What do you get when you send a Calgary cocktail waitress (who thinks she is the next Hemingway) to a country populated by Muslim savages who live like the Flintstones? The result is a royal mess of suffering and sex abuse, a bill for $1.2 million and a stupid book.
The notorious Amanda Lindhout, who spent over a year in captivity in Somalia, has published a book about her ordeal, under the title “A House in the Sky”. The “promising” journalist didn’t even write it herself – it was done with the help of a writer from the New York Times, an enterprise that strongly supports the likes of Lindhout.
The Lindhout case is a textbook example of the typical narcissistic Canadian leftist, who thinks that other people should pay for her desire to “make a difference” in places where nobody has business going to. A few years ago we were flooded with sob stories about her suffering in Somalia, through which the Canadian media again glorified somebody too stupid to survive on her own.
Amanda Lindhout has been playing the Muslim roulette for years. She had two previous stunts as a freelancer in Muslim hellholes. She worked in Afghanistan, and then she landed a job in Baghdad for Press TV, the Iranian propaganda channel. Although she quit, working for the propaganda machine of the murderous Iranian regime cannot be excused.
She got lucky the first two times, but during her trip to Somalia she ran out of luck and the Muslim barbarism put a stop to her “noble endeavors.” She even lured a former boyfriend to join her in her travel (men really get demb when there is even the slightest chance of getting favours of certain kind from a woman). Soon after their arrival, they were kidnapped by an armed gang that held them for over a year in bad conditions.
Lindhout was raped numerous times by her captors. She was held in a dark room with rats, while her buddy was having much better life and even was provided books to read. The charms of the women’s rights under Islam!
Both of them even converted to Islam, which they believed would give them some protection. It didn’t. Although now she thinks that the conversion was not real and only done for safety reasons, in the eyes of the Muslim fanatics around the world she is still a Muslim. And by denying the fact, she became an apostate, which is even worse.
Fortunately, the attempts of their supporters to bail out these idiots by pressing the Canadian government to use money stolen from the taxpayers failed (the captors were asking for $3 million). The “honour” to get the two stooges from Somalia fell on their families and cost them $1.2 million. The report doesn’t explain how the family members felt about wasting so much money on financing Lindhout’s stupidity and the Muslim pirate industry in Somalia.
Still, Lindhout is not very happy that the Canadians didn’t rush to pay for her release:
“Lindhout doesn’t condemn the federal government for failing to save her, but she does write about countries around the world that quietly pay ransoms, “strike diplomatic deals or send in armed commandos” for their citizens.
“Many, including the Canadian and U.S. governments, try to provide family support while also maintaining a hard line about further fuelling terrorism and hostage-taking through ransom payments … Still, try telling that to a mother, or a father, or a husband or wife caught in the powerless agony of standing by,” the book reads.“
What a shining example of entitlement! She doesn’t say it directly, but she still expects the government to pay for her stupidity or send soldiers to die for it. That “criticism” would have some merit, if the case involved a diplomat or somebody else who was sent by the government. However, demanding that millions be paid to get out of a jam a cocktail waitress, who is too dumb to plan a safe trip, is a new low in the entitlement peddling industry.
Has Amanda Lindhout learned anything from her ordeal? It appears she didn’t, because she has her own explanation of what happened to her:
“Now living in Canmore, Alta., Lindhout says she still thinks about her kidnappers. She tries not to hate them and understands they are products of a violent environment and an unending war.”
Yes, the famous “root causes” explanation, which another Canadian idiot, Justin Trudeau, used to defend the Boston bombers. As long as there are people like Lindhout and Trudeau, who try to find the good in hardened criminals, the Somalis will continue their thriving industry of collecting hundreds of millions of dollars from suckers – both individuals and governments.
Both of them simply can’t comprehend that there are people in this world who are inherently evil and will continue to do whatever harm they are doing because it is highly profitable, regardless of how many bridges you try to build.
Amanda Lindhout hasn’t learned anything from her experience. I bet that in a few years she will get into a similar trouble and expect other people to bail her out again.
The lesson is for everybody else – you must fight evil by destroying it. Appeasement never works.
