Did the Hare Krishnas (kind of an unorthodox Hindu outreach program) get their free meals inspiration from the Sikhs?

I told my girlfriend that I’m starting to feel like I’m living in 1930’s Germany.

That's indeed the case. Adolph Hitler: socialist. Obama: socialist. And the parallels don't stop there by any means.

That further raises the chance this was not at all a coincidence.

Every one of these things concerning shootings in religious places, recently, is that it virtually always is a personal thing, the shooter has some kind of tie to the place.

This is horrible!

Just imagine this happening in your Church or Temple this morning?

And two shooters...that indicates premeditation and conspiracy.

Prayers up for a very rapid response for the injured, for the safety of the children, and for the protection of the police and the emt’s.

He’s at the best hospital in the area being treated. They deal with gunshots all the time. They did say they expect him to survive which is good news.

Serving food on the premises of temples to visitors is an ancient activity in India. Remember, Sikhism branched out of the Hindu religion and became militaristic as a reaction to the Muslim invasion of India.

The more I hear about this the more it’s not some dumb group of white racists doing it. It’s just not the profile. It’s a group of 3-4 people. They obviously researched the special priest being there today. What group of people have problems with Sikhs and like to persecute them? It ain’t German Wisconsin white guys. It’s the muslims. They could blend right in to the general crowds too appearing to look like Sikhs.

If it’s anything at all along these lines then it means the shooters know (or think) their victims are Hindus/Indians and not Muslims.

There's a HUGE clue here. They want to force people to go against their deep seated religious beliefs. They want to shove their religious beliefs down their throats.
Two white Americans. WHO would want a religious organization - that opposes the liberal agenda - to do something contrary to their conscience?

Yes, it confirms to me it isn’t “white guys”. It’s muslims. They knew the special visiting priest was going to be there today. They took this as a chance to get back at longtime enemies.

Earlier reports of visiting S priest from India suggests foreign involvement with assassination the goal. Hope the dude wasn’t outed by Obama’s WH as a CIA asset or something. Wish we could find out his name.

The parallels are eerily similar, except instead of Jews, it’s Christians that are now ok to persecute. I know in this case it wasn’t but that’s where the trend is going. I’m still wondering when 0bama’s Reichstag Fire moment will happen.

Yup, but I'd even describe the hairy backed terrorist we arrested in Afghanistan (or Pakistan)as white if I looked quickly.

Perhaps it was a democrat thinking they were Jewish

It is seemingly telling that the shooters first target was the priest according to witness comments.

Whoever these people doing this are, they have some knowledge or connection in some way with this temple. There seems to be a personnel connection and reason.

First, this religion is extremely anti-liberal. If these were white guys, l'd look toward the left wing special interest groups who feel they've been threatened by Christian beliefs.

Secondly, Muslims, on the other hand, do shave their heads when engaging in jihad. These guys were referred to as "bald."

Yes, it’s too coincidental that this special priest was here today, and also too coincidental that the shooter walked right up to him (targeted him) and shot him first.

This was not a hick white guy. This was a targeted assassination, an operation apparently involving a team of people.

Muslims can appear to look meditteranean, Italian, etc. If they are lighter skinned they can look european.

Interesting I didn’t know muslims shaved their head for jihad. Have to remember that.

It’s just too coincidental with this special priest. If it’s a “hate crime” it’s muslim against sikh. They’ve NEVER been bothered by anyone here before. No, these people attacked because they wanted to target the visiting high ranking sikh priest. First guy they went after.

To me it screams muslim islamicists.

Take it like a grain of salt. The democrat who flew a plane into a Texas federal building was "An angry conservative who hated the government. "
The Gabrielle Giffords shooter - "It was an angry Tea Partier!"
The Dark night - "We looked up his name. He's a Tea Partier!"

If this turns out to be Muslims or angry homosexuals, the media will spin like they've never spun before. Right now, it appears they're already blaming it on "intolerance" for Muislims - code for "right wing Tea Partier!".

I thought Sikhs only carried knives.

without knowing anything at all about this, betting the shooter isn't a Sikh.

Now then, piss off a Sikh, and you've got trouble. They're not emasculated and they're not politically correct.
