I warned people, time and again, about things like ALF, IFAW and the RSPCA. These were the breeding-grounds for the next big fashionable murder-scheme: climate terrorists. Much the same people frequent both camps.
One never, also, really fully bought into the “Islamist” scare. Apart from 9/11 and a few other obvious big set-pieces, the foot-soldiers of that movement are not serious at all. Some of their priests, “scholars” and imams – yes: they’ll get a lot out of a Universial World Caliphate, including all the virgins while they yet live too (when virgins are of most use to a man.) But the footsloggers and suicide bombers: no, to the drivers of this, they are just expendable scum.
Islam will soon learn that it’s been set up as a patsy. It’s not a religion – and that’s a different discussion we will have with it when a more relaxed time comes, and it has grown up a bit. Having read the Koran and commentaries, I can see that it’s a fairly nifty way of husbanding chattels, animals and women, in pre-Enlightenment Lands of harsh climate where there is nothing. But as I said, we’ll have that discussion another time.
For the present though, the Bramwello-Ehrlichite GreeNazi movement is much more dangerous and immediately harmful: all of those in it all seem to believe with messianic fervour what they are saying. They really are prepared to murder, starve and freeze millions to death, down to the meanest polytechnic student among them: there must be some attraction towards violence associated with the promotion of opinions, among this class of person. In time, I prophesy that they will learn from their mates in ALF how to go about “targetting” private named individuals too.
Liberal rhetoric does not, somehow, carry within it the same degree of utterly certain conviction of rectitude that the GreeNazis’ sort does. Even Islamists of the militant kind appear to be quaking nervous bags of jello by contrast.
These are the dangerous ones of the next generation, following in a grand and highly-studiable tradition of anti-liberal protest followed by “action”. Just watch.
