It is difficult for many to have any sympathy for a group of people who are little more than butchers and barbarians and continue to hold hostages and end their lives in the most despicable ways. Muslims themselves need to clean up their own radicals before they will get much sympathy from a huge majority of the worlds population.

The story was widely publicized... but will not have "legs" because the accused perp isn't either a "known" Christian, Republican or TEA Party member. It doesn't fit the narrative so it will be tossed.

Yeah the perp was an avowed atheist that hated religion. Ironically, I bet he thinks the world would be so much better and peaceful without followers of bronze age mystics.
Now had some bible church kid, tea party type, republican done this there would be wall to wall coverage and analysis.
This killing was senseless and will only enflame matters worst.

From the coverage I've seen today, it appears this guy was just a basic ass who made the lives of all who encountered him miserable. It doesn't appear that he targeted his muslim neighbours specifically. And yes - without a hard anti-muslim angle to go on, this story is unlikely to gain any traction.

I don't know what the "activists" or that cartoon is talking about.The crime was splashed all over the MSM that I check daily. I learned about when I first got into work today from the NY Daily News, about as MSM as it gets.

But just to add, if I were a member of the MSM I would find the cartoon really quite offensive because it is simply not the truth... not in the least. The crime made headlines in MSM news.

Neighbor killed 3 members of Muslim family near UNC-Chapel Hill campus over parking dispute, police say; murders spark '#MuslimLivesMatter' hashtag

It seems he may have been an atheist activist/terrorist, although truth be told he was probably just some whack-job.

Sorry SINC but IMO that post is very misplaced when it comes to the crime that was committed.

Like all groups of any affiliation, Muslims are not a homogeneous group of people.

These 3 young people didn't deserve to die over a dispute over a parking spot and so yes I do have sympathy for them, their family and friends.

ISIS/ISL does not represent, in any way, all of Islam. They are a sect and one that is barbarously killing their own. They murdered/burned alive First Lieutenant Muadh al-Kasasbeh a pilot in the Jordanian Air Force. He was a Muslim and Jordan (an Islamic country) is outraged.

So please do not lump all Muslims into the likes of ISIS/ISIL becuase It simply is not the case.

Quite frankly I don't even know why you would go there in your post.

Quite frankly, I went there because it IS the truth. Read it again. Not my viewpoint, but an observation of how a majority of people world wide are reacting to any Muslim these days, righty or wrongly.

I listen to this and have been for months now wherever I go. Coffee shops, restaurants, neighbourhood pubs, grocery store lines. The viewpoint and in some cases outright hatred is loud and clear, all sparked by ISIS. Add to that dozens of anti Muslim emails that fill my inbox from people from all walks of life. You must live a sheltered life if you don't hear it because it is real and frightening.

Crap! It looks like we're back to "everything liberal is awesome" news exclusivity in Canada. Turned on the TV this morning only to find out Sun News is gone. It's too bad but I'm sure lefties are celebrating the silencing of opposing views in Canada.

With a maximum audience of 10,000 viewers nationwide, it couldn't go on much longer.
