Because, you know, if a white guy who hates the government kills a bunch of Americans, well, he’s nothing like us and he was a lone wolf and the government should just leave us alone.
But if one of those people attacks us, that proves they’re all like that!
But… but if I’d had my piece with me, I’d have plugged that terrorist right between the eyes, easy as you please! And then the girls would be fighting each other to get in my bed!
I thought this was “the price we pay for freedom”?
Oh, sorry, my mistake. That’s only if it’s a white man doing the killing.

A few days ago, I ordered a case from Amazon for a new phone I’d gotten. I was introduced to something called “Smile Amazon”, where the company would make a free small donation to one of a few preselected charities for every order I made through that part of their site… but I had to use the “smile.amazon” address in order for that to happen.
Then they asked if I wanted to download a “browser helper” to make sure that I always ended up back at their Smile address.
Seems to me like a shady tactic to get people to download and install their software.

He didn’t sell out the entire country to private investors, just a huge portion of it! So Presidential!
He’s going to have it gold-plated and put his name in bright lights under it.
