Rédoine Faïd was caught again yesterday in Paris, following his latest prison break in early July.
One of France’s most notorious criminals, Rédoine Faïd, has been captured three months after he made an astonishing escape by helicopter from a French prison.
The repeat offender has fascinated the country, as NPR’s Eleanor Beardsley reports, and is known there as the “jailbreak king.” He’s spoken about how his actions are inspired by Hollywood gangster movies like Scarface.
Faïd had been serving a 25-year-sentence for a botched armed robbery in 2010 that killed a policewoman. And, he had previously escaped from another prison in 2013, that time using explosives.
So yeah, this guy is an Arab. He’s the son of Algerian immigrants to France. I don’t give a fuck what race he is, he’s a hero. That is, he is a supervillain in an age of very good goys.
Maybe if we had white guys living lives like this guy, we wouldn’t be globally mocked as a bunch of cowardly babies.
Seriously, other than faker actors, the only symbol of white masculine rebelliousness is… Conor McGregor. Who just apes masculinity by acting like a nigger, and humiliated the entirety of white males by taking millions of dollars to do a interracial BDSM porno in the form of the Mayweather fight.
Meanwhile, Arabs not only have hundreds of thousands of motherfuckers running around in deserts chopping people’s heads off, they’ve also got a legit criminal mastermind.
In the 1990s, while he was in his 20s, Faïd led a criminal gang in Paris that did bank robberies, jewel heists and extortion rackets. He then fled to Israel and learned Hebrew and pretended to be an Orthodox Jew while learning weapons training from an IDF soldier.
In 1998, he was caught and sent back to France and sentenced to 30 years, but only served 10.
In 2009, he published a book about running criminal gangs. Apparently, that whole time he was continuing to run criminal gangs, and in 2010 he was indicted for masterminding a heist where a cop died. He was sent back to prison for 8 years in 2011 – but he broke out in 2013, using explosives to blast through five separate prison doors, holding 4 guards hostage and escaping in a car. He stopped the car and burned it, then escaped in another car.
He was caught a month later while trying to flee to Israel to pretend to be a Jew again.
Then, in July of this year, he broke out of prison when two of his gang-members flew in with a stolen helicopter that they hijacked from a flight school, forcing the flight instructors to fly it at gunpoint on the breakout mission.
Three weeks later, he was spotted and engaged in a high-speed chase through the streets of Paris and got away.
Then, yesterday, they got him. He’d been living in a Paris suburb, walking around in a burka.
I’m not endorsing criminality.
I’m endorsing having balls and doing shit big, whatever it is. I have friends from when I was a kid who work menial jobs in the financial sector. I tell them if they want to work in finance, they need to be going full Wolf of Wall Street, making tens of millions of dollars, living in a Manhattan penthouse and doing cocaine off the tits of $1000 an hour hookers – or they should find another line of work – or some other way to live their lives.
Unless you’re an NPC, there is no reason that you shouldn’t go all the way with whatever it is you are doing. You can do whatever. Anyone who wants to do anything can do it, if they have the will and intelligence, and it is only fear that holds anyone back.
White men are paralyzed by fear. That is the defining character of the modern white male: fear.
And if you live in fear, your life cannot have meaning. It is impossible to live a meaningful life without accepting the absolute fact that some day you will die. If you are capable of accepting and internalizing this eventuality, you can become whatever you want to become.
A personal anecdote: after the Charlottesville thing, when I became the most censored man on earth, when all of these new forms of censorship were invented to silence me, when literally millions of dollars were spent trying to keep me from being able to freely share my thoughts, there was a realization that at some point, I am going to piss off so many powerful people that the possibility of an assassination becomes increasingly likely.
And though I am careful, ultimately, I cannot prevent that, if it is to happen.
All I can do is either give up or say to myself:
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
I chose to do the latter.
I am all in on this life, because I know that whatever happens in this life, I am going to die. Whether it is by assassination later today or of old age 50 years from now after having served as an advisor to Emperor Barron, I will be just as dead in the end. And the only thing that will have mattered is how I lived my life – and how the life I lived altered the course of history.
I cannot know the will of God, but I can know that there is an angel that sits over me and guides me in the direction I am intended to go in, and all I can do is trust that part of myself.
To each and every young man reading this: if you are here then you are a human being and you are capable of whatever you can imagine yourself being capable of. The only thing that can ever stop you is your own fear.
Fear of pain, fear of shame, fear of loss, fear of guilt, fear of death.
If you can crush those fears, you can live and die in a way that ensures immortality.
