Wow, Parisians showing extraordinary courage, strength and compassion.— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) November 14, 2015
Just hearing the news from Paris. Thoughts are with friends in that part of the world...— Cully Hamner (@CullyHamner) November 13, 2015
Thoughts and love with France. Horrifying.— Scott Snyder (@Ssnyder1835) November 14, 2015
Okay, that's respectable enough. But, if they still hold fast to ultra-leftist standings on Islam and immigration, then these can't be taken at face value.
Now, for some of the usual disappointments. For example, if we determine a writer's persona by what he retweets, then here's a screenshot to check:
I’m sure the Syrian refugees already living in Texas are going to have a wonderful time, full of acceptance, in the coming weeks.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) November 17, 2015
Donald Trump thinks we should buy land in Syria for refugees to live on. Because no one would mess with them there. That’d be trespassing.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) November 17, 2015
Sarcasm or not, I am not amused by his petty swipes at Trump, no matter how weak I already find some of Trump's approach as it is. More hugely disappointing efforts to divert attention from pressing issues and worry about accepting in "refugees" whom I doubt they'd ever let into their own houses despite their stances.
Wrecked by the news coming out of Paris. Infuriated by the stupidity of some people tweeting about it.— Greg Rucka (@ruckawriter) November 13, 2015
He should take a good look at himself, because he later retweeted some more apologia for Islam, like this same nonsense Busiek did about IS wanting to create "Islamophobia". And again, without ever bothering to acknowledge the exact verses inside the Koran.
My heart goes out to the people of Paris and our friends at @UrbanComics who lost one of their own. Such pointless evil.— Andy Diggle (@andydiggle) November 14, 2015
Unfortunately, Diggle's also retweeted apologia like this junk and this too:
#ISIS wants you to hate Muslims as a whole. It makes recruitment easier, and brings their goals closer. Be smarter than that.— Ron Marz (@ronmarz) November 14, 2015
That said, I hope the maniacs of #ISIS are wiped from the face of the Earth.— Ron Marz (@ronmarz) November 14, 2015
The best way to be smarter is to research the Koran/Hadith. Then he'll realize what Islamic State is motivated by. Otherwise, Marz's statement becomes meaningless.
I might buy GOP pols’ ravings about Muslim refugees were sincerely based on security if they hadn’t wallowed in immigrant bashing all year— Gerry Conway (@gerryconway) November 17, 2015
The GOP’s ugly and reflexive anti-immigrant posture makes their current Security Theatrics about Muslim refugees suspect on every level— Gerry Conway (@gerryconway) November 17, 2015
I wonder if that's what Conway thinks of any French politician/citizen now opposed to letting in the invaders?
Really interesting. "Why Syrian refugee passport found at Paris attack scene must be treated with caution" https://t.co/3zcU0XkDPh— Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) November 15, 2015
So he's using the UK Guardian as a channel for his ultra-leftist belief that ISIS is not exploiting the refugee crisis in Europe for their venomous goals? What a disgrace. Somebody else said:
@neilhimself first rule of being a liberal. Never let evidence get in the way of your ideology https://t.co/wz1GTiDki9— Caleb (@NCpreneur) November 15, 2015
And that, alas, is just the problem with the otherwise pathetic, potentially overrated Gaiman.
ALL religions need to be aware that they sell people 'certainty' of what happens when we die, even tho they can not possibly have it. 1/2— Tim Seeley (@HackinTimSeeley) November 14, 2015
Pretending to KNOW can give their most hateful & ignorant faithful too little fear of death & too little responsibility to the living. 2/2— Tim Seeley (@HackinTimSeeley) November 14, 2015
Amazing article on ISIS in the Atlantic. Recommended read. And, Yes, it is about religion: https://t.co/8dUZXbljhJ— Tim Seeley (@HackinTimSeeley) November 14, 2015
I get the feeling Seeley's drawing a moral equivalence between ALL religions, and won't make distinctions between good and bad. It brings to mind this report on how leftists blame all religion, and cannot tell the difference between one ideology or another. That's not the way to solve anything.
Here's also one more by a freelance editor named Will Dennis:
dear politicians, maybe cool it with all the “prayers” ….fucking prayers is what got us into this fucking mess in the first place.— Will Dennis (@ThrillioD) November 13, 2015
So he too thinks there's no difference between good and bad religions? I'm afraid that's pretty sloppy too.
