The siege continued…

The police have a suspect in the Toulouse and Montauban murders. RAID, a special elite unit of the French police, stormed a building in Toulouse at 3:10 a.m. As soon as the police arrived, the suspect opened fire. One policeman was wounded in the knee, another was slightly injured. Still barricaded inside, the man is now negotiating with the police through the door.The New York Times has further information on the siege and the suspect, also posted at about 2:30 a.m. Among other things, the police now know his name. It is … Muhammad. That’s a common name on the traditionalist right, of course. Just not our traditionalist right.
The Times continues:
Before the authorities said on Wednesday that their prime suspect claimed ties to Al Qaeda, many analysts had speculated on whether he was motivated by extreme right-wing passions coinciding with the presidential elections.
I think they’ll do more than hush it up—if only because the case has received too much coverage to be flushed down the memory hole immediately, at least here in Europe. Here’s how I think it will be spun. We already know that only white Europeans are moral actors—the liberal ones for good, the conservative ones for evil—while nonwhites are simply passive receptacles without free will or moral responsibility. It follows that whenever nonwhites do something bad, the evil (conservative) whites are always ultimately at fault somehow. The gunman in this case is an Algerian Muslim, and white conservatives must therefore ultimately be at fault for his crimes. Considering the facts of the case, I predict the blame will be pinned on either Israel or Marine Le Pen and the Front National—possibly both. Look for phrases like “climate of hatred” to be thrown about a lot in the coming weeks.
