The Times We Live In When Normal Is Wrong
The Times We Live In, When Normal Is Wrong

We, most assuredly sadly, live in an age where all that is not male, not White, and/or not heterosexual is held up as greatness and in which anything male, White, and/or heterosexual is decried as abhorrent or, at the very least, utterly unworthy of praise or recognition due to that very maleness, Whiteness, and/or heterosexuality.

And do be aware and assured that our domestic enemies whole issue with normal people is that they are still the majority and still exemplars of- and adherents to the long-standing, dominant culture in and of America.

As Should Be Expected…

South Carolina State FlagAs should be expected, I’m weighing in upon the killing of 9 Blacks and wounding of another in Charleston, SC’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church – often called by Blacks, “Mother Emanuel” – by Dylann Roof. As should also be expected by any and all who are familiar with me or Reflections From A Murky Pond, my take on the matter will follow the mainstream.

This is simply because something like Dylann Roof’s assault upon “Mother Emanuel” should have been expected to happen. Decades of law after law being enacted to demand preferential treatment for people having a “Protected Trait”; years and years of the Lamestream Media promulgating the thought that all Whites are both racists and somehow debtors to the “Black Community”; and the constant excuses made for the innumerable Blacks who riots and loot whenever they feel like guaranteed some sort of reprisal-based action would be committed by someone in America sometime. Obama’s and his boy, Holder’s consistent exacerbation of these things just accelerated things and brought the timeline forward.

Does this mean that I approve of- or condone Dylann Roof’s actions? No. In my opinion they were stupid and counterproductive. He killed 9 people for no good purpose and accomplished nothing by doing so that aids America in protecting herself.

Does this mean that I excuse his actions? No. I do understand his motivation and I do see a growing problem that is very much akin to the problem that Roof perceived. Yet, like all things, understanding does not necessarily provide excuse, since failure is failure and sinking into rage is rarely, if ever, excusable.

Relatively Offensive

Here in the Civilized World we’re repeatedly inundated by calls to not offend the Muslims, especially not to openly mock their cult or their cult’s prophet. This normally reoccurs whenever the Muslims respond to being offended with savage violence such as their Charlie Hebdo massacre.

Offended Muslims

Let us for a moment set aside the cowardly basis for these apologetics and calls for censorship and focus upon the core idea of the Muslims’ offense at such things. After all, the Dhimmis and Oikophobes who demand that we show respect for Islam and not mock the cult, its prophet, or adherents do have a point. Doing so greatly and dramatically offends the Muslims and goads a significant number of them to violence.

Consider This:

If the Muslims are that offended by such mockery that they have to resort to violence and/or lawfare to assuage their outrage, they have no business living in the Civilized World with its freedoms and pluralism. Simply and bluntly put, the Muslims are unfit for the West just as the West is unfit for the Muslims.
