Tragedy?July 8th, 2005 at 4:20 pm by Preston Taylor Holmes
The whitewashing has already begun before they’ve even finished collecting the body parts.
The death toll, incidentally, has risen above 50 according to London’s Metropolitan Police Commissioner.
While watching Fox News last night (you know, trying to get more breaking news from Greta Von Horseface in Aruba), I was struck by the use of the term tragedy by at least two people when discussing yesterday’s terrorist attacks in London. This is the same misuse of the language that started to surface weeks after 9/11 and has plagued us ever since.
This was not a tragedy. This was an attack. Yes, it’s tragic that lives were lost, but the event itself was an attack – or even more accurately – an act of war. When you hear some talking head on television or radio refer to this event as a tragedy, you can bet your sweet ass a leftist/pacifist twat is talking.
I can recall watching the opening ceremonies of the 2002 U.S. (Tennis) Open in New York and wanting to puke at the defeatist garbage that was getting spewed about 9/11. There was a lot of talk of “tragedy” and “victims” – no talk of “islam” or “terrorism” or “attacks”.
It’s that type of linguistic sanitization that we’re already hearing from the pundits in broadcast and print. It took a while to start happening after 9/11. This time, it started happening the same day of the attacks. That shows you how far we’ve sunk into the morass of moral relativism when it comes to terrorist attacks.
“Don’t rush to judgment against militant islam,” they say. “Terms like evil are unproductive at times like these,” they say. Well, fuck them in the nose sideways.
Militant islam has given us more than enough evidence to rush to judgment against them – and if you can’t call the indiscriminate violent execution of innocent men, women and children evil, then you need to be put to sleep like a diseased dog – and fast.
And what of British resolve? I certainly didn’t see it in Tony Blair’s shaky, polite, semi-indignant speech yesterday. I saw knees knocking and heard talk about “our values” overcoming “their values”. One thing I didn’t hear was rage or anger.
While I’d love to fall in line with the rest of you who believe that this is the same London that survived Hitler’s bombing raids, my bet is that it isn’t. While they have stood with us in Iraq, the rank-and-file Brit was raised on the leftist vomit of the BBC and I fear would rather pray five-times-a-day towards Mecca rather than do what is necessary to save traditional British culture from the Dhimmis.
My predictionâ€¦ the British see carving more out of Israel to â€œfeed the alligatorâ€? as the only solution that makes them feel nice about themselves.
We need to make the phrases â€œDar al Islamâ€?, jihad and dhimmi generate the same wince among 1.5 billion muslims as would wistful expressions of longing for the good old days of the Third Reich be seen among most Germans today. Until there are government-hating â€œMuslim Al Frankensâ€? with their own radio shows in Iraq, Iran and Saudi Arabia, openly damning the mullahs, Islam will not be safe for this planet.
Why arenâ€™t we publicly discussing the need to raze the mosque of every Imam and Mullah who HASNâ€™T issued a death fatwa against the believers among them who are planning these attacks. Give them a week. Lots of fatwas still exist against Salman Rushdie for writing a novel. Islam hasnâ€™t generated ANY evidence of being willing to FIGHT its violent agitators. Thereâ€™s been one fatwa against Osama from a nobody. A well-publicized Muslims for Peace march in Washington DC a couple of months ago couldnâ€™t generate more than 50 attendees.
The Old Media needs to quit whitewashing the language – quit apologizing for this 14th century gutter culture bent on mass murder and get on board a plan to obliterate them to the point of being unable to blow up a dixie cup with an M-80.
