Broad daylight. It’s a busy intersection in downtown Sydney, Australia. Traffic moving, horns honking. A blood-soaked knife, wielding Muslim runs past you shouting Allahu Akbar! You grab a chair.
Well, it’s Australia. They’ve got “common-sense™ gun laws.” Which is why multiple people were stabbed and one woman’s throat cut (she died) before he was eventually detained.
The dead woman was found inside a Clarence Street apartment, allegedly with her throat slit, after the knifeman was subdued by heroic bystanders about 2 pm using chairs and a milk crate in Wynyard Street after attempting to stab multiple people.
I don’t see a holster; did he have the chair with him, or will he be charged with shoplifting?
Seriously, where did he get that chair? Is he licensed? Does he have proper training?
Somebody did Something
Don’t worry. The police assure the locals he’s not a terrorist. The guy with the knife, I mean.
They do not believe it is a terror-related incident, and said the alleged attacker did not have links to any terrorist organizations – despite witnesses reporting the attacker was muttering religious slogans including ‘Allahu Akbar’.
NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller have said they found information on the man in the form of a USB stick ‘suggesting he had some ideologies related to terrorism’.
Distant relatives, no doubt. Can’t have the peeps worrying about terrorism after the state has disarmed everyone. Sydney could be the next London where you get frisked on street corners and detained on suspicion of possession of a vegetable peeler.
They are pointy with multiple sharp edges. Health and public safety first.
Now, imagine (it’s not that hard to do) if the Allah invoking Islamist were instead wearing a MAGA hat and shouting Make Australia Great Again! He’d be another one of those self-loathing racist Caucasian supremacist types (of color) pining for white rule — a true domestic threat.
It would be front-page news across the globe.
This, not so much. And remember, it’s not terrorism when you try to kill several people while yelling Allahu Akbar. He’s probably just working through some things — double spending on the mental health budget.
That’ll fix it.
But chairs on every corner would look so cozy. What could go wrong?
