You have to have men who are moral… and at the same time who are able to utilize their primordial instincts to kill without feeling… without passion… without judgment… without judgment! Because it’s judgment that defeats us. (Col. Walter E. Kurtz, Apocalypse Now)

David Wong is always good with difficult subjects. Thanks for posting, Romantic Heretic. I think he’s absolutely right. Every word needs to be said and heard right now.

I thought I recognized that name. He is the author of “John Dies at the End.” Great mindfuck of a read.

He made some good points that most people will just ignore. My best friend is a Muslim female. She called me crying because she was heart broken over the attacks. Some of her co-workers told her that she should apologize for the attacks. One co-worker said she needed to write a post on facebook to make it clear she did not support them.

I told her when Timothy McVeigh blew up the Federal Building in Oklahoma, not a single American Christian apologized. Nor have I ever apologized for any abortion clinic bombing or any other evil thing a Christian has done. She is probably the kindest, sweetest woman I have ever met in my life, and my heart is just broken to see my friend hurt like this.

I feel helpless about the horror of what happened in France. I’m sorry, but changing the colors on my facebook profile photo just isn’t going to make me feel better. God Bless you people of France. The world stands behind you.

Also, thank you Charles for this website. The sickening hatred of Muslims has spread like a wildfire over the internet. This website is a oasis of sanity.

The terrorists are evil motherfuckers, my best friend is not. Fuck anyone who can’t see the difference.

re: #2 Eigth Immortal

Wong wrote another piece a few years ago that changed my perspective on things just a little. I link to it frequently in online debates.

Unsurprisingly few people actually understand it.

It also informed me that scientific research backed something I had suspected for years; that hate is addictive.

Bernie was right not to agree to the debate focus on foreign policy. With all the raw nerves from an indescribably evil event there would have been too many opportunities for a BENGHAZI! response. The best advice I’ve seen for commenting on the Paris Attacks is Elon White’s Law

RH, the article below just came through my Google Alerts and I think you’ll enjoy it as a sort of companion article. It echos some of the same points Wong made, but delves more deeply into how terrorism affects us psychologically.

The author is an atheist whose failure to blame the supposedly unique evils of Islam has annoyed Sam Harris and conservative Christians (who, naturally, claim he coddles Muslims *eyeroll*).

Anyway, without further ado: Three Simple Truths About Terror, Religion, and Islam

re: #7 CuriousLurker

Good article. I especially like his term ‘neuron bomb’. A very apt description of how out instincts smother out rationality.
