No, not all terrorists are muslims and not all muslims are terrorists. But it's pure ignorance to believe that Islam is irrelevant to what is going on in the Middle East. It's pure ignorance as to the history of the religion. Unlike Christianity, Islam has never undergone a transformation. They still believe that it's right to kill non-believers. Liberals bitch about some Christians who disagree with gay marriage, but then turn a blind eye to rampaging savages who conquer and kill based on the teachings of Islam (and yes, it's because of Islam). There are many great Muslims out there who have personally transformed and ignore that part of the religion, but it's a big part they are ignoring, and thankfully they do that. Islam is not the religion of peace, unlike what the liberal PC police declare. There are peaceful people, but it was born in violence and continues to fulfill that. The Old Testament, which both Christians and Muslims follow, has its share of violence. The difference is that that was overruled when the New Testament came along. Jesus didn't preach violence like Muhammed did. There's a crucial difference. The Catholic Church went insane in the 13th, 14th, and 15th centuries, but there has been a transformation and most Christians are not violent. It is pure stupidity when liberals try and smear Christians by saying that every school shooting or whatever other shooting that occurs was done by a Christian, so therefore Christianity is violent like Islam. No, those idiots may have been Christian (though clearly don't follow Christianity), but most don't say they did their radical act because the Bible told them to. ISIS, al-Qaeda, al-Nusra, etc etc all do what they do because the Hadith and Quaran instruct them to. Go do some research, including research done by Muslims and Muslim converts who have issues with how Islam is in the current age. It needs a radical transformation, and denying that it plays a role in terrorism is pathetic. And it's even more pathetic to say that I'm prejudice or racist because I want a violent religion transformed so the good Muslims can follow their faith in peace without being smeared by the savage beasts committing the acts they do in the Middle East. Of course, many of you ignore the genocide being done against Christians in the Middle East, but it's much more serious than what is being done against peaceful Muslims here, which is very very little (recent study says Jews are discriminated against more than Muslims here in America, but that shouldn't be a surprise other than to Israel haters).

How about something more topical...

http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-35380343

I have to admit, that I'm not sure what to think on this one. Who other than Will Smith really was deserving of consideration, and if just Will, should it really be his wife that is making most of the noise? So, legitimate complaint? Personal pique? Both? Did Will (and/or others) really deserve recognition, or did his movie just look really boring, like a ESPN 30 for 30 special that was for some odd reason turned into a film?

Do people seriously expect something as shallow as the Oscars to be free of racism?

This feels a bit like a call for something akin to the Rooney Rule to me.

Everytime I hear that name I think: "Is that Engrish for 'Looney Rule'?" Then I correct myself: "No that would be 'Ruuni Ruru'. This is one of those anti-racist things that just feels patronizing, because the people doing it are trying to appear non-racist rather than simply not being racist."

Is that the rule that states we're supposed to pretend that Rooney Mara is a good actress that made it on her own rather than got born on 3rd base.

Is there a similar rule for her talentless hack of a sister Kate?

I'm so sick of you liberals playing the race card! What you guys don't understand is that thugs would be better off if our Supreme Court remembered that they are a judicial body and not a legislative one. Checks and balances! We are a nation of laws, not men.

A good article summing it up:

You're pushing it there, Unreasoner. (No, I didn't click; maybe it's a joke but I'm not about to find out.)

I was just making a joke based on something Frenzy said in one of his other threads. The links are all harmless, I just ran them through ShadyURL.

Here's the last one in plain form:
