    n the most recent tweet, Salon is referring to the deadly shooting that left nine dead on Wednesday after a gunman opened fire at a historically black church in Charleston, South Carolina.

    The 2013 tweet referred to the Boston Marathon bombing, which killed three and wounded hundreds. It was later revealed that the Tsarnaev brothers, of Chechnya, were motivated by radical Islam.

    True but it represents liberals in general even some on this board.

    That is not true. The only people I've met who take it seriously seem to be extremists in their early twenties.

    You would have a better case if the headline said, "Christians must apologize ....." in the one headline and that "Muslims do not need to apologize...." in the second one.

    I do find it interesting why the Tsarnaevs were considered terrorists but the media seems to be going out of its way to make excuses to not call Roof a terrorist.
