Yeah. I've seen enough of these to be super skeptical.
Enough of what? Three black churches were burned down within 10 days. What is there to be skeptical about? And why is this the stance that you choose to represent yourself by?
I can understand being skeptical over one incident......
but what Scotch said. Three in ten days, they seem to have placed the guy at all three locations too.
The odds are too much in favor of it being a hate crime, unlike the Jessie Smalwhatever thing.
Time will tell.
Sorry, didn't see what that poster said.
If it's legit, fine. But since so many dick knuckles want to be "victims" and create their own chaos, I remain skeptical. That's not my fault, it's these fakers'.
Recalibrate your BS detector. The number or real hate crimes is multiple orders of magnitude larger than fake hate crimes.
The existence of the SPLC is a hate crime.
Sure. But the fact there are so many fake hate crimes should naturally lead someone to be more skeptical where they shouldn't have to be.
Do you think I actually like being seen as a humongous douchebag for thinking twice about these allegations?
Why else would you go dormant for weeks, then come out of the woodwork just to address this particular kind of post?
You're a real scumbag, aren't you?
If I called you a "snowflake", I guarantee you'd lose your mind. But, since you know my values and political views, you just figure it's okay to throw out shots.
And my dormancy was because there was a suicide of a good friend, then a death in the family, a funeral, family in town and cleaning out a mansion. But yeah, I'm the douchbag who just cherry picked this one particular post - nevermind all the other ones I responded to - because I'm the asshole.
Shame on me for clicking on the "show content" button.
Everyone should be skeptical of everything. But we use probabilities to target our skepticism where it will do the most good. The number of fake hate crimes is so low that you should have very low confidence that this is a fake hate crime.
On some level, yes, I think you like it.
Holden Matthews has been charged with three counts of arson. He may also be charged with hate crimes and/or domestic terrorism. I have never understood why the law includes the concept of "hate crimes." When a white man kills a black man or burns down a black church, does he do so out of love? Of course it's a hate crime. Doy!
Hate crime, domestic terrorism charges could be on the way for man accused of burning black churches
Whatever the motive, church burnings are an act of hate
Yep, I love it. Always arguing with you guys? Why would you think I derive pleasure from that?
Sunni Muslims take their name from the Arabic Sunnah (سُنَّة), which literally means "manner of acting" and refers to the teachings of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Apparently those "teachings" include making bombs and killing innocent people.
At least 20 killed in market blast in Quetta, Pakistan
Because you do it. If you didn't like it you would stop.
LOL pot meet kettle.

The child was badly injured. How could anyone do such a horrible thing to a child?

I give to the Southern Poverty Law Center. They are not a hate group.
How much poverty do you contribute to them each year?
That's a bit harsh.
That's a pretty reasonable assessment.
Agreed. Hate crimes, and fake hate crimes both exist. Like all cop movies, investigate the crime, but be ready for the plot twist.
A bit, sure.
But let's all be careful to not make the jabs personal.
Could is the operative word.
I think it's likely true, and will be surprised if it's not, but a jury will decide.
Chill out people.
