Two people are dead and dozens injured after a person operating a white van drove it onto the sidewalk and plowed down pedestrians in the Las Ramblas historic district of Barcelona, Spain, Thursday evening, according to multiple reports.

Sky News reported the attack is being investigated as an act of terrorism. Reports said two armed men had taken hostages in a restaurant, but it’s unclear whether that incident is connected to the van attack.

Graphic videos on Twitter show people lying on the ground along the block near Placa Catalunya where the incident took place.

It’s unknown whether the driver is in police custody, on the loose, or has taken hostages.

    I call them sand niggers, for which our compliant media no doubt censures me more harshly than they censure religiously motivated murder.

    May Allah burn in hell.

    Have the DemonRATs taken their show on the road?

    It won’t be long when the people we have here from uncivilized places of the world will perform this same destruction in our streets. I don’t know why they would do that when they are so well taken care of compared to where they were originally from. I guess evil don’t care, that is why it is evil…

      Take a look at Detroit. It’s here.

        They were planted in major Democrat areas and many work at our big airports .

    Isolation and containment worked against Communism during the Cold War and is the only strategy that will work against Islam and the leftist Communist movement now growing in the USA. Communism has always failed and Islam has been at war with the entire non Islamic world since it was created. Allowing both to exist in America and Europe is only going to lead to more terror, and destruction of nations.

      AMEN, Mr./Ms. Hayes



    Refugees and Illegals are bringing this same way of life to YOU.

      I want to know when the EU governments will allow their citizens to own and use firearms for self protection? How many more innocents will need to be slaughtered by these whacko’s that they have welcomed with open arms?

      1. MARLENE HESSLER says:

        Good question.

        When guns are outlawed, only the outlaws have guns.

        1. Art Tafil says:

          I hate to burst your bubble naive lady BUT, too many outlaws have weapons and our law enforcement personnel can’t deal with all the Let and Right BS to put an end to this. The answer is You defend yourself (within the boundaries of the law). It is entirely possible to do so. I carry (with a concealed permit). I have had to draw my weapon to diffuse a situation. Restraint must be exercised when doing this. The person that I had to do this to was a D.A. he brought a knife to a gunfight! Who said outlaws were bright. I am a former active duty Marine Officer and YES, I have had to kill people while in Vietnam in the 60’s. If it’s a life and death decision involving my family or myself, I won’t hesitate to pull the trigger. If the situation degenerates to that point, you have to make the choice, him or me.

          1. MARLENE HESSLER says:

            No bubble here.

            I agree.

            I support the 2nd Amendment.

            Not only for dealing with the criminals, but when flakes get political power they should not have.

            We cannot be a nation of sheep.

          2. Art Tafil says:

            I applaud you Ms. Hessler!

        2. Retired says:

          That is what is happening in the EU .

      2. MARLENE HESSLER says:

        Having lived and worked in Germany for awhile, got to know some of the locals pretty well.

        They have a different way of thinking. WWI and WWII are still heavily on their minds. They are extremely heavily taxed for their socialist programs and they are still paying reparations to EVERY JEW THAT SURVIVED. That’s right, each and every one of them gets a monthly check, not a small one. And, those costs will continue as long as any are still alive. In fact, there are groups that are trying to force them to pay the children of those survivors for the rest of their lives.

        So, they don’t have a lot of eagerness to fight much of anything.

        1. Retired says:

          How can they fight with the way their hand were tied behind the back with the treaty signed at the end of the War , if they speak out against something it’s you are a Nazi . Merkel dances to the tune of the UN who shoved the refugees on them just like Obama did .

            And, it’s more.

            Even in 2000, my last year there, a couple generations had virtually stopped reproducing. The population was, and is, in decline. The government subsidizes reproduction. A monthly stipend to encourage children. Still the people are so burdened with taxes that they give that up.

            So, the REFUGEE problem was already a problem at that time. US military bases warned us about the ones to avoid before 2000.

            The REFUGEES were encouraged as CHEAP LABOR. Sound familiar????? Like Illegals and refugees here.

            There is nothing so expensive as cheap labor.

            And, it’s getting very difficult to find a German in Germany. Soon the country will look totally middle eastern. Butt ugly.

            No more the tall, really blonde, really blue eyed. No more the work ethic, the engineering abilities.

            Replaced by the ENTITLED, the WANNABEs, the GIMMES.

            Their problem started with importing Turks because Germans like the French felt to good to do menial work and that started in the 70s .

          3. MARLENE HESSLER says:

            I don’t know about the ‘too good to do menial work’.

            I can tell you that I live not far from Lakewood, NJ, otherwise called ‘Little Israel’.

            The residents there expect each family to produce a child a year. Should make naming them easy. Just 2000, 2001,2002 and so forth.

            They hire loads of illegals to do their menial labor, housekeeping, childcare, and construction.

            When I first moved here, went to the post office there and didn’t wan to get out of the car as it was knee deep in illegals (cheap labor).

            Then they built a station for ‘day laborers’ aka illegals.

            I got that from people in Europe . Isn’t that part of Jersey the extension of NY ????

        2. Art Tafil says:

          Ms. Hessler,

          From what I see in the ultra-left BS news, (theirs as well as ours), The German people appear to be about to get rid of Angela Merkel. She’s about as useless as Barack Obama was (if that’s humanly possible). Refugees are one thing, Muslims that are brainwashed by the Koran and the teachings of the Pedophile Mohammed have no place in a non-Muslim country. They have and have had the ability to overthrow Assad’s regime for many years now. Instead of blowing themselves up and killing “Infidels” do the world a favor and do it to Assad!

          1. MARLENE HESSLER says:

            I agree with most of what you say. The exception is whether schmerkel Merkel is on her way out. Unfortunately, there are articles that differ on her being on her way out.

            She should be for sure.

    2. Retired says:

      I am surprised they have not come out to blame Trump for what happened , the media is slipping .
