Charlie Hebdo: Let's call evil evil

Let's get a few things out of the way:

Twelve (12) people were murdered in cold blood in Paris. The people may, or may not, have been offensive assholes, but they sure as fuck did not deserve to be murdered.

I'm not going to defend Islam, and I'm not going to attack Christianity. I'm also not going to attack Islam, and I'm not going to defend Christianity.

You are going to drop your preconceived attitude assumptions about what you think I have to say, and pay attention, or fob off. I don't care.

This is not about religion. This is about politics. This is about power. This is about getting people to act like paranoid, stupid fucks, and people are buying right into the plans of the evil men.

Oh, lovely. Stupidity and arrogance beat the fuck out of common sense, and congratulations assholes, the bad guys have won, and you're too petty, narrow-minded stupid to even recognize you've handed them the victory by doing exactly what they wanted you to do.

The murder of twelve people at Charlie Hebdo wasn't about religion. It was about politics, psychological warfare, and evil.

Anyone who commits violence or hatred out of some misguided need to avenge the fallen has merely taken the bait, done exactly as the enemy intended, and leapt on the short road to evil.
