Terrorism in Manchester!

Yeah, so?

“But, don’t you see, it’s really, really bad.  Twenty-two people, many of them children, were killed by a suicide bomber.”

Has this not happened before?

“Yes, but this time it’s extraordinary.  It was at an Ariana Grande concert.”

Isn’t she the narcissistic little sleaze that said, “I hate Americans. I hate America.

Yes, but she apologized.

Just remember, ‘Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.’

Anyway, have not the Brits been threatened, chided, warned, and oh yes, killed, by the same Muslims intent on taking over their country?

“Well, yes, but no one ever expected this to happen.  It’s just so surreal.  How could anyone be so brutal to take innocent lives?  Oh the precious, precious children!”

Again, has this not happened before, with the promises that it would continue, until Great Britain was an Islamic country?

“Why are you asking these questions.  Aren’t you horrified?”

No, I’m not horrified.  I’m wondering why you ignore the obvious and then expect a different result when events like this happen.

“What do you mean?  This is not supposed to happen.”

Of course it’s supposed to happen.  When you come to a railroad crossing and the lights are flashing, with the crossing arms down, do you just plow on through expecting not to be creamed by the train?


Then why should you expect something wholly other, when you ignore all the warning signs that the Islamists keep sending your way?

“But, not all Islamists are terrorists.  Most Muslims are fun-loving people who just want to get along with everyone.  Besides, Islam is a religion of peace.”

That’s like saying some locomotives will not kill you if they are only going 40 miles per hour when they hit you, as opposed to the ones going 70 miles per hour.

“So, you’re one of those bigoted Islamophobes who lumps all Muslims into the same category and thinks that by hating on them, peaceful coexistence will occur?”

No, I’m saying that the ideology of Islam is one of bigotry, hatred, and murder, and those who fail to recognize it or choose to explain it all away amid the demonic propaganda everyone is fed on a daily basis from either the Muslims or the media, are destined to become one of its victims.

“Well, I choose to love, not hate, and if you believe for one minute that I’m going to condemn a whole religion for the horrific act of one lone wolf, then you are sorely mistaken.  You, sir, are the problem; not Islam.”

Then enjoy the next act of carnage, soon to come to a neighborhood near you; complete with all the bombs, the blood, and the body parts.  That is, if you are not one of the casualties.

And don’t act surprised when it happens.  After all, you were warned, and that not necessarily by me.

Have a nice day.
