A spokesperson for several European governments has today announced what has been described as a ‘bold’ plan to streamline the response to terrorist attacks which are increasing in frequency on the continent. In future, terrorist attacks across Europe will only be responded to in an official capacity on a weekly basis, from a central point, most likely Brussels. This procedure is expected to reduce waste, increase efficiency, enhance security and deepen cooperation between European States.
The European spokesperson explained:
‘As you would all be aware, the approach by European governments to the opportunity we face by this new challenge of terrorism has been to avoid confronting the root cause, and instead manage the public narrative surrounding the issue. Such an innovative approach should help us improve on our planned outcomes in this area.
‘Moving into areas of greater programmatic specificity, we find that the phrase ‘our hearts go out to all the families of the victims,’ (although a far less problematic phrase than ‘our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims,’ as it is far less exclusionary) still tends to lose much of its meaning when repeated by half a dozen different government officials of various countries dotted across Europe, in the space of a week. We feel we would be far better able to convey the impression that the government is proactive towards the challenges of violent extremism if we were able to make one statement, once a week, saying something along the lines of “our hearts go out to the families of the victims in Nice, Normandy, Munich, wherever.”
‘Furthermore, we are finding it far more difficult to divert people’s attention from the fact that many Muslims are murdering people because of their faith, when we are forced to respond to such murders committed by Muslims on an almost daily basis. Thus, this more measured approach of only talking about it once a week, should assist in broadening social harmony in Europe, and further our determination to exterminate the white race.
‘Finally, we feel it is a far better use of European bureaucrats’ time, experience and expertise to be finding ways to spend money we don’t have on people who don’t deserve it, rather than having to respond to every little act of mass murder.’
Several unconfirmed reports suggest that websites affiliated with the Islamic State have claimed responsibility for this latest act of European government policy.
It’s your XYZ.
