Big Red Car here in the glorious ATX while The Boss is in NYC living large and upon the fat of the land.
Will be a lovely 75F and sunny. Hope you freeze in the Apple, Boss. Haha, just kidding.
Me and the housesitter will be cruising this evening. Finally, a warm and sunny day for the housesitter and girlfriend.
So, The Boss has been thinking about those bloody bastards, ISIS.
ISIS and Islam — Penetration
OK, while I don’t think the world is really at war with Islam writ large, they could do a bit more to make the point they don’t approve of ISIS. Just asking?
Hell, go out on a limb and call them “radical Islam” or “Islamic terrorism.” Why not? Go for it, y’all.
There are 1,600,000,000 Muslims in the world. Just like Episcopalians, there are varying degrees of devotion. Like Christmas church service Episcopalians?
Of that number, approximately half are men — down to 800,000,000 and of that number about 25% fit into the ISIS target demographic. Target market about 200,000,000, no?
ISIS, arguably, has about 40,000 active members in the Middle East (about 20,000 dead and buried, also) which means that ISIS represents directly about 0.02% of the target demographic (40,000/(1,600,000,000 x 0.5 x 0.25) = 0.0002 = 0.02%).
That is not much penetration of the target market.
The Essential Nature of ISIS
ISIS is the darkness. Has anyone ever inquired, “What is the speed of darkness?”
No, because darkness does not move. It envelops until the light banishes it and destroys it.
They are the losers. The guys who never got laid in college. The guys who never got chosen to be on a sports team. The guys who were awkward.
One of the Paris murderers was an unemployed, pot head whose former wife said he had no ambition and they lived off unemployment. This is not the freakin’ A team. Losers.
You have to be some kind of a freakin’ loser to let some old guy talk you into blowing yourself up on the specious promise of 72 virgins. So great a deal? Why didn’t the old guy get a ticket to that dance?
Cause, he’s smarter than you, idiot boy.
Because of this, they love the power conveyed upon them by weapons and the infliction of pain on the innocent. It is really transference of their own pathetic existences.
They gorge on blood. The Middle East is not a place for the faint of heart but the ISIS beheadings, immolations, crucifixions, drownings, defenestrations, live burials, and rapes set a new standard. They must constantly pursue more and greater atrocities as they are unable to sell any ideas.
The idea of ISIS is bankrupt.
Life is not T Ball and the ISIS bunch are so socially inept as to fail even at T Ball. And, so in their misery, they strike out and they act out and they try to punish the light. Because in the light, they are less than nothing.
Caliph and Caliphates
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS and the self-proclaimed Caliph of ISIS is the pretender to the throne of previous caliphates. He is a poseur and a fakir afraid to enter the light as he will be killed. He knows that but still he poses as a powerful military, religious, and governmental leader.
The leader of all of Islam with 1,600,000,000 followers of whom only 0.02% have rallied to his cause because the rest of Islam sees him for what he is — a short trip to the graveyard.
Don’t get me wrong, there is a bit of the anti-Crusader sentiment at work in the Muslim world but they are not voting with their feet or the lives of their children because, like the mastermind of the Paris attack, they see their children’s lives ending in a hail of gunfire, a grenade or two, and the necessity to test the DNA as there is not enough left to identify them otherwise.
Abu Bakr is a punk. He is a poseur, a fakir — a man whose pathetic manhood is only as hard as the edge of a knife wielded by others equally misfit to embrace the light. He, his ideas, his Caliphate are impotent. They are not men, they are animals. They are mangy dogs.
What is even worse is that the previous Caliphates were forces for light — the advancement of mathematics, science, art, music, literature, and culture. They were forces for good and light.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi could not hold their jocks.
This Caliph wants to propel his tribe of losers back a millennium and a half. He is a backward, pathetic man who marshals his forces to spread darkness and to move backward knowing they and he are irrelevant to these times.
Into the light
When ISIS attacked the joy, the happiness, the energy of Paris — they revealed themselves as the purveyors of darkness they are. In the joy of a concert, they brought death. Into the gaiety of a restaurant, they brought themselves — darkness.
It was and is their jealousy of freedom, joy, happiness — life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness — that they oppose but, more importantly, fear. For in that light, their darkness cannot move. It is squashed and destroyed.
ISIS envies the joy of life. It is all envy of the light, of good.
What is the speed of darkness?
Darkness does not move. It is stagnant and rots until the stench reaches the entire world.
Still, the world must do something and the answer is simple — IT IS TIME TO REMOVE THE STENCH OF ISIS FROM THE FACE OF THE WORLD AND TO CONFRONT THE POSEUR AND IMPOTENT CALIPH AND TO DISMANTLE THIS DARKNESS.
It is time to act.
