John Oliver, Last Month: Boy, Those Fox Chuckleheads Sure Are Paranoid Ninnies to Think That Terrorists Might Smuggle Themselves Into Europe With the Rufugees!

HBO's Progressive Televangelist John Oliver delivered a 17 minute sermon to the faithful last month, telling all the true believers that their enemies were sinful and slothful and that the Kingdom of Heaven of the Strange Gods was at hand.

He mocked the idea that terrorists would, or could, infiltrate Europe with Syrian migrants, and invited his flock to laugh at the heathens who thought maybe they could.

Well, despite having a 48 hour lead time, John Oliver wasn't quite ready to address the Paris attacks in last night's show. So he just did a two minute segment in which he called the terrorists "f***ing assholes" and praised the French for their pastries.

He then said, "If you're picking a Lifestyle and Culture war with the French, good luck!"

This incredibly stupid hot wet Chinese Food Fart of reality-dodging sophistry is being praised among the Cult of the Left for its daring. Vox claims it's "exactly the right way" to deal with the terrorists; the Daily Beast moistens its panties to praise John Oliver for breaking out the Big Guns against Terror: routine profanity favored by idiot bloggers who are entirely impotent of power and so who shout Nasty Things at the great big world they can't actually touch in any meaningful way.

They don't seem to notice that IS did not mount a "Lifestyle and Culture war" against the French; rather, they have, in a series of attacks over the past year (remember Charlie Hebdo?), launched an actual war, a bullet and bomb war, against France.

Yes, John Oliver, the French culture is immensely superior to the joyless death-cult of the Islamists. Well-spotted, as they might say in England (and bien vu as they'd say in France0.

But unfortunately, a war is not won when two sides get together on the field of battle and show off to each other who produces the best pastries, the best fashion, the best Progressive Televangelist Rants which "DESTROY" the opponent, nor the best #HashtagMemes.

Wars are not won or lost the way gang wars are won or lost in 80s movies, that is to say, with a dance-off.

They are won with guns and with men capable of and willing to use those guns.

There is in fact a moderate, Western-influenced, relatively secular group of people in Iran. Yet they do not control the country. Why not? Because power is ultimately determined by what the people capable of using violence believe, and in Iran, the people who are good at using violence are Islamist thugs.

It's not that the left is so stupid as to be incapable of understanding reality; though that does, of course, play into it. The problem is that they are a Manichean religious cult which has certain extreme religious views, and anyone questioning those views will be deemed heretic and thrown out of the cult and ostracized.

So it's more a failure of moral and intellectual courage than of intellectual capacity. They could see the truth, and they could possibly speak the truth, but they are, as C.S. Lewis observed, Men Without Chests.

The faux intellectual class is in fact studiously anti-intellectual; they are simply the most degenerate sort of priestly class, the priests who do not actually read or study, but just pass what seems like wisdom from one stupid mouth to one imbecile ear.

It is not excess of thought but defect of fertile and generous emotion that marks them out. Their heads are no bigger than the ordinary: it is the atrophy of the chest beneath that makes them seem so.

They're not stupid, so much as they are cowards; and the ultimate retreat for the ultimate coward is the full flight from reality, the retreat to the #SafeSpace of fuzzy dreams of the way they wish the world were.

You can always tell when Reality is becoming too #Problematic for progressives: the number of blog posts on fucking tv shows skyrockets. The more Reality brutalizes them, the more they lock themselves inside the #SafeSpace of the Eternal Church of the Holy Tele-Vision.

Meanwhile, a French outlet had a recent "how silly" article about the possibility of terrorists infiltrating the continent with the refugees. That article has now been slightly revised. (By the way, I think I was the first English speaker to promote that to the English speaking blogosphere.)

On this, the left is resorting to its fantasy world again in crowing that the Syrian passport found by one suicide bomber is fake.

Okay, it's fake; but he still provably infiltrated Europe disguised as a Syrian refugee. The proof is incontovertible; he was fingerprinted coming into Greece with migrants, and then fingerprinted again in Serbia as he moved up through Europe.

So whether the passport was fake or not, it is still a terrorist infiltrating Europe in the guise of a refugee, just as reasonable people warned (and just as the Cult of the Left insisted was borderline impossible).

Asylum Skeptics said, "We can't tell terrorists from refugees." Now comes a terrorist passing himself off, successfully, as a refugee, and taking part in the slaughter of 132 human beings, and the left somehow... claims they are vindicated?!

But as I keep saying, a coward will flee a fight, but the ultimate in cowardice is a full-speed flight from reality. The ordinary coward flees the fight; the new breed of coward claims there was never a fight in the first place to flee, it was just a #FalseRacistNarrative.

And having appalled us all not just with their physical cowardice (which is understandable enough) but their ontological cowardice as well, these simpering assholes then have to pollute the world further with their six billionth treacly, truckling rendition of Imagine.


I got the world "truckling" from JeffB.

If you want a nice, happy song from an ex-Beatle, why not this one?

At least it hasn't become a hideous cliche.
