  1. ABM

    Pope Benedict XVI’s Regensburg lecture, September 2006:

    “Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached”.

    These words outraged the Irish and international establishment media – it wasn’t so much the thoughts conveyed in the words that caused mass outrage, it was that the head of the Catholic Church was the one doing the imparting and not The State (who believe they are the only ones who decide what is right and what is wrong). Many of the journos whose opinion pieces and sentimental tat you’re currently reading were busy writing anti-catholic drivel and personalised attacks against Pope Benedict in 2006 (e.g. irrelevant pieces about his appearance, desperate lies about his informative years, misinterpretations of his public statements, over-emphasis of unimportant matters, under-reporting of significant statements, over-exaggeration of his conservativism, etc.). They wrote about everything bar the kernel of truth embedded in his words. For a deep fear of the Truth lies inside them. A deep fear that they will one day be judged. I guess they were too busy plugging property ads back then. Though I suspect they were just ignorant of his rich, concise, precise and expressive language and found themselves incapable of relaying this to their 30-second-attention-span readers.

    B16 gave us a clear warning that you chose to ignore – the West thought they knew better. The mass sentimentality, the public expressions of solidarity, the Facebook pronouncements, all ring hollow.

    Enough of the hysteria. Catch them, throw them in prison and arm the population. That would soon put a stop to these jihaadhist dope smokers.

      I preferred the old ABM. He was just a bit of a holy Joe. This bloke is scary.

      “arm the population”, heh?! Guns are the answer, huh?? Yeah, that’ll show them gun-toting nuts, if we were also gun-toting nuts…
