Another Misguided Response to the Manchester Attack from Ariana Grande
Terror Trends Bulletin ^ | 28 May 17 | Christopher W. Holton

Posted on 05/28/2017 9:10:19 AM PDT by LSUfan

This week, pop singer Ariana Grande vowed to return to Manchester in the wake of the deadly Jihadist attack that killed 22 innocent victims, many of them teen age girls.

Grande posted a letter on Twitter with a message to her fans. While the letter may have been heartfelt, its message demonstrates how so many among us are clueless as to the threat from Islamic jihad. Here are some quotes from the letter, with our commentary after each quote.

It took hundreds of years for Europe to find resolve last time. Do they even have a couple of decades to get sick of this Satanic religion this time?

Naive idiots like Ariana Grande can’t seem to grasp that she is the ENEMY to the jihadists. They don’t want to love and “come together” and they certainly don’t want her music. They loathe all of the “western” arts & music, most certainly all contemporary “sexy” music like hers. But even Beethoven is verbotten to them, they disdain all music.

Get a clue Ariana, they want to KILL you and all of your young fans. There is no compromise and no “coming together” with the jihadists, it is kill them or be killed. Period.

Do they (Europe) even have a couple of decades

No. It's WW3 and everyone who submits to the EU, Germany, and their global elitist partners has lost. The only hope is away from France, Germany and adjoining countries that have joined in the scheme. Some countries, such as Hungary and Poland, have leaders that might catch up to their residents and not be bought out. It's not easy, any more than it is in the US. Look at Greece, for example. How many times did citizens vote for leaders specifically to stand up to EU tyranny? EVERY TIME those leaders sold out!

she shouldnt be clueless..the wealth of her family came from military contracts thanks to her grandfather. I don’t know if her mother still runs the company or if she is more a stage mom at this point.

This article reads over Ariana’s open letter to her fans, and picks it apart, almost line by line.
We all know she is an immature, vain entertainer, but for someone in her position, given her Diva background, it’s not a bad letter at all.

Of course she is foolish and naive and more than a little dense not to ‘understand why’ terror is happening, but she’s making an effort to do the right thing.
How many of us here would even consider go back to a foreign city to do a show, after 22 people got Nail-Bombed?
I doubt if I would, at least not this soon.
Put it this way, at least Arianna is handling this better than some older performers such as Katy Perry, who advises that we ‘just love each other more!”.

Greece isn’t the best example.

It’s hard to not sell out when your people will throw you out if the goodies from government slow down and sucking up is the only way to keep them coming at all.

The demands of the Greek people were, in essence, irrational.

They wanted their welfare state but they had no ability to sustain it anymore.

This was actually a direct consequence of the Euro. It is a fiat currency but sans controlling the central bank that regulates the money countries like Greece, who are weaker than the strong economies propping up the Euro and setting its “value”, cannot engage in any of the monetary policies that are the ONLY benefit of fiat systems.

This meant, despite using a fiat currency, they may as well be on some specie backed currency when they’ve no reserves of same and it’s issued by some other country anyway. The only way to get more money to spend is to borrow or beg ... and that comes with strings.

It is more or less inevitable that the Euro will do this to every national economy that has a sinking moment, that can’t swim with the big boys.

Far from enriching all of Europe it will enrich the bankers at the expense of whole countries and require the producers to work even harder.

I agree, its not a bad letter. And its the right answer, to come back and do a benefit in defiance of the killers. And as for clueless, its the British government that takes the cake for that one.

She is no less a predator on those children than the Muslim. She just uses lust as a weapon rather than explosives to destroy.

Is this her own heartfelt words, or was she coached by her agent? And another thing. When an alcoholic or drug addict is really ready to get help the first thing the MUST do is to not only admit they have a problem and take ownership of that problem, but to ANNUNCIATE what the problem is. Without these all important first steps all the rehab in the world is BS. In other words

What up, Ariana? They didn’t get enough kids the first time? Are you the Muslim magnet for ISIS?

Another flaming socialist, anti-Christian, anti-gun, narcissist entertainer, writing a bunch of dishonest claptrap, the ultimate purpose of which is to keep the money flowing into her bank account.

Grande is an illiterate boob, but more sadly, Scooter Braun and RBMG are completely in over their heads.

Grande said that we can’t let hate win.

The problem is that the Jihadists are unaffected by what emotion we feel towards them because they don’t care.

The important thing to know is that if we don’t get angry at them and hate their ideology, THEY WILL WIN.

“Is this her own heartfelt words, or was she coached by her agent?”

It was important to scoop James Taylor this time.

Besides, who hates America like Grande does?

Loved her character in Victorius, was hoping she’d land a dumb cartoon character for life like Bill Fagerbakke did.

Jade was the real talent anyway.
