Allahu Akbar: Machete Wielding Jihadist Attacks Louvre In Paris

Do you think it is possible for French President François Hollande’s approval rating to sink below its current 4 percent?

“PARIS — French soldiers opened fire on a man wielding a machete who shouted “Allahu akbar” as he attacked them near the Louvre museum in Paris on Friday. The attacker was seriously wounded and has been hospitalized.

The incident happened at the Carrousel du Louvre, an underground shopping center that connects to the museum. The world-famous Louvre is home to Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. It wasn’t immediately clear if any tourists were at the scene of the attack at the time.

Yves Lefebvre, a police union official, said the attacker, who was carrying two backpacks and two machetes, attacked a soldier when he was told that he couldn’t bring his bags into the mall.

“That’s when he got the knife out and that’s when he tried to stab the soldier,” Lefebvre said, according to the Associated Press.

French President François Hollande said there’s “no doubt” that the attack was of a “terrorist nature.” Hollande said Friday that the situation is “totally under control” but the overall threat of terrorism to France remains, the AP reported. …”

President Trump has already chimed in on Twitter:

Just a few days ago, Hollande lectured President Trump on defending democracy:

“The comments came a day after President François Hollande of France, who unlike Ms. Merkel is not running for re-election this year, said he had reminded Mr. Trump of his “conviction that the ongoing fight to defend our democracy will be effective only if we sign up to respect to the founding principles and, in particular, the welcoming of refugees.” …

As we have seen here, these small-scale knife and machete attacks by jihadists are nothing new in Europe: I’ve covered at least three in Belgium, one in Toulouse, France, one in Magnanville, France, the beheading of the French priest in Rouen, one in Russia, one in London in the UK, and at least two in Germany. There have undoubtedly been many more of these small-scale machete attacks in Europe over the past few months, but they haven’t been newsworthy enough to break into the news cycle in the United States with everything else that has been going on here.

It is actually even more complicated. There are refugee crimes involving machetes as well as mass shootings in Europe which are not terrorism, but ordinary crimes of passion. There are also the much more well known truck attacks like Nice and the Berlin Christmas Market, suicide bombings like Ansbach, mass sexual assaults like Cologne, gang rapes in Germany, bombings like in Brussels and mass slaughters like the Bataclan and Charlie Hebdo.

I’m sure this taxonomy of refugee and immigrant violence in Europe will grow in the years ahead. The truck attacks are a recent innovation. Europe is becoming less safe by the day. Angela Merkel’s government even has a website which instructs refugees in how to literally **** their country. These liberal democratic politicians blessed a Muslim invasion without giving any thought to the consequences. And yet, these failures give human rights lectures to our president!

    “Trump Stays Silent On Mosque Shooting While Raging Over Louvre Knife Attack”

    From the comments section:

    “Statistics clearly evidence the fact that white, (faux) Christian, right-wing extremists are a FAR greater threat to the lives of Americans than muslims in this country . . . but the GOP would NEVER want white America to take an honest look at that fact as it might lead to white America realizing that maybe extremism in ANY form is bad. Maybe White America would decide that we should address real issues and real underlying problems.”

    A comment by an ostensible White man. Obviously, he lives in an enclave, where he’s safe enough to be able to think things like this.

    • If I were you, I’d tell him he lives in a bubble and then challenge him to go live in a majority Muslim neighborhood.

      When he responds by calling you a racist, just say you don’t care. We have to desensitize people to the buzzwords being used against us.

        • Once again, you write a post that is nothing more than a vehicle by which to carry a personal insult.

          …Perhaps you’re still mad at me because I pointed out the hypocrisy of you coming to a Southern Nationalist site and repetitively insulting the intellect of Southerners – all while your own state has no equivalent of the League of the South? You never responded to me when I pointed that out.

          So here’s your chance: either put up or shut up. If you want to insult others show that you’re smarter than us.

          I’m waiting.

          • If my comment seems to you to have been nothing more than a vehicle for a personal insult, well, then, you deserved one.

      • “We have to desensitize people to the buzzwords being used against us.”

        See my comment, above.
        Death to the old Order of the (((Bolshies.)))

    • This is considered raging?

      A new radical Islamic terrorist has just attacked in Louvre Museum in Paris. Tourists were locked down. France on edge again. GET SMART U.S.

      • Neither am I. But we’re both stupid, uneducated savages if we don’t believe it. And racist©® biggots, too.

        • It’s HuffPo. They’re a bunch of circle jerk leftists who have their heads up their collective Marxist *ssholes. They’re the past- jettison them; move on -for Christ and his REAL kingdom, the Trumpenreich.

          • I know. But I still find what they say interesting. They’re defense of degeneracy and the real misery it causes, is stunning. What we’re up against is truly terrifying.

  2. And now I hear that a U.S. federal court has ruled that Trump’s refugee ban is suspended nationwide. Wonderful! Diversity has certainly been a strength for France and it will continue to be so for us.
