Terrorists Attack!

They’ve wounded 5 people in an Illinois mall:

A large explosion has blown the top off a shopping plaza in Waukegan, Illinois. Police say at least six people have been taken to a hospital.

The explosion struck around lunchtime Thursday. It blew the windows out of storefronts and collapsed the ceilings above stores.

Witness Candi Rixie was taking orders at a sandwich shop a block away. She said she felt a rumble, almost like somebody hit the building with a car.

It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the blast, but crews from People’s Gas were on the scene to investigate.

I’m guessing they won’t find that it was terrorism, because that would make Barack Mohammed Hussein Osama look bad. But that doesn’t change the fact that malls are known terror targets, and that Illinois is a leftist state chock-full of Muslim extremists. Don’t believe the hype. This is terrorism, pure and simple. The only question is, what are the American people going to do about attacks like this? Continue to let the Democrats cover them up? Or throw the bums out, and execute a few of the bad guys, to show the rest of them that actions have consequences, so maybe they should think twice before attacking our malls?

The choice is clear, people. Destroy terrorism. Vote Republican.

  1. It is a shame that the demorats have been aiding the terrorists in their attacks on our great country. I agree that we should execute a few of them to show what happens to traitors.

    We also need to find these people who would attack our holiest sites and send them to hell without most of their fingers, toes and skin. That will make them think twice!

  2. We should wrap their dead in pigskins, too. That way their souls will never make it to their phony Paradise. If we start wrapping the swine up in swine carcasses, we’ll have fewer swine to kill in future.

  3. Police say at least six people have been taken to a hospital.

    And you say 5 were wounded? Astoundingly stupid.

    I’m guessing they won’t find that it was terrorism, because that would make Barack Mohammed Hussein Osama look bad.

    You do know that he’s half white, right? Or is that just not good enough for your cult?

    Destroy terrorism. Vote Republican.

    Obvious oxymoron is obvious.

    It is a shame that the demorats have been aiding the terrorists in their attacks on our great country.

    How is democracy relevant to this incident? Getting desperate with your insults since your candidate hopeful sucks, eh? How childish.

    I agree that we should execute a few of them to show what happens to traitors.

    “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.” – Text from the Eighth Amendment of the United States constitution.
    You lose.

    We also need to find these people who would attack our holiest sites…

    A mall is your holiest site? What a greedy bastard you are. You are a waste of life.

    We should wrap their dead in pigskins, too. That way their souls will never make it to their phony Paradise. If we start wrapping the swine up in swine carcasses, we’ll have fewer swine to kill in future.

    Please, keep your fetish to yourself. I just lost my lunch.

  4. Given that they sent a gas company to investigate, I’d guess the cause was GAS.
    If terrorists wanted to attack, I’m pretty sure they’d choose a better target than Illinois

    “because that would make Barack Mohammed Hussein Osama look bad.”
    How? It’s the Governor’s job to keep the state safe, not the senator.

    Still preaching genocide, especially when it comes to children and babies? Hey, if a preacher had been killed, you’d still wrap them in pigskin? Blasphemer. Whoremongerer. Heathen. Baby rapist. Fascist Scientologist.

  7. It’s understandable that your infintile mind jumped so expiditiously toward terrorism, but let’s not forget, my mildly thick friend, that every conclusion you blindly leap of faith to, is an interpretation of the world you so distortedly view, a majority of which I cannot find in my heart to even blame on you as it is an agenda set by an extraction of what causes fear in the pathetic closed minds of the average american citizen such as yourself. Furthermore, I find it appauling that you would make such comments about a presidential candidate, a comment that sounds identical to the watermark of the McCain smear campaign. I defy you to open your mind and attempt to reach your own conclusions, not watered down by media or political agendas. As you are upon the exodus of Such an ambiguous task, I commend you on your forthcoming trials as a freethinker, and as a mover. Godspeed, my son.

    Let’s face it LibRETARDS, you know what the score is; a little over a year of Democratic control of Congress and America is overrun by terrorists. So much for your “let’s hold hands and sing Kumbah tactics”. We need a Republican sweep next Novembers to undo the damage.

    Funny, we haven’t had any terrorist attacks since 9/11(the LAX airport shooting was unconnected, and Anthrax was home-brewed). ConservaTARD(ConserFAGGOT?).

    Hey, remember how Bush turned an awful lot of the world against us? And then for all that “Axis of Evil” chatter, Bush ended up licking Kim Jong-Il’s crotch?

  14. Hi there folks. No, I’m not back again. Joanne nagged me into checking out a couple overly ignorant comments on another page because she was having too hard of a time handling all that laughter by herself, so she practically shoved my face into the computer to make me look. So I looked, then i joined her in the ROFLMAO thing. I wont say whose comments they were, I’d guess that most of you can figure that out without much thinking.
    So I decided that I hadn’t properly finished with everyone yet. Why not pick a random post and just give each of my favorite little idiots a nice long thorough ass reaming, so I land on this page. Poor choice.

    The topic itself is too stupid to bother trying to discredit. It’s already been discredited simply by being a lie posted while the facts are still fresh in our minds. Believe me the terrorists didn’t convince all of the witnesses to not give them away. The gas folks were there because it was a gas explosion, caused by a gas leak. These things happen on a very regular basis, you just don’t hear about them unless they happen in a public area and people are hurt. Even then you still hear of several of them a year if you pay attention to the news. PROTIP: Terrorists use bombs, not faulty gas pipes.

    Next, my only two targets on this page turned out to be Sisy and Marty.(probably more by now, it took a while to write this between naps) Again, poor choice.

    Sisy wrote the post, so he has already insulted himself must better than I could.

    Marty is a waste of space in every sense of the word. Why even bother with him. He will still be ranting death and destruction to all from his wheelchair in the nursing home till the die he dies. His last words will be “kill the li-li-lib…….” and some poor misguided but well meaning person will try to satisfy his dying wish and go kill a librarian.

    But then there are still all of those wonderful insults I wanted to use.
    Nazi: naa, overused, and then there’s that Godwins law thing.
    Racist: Nope, a whole deck full of that card is played daily.
    Pedophile: Also overused and in all the wrong places.
    Troll: Troll troll troll. Every page says troll troll troll.
    Fascist, bigot, moron, idiot, heathen, liar, sinner, scum, ass, stupid, crazy, insane, childish, baby, whiner: all overused already.

    How about finding a whole new way to use the insults, put the insults in the wrong place so they may fit in one place, but not where I put it, that would different at least.
    Oops, Corker has a patent on that strategy, even if he himself is unaware of it.

    Is anyone else yawning yet? Don’t answer that, I’ll be asleep before it gets posted anyway.

    The posts have gone downhill from blantantly hilarious (Heliocentrism, Platypus, Penguins) to less than mildly amusing. (place random post name here, they have been too uninteresting to remember their topics)
    And the comments have gotten so predictable that you know what everyone is going to say before they say it. Bobby will say kill someone, to which Marty will say kill everyone, to which Sisy will praise them both on their insight, to which EB will try to interject a little bit of truth while Spacebro points out how stupid they are (more truth) and PG does a bit of background work and verifies that, yes, it’s true, they really are morons. Then Marty interferes with another suggestion on how to kill or torture someone, and Bobby explains how he does it (as if he really did) and MoXoM tries to sneak in a song, Mod deletes it. L enters with her own way of telling the truth while insulting them without actually using insults, (I like L, the sweet and sour combination). EB comes back with more info, this time well researched and verifiable, EDNOTE pokes a note in EB’s comment telling him his sources are moonbat commies. Diablo shows up playing his part, self centered, indignant at being reminded of his lack of any real mental ability, so he enters a long post hoping its length is enough to make it seem smart. It doesn’t work, Dio lets him know he just made a fool of himself, Sisy jumps in and tries to save him by telling you Diablo was right, deal with it, Spacebro spits the truth right back at Sisy, Psycheout intervenes with a threat to ban Spacebro. From out of the blue FadedRose pops in and berates Corker, then Marty, and makes it clear that she hates them because they hate women. Then she posts again on topic and correct, EB agrees and adds some more correct info, PG posts a long one pointing out Sisy’s mistakes, Arn comes in and slams Corker and Marty for being insane wannabe terrorists, then adds his own info to the other info supplied by EB, PG, Dio, etc.

    Is anybody else getting as bored as I am yet?

    I think the next time Joanne tries to shove one of these comments in my face so I can laugh as hard as she is I’ll just ask her who wrote it, then laugh. I’ll already know why she was laughing at it just by knowing who said it.

    Enjoy your little never ending battle, b4b keep on trying to convince people your lies are true, and the rest of you keep on trying to convince b4b they are wrong, neither side will ever win, you can’t get information into a closed mind and you can’t convince those that know the truth to believe outrageous lies.

    Lots of luck to all of you….

    Good Night.

    A: Jesus would be pissed at you for using his name in vein. Enjoy your pitchfork in the bum.
    B: Considering that it’s not even a word, “moonbats” doesn’t strike me as an effective insult. Once again, you failed it.
    C: BAAAAAAWWWWW. Cry me a river of salty, Christian tears!

    You accuse me and Dio of mindless hate? How do you justify that?

    They’ll probably throw in some excuse that includes the bible and Jesus and what have you. They’re known for that kind of idiocy, El.

    I agree with what you say, Arn, though I personally come here to relieve stress, and laugh at people. It’s fun, because the staff and regulars here make (M)Ann Coulter look like a pacifist. Coulter may clamor about abolishing women’s rights, but she almost never calls for outright genocide– or says that women should be beaten regularly.

  24. It’s sad but no big surprise. I have friends in the Chicago area who travel to the Waukegan area for business and hate it.

    Apparently this mall is located in a very liberal area frequented by homosexuals and other “wrong kinds”, so it could turn out to be a blessing in disguise.

    Maybe those people will all move away and let decent people reclaim their community.

I haven’t been here much lately and I just jotted that down without really giving any of it a whole lot of thought (not that much thought is really required)so I just stuck in names as they came to me, I knew I would miss some people, but you have posted several of my favorite comments, how I forgot about you I will have to blame on the pot for now, please forgive me, and I’m fairly sure the rest can figure out where I would have put you in there. Right in the middle, telling the truth, often in clearer language than most of the rest.

After considering the way each person came to mind I can see that the whole thing was loosely based on the way I have always viewed each of the people here. And to be perfectly honest, I don’t think I ever viewed you as an actual participant in these conversations, but rather as an informed observer. Perhaps if you go back and read some of your comments you can see why.

I may occasionally come back and read a few of these things for laughs, and maybe from time to time interject with my opinion on one subject or another, but I can’t be trolled back into another senseless debate where there is no debate. So if you wish to continue to disagree with me or call me a liar or whatever insult you choose to use, then by all means, knock yourselves out, but if you plan to do so expecting a response from me then don’t bother, you wont get one.

  30. Panic-making, eh? Let the guys from the government do their job and find out what happened before jumping to conclusions, mkay? I´s better than fear-mongering. And realistically, I could come up with way better targets for any wannabee-terrorist than a mall. Monuments tend to get much more publicity.

    We should wrap their dead in pigskins, too. That way their souls will never make it to their phony Paradise. If we start wrapping the swine up in swine carcasses, we’ll have fewer swine to kill in future.

    That line of thinking backfired horribly in Vietnam. And here, the powder keg is even bigger, with all those muslims that don´t want to be at war being potentially mightily pissed off.

    and PG does a bit of background work and verifies that, yes, it’s true, they really are morons.

Is it just as easy for you to use the N-word or any other slur? Or do you view homosexuals as lesser people than other minorities? You love to attack people as being hateful and then you use slurs. Typical Liberal Idealism….Do as I say, not as I do.

    What?

    “Why are you so comfortable in using that word Dio?”
    Because on 4chan, it’s not a homophobic slur, it’s a general insult. Calling you a Christfag doesn’t mean I think you’re a gay Christian, it means I think you’re an idiot that hides behind his Bible to excuse his immoral actions.

    1. BJ, you have just shown yourself agains to be a morally defunct bastard cheering upon the deaths of other people.

    2. It was a gas explosion. Last time I checked, terrorists aren´t engaged in maintaining the gas distribution.

    3. They´d be still complete morons. Why a mall? If you want to cause real mayhem, blow a dam! If you want to cause some upheaval, the power grid´s nodes are perfect. And if you simply want to kill, go to a small town, blow up the only police station via car bombs and then advance through the neighbourhood and gun down anything in sight. It´s not like a bunch of civvies with hunting rifles could really stop a squad of trained people with AK´s without taking horrible causalties.

    Wayne Lo:
    Early life

    Wayne Lo was born in Tainan, Taiwan. His father was a fighter pilot in the Taiwanese air force and his mother was a music teacher. Lo has a younger brother. The family immigrated to the U.S. in 1987, settling in Billings, Montana. His parents ran a restaurant business in Billings. Lo attended Lewis and Clark Jr. High School and then Billings Central Catholic High School. Lo was a violinist and played in the Billings Symphony beginning in his freshman year of high school. He attended the Aspen Music Festival and studied under Dorothy Delay.

    In 1991, Lo was accepted by Simon’s Rock College of Bard in Great Barrington, Massachusetts and given the W.E.B. DuBois minority scholarship.

    Shooting rampage

    Lo did not adjust well to the liberal college environment of Simon’s Rock. Lo held views which were deemed racist, homophobic and anti-semitic by fellow students at the college. Lo steadily became more and more excluded by his fellow students.

    On December 14, 1992, Lo carried out a shooting rampage. That morning he received an ammunition order that he had placed two days earlier. He then went to Pittsfield, MA and purchased an SKS at a gun shop that afternoon. Lo commenced shooting at around 10:30 pm. The victims:

    * Nacunan Saez – 37 – professor – shot dead
    * Galen Gibson – 18 – student – shot dead
    * Theresa Beavers – 42 – security guard – wounded
    * Thomas McElderry – 19 – student – wounded
    * Joshua Faber – 15 – student – wounded
    * Matthew David – 18 – student – wounded

    Lo surrendered to the police after his rifle jammed and he called 911, informing them that he was the shooter. He was taken into custody without incident.

    And there are many, MANY more. So, -every- school and mall shooting is the work of a liberal, you say?

  55. Dio, and others that have explained the common usage of the term “ChristianFag” or whatever it is to me. Let me ask, would you be comfortable with throwing around the term “ChristianNigger” or “ChristianSpick”. Why is it easy for you to use a term that homosexuals find offensive? It doesn’t matter that you aren’t offended by using that word, you obviously aren’t gay or have been label and defined by a stereotype of others. You are using hurtful speech to shock people into thinking your way, something that you attack the B4B writers for doing. Your a hypocrite in this fashion and it weakens your argument.

    I apologize for the rather severe language in this post to anyone offend. One should never have the words “Christian” and “Fag” touching. Also…the usage of the N-word and the S-word. I am simply trying to point out that one can’t be against the usage of racial slurs and yet so easily use slurs against homosexuals. I find that irritatingly hypocritical.

    I have to disagree there,(not that it wasn’t great, because it was). But there’s just something about the helplessness of being trapped, as in a wheelchair, that adds something to the tenseness of a situation that he exploited so beautifully in Rear Window that makes Saboteur have to take a rear seat.

    Oh hell, never mind, it’s just seems wrong to try and put things of his in order, face it, he was a master of his craft. Let me take that back now and say I do agree. It’s one of Hitchcocks, and that automatically makes it one of his best.

  61. ElephantBones- I think your missing my point. I have never attacked homosexuals on this site nor any other site. Furthermore, your argument that homosexuals don’t “own” the word is childish. African American’s don’t “own” the N-word; doesn’t mean it should be used freely and easily. Yes we have free speech, but just as you can’t yell fire in a crowed movie theater, free speech comes with a responsibility. If you want to use this word and any other slur, fine as you have the right. Just remember your choice of words show more about you than you realize. Honestly stop for a moment and think about what we are discussing. In this context, do you honestly believe that this is appropriate way to get your views across? Maybe its me, but I find anyone that uses slurs as ignorant. I just think that you and Dio are too smart as individuals to need to use these hurtful and insulting words to express your views. It weakens your arguments. At least thats my opinion.

    If you were right and it was terrorism, Obama could have nothing to do with it’s happening. The person who would really look bad here is G.W. Bush. He’s the one that has constantly said that we are winning the war on terror. He takes all of the credit for not having any more attacks (even though he’s wrong) and a new attack now would place the blame squarely on his shoulders (whether true or not)

    So who, really, would be the one to look bad if that had been a terror attack?

  66. Dio & Elephant Bones- I expect those things from the B4B crowd. They prescribe to an extreme, literal translation of the bible, mixed in with some healthy xenophobia. I haven’t notice them singling out any ethnic group for more abuse compared to others. Its more honest than pretending to be tolerant and shocked by the B4B writers, while throwing around a word to hurt homosexuals. The defense of using the word, that it is also a British term meaning cigarette, is hollow. Sure it is a true use for the word in the correct context. However, this is nowhere near the correct context. It would be the same pathetic argument that you should be allowed to freely use the N-word since you heard it on a rap CD. Even worse, your using the term “ChristFag” as an insult so it still meant to offend. How exactly have you managed to make this term less offensive or harmful to homosexuals? Again I stand by my initial point that is by freely using this word, your coming off as ignorant and hypocritical. Gosh forbid either of you two admit you could be wrong. I think I could come out for World Peace and you two would attack me for it. Like two little trolls….

    Seems like they hate almost all ethnic groups. And you’re still not understanding our stance on gays. Me and Dio have no problem with gays (I have several gay friends), which is why when we say ‘fag’, it’s not as a slur, but a general insult.
    Nigger has always been a black insult, chink always against Asians, spick always against Mexicans. Fag, on the other hand, is used on more than just the gay community. So stop trying to look like a humanist by calling us homophobes.

  84. This whole idea of a male deity, and only a male deity, is sort of funny to me. I always saw God as hermaphroditic, since limiting Hem to a single gender implies Hir omnipotence is also limited, which creates a contradiction. Every early deity had a consort, and this concept reached as far back as the Neolithic, if not the Paleolithic, eras. (In other words, as long as there’s been religion, there’s been polytheism. Monotheism is a very new concept, dating back only about four thousand years.) For example, among the ancient Chaldeans (ancestors of the Babylonians), worshiped many gods, including the Sky God Yahweh and his consort Lilith.

    Then a Chaldean named Abram left his hometown of Ur, changed his name, and started a monotheistic cult, dropping all Chaldean gods from the pantheon except Yahweh. By refusing contact with outsiders and an unprecedented ban of homosexuality and extramarital sex, this cult managed to survive for two thousand years, until a man named Yeshua (commonly spelled Jesu or Jesus) was born. Yeshua tried to show people that we should be nicer to each other, treat foreigners as equals (including foreign women), and love our enemies. The religious authorities didn’t like this dramatic break in tradition and put Him to death. His followers, refusing to let the idea of a male deity die, equated Yeshua with Yahweh.

    In order to increase their numbers, the followers of Yeshua, known as Christians, used a two-pronged attack of demonizing pagan gods and assimilating pagan holidays (such as Yule and Ostara, aka Christmas and Easter) into their tradition. Now, a tiny monotheistic cult has grown into three major religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), and we fail to realize how much cruelty towards women has been caused by so many people all over the world calling God male.

  87. I’m not trying to go into too much detail with that explanation, Dio. It’s just a totally objective description of Christian history pre-Luther.

    And before I get ragged on for using the word “cult”:

    “The literal and traditional meaning of the word cult is derived from the Latin cultus, meaning “care” or “adoration.” In English, “cult” remains neutral and a technical term within this context to refer to the “cult of Artemis at Ephesus” and the “cult figures” that accompanied it, or to “the importance of the Ave Maria in the cult of the Virgin.”

    In non-English European terms, the cognates of the English word “cult” are neutral, and refer mainly to divisions within a single faith.In French or Spanish, culte or culto simply means “worship” or “religious attendance”; thus an association cultuelle is an association whose goal is to organize religious worship and practices.”

    “According to Rodney Stark’s A Theory of Religion, most religions start out their lives as cults or sects, i.e. groups in high tension with the surrounding society. Over time, they tend to either die out or become more established, mainstream and in less tension with society.”

    “Since this definition of “cult” is defined in part in terms of tension with the surrounding society, the same group may both be and not a cult at different places or times. For example, Christianity was by this definition a cult in 1st and 2nd century Rome, while in fifth century Rome it became rather an ecclesia (the state religion). Similarly, very conservative Islam could constitute a cult in the West but also the ecclesia in some conservative Muslim countries.”
