Everyone is rightfully outraged by the disgusting terrorist attacks that occurred on Friday, November 13 in Paris, France. However, there is perhaps no more colorful and appropriate blasting of these disgusting events than that delivered by BBC reporter Andrew Neil.
Neil took to his anchor desk and spouted off on ” bunch of loser jihadists who slaughtered 132 innocents in Paris to prove the future belongs to them,” as his first topic. He first rattled off many wonderful people from France who have enriched lives the world over, including Camus, Renoir, Curie, Hugo, Cézanne, Pasteur, Chanel, as well as the band Daft Punk. After those descriptions, he said, “versus what?” Then, he told us what, describing the barbaric past and present of extremist religion:
“Beheadings, crucifixions, amputations, slavery, mass murder, medieval squalor, a death cult barbarity that would shame the Middle Ages.”
He’s right, of course. No matter what anyone says, organized religion, particularly of the Abrahamic variety, has not done humanity any favors, and history shows us this. It continues to be a problem, but, somehow, amazingly, we’re still supposed to respect it and not criticize people’s “sincerely held religious beliefs,” no matter how bizarre, or even harmful or dangerous. This is what is wrong with the whole narrative surrounding the cancer on humanity that is much of organized religion.
Neil goes on to mockingly call the Islamic State terrorists “IS — as in Islamist scumbags, ”and then goes on to rant:
“In a thousand year’s time, Paris, that glorious city of lights, will still be shining bright as will every other city like it. And you will be dust, along with the ragbag of fascists, Nazis and Stalinists that previously dared to challenge democracy and failed.”
This is just beyond perfect. Listen to this rant that the whole world needs to hear below, via BBC on YouTube:
