ISIS murdered 128 people in Ankara last month. Why should they hold a minute of silence? If we literally don't give a shit about them dying then why should they give France some bullshit minute of silence for the sake of sentimentality?

Not saying they are right to do this by the way, but it's fucking sports.

The same thing happened at a Celtic game near remembrance week, Celtic fans -predominantly Irish catholic descendants/supporters- tend not to remain silent to 'remember' british soldiers. People get all bent out of shape over that too.

It's amazing to me that people get so fucking nuts over these enforced public displays of grief and when anyone says 'well I don't agree' for any reason the reaction is so utterly vile.

It happened at last week's Packers Lions game too, but the opposite.

This page went up and got commented on before I could put the caveat that: what was chanted, and how many chants there were, are both debatable, and probably ultimately unknowable. From the video, it sounds like more than/other than just allahu akbar.

But I titled this page what the video is titled.

However, if FIFA didn't observe your losses in Ankara, does that mean you boo France's?
This happens right before the Turkey v Greece, aiding the ol' 'Is Turkey Europe?' debate.

This is nothing like the situation with Celtic fans vs the UK's soldiers, etc.

It's similar in that the reporting on it has been of the 'maximum outrage' daily mail variety and the responses predictably racist and over the top.

(Related: The Daily Mail published a cartoon yesterday juxtaposing refugees with rats. Literally an idea straight out of 'Der ewige jude')

Yeah though, I'll give you that Galatasaray fans (and some other Turkish team supporters) aren't exactly known for being level-headed and respectful of anything.

That guy
aw that's gross
I didn't know the Daily Mail was that bad.

There are a bunch of people who also associate a "Moment of Silence" with Christian belief.

So there's that.

There's also the part where Turks are insular Turkish supremicists. So there's that.

i like how the frothing right is taking the shitty reaction of a bunch of turkish soccer thugs as reason why we should just nuke the entire region and dash some babies against rocks for good measure

VaultDweller13
they are pro-government goons, islamofascists who also cheered about the Ankara bombings as those who were killed were Kurdish and Turkish leftists, trade unionists, marxists, anarchists etc. This despicable gesture is more to do with the civil war in Turkey, their logic is : "France supports PKK ( they are not) , these are ultra nationalist islamofascists mind you, our soldiers getting killed by PKK ( the list of Turkey's human rights violations against both guerilla and civilian Kurds is long, heavy and revolting) so why should we respect their dead?" This is a very insincere and disgusting reaction in many ways. But i am not surprised at all. Most of right wing people in Turkey are only separated from a Daesh militant by a few degrees not by kind per se.

Not all Muslims!

You're not using sarcasm correctly.

Rodents of Unusual Size
Well then let me.

You guys, even though most Muslims aren't terrorists, it doesn't mean the majority supports this kind of thing, even when overwhelming percentages support terrorism when polled and they scream in delight and celebrate when terrorist acts kill innocent people in the West. We should totally welcome as many of these people into America as possible, because their culture would totally do the same for us, it's the most loving culture on the planet!

There. That's how you do sarcasm.

Bort
That is indeed better!

Still a pussy cowardly stance to take, though. One thing about refugees is that the great majority of them are trying to flee violence, not find some new place to practice it.

Thing is, baby, I know you be trollin' me, but I like it.

Margin of error, 3.9%.

Saying Not All Muslims is like saying Not All Movies when a fucking Michael Bay movie comes out. Of course not, but it's the one that's getting attention at the time.
