The French really
know how to throw a rally when there's a terrorist attack
3.7 million Frenchfolks and dozens of world leaders who rallied yesterday
in the aftermath of the murders of 16 innocent people by 3 radical
Islamists got me to thinking: How big was the rally following the 9/11
attacks, which killed just short of 3,000? I mean, if the size of
these rallies is proportional to the number of dead victims, then the NYC
rally should have drawn almost 700 million people. Of course,
there's only a bit over 300 million people in the USA, so that wasn't
going to happen.
But more to the point: nothing
happened after 9/11. I do not remember a single mass-rally, or any
rally at all immediately after 9/11. OK, Bono wore a jacket
with the American flag sewn in it at the Super Bowl five months later, but
that hardly counts as a rally.
Maybe America was too
shell-shocked. Or maybe, like their vice-president, Americans were
just too scared to come out of their holes and rally by the
millions. I mean, Cheney didn't appear in public for
months. And yet yesterday ya' had the French people, led by the
French president, turning out in mega-droves to flip a huge French bird at
the bad guys.
A more unsettling
question is: The whole world turns its attention to a kosher bakery when
four Jews are killed there, but why is it nobody gives a visible shit when
black people are killed by Boko Harem in Baga, Nigeria on
the same day? Is it the world's MSM editors or the world's white
people in general who find pain, suffering, and massive loss black
people's lives not news-worthy?
CNN edits out
Abbas. France tries to edit out Netanyahu
help but notice how CNN discretely removed Palestinian leader Mahmoud
Abbas from the iconic photo of the world's leaders standing
shoulder-to-shoulder against terrorism in Paris yesterday. Far less
discreet was CNN's query: WTF is Obama doing? or something like
that. While Bibi Netanyahu has a very prominent role in the photo,
only a tiny part of Abbas' head can be seen above the woman on the far
right. (She is probably somebody, but I don't have a clue who.)
Many other papers, The
Times of Inda for instance, ran a photo that was far more
balanced and far less disrespectful of the Palestinians.
Times of India
But the more
interesting back-story was that Bibi and Abbas were present for the rally
at all, having been originally asked by Hollande to stay home -- and they
both graciously agreed to. The problem was that Netanyahu's opponent
in the next election, Avigdor Lieberman, who is a bigger dick than Bibi
is, if that's possible, announced that he was going to Paris regardless of
what the French wanted. Now, how would that look to iJews in Tel
Aviv to see Liberman but not Bibi at the rally? And so Bibi changed
his mind and told Hollande he was coming, and Hollande (correctly, IMO)
re-invited Abbas. Full story here.
Islamophobic idiots Jeanine Pirro and Stephen Emerson score a huge
my position on Islamophobia:
Go ahead and be Islamophobic (or antisemitic) if you have some objective
basis for your bias, just don't be a shrill idiot about it, and stay
within the boundaries of the law. And "shrill idiot" is
precisely the term that describes FOX's stable of Islamophobes,
particularly Pirro and Emerson. Emerson got pumped-up by Pirro and
threw reason and truth to the wind -- he actually stated on air the
England's second largest city, Manchester, was completely controlled by
Muslims and was a "no-go" zone for non-Muslims. Video.
Of course, this being an Islamophobic circle-jerk between Pirro and
Emerson (not sure that's anatomically do-able) Pirro didn't have the
brains or journalistic integrity to ask: "By the way, when was the
last time you were in Manchester, Steve? How about England?"
Emerson had to retract
his outrageous nonsense and apologize,
but this is not the first time this dude has been called out, according to
Wikipedia. Here's a quote: "Despite being widely criticized for
his inaccuracies and for fomenting Islamophobia,
Emerson frequently testifies before Congressional committees on al-Qaeda
and other terrorist organizations." I don't know how
"frequently" but at least once.
But here's the funny
bit -- the same day Pirro and Emerson were mongering Shria fear about
Muslim religious police in England's "no-go" zones driving
around in cars enforcing Shria, the Daily
Mail was running an article -- with photos -- of Orthodox
Jew-cops in England driving around London in their special faux cop cars
-- BMW's no less, what would you expect?
Orthodox Jews' cop-car
the way the DM describes these Jewish police patrols:
in Stamford Hill, the volunteers are trained by the Metropolitan Police
and patrol the area regularly looking for anti-Semitic hate crimes, and
general disorder in the neighbourhood.
volunteer group, similar to a Neighbourhood Watch, are trained to safely
track and detain suspects until police arrive, and run a 24-hour hotline
for those in the area to report attacks.
disorder" -- what does that mean? Well, to Orthodox Jews it
means women walking on the side of the street where only men are allowed. Link.
And it means forcing goy women on airplanes to move to seats away from
their husbands so Jews don't have to sit next to them. Link.
And yet it's Muslims in England that scares the panties off of Pirro and
New video: Timothy
Loehmann, the Cleveland pig who shot 12 yo Tamir Rice, also assaulted his
you've got kids, what worse
nightmare could there be than the Tamir Rice killing: your 12 yo
son holding a toy gun shot and killed in a city park by a trigger-happy
cop who has been characterized by other cops as
But here's a worse
nightmare: you're the kid's 14 yo sister, Tajai, and when you try
to rush to Tamir's side after he's been shot, the same moron of a cop
throws you to the ground, cuffs you, stuffs you into the back of the cop
car sitting next to your dying brother, and leaves you locked up in there
for at least 30 minutes.
So, yep, here we are
with yet another video of fat-bellied cops with dubious records let loose
on the streets with loaded guns shooting the place up. The police
released a micro-version
of the video before Christmas -- it's less than 1 minute. But now
the news people have obtained and released an extended version of the
video -- 30 minutes -- and the entire of this fuster-cluck becomes even
more evident, including the take down of Tajai.
