    The facts tend to come out pretty quickly in those cases because the police have been aware of the suspect for some time. Also, Orientalist is not a word the way you're using it. And the Middle East is not the Orient.

    Anyway it's a question of scale. This whole "well of course it's white guys" routine makes no sense because it's pretty uncommon for it to be white Christian dudebros compared to the prevalence of Muslims doing exactly what their book tells them to every day worldwide.
    That word could refer to the Middle East,do some research.

    Nah,it's because it suits your islamophobic agenda. Anyway,any person with common sense should already know this is a terrorist attack,those making excuses aren't most likely white supremacists themselves,not my business.

    Okay,white supremacists are Innocents and we shouldn't really be worried about their white supremacists terrorist actions but instead focus it all on brown people who are the real threat blah blah blah,is this sufficient enough?

    Ok, that's one. From 25 years ago.

    The absolute world leaders in blowing up or shooting up mosques are Islamic extremists. Just in 2016, half a dozen mosques in Afghanistan alone were shot up or blown up with the deaths of over 100 people. That's just one country in one year.

    If they did this every time a mosque got blowed up or shot up, there would be nothing else on facebook.

    Don't worry though, in Trudeau's Canada, there will be some kind of bleeding heart nonsense happening very soon.

    I don't see why the liberal left are all over this yet remain silent when we suffer terrorist attacks at the hands of radical Islam.
    Yeah, but both sides are guilty of this sort of hypocrisy, I don't see much about the fact he was a Trump or Le Pen supporter on Breitbart, when of course if he was Muslim they'd be all over his support of ISIS, and it was the same with the murderer of Jo Cox, they focused entirely on his mental illness and swept the fact he was clearly influenced by an ideology just like any ISIS terrorist under the carpet.

    Oh ffs.

    Every time a white guy commits an act of terror the response is 'he's mentally ill'.

    Clearly these people were targeted for being Muslim. It's an undisputed act of terrorism.
    I'd be surprised if anyone committing a mass killing on the grounds of ideology wasn't "mentally ill" to some degree.

    However, if the perpetrator has made ideological statements that relate to the attack, it is terrorism. Regardless of the ideology, race or nationality.

    So why isn't this classed as terrorism?
    I'm sure that it is/will be.
    This is a regular complaint from some quarters. I saw one recently claiming that Dylann Roof was not referred to as a terrorist by media and not prosecuted as a terrorist. A 30 second google was enough to completely debunk the claim.

    A Canadian killing Canadians in Canada.

    And you're blaming Trump.

    Just how.
    He seems to have been influenced and empowered by a foreign ideology that is against the liberal values of Canadian society. It is only fitting the Canadian government intervenes in the flow of people coming from these hate preaching countries with a blanket ban.

    Where are all the white supremacists who are supposed to speak up and condemn this?
    They needn't to apologise on behalf of this guy or speak up against it.
    People who support him or agree with his actions will not condemn him. It is something we see quite regularly.

    BTW, there is a huge difference between "condemning" an act and "apologising" for it, and the former does not imply or require the latter.

    This might be difficult to comprehend (I understand many things are) but if you're killing a **** load of people for no reason you're already mentally unsound. It then becomes a question of what your pretext was.

    Whilst you are correct, it's the attitued of the person you replied to that makes people who are mentally ill fear speaking out. They get associated with acts like this.

    I know that and either one should be done right now by his people. Only fair seeing as this is constantly imposed on minorities

    I agree. Anyone who commits mass murder is mentally ill, but that doesn't stop it being terrorism.

    Religion is what unites such white supremacist organisations,they hide behind a 'Christian identity'.
    Are there any passages in the Bible that explicitly call for the domination of non-whites by whites?
    If there are, then White Supremacism is indeed a religious ideology comparable to Islam.
    If there aren't, it isn't.

    I don't know why you're trying your hardest to asslick white supremacy today.

    Breitbart and ISIS aren't really comparable though, are they? One's a news website and one's a terrorist organisation.
