Some of the comments on yesterday's post were dumb but there were a few bright spots and people thinking beyond the headlines. That was good to see and that kind of conversation didn't really happen anywhere else with a local angle. May not agree with some of the more hardliner readers but some of them have a point.

See Through The Narrative said...

Is anyone else noticing that whenever a Muslim or "person of color" murders several people, the (((Media))) has an immediate "Fear Of Anti-Muslim Backlash". So far, no one in the (((Media))) seems concerned about anti-white rhetoric, but then again, the (((Media))) is chock-full of anti-white narratives.

"Media" is the plural of "medium," no matter how many parentheses you use, (((idiot.)))

Triple parenthesis denotes "Jewish". Welcome to the year 2019.

@12:51, because nobody gives a shit what happens in Nigeria, but New Zealand is a civilized country!

And there aren't an "Christians" being killed, just one tribe of Blacks butchering another, samey-samey for a hundred thousand years in that festering shithole.

12:17: We KNOW what triple parentheses mean. What we don't know is why you deem it necessary to hide your antisemitism behind parentheses. Why not just use swastikas like your hero did?

What the hell are Moslems doin in new zealand anyway? Was it the best deal they could get , its like me going to saudi Arabia or libya if i got govt bux to move a world away. Do muslims have any shame that everyone hates their behaviors? Even the buddhists in Myanmar are shooting them.

Trump is a white dictator wannabe nationalist, racist, elitist.

1:27 is ignorant and proud of it. I wonder why his ancestors came to this continent. I don't doubt the indigenous people hated their "behaviors," especially the incest and bestiality.
