I was out of town last few days. Lots of things happening. Like so many other times I’ve taken a short break from blogging, nothing has happened that shook my world view.
Recently-arrived, alienated Muslim immigrants blew up some Americans and a well behaved visitor. The perpetrators’ rage at all things–Russia, Christians, basic decency–are on display. Some relatives, particularly Uncle Ruslan, behaved normally and admirably, but the rest were knee deep in excuses and obfuscation. Obama made sure to remind us how great diversity is on the eve of his mass amnesty, as evidenced, I suppose, by these two vermin acting like their predecessors on 9/11 and at the El Al Airlines counter. Funny enough, one became a citizen on 9/11. Diversity is our strength!
What an obvious lie. It’s really simple: newcomers mostly do not share our values, do not necessarily like us, and the most alienated among them find ample justification for violence in leftism. This amplified when the background leftism and anti-Americanism of the culture is combined with the uncompromising and violent tenets of Islam. So yes, Uncle Ruslan is right, they are losers, and there loserness had something to do with why these two among the legions of American Muslims undertook their jihad. But there are loser Chinese and African and South American people here too; they rarely seem to direct their energies towards catastrophic violence.
The Chechens are unique even among their coreligionists. They are the people cutting off Russian heads and making videos of their suffering that you can easily find on the internet. This happens all the time and in our stupid Russophobia, we spend our energies not on expressing solidarity with fellow Christian victims of terrorism but instead on criticizing their army’s alleged excesses. Let’s not forget Beslan or the martyrdom of Yevgeni Rodionov while we remember Boston.
