There is absolutely NO POINT in you people arguing over who you think did this act of violence. I am getting sick of reading all of these arguments going back and fourth when no one knows at this point who did it.
This insane act of violence is clearly hate driven... any act of violence is hate driven. And who ever committed this crime, when found, will have done nothing but destroyed their own cause.
"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." óJohn Adams
I am not CLAIMING Muslims did it. I have said from the beginning that no one KNOWS. Until it is KNOWN...it isnt a hate crime. Labelling it a hate crime states bias. And as long as the label hate crime gets bantied about with no evidence then it is just as viable to assume a people that have a HISTORY of slaughtering children and blowing up property would certainly not be above burning some equipment to make others look bad. And since there has been no 'proof' offered of anything regarding THIS crime as hate crime, well...then I guess I'll have to offer more 'evidence' of what 'Muslims' are like. Sicne everyoen likes 'evidence'.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
What is the definition of a hate crime, it seems to float depending on the group being assailed doesn't it?That would depend on why he or she burned down the mosque and if that reason accurately fits the definition of a hate crime according to the Penal Law of Tennessee.
Anyway, I'll check in the morning, just got in from a trip back from Indy so I am kind of tired...C ya'll in the AM.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
No, I never said that.
