Before Saying, “I Support France,” Please Read This

by | Nov 15, 2015

Unless or until you start to rethink your stance, you have no business expressing compassion towards the victims of people in attacks whose perpetrators – knowingly or not – you aid and support via your positions.

Please don’t say things like, “I stand with France,” or “Those poor French people, victims of that attack!” unless you’re prepared to say and do the following things:

Stop saying “Islam” is about peace and love. It’s not. It’s about submission; the people who really get this are the ones who launch these attacks in the name of their religion.

Stop supporting politicians like Obama, who insist that Islamic nations like Iran have our same fundamental values and can be trusted with billions of dollars in unfrozen assets (Obama’s treaty), and who don’t mean what they say when they want to wipe Israel off the map.

Stop saying we don’t really need a strong military and we cannot, under any circumstances, use the full might of our military arsenal to do things to stop militant Islam in its tracks, to quite literally scare the Allah out of these people.

Unless or until you start to rethink your stance, you have no business expressing compassion towards the victims of people in attacks whose perpetrators – knowingly or not – you aid and support via your positions.

The president of France calls the attacks in Paris by militant ISIS supporters an “act of war.” Excuse me? Haven’t we been at war since at least 9/11? Even going back as far as 1979, when the first openly organized Islamic government, Iran, took Americans hostage and brutalized them for a year before setting them free?

We’re not supposed to admit we’re at war with Islam. But Islam has been at war with everyone else for decades now. And it’s not going to stop.

I am so sick of people saying, “We can’t fight terrorism with violence. We have to understand them and figure out what makes them act this way.”

Envy, brutality and collectivist/social/racial hatred are what make them act this way. They’re not going to change, and they’re not going to stop. By trying to appease and understand them every chance we get, they interpret this as weakness, because it is, from their point-of-view. They respond with more brutality. They’re not ever going to stop, any more than Hitler and the Nazis would have stopped if, instead of taking them on directly, we had said, “Let’s try to understand them.”

You cannot defeat a morally certain enemy without moral certainty. But we do not live in an age of moral self-assertion. It’s considered mean, unkind and politically incorrect.

You do not have moral certainty if you keep insisting that your enemy really does not mean it.

Stop waiting for the “moderate” or life-loving Muslims to come out of the closet and morally condemn their violent brethren. These moderates are nowhere to be found. Either they do not exist, or they’re too weak or frightened to take on the people who do these things in the name of their faith-based philosophy.

Obama has stated that these attackers do not share certain basic, universal values with the rest of us. But Obama is the one who insists we cannot really fight terrorists because they operate underground, without state-sanctioned armies, and the like.

Obama is the same one who gave away America’s credibility and unfroze billions in assets to the government of Iran, the one actual government known to sponsor and morally support Islamic terrorism around the world. What business does he have expressing outrage and horror? He might as well be on their side. Because he makes life easier for them, through things like this insane treaty he rammed by the Congress.

So before you rush to show others how sad and angry you are about what happened in Paris, stop to think of the ideas, attitudes and elected officials you’ve been supporting.

Ideas have consequences, and if you support the wrong ones, this is what you get.

The views expressed above represent those of the author and do not necessarily represent the views of the editors and publishers of Capitalism Magazine. Capitalism Magazine sometimes publishes articles we disagree with because we think the article provides information, or a contrasting point of view, that may be of value to our readers.


  1. Completely disagree. ISIS is a direct result of US intervention in the affairs of others. Remember the words of SecState John Quicy Adams,

    “But [America] goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. She will commend the general cause by the countenance of her voice, and the benignant sympathy of her example. She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication, in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy, and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom. The fundamental maxims of her policy would insensibly change from liberty to force…. She might become the dictatress of the world. She would be no longer the ruler of her own spirit….”

  2. Couldn’t happen to a nicer group of people.

    Karma’s a real b_tch ain’t it France?

    I would be overjoyed if all terrorist attacks were limited to this one country.

  3. Some wise words from J.Q. Adams; however, I did not understand with what you “completely disagree” in this article. I found his description of Islam and its motivations to be spot on, at least in those regards he mentioned, but maybe you meant something else.

  4. Well…true enough that France’s perspective might change now that this crap has landed on their doorstep. However, as to “limited to this one country”, it reminds me of when terror was “Israel’s problem” and we hoped it would be limited to that one country. Now it is France’s problem. It will not stop there.

  5. Since you go back to the Founders, it’s worth noting that Islam began attacking the USA shortly after the Declaration of Independence was signed. This was a new target to force into submission to Islam. Many other great nations, such as England, had already capitulated and were paying the Jizya to not be attacked.

    Thomas Jefferson read his Koran and spoke with an ambassador from the Muslim Empire to learn their motive. Quite simply, he was told, it’s their belief that all must submit to Islam by choice or by conquest.

    So, Jefferson recommended to Congress the creation of a marine fighting force to go kill the cr*p out of the Muslims until they backed off. It worked, for a while.

    They started it. Now, they’re back at it. You try to conceal their motives by casting them as only responding to others. False premise.

  6. Here is a part of the 1786 letter from Adams and Jefferson:

    “The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their
    prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should
    not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their
    right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and
    to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every
    musselman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

  7. These Islamists have been attacking, Indonesia, China, Russia, Italy, France, Germany, Britain, the USA, Iraq, Afghanistan… the list goes on.

    Those who do not submit to Islam will be attacked. That’s the game.

  8. So there were Muslim pirates. There were Christian pirates too. The largest concentration of Muslims are in Pakistan, India and Indonesia. Those countries aren’t trying to conquer the world.

  9. ISIS is a direct manifestation of ISLAM. The main reason for this islamic push is based on mahomet, the false prophet’s prophecy that the muslim ummah will not be without a caliph (pope) for more than 100 years, due in 2028.

    Turkey is the main culprit, seeking to re-establish the “empire” destroying all borders in the middle east, including that of Israel’s. Turkey is aided by Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States. There is a shia and sunni clash to claim the leadership of the “empire”, that is why the sunni muslims want Assad out of the way since he consorts with Iran and Hezbollah.

    Obama convinced the west that this is what they must do to please their Saudi Arabian “friends” so that in return the west could retain its right to purchase oil from Arabia and other trade, whom promised in return to reject all Russian and Chinese influence in the ME.

    The Western leaders are in the main marxist arseholes, with their brains fried by the luxury of their lives and think it is acceptable to take the European taxpayers money to the tune of 3 billion euros a year and give it to Turkey in the misguided belief or hope that Turkey in turn would start behaving itself and not send all the muslims through to europe and to stop the conduit of terrorism that Turkey is. This is hoping for far too much and that money will be used to by the muslims to jihad the kaffirs some more, as usual.

    Thus Turkey is black mailing the dhimmi wit europeans into paying “taxes” to them, and extorting them at the same time by demanding entry into the EU as a member, and that all Turkish citizens, all 78 million obtain visa free entry to Europe. Slam dunk for Turkey!

    While Turkey is furious because Putin is destroying Erdogan’s hopes in syria by destroying his FSA and Turkmen islamic jihadists who are assisting ISIS with the sale of stolen oil and sending weapons through to other islamic jihadists including ISIS. Turkey is the 8th largest producer of arms in the world. While Saudi Arabia purchased $9 billion worth of arms from the USA in 2014.
    Obama, the islamomarxist, was hoping to give ISIS and crime co about 30 years to establish themselves properly with his fake war on ISIS. Now today, the Turk and Saudi Arabia jihadists are called western-backed rebels. But there will be no peace in the Middle East until all muslim militia are totally destroyed, and that means that both Turkey and Saudi Arabia and perhaps even Jordan be destroyed alongside with them. Turkey is the POS.

  10. You are absolute correct, Michael Hurd, it is the leaders and politicians who are criminal in their failure and neglect to protect and serve the people that pay their salaries. They do what they wilt and give not a feather about the voice of the masses, and this will be to their own detriment and for our civilisation. People like Hollande are standing up to Merkel and have realised that something is terribly wrong. Perhaps this attack on Paris has shattered his paradigm about muslims. But at the end of the day, France is still attacking its own indigenous citizens for rejecting islam and muslims, as are most of the rest of the West. This amounts to nothing less than treason and aiding and abetting the enemies. The marxist progressive stance is going to a dangerous extreme right now.
