Given the circumstances (victims are all Asian and it took place on a major Chinese holiday) I’d say this would have been a hate crime but so far it doesn’t seem like it.
Shooter has been confirmed to be Asian too, and it doesn’t seem to be racially/politically charged afaik.

Update: Police have found a van that appears to be long to the suspect. Police have him surrounded and are currently in a standoff.
No updates on if they have been arrested yet afaik

You spend 8 years trying to tell people that shit is slowly getting more and more extreme, try to point out the hypocrisy of the people who yell about free speech actively cheering when books are banned or when people they dont like get their free speech blocked, and only get called a cuck, SJW, or soyboy in response.
And then barely any people actually getting it through their thick skulls whats happening when the status quo warriors flat out say the cruelty is the point.
You’d be a bit jaded too.

Another 6 documents were found at Biden’s residence. Making this the… third? Fourth time this happened and around 20 documents or so total?
Good on him and his administration for continuing to cooperate so they can find these things, but it still keeps happening.

To be fair, it has been pointed out that this is more of a problem with the system itself than any sort of malice or criminality on Biden’s part.
Adds Scott Amey, general counsel for the Project on Government Oversight, “I’d bet you that if they go back to all of the living presidents and root through their homes and their libraries and their warehouses and garages, they’re going to unearth some classified documents there.”

Lord of the Rings provides some good context here.
Recall the saying that all it takes for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing.
And also remember that Fangorn Forest got mulched because the ents chose neutrality in the face of all encompassing evil. And only after they were personally harmed did they deign to do something about it.
There is no such thing as neutrality when the choice is between opposing evil or ignoring it.

I would. And I am, though perhaps somewhat less. This sort of thing is happening not only in US. But I still think it’s important to stay calm and rational. Exaggeration detracts from the statements you are making. There’s still a lot of undecided or easily swayed people, but if we seem unreasonable, they won’t listen. Even I cringed at the hyperbole, despite agreeing with you. (I assume you were that BP.) People who are undecided would react even more negatively.

Pro-Trump Candidate Calls for Executing Parents of LGBTQ+ Kids
Oh and here’s a post by Elijah Schafer, popular right wing commentator, posting a meme about killing trans kids
I repeat again: I am not denying that it’s happening, because it is. There’s a scary amount of extremists talking about killing minorities, especially LGBT people.
I am not denying the fact that these bigots are mostly right-wing. And I’m not saying that there’s only a few of them. There’s way too much.
The only thing that I was saying is that accusing all right-wing or even just right-leaning people of doing this, is wrong. It’s like accusing all even slightly left-leaning people of being TERFs just because some of them are. Or accusing all Ukrainians of being neo-Nazis just because some of them are.

“Help the oppressed and the oppressor”
“I understand about helping the oppressed but wdym by helping the oppressor?!”
“By stopping him (from oppressing others)”
–convo between a man and his companion in a desert ca. VII century CE
“If you see oppression, stop it with your hand. If you don’t have the ability, then with speech (in all of its form) and if that isn’t even possible, then with your heart (by disapproving it)”
–same man, same desert, same time period.
However, be tactful about it in practice. Don’t just start throwing hands. Unless you’re a character in a TVseries/movies/comic/manga/novel/vidya game in which case go for it.

I think I kicked the hornets nest on another forum for going after Germany’s unwillingness to send tanks to Ukraine.
Was bombarded by a wave of “Well ackshually!!!” responses ranging from “Russia will nuke Germany” to “they’re being ‘tactical’” followed by many, many downvotes.

Remember when Obama said people just need to “out-organize” voter suppression?
Just ignore the millions of people who can’t organize because of disabilities, lack of access to transportation, or just don’t have the time or money to organize for their political party.

there is a few reasons America isn’t all in yet.
>it’s not profitable (you can stop reading here if you choose)
>there is no urgency, we know it’s going to be shock and awe
>It would be histories biggest disregard for human life since Christianity, much of our country might dissent, and the world will be terrified of us.
it’s the people who are scared of mutually assured destruction, the apprehension of the common man, combined with lack of profit or urgency is why we sleep. Russia is scared and broke, which is why they’re doing silly shit instead of outright action.
A nuclear bomb is a crude device, it’s a tube that joins two glowing rocks. A child could make a schematic for one. Getting that device into our air space is the impossible task. Our technological capabilities are godlike compared to them, if there was any urgency that destitute country huddling over a pile of uranium would be a glass parking lot. America will use its Jewish Space Laser to etch ‘Made in America’ on the glass crater that is Russia.

Because there was no violence in the world before Christianity. I’m well aware that people have done atrocities in the name of religion (not just Christianity), but it’s BS to claim that Christianity is all about disregarding human life (especially when the bible is about being decent to other people, including non-believers).

Yeah you’re right, that’s just some stupid shit i sprinkle in.
My point would probally be stronger if I didn’t blur the line between jokes and facts so much. it’s not even a good joke, it’s kinda just shitty. the jewish space laser thing was funnier.
My bad. I forget how many decent people I can offend by choosing arbitrary targets to shit on.
Christianity doesn’t propagate a disregard for human life. Some people with such disregard just like to use stuff like religion to propagate their shitty behavior.
Sorry.

I got to be tripping balls on acid to even vaguely forget that morality is the cornerstone in which most common folk interact religion.
Not all christians are Joel Olsteen or homophobic cultist. Most religious folk use religion as a tool for understanding our inborn morality, and simply are not too critical of their faith, because it isn’t broken for their intents and purposes.

Latest I heard is that his ex-wife (div. 2005) has commented on the shooting. She said he was quick to anger.
That combined with the fact most of the people he shot appear to be over 50 makes me think this could have been a personal grievance with one or more families, or possibly his own family.
