Terrorism rears its ugly head in Europe again. Reports indicate possible multiple shooters.

8 dead, 5 seriously injured. Two separate shooting scenes, both shisha bars. One shooter in custody, possibly another still at large. Motives and suspect ID not yet made public.

Obviously lots to follow on this, and as usual expect preliminary reports to be garbage.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Terrorism is conducted by extremists across the spectrum. Nine now confirmed deceased. Very sad and Merkel used the R word today. My condolences to the families of those shot.

.... Very sad and Merkel used the R word today...
What does that even mean in this context? Is Chancellor Merkel stating that it was believed the shooter acted out of racism (the "R" word I believe you're alluding to) now in the same league as someone using the "n" word in your mind?
He's old enough to know what's right
And young enough not to choose it

'

Yes she blamed racism and it looks like she would be correct.
