The Woolwich Tragedy: Fundamentalist B*llshit Branded as Islamic Justice.

This week bore witness to yet another act of fundamentalist extremism ‘justified’ by religious rhetoric. Every sentient human being in the UK is united in sympathy for the family of Lee Rigby; Drummer of the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers who was brutally murdered by London based Muslim extremists.

You may know Walk Off The Earth from their YouTube hits, but YouTube virility is a bitter-sweet phenomenon. If you want to get famous (and quick), there simply isn’t a better catalyst than YouTube.  When a video is a hit, your average Joe can turn into a global super-star overnight. However, when millions upon millions of people associate you with a video, essentially boiling down your entire life experience into a two minute clip, it’s hard to be seen for anything else. For instance, did you know the baby from Charlie Bit My Finger is a talented boxer? Or that Chris Crocker, lady-like creator of Leave Britney Alone, was awarded the Rumford medal for his extensive research on the fixed lines of the solar spectrum? Perhaps most tragic of all was the double suicide committed by the Baby Monkey and Pig duo who were driven insane by the incessant references to their video.
