It’s been my pattern generally to blog about the various terror attacks in our country and in Europe. It appears that quite a few bloggers are writing about the recent spate of attacks in New York and New Jersey, while I’ve been silent on that, while in the past it was the other way around.
The fact is, I seem to find little to say as these things become frequent. Not long ago some French official arrogantly told his countrymen that they would just have to ‘get used to’ the acts of terror. And sadly I think it’s easy to become hardened and blase about these things, horrible though they may be. Ever since 9/11 and the ensuing acts of violence against us, there has been talk of how this state of things would become ‘the new normal’, and we would just adapt to it, ceasing to be troubled or outraged, unable to even feel reasonable fear.
I certainly haven’t become callous about this state of things. I do know people in the areas which were hit by the recent bombings, both in northern New Jersey and in Manhattan, Chelsea to be precise. I know people who knew relatives of 9/11 victims.
It is hard to find anything new to say about these things, something that has not been said hundreds of times before by me and by numerous others. We can wryly observe how the Lying Press rolls out the cliche stories with headlines like ‘Local Muslims fear backlash.‘ And they never disappoint, these media whores: there was an article from the Minnesota press titled something like ‘Local Somali community fears backlash.‘
All they do is change a few names and dates and they just use the well-worn template for these insulting stories — insulting in that they imply that American White Christians are bloodthirsty, violent people who attack innocents at every opportunity, and that Moslems are helpless, blameless victims. Lying Press, Luegenpresse, what an apt term.
For the moment I seem to be burnt out on writing about the terrorism/open borders syndrome, because there is nobody in positions of power who will care or heed us at all.
