Armed protesters stalk peaceful Muslims at Texas mosque: We want to show force


A group of armed protesters who wanted to “show force” gathered outside a Texas mosque Saturday in response rumors about Syrian refugees and Sharia law.

The group, calling itself the Bureau of American Islamic Relations, stationed itself outside the Islamic Center of Irving carrying signs with messages like, “Stop the Islamization of America,” according to the Dallas Morning News. A video taken at the mosque shows a man dressed in black with his face masked carrying a rifle.

The group’s leader told the News they were upset because they had heard rumors of a Sharia court at the mosque and the prospect of letting Syrian refugees in. They also claimed members of the local Muslim community had made death threats against Irving’s mayor, Beth Van Duyne, earlier this year. The News found no evidence that this claim was true.

When asked by the News why his group was armed, organizer David Wright said the weapons were “mostly for self protection,” but then added, “But I’m not going to lie. We do want to show force. We’re not sitting ducks.”

Trump saying he wants badges on Muslims was calculated and scary as hell!


He didn't say that because of some knee jerk reaction, he said it because he knows a lot of Americans would support him and it will help him in the polls. We need to be vigilant because the rise of the haters seems to be underway. Hell, plenty of these folks are "friends" on Facebook starting to show there true colors. They are all over the place. It all started when they saw a black man become president and now they want to show their power. These folks are scary as hell and if they become a mob with leadership in the Presidency they could be very threatening to minorities and for the stability of this country.

I don't expect it to happen but it troubles me to see the seeds being planted and starting to take root. You never know and history tends to repeat itself. I think the guy screaming all Muslims are terrorists in the Virginia town meeting could become a lot more common. If a lot of these folks had there way they would be all for another Holocaust, not just for Muslims but any minority, non-religious etc. etc.

I hope I don't seem paranoid but it just hit me today that what Trump was up to was calculated and coming from a place of pure evil. Never in my life did I ever expect to see a major candidate who is leading in the polls say such a repulsive thing.

Clinton, Bipartisan Senators Push for New War Powers Against ISIS


Snip>

Despite the recent failure of the United States' Syrian rebel training program, Hillary Clinton called for more elite U.S. forces to train moderate rebels, and joined a group of bipartisan senators calling for new military authorization in the war against ISIS.

Snip> Indicating support for arming Sunni and Kurdish fighters, Clinton said that “Baghdad needs to accept, even embrace, arming Sunni and Kurdish forces in the war against ISIS. But if Baghdad won’t do that, the coalition should do so directly.”

“One thing that I believe we haven’t done yet is make it clear to Baghdad that we are going to be arming Sunni tribes and Kurds if they don’t, because at some point, they have to be in the fight,” she later remarked

HOW TO GET A BAD COP FIRED

Wow!

Which Republican candidate do you despise the most?


I have to say that this year is one hell of a crop of fucking idiotic, kookoo for cocoa puffs, dangerous, deranged, dick heads and it sure is hard to chose who creeps me out the most. I guess I would have to say Cruz but Huckabee, Trump and Carson are all right there with him. These guys are like satirical characters from the 70's and 80's only much worse. They make Archie Bunker look somewhat sane. It's sad to see how far our Country has fallen over the years when bigoted sitcom characters from the past are now mainstream, real people and running for fucking president!!!!

Chris Rock - There's a new app which tells you which of your friends is racist


It's called Facebook



I originally attributed the quote to John Fugelsang but it looks like it came from Chris Rock during the Ferguson riots.
