    For those who don't read Spanish, it says The Islamic Commission of Spain expresses its most energetic condemnation of the attack committed today, Thursday, in Barcelona.

    Yes, the Muslims are condemning this horrible attack.

    After the Paris attacks people on the right came out and said that the Muslims weren't condemning these attacks and they MUST condemn these attacks. Took me 2 minutes to find about a hundred Muslim people who had condemned the attacks.

    Also just to point out that I posted a thread to help some right wingers condemn a terrorist who was convicted in Northern Ireland a few ago, and NOT ONE right winger condemned this. Now we have the attack, with the same tool as this one in Barcelona, which killed one person, and the President is struggling to condemn that one, he appears forced to condemn it with language that sounds like he's convincing and he keeps backtracking every time he does it like he's spitting out some durian sweet. (You'd know if you've ever had one).

    After the leftist/media shit-fit from his first, second, and third condemnation of the C-ville mess, I would not blame Trump for never condemning a single god damn thing for the next 7.5 years.

    But then you'd demand that all Muslims condemn after every fundamentalist Muslim attack, right? I mean, that's what happens.

    Trump tried to play politics and he got his ass handed to him because he was about as sincere as Nixon telling people he didn't do anything wrong.

    Do you really believe the people criticizing Trump's original statement are sincere? They don't have an agenda or anything, do they?

    The difference on the Muslim thing is that nobody will feign outrage over the precise language that any moderate Muslim group uses in condemning violence.

    Of course muslims give it lip service......but they don't actually do anything about it. This is strictly PR. Unless you've read the Quran you don't know the hate-filled basis of this religion.

    Correct.

    And yet far too many on the reprehensible right will do just that: blame ‘all Muslims’ for the attack, propagate the lie that Islam is a ‘terrorist religion.’

    We're all still waiting for the DNC to condemn ANTIFAs attack of free speech, and lawful protesters... Got a link to that? Maybe a thread where lefties here are condemning the attack? Don't worry I'll wait...

    While stating that each and every far right fascist is an individual and they're not responsible for anything to do with them.

    I'm sure you are. But then everyone's waiting for you lot to condemn the other side....

    And such becomes the whole partisan politics nonsense. Everyone demanding of the other to cede to their demands while trying to not give in on their own stuff.

    And while all this is going on, who's governing?
