…about that march…

I’d feel a whole lot better about this march thing if I knew for sure what the marchers thought they were marching for. I’ll bet you a shiny new Euro the majority of them thought they were marching in favor of multiculturalism. I don’t know when it started to be called the March for Unity, but it did. Dunno about you, but when I watched the Paris atrocity unfold, my first thought wasn’t, “what’s needed here is to open up a can of Unity.”

Maybe I’m just cynical. Maybe it was the sight of all those international scoundrels (the ones with very dodgy track records on freedom of the press) locking arms and looking pious and butter-wouldn’t-melt at the head of the procession.

Mahmoud Abbas? Really?

Maybe it was the people playing John Lennon’s Imagine out the window while the crowd roared.

Srsly. Imagine is my trigger. Whenever I hear the monotonous strains of that braindead puddle of toddler puke, my my eyeballs throb and my vision blurs and I am truly not responsible for what happens next.

It’s easy enough to turn out for the message, “I’m for nice things and against murder ‘n’ stuff.” It’s hard to decide what you’re going to do about it. I saw thousands of those “Je Suis Charlie” posters, and not a single picture of Mohammed. So, really, how Charlie were they?

Now, the PEGIDA thing. That’s getting interesting.

I’m waiting for the terrorists to wise up and realize that after their first target, they are presented with a huge secondary soft target.

They probably already knew that.

I heard Obama (and any other high-ranking official) didn’t go to France because the grief that he is getting from the right for not attending is nothing compared to the wailing and shrieking from the banshees of the left if he _did_ attend.

Makes sense to me. FORE!!!!

I just thought all those people in the street in Paris were begging their national government to do something to stop the murders of unarmed citizens.

Ok, maybe that was a stretch.

Maybe they were all out there together because they just realized that they might be the next victims.

Uhm. No, maybe not.

Ok, maybe they are herd animals, and when they feel threatened they … you know….herd together.

Ok, maybe I don’t have a clue.

Maybe it was the people playing John Lennon’s “Imagine” out the window while the crowd roared.

Yeah, that would have sent me over the edge. Got to be close to the most over-rated tune ever. Go back to Chaucer’s time if you like; I still think my claim holds up.

You know PEGIDA is a threat to their world view when the BBC goes straight to Godwin’s Law in their definition of “What is PEGIDA?”:

“Umbrella group for German right wing, attracting support from mainstream conservatives to neo-Nazi factions and football hooligans”

Can’t have the peasants thinking that they can disagree with their masters, now can we?

The BBC also waxes ecstatic about the anti-PEGIDA rallies:

“On 5 January the anti-Pegida demonstrations were massive – crowds thronged the streets of Cologne, Stuttgart and Berlin.
There were dramatic gestures of support for the marchers: the lights of Cologne Cathedral were switched off, as were the lights at the Volkswagen plant in Dresden.”

Am I pessimistic if that reminds me of the British Foreign Secretary’s reported remark at the start of WW1?
“The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our life-time”

Yeah, that’s what bothers me too: what was this whole “unity” theme supposed to be? What are they united to, or for? What was the theme or the goal?

Parisians have to be tired of the Muslims in their midst and their car-b-que’s every New Years, their zones that result in beatings and rapes if a non-Muslim enters, and their continual “young men of indeterminate race and religion” crimes.

I give it two weeks to slide off the news. Then comes the crackdown.

No, not on Muslims – on you!

Rather than JE SUIS CHARLIE, they need JE SUIS CHARLES MARTEL. While the mass rally made the European equivalent of LIV’s feel better; there is a 3-way contest in progress. Status quo LIV’s and Nomenklatura -v- the Third Wave Jihad [the first crested at Tours in 732. The Second was stopped at the Gates of Vienna in 1529, and the Siege of Malta in 1565, and Lepanto in 1571. In this Third Wave, the Jihad has reached as far north as Sweden and Norway establishing colonies under Sharia law in every European country. This invasion is not only unopposed, it is invited.] -v- those few in Europe and America who have not succumbed pre-emptively [PEGIDA and others].

The status quo is gone beyond retrieval, no matter how much it harms the psyches of those who are in denial. Only one side will prevail, although those supporting the status quo will likely objectively end up helping the Jihadi’s by trying to cripple any resistance.

The lights are going out in Europe and elsewhere. There is no assurance that they will ever come on again.

How can a man die better,
Than facing fearful odds ….

You know how if you trap a bunch of rats they will eventually turn cannibal? Then you keep feeding in rats until there’s only one total bad-ass rat left. It’s safe to let it out, because now it likes the taste of rat.

Wait till someone finds a mosque in Birmingham … with an MG42!

I hear that there are so many Muslims in Birmingham that they are changing its name to Birming.

The sooner Europeans realise that they are the extermination target of multiculturalism – the better.

Play time is over.

John Lennon grew up in the 1970’s, and by the time of his death, loathed Imagine. Just like when I heard Bobby McFerrin on NPR, saying how much he wished he had never written Don’t Worry, Be Happy.

Lennon hated Imagine. McFerrin hates Don’t Worry Be Happy. And Timbuk3 hates A Future So Bright I Gotta Wear Shades.

I see a trend.

Maybe it’s just because they are(were) asked to play them ALL THE FREAKIN’ TIME.

I used to work in a factory in Singapore, next to a line that made toy pianos that played It’s A Small World After All. They would test the pianos once they were assembled and I would hear that damn song over. And over. And over again. All. Day. Long.

Can’t stand to hear it know. It’s one of my triggers.

Le March was not what I expected or wanted. What they needed was villagers with torches. Sadly, they got “unity” instead, lead by several world leaders who themselves have jailed dissident media types. What could have been a one day revolution that cleaned up France became a pussified “We are the World” pukefest of cowardice. Or, as Iowahawk said it best, “Don’t bring a candlelight vigil to a gunfight.”
