    Why not? This same guy certainly did "go there" after the charleston shooting, he "goes there" everytime a thread invvong a firearm in any way is posted, did you expect any different?

    An event like this wouldn't happen in the states anyway, the FBI would break up a conspiracy this large before it started and even if they didn't our police officers are properly equipped with AR-15s in the patrol cars and have rapid SWAT back up on standby.

    It's perfectly appropriate here to discuss competence of the authorities

    There may not be an organized backlash, but there is violence at times, there was the Sihk gas station owner who was shot and killed in Arizona after 9/11 by a guy who said he was going to kill ragheads

    Do you have any data to support your "spike in hate crimes / violent assaults" claim?

    The Southern Poverty Law Center has tons of data

    The SPLC also received an 'F' rating by the American Institute of Philantropy:

    In 2005 the Center received the lowest rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy (August 2005, AIP Charity Rating Guide & Watchdog Report, Vol. No. 40, p. 18). The Institute dropped SPLC’s rating from a “C” to an “F” in the category of “Charities with Large Asset Reserves.”

    It seems that hyping threats, then asking for more cash from the gullible is one of their specialties.

    Doesn't mean the data is not correct.

    They are now in fact saying only one person was involved. I'd wager this nut wasn't even Tunisian either

    True, neither I, nor anybody else can prove a negative. For me, however, the SPLC's low ratings with several Charity oversight groups really limits their credibility.

    In addition, the military is reviewing whether or not they are a reliable source for training material after their definition of "hate group" got more than a little broad:

    Re: At least 27 killed in Tunisian beach attack.

    David Cameron is stating that the public must be prepared for a high British death toll after the attack in Sousse has now reported killed 38 people.

    Just horrific.

    The 2002 Bali Bombings killed 202 people (88 of those people were Australians).

    More than 600,000 Australians visited bali last year. Being fearful that something may happen and then changing your plans based on that means the Terrorists win. It will be a cold day in hell before I (and many others I know) will allow that to happen and live my life like that.
