    Apparently so.

    I don't think it is as much desperation as it is wanting to wait to see the actual facts come in. Same thing when liberals are labeled without much evidence to back it up, myself being no exception at times.

    It all depends. Are there now self-described "liberals" who like to play the same game as do so many self-described "conservatives" in treating politics at the most simplistic level of either/or mutually exclusive dichotomies as if one was rooting for their favorite football team?

    Perhaps if people relied less on the conformism inherent in their relation to their self-labelling as part of their identity, and spent more time engaged in actual critical thought, they might not be quibbling over that which is quite clearly a matter of liklihood, and get on with the discussion.

    Looks like they will have to factor security for their construction budgets.

    I don't think I said it was a hate crime. I'm simply making an observation. I would love it if conservatives were always so eager to look for evidence before jumping to conclusions.

    As you said, I'm only making an observation, based on what I know. What I know, is that some heavy equipment got burned at a construction site. IMO, it's an insurance job. If someone were trying to make a statement; why not wait a few months and burn the actual mosque?

    And you're basing that off what?

    I mean surely as you've claimed, we should wait for evidence before making an assumption...

    But nope. Clearly the evil muslims are doing this for insurance money... which they'd put straight back into constructing the Mosque... which would make it all quite pointless if it was...

    But please continue...

    The heavy equipment was owned by a Muslim owned construction company?

    To do an insurance job, you'd have to make money off of it.

    If they damaged their own equipment... to replace it. To build the mosque.

    Then they haven't made any money, making it pointless...
