One thing is very clear from the many crazed acts of violence by Islamic State sympathisers in and from the West. That is that the medieval death cult attracts the most tragic human flotsam imaginable. Many of the head hackers, cop stabbers, and soldier shooters featuring in recent news bulletins are certifiably mentally ill. And if not that they're clearly terminally stupid.
Take the "Ginger Jihadi" from Oz. Most seventeen year old Aussie blokes are meatheads, we all know that. But this guy makes even the most moronic beer swilling bogan seem whip smart in comparison.
Have a squizz at the video in which the fired up fighter threatens the West in general and Australia in particular. Abdullah Elmir is so impressionable that even though he's from Bankstown, he seems to have taken on the kind of pommy accent you'd hear in Londonistan. May be too long a bow, but it sounds to me like he's emulating IS's star head chopper "John the Beatle", the former rapper hailing from the Old Dart.
Elmir is one poor, sad bastard. He got sucked into something truly ugly and he hasn't a clue. Odds are he's gonna be blown to bits -- probably by his own hand, the doofus -- before too long ... Sad, because stupidity, while seriously limiting a person's life choices, isn't fatal in most cases.
Speaking of stupidity: When looking at an idiot like Elmir, I can't help thinking about greenies ...
Have another look at that vid. Check out the grim, primitive facial expressions of Elmir's fellow "freedom fighters". You'll see the same kind of child-brained idiocy in the eyes of the nature boyz and girlz assembled at, say, a stupid demo against Colin Barnett's shark mitigation policy. Those shark hugging ecotards, while undeniably sad, lost and extremely annoying, aren't nearly so dangerous as the black clad idiots for Islam. Green goons prefer bonging on to blowing themselves up, after all. Not keen to remove the heads of infidels, they just wanna get off their own!
It's pretty clear that the two malignant movements are targeting the same dim demographic. In recruiting the thick, angry, impressionable and clinically insane, the Middle Eastern death cult is actually poaching would be Greens voters.
That's why I hope Scott Ludlam and his ilk finally quit with the terrorist apologetics and take a stand against the head hackers. Not for any principled reason, mind. They are clearly incapable of that. No, they should do it for the most basic political motive of all: to ensure their own survival.
