Blue Revoluton Meeting in Vancouver, Canada
It just keeps getting better. We had our meeting this evening and our final resolution is that next week we'll meet at the Vancouver city public library atrium. We can't get much more public than that.
What radical and revolutionary things do we do at these meetings, you ask? We sit in public places and speak openly about our opinions of Islam. We say such things as "Murder is a bad thing." We say that even if it's a good thing according to Islam it's a bad thing objectively, and we aren't going to remain silent. "Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them," is a nasty and disgusting thing for any work of fiction to include, and for a so-called religious text to demand that its adherents carry it out is more than bad, it's evil. We say that in public. In this country that brings us close to criminality. We say that's a bad thing too.
One of our members spoke this evening on the nature of homicide bombers. forget the cliches of the poor and oppressed striking out at injustice in any desperate way they can. Our speaker explained that they acqquire great benefit from murdering others, benefit to themselves in terms of legacy, of promised rewards, in financial rewards for their families, in prestige for their families. And far from being poor and oppressed, these evil monsters are generally afluent and "educated." These evil monsters gain personally, however twisted their internal and cultural logic might be to sane people. We say these things in public. these are not heroes, not martyrs, not freedom fighters, not noble men and women sacrificing themselves for the good of others; these are people twisted into monsters because their soicieties are psychotic, and in that psychosis they feel that they are gaining personally by committing murder. They are garbage. We say so in public.
We sat for hours and discussed more things about Islam and the state of our nations. We talked about these meetings held around the world that are becoming more popular as people realise we are not alone and not to be silenced any longer. Next week we take this to a new level of publicity. No hiding, no fear, no more silence.
I'll return tomorrow to fill in further details.
