The World Has Gone Mad

You just can't make this stuff up.

Organisers cancel Sunday's Brussels attacks 'March Against Fear'
The organisers of a "March Against Fear" planned for Sunday to mark the Brussels terror attacks said they had cancelled the event after the authorities asked them to do so because of security fears.
Oh my aching back. Cancelling a "March Against Fears" due to fears about what might happen - words fail me...

...other than to note that, in accordance with political correctness run amok, the people responsible for causing this fear aren't identified.
In an earlier statement, the organisers said the march planned for Sunday was meant to show that Brussels and the country at large refused to be intimidated by terrorism and that everyone stood together.
I guess "Brussels and the country at large" can be intimidated by terrorism after all.

Although, to be fair, the terrorists - islamic terrorists, to be specific - have once again shown their murderous intent and capability by killing dozens and injuring hundreds, mostly women and children, in an Easter Sunday attack that deliberately targeted Christians celebrating Easter.
A breakaway Pakistani faction of the militant Taliban group has claimed responsibility for an Easter Sunday bombing that killed 65 people in a park in the eastern city of Lahore that was crowded with Christians, including many children.

Ahsanullah Ahsan, spokesman for Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, told the Associated Press that a suicide bomber with the faction deliberately targeted the Christian community.
Maybe the officials in Brussels had the right idea after all.

Here at home, all this is playing right into Donald Trump's hands.
The Islamic State’s bombing of an airport terminal and subway station in Brussels, Belgium on March 22 horrified the world. But Donald Trump saw a silver lining in the latest terrorist atrocity.

During an interview a few hours after the bloodshed in Brussels, Trump announced that foreign threats benefited his presidential campaign. He proudly observed that “every time we have a problem in the world, I do better” in the polls. The reason, he asserted, was because voters view him “as much stronger” than his opponents.
I don't know if that's true or not, but keep in mind that Jimmy Carter's ineffectiveness during the Iran hostage crisis helped propel Ronald Reagan into the White House.

Of course, Trump isn't Reagan by any stretch of the imagination, but still...

So an event warning of global warming cancelled by a snow storm is no longer the edge of lunacy.

The western society is being murdered aided by it's own hand of compliance. I say we nuke the kaabah during the pilgrimage. Oh wait, doesn't that make us just like them? No because violence is made necessary to extinguish those who do evil. More germane is it speaks in the language they understand. So let's communicate ASAP.

The Christian Conservative western societies are doomed. And as a previous commenter stated these cultures are committing suicide by Politic Correctness. He or she suggests using the nuclear option. That may be the only sensible option but it ain't going to happen so let's take it off the table right now. Even though my presidential candidate Mr. Trump may elude to using nukes he's not going to resort to them.

I've seen the slide toward a naïve, Liberal American society since the 1960's and nothing is going to stop it. Many historians have stated the life span of a Republic is between 200 and 300 years. America better admit they are a geriatric society doomed to decay. I'm not wishing it and don't shoot the messenger. I'm just tossing out my conclusion from years of observations.

Got news for ya'll. America is DOOMED folks. Republican members of the Washington D.C. Beltway Politician Club are as notably impotent as a eunuch in a syphilis infected whore house full of gorgeous nymphomaniacs.


Time to pick up our cards and go home.

Home?

Not sure yet.

Anon and Toejam - I'm with you in spirit, Bros, but I do have one concern. To paraphrase that old logic syllogism, all poodles are dogs, but not all dogs are poodles. IOW, all (or almost all) terrorists are muslims, but not all muslims are terrorists. How do we tell the good ones from the bad ones?

I'm tempted to say "Kill 'em all and let God sort them out" but that would lower us to their level. I'm not sure what the long range answer is, but sort term is a no brainier. Keep them out until we can differentiate between jihadis and humans.

NFO - that guy is way off the rails. He needs to be reined in PDQ.

Toejam - agreed that the GOPe are worthless. But I'm still hopeful that we can right the ship before it goes down with all hands.
