Listen carefully for what sounds like an explosion at the football stadium:

  • Well, get used to scenes like this. The Islamist genie has permanently escaped the bottle. Or, to put it more accurately, the Islamist genie has been deliberately set free by the EU morons and multicultural wackos.

    After the Charlie Hebdo attacks carries out my Islamist terrorists our self-anointed moral and intellectual betters in academia and the media blamed … wait for it … Charlie Hebdo! I wonder who/what they will blame this time? A You-tube video? Global warming? Opposition to homosexual marriage? The NRA? Sarah Palin? A poop swastika found in a “safe space”? The mind boggles!

    Once again the religion of peace” shows us what it does best-killing in droves for no reason whatsoever. Now we will hear the question of “why”? The answer is so simple that only a few believe it-it was so ordered by the Koran because that’s the way Mohammed operated.

    And don’t believe for a second that these were rogue or misguided Muslims either-these pigs that committed this atrocity are THE most authentic Muslims because they faithfully followed their war manual (the Koran) to the letter and imitated their “perfect man” (Mohammed).

    I sincerely hope that all those who participated in this outrage will be eternally damned to hell for it. And I include all those idiot Progressives who enabled this to happen too because blood is also on their hands for inviting these butchers into France and kowtowing to their demands. See? Appeasement does NOT work-and it never will.

    BTW-You know what would be nice to see? French troops storming all those infamous no-go zones in Paris and finally taking out all that trash once and for all. Maybe then the people of Paris can finally get some peace at long last.

      Agreed wholeheartedly. ISIS is Islam in its purest form.

      Meanwhile, we’re bringing them here.

      • Appalled By The World says:

        That NEEDS to come to an end. The entire West needs to close the doors now. And start deportations-I don’t want to hear how it’s impossible either because it CAN be done. It’ll take time but that’s OK. All that’s needed is the will to do it.

        Right now I hope Progs everywhere are happy-this blood is on THEIR hands. They created all of the conditions to allow this to happen. Blame falls more on the Progs than it does on their Koranist allies in their Axis of Evil.
