Are you really surprised? There are hundreds of thousands of murders every year, how often is such an iconic monument destroyed (or heavily damaged)?

were not talking about isolated murders, are we? Iconic monuments do get damaged all the time. The spire that burned down, for example, isn't even the original spire. A host of world heritage sites got destroyed in the past 2 decades in Iraq and Syria. In france, half of their medieval castles are falling into irreversible disrepair. I'm not surprised that this fire saddens people, it saddens me too, but if this is a national tragedy, then it erodes the meaning of the word, in my opinion.

but in any case, the point about weariness is indeed valid, I think, and it seems that as people have become callous to murders, as there are so many of them, people now too seem to become callous to terror events against people, as there have been many of them recently. So, again, IF this was a terror attack, which it seems like it wasn't based on what the French government is telling its people and the world, then it is a successful change in strategy. Even if Muslims didn't set this building ablaze, people posting things like what bramboy posted will nonetheless use it to sow, maintain and perpetuate division, and thus only playing right into terrorist aims, had it been a terrorist attack.

Would you like to explain why you chose to show this tweet in this thread?
Alarmism is always funny. Those who peddle these stories are trashcans, that's a given, but what is even more funny is the emotionalism surrounding this event, mostly on social media:
"Im not even Christian and this breaks my heart, literally one of the most amazing buildings in Europe."

"I’m actually crying. Such a sad thing. I cannot wrap my mind around losing something like Notre Dame"

"I feel you. I just did a batch of crying but I am feeling it coming again. This is just... i can't believe it's happening. It survived 8 centuries only to go down in flames on our watch."

Nah, that's actually a different phenomenon, those aren't normies.
They're edgy kids who want to reconquer Constantinople.

No, but when you're asked a troll question, you give a troll answer.

Your reply couldn't have been serious either. Even if you use basic logic you realise the alt right are not normies, lol. And they have much different reasons for being concerned about the burning of the Notre Dame than normies do.
But welp, it sucks when I have to spell it out.

Sorry for not being familiar with all your hispter terms. I dont need newspeak to be cool. I just sweat charisma, like a real man does.

But who are normies, why are they crying because of the notre dame, and what does mj have to with it? Im intrigued, tell me profeshor dolannnn

What I don't get is why didn't they fireproof that wooden spire and roof. Even if it was last restored in the 19th century, they could have still applied chemical treatments to the wood to make it non-flammable.
There's a type of fire retardant paint you can apply to make the wood more resistant to flame exposure.

Already 300m+ in donations. Probably intentionally started by the French government so that they can restore it with like a tenth of the money they got for it, keeping the rest. :hmm:
One way to tax the rich, I guess.
Whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

If they have building code they probably did.

Fire resistance is not the same as fire proofing. Putting some temporary heat on a paint is not the same as prolonged, higher heat, and the decreased chemical effectiveness brought with exposure and time.

Also, this paint is white, and white is uglier than wood.

Also, regulations are good.

Do you really believe that?

It's obvious that it's intentionally caused. We just simply aren't living in a world where something like this wouldn't be done intentionally. We're at war, and have been for a while now. The traitors in the French government are going to suppress it. Journalists, just like our governments and corporate overlords, are enemies of the people, and won't give you anything but the official 'accident' story. Let's look at the facts that we currently know



Who is this guy? The French government has confirmed that there were no workers on site at the time of the fire, ~18:30. The project lead has also confirmed that electricity was shut off during the construction. In case you hadn't realized yet, Monday marked exactly 30 days since the terrible Christchurch attack. Furthermore, Monday was the first day of the Holy Week of Easter, a Christian holiday. This was not only an attack on the Notre Dame, but an attack on Western civilization as we know it. Thankfully, if there's anyone to count on to ignite a revolution, it's the French. God forbid it's too late for change.
