A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
Lord knows if a Muslim walked into that. Church and laid waist to those lives there be no hesitation about what conservatives would be calling it. And we certainly wouldn't be discussing what the poor shooter's mental state was at the time.
As a culture we have prided ourselves on protecting the freedom of people to be who they are, worship whom they will, speak with freedom and live with dignity. Murder based on race, creed, etc is even more disruptive to our social structure than murder alone.
I read the double standard bugs you.. I get it. I just think it's so far from the POINT of today it doesn't really matter.
Oh yes it is!
Especially when you offer a picture to back up the bigoted claim, and not one single sociological study even hinting that the right is any more bigoted than the left. And, sir, in my experience and the blind attitude expressed in your post, I would say a possibly even bigger problem, only aimed at a different hate target.
What all Canadians know, is that everything, everything in America is race. Everything. Denzel Washington cannot be just a great actor, he has to be a "black" actor. What many of us know is that Americans hate each other, right vs left, Democrat vs Republican, them vs us. I, a long standing liberal who has supported causes you guys are getting arround to talking about immediately gets labelled a "con" or "neo con" simply for taking a stand similar to conservatives. That's bigotry with a capital ****ing "B".
We have ideological differences, not death threats over ****ing pizza. If there was ever an outright example of left wing hate that was it, and the fact I saw not one left winger in here denounce it. The left cannot point a bigoted finger at bigotry and claim the other guys are guilty.
