"Help me understand: Do you Lefties like white jihadists, too? Or does the skin color not allow the enlightened to embrace him?"
Now, of course this is nonsensical. But it raises (by accident, mind you) an interesting question or two.
You see, I'm opposed to terrorism. I think terrorism is a horrible rot.
But I oppose all terrorism, not just that of "jihadis."
The question is....do you oppose all terrorism?
For example, what's your opinion on the intentional, material US support for the Indonesian state terrorists who murdered maybe a hundred thousand, maybe two hundred thousand East Timorese. (Not to mention as many or more Indonesian "communists" [sic], also with full-throated support of the US, UK, Australia, and several other terrorist allies?)
It's a serious question. Do you oppose terrorism...or only some terrorism?

no vote..lack of options....
We do have "freedom of the press" , do we not ?
Yes ! I do know that this "right" is limited - rights have to be...
Rags (magazines) no longer interest me....They can do as they like, even if in very poor taste.
What does interest me and stir me to action is "much ado about nothing" , as I recall, one of William Shakespeare's comedies...
This man was an utter genius with his use of the English language..

I really couldn't care less. The whole point of putting him on there was to sell magazines. And guess what, it worked.
When was the last time you paid any attention to rolling stone magazine before this?
