Lynch Mob Mentality

“Were I Vladimir Putin, I would persuade Boshirov and Petrov to voluntarily come to the UK and stand trial, on condition that it was a genuinely fair trial before a jury in which the entire proceedings, and all of the evidence, was open and public, and the Skripals and Pablo Miller might be called as witnesses and cross-examined. I have no doubt that the British government’s desire for justice would suddenly move into rapid retreat if their bluff was called in this way.”

Whoa. The writer acknowledges that there is a “lynch mob mentality” in people who defend the Skripal hoax, but then says that Boshirov and Petrov should submit to a lynch mob trial.

So many people have made this error. During the 1990s, several people (e.g. Ernst Zundel) were put on trial for questioning the holocaust™ myth, thinking that logic and reason would prevail. They were wrong. The mob has no logic or reason, whether inside or outside of a courtroom.

China is “educating not mistreating Muslims”. This could be a great export industry for China: we send them Muslims to be taught that female genital mutilation, suicide bombing, homophobia, treating apostates like dirt, killing cartoonists and authors, desecrating 2000 year old architectural gems etc etc etc do not constitute civilized behavior. And China charges for the service.

Musgrave, your self-righteous bigotry is showing again.

"Christian" nations are far ahead of Muslims in terms of people killed, crippled, impoverished, and displaced, and in terms of property damage.

Incidentally, if someone questions rampant homosexuality, this does not mean that he is a "homophobe."

Russia does not allow homosexuals to use government funds to hold militant "gay pride" parades. No doubt you think this means that Russia's 145 million people are "homophobes."

F-ing childishness.
