an interesting article on comparing jihadis to the KKK/and similar groups: http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/17/opinions/striking-similarities-between-jihadis-and-kkk-sciutto/index.html 

stepping on the gas pedal isn't the only similarity.

the one thing that the article's author doesnt' get is that many religions are based on nationalism and the "chosen people" nonsense.

Okay, I'm out. 
Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
Why is it so hard for believers to answer a direct question?

Anfauglir, why are you out?
I always say what I mean. But sometimes I'm a sarcastic prick whose tone can't be properly communicated via text.

This comedian says that some of the statues were put up only recently, as a deliberate sneer to blacks.

When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be bleedn obvious.
