Give him a life sentence. No point in continuing barbarism.

So this article is trying to connect Trump and white nationalism and New Zealand. Well done.

Just keep it to the USA ok?

Perhaps the proponents of white nationalism should stop exporting the hatred. Bannon in Europe, amongst others

Terrorism is an ideology that knows no international boundaries.

In this terrible world, it's not surprising that people occasionally turn to different forms of escapism. But please don't put others at risk.

Hate speech and bigoted language has consequences. Tragic consequences. Don't believe those who pretend otherwise or downplay the words of irresponsible public figures.

The language of hate has consequences.

It's important to take that into account on yet another dark day of man's inhumanity to man.

Have a safe weekend everyone, whoever you are and whatever your beliefs.

As long as they don't ever make him gay, that's fine with me.

As long as they don't make him religious, that's fine with me.

It's odd isn't it, people dismiss climate change but refuse to sit in a cafe that allows smoking. Maybe its because they don't want their clothes to stink, they surely must think second hand smoke is a myth as well, right? Why stop there, the air problems that exist all over Asia and kill in India are myths too in their minds I'm sure.

I'd reply at length, Dfg, but the Mod is on a roll, so I'll leave it there for today. Stay clean and green ;-)

Oh, nooo, they were my fave characters (aside from the main protagonists! :-)

@jcapan

It did. Real next level kind of vibe to it. Clever animation, cool storyline, soundtrack and no longueurs. Nolan's Batman was great and rescued the franchise from Joel Schumacher's lack of vision. I don't mind Affleck as Bats but the latest batch of DC output is pretty poor. Whereas Marvel (through Sony, Netflix, etc) usually deliver.

I do not intend to give money to Toho Cinema for this movie, one does not need to see another hero movie, to know very well the predicatble story formulat that willl be used. Hero saves the day, political agenda, hidden messages, blah blah the end..

Ah, you haven't seen it. Did you see the last Avengers movie - the heroes didn't save the day. Not sure what the political agenda and hidden messages were. Don't rely on Hulk too much?

I liked Darkman (Liam Neeson in a Sam Raimi flick), it was just a good old fashioned revenge story meets Phantom of the Opera. Oh and Unbreakable. No messages or agendas to push. Liked the new Into the Spiderverse as well, all entertainment and amazing visuals. Most recent fave would still be Thor Raganarok. I think it was a Hulk message, too. Don't take yer mates for granted, or something equally terrifying.

In the meantime, one does not need to read another post bashing a movie that has not been seen/released etc...

Do you see me advocating for that???

Nah, just throwing it into the mix.

But even calling it questionable leads people to be labelled as climate change-deniers.

Conversely, those who put their trust in science over faith (not referring to you) are labelled as unhinged.

There's a war on science - just look at the rise of the flat earthers and anti-vaxxers, of late.

Another boring hero movie, wearing a costume to save the day with political agendas and hidden messages behind the 'powers' get over it. Anime has more imagination

Have you seen it, though? What is the agenda? Is it anti-Skrull and pro-Kree, or something more nuanced?

I hope that the media don't give the bastard too much publicity. Don't make him a hero or martyr - let's hear about the victims, instead. We can all recall the name of the Oslo/Utoya mass murderer but can anyone remember his victims names? I can't.

This is so horrible, so much hatred in this world.

Teach them, educate them, but don't engage in political indoctrination.

Like swearing allegiance to the US flag, sort of thing?

Again, what is political about wanting to stop the catastrophe of climate change which will cause crop failures, sea levels to rise, famine, mass migration, conflicts, resource wars?

The manifesto for this brutal massacre is on Twitter. Pretty grim stuff, and it's all over the place: denouncing diversity, Sadiq Khan, Erdogan, praising white rebirth... all the usual messed-up madness.

And all of this dishonesty is being done in the name of advancing a leftist ideology with its associated massive government power grab. Nothing more.

There's nothing leftist about trying to save the planet for future generations. Would you call Sir David Attenborough and numerous other respected scientists leftist? What's his agenda, at age 92, do you think?

Humanity really needs a refresher course on the whole "thou shalt not kill" thing.

Or, instead of bringing any particular religion into it, people need to be educated against hatred.

It has been verified that at least one of the gunman livestreamed the shooting to social media, sharing the horrifying video to Facebook

Presume FB took it down pronto, denying the perp the propaganda coup he desired.

Anyone who thinks that human activity is causing global climate change is totally unhinged.

Well it's not down to any deities, that's for sure. The evidence is overwhelming that human activity is rapidly accelerating the process. Fossil fuel emissions, logging, plastics in the ocean - all building up. The first peoples to sufffer are developing countries, with poor infrastructure, housing, etc. The first world will only wake up when it's happening to them. Of course, by then, it will be very late in the day.

So basically, some Joe staring at a bunch of photos?

It's a bit more than that. I don't know about in Japan, but officers in the UK in specific units are trained up to combat and prevent the use and sharing of child pornography. Officers are male and female and the stress levels in the job are quite high, so I'm told. That's a difficult job for anyone.

More social justice warrior nonsense.

More lazy phrases. The younger generation are villified either for not being interested or for making a stand.

Kids need to stay in class and learn, not cut class or walk out of it and pull dumb media stunts.

Kids need to learn that the ruling elite doesn't care if it poisons their future.

One in the eye for those who will try and have us believe that the younger generation are apathetic. Good on them, because we're the ones bequeathing them a toxic legacy, if climate change is left unchecked.

I certainly think the Queen should intervene now and dissolve the "parliament". She has the power to do so.

She does not have the power to do so. And she wouldn't anyway, she tends to stay out of politics.

The majority voted to leave and are being ignored. It's time for a military coup to oust these so called peoples' representatives out. They are totally not fit for purpose.

The majority of the occupied 6 counties voted to stay. Are you happy for the GFA to be put in jeopardy. Will the soldiers be deployed to the streets of Belfast and Derry. How do you think that will play out in light of the one soldier being charged over Bloody Sunday.

And the avenues for manipulating audience perception are dwindling. YouTube, where anti-Larson videos proliferated ahead of the film's opening, chose to categorize "Brie Larson" as a news search, not a general one.

Clever move. Trolls will have to find other ways to spread the hate.
