Via The Dark Herald:
must be incredibly frustrating as an Islamic terrorist not to have your
views and motives taken seriously by the societies you terrorize, even
after you have explicitly and repeatedly stated them. Even worse, those
on the regressive left, in their endless capacity for masochism and
self-loathing, have attempted to shift blame inwardly on themselves,
denying the terrorists even the satisfaction of claiming responsibility.
It's like a bad Monty Python sketch:
"We did this because our holy texts exhort us to to do it."
"No you didn't."
"Wait, what? Yes we did..."
"No, this has nothing to do with religion. You guys are just using religion as a front for social and geopolitical reasons."
Did you even read our official statement? We give explicit Quranic
justification. This is jihad, a holy crusade against pagans,
blasphemers, and disbelievers."
"No, this is definitely not a Muslim thing. You guys are not true Muslims, and you defame a great religion by saying so."
Who are you to tell us we're not true Muslims!? Islam is literally at
the core of everything we do, and we have implemented the truest most
literal and honest interpretation of its founding texts. It is our very
reason for being."
"Nope. We created you. We installed a social
and economic system that alienates and disenfranchises you, and that's
why you did this. We're sorry."
"What? Why are you apologizing?
We just slaughtered you mercilessly in the streets. We targeted
unwitting civilians - disenfranchisement doesn't even enter into it!"
"Listen, it's our fault. We don't blame you for feeling unwelcome and lashing out."
stop taking credit for this! We worked really hard to pull this off,
and we're not going to let you take it away from us."
"No, we nourished your extremism. We accept full blame."
"OMG, how many people do we have to kill around here to finally get our message across?"
