Same Ol’

It seems like every day there’s a terrorist attack somewhere. That’s bad enough, but people have gotten so used to hearing about them on the news that it’s become ‘old hat.’ I don’t mean any disrespect when I write that.

Get used to it

Instead, I mean to suggest that people are getting desensitized to attacks. Though not always, the recent story seems to play out the same:

  • A “lone wolf” plans and executes an attack
  • ISIS claims responsibility
  • Upon investigation, it’s discovered that the maniac was on police radar for making threats before, but (for whatever reason) no one took him seriously
  • Politicians call for a crack-down on terrorism
  • People swear a fanatic religion is not to blame, though adherents of the religion never denounce the attacks
  • A hashtag is created (#Prayfor (insert city here)
  • Rise and repeat

I, for one, am getting tired of this charade. It’s time we take real action to prevent terror attacks, and dole out real punishment in their wake: for the perpetrators, their families, and anyone else who could have stopped their plans from becoming a dismal reality – including the keystone cops who always seem to look the other way. Enough!

  1. I came here to give you “one last shot,” but I see your alt-right slant continues. This blog is trash.

      It remains a free country (for now). If you don’t like what you read, stop visiting.

      • That’s what I just said, moron. You’re just like the rest of these conservative fearmongers. You try to act like you’re unbiased, but then you let your true colors show.

    How so? I’m interested.

    • You talk about ‘religionists,’ but then you have a photo of angry Muslims.

        First of all, I have no control over the pictures or captions that accompany my articles. Second, how do you know they’re Muslim? Now look who’s doing the judging.

  3. Don’t try to get out of this, you little rat. You’re just the same as anyone else.

    Listen, douche, if I catch you making a comment on here again, I’ll spar with you again, and I’ll win again. You’re also welcome to come to the office at any time. I’d be happy to break your jaw.
