Dickhead Believes Bullshit Justifies Bullshit!

http://www.businessinsider.com.au/isis-calls-for-australian-killings-the-chilling-statement-that-one-expert-says-is-a-game-changer-2014-9

To those who dismiss these threats as statistically insignificant I say, please nominate the children you are you okay being put at the mercy of these lunatics. Your own? Thought not.

  • David Shapcott So how many Syrian children, Iraqi children etc being blown up by 2009 Nobel peace prize winner do you condone. How much freedom are you prepared to sacrifice for a distraction by a lunatic government, I refuse to give into the fear as do my children aSee More
  • Linda Shapcott We are all at risk of allowing lunatics to harm our children at all times. You just can’t throw cotton wool over people. Besides, all those people involved in the actual wars, not just the rhetoric, are somebody’s children too, right?
  • Lance Stewart You seem to be conflating David. I didn’t mention the RAAF deployment or whether we should be there at all. I am taking umbrage at threats of murdering our people.

  • Linda Shapcott I mean, even Abbot the rabbit was quoted on the news the other day saying that there was no way to stop a random act of violence. Not all the intelligence in the world can do it. Removing the actual benefits of living this Western life, like being able to put your empty coke bottle in a rubbish bin at Central station, seems petty and self-defeating.
  • Lance Stewart And David, Isis is a group of people. 9/11 was a group of 19 individuals. Nazi atrocities were done by a group of Nazis. And so on.
  • David Shapcott If you can explain why a white farmer who has previously made bombs and threatened to kill people is NOT a terrorist threat and a small number of people of a different colour have threatened to make threats is a terror attack. http://www.naroomanewsonline.com.au/…/family-home…/

  • Lance Stewart Umm. I didn’t say we should give in to it. I don’t think we should. But I am voicing concern that a spokesman for a group comprising 20,000 plus members has declared a fatwa against Aussies. I have a problem with that.

  • Lance Stewart Conflating again David.
  • Linda Shapcott Do you see that if we involve ourselves further in action to do with Isis then that is what is causing them to call for this bullshit action? And that continuing to involve ourselves in anything other than a purely humanitarian action perpetuates this hate?
  • David Shapcott It is only a Fatwa if the person issuing it is respected as a scholar, the more it is publicised and taken seriously the more people are discriminated against the worse we make it.
  • David Shapcott As for conflating if you don’t see a direct correlation then perhaps you need to read more widely and become more cynical.
  • Lance Stewart Chronologically speaking, I am not aware of any action by Australia against I.S. that predates their call to murder us.
  • Linda Shapcott Where did the IS come from, Lance?
  • David Shapcott I think a couple of hundred thousand refugees with un counted dead relatives and injured children might remember the coalition of the willing
  • David Shapcott or is linking IS with a middle east Oil war conflating
  • David Shapcott email me pic of the WMD’s went to war to stop as I can’t seem to find any
  • Lance Stewart Their members come from LUCA like the rest of us Linda. I know this because I read a lot David. As to their motivations I will leave that to the shrinks. I don’t care what motivates them just as I don’t care what motivated the Nazis. I do know that denigrating women, beheading people you don’t like, blocking education to women, and demanding that people blindly follow your chosen faith are all despicable. Evil. Strangely I have zero tolerance towards such people. Can’t imagine why
  • Luke Mason All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing

  • Linda Shapcott More than a few of those traits exist among US states too, maybe not so many beheadings but more than enough woman hating to make it not insignificant. Fundamentalists suck, there’s so denying that. But tell me, what argument have you ever brought forth, including punching someone in the face, that has ever made someone change their mind? This shit is happening, it exists and sucks, but opening up another front over there affects what is happening over here. And even the most senior of Australian politicians and politician’s representatives are saying that it’s a small minority of people, 150 or so, who are under scrutiny. So what’s the point in scaring people with your initial statement about children being put at the mercy of these lunatics and the implication that if you don’t think that this ‘terror alert’ is a pile of overblown bullshit then you’re complicit in the possible death of your children?

In this African tribe, when someone does something harmful, they take the person to the center of the village where the whole tribe comes and surrounds them.  For two days, they will say to the man all the good things that he has done. The tribe believes that each human being comes into the world as a good. Each one of us only desiring safety, love, peace and happiness.  But sometimes, in the pursuit of these things, people make mistakes. The community sees those mistakes as a cry for help. They unite then to lift him, to reconnect him with his true nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth of which he had been temporarily disconnected: “I am good.” Shikoba Nabajyotisaikia! NABAJYOTISAIKIA, is a compliment used in South Africa and means: “I respect you, I cherish you. You matter to me.” In response, people say SHIKOBA, which is: “So, I exist for you.”

:’))))))

WHY ISN’T THIS A THING IN ALL CULTURES

some day I’m going to create a bingo card for these kinds of posts.
vague mention of “Africa” and “African tribe” with no actual names of tribes, countries, or languages, because Africa is a country and everyone there is exactly the same obv: check.
picture of smiling/emotional black people taken completely out of context: check.
made-up “African” words with deep meanings: check.
"noble savage" grossness out the wazoo: check.
this photo is a picture of Ghanaian boys playing soccer from Amen: Grassroots Football.
Initial googling says that Shikoba means “feather” in Choctaw, which would mean OP isn’t even on the right damn continent.
(When I look at Choctaw-English dictionaries, though, shikoba doesn’t show up at all; the word for feather seems to be “híshi.” “Shikobli” is a verb meaning “to put on a plume” so maybe there’s some conjugation or gerund going on here? I’d welcome any corrections from actual Choctaw speakers.)
Nabajyoti Saikia is someone’s name. OP just straight-up stole some poor Indian cement chemist’s name for their colonialist hippie bullshit.
Look at this dude. He didn’t spend years of his life writing a goddamn textbook on waste management strategies so that you could use his name to prop up this crock of shit. He’s disappointed in you. Do better.
