Do I need to actually post anything here?
Sure, not all muslims. But he was a muslim. He did shout allahu akbar. He did murder 84 people and wound dozens more. And he did do it in the name of his religion. As so many before have done, and more will yet do.
I’m distressed, because not only did it happen, but I am 100% sure that the regressive left will be leaving out pertinent details about this abominable act. It’s not that I want certain parts of it specifically played up for some sick political agenda, but that I know it will be modified for some equally sick political agenda.
For what it’s worth, my thoughts are with the people in France who were injured and killed, or knew and loved people who were injured and killed, by a religious extremist muslim terrorist.
If the mainstream government continues to remain paralyzed by self-guilt and fear of being seen as politically incorrect, then further and further right wing types will rise up to take advantage of these terror acts. And quite rightly so, as a government is supposed to care for the populace, so if it doesn’t, it needs to go. My only fear with such right wing reactionist agendas is the jingoism that comes with it.
What can be done? I don’t know. What I do know is that sticking with the leftist regressive self-flagellation is suicide as a society and a culture, and that’s unacceptable.
