The men are not Canadians.
Al Qaeda in Iran? That seems strange because AlQaeda is sunni and Iran definitely shi'ite.

That's a pretty baseless call. You don't have to be racist to favour a strict immigration policy and oppose fundamentalist Islam.

As you can see from abraxas' post, he has deluded himself into a belief that if you call something right wing, then by definition it follows that it is also racist.
But at least he had the honesty to admit it is as he sees it, not necessarily based in logic.

For instance, all the anti-semitism of the Chavez government would not be classed as racism, because Chavez was not white.

That is being discussed quite a bit. I am not clear on the details but I assume that there are Al Qaeda operatives in Iran. It is not the Iranian government that was mentioned, but just that the directions and guidance was coming out of the country of Iran.

Al Qaeda are a bunch of sick fucks who have taken religion hostage and use it to promote their anarchy, they are no different to Stalin. Islamist a religion of over a billion, I'd be surprised if al Qaeda makes up 100 000, that's less than 1% and so it really is a cult. If it ever gained any popularity it would have been because of American imperialism and mass killing in those petroleum wars.

When atheist Stalin was killing millions in the gulags just as china do today, they had mass support, and a populace that thought it was the right thing to do.

You know what pisses me off, if someone dumb fuck blows myself up, a suicide bomber. Some smart ass says to a Muslim friend of mine, " we'll it's your religion, you need to sort it out"

1. Thanks for lumping 1 billion different people together based on 1 single thing we share

2. If you're Caucasian and someone walks unto you and says, Charles Manson was a white like you, you need to sort that shit out... What would you say to them?

I would say that it's already sorted and add that neither of us chose to be white.

Ignore people like Har-Tru. They're convinced they're fighting the "good fight." I try to be sympathetic to these types because it's always possible that something bad happened to them at some point, perhaps by a family member, or a "priest," etc. Often times people make the mistake of indicted God as well based on the hypocrisy or misbehaviour of the so-called "faithful." It's the only possible explanation for such a caustic and bitter attitude. There are many ways to improve one's attitude though such as building houses for the poor (habitat for humanity), or volunteering in a soup kitchen. Our personal resources, time and energy is finite, and we must chose our battles carefully and focus on the things in life which really need to be changed. Misguided causes are always sad and unfortunate. His is one of them.

I overheard a schoolmate saying "I saw the bomber's Youtube page, it's full of Islam and terrorism and stuff!" Had to resist quite a few urges there.

Religion can be used for good and it can be used for evil. At least, have some respect for something that people hold dear to their hearts. It's possible to speak against aspects of religion without being hateful.
Great post.

You know that's total bollocks. There are many right wing users on this board, you being a prominent one, and from the top of my head the only users I have called on their obvious racism are Har Tru and Tommy Vercetti.

Then again, I'm not the one who justifies the usage of racist slurs like "wetback" but I believe you do it more because you like to troll rather than because you hold a racist agenda. I hope I'm not wrong.
