Oh the irony. Je Suis Coward.

The West had better man up, and soon.

“Brussels ′March Against Fear′ cancelled over security concerns,” DW, March 28, 2016:

Following official warnings, organizers in Brussels have postponed a planned solidarity rally. European nations have boosted security since the Brussels bombings, with Germany and Belgium arresting several suspects.


Belgian Interior Minister Jan Jambon on Saturday urged people to refrain from participating in Sunday’s planned “March Against Fear” rally, citing the current threat level, limited “police capacity” and the need to prioritize the investigation into the bombings, according to Belga news agency.

At a joint press conference with Jambon, Brussels Mayor Yvan Mayeur said authorities were stretched thin by ongoing investigations following Tuesday’s attacks across Brussels that left more than 30 dead and hundreds injured.

“Let us allow the security services to do their work and that the march – which we, too, want to take part in – be delayed for several weeks,” the mayor told reporters.

Following the press briefing, the rally’s organizers announced the event’s cancellation in a statement.

“The security of our citizens is an absolute priority,” the organizers said.

“Consequently, we completely join the authorities in their proposal to postpone to a later date. We thus ask citizens not to come this Sunday to Brussels,” the statement added.

The announcement comes as Belgium and other European countries ramp up security across the continent in the wake of Tuesday’s attacks.

    What is the translation of ‘submit’ again?

      “Belgian”

  • Mahou Shoujo

    What is secure about putting your tail between your legs and skulking off like a beaten dog? Fear is having its march that day, it has the unanimous support of the population and their fearful “leaders”. Pamplona has the running of bulls, Brussels has the scattering of chickens.

    • Robbydot1

      The scattering of chickens. Good line.

  • Collin R. Hinrichs

    So the chickens can’t rally for the fear of the wolves they let in the coop.

    We Europeans used to call Belgium the Mickey Mouse of Europe, well Mickey Mouse had some courage the Belgiums are a joke. They were never able to find the murderers gang of Nijvel (place near Brussels) which killed many people in the mid 1980s on Friday nights and in supermarkets.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      If Belgium is Mickey Mouse, then sweden is Daffy Duck.

      • joker

        Belgium is a funny country (call it like that). They have probably the best mercenaries in the world, in case you need a gun or rifle it is the place to be, the fries are very nice, they do lovely bon-bons and the country has three languages. But finding the murderes gang of Nijvel is a big problem. Like Sweden (Daffy Duck) never found the killer of Olaf Palme.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Sometimes those who have money and power do not find it convenient to have to account for how they use it. Hence, investigations are skillfully run into dead ends, then left to rot.

  • BrunoPBuhr

    After years of allowing migration of people that don’t accept and will not assimilate into western culture, Belgium FINALLY started inspecting Islamic no go zones and are overwhelmed with surprise at the level of hated the rotting decadence of Islam has infected the country like a cancer making it unsafe for any decent human beings to congregate. Is it politically correct to end the cancers hold on civilization? Who TF cares, burn it down!

  • Collin R. Hinrichs

    An unsettling parallel is D.Trump having to cancel a rally due to ‘potential violence’.

    • harbidoll

      he was waiting for the “bikers for Trump” people to get organized.

    I’ve HAD IT with the multi-craptual crowd and the beta males.
    I won’t lift a finger to help them with the koranderthals, in fact, i’m considering converting to islam just to be able to go jihad on the cowards.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Ha it ever occurred to the brain dead leaders of countries colonized by muslim invaders, that they should consider proactive security measures to prevent murderous attacks, rather than spending much more on reaction and damage control?

    • steve

      For decades I’ve been saying that we’re doing this ass backwards. Instead of beingon the defensive mourning the dead, waiting for the next attack, and beingx-ray strip searched at airports, we need to be aggressively on the offensive.Those raghead scum should be so deathly afraid of us that they policethemselves: “Achmed, don’t do anything to the Americans! The will kill us all back with nuclear weapons and only leave 1 person alive to tell the tale, like Kaiser Soze!” I don’t believe in an eye for an eye, I believe in a
      kiloton for an eye. ….and while we’re at it, nuke ’em from orbit,
      it’s the only way to be sure.

      • Logic Probe

        They should have nuked Mecca straight after the Cold War…………or let the Israelis do it.

  • Lapsed Altruist

    And that’s why they are doomed.

    • Core Macro

      European countries should cut back on Police and Military spending so they’ll have enough funds to contract out more hotels to house the migrants arriving. Sounds like a plan!

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Easier just to have the european union issue an edict evicting home owners and renters from their property to make room for the “best of all people” according the the european unions handbook, otherwise known as the qur’an.

  • Dravaa

    Brussels ‘March Against Fear’ cancelled due to … fear.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      This cancelled public event brought to you by the Belgian poultry management corporation division of the european chicken producers administration.

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        LOL. You’re on a roll today!

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Spring is sprung, the grass iz riz, I wonders where, the jihadists iz?

  • Core Macro

    I’m just getting the feeling that we in Europe are just monumentally fu k ed. Can’t really see how this is going to get better with Muslim immigration and birthrates.
    I’d love to have a time machine and come back in 60 years just to see what happened to Europe.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Would be better to take care of todays issues rather than wait for them to take care of your descendants, heirs and successors.

      • Core Macro

        Of course I agree, I was just dreaming.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Dreaming is good, that is where ideas and actions start.

      ~And America watches and…..waits? Best of luck to you, I don’t see any middle ground.

  • Joe Manhattaner

    Brussels ′March Against Fear′ cancelled over fear!!
    Yes we will show the immigrants we got balls….ok we don’t.
    Lets just make more candles and teddy bears

  • pete

    Who was it that said, “Know your Manners, Lest you’ll be offensive?”

    • Mahou Shoujo

      For sure it was no muslim.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    A few Belgian patriots showed up to protest, they were immediately labeled skinheads and hooligans, then had water cannons turned on them. Why are muslim terrorists not labled and dealt with for disturbances of society?

    • Drew the Infidel

      Agreed. It must not fit the modus operandi of a coward per the example of Obhammud.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        The lame stream media, in its capacity of dhimmi yellow dogs, could not ignore events, so they try to belittle those who have the courage it takes to stand up to islam.

  • joe1429

    But they sure brought out the water cannons real fast on the anti muzrat protestors! What happened to their right to protest??

    • Core Macro

      But they are Nazis, if you look carefully you can actual see a very old man in the crowd… Adolf?

      • joe1429

        Whatever their affiliation.. they still have the right to protest. They were protesting against the immigration policies. they werent blowing up anybody, like the immigrant muzrats , they were protesting against

        • Core Macro

          I was trying to be ironic, didn’t do very well, I agree with you entirely.
          And no I do not think they are Nazis ‘for the record’! They are angry and frustrated citizens pushed into a corner by their leaders.

  • Drew the Infidel

    This reads like a sick joke: ” Did you hear about the Belgians who were going to conduct a march against fear but backed out because they were too afraid?” My neighbor has a meaner Belgian in his yard.

  • Drew the Infidel

    The insinuation by Obhammud and Kerry that we are winning against the IS-holes is about like the old joke about the baseball team that was losing 29-0. A player asked the manager how they were doing. The manager said, “They are 29 and we are zero, but we are still winning.” The player asked, “How do you figure we are still winning?”. To which the manager replied, “We haven’t batted yet.”

  • Mindy Robinson

    Don’t allow followers of islam withing 20 miles of the march and you won’t have problems.

  • OneLife

    Oh the irony. If we get to this state…it will already be too late for us, as well. Is this the unofficial turning point for Brussels? What will “we” do? Be prepared, be very prepared.
