I have purely a sporting interest in this Charlie Hebdo incident at the moment. You all know where I stand on the issue of Islam, and I’m correct while most others are still catching up. So until they do, I have to amuse myself as I can.
As I said, I have merely a sporting interest in the Islamo-fascist event in France. It’s been said (and not by me) that terrorism is just a price that civilization has to pay…sort of a tax. You don’t like paying it, but in a world this immense, and with so many people and different interests in it, it’s inevitable.
So it is easy to write-off even 2000 people murdered by Islamo-fascists in 911. It’s easy to write-off as a “cost of living” assessment when some Jews are butchered somewhere in the world, or a few hundred Christians are slaughtered. It’s just a sort of perverse, but unavoidable, tax on existence.
And for those who hold multiculturalism as their religious-like worldview, this tax is easier to rationalize than facing the fact that the basic tenet of your belief system is false…and not just false but at least slightly evil.
But now that some journalists have been butchered, could we actually see outrage that not only lasts but leads to attitudinal changes that then lead to policy changes? I doubt it, but it’s certainly possible.
Journalists are amongst the most narcissistic, egotistical, and blinkered people on the planet. You may kill Christians. After all, because of the Inquisition, they had it coming. You may kill Jews (just because they are Jews, and it’s open-season on Jews in the West…although blinkered liberal Jews don’t seem to have gotten the message regarding who their real friends are). And you may kill civilians in bunches. All of this can easily be rationalized as a civilizational tax — or as a perfect fit in the Cultural Marxist theme that Muslims are only “acting out” against the big, bad West who (as we all know) is oppressive to innocent “people of color” in the third world.
But kill not just one journalist but a near dozen of them? Could such “Progressive” journalists (as almost all of them are) take time out from hating “the rich,” from despising white people, Christians, Jews, heterosexuals, America, capitalism, and The West to find a little hate for their real enemy?
If I were giving odds in Vega, it would be 3 to 1 against any kind of sustained change in the leading Progressive opinion-makers. But there is that one in three chance. There is a chance that all the college-indoctrinated fools who learned that Islam supposedly at one point saved the West during the Dark Ages will come to understand that Islam’s intention toward the West (and everyone else) has only ever been to conquer it and subdue it. They may finally come to understand, as I do, that Islam is not a religion. It is a socio-political-religious movement that has more similarity to Nazism than some run-of-the-mill religion such as Hinduism or Shintoism.
But don’t hold your breath.
