I was in a meeting yesterday afternoon when the story about the Paris attacks broke. I came back down to my office to a message that Paris was under attack. There was limited media coverage at the time, so I was desperately searching for any details about what was going on. I have family and friends in Paris, and I was hoping everyone was safe.
I came home to chaos on CNN. Say what you will about CNN, but this is the type of reporting they do best. They were on scene. Interviewing the Mayor of Paris, the Deputy Mayor, witnesses, you name it. My cousin got in touch via Facebook and confirmed the family was fine. One friend is still MIA, and while I’m a little nervous, I’m sure he’s fine.
The “Religion of Peace” has struck again, just after our Dear Leader informed us that “ISIS is not getting stronger,” no less. French President Francois Hollande has closed France’s borders and implemented France’s first curfew since World War II in response, and has come right out and said it. We are at war. More than 100 people are dead from attacks ISIS claimed as their own. The world is in mourning. My Facebook feed is filled with French flag overlays on profile photos, including my own.
It took more than 100 people to die in coordinated terrorist attacks in one of the world’s most beloved cities for that nation’s leader to close down the borders. Until then, every EU member nation buckled under the pressure to allow hundreds of thousands of Middle Eastern refugees to enter their borders. Sure many of these people are searching for a safer, war-free life. Sure, Europe hands out benefits like candy – paid by its residents – and the Europeans feel they have a duty to help those in need. Europe is safe. Europe is generous. Europe is welcoming.
And Europe is paying for it.
There are a ton of military-aged males pouring into Europe. I will even acknowledge that the majority of them are probably not jihadists. Probably.
But how many jihadists did it really take to commit these atrocities? How many jihadists did it take to kill thousands of Americans on September 11, 2001?
It’s not about how many. It’s about the fact that they are flooding the borders, and there aren’t sufficient intelligence resources to run background checks to ensure they don’t have terrorist connections. It’s about the fact that the demand for Syrian passports is rampant, because Syrian refugees are given priority entry, and black market Syrian passports are being purchased like candy by anyone with money.
All it takes is a few. Of the hundreds of thousands of refugees flooding Europe, it would only take a handful of jihadists to commit an atrocity like the one that paralyzed France yesterday. How many? Ten? Twenty? There were attacks with automatic weapons, and there were explosions. Even if 100 people were involved in these heinous acts, it’s only a tiny percentage of the hundreds of thousands of refugees who are descending upon Europe.
A relatively small number of terrorists was able to kill more than 100 people. On September 11, 2001, just a couple of handfuls of terrorists murdered thousands and destroyed thousands of lives. That’s all it took. Just a few.
So while leftists screech how we shouldn’t judge all Muslims by the actions of a few extremists, and that the extremists are the very reasons those refugees are seeking refuge…
To people blaming refugees for attacks in Paris tonight. Do you not realise these are the people the refugees are trying to run away from..?

…they forget about the very real lives that were lost. They forget about the terror that was perpetrated against thousands of innocent people. They forget the families that were destroyed.
This isn’t about blame!
Blame? How callous do you have to be to push a political agenda while accusing terrorized and traumatized people of such things, you arrogant asshole?
We certainly do recognize reality – that in the swarm of hundreds of thousands, a small percentage of monsters could be hiding. If you can’t recognize that it’s not even close to placing blame, no one can help you! Perhaps a course in remedial English might be in order here?
Fact is we don’t know who these terrorists were. We know they were likely ISIS. We know it was too easy for them to slip into Europe, hidden among the torrent of refugees. This is not the refugees’ fault, but those are the facts. And if they didn’t enter with the recent crop of refugees, they still slithered in because – once again – Europe is welcoming, Europe is generous, Europe is safe.
So the only rational, logical thing to do is to close the borders. Yes, it sucks for the refugees. Yes, that means they will be suffering in a war-torn nation or be forced into a nation that may not be as developed, nice, generous, or welcoming as the European nations they’ve been flooding. There are no assets in Syria and no resources to perform background checks on the thousands and thousands of people demanding entrance into the West. Neither France nor any other EU member has the ability to properly check the thousands of military-aged males entering their countries for any connection to terrorist groups.
So yes. They need to shut their borders down. It might be callous, but it’s the only way to protect the citizens of those nations, and after all, isn’t that the basic role of government?
It doesn’t matter if only a small number of refugees are terrorists. It doesn’t matter if they’re terrorists hiding in a swarm of great people. Fact is they are there. They enter countries, and they destroy lives. So how about we focus on that, and stop pushing your idiot political agendas?
And speaking of idiot political agendas…
The racist shitbags at Mizzou have taken their Special Snowflake Syndrome to a new, more disgusting level. Remember how the Uber Idiot at the Washington Post a few days ago tried to justify the abuse of a University of Missouri student journalist by entitled, coddled, cowards? Remember how he claimed they were just so traumatized by their alleged abuse because of their alleged skin color by alleged racists at Mizzou for the alleged entirety of their presence there, that they had to have a “safe space” the media just had to respect?
Well, the media moved on, and that didn’t sit well with these repugnant, attention whoring maggots. aren’t happy, because apparently the attention from the media they claimed they needed “safe space” from – the attention that they claim is a betrayal and doesn’t adequately pick at their scabs – has shifted to true tragedy. And now that they’re no longer in the spotlight, they are whining, moaning, and complaining like the entitled, rotten infants that they are!
Black Lives Matter and Mizzou protesters responded to the murder of scores of people in Paris at the hands of Islamic extremists by complaining about losing the spotlight and saying their “struggles” were being “erased.” Their struggles, remember, consist of a poop swastika of unknown provenance and unsubstantiated claims of racially-charged remarks somewhere near Missouri’s campus.
THEIR struggle. They are safely ensconced in their dorm rooms and apartments, getting a university education, demanding and receiving special dispensation, excused from exams, mea culpas and ultimate resignations from university administrators, who had absolutely nothing to do with the alleged incidents in question, and they’re belittling the murder of innocent people by savage terrorists, because they’re not getting the attention to which they’re entitled!
This is beyond repugnant. This is beyond abhorrent.
Upon learning that terrorists attacked Paris, these cunttastic fucksacks decided that the lives of over 100 people at the hands of murderous savages, they decided that it was all about THEM!
Let’s get this straight. Mizzou wasn’t “terrorism.” The infamous cotton ball incident did not end any lives. It wound up with the arrests of two dumbasses who later apologized for their dumbassery. It will be a cold fucking day in hell before ISIS apologizes for the pain they cause.
The alleged poopstika incident? Yeah… I’ll believe it when I see it. IF this was a real incident, was anyone physically harmed? Was anyone killed? No.
The KKK threats were proven to be false, and the student body president who put the false warning out about those threats on social media admitted he was wrong.
Get over it, you entitled swine! This is not about you. No one needs to discredit you.
By belittling the tragedy that was Paris…
By attention whoring and scrambling like hell to turn the spotlight back to you in the face of horrifying tragedy that ended up in the deaths of more than 100 innocent people…
By deprecating and diminishing bloodshed and carnage in an effort to whore more attention for yourselves, you’ve discredited yourselves.
No Twitter “racists” had to do anything. You did their job for them, you malignant degenerates. Hope you’re proud.
