So it has now been revealed that co-pilot of the Germanwings flight deliberately crashed the plane into the mountains and killed 149 people.

However, this hasn’t been labelled as an “act of terrorism”. The co-pilot was a 28 year old white German man, Andreas Lubitz. If he was a 28 year old Arab Muslim man called Mohammed, they would have labelled this disaster as an act of terrorism and linked him to Daesh or Al Qaeda.

There is such a double standard in media and politics. Nevertheless, 149 innocent people lost their lives including two babies and sixteen schoolchildren. My heart goes out to them all and inshallah they are all at peace. I send all my prayers to the families who have been left with this heartbreaking grief. I cannot begin to imagine how they must be feeling. I send my heartfelt sincere condolences to them all.

Stop asking the “Muslim community” or the “Muslim world” (what the fuck does this mean anyway? Are Indonesia, Turkey and Iraq the same homogenous countries? Have the same customs, practices, culture?) to condemn the Paris massacre, say that they are against it and do not support it. Stop asking them to organise big demonstrations to show that they are different. Stop asking them to clean up their mosques. Stop your orientalist and idiotic bullshit. Do you realize how wrong, offensive, hurtful and racist this is? Think for fuck’s sake. Think!
Are you asking all christians to show that they are not like Bush and Blair? To demonstrate against their murderous campaigns in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine…..? (that have killed many many many many many more people than ISIS and Al Qaeda combined) Are you?
Are you asking all buddhist to clearly state, before they even open their mouths, that they are against what is happening to the Rohingya people? Are you?

1.6 billion muslims in the world
And when you decide to hate them all, you’re playing into ISIS’s and al-Qaeda’s hands. They want people to think the west has an agenda against Islam. It’s not working. But when they attack and you hate innocent men, women and children, you’re making their work easier.

Don’t be stupid. Don’t be a pawn in their fucking cowards’ war.

Only going to say it once

I have to say that I am both disappointed and not surprised at Tumblr’s reaction and constant bitching about Chris Kyle, his book, and the movie adaptation.

It’s a crock of shit having to constantly see Chris’ name slandered by a bunch of ignorant, extremist liberal, children who don’t understand the sacrifices and decisions we service members down range have to make. Until you’ve deployed, and until you’ve faced those split-second life or death decisions, you do not have any sort of right to drag Chris Kyle’s name through the mud. Chris Kyle saved so many service members, both in Iraq and back home here in the states.

Had Chris Kyle acted outside of his ROE, not only would you have learned his name much longer ago (because it would be on every news outlet), but he would also be still alive and sitting on his ass in Fort Leavenworth Military Prison. But Chris was a trained professional with phenomenal trigger discipline, who knew the difference between a hostile target and an innocent civilian.

Yes, even that little boy and his mother were hostile targets. Why? The minute you pick up any sort of weapon and point it at US forces, you immediately become a hostile. If you start firing a weapon (or in this case tossing a grenade) at a patrolling platoon in a street, you WILL be killed. You are a threat.

Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, ISIS, Taliban, Al Nusra, and every other terrorist organization are the free world’s enemies. Anyone who sides with them, or helps them, is an enemy.

If you hate America so much, take your happy asses and get out. I’m pissed that I signed away my life to people who are so disgustingly un-patriotic and ungrateful for the sacrifices made for them to sit on this website and cry about everything.

Chris Kyle is a hero. Suck on that.

I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about him — and I nearly got him once. I nearly got him. And I could have killed him, but I would have to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and kill 300 innocent women and children, and then I would have been no better than him. And so I didn’t do it.

While “missed opportunities” to kill bin Laden have been previously reported, this is the first time an audio recording of Clinton’s remarks has been heard publicly.
