Oh, so it's awkward for me now? I've not jumped to any conclusions, read back and you'll see that. Keep on digging pal.
I don't think you jumped to those conclusions, in my view you accepted too easily the first statements of the police, which might or might have not been accurately reproduced by the media (btw, that'a thing too, there are always some nuances). I learned to have patience.

I read back. You wrote ""Far-right", so he had it coming". Are you saying now that "far right" is not a political position? If so, what did you mean by that phrase? And if by "he had it coming", what were you trying to say if not that he deserved to be attacked (meant sarcastically, of course) because of his political stance?

It's getting more awkward for you, Loz, as you try furiously to back-pedal.

Antifa (or at least somebody with write access to their website) has claimed to be behind the attack, but has since deleted the post.

Re: All about the alt-right (in the wake of anti-Muslim shooting)

André Poggenburg announced his resignation from the AfD party in an email sent to the leadership earlier this week.

He wants to set up a new party with a logo that uses a cornflower symbol adopted as a secret sign by Austrian Nazis in the 1930s. This new party will be politically to the right of the AfD!

He will bring at least two AfD allies, Egbert Ermer and Benjamin Przybylla, into his fledgling party.

Three men sentenced to at least 25 years in prison over plot to bomb Muslim community in Kansas

The sentencing comes days after the arrest of four men in a plot to bomb a Muslim community in New York.

More white supremacist bombs than radical Islam!!

Re: All about the alt-right (in the wake of anti-Muslim shooting)

Not sure if this is in the right thread as it's more "Far Right" than "Alt-Right" but it seems the FPÖ has its fair share of naughty scamps...

Quote:
All ministers from Austria's far-right Freedom Party (FPÖ) are resigning, throwing the government into chaos.

The Freedom Party's leader Heinz-Christian Strache, who was also vice-chancellor, was forced to resign at the weekend after a video sting.

Mr Strache was filmed proposing to offer government contracts to a supposed Russian oligarch's niece.
Oops, busted...

Oops, busted...
You're about four days late.

In the meantime, the story has developed further.

Wolfgang Schäuble is on record for having said he believes the video was not intended as a media sting but was an attempt to blackmail Strache. If he is right, the question is, who was blackmailing Strache and did it influence his policies? And why did things turn sour so that that the blackmailers decided to publish the video and thus lose any means to blackmail him further? The video was made in 2017 so there would have been plenty of time to blackmail him. Schäuble is calling for an investigation into the origin of the video.

But Roman salutes are far more objectionable than killing people.

Well, last year they were.

Obviously this year everything is different.

Roman salutes. Made by the same people who use that sacred Hindu (or is it neolithic Eurasian) symbol.

Does it matter? What matters is that a guy was killed but people were saying, let’s not talk about the killing. Let’s talk about this Roman salute thing. People get killed every day and you have to live with it.

And now another guy is killed and they’re hoping we’ve forgotten that last bit.

Yes, it matters that people use false equivalence to try to minimize or even normalize atrocities committed in the name of Nazism. Hmmm, someone famous is doing that quite a lot at the moment... who could that be, again?

So according to your arse, the country of provenance of the salute does indeed influence whether a prior but unconnected killing is right or wrong?

Good we’ve got that cleared up
