Annotated captions of Violence is not the answer in English

The Norwegian murderer has shown himself to be as much an enemy

patcondell 00:03
00:08

of humanity as any jihadist. Indeed, he is a jihadist by any other name.

patcondell 00:08
00:11

He claims there's a war going on, and there certainly is -

patcondell 00:11
00:15

a war between civilised people and violent barbarians like him.

patcondell 00:15
00:19

It sickens me to think that this kind of thing can still happen

patcondell 00:19
00:22

when it must be obvious to even the most stupid among us

patcondell 00:22
00:25

that violence will never prevail because it will never win

patcondell 00:25
00:27

the hearts and minds of the people,

patcondell 00:27
00:29

the ones who are always left to pick up the pieces.

patcondell 00:29
00:31

How obvious does that have to be?

patcondell 00:31
00:35

You'd have to be a moron not to see it, or a fanatic.

patcondell 00:35
00:38

And, given the parlous state of democracy in Europe today,

patcondell 00:38
00:41

it's clear that any fundamental change in society

patcondell 00:41
00:44

is going to require overwhelming public support.

patcondell 00:44
00:48

Violence immediately snuffs that out like a candle. It's gone.

patcondell 00:48
00:52

This lunatic has murdered 76 innocent people

patcondell 00:52
00:56

and drawn hatred upon himself and everything he claims to believe in.

patcondell 00:56
00:59

He's hated in Norway. He's hated everywhere,

patcondell 00:59
01:02

as much as the suicide bombers in London and New York

patcondell 01:02
01:04

were hated and still are,

patcondell 01:04
01:09

and as much as any fanatical zealot who thinks they have the right to play god.

patcondell 01:09
01:13

Violence is not the answer. It's never the answer.

patcondell 01:13
01:17

And we will never progress as a species until we drag ourselves out

patcondell 01:17
01:21

of this swamp of violence. And that's why anyone who uses

patcondell 01:21
01:24

or who advocates violence for any political reason

patcondell 01:24
01:28

is my enemy. No exceptions.

patcondell 01:28
01:32

I couldn't help noticing, however, in the aftermath of this atrocity,

patcondell 01:32
01:35

a rather unhealthy eagerness in some quarters

patcondell 01:35
01:39

to apportion blame by association, as if all critics of Islam

patcondell 01:39
01:42

are somehow complicit in this man's insanity.

patcondell 01:42
01:45

Well, that's very unfortunate, but given that the rules have now

patcondell 01:45
01:49

clearly been changed in this regard, I'll be very interested to see

patcondell 01:49
01:53

how many hate-preaching imams are blamed for the next Islamic atrocity.

patcondell 01:53
01:58

No one who criticises Islam or multiculturalism

patcondell 01:58
02:01

is in any way responsible for this lunatic's actions.

patcondell 02:01
02:04

And the criticisms are all still entirely valid.

patcondell 02:04
02:09

Islam is still a totalitarian ideology that actively threatens our freedom,

patcondell 02:09
02:13

political correctness is still, yes, cultural marxism,

patcondell 02:13
02:16

and multiculturalism is still a lie.

patcondell 02:16
02:21

And, all over Europe, de facto blasphemy laws are still being used

patcondell 02:21
02:26

to prosecute people who criticise Islam, and only Islam.

patcondell 02:26
02:30

These horrific murders have not changed any of that.

patcondell 02:30
02:33

And the only thing that will change it,

patcondell 02:33
02:38

and the only way to get the overwhelming public support needed for change,

patcondell 02:38
02:43

is not through violence, but by defending freedom of speech, no matter what,

patcondell 02:43
02:47

and by telling the truth. That's all we need.

patcondell 02:47
02:53

Peace. And a little honesty would be nice as well.
