The Real Victims

Posted in Politics, Society on March 25th, 2017

A Muslim jihadi, Khalid Masood, enacted a terrorist attack in London that killed four pedestrians and injured about 50 others as he mowed down members of the public with a car on Westminster Bridge, on Wednesday, March 22, 2017. Masood then crashed his SUV into the railings in front of Parliament Yard before bursting through the gate to the Palace of Westminster with two large knives where he fatally stabbed an unarmed police constable. But, of course the five dead and the forty injured aren’t the real victims.

Yeah sure - The Real Victims are the Muslims
As We Can See, The Real Victims Are The Muslims

No, as we can see from stark fear and concern on this Muslim bint’s face as she chats away on her phone while passing Brits trying to tend to one of Masood’s wounded, the real victims are the Muslim communities inside England’s borders.

London’s Metropolitan Police Service’s Assistant Commissioner for Specialist Operations, Mark Rowley made that eminently and immediately clear in his statement to the British people.

We must recognize now that our Muslim communities will feel anxious at this time, given the past behavior of extreme right wing groups, and we will continue to work with all community leaders over the coming days.

— Asst. Commissioner Mark Rowley

Of course, there’s actually no record of any attacks by “extreme right wing groups” in England. They’ve probably “said mean things” and they certainly voted to have Britain leave the EU, but actual violence on their part seems to be statistically nonexistent. Not that this lack of evidence will affect the narrative. It seems to felt to be necessary to promulgate the idea that Westerners are always just a hair’s breadth away from enacting anti-Muslim pogroms.

Americans vs. Liberals

Posted in Humor, Politics, Society on March 15th, 2017

There are a lot of differences between Americans and Liberals.

If an American doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.
If a Liberal doesn’t like guns, ze wants all guns outlawed.

If an American is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
If a Liberal is a vegetarian, ze wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If an American is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If an Liberal is homosexual, ze demands legislated respect.

If an American is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
If a Liberal is down-and-out ze wonders who is going to take care of him.

If an American doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels.
If a Liberal doesn’t like a talk show host, ze demands that they be shut down.

If an American is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church.
If a Liberal is a non-believer, ze wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

If an American decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
If a Liberal decides he needs health care, ze demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If an American reads this, he’ll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
If a Liberal reads this, ze’ll delete, block, or report it because ze’s “offended.”

Yes, there’s a lot of differences and those differences are fundamental, incontrovertible, intractable, and unlikely to be resolved through any peaceful means.

A Day Without…

Posted in Politics, Society on March 11th, 2017

A Day Without what exactly?My fellow Americans, in case you didn’t notice it, and you probably didn’t aside from word of it filling up your social media feeds, we recently had #ADayWithoutWomen. This protest reasonably closely followed the equally unremarkable and largely unremarked #ADayWithoutImmigrants. In both cases the response by America at large was a non-response. We, as a nation, weren’t really bothered and neither noticed nor cared.

Not that this should in any way be surprising. In all likelihood they got the idea from the Blacks, who periodically try to have A Day Without Black People – #hashtagged various things like #BoycottBlackFriday, #BlackFridayBlackout, and #NotOneDime – where they try and fail to make an impact by not buying anything from Whites on Black Friday.

Frankly, these attempts reach a pinnacle – or maybe nadir, depending on your outlook – irony that is rarely achieved. In trying to show their worth and power, all they’ve managed to do is show their irrelevance to the nation as a whole.
