    Funny, no one rushed in there batting an eye about the stereotyping there and jumping to accusation.
    Had I seen that thread, I would have posted the exact same thing. Whoever did such a thing is a terrorist, period. If he acted in the name of Islam, we can call him an Islamic terrorist. Christianity? Christian terrorist. Or if he was acting in the name of Hello Kitty, hey, he's a Hello Kitty terrorist. Regardless of ideology, terrorism is still terrorism, and no sane individual is gonna defend it.

    So a right winger will kill an innocent judge or innocent people in a federal building to prove a point and that is different from a Islamic jihadist attacking an innocent American how? The way I see it both are attacking innocent people.

    Gee, I wonder why people would jump to the conclusion that it was a Muslim. How many terrorist attacks/plots have taken place or been foiled by Islamic terrorists in the past 10 years as opposed to right-wingers and or left-wingers?

    It's like not profiling people in the airport, but wait, how many hijackings have occurred since the 1980s by individuals who weren't Muslim?. Not very many.
    My point was people shouldn't jump to conclusions until an investigation is complete. Mayor Bloomberg shouldn't have jumped to the conclusion he did, just as others shouldn't jump to the conclusion it was a Islamic terrorist until more information is known.

    And why you even brought up hijackings I don't know because this wasn't a hijacking case. This was a bomb was put in a public area case.

    Your 3rd point has been addressed by others.
    No. I said you generalized by saying the left. Others have found a specific person, but that does not resemble the whole left.

    Oh. Did BKHad use a mainstream source? Looked to me like his source was freerepublic's blog section. Of course, I'm just basing this on the exact text he posted and the link in his post.

    Silly me.

    Some of us worry more about whether or not the information is truthful and accurate than who delivered it.

    Silly us.

    Sillier still when you disregard a source out of hand before checking it's veracity.

    When you start providing unbiased mainstream sources, I'll take them more seriously.

    Freeper sources deserve laughter as a response, and nothing more.

    Don't worry I listened to the audio and she never once even said the words Tea Partier. In fact here is the transcript.

    I mean the thing is is that and I get frustrated and there was part of me that was hoping this was not going to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country because there are a lot of people who want to use this terrorist intent to justify writing off people who believe in a certain way or come from certain countries or whose skin color is a certain way. I mean they use it as justification for really outdated bigotry.

    And so there was part of me was really hoping this would not be the case that here would be somebody who is not the defined. I mean heís accused heís arrested you know I donít want to convict him before itís time to do so. Heís the guy authorities say is involved. But that being said I mean we know even in recent history you have the Haitari militia from Michigan who have plans to letís face it create terror.

    Thatís what they were planning to do and they were doing so from far different backgrounds then what this guy is coming from. So, the threat is not just coming from people who decide that America is the place to be and you know come here and want to become citizens. Obviously this guy did.

    That's not exactly what "generalize" means, but I get your position. I don't think anyone is claiming that a majority of democrats have that desire.

    Agreed studying for finals has killed my ability to use the correct words sometimes. But he did say the left. And all I was trying to point out to him was majority of the left doesn't want that. A few maybe, but not the majority.
