    Political correctness note: The SPINELESS Nashville Tennessean claims to not know his religion, but they were able to point out that the students were Lutheran and Catholic. People on the Tennessean forums are enraged over our PC newspaper. Also, there have been Arabic speaking gangs in South Nashville (pretty well hushed up by the media, as well) which have been breaking into homes, robbing and raping people. :BangHead:

    The Muslim mall shooter (news last week) was pretty well covered up by major media, too. According to several witnesses, he was shouting allah akbar as he shot & killed the people (also heard on FNC today).

    Tired of the PC press....

    Uh oh, now there are some folks on this board who have a moral dilemna. A Catholic and a Lutheran arguing with a muslim about religion? As much as Catholics get blasted here, there are some people who are going to have a difficult time deciding whether there really was a bias there. I mean, after all, Catholics and Lutherans aren't doctrinally pure, are they? From what I read here, being Catholic is as much a ticket straight into the pits of hell as being Muslim is, and Lutherans sprinkle infants, too. Obviously, they deserved to be run over. It's just unfortunate that the cabbie wasn't a Baptist, or he'd have been justified in what he did. Right?

    We really need an emoticon for "tongue in cheek" here.

    If only folks would start putting these "random" events together they would begin to see a pattern which has been only too obvious since WAY before 1979. Remember 1979? Hmmmmmmmm?

    The cabbi probably had a bad hair day cuz we are all being programmed by our media that a Muslin surely couldn't be a motivation for killing Americans or killing anyone.
    I wonder what the lib media will be saying if Muslims blow up the NY Times building. I guess that wouldn't happen though -- why would they hurt those that support them?

    Ahhhhh, my kind of thread :D Now where's SALTY?

    Sounds like this bloke didn't pay attention in cabbie school. Running over passengers isn't good P.R...as tempting as it can be some times ;)

    Don't get me wrong, there's no way I'm endorsing the cabbie's actions here, but the cabbie in me does wonder a bit. The article says "early Sunday morning" How early? Was he towards the end of Saturday night shift? What were his fares before that? What was the conversation leading up to it?

    I've been in the game 14 years and fair dinkum at times it could turn Shirley Temple herself into Genghis Khan :tonofbricks:

    The ridiculous assertion that the Tennesean deliberately left out the religion of the cabbie because there is some sort of conspiracy in the media to keep the public from knowing that Muslims sometimes do violent things still has me chuckling, especially after reading the piece in the paper.

    Genuine threat of what? Muslims taking over the US by infiltration and stealth? That qualifies as paranoia. Terrorist attacks on US soil increasing? No way. Bush solved that problem by invading Iraq.

    If there was some tacit media conspiracy to do PR work on behalf of Muslims, then we'd be hearing a lot more often that crime among the Muslim community in America is far, far lower than it is among the population at large. As far as the media being biased against Christians, frankly, it doesn't have to be. Religious conservatives in politics do an excellent job of making themselves look stupid, ignorant and narrow-minded, and what some people on this thread have said is a good example of that.

    Go on the Tennessean forums to find out what our fellow Nashvillians think about the Tennessean on this story, such as being the right arm of the Democratic Party, and worse. You'll find more news on Nashville in the forums than you will in the paper. (I verified some of it on Google). Bet you won't find any news in the Tennessean about the Arabic speaking gangs that have been breaking in, robbing, and raping people in South Nashville. (They'll probably leave off the Arabic speaking part.) Last week, there was a break in over on McGavock Pike, far removed from the Nolensville Pike area. (seemingly the same MO break in #9) Next could be your neighborhood. But right now they seem to be targeting Hispanics. Police don't seem to have a clue, either.

    The forums on the Tennesean represent only a fraction of our fellow Nashvillians, or of its readers. The "left wing media bias" accusation of religious right wingers and ultra conservatives isn't anything new. Unless a source is completely biased toward the conservative side, right wingers view it as having a "liberal bias."

    I figured it wouldn't be long before people started making a political, Democrat vs. Republican issue out of stuff like this. Go ahead with that theme, make a huge deal out of it and see how well it works.

    Well, don't you find it quite "odd" that the local paper didn't print the religion of the muslim, but other national media outlets managed to find that out? Isn't it odd to you that the Catholic and Lutheran were mentioned in the Tennessean article, but the muslim religion was left out of it? Seems biased to me and that "fraction" of fellow Nashvillians who post on the forum.

    Seems dishonest to me quite frankly and I don't even live in Tenn. But my business partner is from there. Does that count? LOL

    Actually, I didn't read about the incident in the Tennessean, I watched the report on NewsChannel 5, and those liberals most definitely did mention the religion, as have the other major news stations in town.

    If the Tennessean is involved in some liberal media conspiracy to hide what Muslims are doing by not mentioning that they are Muslim, they need to inform their fellow liberals in the other media outlets to do the same. Otherwise, I don't think the Tennessean will be successful in its efforts, since more people watch television news than read their paper.

    I'm still not really clear on exactly what you think they are trying to accomplish by leaving out the cabbie's religious beliefs. The Tennessean doesn't point out the religious beliefs of other criminals on which they report. To be fair, if they are getting blasted for not pointing out that this particular cabbie was a Muslim, they should point out the religious beliefs of all criminals who get caught. <inflammatory statement deleted - LE>

    Meh, the FBI even does this. It's called "SJS", for those of you that need a clue:

    Happens all the time.

    Hey 777 - you haven't posted here in a while. :wavey:

    Anti-Islamist Daniel Pipes coined the phrase. It's cute.
    Well, depending on how you define "all the time", I guess.

    That's true.

    This reminds me of something I considered a few months ago, but gradually stopped thinking about it. I used to be a fairly good amateur cartoonist, but haven't practiced that much in years. I am going to try working on that idea; a fierce, bearded man wearing a turban under his cowboy hat as he rides a camel with a western saddle and swinging a rope with a crude bomb noosed at the end, and the bubble shows him yelling "Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeee- hawd!!!"

    Maybe SJS, in some other form, is an explanation for why our cities have been racked by gang violence for decades, long before any significant Islamic immigration into this country.

    Hi, hope you're well. He never was.


    Everything Daniel Pipes does is cute. He's like a little kitten that way.

    Loosely, too loosely, so I'll rephrase...SJS is more common than you'd think.

    It's a disclaimer. Thanks for the reminder:

    Not all Muslims are jihadists


    You were right all along, I don't know Jack:

    Yeah...in some other form, SJS is the Muslim strain of this virus.

    Not all Muslims are jihadists

    Well, if I were you and I could draw at all, I would do this. There can never be enough cartoons about the jihadists, even the cowbody ones.

    Not all Muslims are jihadists
    Not all cowboys are jihadists
    Not all Muslims are cowboys
    Not all jihadists are cowboys


    At least this Muslim cabbie didn't have to deal with dog drool THIS time.
