STOP BITCHING ABOUT WHETHER DAESH IS ISLAMIC OR NOT! IT DOESN’T FUCKING MATTER!
This scene, if you are unfamiliar came out of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”, is where a knight of the round table stumbles upon a three headed knight in the forest. The three headed knight begins to argue among its heads on what should be the fate of King Arthur’s knight. Ultimately, they decide that they would kill him and then go have tea, but not biscuits (they’re British, that’s their thing… whatever). All the while as they argue, they didn’t notice Sir Robin sneaking away, and once they came upon their decision of kill him and tea, he had already made his escape.
Our nation is so busy infighting about whether we should be politically correct in our reference to and classification of DAESH, that we aren’t actually addressing the problem. Yes, we’ve put some special forces on the ground to help “train” Iraqi forces, and we’ve done some missile strikes on key targets. But that hasn’t degraded them. They haven’t stopped what they are doing. Each day, they kill people. They execute people. They enslave people. While we sit back and gripe about how we are hurting other Muslims’ feelings when we use the term “Islamic Extremists”. WHO CARES! Calling them a bunch of DAISIES doesn’t change the fact that they continue to chop off people’s heads! They continue to throw gay men off of roofs. They rape little girls (probably little boys too). Yes, their actions may not be in accordance to the teachings of Islam, but I don’t give a shit! Their actions aren’t in line with any other religions either. Doesn’t matter. They’re not just going to stop doing what they do simply because its not what Islam is really about. Nope, they’re going to continue to kill, rape, and enslave until the point they are stopped. On the flip side of that coin, is it that big of an issue if we simply don’t call it Islamic Extremism? Even if you win that argument, they’re still just killing, raping, and enslaving. It won’t change anything.
So for fuck’s sake, can we just get our shit together as a country… wait a sec before I finish…
AND STOP TRYING TO JUSTIFY WHAT THEY ARE DOING OVER THERE! STOP BEING A DAMNED APOLOGIST BECAUSE CHRISTIANS, WHITES, BLACKS, AMERICANS, EUROPEANS, AND AFRICANS ALL HAVE DONE SIMILAR ATROCITIES THROUGHOUT HISTORY! ITS HISTORY FOR A REASON! DAESH AND THEIR ACTIONS ARE NOW! DON’T LIKE WHAT HAPPENED IN HISTORY?! DON’T LET IT REPEAT IN THE PRESENT!
End rant… I think.
NOPE! More stupid people on the internet. Thanks Facebook feed!
I just saw where someone even tried to compare the fact that we still have “mass killings” in America with what is happening in Iraq. Along with this argument there was “#ferguson #icantbreathe #blacklivesmatter”. Any chance to throw that out there, right guys (white female said it before anyone jumps on the “you people” bandwagon)? The scope of events involving some bad cops across the nation, and mind you the shooting of Michael Brown was proven justified on every judicial level it reached so its moot, is nothing compared to the bloodbath that has occurred since DAESH moved into Iraq. Literally, executing people in the streets, not just using a chokehold in an attempt to subdue a man, but rather burning a man alive in a cage while filming it to send a message. The two are so completely incomparable that you’d might as well compare the Holocaust to summer camp. Fucking ridiculous!
Ok, so now I’m done ranting.
Seriously though, I wish this country could see the danger it’s allowing to brew by not intervening. We’re asking for an eventual terror attack to land on our soil by not disposing of DAESH while we have the chance. If only people could stop arguing about what to refer to them as for five minutes, maybe they would see what mess it is over there. But like most things in our current day and age, if its not right in front of us, we’re too blind to see it.
Stay hidden; stay safe.
