Quick thought for the day
Contemplate for but a moment, that while numerous murderous gunmen and hijackers who self identify as warriors of Islam, killing tens of hundreds of people (if not thousands), specifically do NOT represent Islam when they commit their heinous crimes; one lone whack job with questionable social practices that are hardly deemed Christian, by anyone, ( peeping tom, animal cruelty, rape, spousal abuse, philanderer, adulterer and more) and holding an unquestionably warped view of what it is to be a Christian altogether, DOES in fact represent American Christians.
You may now resume your day, pondering the fairly obvious double standard, assuming you’re not a progressive liberal, or the President of the United States (but I repeat myself) who won’t be able to see one at all.
UPDATE: DEC 3 – Post San Bernadino
Now that some smoke has cleared and the progressive left has, you know, some actual details on the shooting in San Bernadino:
Given the spew of rhetorical bull that started 5 minutes after the 1st reports of the shooting I have some questions.
Would it still be safe to assume that Sayed Farook is a “white” gun toting American Christian motivated and inflamed by rhetorical bombast against abortion clinics to take his wife and launch an assault on his fellow county workers having a party in a building a couple miles away from the Planned Parenthood building?
Can someone ask President Obama and former Secretary of State, felony violator of her oaths to properly handle secret government materials, Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton; would it still solve all our problems if we closed up that mystical ‘gun show loophole’ that allows Right Wing Christian maniacs to buy weapons and shoot up the country?
Perhaps Secretary of State Kerry can explain again how it was probably motivated by justifiable anger over cartoons of the prophet Muhammad?
Should we assume that it was all spontaneous, based on Sayed getting into an argument or being thrown out of the party and going home to get the mock pipe bomb, weapons, vests and wife (and their GoPro cameras to record the special moments)….to come back for the attack?
Is it really just another case of work place violence, like Fort Hood?
When will the idiot left and their media morons stop jumping to conclusions before the damn brass has stopped bouncing on the ground at the killers feet?
How many times do they have to look like complete fools in their desperate wish for the perfect Tea Party, Republican, Christian, middle class traditional American Ozzie and Harriett, straight, white male, mentally balanced, MACHINE GUN toting shooter before they hold their damned tongues long enough to get some actual details and facts before they start spouting off and BLAMING THEM when they don’t have any real clue about the shooters, their motives, or the freaking weapons used?
Enough with my snarky, and wasted on progressive leftist morons, anger –
I have some questions for the armed America side too.
Full disclosure I was one of the record setting 185,000+ background checks on Black Friday this year, purchasing a ‘military style’ carbine that was intended by the manufacturer to appeal to law enforcement, 32 round magazines and all.
and it ain’t the only high capacity, high caliber semi-automatic weapon I own.
ARE we really going to solve this problem by arming everyone, by eliminating gun free zones? Neither of those things will happen of course.. I do believe an armed person in the room certainly stands a better chance of putting a stop to it than someone armed with a paper plate of turkey, potatoes and gravy. But pandering politicians on the right claiming that’s the answer need to shut up when this stuff happens, this ISN’T the time.
WAS this a function of the shooters religion? Is it not just it too easy to assume that a non-muslim couple could not have done this for some reason?
IS there actually an answer, or is this just something we’re going to have to endure until we get a bunch of other needful things back under our control, like a sane honest government and ALL that that entails.
Honest dialog between honest opposing sides without this ‘win at all costs, screw you and screw your rights’ mentally that seems to have developed.
Perhaps it is needful for a recognition for many amongst us that no matter how hard we try, no matter how much control we hand over to someone else for our lives, no matter who we hire, appoint, elect, no matter how many stupid useless laws we pass that we just cannot achieve perfect safety.
It’s was depressing as all hell yesterday afternoon and I want my damn country back.
