic defiance of the Constitution, where all men are created equal? Patriotic defiance where people are innocent until proven guilty? What do you want people to be patriotically defiant about? Fear of brown people with beards and an accent?


What the Fuck is wrong with you people


I think a lot of us are wondering with the Fuck is wrong with people.

NEW YORK — Fox has pulled from websites a recent episode of “Family Guy” that depicts mass deaths at the Boston Marathon, and has no immediate plans to air it again.

Fox spokeswoman Gaude Paez said Tuesday the episode has been removed from Fox.com and Hulu.com.

In the episode, protagonist Peter Griffin is asked by sports announcer Bob Costas about his performance at the marathon. A flashback shows Peter mowing down runners with his car.

“I’ll tell ya, Bob, I just got in my car and drove it,” Griffin says. “And when there was a guy in my way, I killed him.”

Later, Peter befriends a terrorist who, unbeknownst to him, is plotting to blow up a bridge. When Peter dials a cellphone the friend has given him, explosions and screams are heard. On some websites, an edited clip has been circulating that fuses the two scenes, making it seem — incorrectly — as if the explosion was at the marathon. Some commenters have implied that the show “predicted” the bombings.

“Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane took to Twitter on Tuesday to vent anger over the edited clip and offer condolences to victims of Monday’s bombings at the marathon.

“The edited ‘Family Guy’ clip currently circulating is abhorrent,” MacFarlane tweeted. “The event was a crime and a tragedy, and my thoughts are with the victims.”

Im curious as to the motives of the people who merged the two clips. Did they want to make Family Guy look bad? Were they trying to make a joke? Are people just so bored and apathetic that they look for humor in anything now?

I just found it silly (for lack of a better word) that people would believe "Family Guy" predicted the bombing. But then again people believed that a rapper predicted the events of 9/11..

Correlation might not imply causation, but there's still a correlation, and statistics don't lie. Businesses around the world spends billions of dollars every year profiling people to better target consumers. And there's a reason they do it: it works. I don't care what you say: people from similar areas/cultures tend to think and act in similar ways.

So is the Muslim guy running from the scene guilty because he's Muslim? Of course not. But between the Muslim guy, the old white guy and the black lady, the Muslim guy is statistically more likely to be a terrorist.

They didn't. They are trolling.


Sadly, I don't believe that's the case. There seem to be some people out who believe there's a secret cabal pulling the strings to cause tragedies like this. So, after every tragedy, they find these bizarre connections that are easy to make in hindsight so long as they fit their agenda. They apparently find it easier to believe there's some monolithic force with an identifiable goal in mind (who apparently let Seth MacFarlane in on their big, secret plan) rather than accepting that there are just horrible people out there that do disgusting things we'll never be able to understand.

We saw the same thing after Sandy Hook and Aurora.

So profile away. Tackling an injured man trying to escape a blast site with shrapnel and a leg wound because he looks middle eastern is acting on profiling. Profesional news agencies publishing his name as a person of interest and ransacking his apartment and harassing his roommate is acting on profiling. It would be like finding out that a black guy committed an armed robbery a few blocks away, and having civilians start tackling black guys running away from the shootout because they fit the description. That shit wouldn't fly, but since it's somehow less taboo to be racist against arabs in modern society than other minorities, fewer people get up in arms over it.

Stop and think about this one. An arab dude was running away from an explosion, injured...and people tackled him and held him down until authorities could escort him to the hospital and guard his room, while federal authorities go through his stuff. You Libertarians, right leaning Constitutionalists, really don't care about this assault on civil liberties? Don't tread on me...tread on that brown guy over there? You sure as shit will when it's a handful of white people being profiled, attacked, and searched.

And a mob tackled him and held him down as he was running away from an explosion, injured, because his crime was looking fat and white? Boy, that's a dandy comparison. :roll:

Well, that's because they clearly hate us for our freedoms. Did you know that their women can't walk down the street in nipple pasties and a thong!?

Kidding aside, it's pretty spectacular. It's either people who are racist against Arabs (but being racist is so un-PC these days), or they are prejudiced against Muslims. I have no problem with people thinking the religion is shit, that's their prerogative, but when folks are acting on their bigotry of followers of that faith, that's where you have a the potential for real civil liberty issues and oppression. I wonder how many anarchists and abortion clinic bomb suspects were tortured over the past ten years. Probably somewhere between zero and less than zero.

As a person who doesn't "look Muslim" I've heard some incredibly vile, bigoted, disgusting shit, from people I would have expected better from.

Seriously, you think shit like that is going to go well with you, this is the same shit the USA pulls everytime they "accidentally" bombed/kill someone overseas. Oh well shit happens we are sorry, no hard feelings, here's $2000 bucks..

I do wonder how one can profile a religion? Can you tell a Muslim from a Christian from a Buddhist from a Jew?

Basically it all boils down to a bomb went off, and the assumed skin color of the closest person that could be a muslim is responsible.
