Paris 2015


I created this image in response to the Eiffel Tower / peace symbol graphic that became widely circulated on the night of the Paris atrocity of November 13, 2015.

  1. Well nothing to worry about. Many of my Facebook friends have turned their profile pictures red, white and blue. That’ll show those terrorists!

    Meanwhile, The Guardian wets the bed, as always: “Parisians throw open doors in wake of attacks, but Muslims fear repercussions” Oooh, repercussions!

    But don’t worry, we’re informed. The French are fighting back! “Parisians take to bloodied streets in cautious defiance.” Yup, they went out and bought groceries the next day. Paris Strong!

    The French used to handle things differently, like in 1572 when Catholic France decided it had had enough of Protestant Huguenots and they slaughtered them in the streets. When the French start slaughtering Muslims and Africans, then we’ll know they are “defiant.” Meanwhile, what they will do is exactly nothing.

  2. Aeoli Pera, see my just-posted author’s note. An image of a circle with an Eiffel Tower in the middle, making a peace sign, was created on the evening of the terror attacks. I reworked that image in a raster graphic processing program, changing the stylized Eiffel Tower into a guillotine, another French icon. Then I added the silhouettes of traitors. I did this to communicate the idea that a pacifist sentiment (as communicated by the original graphic) is insufficient as far as our civilization’s response to this atrocity is concerned. My satire/reworking of the original image suggests that there are responsible parties involved in this scenario.

    Peterike, you gave me some food for thought. Stand by for a post on that subject.

  3. The cryptic “180” comment was because I assumed you must also be a denizen of My Posting Career, given how many other places you turn up. 180 is their gay racist bodybuilder jargon for “excellent post”.

  4. Well don’t worry! The French are fighting back!

    “Twelve aircraft including 10 fighter jets dropped a total of 20 bombs in the biggest air strikes since France extended its bombing campaign against the extremist group to Syria in September, a Defense Ministry statement said.”

    Oh my god, TWENTY bombs!!!! I guess that just about wraps this up. How can Islam possibly survive this hellish bombardment?

    Meanwhile, in the UK a woman decides to ban Muslims from her hair shop. She is promptly attacked on the Internet and, of course, arrested, because FREEDOM and DIVERSITY!

    Europe is still not serious. Not even remotely serious.

  5. Great work. Simple yet stunningly effective. Informs on several levels.

    Excellent takedown of yet another condescending media meme.

  6. Very clever. Agree with the sentiments expressed here. Until we see Muslims fearful to walk the streets of Paris and are actively seeking to leave France, there is no ‘defiance’. France needs to invoke the spirit of Charles ‘the Hammer’ Martel, not some silly peace sign (which shows weakness to a savage enemy that does not understand concepts like compassion, mercy, charity, etc.

    Might need a few more atrocities to wake the West up. First step is hang (or guillotine) the traitors.

    Nice work.
