That’s the condition my condition is in, regarding the latest public atrocity in London. Just – numb. Sorry for the unfortunate victims, obligatory silent prayers for the dead … but it has all become a kind of dreadful routine. The next numbers in the grand atrocity calculus are the usual – the on-the-spot memorials of flowers, candles and teddy bears, the Book of Face meme to do something with your photo, the obligatory whines from the usual parties not to blame Islam (and the usual fears for an anti-Muslim backlash; although since there have hardly been significant non-fake incidents after the last couple of dozen or so public atrocities one wonders how long the usual parties can go on riding/flogging THAT particular pony), some heartbreaking stories about the victims, vows of eternal vigilance by the law-keeping and intelligence-supervising specialists … and then nothing much, until next time. I suppose this is what it’s like for Israelis; swab off the blood, fill in the divots, bury the victims and wait for the next high-velocity demonstration by representatives of the “Religion of Peace. ™

  1. My own feeling is one of vengeance. I no longer regard muslims as worthy of any rights or protections of western legal traditions. They have made it known that they are the enemy and I have taken note. The enemy does not get rights.

  2. “They have made it known that they are the enemy”
    One can say the same thing about their leftist friends.

  3. The lefties and their muzzie allies always worry about the “backlash” as if they can make sure it does not happen if they say something to shame everyone who thinks about vengeance. I agree with you Mr. Black. Unless the muslim congregations start publically stomping and turning in their crazies to the cops, they risk losing those rights inherent on residents of the US. I do not know if there are enough real men left in Europe to stop them.

    There’s damn good reason this happens more in Europe than here. 1) Their governments have allowed in more third world muzzie migrants per capita than we have and 2) that we have an armed populace with most states allowing conceal and carry, the response will be fast and fatal to the attackers. The Eurosheeple have allowed themselves to be disarmed. I hope enough wake up on both sides of the pond and stop this insanity.

  4. Carrying a pistol probably gives you little protection against a suicidally inclined driver of a large vehicle.

    Anyway, what I don’t want ever again to hear is the pathetic bombast about “they hate us because of our liberty”. They hate us for three reasons. First, because we are kaffirs: not followers of Allah. They don’t give a bugger how free we are, they hate us because we are secular or Christian, Hindu or Buddhist, and so forth.

    Secondly they hate us because we visit death and destruction on their countries or on their “muslim brothers”.

    Thirdly they hate us because they suspect we despise them.

  5. That policeman would have been better off if he had had a gun. As it was, that lack caused his death. The era of unarmed Bobbies should end now.

    Sgt Mom, I hope you are not offended by my theory posted above. I think there might be something to it.

  6. At this point, when it comes to Muslims, their symps, fellow-travelers and Quislings – all that I hear when they talk about religion of peace/not true Muzz/diversity&toleration is the whahhhwhawwwwhahhh sound effect of the adults talking in the old Peanuts animated series. Just noise.

    Mike K, very little offends me at this point. I was a college student a long time ago.

  7. Hate begat’s hate.

    The religions everywhere are slowly fading as they become irrelevant. The Muslims are perhaps the most in danger of watching their religion be made irrelevant soon, as they have the most distance between belief and the real world. All those immigrants are losing their identity slowly. As well the reason they are on the run is largely the west’s fault. Destroying Iraq as a functioning state, was just a station on the way. There are so many reasons for a young Muslim to fight these days.

    This has produced a lot of fury and the result we see every day. It will fade over time. The Russians at least have a plan and we’ll go forward, as we always do.

    Hate is not useful, that’s the main reason I despise it.

  8. Secondly they hate us because we visit death and destruction on their countries or on their “muslim brothers”.


    No we don’t. The result of the 9/11 attack was a multi-trillion dollar foreign aid expedition. We spent vast sums in both Afghanistan and Iraq- the latter despite their own vast wealth in the form of oil. Western governments agonize over every dead muslim, while remaining nastily indifferent when muslims murder Christians or enslave Yazidis. Muslims colonize the West, being rewarded with munificent welfare benefits, while Westerners in muzzie lands face savage discrimination or are simply killed. Korans are treated with reverence, while bibles are burned.

    I think they simply despise us, and figure they can just brush us aside, in our own countries.

    It remains to be seen if they are wrong.

  9. “That policeman would have been better off if he had had a gun.” Reports differ on whether he had a gun.

  10. “The result of the 9/11 attack was a multi-trillion dollar foreign aid expedition”: don’t be so daft, man.

  11. It sees the American people as a dim beast easily provoked to hateful rage. I think it’s quite obvious to the vast bulk of the American people that most recent acts of terrorism here and abroad are committed by Muslims and that most, the vast majority, of Muslims in this country and in the world do not commit or support the commission of such acts. It’s actually not too hard to keep these two ideas in your head at the same time: it just requires modest powers of observation.

  12. Dr. Ronald Schouten, an associate professor at Harvard Medical School who directs the Law & Psychiatry Service of the Massachusetts General Hospital, distinguishes between the “garden variety” liar, who lies to gain personal advantage, and the pathological one, whose lies are so unlikely that you can’t figure out why he’s lying. This latter breed is a narcissist, Schouten says, and he comes in two types: the one who lies to put himself in the best possible light, and the one who, like an entertainer, lies to gain and hold the attention of an audience, delighting in its reaction from one astonishment to the next.

  13. So – off-topic, passive-agressive and insulting. Winning combination, that.
    Goodbye, Sri. Any further comments from you will be edited amusingly.
