Unintended consequences

2018-03-22 03:28:30 UTC  

@Sue✨ Yeah, it's such an outlier we fought a bunch of stupid wars over it, it was a pretty big deal. Over a thousand people died because we upset some rich saudi cunt with religious pull

2018-03-22 03:28:42 UTC  

They are not worth the $7 billion

2018-03-22 03:29:25 UTC  

That's why people don't include 9/11 in these "far right attacks have killed more than islam" meme-tier infographs, because it makes the graph so damn big you can't even see the far right deaths

2018-03-22 03:29:26 UTC  

Airlines could handle their own security much better

2018-03-22 03:29:39 UTC  

right, but i think the studies hooty posted earlier were more talking about the frequency of how often your standard terrorist attack happens and who commits them, putting 9/11 in there defeats the purpose

2018-03-22 03:29:50 UTC  

I do not trust airlines to handle my luggage, let alone my security

2018-03-22 03:30:14 UTC  

do you think there'd be less incidents without security

2018-03-22 03:30:14 UTC  

@Sue✨ I'm pretty sure the "point" was to say that islam has somehow killed less

2018-03-22 03:30:30 UTC  

Well it's really hard to get jihadits on planes anymore so yeah homegrown terrorism happens more often

2018-03-22 03:30:42 UTC  

Unless it's the UK of course

2018-03-22 03:31:24 UTC  

@Deleted User I'd imagine so, but it's impossible to prove

2018-03-22 03:31:43 UTC  

Where I'm scared to be edgy incase the SAS invade my house

2018-03-22 03:31:44 UTC  

Who knows how many insane persons have been deterred over the years by the simple idea that they'd get caught

2018-03-22 03:31:59 UTC  

@Edgy_Username Yeah, you guys fucked it

2018-03-22 03:32:14 UTC  

Eliminate parliment now, start over

2018-03-22 03:32:59 UTC  

We're to far gone we have no say about what happens in our government

2018-03-22 03:33:13 UTC  

the article could've been a little clearer about its numbers but generally politifact is fairly ok

2018-03-22 03:33:17 UTC  

Look at that garbage, for instance

2018-03-22 03:33:30 UTC  

It ends with "Not a single death has resulted from terrorist activity by a Muslim extremist refugee."

2018-03-22 03:33:52 UTC  

well, yes, that's a different article, yes

2018-03-22 03:34:08 UTC  

I have Muslim uncles and the one thing they detest the most is refugees which surprised me

2018-03-22 03:34:18 UTC  

Ah yes, not a single person known to be an enemy of the united states on religious grounds has been granted passage into the US and then carried out a lethal attack on american soil

2018-03-22 03:34:22 UTC  

What a surprise

2018-03-22 03:35:08 UTC  

Twisting the question, imagine my shock

2018-03-22 03:35:45 UTC  

@Sue✨ My point is that all the articles of that nature are attempting to place the blame on "far right" terrorism while minimizing the number of people killed by islamists. They obfuscate, quibble over definitions, distort data, and manipulate statistics wherever possible and the BEST they can do is the first article posted

2018-03-22 03:37:04 UTC  

The one where excluding that ONE time islam killed 1k+ people in a day, it still killed more than "far right" (a very inclusive group apparently) did over 15 years

2018-03-22 03:37:15 UTC  

@banestrum that's so silly though

2018-03-22 03:37:28 UTC  

they obviously are a deterrence

2018-03-22 03:37:45 UTC  

Who is that in your pfp @Deleted User

2018-03-22 03:37:49 UTC  

And they attempt to dress it up as "Far right extremists have committed more attacks". Great, they're not very good at killing people, so by your logic we shouldn't worry about them.

2018-03-22 03:37:55 UTC  

@Deleted User The what now?

2018-03-22 03:37:56 UTC  

sure, i'm not trying to make the point that islamists did more or less, i was just pointing out a few things about what hooty's article was talking about

2018-03-22 03:38:07 UTC  

It's like when you reinforce policing of crime-ridden areas, crime goes down, then some idiot activists complain "see, there's no crime happening there, you're a bigot because you insinuated they needed extra policing."

2018-03-22 03:38:13 UTC  

Yeah, it just amazes me that that one is the best of the bunch

2018-03-22 03:38:39 UTC  

The BEST one is "Islamists might kill more people, but far right groups attack more often"

2018-03-22 03:38:50 UTC  

With a bunch of asterisks at the end

2018-03-22 03:39:29 UTC  

*"Far right" includes hispanics and unaffiliated people who commit hate crimes

2018-03-22 03:39:40 UTC  

Do you guys believe in a Jewspiracy?

2018-03-22 03:39:49 UTC  

Lol no
