Sadness at Toulouse

Given the number of ill-judged and banal commentaries there have been from both the left and the bourgeois media, I have refrained from commenting upon the tragic events in Toulouse. It is especially important to weigh our words carefully at this time, given the vulnerable position that minority groups find themselves in. A considered response will be posted in due course. For now, this (below) seems to me to be the only proper response (from Tendance Coatsey):

Sadness at Toulouse.

Posted in Anti-Fascism, Fascism by Andrew Coates on March 21, 2012

Desperate sadness is all I would comment about the murders and stand-off in Toulouse.

Last night one of my closest comrades was so moved by the events that he had to come round to mine and speak about it.

Another phoned me to talk about it.

It is simply enormously distressing.

    Terrible events no doubt and yet another victory for the right.

    But I do notice your rather cherry picked attitude to terrible events. I mean no mention of the massacre of the Afghans, no “I am too distressed to talk” after that!

    In fact there has been far more meida coverage of this than the Afghan deaths. Though they are only Afghans after all!

    @ Jim D.

    Your reticence is to your credit, imo.

    @ Steve H.

    Please give reticence a go.

    YOUR FRIENDS SOUND LIKE WEAKLINGS TO ME. They will never be politicians AND HAVE TO DEFEND A NATION.
