Following is one man’s strong opinion on the state of the world since the merciless slaughter of innocent men, women and children was unleashed by radical Islamists. Bill Muehlenberg of Culture Watch points out that more and more people are becoming frustrated with so-called world leaders who continually make excuses for what they deem the “religion of peace.” He laments that after umpteen terrorist attacks our “leaders” sit idly by and do nothing. And by doing nothing they are aiding and abetting the terrorists.
Bill included an excerpt from a piece by English commentator Katie Hopkins who clearly has had enough of all the PC nonsense. Hopkins wants action. She demands solutions — now! “This is not sustainable,” she writes. “We are not bowling pins. Ready to be knocked down and replaced by the naive, the believers in multiculturalism. Imagining there is tolerance. Your hashtags and pretty pictures might make you feel better. But they solve nothing. You are self-medicating on nonsense. We need action.”
So with this background in mind, listen to what Bill Muehlenberg has to say about the great lengths the mainstream media will go in their attempt to exonerate terrorists:
There is only one thing as predictable as the regular Islamic jihadist attacks, and that is the brainless wonders in the West who defend to the death Islam and make excuses for the terrorists. It happens every time. Now with 300 casualties in Nice, France, we see this all happening again in horrific style.
I had the extreme misfortune of watching various news sites for quite a few hours yesterday, and it certainly was maddening. How many times was some ‘expert’ dragged up to tell us why Islam had nothing to do with this terrible massacre, and we need instead to deal with the ‘real’ causes.
With numerous children among the dead and injured, and a guy named Mohamed born in Tunisia responsible for the carnage, we have all the usual suspects – various eggheads, commentators, intellectualoids, talking heads, etc – coming out assuring us that once again this has nothing to do with a religion beginning with ‘I’ and ending with ‘slam’.
Instead we must understand the poor chap. You see, he did not fit in, he may have been poor, he may have been undereducated, he was not white in an ‘obviously racist’ white culture, he may have had various grievances, he may have been poorly potty trained, etc. You name it, any excuse will do.
Yes poor guy – he just did not fit in. Why he did not just return to his Muslim country of origin if he hates things so much in the free West is never asked. He is simply justified and excused and exonerated for doing what he did because of not fitting in – this is the standard secular left knee-jerk reaction and part of its narrative.
Um, I have been unemployed, as have millions of other Christians, Jews, Buddhists, etc. And we have also not always fit in well to the surrounding culture. We have sometimes had poor educational opportunities, etc. But we never seem to read about such folks getting into a truck and ploughing down innocent men, women and children. Or flying planes into buildings. Or beheading others.
Not only do these lefties find plenty of reasons why someone becomes a bad egg – and it never has anything to do with an archaic, bloodthirsty political ideology – but they will immediately make a false moral equivalence. Christianity has bad eggs too, they intone like a mantra. And in that case, it WAS religion that caused it!
And then we get leaders like the French Prime Minister saying “France is going to have to live with terrorism” and various others like some of the Greens basically saying if we just showed some love to the terrorists, it will all work out. Sure, maybe if we all just hop into bed with John and Yoko and sing “Give peace a chance”, that should stop the jihadists right?
And then we have all the usual scapegoating: forget about the ideology. We need more gun control. Never mind that France already has very strict gun control, and the weapon of choice in this case was a very large 17-ton truck. But judging by the headlines of the major MSM outlets we had trucks killing people, not Islamic terrorists.
One can already imagine the preferred solutions of most Western leaders: time for some strict truck control. If we can’t ban all trucks, we can at least ask why such high-powered trucks are allowed in the hands of ordinary citizens. Time to get real on truck violence.
It is oh so predictable – and infuriating. Thankfully I am not alone in really getting tired of all this nonsense. Others are also becoming increasingly frustrated with our dhimmi leaders who sit by and do nothing – thus aiding and abetting the terrorists. Andrew Bolt was forthright here…. Continue reading
