Frequently controversial, ultra-liberal Madonna stopped her show in Stockholm Saturday to acknowledge the carnage of the terror attacks in Paris—first she got it right by refusing to give in to those who want “to shut us up”—but then she went horribly wrong.
““I was going to cancel my show tonight but then I thought to myself, ‘Why should I give that to them?” the singer said in tears. “Why should I allow them to stop me and to stop us from enjoying freedom?”
She went on, rightly declaring:
All of the places where people were killed were places where people were having fun. People were enjoying themselves, eating in restaurants, dancing, singing, watching a soccer match. These are freedoms that we take for granted, of course, and we must not but they’re freedoms that we deserve. We work hard and we deserve to have fun, and there is no one in this world that should have the right to stop us from doing what we love.
The pop artist acknowledged that “there are people who have no respect for human life,” who “do atrocious, degrading and unforgivable things” to others.
Then she veered into bleeding heart stupidity.
We must start treating every human being with dignity and respect, and this the only thing that will change the world… Only love will change the world, but it’s very hard to love unconditionally, and it’s very hard to love that which we do not understand or that which is different than we are, but we have to or this will go on and on forever.
Somehow, the idea became lost on her that loving radical Islamist terrorists who strap on suicide vests won’t accomplish anything but surrendering the very ideal Madonna praised: Enjoying freedom.
