Chris Muir got this one right, as he most often does.
Looks as though things are getting interesting:
The attack one week ago on two substations in Moore County, N.C., resulted in the loss of power to 45,000 people and raised questions about the security of America’s power grid.
And when further attacks in North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, and Oregon were revealed, those questions have now become urgent. Are the attacks — all involving gunfire targeting substations — unrelated pranks, or are they connected to a plot of some kind?
As outlandish as the idea of some kind of coordinated attack on our electrical grid being underway sounds, federal authorities are not dismissing anything or any theory at this point. They can’t afford to. The electric infrastructure our country depends on is critical — especially moving into the winter months when so many homes use electric heat.
Here’s what I find interesting. If we assume that these attacks are not committed by the Random Asshole Set — teenage boys, for example — and I think it’s safe to they’re they’re not, given the geographic locations of each attack, it behooves us to try to figure out who are behind them. Here are my thoughts.
Radical Muslims. Our perennial bugbears, they are, although I think it’s unlikely they’re intent on bringing the electrical grid down; their preferred target is people, not stuff. Again, nothing is impossible and they might have changed their modus to punish The Great Satan by ending video gaming, porn movie gazing and Sunday morning Christian broadcasts, but I think it’s a remote chance, at best.
Leftist / Gummint provocateurs [some overlap]. I would believe this if, say, the FBI were announcing that “right-wing hate groups / White supremacists” are “persons of interest” in their investigations. But I don’t think even the NY Times will buy that story. Most persuasively, there are no RWHG / WS groups capable of organizing such widely-dispersed and well-planned acts of sabotage, simply because actual membership of such groups is scattered over thousands of basements across the U.S.A., and I think too many of these people, feeble as they are, would be willing to risk being set up by Fibbie plants in their ranks. Those birds ain’t gonna fly again soon.
Eco-terrorists. Yeah, as a next step to gluing yourselves to roads and paintings, this would be a logical exercise for these nutcases. The part that makes this so credible is that the Radical Greens have a wide, international membership — so you could bring in a group from Germany, the U.K. and all over Europe, give them the plan and the explosives, have them execute the plan and fly them out of the nearest major international airport while the pieces are still falling out of the sky. The Carolina attacks, for example, took place not far from Charlotte-Douglas, and the Washington- and Portland ones are close-ish to both Portland PDX and SeaTac airports. Thus there are no local suspects because there are no local perpetrators.
It’s all early days, of course, and no doubt greater minds than mine are considering the same variables; just none at the FBI, because they’re too busy trying to fit some chumps in the Christian Urban Brotherhood Society — CUBS — in Biloxi MS into the frame.

The simple answer is the title of this post.
Longer answer: Do not expect help from those whom you hate and actively seek to destroy.
Fuck ’em; their medieval belief system, their backwards society, their honor killings and their hijabs: fuck ’em all.
They’re savages and should be treated as such.
Needless to say, our Congress is no doubt authorizing a few billion dollars in aid, which just makes me all the more eager for November 2022.
Ah yes… harsh reality sets in once the Great Satan has flown the last helicopter off the embassy building:
Approximately one million children in Afghanistan currently suffer from malnutrition, the country’s Ministry of Public Health said Monday, Tolo News reported.
Afghan Deputy Minister of Public Health Abdul Bari Omar revealed the figure to domestic media on November 15, adding, “700,000 Afghan women … are suffering from malnutrition along with the children.”
And right on cue, we get the old 1946 song sung again, as we are asked to implement the Marshall Plan Redux, toot sweet:
The “foreign ministry” of the Taliban urged the United States Congress in an open letter published Wednesday to unfreeze Afghan government assets to allow them to govern effectively, asserting that they are a “united, responsible and non-corrupt government.”
Three words: GO. FUCK. YOURSELVES.
Lest we forget, these same children were used by the Taliban as human shields against U.S. and other Western troops right up until we left the place — disposable trinkets (just like the Pals do against Israel, speaking of loathsome Muslim assholes).
Now we’re supposed to get all teary-eyed and guilty because this so-called Afghan government is suddenly overcome with care and concern about the kiddies (such care and concern notably absent when it comes to whipping “immodestly-dressed girls” in the streets, but nemmind).
Go wave your tinkly little beggar cups somewhere else, assholes. You asked for this; now deal with it.
Or, here’s a thought: collect all foreign nationals still trapped in Afghanistan and ship them safely to (say) Istanbul first, and then we may talk to you.
And by the way: I loved Audrey Hepburn, but UNICEF can also kiss my hairy African-American ass. They can raise money from, I dunno, other Muslim countries e.g. the Gulf States or Saudi Arabia or someone. We know that if Christian children were starving in their millions, none of the above — and least of all Afghanistan — would lift a damn finger to help them.
F.O.A.D., the lot of you. Enough is enough.
A 29-year-old Afghan man in Germany attacked and severely injured a 58-year-old landscape gardener who was working in a park in Berlin, allegedly because he didn’t like the fact that as a woman she was working, police said Sunday.
The attack in the city’s Wilmersdorf district took place Saturday afternoon, and a 66-year-old passerby, who tried to come to the woman’s rescue, was also severely injured.
I am truly curious to see what happens when (not if) the new crop of Afghan “refugees” tries this kind of nonsense here in the U.S.
It may require just a few Righteous Shootings to help them assimilate. Just sayin’.
