We live in a universe of wimps, pansies, and lily-livered narcissists. Just turn on the evening news. The latest proof that there are very few real men and women of courage and self-sufficiency comes in the form of some cartoons published by a Danish newspaper depicting Mohammed in various ways. My current masthead features one of the twelve cartoons that were published, along with some subtle mocking of Islam’s moderate and extremist position on the offensiveness of the cartoons. The imbroglio is about as ridiculous as one might expect from a gutless, pusillanimous, unmanly religion that encourages and supports responses ranging from cries of protest to burning of embassy buildings.
Still, one can’t expect too much of a religion whose dictates include wiping off the face of the planet anyone who does not submit to their way of thinking. They are children; barbaric, senselessly violent, systematically simple in reason, unbearably intolerant of any jot or tittle that offends their delicate spiritual digestion. They have no respect for life, no fear of God, no ounce of tolerance, no hair of sensibility, and no ability to distinguish the sacred from the profane. They claim to be the servants of Allah. If they are, then Allah’s minions are no more than butchers and death dealers with a sadistic worldview and just enough intelligence to construct the necessary number of suicide vests and lead pipe bombs to make the world in their image, or break it to pieces, ball bearing by ball bearing. Their goal is nothing less than the complete and utter dhimmitude of the planet.
However, the real proof of the debilitated state of humanity, the milquetoast acquiescense that defines us as a species, comes in the form of our own precious gatekeepers of truth and fact. News organizations such as CNN, the New York Times, and other bastions of the written and televised journalistic treatises that we regard with such awe, are responsible for the coddling of these villainous religious cretins who deem twelve tame cartoon depictions of Islam’s most holy prophet worthy of annihilating buildings with flame, rioting en masse on government installations, and delivering their gutless, invertebraic whinging as if were Allah’s own word and deed. These news institutions, so brave to publish images profaned images of Jesus in past times, have deemed the publication of these cartoons as “adding fuel to the fire”.
Would it be impertinent of me to remind these venerable organizations who set those fires in the first place?
The Fourth Estate’s pablum that passes for justification of their policy is the thesis of docile calfs waiting to be slaughtered. In it we can hear the faint-of-heart editorial board room meeting talks, their decision making quorums, voted without the merest opposition, to suspend, abdicate, reduce, and deny their chosen field’s most basic tenet. With one deft motion, the media has chosen to give the reigns of their most able horses to the hordes of unreasonable religion.
And they do it all in the name of free speech.
We, sodding and plodding people of the West, accept and shrug our shoulders. We fear no burning buildings here. We fear no toxic invasion from the East. If only we knew. If only our gatekeepers would tell us of the impending doom of our species. Instead, they’re blurring out pictures of the Most Holy Prophet.
Religion is safe to offend only when the offended doesn’t have the clear and precedented will and ability to cut off your head with a sword. Religion is only safe to offend when its followers don’t possess keys to vehicles filled with C4 and shards of metal. And the bottom line for a limpwristed society is that survival means acquiescence to the guy wearing the suicide vest. Even at the cost of honest reporting, free speech, and self-respect.
Are we men? Far from it. We’re better than the butchering children who seek to enslave our cultural mindset and overwhelm us with fear, intimidation, and overt displays of barbarism and savagery one associates with the most base of animals. But only barely.
