Alexandre Bissonnette only suspect

This changes everything. No longer a conspiracy, it’s just one lone wolf.

Also, it’s possible that reports of the gunman saying “Allahu akbar!” may have been wrong. This is something that Muslims say when they are afraid they might die and thus are about to meet Allah. So it may have been that one of the innocent people who feared for his or her life said it. I believe the same confusion happened in the reporting of the mass shooting in Munich, which I attributed to beta-male rage.

So right now, it looks like Alexandre Bissonnette may be a French-Canadian Dylann Roof. This is unfortunate because leftwing mainstream media journalists will now smugly lecture us that white Christians are the REAL terrorists.

  1. Or Bissonnette himself shouted Allahu Akbar. It’s not as if the phrase is unknown in the west now.

    The Canadians will find a way to blame this on the United States, as your comparison to dylann roof suggests. I know that you were not making that suggestion, but the Canadians will figure out a way to do it to create the connection.

    • Rightly or wrongly, the Quebec shooting is going to be linked with Trump’s executive order for as long as liberal historians write books.


      January 30, 2017 at 1:43 PM

    • It’s very easy to do. You just need to talk about a general atmosphere of Islamophobia, and then mention both the travel ban and the mosque shooting in the same breath. There is no direct connection between the two, but there doesn’t have to be one either for SJWs to rant about Islamophobia.

    • You are correct, the comments section of Canadian media sites are currently flooded with comments ascribing blame to the US and more specifically Trump. As a non-white Canadian myself, I’ve always found Canadians to be very accepting, civil and mature, but on the topic of the US or Americans generally all hell breaks loose. In my many years in this country as an impartial outsider, I’ve never figured this out, my best guess being that Americans touch a nerve in the Canadian psyche, reminding them of their deeply felt inferiority complex. Which is bewildering because as I already stated, Canadian culture is generally very grounded and mature.

      • In my many years in this country as an impartial outsider, I’ve never figured this out

        Very, very interesting to hear your point of view, in fact quite interesting to hear that you’ve observed this phenomenon period, because you’re absolutely right but it takes a certain sort of person to see it. I see it because I love the US and wish we were more like the US. You apparently see it because you’re something of an impartial observer.

        my best guess being that Americans touch a nerve in the Canadian psyche, reminding them of their deeply felt inferiority complex

        There are two very different sources of this attitude. The first, as you may not really appreciate, being an immigrant, is that you need to remember that Canada was settled heavily by Loyalists to the British crown, and while that may seem a quaint piece of history, the resentment from that era carries down in vestigial form even today.

        Secondly, quite differently, you are one hundred percent correct about the inferiority complex. Canadian behaviour towards the US is archetypical Gamma male behaviour towards an alpha. If you’re familiar with Vox Day’s description of the Gamma, you may recall his concept of the “secret king”, and how Gamma males all believe they are “secret kings”. This describes Canadians perfectly, who (and this may come as an amusing surprise to American readers) believe that Canada is the REAL “secret king” among nations; viz., that Canada is SECRETLY better than that darn USA with its guns and things and why oh why doesn’t anyone realize how great we are……

      • You guys must be talking about Anglophone Canada. The French Speaking province is literally quite provincial and tries very hard to filter out anything that is Anglophone.

        The only reason why I suggested to Lion to move up here, is simply because of the high percentage of Whites found in a cosmopolitan setting. Montréal is about 85% White, and Québec is 95% White.

        Enough of your fluff talk to rebuke my modus operandi — Anglophone Canada is a lesser America, which I have been saying all along. However, it major cities are a lot better than America’s lesser cities.

        I only talk about Québec, which is a completely different animal.

        So what’s the atmosphere up there? Shock? Guilt? Shrugs and whaddya whaddya? Do you know what whaddya whaddya means?


        That doesn’t bother me terribly. Up to a point I can understand it. Imagine you lived to the north of this gargantuan power, and you are constantly compared to it. The Australians call them ‘Snap-Frozen Yanks.’ I’d have a big case of me-tooism me too.

        Another reason it don’t bother me none* is cos when push comes to shove, the world always looks to Uncle Sam to save their asses. And sometimes we come thru.

  7. Weird. Everyone is still silent about this on Facebook. I expected my news feed to blow up about the atrocity of the shooting and people using a Canadian flag overlay on their profile pic to commemorate those who died. Is 6 dead considered a too small number to care about? Or maybe everyone is overly fixated and fuming about Trump’s various execute orders to care about 6 people shot to death in a mosque.


    January 30, 2017 at 2:37 PM

    • Wait a while. I’ve thought before that some Trump-related outrage would blow over because nobody on social media seemed to be picking up on it, and then like a delayed time bomb everything flies apart a day later for no discernable reason.

  9. Sad story.

    NB : not a franco-canadian i believe, but someone from the french speaking community in Canada or Quebec. There is no Bissonnette in France. This name is an english mispelling of Bissonnet wich sounds in french like bee- son- ay (the sounds you can fin in way and you don’t say the t). It’s a family name from Languedoc in the south of France near spain. Some of them went to Canada in the 17th century. And now, they are many Bissonnette in Canada, Quebec.

  10. Where did you see this? All I can find is that police say there is one suspect but they won’t say who.

    It could also still mean that Bissonnette, who looks like a wuss, was cajoled by the Muslim into taking action. I think there’s a long way to go yet on this.

    • True, but Islamic terrorists have a generalized beef with the world, and the others confine their rage to specific targets. Jewish terrorism was confined to liberating Palestine from the British. After that I don’t know of too much Jewish terrorism. Did you know that Jewish targets are still the most numerous of all hate crimes, mikeca?

      I don’t consider Dylan Roof/Bissonette types to be terrorists, although Trudeau will call this terrorism for political reasons.


      January 30, 2017 at 11:47 PM

      • Did you know that Jewish targets are still the most numerous of all hate crimes, mikeca?

        That’s probably inflated by counting every time someone draws a swastika on a bathroom stall. What are the statistics for violent hate crimes only?

        Of course, the criteria for what constitutes a “hate crime” are pretty much entirely political.

        February 1, 2017 at 10:53 AM

  12. We’ve had two real examples of “Trump’s luck” in the past, which is not really enough to claim a pattern.

    1) The first was the San Bernardino shooting, which came about 18 hours after Trump broke his often-repeated primary campaign pledge not to attack anyone who hadn’t attacked him, and very harshly (and hilariously) attacked Ben Carson for 10 minutes at an Iowa rally.

    Even though I loved it and thought it was hysterical, it was still a big mistake that made him look like a nasty bully and could well have ended his primary campaign.[1]

    Rush Limbaugh and most of the other talk radio guys were LIVID the next morning, as were their callers. The comments on Breitbart(!!!) were running about 4-1 anti-Trump, by my count.

    Then the terrorist attack, and Trump’s Muslim ban announcement, came and completely wiped the Carson story out of the mainstream and right-wing media news cycle, while giving Trump a huge boost and drawing attention to Carson’s being totally out of his depth on foreign policy.

    2) The more recent was the Pulse nightclub shooting. A few hours before, an Elliot Rodger-type beta stalker had murdered a pop starlet and another dude while she was signing autographs, and liberals were pushing it very hard as final proof for their Grand Unified Theory of Donald Trump and White Male Evil.

    However, Trump’s favorability ratings and poll standings actually fell in the days afterward, because people reacted negatively to his tweets where he appeared to gloat.[2]

    The Democrats also did some skilled jiu-jitsu by changing the subject to congressional (not Trump) Republicans’ extremist stance on allowing people on the No-Fly List to purchase firearms.[3]

    And any gains with the LGBT community were probably made impossible by the Pence selection (regardless of Pence’s other merits or demerits).[4]

    [1] Which was at its weakest; the attack was prompted by his falling to second place behind Carson in Iowa and nationally.

    [2] Liberals will of course be loudly gloating over this, but the double standard is real and does shape public opinion.

    [3] Even though Mateen wasn’t on the No-Fly List. This was also at the peak of #NeverTrump, and many/most GOP congresscritters saw pleasing the NRA and hurting Trump as a win/win.

    [4] I have several gay FB friends I can think of who started posting pro-Trump stuff after Orlando, then went back to being rabid Trump-haters after the Pence choice.

    Trump’s unprecedented-for-a-GOP-candidate press release and speech calling it a hate crime and explicitly condemning anti-LGBT discrimination was also undermined by the RNC releasing a competing statement that first stated the victims were targeted due to their “lifestyle choices” and then was amended to make no reference to the victims’ orientation.

    This was clearly intentional sabotage of Trump’s LGBT outreach attempt by a #NeverTrump cabal, b/c RNC employees are cosmopolitan SWPL DCers, including many gays, like Ken Mehlman, who are out to their coworkers.

    RNC communications people are a lot more likely to be lisping, well-dressed Rhodies like Sean Spicer[5] than prudish, Bible-thumping Hoosiers like Mike Pence.

    Anyway, guess which press release the liberal media reported on.

    [5] He’s married with kids, but I bet he has plenty of gay friends. He’s a convert to Episcopalianism who grew up Catholic, and his mother’s a long-time employee of Brown University.


    January 30, 2017 at 3:45 PM

    • It’s good that gays were given a chance to show what side they are really on when Trump picked Pence. Are they on the side of America or are they more interested in muh sexual freedom.

    January 30, 2017 at 4:26 PM

  14. Yep, looks like the shooter is a white conservative: “The man, Alexandre Bissonnette, had a history of provocative views and antisocial behavior, according to a report in the Quebec newspaper La Presse. The newspaper quoted François Deschamps, an official with a refugee advocacy organization, as saying that Mr. Bissonette had make harassing comments against members of an online chat room. The organization, Bienvenue aux Refugiés, said in a Facebook post that Mr. Bissonnette had made remarks critical of feminists and foreigners, and that he had expressed sympathies online with the National Front, the far-right political party in France.”

    Trudeau is an ass. Maybe you can figure out his IQ, Lion. He tried to take engineering but flunked out. He has a degree in education, i think. He was a substitute drama teacher for awhile, and a snow board instructor. That is the extent of his work history before getting involved in politics.

    If anything, we should strive to implement Canada’s immigration policy. Namely, deport all illegals immediately and accept only a very limited number of legal immigrants with a well-defined useful skillset, good English, full family, and only those who can prove they have >10K per person to offset integration costs, better yet just charge them that fee outright; oh and throw anybody who hires illegals in jail. You don’t need a wall with a policy like that.

    Nice blog, dude

  19. Trump has forced everybody to choose a side. Which side are the people choosing?

    Rasmussen’s survey of likely voters has Trump’s approval at 53%, down from 59% after the inauguration. PPD results match Rasmussen. Ras also shows that 57% of likely voters support the Muslim ban, although polling for that particular question comes from last week and may have changed over the weekend.

    Gallup’s poll of the general public, however, has Trump’s approval at 43%, down from 46% post inauguration. It is interesting that Trump has dropped 6 points in Ras but only 3 points in Gallup, which indicates to me that Rasmussen’s initial 59% was too high even at the time.

    But possibly less meaningful than the Trump approval in Gallup is the Trump disapproval. When Trump was at 46, his disapproval with 45 with 9% undecided. Now Trump’s disapproval is at 50% with 7% undecided. So it seems that some who initially were giving Trump the benefit of the doubt have decided “he is who we thought he was” and that they oppose him. Trump is basically where W was in May 2004.

    If Trump’s support is at this level or better next week, we are in pretty good shape. If his approval continues to decline, however, we could be in trouble.

  20. I’ve distinguished Islamic Jihad doctrine from Biblical justifications from violence:

    As usual, this argument made by the Left is false. When Biblical endorsements of violence are put in their right context and then compared to the doctrine of Jihad, Islam stands out as uniquely incompatible with Western civilization.

    Because the New Testament borders on pacifist, the crux of this debate centers over how the Old Testament compares against the Koran. The Old Testament records numerous stories where the Israelites came into fierce conflict with their neighbors and how God favored the House of Israel provided they were sufficiently devoted to God.

    The essential difference between these justifications of Israelite violence and Muslim jihad is that Israelite defensive obligations are limited to only defending the land of Israel as promised by the Abrahamic Covenant.

    Unlike Islam there is no Old Testament obligation to forcibly conquer all of mankind under Judaism. Provided they are not at war with Israel or a threat in Israel’s immediate vicinity, Jews are nowhere commanded to subjugate or forcibly convert Scythians, Ethiopians, Greeks, Numidians, Chinese, Persians, Romans, Carthaginians, Gauls, Indians, or any other peoples contemporary with Ancient Israel.

    Islam however is commanded to militarily conquer the globe. Though they do not always follow this tenet of faith, they do strike at their non-Islamic neighbors whenever they feel they have the upper hand or are consumed with enough religious fanaticism that are willing to engage a superior opponent. This command is not only distinguishes it from Judaism and Christianity but it also distinguishes Islam from any other known major religion.
