Some Poignancy And Smartass Musings

Hey Media, It Isn’t Suicide!

Hey Media, It Isn’t Suicide!

Suicide Know Not

I am absolutely disgusted with Media insisting on calling terror attacks, “Suicide Bombing”.

Media refuse to recognize and refuse to use the correct terminology for the attacks and that is a reality.

The attacks are in fact, “HOMICIDE BOMBING“. The attacks are designed to murder with the death of the murderer as an acceptable loss to the cause of other murderers.

The word “SUICIDE ” imparts a far different message than the word “HOMICIDE”!

Share this post, Reblog this post, Go to local and national media sites and post this up on their sites. Keep posting this message on media sites and do it in a way that media cannot just delete your comment. Maybe if enough of us who know the difference between suicide and homicide do this, then media will get the idea and start calling the murderous act what it is, “HOMICIDE BOMBING“.

suicide ~ noun    rare
1. the act of killing yourself
2. a person who kills himself intentionally

No where in the definition of suicide does it reference the deliberate act of taking others with you.

homicide ~ noun    very rare
1. the killing of a human being by another human being

The reference you see for homicide is the only reference to the word in my thesaurus.

    Here’s the problem with that: redundancy and lack of detail. The reason the idea never got any traction the first time around (a decade ago) is that all bombings are homicide bombings. Duh! The term “suicide bomber” actually gives quite a bit of detail about how the bombing was executed. This is an another example of political correctness actually obscuring the facts.

      I see what you say and do not disagree.

      A good friend suggested it should just be “bombings”.

      Suicide glorifies the perpetrator. As those who just take their own lives raises questions on what could have been done to help and prevent the person taking their own life.

      “Suicide Bomber” allows a glorification and acceptance. Softening is maybe a better word of the perception the act.

      Hey if you can come up with a better term I’ll jump on board!

      Thanks for dropping by and your comment.

      Naturally I think of it after I make the comment.

      The “Suicide” description is also something that can be used by the controllers as propaganda. When media is calling it suicide the controllers can and probably do say, “it isn’t you killing people it is you giving for the cause”.

      Just a thought.

    Hmmm… well that is an interesting point! Now that I think about it, it actually ought to be referred to as “murder-suicide bomber” because homicide of both victim and perpetrator by said perpetrator is referred to as a “murder-suicide”. Thanks for the thought-provoking post, G.R. 🙂 ♥ ❤
