The difference in how this has been reported is amazing

And yet not at all surprising

Can we have a big GH think tank on how to stop the radicalisation of islamophobia?

The guy was white attacking muzzies. Nothing to see here, move along.

Doesn't attract the clicks... or outrage

Just reading the paper ..... and I'd say that is precisely what is happening right now.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Reading Vice news article on the attack and **** it's disgusting just how many are justifying it and hoping it happens more, paraphrasing the politician who said terrorism is part and parcel of living in the city and how we've got to get used to it, now it's turned into this type of attack is part and parcel of living in London and Muslims have to get used to it, the amount of hate is disturbing :nooo

More cheap attempts at point scoring mate?

You're intelligent to understand you can hate an idea but not the people.


"You can't be a bigot against an ideology.
Bigotry is against people, not ideas. If an idea can't stand up to scrutiny, logic, or reason, it shouldn't be upheld at all."
