    People like you will go on and on about THE GUN used in a mass shooting while not even knowing the names of the people killed by them. Do you know any of the names of the people shot in Christchurch? People like you are the first to say "white supremacy" when there's little proof of it. Nothing you say here means anything anymore. You're only empathetic when it benefits you, and that's the truly disgusting thing about the radical left bubble that you inhabit.
    Uh. There is a lot of proof of the Christchurch shootings being a a terrorist attack rooted in white supremacy.

    I've never seen you be empathetic.

    What is disgusting is how this massacre has been used to ignore terror attacks of different ideologies.

    Its because the US left does not understand nor care about how bigoted they are.

    Not disappointed.

    Don't let me stop ya, keep up the "fight".
    Sorry man, ignore the fuckers. It is just egoists going trying to be important in their "fight" against the *insert group you hate there*, wanting to be noticed.

    Dang that's gotta be harsh.
    It could also have ended in Denmark losing it's wealthiest family.
    Honestly, without any hyperbole I cannot imagine what it is like to live through/stay sane after something like this, for both parents and the remaining sibling.
    It's just... Fuck...

    Going to guess that at least some locals have similar situation right now.

    It's pretty obvious. They stand for what they see as marginalized groups, including Muslims, and if they were to use the term "terrorism against Christians", it stirs the pot of religious strife involving the group they are particularly trying to empower and protect: the Muslim community. Even if the terrorism was perpetrated by Muslims against Christians, that distracts from what they see as the greater point about the plight of Muslims on the whole, the obstacles they face, and so on. By using the same strong language for Sri Lanka as they did for, say, Christchurch, they damage the message about the problem they'd like to particularly focus on: the disenfranchised Muslim population and the obstacles they face.

    And it's a noble goal. And they tried to be as careful as they could to show proper acknowledgement of the Sri Lanka victims while still holding back on stirring the pot. I can't say I blame them. If you look closely, people who had, or have, a "D" next to their name are not the only ones who do this.

    I really thought there had been more terrorist attacks, but now I understand what you wrote. Not expecting such an amount of stupidity here, nobody is making less off the attack in Christchurch. YOU are the one bringing it up.

    What has that to do with the terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka? When he killed all those people on that island, everybody condemned him too. I won't call you stupid for forgetting 9/11, the obvious one.

    That’s a good point, by trying to protect and make the language political, which people see threw right away, they undermine their main objective.

    Obfuscating the truth, even with good intentions, makes the issue you are trying to fix worse. Because now people think you are hiding something.

    And you know what they say about good intentions.

    The path to it is paved by hell. I think.

    You just can't win with these people, Josuke. I guess it's just you and I against the world, as usual.
