Quote# 64200

(in response to the conviction of a white supremacist on charges relating to bomb-making)

This is hardly in the same league as the multiple bombs that exploded on 7/7 killing 52 people or the same type of bombs that failed to explode on 21/7, or the huge car bombs that failed to explode outside Tiger Tiger in central London on 29/6/07 or the terror attack on Glasgow Airport 30/6/07, or the plot to blow up the Ministry of Sound with fertiliser bombs, or the liquid explosives plot in 2006, or the plot to kidnap and murder British soldiers or Richard Reid attempting to blow up a plane with a sophisticated shoe bomb in 2001. This is just one alcoholic man venting his frustrations at the injustices he sees going on in front of his eyes.

"This is just one alcoholic man venting his frustrations at the injustices he sees going on in front of his eyes."

Wow. I almost wish it was the defense's argument.

"Your honor, my client is not a white racist, he just made these bombs because he was drunk!
My client does not represent a danger to society, no sirree!"

So how many people do racists have to kill before we can nick 'em, then?

Excuses, excuses...

Nah, it's pretty much exactly the same league. Your terrorism may stem from a different source, but it's still terrorism.

How about the numerous of terrorist attacks carried out by whites in England, from the Northern Ireland troubles, to the BNP and its ilk bombing and plotting to bomb mosques, shopping centres and other places to start some race riots. Those details can be found online for anyone who wants to look for them. This isnt any different than any other attack.

So your argument is that whites are "superior" because we're too inept to make good bombs?

That's an argument that's gonna blow-up in your face, leaving you dripping with egg.

He was arrested on a train with 2 viable bombs. You'd better believe he's in the same league as the rest.

Life sucks, so you spend your time staring at the bottom of a bottle. Yeah, that's going to make the worlds a better place.

And columbine was just angsty teenagers venting their frustrations at everything.

Consider the source - this is just the kind of dickhead who reads the Daily (Hate)Mail.

7/24/2009 11:48:09 AM

it's one of those irregular verbs... like "I'm inspired, You're Eccentric, He's a loony".

in this case it's "You're a harmless drunk (creating bombs... yeah, harmless...) They're Terrorists"

"...just one alcoholic man venting his frustrations..."

By planning to blow other human beings into smithereens, just like Richard Reid, idiot!

7/24/2009 5:20:10 PM

Yes, he was SO frustrated, that he has to become one of them. Please, look for a better argument.

"This is just one alcoholic man venting his frustrations at the injustices he sees going on in front of his eyes."

I've got something that can utterly destroy your argument, Dave, and it's just Two Words:

Timothy McVeigh.

@Pule Thamex

Not just dripping with egg, but an entire chicken farm. To the extent he'd be covered in albumen & feathers, he wouldn't need to be tarred & feathered to be humiliated for his insane thinking. The yolk would be on him.

...I'll get my coat.

*snorts* Typical. If a woman flunks science, that means that all women are bad at science. If a Muslim bombs a day-care center, then that means that all Muslims are homicidal maniacs. If a black man is fired from work and becomes homeless, then that means that all blacks are lazy and good-for-nothing.

But if a white, Christian man ever fails at anything or does anything horrible, he's never taken as a representative of white men as a whole. He's an isolated incident, an individual, an EXCEPTION to the awesomeness that is White Male Supremacy.

White men can do poorly, do so-so, or do brilliantly and nobody will think anything of it. Meanwhile, women and minorities have to jump through hoops to even be ACKNOWLEDGED on the same level that white men are, and even then, it's often not enough, because if they do succeed, it's always a fluke. Or they were "lucky." Or they were helped out by affirmative action. Or they knew someone or slept with someone who made sure they were promoted. You know, anything but their own merits and talents as individuals. And if they ever slip up, if they ever make a mistake, then it's back to the starting line for you, and the Glorious White Patriarchy will all just smugly nod and sneer that they KNEW that there had to be a catch somewhere, they KNEW that something had to be wrong, for you to get where you are.

Just look at what poor Sonia Sotomayor had to go through. She went to Yale and Princeton, graduated with the highest honors, and has more judicial experience than any of her white male predecessors. If she were a white man, people would generally regard her with respect, no matter what her policies were. But since she's Hispanic, she must have only gotten to where she did because of affirmative action and she must be biased in favor of "her people," and because she's a woman, her alleged "temper" could be a liability, whereas Scalia, Alito, and Roberts can rage all they want and be as prejudiced as they want and nobody cares.

So, one crazy white guy can be convicted of making bombs and that's the way that he'll be remembered: as a crazy white guy. Nothing more, nothing less. Nobody will say that his behavior is indicative of anything wrong with white men as a whole. Nobody will say that we should keep tabs on white men and profile them. White racists like this idiot will pat themselves on the back and say, "What are you looking at ME for? I didn't do anything. It was just this one lunatic. There's nothing wrong with me or people like me. How can you suggest such a thing?"

I am so effing sick of this double standard. I really am.
