    I would have thought buses kill more people, less than one a day in a country of 300m, well done bus drivers

    Out of date data is out of date, and irrelevant. It's no coincidence that you're using data that cuts off in 2011/12

    You'll also find over half Americans own guns and all but a handful are capable of falling out of beds, on the other hand Islamist immigrants are very rare, and even if we boost it to all Islamic immigrants or all Muslims the story really changes in per capita terms

    Lol,right wingers will keep silent unless it's a Muslim.
    And left wingers seem to (generally) keep silent if it IS a muslim. I don't think we can start arguing that EITHER approach of those approaches to this is good. They're two sides of the same coin.

    Being "white" does not make a person a white supremacist. It isn't comparable to expecting Muslims to condemn terrorism, because all Muslims are expected to have a positive opinion of Muhammad and follow the teachings of the qur'an - an individual and a book that promoted Islamic imperialism and terrorism.
    Quite. If people were asking people with brown skin, or people from majority muslim countries to condemn/appologise for the actions of an islamic terrorist then it would perhaps be correct ot say that the comparable version of that in this instance would be to have white people condemn and appologise for this action ... that's not what happens though.

    I've already tried this but it seems to be too difficult a concept to grasp

    Farage, Le Pen and Trump were directly responsible for this.

    UKIPpers and Trump supporters, shame on you all.

    Your hatred and vitriol is causing a slow descent into civil war.

    This was a far-right French Canadian, and the far-right in Quebec is deeply linked with the far-right in France. The far-right leader in France is a top candidate for the presidency.

    We need an alt-left to organise the dissent against these fascists who are usurping the West. A peoples' uprising against the white supremacists who seek to massacre and deport blacks and muslims. To defend the weak, and those who do not conform to the fascists' antiquated views on gender, sexuality, and everything else.

    In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE To Accept a Fascist West!

    Millions of people around the world are filled with deep anxiety, fear, and disgust. Our anguish is right and just. Our anger must now become massive resistance – before the fascists across Europe gain power.

    Should we fail to rise with determination and daring in our millions now to stop this, the consequences for humanity will be disastrous. We, the peoples' defenders, know in the depths of our beings, the catastrophe that will befall the people of the world should the fascist regimes assume full power.

    Our resistance must spread rapidly to every sphere and every corner of the country. Because we refuse to accept a fascist Europe, millions must rise up in a resistance with a deep determination such that we create a political crisis that prevents the fascist regimes from gaining the governance of society.

    Fascism foments and relies on xenophobic nationalism, racism, misogyny, and the aggressive re-institution of oppressive “traditional values.” Fascism feeds on and encourages the threat and use of violence to build a movement and come to power. Fascism, once in power, essentially eliminates traditional democratic rights. Fascism attacks, jails, even executes its opponents, and launches violent mob attacks on “minorities.” In Nazi Germany in the 1930s and ’40s, fascism did all these things. This is where this can go. And yes, Hitler himself could “talk graciously” when he felt it would serve his interests and lull his opponents.

    If you work with fascists you normalize the road to horror. You cannot try to “wait things out.” Those who lived through Nazi Germany and sat on the sidelines, looking on as Hitler demonized, criminalized, and eventually rounded up one group after another, became shameful collaborators with monstrous crimes. Don’t Conciliate… Don’t Accommodate… Don’t Collaborate!

    This is not wishful thinking but could be made a reality if all who hate what is represented by these fascists translate our outrage into massive mobilization to create the political conditions which make this possible. We are millions.

    We call on each and every one who opposes what these fascists stand for, and what it will do, to take part in and actively build, this resistance and refusal. Organize. Plan. Act.
    unfortunatley your rant misses the biggest issue - le pen, trump and farrage were all relatively unknown and inconsequential in politics a decade ago and it has been the elevated influence in global politics of islamist ideology and its rampant expansion throughout islamic communities that has led tot he rise of all right wing politics. now the left half of the political spectrums moral teachings are unfortuantley falling on deaf ears when it is witnessed that the islamic communities are getting worse and doig little to adres their home grown issues that eventually fuel terrorism.
    muslis on tsr would rather jump all over the ( albeit tragic and focus worthy) far right incident than the 10 or 20 times as many islamist attacks globally in the same month. herein lies the core of the issue and why the far right make gains where a decade ago , the suggestion would have been laugable
