The stupidity. I'd say it's unbelieveable, but sadly it's not. Apparently flying-while-Arab is the new walking-while-Black. And this, this is just beyond appalling. Even for the New York Post. Fuckers.

Post-racist society indeed.

Yeah, i read an article about it that made the comment that the only way that story would make it to the front page of most newspapers is if the abortionists were using "assualt weapons" to carry out the "procedure"

Well, just when I thought UKIP couldn't get any worse.

http://www.gravesendreporter.co.uk/n...K04lQ.facebook

What horrible, sexist, racist, homophobic, xenophobic party they are. Makes me ashamed that they were actually voted in my county.

Ugrh, UKIP (or at least one of their candidates) seem to hit a new low every week.

Not that I trust parties that call themselves anti-authoritarian and ask for authority on those grounds anyway...

People forming angry mobs over politics tends to annoy me...but the head of UKIP really should have known better than to appear openly in Edinburgh.

Maybe him and Nick Griffin could start a club.

What. The. Shit?!

This seems like it's probably the most appropriate thread, although 'politics' isn't exactly synonymous with 'gooseshit crazy decapitation-man'.

So fucking weird. People were just, like, standing there filming him and talking to him. WHILE HIS HANDS ARE COVERED IN THE BLOOD OF HIS VICTIM.

WHUT?

Jesus people, not expecting you to go Batman on the guy or anything, just like, I dunno... throw a bagel at him. Or something.

Come on.

Actually, several people did confront him.

Let's be honest; if you saw a guy with a bloody knife standing in front of a corpse, what would you assume it was; a terrorist attack, or a bunch of hipsters in search of YT fame?

When you say 'confront', you actually mean 'stand kinda near him and shout stuff like "hey man, that's pretty uncool'". Not that I'm claiming to be the Punisher or anything. Actually no, wait, that's exactly what I'm claiming.

And I'd probably assume it was just a good old fashioned brutal murder. Definitely not YouTube hipsters. Y'know, with the whole corpse thing going on.

Regardless, the whole thing is pretty depressing.

Well, it's pretty easy to dress someone up as a corpse. To be honest, before yesterday, the idea that someone might brutally murder someone then stand around interacting relatively calmly with everyone around them seemed laughable. I'd defiantly have assumed it was just a realistic dummy or a confederate wearing makeup/fake blood.

It seems kind of ludicrous to believe it's anything not real --- had I been there, I would have likely shat myself and fled.

I can't stand up to someone armed --- and I don't get the instinct of people to whip out their iPhone and start filming/snapping shots. What's the motivation?
