No it's not the same at all. TR and this guy down under are sharing extreme views of the world without knowing each other and the truck driving mass killer is sharing extreme views with ISIS leaders encouraging such behaviour.

The key is extreme.

Fred West probably read Brer Rabbit when he was a boy. That doesn't make other Brer Rabbit fans potential sexual torturers.
But if he and Rosemary both had posters of the Moors Murderers on their bedroom walls then one might have a better case for linking their extreme behaviours.

I'm as concerned as the next man, but I don't feel the need to try and get my little bit of the spotlight, what you and your friends are doing is saying 'this is really sad and all, but don't forget about me' which is ****ing pathetic.

No, the key is hypocricy.. Robinson has publicly condemned the attack, yet that means nothing to you. When there's an ISIS attack, leading Muslims' condemnation is met with cynicism from right wingers and they are roundly condemned as tarring all Muslims with the same brush.

You can't have it both ways.

It's good that he condemns it. But the point being discussed wasn't whether he's in favour of what the guy did but that that they both have extreme views in common as illustrated by those tweets telling Muslims to "**** off out of the country" for being nothing more than muslim.

Not exactly tolerant and quite akin to encouraging fear or get out of "our" country as espoused by the shooter.

Certainly not making our Tommy out to be an angel, but how long ago were those tweets? I'd be very surprised if they're from his post EDL days, and before you say once a racist always a racist, bear in mind that your beloved DLD admitted to the odd paki joke as a youngster.

I have no idea. You appear to be the expert on "your" Tommy. Who is DLD?

I think we need a sense of perspective, and return to topic.

However many were killed in NZ it was a one off and would be considered an good mornings work by Shamimas lot.

There is no comparison as far as the numbers are concerned.

Well at least we can agree on something. Why would I ask questions about someone I'm an expert on? Not much of an expert am I?

Rescue parties usually avoid Customs/Immigration officials or at least give false names and a false story as to why they are in X country. I am guessing the SBS/SAS haven't been canvassed yet to see if a rescue operation is feasible.

Can't have been of much concern as BBC world didn't even mention it. There hasn't been any news another than Christchurch attack for some days. What is the point of giving either side such a media platform?
But for the press Shamima could have continued her happy life in the caliphate and NZ wouldn't have a copycat.

Graun had it, the far left vs the far right always confuses me, they seem to have a lot in common.

I'd mention the 20 Christians killed in a cathederal attack in the Philipines if I were you. Else someone who thinks like you will assume that you don't give a shit.

Unlike you I don,t differentiate between those who hold views that have no place in a civilsed society, be they Muslim extremists, so called budddhists in Myamnar, Hindus , right-wing nutters, christan fundamentalists or those who inspire them..

Unlike you to let something go completely over your head Next time someone mentions a couple of Islamic attacks, let's see what your response is.
