Nine conclusions not to draw from the Paris attacks

A huge number of nonsense goes around after atrocities like those in Paris. The media and social media are full of them. I thought it might be helpful to list the worst.

  1. ‘This attack has nothing to do with Islam’: obviously not true.See here.
  2. Islam means peace’: Very obviously not true. Incidentally the word actually means ‘submission’. Again see here.
  3. ‘This attack was an attack on Islam’: No. It was an attack on the people of Paris who were going to watch a football match or a concert or eating in a restaurant.

An excellent list from Douglas Murray, do read the rest.

    As the conquest of Europe continues not only will the actual number of terror sympathizers increase, but they will also increase as a percentage of the total Muslim population of Europe. In other words as they gain success, allegiance to the kaffir will diminish, “moderates” will be “radicalized”.

    It’s not too late to invoke martial law, round up and deport our intern the usual suspects.

    Witnesses – including Britons and some who survived by playing dead – told in chilling detail how extremists with Kalashnikovs shot people in wheelchairs first.

      NOT “extremists”, plain old pisslamic koranimals. STOP feeding the bs excuses for these murderous barbarians.

    FBI: Chattanooga shooter’s motive may never be public

    “We’re still trying to make sure we understand Abdulazeez, his
    motivations and associations, in a really good way,” FBI Director James
    “Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez was a homegrown violent extremist”

    First of all, in order to have a meaningful discussion about this horror, (if such is at all possible), please stop referring to these monsters as ‘people’. They may have human form, but they are devoid of the emotions and feelings that one usually associates with humankind. What kind of human being (or animal for that matter) is more than willing to sacrifice its children on the altar of death in order to satisfy a sick dictate disguised as “religion”?

    Why is this happening? If I were religious (I am resolutely secular), I might say that we have displeased G-d and he is now punishing us for our transgressions. Perhaps. As a secularist, I prefer to think that the world works best if there is a balance between opposites. When that balance is upset, disease or mayhem results, So, for me, the question is: how do we restore the balance? Is such a Herculean feat even possible?

    The apologists are going into full swing and trying to pass the buck as usual.

    27% plus or minus 5-10% may not be a majority, but it is still an extremely concerning number…

    I have a left of centre buddy how gave me a speech on how Mo terrorists will leave Canada alone as a show of gratitude for PM TrueDope letting in their co-religionists as refugees – as soon as he started spouting off said nonsense I ended the conversation.
    How emasculated we have become in the West. It’s 1939 all over again only this time we are appeasing while the Islamo-Nazis have invaded their neighbors and are staging terrorist attacks on the West. We’ve already had our Pearl Harbour with 911 and still a feeble response at best from the West.
    It’s time for France to invoke Article 5 of the NATO charter – let’s see pretty boy Turdeau get out of that pledge. I also want to see what Turkey does.

      Gee wilikers if one of my buddies started spouting off like that he’d get a big punch in the mouth to bring him out of it. I was never bullied physically or verbally for I had a rapid solution at hand that always worked. There are just not enough leftists getting punched in their big fat sanctimony spewing mouth’s.

    I was actually coming on here to comment on an article about something, and here it is number 6 on this list (plays into the hands of ISIS). I have found it fascinating watching this grow over the last 24 hours or so into the new common knowledge we all should have. More and more people are posting comments like this as if it is something they have believed forever, even though it was not a common truth even a few weeks ago.
    Amazing study on group-think.
