“Alexandre, before being a killer, he was a victim also,” Imam Hassan Guillet said.
“Before shooting bullets into the heads of his victims, somebody planted ideas, more dangerous than the bullets, in his head.”
This, dear children, is why we don’t play with guns.
When you lash out violently (even against those whom you rightly perceive to be threats), something will happen that is more important than what you had anticipated. It’s more than the law of unintended consequences. It’s beyond Murphy’s Law.
As George Orwell wrote in his essay, “Politics and the English Language”
In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defence of the indefensible. . . . Thus political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness. . . . The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. Where there is a gap between one’s real and one’s declared aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms.
What will happen is that your actions will be radically reinterpreted to fit the narrative of the anti-white, anti-Christian mythmakers who govern Western society.
One of the most powerful words they use in their language of doublespeak is “victim.” Claiming victim status or assigning it to others enables the mythmakers to rid the alleged victim of moral agency, and to assign responsibility for whatever happened to the victim to someone else. Usually we see society’s “have nots” wear their victim status as a get-out-of-jail-free card. Inner-city blacks aren’t responsible for the property they destroy or the people they rape and kill. They’re victims of a white supremacist society! The legacy of slavery! Colonial oppression! And so on. Women aren’t responsible for the abysmal marriage rates in this country, or the horrifying incidence of abortion. They’re victims of the patriarchy! Lack of access to contraception! Objectified in a male sexist culture! Etc, etc.
Now I know it may sound counterintuitive to some, but the fact that the alleged murderer of six Muslims at a Quebec City mosque Jan. 30 is being labeled a “victim” is bad news for you and me. Why?
First off — and this is a basic conservative argument so I’ll be brief — the modern tendency to absolve people of responsibility for their actions can only end in irresponsible individuals and a weak, helpless society. That’s bad for everybody, and it is in direct contradiction to Scripture, which teaches us that we each bear responsibility for all of our thoughts, words, and actions (both commission and omission).
Second, if the alleged killer did in fact murder people in cold blood, and both society and the legal system do not make him bear responsibility for his actions, justice will not be met. And let’s be explicit for the sake of our detractors: Christian white people don’t go killing people in cold blood. We condemn such behavior. We disavow those who commit such crimes. Anyone who murders should bear the penalty for that action, regardless of his race. That’s God’s standard.
Third, and most importantly for you and me: If this young man is a “victim,” who then are the real bad guys in this scenario? The imam quoted above made it clear who the bad guys are: you and me. The bad guys are people like us who point out obvious truths about the incompatibility of Islam and Western civilization. People who oppose mass migration by said Muslims and other Third Worlders into the West. Those who object to the daily, widespread, ever-intensifying incidence of black-on-white assault, rape, and murder. Those who wish to preserve the safe, decent, godly neighborhoods and civilization that our grandparents inherited and that they and our parents have been giving away ever since.
Look at what the imam said. He said our ideas are more dangerous than the bullets that the alleged attacker fired at his unsuspecting targets. We all know that in Canada, bullets and firearms are pretty tightly regulated. They’re outlawed in many cases. You can go to prison (or in America, even get executed) for using them in ways that the government doesn’t like. They’re held in constant, abiding suspicion by the government, media, and culture.
Just like you and me.
The last thing Western civilization needs is to become a victim of its own victim status. If some of us become victims, the rest of us become criminals. And once we become criminals solely by virtue of our race, our religion, our ideology, or our words, it’s gulag time.
Goys, we have to do a better job of reaching these woke people and steering them in a direction that benefits, not hurts, our people. To paraphrase an old song: Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be lone wolves.
