Terror Supportin’ IRRITANT

What might be the agenda of a particular ABC presenter who urges us to regard terrorism as merely an ”irritant”?

It’s so irritating when your legs are blown off  (Andrew Bolt)

Tim Blair

Islamic go-to guy Waleed Aly – currently appearing on the Ten Network, on ABC radio, on ABC television and in the Fairfax press – has theories about the muted reporting following this week’s Boston Marathon bombing:

The most encouraging one is that we’re finally maturing in the way we handle terrorism. 

Well, that’s just great. We’re maturing! Yay.

If it helps: “Wally is… lecturer at the global terrorism research centre at Monash University.”

Update:

Gone is the triumphalist rhetoric of the ‘’War on Terror’’, with its ridiculous promises of a terrorism-free world and the ultimate victory of freedom over tyranny. In its place is a far more sober, pragmatic recognition that terrorism is a perpetual irritant, and that while it is tragic and emotionally lacerating, it kills relatively few people and is not any kind of existential threat.

Except to those who no longer exist, such as the victims of 9/11, the Bali bombings, the Madrid train attacks, the London underground slaughter and a vast number of more recent Islamist assaults on western targets. Waleed, being a mature type, knows how we dumb rubes react to these irritants:

Let’s clear something up: our responses to terrorism are not about the loss of innocent life. We think they are because that’s the first thing we talk about. We use the suffering of victims to emote, and we look at the attacks through that prism. But it’s never really about the victims. It’s about us.

The victims might have more to say if they were, you know, alive. Further Waleed notions on media reticence:

It’s possible, too, that this reticence is a product of the very real suspicion that the [Boston] perpetrators here are self-styled American patriots. At this point, most analysts are leaning that way … Maybe we’re speaking in more hushed tones because our own societies might just be implicated.

Here’s an example of “hushed tones” regarding a certain self-styled American patriot.

    HOW DARE HE!!!

  2. Terrorism is killing or maiming hordes of randomly selected (and therefore innocent) victims because your god told you to.

    It’s extortion, and that’s alwaysa crime, not an “irritant” we have to “mature” in dealing with (i.e: to learn to become better victims of)!

    So, according to this lecturer at the global terrorism research centre at Monash University (aka the crime apologist indoctrination centre) we aren’t discussing the Boston Marathon atrocity in the media, NOT because they media and Boston police aren’t telling us any thing, but because the lefty enemedia put out the false-flag scenario that it *might* be home-grown right-wing White supremacists?!

    Funny how that notion just cleared up with the clear evidence that it was carried out by Chechnyan MOSLEM terrorists backed by IRAN!

  3. “We use the suffering of victims to emote, and we look at the attacks through that prism.”

    Who is ‘we’? I’m not an associate of any highly polished turd and those concepts do not gel. People look at the results of terrorism and make judgements about the results and motivations and characters of the perpetrators.

    ” But it’s never really about the victims. It’s about us.”
    I have no doubt that is true for muslim apologist Walid Aly – but once again he’s showing his amazing arrogance to assume that other people think the way he does.

    1. Turds like the insufferable Wally are on TV because of progressive (see Pat Condell vid for definition!) self-hating lefty loons who delude themselves with multicultural one world govt. fantasies.

      That creatures like Wally (or like his sidekick Anthony Loewenstein) get airtime just proves the decline of our culture & civilisation.
