New York Times: Bathtubs More Dangerous Than Terrorism

Americans who fear they might die while taking a bath are more rational than Americans who fear a terrorist attack, according to the New York Times.

“Americans are more likely to die in a car crash, drown in a bathtub or be struck by lightning than be killed by a terrorist,” wrote the Times’ Peter Baker on Monday. “The Islamic State does not pose an existential threat to the United States.

    When that worthless scumbag in Ferguson got blown away for assaulting Darren Wilson and trying to take his gun, the New York Times did everything it could to persuade us that white cops are an existential threat to all black Americans.

    So as long as muslims slaughter less Americans via jihad than those that die from bath tub accidents that the media will give jihadists a pass.

    I’ve heard muslims cite the gun deaths and car accident deaths per year as yardstick for tolerating Jihad slaughters.
    How about just stop killing people.

      What happened to the leftie justification of ‘if it saves just one life’?

      Lying with statistics! They always say death by terrorism is minuscule in the U.S. But they never mention that death by terrorism is increasing globally, they also don’t mention the number of terror related arrests (attacks prevented) in the U.S. has only been increasing.

      At some point things will break, security services will become saturated/overwhelmed, and attacks won’t be stopped.

      All of this is hidden behind the misleading quoted number of terrorism deaths in the U.S. in 2015.

    Oh, thank you Peter Baker. I feel so much better now.

    100% of the people who get killed by terrorists would disagree

  • Xavier

    I choose whether to get into the tub, moron.
    But I’m sure you fucking liberals want to decide for me.

      You probably have a fire extinguisher in your house too … you paranoid fire-hater!

  • What a bunch of buffoons. The reason why there are less terrorist attacks than there are bathtub accidents is because Governments have spent billions, if not trillions, of dollars to both prevent and fight terrorist attacks. Governments have spent exactly zero dollars on preventing bathtub accidents. Btw, the former is a crime against humanity, the latter is an unfortunate mishap.

    • moraywatson

      It’s a conspiracy! I just knew it! And the government mandated water softener just makes the tub even more slippy !

      • occupant 9

        Bingo! … And the devious counter is flower-shaped sticky-backed rubber tub stickers. Get a grip and don’t slip.

        Don’t be a slippery statistic.

        • moraywatson

          Yeah but they make the tub difficult to scrub. Every household should receive free government paid bathroom cleaning services. It’s for the children – it’s worth it if saves just one life.

  • Spatchcocked

    Dear Carlos…..let me help.
    I may break my neck in the tub but I won’t have my neck CHOPPED in the tub.

  • Hard Little Machine

    You’re about 15x more likely to die from heart disease than a gun.

    Moderate Muslims are more prolific and plentiful than Caucasian rapists.

  • moraywatson

    …and yet we’re not afraid of taking baths or driving our cars…why is that?…oh baths and cars are not trying to kill us to attain a totalitarian political ambition…I see…

    • UCSPanther

      I ain’t afraid of firearms either, like the New York Slimes wants us to be.

      • mobuyus

        I will not even fear fear and I ain’t scared of gay terrorist Goat-humping goofs. Woe very deep woe to any of the above fore-mentioned that cross’s my path. I will open a very large can of wupp-ass on em.

    Diptheria is really rare; why do they waste all of that money on vaccinations?

    • mobuyus

      When islam 9nadvertantly triumphs some where and the fly becomes the national bird diphtheria as well as anal gonorrhea rates sky-rocket. The left will however do away with vaccination regimes as they are a construct of a white patriarchic colonial misogynistic heterodoxy that is homophobic and islamophobic to boot.

  • Shebel

    Can we vaccinate the youth from the plague of Islam?

  • Ed

    On any other issue, the Times is all for banning, even if it “only saves one child.”

    • mobuyus

      The left is obsessed with others children.

  • mobuyus

    The New York times needs to slip and fall, crack it’s empty liberal head and drown in the bath tub then fuck off and die.

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    This just in: Americans more likely to be struck by lightning than to be reading the New York Times.

    Is this not the same rag that claimed the Holocaust was not taking place when it was and that Stalin was great and the Soviet Union a utopia? Yes, I believe it is, so when did it acquire any credibility?
