Blogging Tory "Neo Conservative" would appreciate it if you could just get a grip, OK?
Another one bites the dust
Just like all the recent hysteria over Taser related deaths... it turns out the supposed rising tide of hate crimes in North America... is a myth.
Less than 10,000 total hate crimes of any kind in an entire year, in a country of over 300 million people? Only 7,330 known hate crime offenders?
That means that hate crimes are a drop in the bucket. They are the least of our problems.
The two-thousandths of one percent (.002%) of Americans who committed hate crimes against anyone in 2006, including Protestants (35 complete losers) clearly need help.
While we're playing around with numbers I have one final factoid for the Taser Death Squad Hysterical Society.
There have been 16 taser related deaths in Canada over the last four years.
That works out to 4 instances per year... which, my paranoid friends, is statistically insignificant.
Employing exactly the same analysis, Neo would like to point out that, sure, while just over 70 Canadian troops have lost their lives in Afghanistan, that's a drop in the bucket compared to Canada's population of over 33,000,000, so, really, will all you "statistically insignificant" war widows and grieving mothers and heartbroken orphans just quit your pathetic, snivelly whining and shut the fucking hell up about it, fer Chrissake!?!?
If you have a problem with that, I'm sure you can find Neo here. You should probably knock loudly -- he might not be answering the door for the next little while.
