The donkey mishap and resultant fatalities show a primitive quarrelsome culture coexisting on earth with our own like lumbering cavemen. Why do we let libs import these barbarians with an 8th century belief system and silently let their "all cultures are equal" Newspeak BS stand so as to avoid being called racist by obvious idiots? Lib invented PC shackles need to be broken and their cockamamie ideas held up to richly deserved ridicule. Never have so many been governed by the so stupid without force.
