Free Markets, Free People

A nation gone mad

I’m still sitting here shaking my head as I watch and listen to the left react to the Orlando massacre.

If you simply read their screeds you’d have concluded by now that it was the work of a right-wing Christian (or just a plain old “toxic male”) with an AR-15 instead of a Sig wielding Muslim who had pledged allegiance to ISIS in a 911 call prior to the massacre and was a registered Democrat.

In fact, the AR-15 meme has taken on a life of its own with such luminaries of the left as lyin’ Michael Moore and domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and some wimpy NYT metrosexual calling for its ban.  On what grounds one wonders, but hey, they’re leftists – fantasy is their business if it helps them move their agenda one inch further to fruition. Ignore the facts, full speed ahead.  Moore even made up stuff about the round(s) the AR-15 fires claiming they are banned by the Geneva Conventions.  Uh, no.  Not even close.  Pure fiction.

Sally Kohn, a CNN contributor, went on a bigoted anti-Christian rant that attempted, in however a tortured manner, to make a moral equivalence between Christian disapproval of homosexuality and Islam’s death sentence for homosexuals.

Milo Yiannopoulos, a right-wing gay activist, explains the difference for those who lack the ability to discern it:

There are eleven Muslim countries in which I could be killed for being a homosexual. The state penalty is death. One hundred million people live in country where the penalty for homosexuality is death. This is not radical Islam. This is mainstream Muslim society.

And this isn’t some hazy made-up claim like Michael Moore’s, it’s their law.  Guess who is taking political donations from those countries?

Instead of facing the truth of Orlando, the left, as usual, has chosen to divert and pretend the problem is on the right.  That way, their agenda remains viable and they don’t have to confront nasty little ideological conflicts they’re trying so damn hard to avoid:

“Look what’s happening in Sweden. Look what’s happening anywhere in Germany, anywhere there are large influxes of a Muslim population. Things don’t end well for women and gays. The left has got to make a decision. Either they want female emancipation and it wants gay rights or it wants Islam. It’s got to pick.”

But, at this point, it refuses to do so.  It is more afraid of being called Islamaphobic than it is of condemning a religion/ideology that throws gays off of buildings, burns them or hangs them and treats women as chattel.

That’s what the Sally Kohns, Michael Moores and Bill Ayers of the left should be doing.  Instead they’re after a weapon that wasn’t even used in the massacre and a Constitutional amendment that gives us the freedom to defend ourselves.

Mad.

  • All but forgotten is that it has been the right that has been warning *for* *years* about the danger that Mohammedism poses for homosexuals.

    In any case, on closer inspection, it looks as though Omar Mateen was himself homosexual and was quite comfortable at the Orlando gay night club. Quite at odds with the impression left by his father, I think it was, who said that Omar had lost it on seeing two men kissing.

    My take on it at this hour is that he didn’t necessarily see homosexuals in that club. But he definitely saw a high body count. Very similar to Farook killing his co-workers at the Christmas party in San Bernardino. Distilled down that’s a doctrine that goes, “kill who you know in a place you know.” Mateen had a perfect grasp of the tactical situation in that bar, when and where to start shooting and how to keep mowing the crowd down.

    As for the Left on this, they’re mental cases to begin with and a contradictory situation like the Orlando shooting makes it worse. They reduce themselves to inflamed brain stems. Some of them stay that way.

    • When I write “didn’t necessarily see homosexuals in that club,” I mean that he didn’t necessarily see homosexuals per se as the target. He certainly knew the club goers were gay — he was one of them. The important part was that he was going to kill people he knew, or was at least familiar with from frequenting the place.

      • He knew he would be able to do what he did without much interruption..

  • Do you understand this is why when something like this happens to (mainly) people of the left I just don’t give a crap?

    It’s not even a terror attack according to the left. So my interest in this- avenging it, preventing future occurrences- is now at zero.

    Move along, nothing to see here. Go tell ISIS that #love wins and enjoy your drop from the rooftop

    • If only the people in Syria understood that all they need to do to stop ISIS is establish Muslim outreach, and build bridges through dialogue to the Muslim elements of their society.

  • You can sum up the left’s philosophy about violence and weapons as “Everyone we don’t like should disarm themselves, and then just take whatever we and our allies decide to inflict on you.”

    This was their position on nuclear weapons during the Cold War. This was been their position concerning our response to 9/11. This has been their response to guns my whole life.

    Note that their allies include any agents of the government, any collectivist institutions such as environmentalist groups, any foreign powers or influences who fight enlightenment based principles in the US, any terrorists who commit acts that further their agenda, and any SJW useful idiots who scream loud enough about imagined slights to generate movement to the left.

    All of them are supposed to have the untrammeled ability to do to us whatever they like, and we are supposed to just roll over and take it.

    • Oh come on Billy. You paranoid right-wing nut. It’s not like the Govt would ever do anything you’d need to worry about. It can never happen. Just ask Lois Lerner. Or the Attorneys General who filed the climate change subpoena. Or those who led the “John Doe” probe in WI. Or the sizeable contingent on the left who want to criminalize dissent from the climate change orthodoxy. Nope, never ever gonna happen here.

      • What? Wouldn’t do anything I need to worry about?
        The government?

        Would that be the organization that rounded up all those Japanese and Japanese Americans and put them in detainment facilities?
        That did all those horrid things to the Native Americans?
        That took the Southwest and West Coast away from the poor Mexicans?
        That did a syphilis “study” on African Americans?
        That used slaves to build the White House?

        THAT government?
        Go on wit ya!

  • “”What unites all of these shootings, from Littleton to Aurora, to Newtown, to Blacksburg to Orlando, is that the weapon of choice in every case is a gun — often a very powerful gun, an AR-15 or an AR-15-style gun that was designed for the military, for law enforcement to kill as many people as quickly as possible,” Murphy said.”

    “was designed…for law enforcement….to kill as many people as quickly as possible.”

    Thanks for being honest about precisely why the rest of us need to access to them Senator Murphy, you idiot.

    • Speaking of idiot Senators:

      “Due process is what’s killing us right now,” said Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) on Morning Joe today

      • If they think it’s killing them now, they should try running things without it for about a month till the red neck backwater outside Washington rabble get good and tired of it.

        • I say we use Congress – specifically this guy and his family- as the test case.

          • All we need is for some other Senator to stand on the Senate floor and say he heard someone say that Manchin is a pedophilic necrophiliac who hasn’t paid his taxes in 20 years.

            That ought to get the “no due process” ball rolling in some Federal organizations don’t you think?

          • We don’t even need to do that much. Just “encourage” the citizenry to inform on him. And we can also create some special police that are very hush-hush to keep an eye on him. He wouldn’t know who they were, or where they are. They would be a secret!

          • You’re right, according to the bill they tried for in 2013, all it takes is for someone to call and say he’s a terrorist and they have to consider him

            I’d say wanting to subvert the Constitution of the US qualifies.

    • I understand that Gretchen Carlson, one of the Fox Network’s stable of pretty blondes, is ALSO on the “ban the AR-15” kick.

      This is confusing to me, since I’ve _also_ read that the barking Muslim who did the shooting DID NOT USE an AR-15.

      Makes as much sense as the thing with painkiller meds: because some people are using opioids to get high — quelle horreur!! — Our Beelovvid Gummint has reacted by making it harder for Grandma to get the meds she needs to cope with her cancer, or neuralgia, or whatever other medical condition she’s got.

      I can deduce the following algorithm from FedGov’s actions:
      Step 1 : Identify some new problem with rule-breakers
      Step 2 : Ignore that rule-breakers BREAK THE RULES
      Step 3 : Write new rules that punish the innocent
      Step 4 : PAY BONUSES!!!
      Step 5 : Go to Step 1

  • Evil white Christian Republican men are so evil that not only do their evil mind-control rays prevent non-Asian minorities from achieving, but also cause Gay Muslim Democrats to go on shooting rampages!

  • I’ve been sorta busy, but I look in on this crazy stuff now and again, but today seems to be one of the most insane days in months,

    Latino activists, including a Mizzou official, scolded the mostly white gathering for ignoring racial issues. That led one attendee to fume on Facebook that the organizers had invented a “race issue” out of a “homophobic attack” by gunman Omar Mateen.

    Setting aside the “race” part for a moment .. if Omar Mateen was gay, a “homophobic attack” would mean he is attacking “straight” folks ?

    Meanwhile, we have Senators and Congresscritters falling all over themselves to do “the un-Constitutional.”

    “There’s not a Democrat or a Republican that wants to allow a terrorist to get a gun. We all agree,” Manchin said. “How much due process and redressing are we going to allow? How can a person get out of a system they may be put in erroneously? How much caution should we take that you had probably cause. I can tell you to get to the level where the FBI came and took a look at you, there’s more than probable cause.”

    That last sentence should give all Democrats pause.

    • Including the presidential nominee *nudge nudge wink wink*

    • But won’t because they’ve been driving the NSA, FBI, DHS, EPA, DOJ, Secret Service and IRS around like their personal tanks for the last 7 years.
      They don’t think that can end.

      Rest assured if “TRUMP!” they’ll suddenly see it all very differently.

      • As noted in some-other-blog’s comments:

        Ya want the MSM to start doing investigative journalism again, instead of writing swooning paeans to pants-creases? Ya want hard-hitting analysis of the Administration, and its trade and foreign policy initiatives? And, do you want all those wimpy Republicans in Congress to grow a spine and stand united against Presidential over-reach? … Just elect Donald Trump – ALL the Democrats, ALL the Republicans, and ALL the news organizations will discover a newfound respect for Adversarial Engagement.

  • Besides, Islamic terrorists don’t need AR-15’s (or due process….)

    A crowd and a pile of rocks will do nicely.

    Was it the sound of rocks thudding against bodies; or the Muslim call to prayer that Obama said was the sweetest sound he knew?

  • One wonders if our new gun control will mean we can no longer chew our pop tarts into the shape of pistols, or make “gun hands” with our fingers without being put on a government watch list.

    Because we can expel kids from school for making pointy fingers, no problem, but keep track of an Islamic believer who admitted to the FBI he hoped to martyr himself? nah.
    He’s Islamic, they all say that at some time or other I guess, don’t sweat it!!! sheesh! So intense!

    But those kids, do they end up on a watch list?
    Probably little Republicans just waiting for a chance to spread their climate of hatred there in the 1st grade, they need watchin.

  • Really though, wouldn’t we all be safer arming ourselves with umbrellas and keys?

    What determined, possibly armed assailant wouldn’t be stopped by a properly wielded umbrella?

  • Is it Madness, really? I wonder. After all, it’s always worked for them in the past

    What it is more correctly is a lack of principle. Pragmatists you see can say anything they want so long as it works

  • It’s a Sunni Shi’ite thing, and Hillary’s role in setting up this monstrosity should not be forgotten.
