He's afraid there's going to be an unfair conclusion drawn, so he's in full defense, full name calling mode.

I hate to ever appear to be coming to John's defense, but there are people saying things that are just wrong.

The *only* thing the shooter liked about Trump was that Trump had become a symbol of and focus for "white identity."

Whatever that is.

I don't know about you guys but I don't really identify with somebody because they're white.

I know. You're right.

Makes me want to stop talking about it altogether.

Terrible.

And people were once worried about violence in Mortal Kombat but the reality is looking like if anything is going to destabilize the world it's going to be the effects of social media/meme culture on confirmation bias. I'm worried that for every one person that uses the internet to become enlightened and educated you have 10 more using it to simply amplify their current biases and/or speed up their descent into whatever depressive state they are already inclined towards.

Excellent post.

"people(S)" need to take a deep break and break away from the politics thread.

Nor do I.

A lot of people chose not to identify with Obama because he wasn't though.

news flash it's been in effect. Human beings are flawed fundamentally, now they have tools to broadcast their deranged antics. Sometimes I think The Homo-sapien is too intelligent, and that could be he/she demise. Then again the hell do I know.

These guys want to have a fascist meritocracy, but they'd be the first ones getting sterilized.

x2

And yes, this is very awful.

I'm huge fan of free speech, but from here to "real" social media, the effects of this meme/sm culture of confirmation bias is a very scary thing regarding how it shapes our behavior and interactions IRL. Divisiveness is just getting worse and worse, and I do believe you are on to something with the social media culture.

I wonder if this makes us one step closer to governmental oversight on internet traffic.

"There are courts, dispute resolutions, and legislatures to resolve controversies "

What controversies? Being Muslim?

I think there's an element of morbid curiosity that comes with a video like this. I'm not going to lie I clicked it but wisely closed the tab before it started playing.
