Horror in Charleston, South Carolina

White man kills 9 in a historic black church, and is still on the loose.

Prayers for the the repose of the souls of the victims, and for their families and friends. Also, a special prayer that the killer be caught and brought to justice ASAP.

Already the politicization is happening. Oh dear, America, your politicians and ideologues are destroying you. I am reminded of the 1st century BC in the Roman Empire.

With all the aliens flooding across the border, it's probably more like the fifth century AD.

But, yeah, the cultural and political rot are well advanced.

Paco, I reckon you get a close up view of the rot daily.

It's an outrage against innocence and we're going to hear a lot about racism, but to me it's also an outrage against sacred ground. We've got to get back to respecting a church as a place of refuge and neutrality. The young must be taught that, by force if necessary I think. There's no other way.

He was caught in North Carolina. Name: Dylann Storm Roof. WTF?

Apparently he's white and said he wanted to kill blacks. What a swine he is.

Taking a person of another race's dignity - racism.

Taking a person of another race's life - evil.

"...this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency."

BS! It happens all the time in China:

- And dozens more.
Except they use explosives - which they invented. And it has an ancient provenance in East and SE Asia:

It does happen in certain cultures more than others, but is spread in various places across the world, east and west.

"advanced countries"?

How about Switzerland?

I remember about 4 years ago a Swiss guy blew himself and his house up after an argument with his neighbours.
What is weird is how the Euros have to keep saying 'it's rare' 'normally peaceful' etc, all the time, when that is simply not true. This whole 'it only happens in America' thing is some sort of scam, aided by BBC journalists, not backed up by any facts. Some sort of huge denial going on, that it is actually a widespread human problem.

It's denial and misdirection, bruce. The Euroweenies consider themselves civilized and above matters.

But the Europeans know better.
