It’s no longer a matter of debate. There is no longer any room for argument or ambiguity.
The official voices of the western leftist intelligentsia are officially and undisguisedly head over heels in love with Islamist fascism.
We knew it all along, of course, but they had always been careful to plant their weeds in a verdant forest of disclaimers and disavowals, and to pretend they were just giving all sides a fair hearing.
Perhaps they even had a few doubts about it themselves, at one time. Who knows, or cares?
There’s no doubt whatever now. They’re out and proud and in love. Like Baader-Meinhof in love. Like Red Brigade in love.
It’s odd that they should have fallen quite so head over heels on the face of it, given the objects of their ardour are not cool, beret and bandana-wearing Marxists, but medievalist religious no-funs whose ideas on homosexuality, women’s rights, capital punishment and almost everything else are utterly antithetical to everything they pretend to cling to.
All they have going for them are a) most of them are brown or brown-ish, and b) they hate us.
And for these unbelievable fools, that’s good enough.
We few, we sane few, on hearing the appalling news of the Kenyan massacre, knew it was only a matter of time before the waters broke, and the articles started appearing in The Guardian and The Independent and the New York Times offering up their own 'perspectives': excusing, exculpating, misattributing motive.
Some of us even lay cynical bets on which excremental British journalist would be the first to indulgently explain what their ‘grievances’ were, or blame Israel, or both.
That the terrorists would be called 'militants' at all times on the BBC and throughout the British media was of course a given, but this, from Giles Foden in The Guardian, surely goes above and beyond the call of relativist and distractionist duty, and then some:
Al-Shabaab is responding, specifically, to Kenyan involvement in a joint African peacekeeping force (Amisom) in Somalia. But like al-Qaida before it (the two groups linked formally in 2011), al-Shabaab is really attacking the very idea of capitalism.
Oh, so that's what they are responding to!
But beyond that obvious and specific motivation for slaughtering innocent kids in a shopping mall and ripping out people's eyes and ears (a Kenyan involvement in a joint African peacekeeping force in Somalia: enough to make anyone start killing kids), Boden has found their essential goal: like al-Qaida before it, al-Shabaab is really attacking the very idea of capitalism. Not kids, at least not as such. The idea of capitalism. Just in the form of kids.
Vive la révolution putain.
It’s important because The Guardian is the absolute foremost voice of the mainstream left in Britain. It’s the only newspaper in which the BBC advertises its job vacancies.
It is, for a huge number of blithering idiots, the voice of reason.
And the future of the country was doing what, do you think, while the rest of us were getting our world news filtered through the undergraduate agit-prop prism, and fed through the leftist claptrap sausage machine?
Let’s find out, by taking a trip to a British mall, and see what scenes were unfolding at around the same time.
No machine guns here, you'll notice, but plenty of brain dead slaves to nihilist ideology, and all taking on the very idea of capitalism with fifty quid heroically liberated from their mothers' handbags, an old woman's feeble grasp or the coffers of the poor and needy, to spend on a computer game in which they can win points by raping prostitutes, shooting policemen and torturing people by tearing their teeth out with pliers.
If you have any doubt that the red carpet for fanaticism being prepared by the gullible media class will be laid out without opposition or comprehension, just look at this dribble-chinned row of condom-splits, waiting excitedly to distract themselves from the hell outside their windows with a virtual one of their own choosing.
Postscript 30/9/13: And the Guardian triumphs again. Try reading this without puking your liver up.
