No Hard Feelings

Arras, France

I hope this makes up for all of our years of unnecessary France bashing.

But it’s not terrorism, even though he was on France’s anti-terrorist radar.  And don’t you dare say I***m, much less insinuate that that had anything to do with it, because religion of peace.

I wonder what Arabic for dindu nuffins is?





Atheist in the Huddle

ESPN be like: Arian Foster is an atheist! Pop the bubbly!

Everyone else be like:  So?

They’re trying to make Foster out to be the anti-Tebow, which is ironic, because the Tebow hoopla is also mostly an artificial ESPN creation.  Other than the universes of people that love Tebow and hate Tebow, those two universes dynamically feed off of each other, most people don’t much care about Tim Tebow, either.  Another irony is that between NFL jobs, Tebow did segments for ABC’s GMA, it and ESPN both being Disney properties, and according to the gossip that got out and around, he made a good impression on just about everyone at GMA, and they loved him.

For one, noticing things.

For another, mendacious media articles that ridicule conspiracy theorists, show a picture of someone protesting Treasonstock, then when you actually read the article, you read about Muslim yoots and ISIS:

In the case of terrorism and Isis, he questioned why is it that some 18 or 19 year olds can be convinced by Isis recruiters to believe their interpretation of Islam despite the people around them telling them differently.

He explained: “For example, I don’t know much about Islam but I do know that there is an absolute clear bar in Islam on suicide. So people who are told it is acceptable to be suicide bombers are ending up believing something which on the face has no foundation at all.”

“Duh, why are young Muslim men actually taking their own religion seriously?”

As for that suicide paradox, that’s an easy one to solve.  It’s called Taqqiya, meaning that Muslims can violate what are otherwise Islamic morality laws in order to further the cause and help the spread of Islam.

Back to the mendacious media, it’s why we often see articles about yoots committing violent crime, either as a specific incident or as a general complaint; the article shows stock images of happy white teenagers hanging around, and then when you read the article, the actual crime will be in the black part of town and/or the named doers will have black sounding names, if applicable, or the article will quote AME church reverends and focus on the problems in the ghetto parts of town.

Looping back around to this article and this study, it’s nothing more than the latest effort to try to come up with an excuse that enough important people will believe about why young Muslims do yooty Islamic things that does not involve much less blame Islam at all, and in the process, blames all “conspiracy theorists,” white rightist and otherwise, probably to fulfill a Steve Sailer prophecy, that the way the establishment is going to prohibit Muslim immigration without actually prohibit Muslim immigration is to prohibit the immigration of “conspiracy theorists.”

 





Paucity of Youths

Detroit

Teenage and young adult Christians of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA, mainline Lutherans), thirty thousand in all, clean up Detroit.

Perfectly understandable and commendable, considering Detroit’s severe paucity of youths, yoots.

Mixed Messages From Down There

18 07 2015

Kingsway East and U-City

P-D:

St. Louis cops, clergy join in prayer for end to violence

Clergy, police and community members prayed — and prayed hard — on Friday at a church on the city’s near north side for an end to violence in the area. They continued with evening vigils at the St. Louis, Chesterfield and University City police departments.

Because when I think of pandemic violence in need of divine intervention, I think of Chesterfield.

St. Louis police Chief Sam Dotson was among the brass in attendance.

“There are too many guns and too many youths, especially, who are quick to resort to violence to settle disputes,” Dotson said as he entered the church at 1617 North Euclid Avenue.

Too many yoots.  You know, chiefy, you’re getting somewhere.

The Rev. Vickie Caldwell’s invocation served as a critique of the justice system.

“Forgive us, oh Lord, our genocidal crimes,” Caldwell prayed.

Our justice system is really doing a good whiz bang cracker jack job at the genocide it wants.

This presents a paradox in the whole set of events of yesterday, but I’ll get to that in a moment.

Roorda stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Cornell McKay, 23, of St. Louis.

McKay was sentenced last year to 12 years in prison for the armed robbery of a woman in 2012.

McKay’s attorneys had criticized the witness account as flawed. The Missouri Court of Appeals ordered a new trial and, in May, St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce dropped the charges, citing the victim’s unwillingness to testify at a retrial.

Beat a dozen year bid, basically on a technicality.

McKay, clutching the microphone, called on several veterans of the Ferguson protests to leave the pews and join him at the front of the church.

“The only way we can stop killing each other,” McKay said, “Is to start loving each other.”

A good way to start loving each other is not to engage in armed robbery of each other.

“We do all want the same thing. We want a city at peace that practices justice,” said the Rev. Samuel Voth Schrag. “I think every police officer and protester wants that.”

I dealt with that bromide already.

Now, for U-City’s part in all this:

Clergy pray for end to violence and racial profiling by police

(snip)

In University City, pastors called on that police department to update its community policing and diversity training so it can become an accredited department.

Pastor Dietra Wise Baker of Liberation Christian Church in University City said even though the department’s statistics on traffic stops were better than many other towns “It wasn’t perfect.”

“They still showed some racial bias so we wanted to address that by coming out here tonight,” she explained.

Pastor Karen Anderson of Ward AME Church in Florissant joined the others who stood on Delmar praying as commuters headed home.

“Our voices will not be silent, oh God, anymore until we move to a beloved community where everybody is valued,” she promised.

The University Police Department did not offer any response to the criticism.  Pastor Wise Baker said she had spoken to the chief previously.

“He wasn’t ready to commit to us; he wasn’t ready to say ‘hey we’ll listen to having a civilian review board.’” she said.

You’re praying to put an end to blacks being held criminally responsible for crimes they commit (“racial profiling”), and then praying for a stop to (black) violence.  Why would you pray for something then pray for the consequences of that something you’re praying for not to happen?

God be like:  What’s with all these mixed messages coming from down there?





People Pay Attention

NYT responds on its double standards when it comes to the portrayal of religious figures:

And finally, the very different reactions bear this out. Hundreds of thousands of people protested worldwide, for instance, after the Danish cartoons were published some years ago. While some people might genuinely dislike this Milwaukee work, there doesn’t seem to be any comparable level of outrage.

This is a written confession that they’re scared of Muslims but not Christians, because Muslims use violence while Christians don’t.

It’s also an implicit admission of what I’ve been saying for awhile in this space, when it comes to Muslims and black rioters, that the people that matter in the Western world are communicating via their actions that violence and terrorism work.  And who recently received that message loud and clear?  A nutbar in Charleston, South Carolina.
