  1. Re: Religion of Peace Strikes Again: Teacher beheaded in France after showing Mohammed cartoons

    @Aex: looks to me to be the personification of Liberty, though I could be wrong.

    So the reasonable solution touted in this thread is to violate the rights of French citizens and deport them based...
  2. Re: PRC government called Australia "white trash"

    I said comparing Xi Jinping to Winnie was banned, not the squishy bear himself. But then again I’m obviously ‘white trash’ so I’m clearly just a brainwashed defender of an authoritarian government...

    He would probably ask why the peasantry is not working the fields and then ask to be lowered back into his grave. The fact you arbitrarily base your opinions off a thirteenth century French king is...
  4. Re: PRC government called Australia "white trash"

    It’s rather a case of false equivalency to compare singular incidents of racial abuse to Chinese Aussies to state sponsored repression by the state. If you were an Uyghur Muslim you would definitely...

  6. Re: Religion of Peace Strikes Again: Teacher beheaded in France after showing Mohammed cartoons

    So you think this is the normal week of a Muslim in the UK? Monday and Tuesday, molest some minors. Wednesday, stab an officer. Thursday, drive a truck into a building and then finally cap it all off...
  7. Re: Religion of Peace Strikes Again: Teacher beheaded in France after showing Mohammed cartoons

    Well I can only speak to my own experience in the UK. Two attacks in the UK this year isn’t exactly a huge number. Two the year previous to that, too. And the argument of Muslim ‘gangs’ being made...
  8. Re: Religion of Peace Strikes Again: Teacher beheaded in France after showing Mohammed cartoons

    And what ‘problem’ is that? I think if Islamic teachings were as dangerous as you seem to believe there would surely be far more issues than a lone teacher’s death. Considering how large the global...
  9. Re: Religion of Peace Strikes Again: Teacher beheaded in France after showing Mohammed cartoons

    Indeed, but the rhetoric is not being levied at oligarchs but instead the general Muslim population of western nations, characterised as an Islamic ‘gang’ or death squads, who are either waiting in...
  10. Re: Religion of Peace Strikes Again: Teacher beheaded in France after showing Mohammed cartoons

    You people. Who exactly are ‘you people’?

    Iím not sure Saint Louis will care. Being a corpse for seven hundred years tends to make one ambivalent. Especially towards the Republic that beheaded his direct descendent and namesake.
