Currency Lad: Werle Gone Mad

When events take a dark turn, when the complexities of tragedy perplex our senses and trouble our spirits, what do we do?
My friends, we could look to the calm, rational and impartial “journalist and author” CJ Werleman in the Sydney Morning Herald. Here is a respectfully fair use abridgement of his analysis of the latest mass shootings in the United States:

Trump … Trump … Trump … Trump … Trump … Trump … Trump’s … Trump …

You get the gist.

A talented man is Werleman. For example, how does one make the largest political assassination attempt in US history – the June 2017 Congressional Baseball Shooting (a garden variety Democrat targeted dozens of Republican lawmakers, almost killing one) – vanish from the record? Too easy, Campo:

It is no coincidence that far-right extremists were responsible for 100 per cent of all terrorist attacks on US soil since the end of 2017.

I hadn’t heard of Werleman before but it turns out he’s a career apologist for Muslims and a fanatical critic of “Israel’s international law and human rights violations,” “Israeli apartheid and occupation,” “Israeli settlers” and “Israel’s war crimes.” Additionally, he is contemptuous of Christianity, having authored a crackpot book entitled Jesus Lied: He Was Only Human. The tome is presently ranked #2,805,625 on Amazon. All of this gets you a column denouncing racism and bigotry in the Sydney Morning Herald.

    The ohio goon was an anti trump nutter, so will have to change the meme to “since September 2019”

  2. It’s always Trump’s fault. Note how the Age writes a headline (note the not so subliminal message):

    Fear and panic trump fundamentals with markets in free fall

    As Gran used to say ,”they would blame him if the cat had kittens”
    Our communist msm has lost their fall guy Abbott,what will they do about that?
    Extradite soros for plotting to overthrow our government by financing the getup fascists ?
    The u.n, globalist fascists wouldnt allow us to do that ,mhe bought and paid for them ,like 200 odd EU parliament members .

    Interesting take on things, particularly since the Ohio shooter was an Elizabeth Warren follower and also climate catastrophist and pro-gun control (which like all Leftists probably didn’t apply to him).

    Oh, and he despised Trump.

    The promised surge in Hate Crime from Brexit and Trump must be seen to happen.

    Media is in a rage because politicians don’t all bend to their demands anymore.

    Worst of all, the public don’t vote the way they’re told to.

    It’s a crisis in democracy!

    I read this today on Jim Balls blog. Makes perfect sense to me.
    ““…In a nation afflicted by fads, crazes, manias, and rages, mass murder is the jackpot for nihilists – begging the question: why does this country produce so many of them? Answer: this is exactly what you get in a culture where anything goes and nothing matters. Extract all the meaning and purpose from being here on earth, and erase as many boundaries as you can from custom and behaviour, and watch what happens, especially among young men trained on video slaughter games.

    For many, there is no armature left to hang a life on, no communities, no fathers, no mentors, no initiations into personal responsibility, no daily organising principles, no instruction in useful trades, no productive activities, no opportunities for love and affection, and no way out. This abyss of missing social relations is made worse by the everyday physical settings for everyday lives based on nothing: the wilderness of parking lots that America has turned itself into.

    The old truism sticks: when nothing is sacred, everything is profane, and what could be more profane than slaughtering your fellow humans en masse, for no good reason?

    We await a restructuring of American life into real communities of people working together at things that matter, and it will require the demise of the things that have worked so hard to destroy all that, namely, the tyranny of the giants, the town-killing Walmarts, the suffocating monster of government, the media manipulators of reality, the too-big-to-fail banks. The people alone won’t loosen the grip of these monsters and, honestly, they lack the will to even imagine life without all that….”

    Brendan O’Neill on Spiked has described the El Paso massacre as “a vile act of eco-terrorism” saying that besides the racial slurs the alleged killer’s manifesto is replete with attacks on modern society for being eco-unfriendly, Westerners’ lifestyles are ‘destroying the environment’ and ‘creating a massive burden for future generations’, we are ‘shamelessly over-harvesting resources’, he attacks ‘urban sprawl’ that ‘destroys millions of acres of land’, ‘consumer culture’ with its production of ‘thousands of tonnes of unnecessary plastic waste and electronic waste’ etc. etc.
    In his reading of the alleged killer’s manifesto CJ Werleman apparently missed all those green ideological justifications, otherwise he would have had to to blame a Latino woman: Ocasio-Cortez — yes?

    Sexist! He must immediately change his name to Werlebeing.

    It is no coincidence that far-right extremists were responsible for 100 per cent of all terrorist attacks on US soil since the end of 2017

    The Antifa goon attacking the ICE facility on 13th July 2019 was somehow not a terrorist attack?

  12. W Hogg

    It is no coincidence that far-right extremists were responsible for 100 per cent of all terrorist attacks on US soil since the end of 2017.

    Presumably Warren voters killing a dozen people to advance socialism and protest border security are classed as workplace violence or OHS violations?

    The El Paso Shooter (2019) and John Brown (1859)
    Gary North – August 06, 2019

    The Left is appalled by the El Paso shooter. The Left ignores what ought to be obvious: the strategy of the El Paso shooter was also the strategy of John Brown, hero and patron saint of the Left in the United States

    He shifts blame for mass murder to third parties. He is clearly self-conscious about the immorality of what he was planning to do. “Blame them, not me!” He has adopted the liberals’ version of guilt: social, not personal.

    If you want the origin of this thinking, go back to John Brown. He began in 1856 by murdering family members in their home at Pottawatomie Creek, Kansas. Then, when he and his sons got away with this mass murder, he escalated the violence. In 1859, he and his sons attacked the U.S. government’s arsenal at Harpers Ferry, killing one innocent black man, as a way to mobilize slaves to revolt. He believed in armed revolt as a way to regenerate America. His program involved weapons, political rhetoric, and a grand symbolic suicidal act.

    So does the El Paso shooter’s program.

    This man is an environmentalist. He blames capitalism for the destruction of the environment. This has been the liberal party line for two generations.
    Then he gets to the next stage of the John Brown agenda: weapons as the means of social redemption.

    This man picked up the slogans of the Left. He is an environmentalist. He blames corporations for destroying the environment.
    He sees redemption in terms of violence.
    There are not many people this deranged by a witch’s brew combination of liberalism, racism, and messianic terrorism. But there are some. They are the price of living in a free society.

    It’s an interesting thesis, Max.
    It’s highly likely these mass shooters are now straight-out leftists gifting their surviving comrades a propaganda boost and casus belli in their bloody estate.
