    Sadly true. These people don’t actually have to leave their bedroom to get radicalised nowadays. This nut though apparently spent time in Europe so almost certainly personally interacted with white supremacists there.

    Nobody said it was Australia’s fault.

    49 Killed in Shooting in NZ

    What the supremely ignorant white supremacists/Christian fundamentalists do not understand is how indiscriminate Islamic terrorism has been. In effect they have killed more Muslims than Christians. Actual body count, striking fear, and publicity has been more important than the actual identities of the dead and injured. On the other hand white supremacists have sought to target mosques and non-whites generally. They could ultimately induce a change of tactic by ISIS and find themselves and their kin specifically targetted in response leading to an underground ‘war’ taking place within all western democracies more in tune with gangster wars and gang warfare.

    Further evidence, if it was needed, that this ‘sovereignty’ thing is overrated.

    I made no comment on the article but you did so was interested to find out what was factually inaccurate in it. You don’t actually contradict any of the facts in the article though.

    Why not? Didn’t she vote against the motion to take hard Brexit off the table?

    Can you highlight the factual inaccuracies in the article?

    49 Killed in Shooting in NZ

    There is actually a part of me that is grateful that low-lifes like Anning feel comfortable spouting their twisted and hate-filled narrative. At least it is there for all to see I suppose. But then again the likes of Hitler was able to spout vile rhetoric in the 30s and normalised it for the broad swathe of the German population. And we know how that ended. The normalisation of hate speech is probably the bellweather here. Trump crosses that line all the time and, in so doing, gets to move the line. The likes of Hanson and others here do likewise. Anning probably tried to move the line too far, too fast with his comments. The other extreme politicians are probably the most angry (quietly) about Anning for speaking out what they were thinking at an inappropriate time more than anything else.

    49 Killed in Shooting in NZ

    Like you and others here I don’t find the far right arguments/comments particularly helpful. But people like this killer don’t develop the kind of fear/hatred that makes them feel justified to kill dozens of people - solely on their belief system - in a vacuum. There are too many people who no longer hesitate to spout or share hateful rhetoric, targetted news stories/commentary, and even fake stories and a great deal of this is aimed at immigrants, muslims, gays etc and there is something of an echo chamber about it. Many unfortunately support right wing politicians. Some of this stuff is shared to me by acquaintances who must assume that I will identify with it simply because I am a white, middle-aged male as they are. My hope is that this gives such people pause. It is painfully apparent that the religion, origin, ethnicity or skin colour has no bearing on how mindlessly brutal some people can be.

    Three reasonable propositions..........so not very likely.

    Ok. I take it back and accept your proposition that you are really a moron. My mistake.

    49 Killed in Shooting in NZ

    I am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. I do however believe that there is already good information about this killer’s motivation and eco-warrior is not it and the claim should have given you pause. What are the chances he shot up mosques as an environmental protest ffs? It doesn’t change my main point in that if you know nothing about the source then you should not share it just because it happened to pop up on your FB feed. It is how fake and dangerous propoganda spreads and how these nutjobs get radicalised.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Firstly, imagine a GE campaign focussed around a single issue with party affiliation and policy coming a distant second behind the Brexit voting record of the incumbent and any opponent trying to second guess that constituencies standpoint based on the 2016 referendum data. Corbyn would presumably stand on his vague proposals to go back to the EU and negotiate a new deal with zero chance that he could be assured that Parliament would support it and against a backdrop of an EU very reluctant to restart negotiations. So if Corbyn didn’t even get a deal then his fall-back of a 2nd referendum would be what exactly, a vote on May’s deal? And what Brexit manifesto could the Tories coalesce behind? Or is it every man/woman for him/herself. A GE might just result in a Parliament with a similar composition to now with a slim Tory majority and May claiming that this was an endorsement of her position and all other saying the same. In other words a GE is most likely to just waste a few months and get us nowhere and lead to a government with no actual manifesto.

    Sorry, but you are just sick. Presumably you would agree that paedophiles raping children should be allowed to distribute the footage too so that you could choose whether or not to watch it. Because it is news.

    So you would be happy to view footage of ISIS terrorists cutting off the heads of hostages so that this could be shared and viewed by their families? On the basis that this is news. Appalling insight into your true nature.
