Who To Blame, Other Than The Actual Terrorists, When The Terrorists Attack

When it comes to making everyone apologize for the acts of a few extremists, it's hard to know who to force to apologize. Thankfully "The Daily Show" has cleared that up.

Who To Blame, Other Than The Actual Terrorists, When The Terrorists Attack

A lot of people have demanded a lot of things of different communities when it comes to condemning acts of violence. When Ferguson happened, all black people were expected to condemn everyone who looted. When the Charlie Hebdo attack happened, all Muslim people were expected to condemn all extremists. And when Timothy McVeigh attacked Oklahoma City, all white people were expected to condemn him. No, wait, that last one never happened. Anyways, "The Daily Show" has a pretty profoundly witty system to determine who has to condemn what.

Here's the thing though. Condemnation of terror and violence should be a given. Do you know anyone who applauds violence and terrorism? Have you ever met them? I have friends I've spoken with in every community (even some pretty radical ones), and not a single one has ever been like, "Yeah, 'bout time someone killed some people!"


The next time you see a person who has the same genetic or religious makeup as a perpetrator of horrific violence, I recommend assuming they are a normal human who has no connection to violence and who thinks murder is bad. Because that's basically everyone. Unless you are in a terrorist meeting, then obviously, you aren't reading this anyway because you hate freedom.

Terrorism — a thing only terrorists like.

Brittany Kinley, a mother from Mansfield, Texas, had a hilarious mom fail her and she's chalking it up to being just another crazy thing that happened in 2020.

When Kinley filled out the order form for her son Mason's kindergarten class pictures, there was an option to have his name engraved into the photos. But Kinley wasn't interested in having her son's name on the photos so she wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" on the box.

Well, it appears as though she should have left the box blank because the computer or incredibly literal human that designed the photographs wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" where mason's name should be.

James Taylor is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, with five Grammy awards, more than 100 million albums sold and an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame under his belt.

A new video of him casually singing with his family from their home in Montana just oozes wholesomeness in a soul-stirring three-part harmony. With simple, pure musicianship, Taylor plays guitar and sings lead vocals while his wife Kim and son Henry add harmony on his song "Now You Can Close Your Eyes." Originally released on Taylor's 1971 album Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon, it's an absolutely gorgeous gift to us during this uncertain time.

In December 2018, The Utah Department of Transportation opened the largest wildlife overpass in the state, spanning 320 by 50 feet across all six lanes of Interstate 80.

Its construction was intended to make traveling through the I-80 corridor in Summit County safer for motorists and the local wildlife.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that there were over 100 animal incidents on the interstate since 2016, giving the stretch of highway the unfortunate nickname of "Slaughter Row."
