Our Thoughts and Prayers go out to the Victims II


In the wake of the terrible tragedy which has occurred in London, with a man ploughing a van into a crowd outside a mosque, The XYZ would like to extend its sorrow to the victims of this terrible tragedy.

Obviously, it is too early to say if this is a terrorist incident. Only those wishing to stir up hatred would jump to conclusions.

Clearly, this has nothing to do with white nationalism, as white nationalism is not about murdering those deemed to belong to an outgroup, but merely the promotion of ingroup preference.

Clearly this has nothing to do with European values, either. Indeed, as all XYZ readers would well be aware, Europe has no values, other than inclusion, openness, tolerance, and diversity. As such an act goes against these principles, the perpetrator cannot be said to be European.

This terrible tragedy cannot be allowed to undermine our multiculturalism. Our diversity is our strength.

This will not divide us.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims.

    These things are just a fact of life when you live in the city, right? The real shame here is that the victims weren’t more diverse. Nothing to see here. Keep calm and pay your taxes.

    The MSM was actually surprisingly quick to label this “terrorism” (with scare quotes to indicate they’re just repeating what “others” are saying and should not be held accountable if wrong). Reports I read were also keen to point out (several times) that the apparent terrorists were ‘white’.

    It will be interesting to see the fallout of this incident, and to hear the facts as they come to light. Terrorists don’t usually bring a couple of accomplices along for the ride, only to have them run away. I wonder if there were in on it or if they just managed to score the worst Uber driver ever.

    Shouldn’t we address the underlying causes that drive — no pun — people like Anders Breivik and the perpetrator of this recent attack towards such actions?

    We need far-right outreach NGO’s with lots of state funding to prevent further attacks and to be vigilant when it comes to possible backlash the far-right community might face.

    What’s that you say? A Christian disagrees with same sex marriage?

    Damn Christians and all their ilk, they are worse than Hitler. How dare those regressive homophobic terrorists breath the same as us wonderful progressives. Christianity is the enemy in my quest to normalize pedophilia. Who are they? Christians!!!

  • I don’t even bother myself to read past the Headline now, if it
    mentions terror, or The War Against Terror (TWAT).
    After all, being run over by Terrorist berserkers or having your throat slashed, or taking some AK 47 bullets in the head, is just part and parcel of living in a big city.
    We really need to get used to it, you know, it’s like avoiding that doggy doo on the footpath.
    Just step around it and continue on.
    It’s all part of our lovely blossoming Diversity.

    Thoughts and prayers??? My utter contempt and unbridled hatred goes out to the Mohammedans who got a taste of their own medicine in London today. May the Crusaders of old arise from their slumber and slaughter without mercy, every last pig Muslim in Europe.

    Hmm, I see what you did there.
