The smug nonsense of ‘What about Ankara?’

After the Paris attacks in November, the conscience of social media – its perpetually indignant, self-righteous class – tweeted that we hadn’t showed comparable or sufficient pity for the unfortunates of Lebanon, who had also recently been subjected to terrorist attacks. This week, the moral indignants have stoked up a repeat moronic inferno, this time castigating us for showing solidarity with Belgium, but not Turkey.

‘Where was our cartoon for those who have died in Turkey at the hands of terrorists? Why didn’t Downing Street raise the Turkish flag after the atrocities in Ankara?’, writes Yasmin Ahmed in the Independent, a sentiment parroted by the usual cabal of shrill imbeciles.

    I’ll spell it out for the indignant. I don’t care about the dead in Turkey any more than I care about the dead in Iraq Afganistan or Pakistan, because they are not my people. I consider them all the enemy anyway, so why would I care if they die?

    Geography lesson. Turkey is NOT part of Europe

    The turk government and their military are cousins of isis and the syrian/iraqi ethnic turkmen.
    Spilling the blood of innocents in person or by proxy is nothing new to them.

    I Couldn’t care less for the turks. they seem to willingly embrace islamism and are happily destroying the civilized secular veneer left by ataturk. their friendly support of isis and the Erdogan families profiteering of ISIS oil should ,by its self preclude them from joining whats left of the Europe.Union. which i doubt will survive the coming civil war and islamic control.

    And if western governments DID acknowledge the victims of every muslim terrorist attack perpetrated in Muslim countries, these same Stupids would accuse western governments of “racism” for doing so.

    Muslim-on-muslim violence is characteristic of islamic culture, not exceptional. Everybody has noticed this. Denial is pointless.

    • I’ll show concern for the “Ankaras” when muslims stop celebrating the deaths of infidels.

    All good and well. However I loved the following article on Spiked regarding shiny pony shouting out that he’s a feminist.

    No one gives a shit when you inflict Muslim Terrorism upon yourself. There’s never any sympathy for self inflicted wounds.

    “Yasmin Ahmed”
