Wasn't "something done" about the man who murdered Jo Cox?

The point being that there are criminal laws available to deal with criminal acts.

He did not develop his criminal mindset without help. Should we not be addressing the culture in which these things are flourishing?

Of course we should. We should be alert to radicalisation wherever it may occur. We should be wary of anyone who says that the risk of radicalisation only exists in some minorities, and we should be prepared to confront those who would use issues like this inflame hatred.

But just as with Islam, we should keep a sense of perspective. Where people are just crying manbabies, we should say so.

But they are not just crying manbabies. They go away and cry to their manbaby friends in their manbaby echo-chamber and make themselves riotously angry.

Correct, and that's why I made my other comments in that post.
