    A better descriptor is that it is projection.

    I'm sure Christians wouldn't appreciate that.
    Yeah, especially since McVeigh wasn't a political rightwinger....

    Ugh, if we were talking about an abortion clinic a Christian would be my first thought. The same would be true of you and everyone else rejecting the fact that in this attack his first thought was that the guy was muslim



    Yeah, people get offended by all manner of reasonable assessments. Ever here of the saying "the truth hurts"? But someone taking offense to something doesn't mean it's not a reasonable or valid assessment
    We should all resist our "first thoughts" based on stereotypes and confirmation bias. They often lead to foolish actions.

    Oh God, this stupid rightwing meme. The no true Scotsman is the last bastion of rightwingers trying to explain the ugly results of their ugly ideology and rhetoric.

    Stereotypes and confirmation bias? I'm not sure that applies here, being that none was cast in the role of terrorist, nor did anyone make sweeping generalizations about individuals or groups

    In teapartyspeak, blaming means holding responsible for palpably failed conservative policies.

    But please, carry no and pretend economic policies have no consequences. It's the kind of delusion tea partiers are reduced to.

    I think assuming a gun massacre was carried out by a muslim is clearly nothing but prejudice and confirmation bias Most gun massacres are carried out by rightwing gun nuts -- like the guy who did this one. But conservatives don't remember those since they don't fit their stereotype.

    Meanwhile, whoever claimed that the killer in this case was a muslim extremist was dead wrong -- the guy was a Texan, with a concealed weapons permit, which is a lot worse.

    It's more evidence that we need to bite the bullet so to speak and repeal the 2nd Amendment. There was never a stupider more useless bit of chicanery pretending to protect rights than the 2nd Amendment.
