    For years I have argued that the actions of one, do not reflect on the entire group. One Black man committing a crime is not proof of anything other than the single individual committed a crime. It does not mean that all Blacks are criminals. I have long argued that the statistical excuses used by racists to justify the abuses visited on Black Americans is wrong and violates the Constitutional guarantees of the rights of citizens.

    So in that thread, I am a Liberal. Now, onto the Saudi who committed an apparent act of terror. Why is it bad to point out that one individual, even a Saudi, committing an act of Terror, is not representative of the entire religion, or nation? I have seen several threads and articles and statements from the left Denouncing Trump for saying about Saudi’s what I have been saying about others for decades.

    We have a report that another Saudi died trying to stop the attack. Was he representative of the Saudi’s? Or was he a fluke? An outlier of the Saudi’s? One who didn’t get the memo on Jihad?

    I can and do take issue with Trump on issues and policies. I take issue with Trump for ending the Compliance Actions against Police Departments that regularly violate Civil Rights as one often listed example. I am unhappy with how we left Syria.

    But what I really resent the hell out of is the Left suddenly sounding like the Insane Right Wing screaming that all of this group is bad, and all of that group is evil, and anyone who defends them is a horrific person. Nonsense. Absolute rubbish. If you want to take Trump to task for a policy, or an issue, then please do. But just standing around nit picking every statement and trying to twist everything means you are no better, in fact you are much worse, than those insane members of the Westboro Baptist Church who used to run around protesting Soldier’s funerals. I had no respect for them, and am losing whatever shreds of respect I once had for you all.

    Who is condemning all Saudis for the actions of this one person? On the other hand, considering all that has gone on with Saudi Arabia, isn't it time to question our "relationship" with them? They had a journalist killed and we didn't do anything. Quite the opposite.

    The Saudi prince who tRump speaks so highly brutally murdered a journalist who disagreed with him.

    We might as well have received condolences from Jeffrey Dahlmer.

    So all Saudis? No.

    The Saudi government? A buncha murdering criminals.

    If that journalist had been murdered while Obama was President, you wouldn't have even mentioned it.

    They keyword in everything is "Trump." Before his election, the only ones connecting the Saudis to terrorism, were the far-right Alex Jones conspiracy theorists and wacko anti-zionists.

    My my, how the left has done a 180 right turn under this President.

    The less entanglement we have with that forsaken nation the better.

    Your post is composed of nothing but lies.

    I don't know why that surprises me, it's pretty typical of the garbage you put out.

    Touched a nerve, did I? You know I'm right.

    Let's use "Russia" for another example. You leftists never had a problem with communist countries. One of your candidates even took his honeymoon in Russia.

    But when Donald Trump beat Hillary, suddenly you people turn into a bunch of paranoid little Joe McCarthys.

    No, no nerve to touch here.

    You're still a liar though.
