In response to the massive terrorist attack in Paris last week, in which #NotAllMuslims murdered 129 people at the suggestion of Allah, U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama said the following:
This is an attack not just on Paris, it’s an attack not just on the people of France, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share.
You see, humanity has “universal values.” Every single person on the planet shares certain values. Anything that attacks those values is an attack on humanity itself, so naturally, we all recoil from it.
As usual, Obama is absolutely right. Ece Toksabay, Reuters:
Turkish fans booed during the minute’s silence for the victims of the Paris attacks before their national team drew 0-0 with Greece in a friendly international soccer game on Tuesday.
Istanbul fans boo minute of silence for Paris attacks, chant "Allahu akbar" before Turkey vs Greece soccer friendly

As always, this evidence is anecdotal and must be dismissed. There are something like 1.57 billion Muslims on the planet. Do you really think they could all fit into one soccer arena? Duh.
What are you gonna do, teabaggers, build a soccer stadium the size of Texas? Not only would that be an insult to both soccer and Texas, it would be highly impractical. Just think of how many ticket windows you would need to build. How many falafel vendors you would need to hire. The people in the top few thousand rows wouldn’t even be able to see the field, let alone the players. And let’s not even get started about the smell.
Sorry, racists, but the constant, repetitive, entirely predictable actions of a small percentage of the global Muslim population have absolutely nothing to do with anything. Unless every single one of them kills you, none of them have killed you. To believe anything else is bigotry.
Now stop whining and just submit already.
