.This is exactly why our countries let in the muslims, hoping no harm will befall themselves…

I rather think the reason we “let the muslims in” is because a majority of us (slim majority) don’t wish to be bigots and hypocrites.

Also little things like historical awareness, sympathy for human suffering, confidence in existing social systems, conviction in founding principles, logical consistency, etc etc. The radicalization spam is pretty tiresome. They’re not even on-topic.

Then you will be a victim.

You do realize you’re far more likely to die in a car crash than be the victim of a terrorist attack? That you’re far more likely to be murdered in a random crime than a terrorist attack? That IF said terrorist attack happened, and you were in the United States, the perpetrator would most likely be a WHITE right-wing nut or a WHITE school shooter? That terrorist attacks are primarily carried out by people who were born in the country the attack occurred in? That refugees are not terrorists?

“We” are already “victims” of radicalized, far-right wackos who think the American flag should be flown upside-down daily.

Why is the US Flag diplayed [sic] Upside Down?
“The upside down U.S. flag is an official signal of distress. It is not meant to be, and is not officially recognized as any type of disrespect when so displayed for the right reasons. To the contrary, here is the relevant part of the US Code of Laws regarding how to fly the flag when in distress:
THE FLAG CODE
Title 36, U.S.C., Chapter 10
As amended by P.L. 344, 94th Congress
Approved July 7, 1976

§ 176. Respect for flag: No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.

(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.

Most individuals who have served in the military service of our nation will (or should) recognize this signal.

As a result of the many traitors and enemies we as a free people have, both foreign and domestic, as a result of the many unconstitutional acts, legislation and atrocities passed and/or committed against US citizens and their life, liberty and property, and as a result of policies that have allowed (and continue to allow) enemies of this nation to enter in large numbers through a porous border policy, I believe the life, liberty and property of US Citizens are in dire danger and distress."
