Sydney Cafe Murders: The Ugly True Story Behind The #Illridewithyou Twitter Campaign

So it would appear that the most important take-home message on social media about yesterday’s siege at the Lindt cafe in Sydney is not the fact that two innocent people – barrister Katrina Dawson and cafe manager Tori Johnson – were murdered by an Islamist gunman under the banner of the Islamic State flag.

It’s that lots of left-leaning Australians are today feeling really good about themselves because they’ve shown just how much they care about the plight of the real victims of this crime. No, again, not Katrina and Tori: they’re just collateral damage. The real victims – at least in Twitter hashtag terms – are all those Muslims in Australia who’ve been made to feel slightly uncomfortable as a result of this latest atrocity committed in the name of the Religion of Peace (TM).

    #I`ll ride with you.if you promise not to rape or behead me

    • Exile1981

      Here is the google translation of that phrase into arabic – in case you need to tell him in a language he may listen too.

      وأنا سوف تركب مع تسجل دخولك وعد بعدم اغتصاب أو قطع رأس لي

    • Hard Little Machine

      I’ll ride with you, and yes that IS a grenade and a battle rifle. ya ya alawah akbar to you too.

      • winniec

        And they say to us, “We’ll ride ON YOU as our beasts of burden after we take over the West.”

        • Hard Little Machine

          They’ll find that hard to do on fire.

      There’s a hashtag for that!

  • Hard Little Machine

    I agree that grownups are grownups. If this is the country Australia wants, so be it. Just like the Iranians or the Saudis or the Goatsodomites or anyone else. Let’s rip a page from the progressive playbook and ‘good on ya mate!’ after all who are WE to decry the mass murder and atrocities of their quaint customs and mores? If Bartertown is where they see their future, well ok then. Get your chain mail bikinis and sign up for Thunderdome. We’ll be over here watching the fires from space.

      Know what you mean. This is why I own land north of Parry Sound; my own little 100 acre forest. As of this summer it is fully self sufficient. Plenty of popcorn and beer for watching the downfall of civilization remotely.

    From the photo, once again confirming that liberalism is a mental disorder.

      It is the same thing when people depend from welfare like you”A mental disorder”.

        They let you out of jail again there Pedro?

        • Exile1981

          He always posts just after the power comes on in Caracas. The city power came back on at 4:55 PM VST (yes Venezuela created it’s own time zone), just in time for people to head home from work and try and cook supper. he posted at 4:59 PM VST.

          • Clausewitz

            Thanks for the info. I just figured he spent a long time in jail after they shut down the cocaine factories he works at.

          • FactsWillOut

            Cocaine built lots of hotels in Miami until the feds stopped that gravy train in 1986, with their obscene money-laundering laws.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            I’m sure the skyrocketing murder rate and the shootouts with machine guns in some of Miami’s malls had nothing to do with that crackdown.

          • Clink9

            Say hello to my little friend.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Welcome back Maurixio, we have missed you.
        I have a joke for you!

        Q: How do most Puerto Rican girls catch syphilis?
        A: From their fathers!

        • FactsWillOut

          Q: How many commies does it take to change a light bulb?
          A: None. They just sit in the dark and blame it on the capitalist oppressors.

          • Frau Katze

            Good one!

        • dingo ate my baby

          how do you circumsize a puerto rican?
          punch his moms jaw shut

  • FactsWillOut

    The important thing is that our diversity wasn’t also a casualty.

    • Frau Katze

      That seems to be the most important thing in the world to these idiots.

  • winniec

    Are the Muslimahs who take off the veil ASHAMED of the terrorists? Are they annoyed that people disapprove of jihad? Are they angry that someone assumes their silence about jihad means APPROVAL of jihad? Are these Muslimahs able to use reason?
    Are these Muslimahs considering the problem may be Islam? Do they know that Islam teaches warfare against disbelievers? Do they know that is the teaching of Mohammed? I’m betting they do know that.

    For all your hatred, you’re just so powerless against the simple human decency which Tessa has triggered.

    Consider “humanity” sometime. Let go of your preconceptions. Humans are flawed,
    and that includes Tessa, and so yes, you can find examples of her lashing out in anger at that which weighs on her. But that just means she _also_ needs support and some understanding every so often. And despite that, she just did a most wonderful thing, and turned the looming feeling of fear and hatred around Sydney into something amazingly positive for millions of people, something which is restoring faith in humanity all around the world, something which Australia is being lauded for. If _she_ with all her flaws can do that, consider what _you_ in all your perfection could do. Work toward positive change. Make a difference.

    Unclench. Breathe. There really _can_ be good intentions, and decency. Let go of your anger. Accept. Getting worked up is not solving anything.

    • FactsWillOut

      Accept getting killed by some Muslim maniac.

    • FactsWillOut

      Give a NAZI a ride today. We’ve persecuted those people long enough.

      Mass-murderers are people too! **sniff**

      They’re only human, just like the rest of us, after all!

    • Right. Because when a Muslim fanatic murders two innocent people, we should all focus on the completely non-existent anti-Muslim backlash. That’s healthy. That’s sane. That’s “positive change”.

      It’s such contemptible narcissism.

      Here, read some Mark Steyn. Maybe you’ll gain an IQ point or two.

      • Frau Katze

        Nice response!

        • Thanks. To quote a cab driver from Seinfeld, smugness is not an attractive quality. And that is one smug b*tch.

    • You’re such a vacuous twit that you’re unable to recognize let alone defend yourself against those who would do you harm. That’s quite an accomplishment Sweety.

      I have no desire to join you and your empty headed brethren in mutual suicide. Tessa built a lie, you are welcome to buy it.

      Moral and cultural relativism may have an upside after all in the cull it will inevitably inspire.

    • Clausewitz

      Blah blah blah blah. Sorry, your kind have gone to that well way too many times. Most of the real world has just tuned you out, and that’s why you hate us and act like the intellectual infants you are.

    Is it me or does she have the beginnings of a forked tongue? Conspiracy theorists… we have our lizard people!

    • She does at that!

    • Rosenmops

      She looks like she should be in a padded cell in an asylum.

    ride with you? I thought you said ride over you. my bad. wait one, Mohammad, while I back the Leopard 2 up….

    How odd that muslims worry about a non-existing Backlash while non-muslims suffer the islamic Forelash to attack us now to counter future backlash by their paranoia and mental illness.

    • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

      As I like to say, a Muslim’s thin skin doesn’t allow him or her to handle attention and criticism, and a Kafir’s thin skin doesn’t allow them to survive bullets and blades.
