    I know you know what I am about to say is true, but do you REALLY KNOW it?

    There are no sane, mainstream people of consequence who say "every brown person is a terrorist". Or even anything approaching such a thing.

    Therefore, people who say such things are falling for a typical left-wing propaganda trick; build up a strawman, and knock it down with a sneering, dismissive swipe intended to smear, humiliate and ultimately silence those who would engage in adult public conversation.

    I have to agree.

    The most annoying example of that to me is if I criticize certain behaviors of certain women, I'll get a "Not all women are like that" almost every time.

    I fucking know not all women are exactly the same, but I was talking about the women that are guilty of that behavior. I don't understand why people feel the need to say things like this.

    No, they aren't saying it. But can you point me to the white person who became a suspect (in the eyes of the public at least) because he went missing a month prior to the bombing? Or the white people who were called suspicious because their backpacks sagged, or because they were wearing a backpack at all?

    How about the two PMC looking dudes? They both looked pretty white.

    And the media seemingly jumped to the conclusion of white, redneck, gun nut immediately before knowing anything.

    so, they were id'd and then harassed to the point that they had to go down to the police station (or in the case of this kid, had the facebook page set up for him harassed)?

    If someone could have identified them, they probably would have been harassed. Someone thought the missing kid looked like one of the wanted brothers and they put it out there. This is how the internet works. Doesn't matter if it's true, people get outraged and attack. The same thing happened when they were trying to identify the shooter at Sandy Hook. They found some kid and attacked. He was white, so it has nothing to do with race. It's about people overreacting and lashing out.

    I have to admit this has been a very effective tool utilized by the left for some years now.
