What, no riots?
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, April 03, 2007

Burlington Township, PA:
The scenario has played out in real life across America: Gunfire echoes through a school and students are held hostage.

But police, faculty and staff lived out their own make-believe version yesterday of just such a tragedy at Burlington Township High School, complete with Kevlar-clad officers, armed suspects and students portraying the wounded and dead.

The purpose of the drill was to test the reactions of police, faculty and administration.
Good. It's good to practice something which could happen. Ah, but then:
Two Burlington Township police detectives portrayed the gunmen. Investigators described them as members of a right-wing fundamentalist group called the “New Crusaders” who don't believe in separation of church and state. The mock gunmen went to the school seeking justice because the daughter of one had been expelled for praying before class.
Of course. Because if we'd have played like they were "New Jihadis" well, CAIR would have been camped on their doorstep and the Muslim community would have been suitably offended and quite possibly made a stink, even.

Christians?

Screw 'em.

[As an aside, it most likely would have been more realistic if they'd have had the two cops play a couple of teenage loners who have access to guns and live in a fantasy world of violence and escapism ... but that would have the PTA on their doorstep. Like I said ... Christians, much safer.]

I tend to think that a "Beslan school massacre" will eventually happen here.

The people who will do this don’t believe in seperation of church and state. But they won’t call themselves "Crusaders".

Christians and White Men are the only ones left that are not protected by Political Correctness. That’s as it should be, everyone knows all the worlds evil has been caused by White Male Christians. They are so evil they don’t deserve protections afforded their victims around the world. If the world is every to be truly Politically Correct some what must be found to rid society of these parasites.

From Investors Business Daily:
Homeland Security: As Democrats hold more silly hearings to embarrass Republicans, the FBI is warning local police to be alert for Muslim extremists hijacking school buses. Reality check, please.
Of the many tragedies—Bali, Madrid, London, etc—Beslan is the one that I believe to be the most tragic.
I think this school received this warning but just couldn’t bring themselves to label it honestly. By the way, didn’t this happen to Micheal Chrichton?
Well, as long as they’re prepared for any eventuality.

If these are the putzes protecting the kids, they’re probably better off being left unprotected.

Christians (and Jews to a much lesser extent) are allowing institutions to take the wrong lesson. Violence is rewarded (Islam) and relative passiveness (Christianty) gets you stupidity like this. (And I’m just waiting for some idiot to try to compare the Islam Cartoons situation with the Marcotte bruhaha). Admittedly it is minor in the scheme of things, but it is also incredibly illustrative also.

One day there really will be a "New Crusaders" group who will do something like kill the "artist" who made a Chocolate Jesus. Or issue a serious death threat against a New York Times writer, etc.

Then we’ll see what’s really what.

Christians?

Screw ’em.
One of the elements of taboos is that they generally contain an element of dangerous truth, that they’re the first step in some possible social upset.

If something is patently absurd, it’s not taboo—everyone laughs at the idiot and walks away.

Hence, hostile Christian takeovers: absurd. Hostile Islamic takeovers: taboo.

I think Douglas Black has it exactly correct, taboo to inflame Muslims (there is more than a hint of truth to them inacting violence), ok to try and inflame Christians (no worry of violence being rendered).

Perhaps it has to do with the Christian God inviting non-believers to the fold , and the Islam God demanding adherence (submission?) or else suffer dire consequences.

Where’s Erb or Andrew Sullivan or Rosie O’Donnell to note that right wing Christian Theocrat Fascists really are like that?

As a Christian, I am forced to unleash my religion’s most powerful weapon to exact revenge for this slight:

I forgive them.
