Mark Steyn: The Mohammed Merah Story Can Now Proceed According to Time-Honored Tradition

From National Review Online.

Stage One: The strange compulsion to assure us that the killer is a “right wing conservative extremist . . . ."

. . .

Stage Two: Okay, he may be called Mohammed but he’s a “lone wolf.”

. . .

Stage Three: Okay, even if there are enough lone wolves around to form their own Radio City Rockette line, it’s still nothing to do with Islam.

. . .

Stage Four: The backlash that never happens. Because apparently the really bad thing about actual dead Jews is that it might lead to dead non-Jews: “French Muslims Fear Backlash After Shooting.” Likewise, after Major Hasan’s mountain of dead infidels, “Shooting Raises Fears For Muslims In US Army.” Likewise, after the London Tube slaughter, “British Muslims Fear Repercussions After Tomorrow’s Train Bombing.” Oh, no, wait, that’s a parody, though it’s hard to tell.

(Hyperlinks in original.) Go to the link to fill-in the rest of his rationale. With certain stories, it appears, The Narrative must be played out, regardless of what the facts are and regardless of how unproductive and unhelpful it might be.

7 The people who create and promote this Narrative do not believe the West has any right to righteous anger or self defense.

The Narrative is founded on the illegitimacy of the West.

33 What is it that is dooming the West to reject th core values and beliefs that lead to the supremacy of the West? Even buying into the argument that only a very small percentage of muslims are jihadis, it still means that there are one heckuva a lot of jihadis out there, and every jihadi action makes it clear that their value system (if you can call a 6th century abomination a value system) is inimical to the well-being of almost all Western peoples. The amazing thing is that the jihadi value system is inimical to other muslims as well, yet there is no significant outcry from adherents of slight variants of islam as they get bombed maimed, etc.

The problem is a core of sociopaths that have no issues about doing anything to enrich themselves while turning the entire Earth into a socialist hell. That means tearing down the West first.
Obama is just one. And BTW, this is not a paranoid rant. Global cap & trade with enterprise exchanges, bizarre UN treaties, emission caps on whole Countries, Fake Global warming crisis that can only be controlled internationally. There is no sekrit sooper evil group; it is all pretty much in the open. If you are a sociopath actual people don't mean a thing unless you enjoy debasing them, otherwise they are there to serve you.

Yes, in prog/lib/race land, you cannot get to the truth if you are interested in the facts.


MAJ Hasan committed multiple murders in from of intelligent credible witnesses, but we are still trying to understand his motivations.


Mumia killed a police officer in cold blood, was convicted by jury trial, and is still a "cause" and worthy of a full pardon.


Zimmerman may have committed a murder or defended himself, with either few or no observers, and with much confusing factual detail still emerging. Obviously, he needs to be hung immediately and in public!

101 But several years earlier, Merah had traveled to Afghanistan and Pakistan to participate in jihad, and received training there. On Dec. 19, 2007, he was arrested in Kandahar on charges of emplacing IEDs in the province, and was sentenced to three years in jail, Reuters reports. He escaped in a Taliban jailbreak in June 2008, according to Afghan prison officials.

The prison break in Kandahar in 2008, a complex assault involving suicide bombers, rockets, and an exploding tanker truck, resulted in the release of more than 1,000 prisoners, including 400 Taliban insurgents. Canadian troops in the area tried to round up escapees, but many vanished. Three years later, more than 450 Taliban commanders and fighters escaped the same jail by tunneling out.

A US intelligence official told The Long War Journal that the suspect may have been a member of Forsane Alizza ("Knights of Pride"), a Salafist group that was officially banned in France in January for "inciting national, racial and religious discimination." According to Kuwait News Agency, the group had recently advocated throwing acid in the face of a Swiss politician, and had an anti-Israel agenda. Merah's association with the group is unconfirmed, however.

104 This "backlash" fear by the MBM is actually hilarious

They won't cover stories of black on white racially motivated crimes because you know, us crackers are just itchin' to lynch some poor black men

Travor Martin Luther King however is covered extensively, because you know a whitey hating movie director isn't going to blast his home address all over the internet for black panther and other thugs to see

106 Again, at the risk of beating a dead donkey, leftism is a mental disorder, not a real ideology. Ergo the media narrative on these sorts of matters must be followed because it's a function of the ways in which leftists project various disorders of theirs, most notably anti-Semitism, reality denial and self-loathing.

108 102: Well yes but under Islam there is no guilt only shame, so if you keep things on the down low or have sufficient power you can do whatever your dark nature desires --and liberals always think they'll have power once they get rid of those evil capitalists that measure success by money or some other dirty objective standard.

109 Curious question, when an Islamist attacks one liberals anointed ppl, gays/planned parenthood/feminist etc Does anyone think that they will finally wake up to threat? Or are they that stupid?... wait nevermind
