Want to bet the perpetrators were NOT Muslims? This is because everyone knows the "peaceful" religion has never played the terrorist card. They love freedom and equality of women. And unless the media has them on film planting bombs--they get a pass! HA HA!

Oh, kindly take your own hateful pre-judgment and stick a big old tube sock in it. Your post is worthy only of the caricature in it -- except THEY aren't real, and you are.

Fact is, you don't know who did it, and I don't know who did it. Much of the early information in these incidents is ALways wrong. Remember how Oklahoma City was Middle Eastern terrorists? How Richard Jewell planted the Atlanta bomb? How there were several unexploded bombs elsewhere on the course yesterday?

Folks with opinions worth heeding withhold judgment until the smoke clears. Hateful jerks chime-in with their premature enunciations, based on nothing but fear and bigotry.

Keep listening to Fox Noise Darrien. I'm sure Shun O'Sannity will get it right eventually.
Personally, listening to any of the mindless, gibbering network talking heads try to "analyze" anything causes my brain cells to melt.
