UPDATED 3/28/2015: (Probably) not a Muzzie; definitely a frustrated, depressed loser. Fox News:
The co-pilot Andreas Lubitz who steered an airline with 150 people on board into a French mountainside had been dumped by his girlfriend the day prior to the crash and was undergoing treatment for depression from a doctor, according to reports Saturday.
If I’m still around in 40 years, and if Western Civilization still exists in a recognizable form — both BIG ifs at this point — I’ll have a tough time explaining the Media Guessing Game to my grandkids.
Via Vox Day, the Germanwings mass murderer appears to be a Muzzie:
All evidence indicates that the copilot of Airbus machine in his six-months break during his training as a pilot in Germanwings, converted to Islam and subsequently either by the order of “radical”, ie. devout Muslims , or received the order from the book of terror, the Quran, on his own accord decided to carry out this mass murder. As a radical mosque in Bremen is in the center of the investigation, in which the convert was staying often, it can be assumed that he – as Mohammed Atta, in the attack against New York – received his instructions directly from the immediate vicinity of the mosque.
But as Vox notes, that’s vague and sensationalistic, and nobody hears him yelling “Allahu Akbar!” on the tapes that have been released so far.
On the other hand, this kind of thing is awfully consistent with Sudden Onset Jihad Syndrome.
On the other other hand, the Left and the media (BIRM) didn’t immediately start screaming “this has nothing to do with Islam!”, which is — so far– the surest tell that something is in fact all about Islam. So maybe he’s not a Muzzie after all.
On the other other other hand (please allow me four hands for rhetorical convenience), the Left and the media (BIRM) also haven’t started screeching about misogyny, which — as Vox notes here — is the likeliest non-Islamic scenario. If this guy were an airborne Eliot Rodger, you’d think we’d have heard about it by now. So score one in the “probably is a Muzzie” column.
Of course, a third possibility exists — maybe he’s just a random, non-ideological psycho. Alas, he’s German, so our completely objective, totally nonpartisan media is no help there. Had he been American, of course, MSNBC would’ve called him a Tea Partier before the debris stopped falling. At which point the usual rules would apply — if he ever complained about his taxes, he’d be Republican now and forever; if the words “Tea Party” suddenly disappeared down the memory hole, it would soon be revealed (on conservative blogs, nowhere else) that he was a card-carrying member of Communist Party USA.
So, yeah, kids… can you believe it? In Grandpa’s day, you had to attack each and every “news” story like a deranged, coked-out archaeologist, jackhammering through seventeen layers of bias to finally figure out some rough approximation of the truth. Because Our Betters in the media considered it their sacred duty to decide what us proles should and should not hear about events out in the world.
And that’s why your Granddad has been an alcoholic since 2008…..
