People’s Thoughts On Yet Another Day Of Bullshit In France
Submitted by: lalapancakes⚫ 9 months ago
These fucking times, man. Every day it's devastation and tragedy over some invisible space misogynist, over some nosey ass racist, over the haves and have nots, over gender arguments, over nationalism and pridefulness, over people who can’t get over them damned selves. I want to walk around and slap the hell out of all of these divisionists, segregationists, and fundamentalists. I know we're all are getting sick of this shit and want it to stop.
In light of another day of mourning for France, here’s some thoughts from people I do not know who are frustrated like the rest of us. I may and may not agree with them but it doesn't matter…
1. IF YOU ARE IN FRANCE: Hospital are in need of blood. Please donate blood and save lives!.”
2. “Contrary to what you hear suggested it's not the Syrian Refugees/Levantines doing the things you hear it's usually Algerians/Maghrebis.
Not to throw them to the wolves but there's a fair bit of bad blood between France and Algerians because of the whole Colony and War thing. Many Algerians move to France for a better life but don't integrate into French society because they feel like France "owes" them for all their historical mistreatment, much of which involved the French language and culture being forced on them. This, combined with the sort of latent racism you'd expect to thrive in a situation like this, has led to a large population of undigested Algerians that has grown in France for decades now.
The rise of ISIS has just caused a select few members of this group to turn violent.”
3. “Go after the countries that keep funneling money for terrorism. Saudi Arabia is first on that list.”
4 “Every time there's a tragedy like this, there is a common sentiment of helpless in these threads. However, I think there is something we can do - maybe the only thing we as individuals can do, and that is to discuss the facts surrounding these tragedies objectively and without political bias or fear of what the facts imply. We need to realize we're not simply having a streak of bad luck, and that the perpetrators of these crimes are not deranged madmen who act without reason.
But here I am, also reluctant to point out the commonality between nearly all of the terrorist attacks to afflict us of late, in fear of being labeled a bigot.”.
5. “Everyone knows that radical Islam is the common theme behind these attacks.
Why I, for one, don't support extending blame and subsequent heavy-handed law enforcement to all Muslims is simply because I am convinced that it will not only not work, but it will make the problem much, much worse.
I don't give a shit whether something is PC or not. I care about results, and I - speaking only for myself - am certain that alienating more Muslims in western countries is the absolute, absolute worse course of action.
(And fantasies about deporting all Muslims are simple that - fantasies. Utterly and completely impossible, from multiple angles. So, they're a non-starter - not only are they reprehensible, but they would be disastrously impossible to attempt).”
6. “We breath the same air as these fuckers, but we don't seem to be from the same planet.”
7. “I would say religion is the problem. Overall there's always this we against them for religious people. Look in to Christianity and you'll find the same thing as you find in Islam. The context of both books are similar. Isis is taking religion to a terrorist level and it is horrible, still to just say war and extremists only comes from Islam is way too narrow. Imagine if there wouldn't be any religious groups at all. The discussion would be held at a totally different level. It's impossible to actually have a sane conversation with anyone who believes in their God. The reality check just isn't there. I'm still confused why leading countries such as U.S. allows it in their politics. I say fuck all religious people, you can't talk normally to any of them.”
