''I have yet to meet a person of Indian ancestry, of any religion, who wasn't respectful, hard-working and thankful to be here in the US. Why would this lunatic pick them as a target? I can't do anything but shake my head and feel disgusted that one of my people would be this vicious and disrespectful of human life. I don't know what in the hell is going on in this country. Blacks shooting each other over nothing, whites shooting innocent people, Mexican drug cartels chopping off peoples' heads, black flash mobs robbing stores and beating the employees, gay people acting as nasty as the worst Right winger just because someone at Chic-fil-a said something they don't like.''Another:
''I've had many interactions, unpleasant and otherwise, with people from every continent. I can't remember ever being unduly inconvenienced by Sikhs. What is the angle, the supposed justification?''
The resident AmRen cheerleader and apologist for his 'fave ethnic groups' says, predictably:
"Sikhs most assuredly belong in this country. Like Orientals and east Indians they have low crime rates. Foreign cultures not associated with social pathology fascinate me.
Wade Michael Page was probably some deranged right wing nut case who thought his victims were Muslims."
To respond to Mr. Asiaphile himself, I agree that this man should not have shot and killed anyone.
Sikhs, however, in response to their apologists, share certain traits with Moslems, e.g. the practice of ''honor killings'' by parents. As far as nonviolence, one knowledgeable poster does mention the Sikhs who killed Indira Gandhi. In response to a commenter who says Sikhs are 'peaceful and non-confrontational', "Alex", says:
''They are peaceful and non-confrontational as long as they are tiny minority.Yes I do remember reading of the Singh brothers who killed Indira Gandhi, and Air India Flight 182. But few seem to know of things like that. Sikhs, like Moslems, are also prone to bringing lawsuits, often in regard to cultural clashes.
Remember sovereign Khalistan movement, assassination of Indira Gandhy and Air India flight 182?''
Too many of us have to an extent bought into multiculturalism. I would say the majority of AmRenners, for example, actually believe multiculturalism/multiracialism is workable and is fine as long as we pick the 'good' Third Worlders to share our countries with. Everybody, or almost everybody, on ethnopatriot or even WN sites will go to bat for some favorite group or other; they are very combative at times on behalf of those they see as the 'good ones'. Some people seem to actually be on ethnonationalist blogs or websites for the sole purpose of championing their favorite minority. It's an issue that has to be addressed, because it's prevalent, and not just on the Internet.
There's nothing wrong with being for our own people; we don't have to legitimize it by praising everybody else excessively, speaking up for them (as if they don't speak up for themselves) and looking for the good side to multiculturalism.
Some of those on AmRen are little better than the liberals, wringing their hands over everybody but us. How about a little concern for your own?
And how about waiting for more information before you accept the biased media's pronouncements?
One poster does mention this information:
"The detail that jumps out at me is the fact that he worked in psychological operations at Fort Bragg. Now THAT is very unusual and suggestive, to say the least...''
Yup. I expect we won't hear much about that, but I noticed that detail.
One observation: I live in a community which now has fast-growing numbers of Sikhs. They are becoming quite visible. And today while I was out and about I saw local Sikhs coming and going about their business as usual. The news media, as in a linked article I posted last night, would have us believe that Sikhs are cowering in fear. Not here. And actually I would not wish them to be in fear. Surely they don't believe, as Mark Potok and his minions, that White Americans are homicidal lunatics who strike fear into the hearts of minorities everywhere.
Actually, few immigrants seem to believe how "evil" White Americans are, or they would not be coming here; they would avoid our countries.
Actions speak louder than words.
The verdict is that White Americans are not raging bigots who frighten everybody, despite what the SPLC and the controlled news media say.
