They Arent 'Peace' Protesters To Me
Norman Kember. He's not a 'peace' protester. He is an anti-American 'stability' protester. He and his pals didnt protest in Tibet at Chinese forced sterilisation of the population - because he and his friends dont give a shit about Communist oppressors because they are Communists by any other name. They didnt go to East Timor to get in the way of the Islamic genocide of the Christian population, because they like Islamists over their own kind any day. They didnt go to Darfur to experience life as a Christian in a concentration camp where gang rape and casual murder by Muslims against Christians and Animists is a part of daily life. They sure as shit didnt go to Kurdistan (as it will one day be truly called if there's any justice) to get in Saddam's way when he exterminated 30,000 Kurds in an afternoon using some of those WMDs that Kember's organisation would like us to be believe he never had.
So mass murder is fine by old Norm. Genocide by gun is fine. Genocide by sterilisation is fine. But intervention to stop those things, well that raises the ire of Kember and his ilk. So explain how they are for peace, would somebody? They arent for peace. All they are 'for' is ignoring the lunatics who murder millions in the name of religion or racial purity, all in the name of 'stability'. They are the voice of nothing but nihilism and self-hatred of their own shining culture.
Which brings us to probably the new Millenium's most famous 'peace' Martyr, Rachel Corrie, pictured above in all her 'peaceful' glory. Burning an American flag covered over with nice Israeli stars. Who died under the wheels of an Israeli bulldozer whilst trying to stop it from destroying a smuggler's tunnel which was being used to bring in terrorist weapons for use in murdering the driver's countrymen.
Except that that wasnt what she was really doing of course. What she was doing for herself was of course nothing to do with heroics on behalf of the Palestinian people, because to people like Corrie people like the Palestinians (or the Iraqis to Kember) are really and truly nothing but savages to be manipulated and ministered to like the fuzzywuzzies of old.
That is what the Corries and Kembers of this world really are, you see. They are the new missionaries, narcissistically spreading their 'gospel' of anti-Americanism, hatred of the west and democracy in general, and of course lets not forget preaching that old adage, Zionist control of the wurrrrrrld baby!
You think I'm off base? Take a good look at the photo. Make Corrie a fire and brimstone missionary preacher of yore, surrounded by loincloth-clad African children instead of Palestinian ones, exhorting them to wipe out the neighbouring tribe who have refused to convert. You can always tell a true fanatic from someone like me who is, for example, simply really pissed off. A true fanatic has no concept of any reality outside their own 'closed loop' as it might be called, to borrow from a British politician on whose most recent pronouncements I will post later. A true fanatic has little interest in the opinions of others, or indeed interacting with those outside their closed loop at all.
That's why people like Corrie don't ever try to convince the public at large of their views. They are never to be found in honest debate with the opposition - not for them is the thorny task of presenting logical argument. That is why they gravitate to populations such as the Palestinians - the useful idiots, those whose societies encourage, reward and promote all the worst kinds of savage and crude demagoguery. Because, far from being a courageous, bold or moral move, it is the easy way out for the Rachel Corrie's of this world to go where they know they will be received with adulation to feed their fanatic narcissism, just as the photograph above illustrates.
Look long at that scene. There is nothing of 'peace' in Rachel Corrie's face, just as there was nothing of peace in her actions. There was only ever hatred - hatred of her birthplace, and by extension hatred of all those allied to it, the chief of which is of course in the ISM's eyes those evil Joooooooz. The International Solidarity Movement, the 'peace' organisation she worked for is literally a terrorist organisation who have in the past not only stored weapons and ammunition at their offices in Israel but have even been caught sheltering wanted terrorists, obstructed Israeli security forces from capturing them and in the most shameful incident of all, lionised and hosted terrorists from abroad before they went and murdered innocent Jews.
What kind of 'peace' organisation is it that throws parties for terrorists the night before they murder in a kind of bizarre Last Supper ritual? The answer of course is that it is not a 'peace' organisation at all. It is a hate organisation every bit as reprehensible as the Klan or the Nation of Islam. And Corrie was an exemplar of that hatred - obsessed, closeminded, and blind to everything but her own need to feel vindicated and praised by her 'closed loop' of likeminded friends and the useful idiots she claimed to be helping.
