Let us not make any mistake.  This is not an act of terrorism.  This was a hate-crime.  And I'm kinda sick of people on tumblr trying to label it terrorism.

Ironbite-it's not.

He killed his three next door neighbors over a parking place dispute. And they were amazingly good kids. I swear I could strangle that guy right now. Jesus fuck!

I sympathize completely. However, to use against us. Let me ask you a troll. On the one who pulled it. But here's the question: where do I think it might as well have stepped out of all people would cling to a layman.

It could be, a lot of hate crimes are done in order to "send a message" to other groups of said minority or to provoke further attacks on said group.

Granted, we don't know what the killers motives were so he could have just as easily done it just because.

I'm honestly tempted to shoot him myself.

And to think, if this weren't the land of muh-gunz it likely never would have gotten any worse than people shouting at each other...

Perhaps, but he's right.

Me, I'm wondering if this'll even be covered much. It's a white Man, presumably Christian and conservative, killing Muslims. Doesn't fit the narrative.

Every time I look at the story in the Washington Post, I just put my hands to my head.

Well, he is an atheist so the press has something to chew on.

Oh, another shooting? I was wondering how much longer it'd be.

An atheist going after Muslims? Doesn't fit the narrative of liberals (because we all "know" atheist=liberal) being soft on terror. I'm hoping that based off of that, the press won't cover that angle too thoroughly. In any case, I first heard of this story from atheist sources like Aron Ra who were denouncing it thoroughly.

However, an atheist DOES fit the narrative that not being Christian makes someone immoral.

I've checked Ray Comfort and Ken Ham's Facebook pages, and I'm going to check WND. Nothing yet about the shooting, though I'll be sure to stay tuned for more. Ray is a master of Orwellian doublethink, so despite his talking about how atheists never question Islam, he may very well discover his inner Islamophile (which he would probably think is an insult).

He'll probably say something like how the attack was staged to make it look like atheists hate Muslims, but in reality the victims were willing sacrifices to further the leftist plot to do whatever the hell he claims they're trying to do.
