A few people have been asking me these past few days, why I haven’t commented on the slaughter in Paris last Friday. The truth is I am weary of the whole situation. I remember feeling the same way in the late seventies and early eighties when the IRA were bombing the crap out of my original homeland Great Britain. The one major difference back then, was my fellow countryman seemed to have more of a united feeling that we would endure everything the terrorists would throw at our country and would never give in to their bombs and bullets.
In this current war our left leaning leaders, including Obama and Justin, will not even call the barbarians out for what they actually are. Namely Islamic fundamentalist terrorists, who follow a religious doctrine with its roots firmly set in the eighth century. I am so thoroughly tired of the usual pacifist bromides and the endless candle lit vigils, every time these psychopathic killers slaughter innocent people going about their daily business, that do absolutely nothing, except make those who are participating feel a little better about things.
I wonder what was going through the mind of the guy while he was playing his awful piano version of “Imagine”, outside the Bataclan Theater the other evening. I also wonder about all those thousands of people that shared that video on Facebook and Twitter. What immediately comes to mind is that none of these people actually get it. The only thing the head choppers and homicide bombers can “Imagine” is how many infidels they can slaughter before they enter paradise and meet their 72 virgins.
The second thing floating around the interwebs that really pissed me off, the last few days, was someone had reinvented that tired old peace sign from the sixties in the shape of an Eiffel Tower in a circle. You peaceniks can desire and yearn for as much peace as you want, but if an ISIS lunatic decides to walk into your local coffee shop with a Kalashnikov and a homicide belt, I’m not sure singing “Give peace a chance” will do much to stop him.
The slaughter we all witnessed in Paris is merely the tip of the iceberg, because the one common thread I keep seeing after most of these brutal attacks, is when the security services and the media talk to any of the terrorists neighbors, the comment is usually “he seemed like such a nice person, always friendly and quite normal”. Which brings me to our federal government’s insistence to carry on full steam ahead with bringing in 25,000 Syrian refugees before the end of the year. We all know that Justin will break a few of his election promises, why can’t this be his first? The reason is simple he and his government are way too arrogant to admit that this timeline and course of action was wrong in the first place. Especially wrong now that we find out one of the homicide bombers at the Stade de France, was actually a refugee from Syria. I was reading the other day that when Islamic State finally overthrew the Assad regimes forces in Raqqa, they inherited 5,000 freshly minted Syrian passports with no names or photos in them, from one of the captured government offices there. How many of those passports have ended up among the 25,000 refugees that are about to descend on a city near you? The feckless Ralph Goodale even admitted the other day that the system can’t be “100% foolproof”. I say if it can’t be 100% foolproof then don’t bring them to our shores. I also say that one way we can be 100% foolproof is to only allow Yazidis, Kurds and Christians, which is actually what the Cons were doing and were slated for during the election campaign, not very politically correct I admit, but somewhat foolproof.
For once I agree with Vladimir Putin this scourge that has now descended upon our civilization needs to be brutally wiped from the face of this planet, by any means necessary. In the mean time you pacifists and peaceniks can do the heavy lifting by starting Facebook pages demanding peace and singing your tired old John Lennon songs.
