#BlackLivesMatter and Mizzou Activists Complain ISIS Stole Their Spotlight

Breitbart has a scathing report on how the #BlackLivesMatter crowd and the Missouri activists responded to the horrific events in France:

Campus activists in America showed their true faces during an international tragedy last night: they are the selfish, spoiled children we always knew they were.

Black Lives Matter and Mizzou protesters responded to the murder of scores of people in Paris at the hands of Islamic extremists by complaining about losing the spotlight and saying their “struggles” were being “erased.” Their struggles, remember, consist of a poop swastika of unknown provenance and unsubstantiated claims of racially-charged remarks somewhere near Missouri’s campus.

So debased has the language on American campuses become that these incidents, which many observers believe to be hoaxes, just like previous campus scandals celebrated by progressive media, are being referred to as “terrorism” and a “tragedy” by moronic 20-year-olds who have never been told, “No.”

It’s Time to Give Jihadists the Apocalypse They Want

Last night, David and I were driving downtown Nashville to an event for Show Hope, an organization that provides orphan care.  On the way, David intently listened to the radio as the details of the tragedy in Paris unfolded. When we got to the lovely event, it was hard to focus on the fun (though David tried).  It felt like something in the world was different.

Once we got the the event, he went off with his iPad and posted this on National Review about Paris.  First, he said that this is the type of multi-pronged attack he’d feared for many years, since ISIS has been allowed to grow and thrive.

Here are some of his points:

Francois Hollande is pledging to wage “pitiless” war. Good. Now let’s see if France backs up its words with actions. While France is often the butt of jokes about its military prowess, it not only has a centuries-old tradition of military valor, it breeds warriors still. May they be unleashed.


…if European leaders (and the Obama administration) retain a shred of sanity, they’ll rethink their approach to the migrant crisis and start to close their borders, quickly. There are almost certainly more terrorists who have recently arrived in European capitals, awaiting only weapons, organization, and an opportunity to launch the next attack.


… look for more firefights in Paris as the French police and military likely launch a crackdown orders of magnitude more potent than the crackdown after the Charlie Hebdo attack. If French intelligence services have been monitoring nascent terror cells, look for them to strike hard and fast to forestall any future attacks. For the time being, the gloves will come off.

And lastly,

… my heart breaks for the victims of tonight’s savage attacks. France is our oldest ally, Paris is among the world’s most beautiful cities, and it is horrifying to think that its streets now run red with the blood of the innocent. May God bless and comfort the families of the fallen, and may God strengthen the hands of France’s warriors. It is time to grant ISIS the apocalypse it longs for.
