Just Random, Senseless Tragedies

This just in:

RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson says there’s no evidence of a link between Parliament Hill gunman Michael Zehaf-Bibeau and Martin Couture-Rouleau, who ran down two Canadian soldiers in Quebec on Monday.

No, nothing linking these two. Can’t seem to turn up anything they might have had in common.

Well, here’s one thing: they both provide opportunities for further confirmation of Auster’s First Law of Majority-Minority Relations in Liberal Society, which can be expressed as follows:

Once the equality of all human groups is accepted as a given, any facts that make a minority or foreign group seem worse than the majority native group must be either covered up or blamed on the majority.

The First Law has a corollary:

The more egregiously any non-Western or non-white group behaves, the more evil whites are made to appear for noticing and drawing rational conclusions about that group’s bad behavior.

These two terrorists are as “linked” as two fingers poking out of a glove.

  1. The more egregious the behavior the greater the Left’s Schadenfreude.

    Actually, that’s not how I see it, Henry. They’ll agree that it’s bad, but the fact that great swathes of reality are ruled off-limits as causal explanations means that they have to redouble their efforts to put the blame elsewhere.

  3. You are more generous than I am, Malcolm. But it’s still a free country, and everyone is still entitled to their own opinion.

    My own view is that: as Groucho was the father of wisecracks, Karl was the motherf*cker of crackpots and the personification of evil.
