Apologists quickly make excuses for Canada’s latest Muslim terrorist — as usual

Brian LilleyArchive

I was still in the RCMP’s press conference about the police-involved death of would-be suicide bomber Aaron Driver, when I got a tweet from a woman pointing out (falsely) that this home-grown jihadi “wasn’t a Muslim.”

We’ve seen this again and again:

People — Muslim and non-Muslim — eager to blame the latest terror attack on mental illness, and insist that it had “nothing to do with Islam.”

But what did the RCMP say about this very issue at the press conference…?

Is it true our government is looking at a de-radicalization center of some sort?
It had better not.
Most recently (especially since the 5 ton truck nut) we hear these ISIS supporters suffered from mental illness. And how these lone wolves became so easily radicalized.
That is such a phony excuse. A deflection from the real root of the problem; which is the indoctrination of Islam.
There is one sure way to de-radicalize these ISIS freaks. Our politicians do not have the balls to do it. Seems like the police know how to get it done unless the suicide bomber pulls the trigger first.

Jay Kelly; If the Muslim religion did not radicalize him, what did? Also give me just one example of where a Christian in the 21st century went on a killing rampage in the name of God shouting “God is Great” ? Just one.

So he wasn’t a Muslim but he went to Muslim mosques and vowed allegiance to ISIS. Is that not a Muslim? Even if he wasn’t a Muslim he was following the cave man doctrine. The women that tweeted Brian made a case in point; Its not the person, its the death cult of Islam that’s the fundamental problem here.
Make Islam illegal in Canada until the religion gets reformed and moved from the cave man era up to the 21st century.

@liza Rosie….not only was his Arabic pretty good but he had also developed a disturbing trait….he was speaking English with an Arabic inflection as if English was his second language. This has been noted by people who have left the Salophist cult ….it indicates the dissolution of self identity and taking on the group identity….it is a danger sign of radicalism.

There has never before in history been a mental illness in which one of the symptoms presented by all of the patients was killing on behalf of Caliph Bigdaddy.

Kelly says, “Canadian society has some soul-searching to do.” I’d say the Muslim community has the soul searching to do Jay Kelly. I’m still waiting to hear if the local Mosque had any hand in radicalizing this kid. His Arabic was pretty darn good and he may have been directed by the internet to local feet on the ground sources to polish up and finish off his radicalization. The Muslim community is complicit through it’s silence.
You’re an insult Jay Kelly, an insult to Canada. I don’t respect your opinions at all because you say what ever is necessary, using taqiyya and apologizing for Islamists.

Lawrence O’Byrne, you should have despised me more than Sean Penson because I spoke about your singular ignorance.

Normally on a site like this people chat and criticize and even attack one another for different views.

I hope and expect that you are aware that your opinions are respected. You have some opinions, some views, that are not mainstream but still need to be heard.

If there is something you wish to say on this site, please say it.

Lawrence O’byrne is not a progressive, but his comments are ignorant.

He says: “i bet you can’t even wipe your own behind with out some one giving you instructions .eff off F face.”

Rather he not comment on this site.

The vitriol and demonizing is getting heavier and heavier from the progressives now that the truth is right where they cannot look away, not they are desperately shooting the messenger and blaming the victim like good cowards.

The useful idiots and their denial, i can hardly wait until they are about to be dealt with and others can say , sorry you do not need help, that is not really happening.

Mental illness is a terrible, horrible disease
commented 2016-08-11 23:02:11 -0400
If not mental illness, then what?

A young Christian man from Saskatchewan feels content to convert to Islam and then feels drawn to convert to a more radical Islam. Finally he goes off on his own path and seeks to punish the West for crimes against Islam.

Yes, we know his mother died when he was 7, and yes, we know his father is a member of the Armed Forces.

But what was it that set him on a path of destruction, even to promote killing innocent people?

Canadian society has some soul-searching to do.

Not this shit again. I think it’s too late for us as a society. Heads could be rolling and they will insist ideology has no bearing.
commented 2016-08-11 22:13:04 -0400
I have to admit I am beginning to worry – it seems “nice boys” are suffering from mental illness at an alarming rate across the entire globe!
commented 2016-08-11 22:06:23 -0400
You know , if I was a radical Islamist I’d be very pissed off at the MSMERS and the liberal vacationing government , as they are not taking us seriously, calling us lone dogs that are mentally ill , I just might targeting them

I have never seen the word ‘TERRORIST’ used SO MUCH in both the print & tv media in the last 2 days then ever before.

The CBC has a policy NOT to use that word, even they are using it, usually they use the word ‘EXTREMIST’.

I suspect this is because the Perp is WHITE, born in Canada, probably had a Christian background before being Radicalized through the internet.

After all, a WHITE guy is the worst kind of TERRORIST for the MSM.

If this was a Migrant(refugee), an immigrant from the Middle East, etc, they wouldn’t be using the word ‘TERRORIST’…GUARANTEED!!!

The mental illness thing DOES NOT EXCUSE!!!!! Many many many “troubled” people answered the alter calls of Billy Graham…..when they came to the alter they were not assigned random acts of murder and mayhem against kuffars…they were not assigned retaliatory revenge as God’s errand.

Many many many “troubled” people find themselves at dharma centers getting meditation instruction…..some “take refuge” in buddhism….they are not assigned revenge attacks…they are taught that revenge and cherishing a grudge is the poisoned thorn that was “troubling” them in the first place and to use the teachings to pluck out that thorn….

Of course religious converts are “troubled people”….religion holds little or no appeal to anyone who isn’t “troubled”

But Islam is unique in that it recruits these troubled people to commit murder in the name of God. Anyone else who recruited “mental patients” who could not be held responsible for their deeds … do evil deeds …….would be the subject of the law’s wrath.

Once again I say that NO Canadian has ever droped a bomb on a muslim for the reason that they were muslim….it was over political conflict ……..we were protecting other muslims from being slaughtered because some “holier than thou” muslims consider them sell outs.

I am very glad that this fellow made it clear that backing out of the ISIS mission does not give Canada a pass from ISIS terrorism…….Mr Wahabi Al Wannabi bin Mick Jagger…..put your shirt on and get real….winning an election on the back of a high horse is easy….get down off of that high horse and get to work…..vacation is over school teacher.

Yes these are cut and pasted from previous threads…..because the left has not given response….just cut and pasted dismissal.

Well…he kept punctuating his manifesto with “inshaallah” (if it be God’s will)….but he and many like him got stopped in their tracks before they made many tracks….indicating to me that God did not approve of his intentions and his intentions were not God’s will….“I SHALL NOT HOLD HIM BLAMELESS WHO TAKETH MY NAME IN VAIN”……making our wannabe jihadhi…… a blasphemer….no martrydom card….no 72 virgins…..a trip to Hell pretty much assured.

Since he was at one point an arrested detainee of the state…it would appear that the state has no real expertise in dealing with young men like him…..I would go further….I have some very “controversial” ideas as to why young men like him go so far astray…..I would risk much if I honestly stated them…but until “the politically correct” become willing to discuss this honestly….there will be more of this….no doubt Stephan Molineaux could give a scathing insight into the upbringing that produced this result….the leftist/feminist crowd would seeth hearing it.

Anybody who defends Terrorism, are nothing but craven cowards.
commented 2016-08-11 20:00:55 -0400
I read some of this nutter’s Jihadi gibbering – this radicalizing stuff only appeals to a sociopathic personality – He admits himself he came to Islam because it’s Law, culture and religion all wrapped in one package – they tell you how to live, how to dress, what to eat, what to think , and most importantly for the budding sociopath, who to hate – everything the hollow soul and empty intellect could want – prefab moral supremacy without the trouble of experience, empathy, truth, reason or logic – OBEY the dictates of its cult leaders and see “God?”

This story from London Free Press, talks about meeting this guy in 2012 in London mosquue. Wasn’t that around the time we sent 3 terrorists to Syria, also from this mosque?
My mind is a bit foggy, but I think police interviewed 4-5 young guys about that time. Could this guy have been radicalized with the other 3 in 2012?
There is a lot more to come on this story!

Mr. Lilley’s comment about how radicalization has to occur through a physical contact first and not through the inter-net. Note that Driver was banned from the internet until the end of this month. Then watch the video and note the direction of his eye flow, always to his left and never to the right, when he is not looking at the camera. I think there was maybe some prompting? It seemed too articulate for a mental case.

Laura Dravland is an absolute disgrace. Clearly she is too stupid to have a twitter account. Why these leftist nut jubs refuse to see the truth around Islam is mind boggling. It seems they would rather have their children die in a horrid terrorist attack than admit the truth. The truth is that the welcoming of Islam is not a good way to diversify.
