According to French television reports, two masked gunmen got out of a car, carrying sub-machine guns, entered the magazine’s offices and sprayed bullets. This is the most serious terrorist attack against the news media that has ever happened in France. From surveillance footage, the gunmen can be heard shouting “Allahu Akbar“.

That was an injured Parisian JC. Certain groups indeed are inhuman, without the least bit of humanity.

When this video was broadcasted by CNN, they edited out these few seconds, CCTV cut it out too. Too cruel/merciless.

Extremists must be killed without mercy!

Would you be shot dead by a monk for cursing/criticizing Buddha? Would you be shot dead by a priest/pastor for cursing/criticizing Jesus? Then faith would be a White Terror [or “that faith is a white terror”]!

Fuck. A firefight in the 11th arrondissement [district of Paris] and then they fled. Fleeing is one thing, but the ended up fleeing to departement 93. My home is in 93. I don’t even dare go home when I get off work soon.

CCAV once again has something to talk about.

jackbauer24hours [喵星人]:

Why are things so bad abroad?
Can you people be a bit more harmonious?

jackyx6 [网易上海市网友]: (responding to above)

This news has had a lot of key information cut out.

沧海一粟粉碎机 [网易中国手机网友]:

When a shooting or sudden incident occurs in Europe or America, rolling or special coverage is the standard; if it happened domestically, CCAV’s response is to either be silent or to report it.

The increasing volatility with Muslim extremist terrorist and America’s Hispanic and black population are the inevitable result of white European and American zhuang bi. The Muslimification of Europe Hispanification of America are getting worse by the day, currently in the process of swallowing the fair democratic social order established in Europe an America. Fortunately, Europeans are now waking up. Germans daily demonstrating in protest against the government’s Muslim immigration policies is clear proof, if only it wasn’t too late! A moment of silence for the victims of this act of terrorism. May the departed rest in peace.
