Food for thought.

He is a terrorist, kind of.

He'd be called a terrorist if we knew he did the shooting for political purposes.

or religious

You miss the point:

Breivik (comparable for obvious reasons) was called a terrorist because his plot was clearly politically motivated; of that there is no question
This guy is not called a terrorist because his attacks are not politically or religiously motivated; that I do not dispute either.

What I AM saying is that had a Muslim shot up that cinema in exactly the same circumstances, the media would almost certainly have jumped on the idea of terrorism.

Ah, I see what you mean now. Sorry for my first comment, I completely misread you. I deleted it.

That's the media being the media. Corrupt and worthless.
Over here in Europe, it would be the opposite. If a muslim shot up a cinema, the media would do everything to keep a lid on him being muslim at all.
Those fucks are being spoiled beyond measure in that regard.

What makes you say that? I'm in Europe - England - and that never occurred to me.

It's an observation I've made over years.
Newspaper, tv news, even internet press, they even shorten the given name to the initial letter if it's giving away the guy's muslim or even just a foreigner.

Political correctness has grown into a cancer.

I really haven't noticed that. In fact, most red tops seem to jump on the thought that Islam is out to get us all. I can only speak from my own experience, of course.
