There will be plenty mentioned about the mass murder in Manchester yet another Islamist lunatic licenced himself to carry out. I’ll leave it to others to state, yet again, that ideas such as Jihad and martydom usually lead to mass murder and that believing after they are dead they will continue to be alive is the reason these twisted people kill themselves.
What I’m heartily sick of is the utter banality of the responses from our political ‘leaders’. I don’t need them to ‘explain’ the causes of the Manchester outrage (or any of the other outrages). I know well enough what the cause is. But what is going on in head of a person who is happy to state the attack is ‘cowardly’?
What are these people doing?
Cowardice is what prevents people from doing things. This odd desire, to call the murderers names, seems to me to be missing more than the point, and might be a left-over from the first World War, when the accusation, ‘coward,’ was a disgusting way to peer-pressure young men into drowning in mud. Some seem to think this word must be felt like a blade in the gut in those to whom it’s directed.
Is ‘coward’ meant to embarrass the crazies who do this? What will Mrs May next response be – to call ISIS malingerers?
This isn’t a pedantic point. One must ask if someone uses the expression, to what extent are they thinking? And if they’re not thinking all that much – to what extent do they care?
Another expression which makes me want to throw-up is ‘my thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families’. It doesn’t make even any surface sense. Surely a person’s thoughts are always inside their own heads? So what is being said when this cliched sack of nothingness is spluttered into the nearest camera? The person might mean, ‘I’m thinking about the victims and their families.’ If so, what – what exactly – is being thought? And prayers?
For the love of reason it’s enough to make me want to scream! Prayers!! Isn’t the belief in the supernatural the cause of all this bloody murder to begin with?
No, I was forgetting. The cause of religious violence is never religion because that would be racist.
Just wait for the donkey police to announce there’s no link to ISIS, just like they did with Mr Angry on Westminster Bridge. No link to ISIS, even though ISIS called specifically for vehicle attacks in 2014, which is why more and more are happening now.
The Twatroplitan Police couldn’t ‘detect’ their own assholes with two hands and a torch.
