This is Exactly What They Want

After the murder of 5 police officers in Dallas on Thursday night, I’ve been trying to collect my thoughts into a coherent description of the situation we find ourselves in. The conclusion I’ve come to is that both sides of this fiasco have been well-orchestrated by those who seek to destroy this country and the principles of “Liberty” and “Rule of Law” it was founded on.

When Barack Obama said he wanted to “fundamentally change” the United States, he wasn’t just speaking for himself but for many different groups who absolutely hate what we stand for. We have been fighting a culture war since the Civil War, a war which became worse after the Progressive movement of the early 1900’s and worse again after the Civil Rights movement was co-opted and began being used to destroy the Black family and eventually return us all to slavery.

Rather than uniting us all under the banner of liberty, they have turned every individual group into grievance mongers. The destruction of the Black family has created legions of fatherless thugs who lie, steal, cheat and kill all because they were never held to any higher standards and have been taught that it is all “part of the game”. They see anyone who gets in their way as the enemy and because of our destruction of the school system, lack the education to understand their situation or pull themselves out of it. They are modern Neanderthals, not because of their race, but because the principles we have taught them cannot create anything else.

The police, much like the Black family, were once an honorable institution. Police were taught not only the “letter of the law” but the “spirit of the law”. They understood that the Rule of Law meant everything that applied to the citizens also applied to them. The ones who didn’t understand this were kept in check by the standards set for them by their community and the watchful eye of their brother Officers.

The past 100 years has seen both the destruction of the family unit and the corruption of our law enforcement agencies. When young Black thugs cause problems for the rest of society, the natural reaction of the police is to go out and crack some skulls. When law enforcement agencies stop enforcing standards and allow their Officers to beat on or kill people for nonsense reasons what do you expect is going to happen between these two groups?

The Black Lives Matter movement is so blinded by their own racism and hatred of police their only response is, “pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon”. The police on the other hand play right into this because instead of charging their corrupt Officers with a crime, as would happen to anyone else, they hide behind the “thin blue line” and absolve themselves with an internal investigation. Meanwhile, we all choose sides based upon our preconceived notions and ignore the fact that all of this hatred has been caused by evil from both sides. It’s like a husband and wife who are both massively overweight, yet each continues to eat voraciously while wondering why the other person can’t get their shit together.

All I keep hearing from the Black side of the equation is excuses why it’s the police’s or the white man’s fault they act like they do. From the police side it’s nothing but blaming the Blacks for acting like thugs and saying they would treat them fairly if only they could behave. This never ending spiral of blame has now spilled over to every other subsection of our society. Each racial group blames the others and the police corruption ends up affecting not only the God-given rights of Blacks, but every other citizen. We have destroyed the foundations of a moral society and can’t for the life of us figure out why it’s all going wrong. Albert Einstein once said the definition of insanity was doing the same thing over and over again yet expecting a different outcome.

Until moral standards of conduct are returned to both sides of the equation, standards which must be enforced by each and every one of us without consideration of race or position, the war will only continue to get worse. Given the speed with which things are progressing this summer I fear it is already too late. If you really want to fix things, make sure your own house is in order. To all parents, raise your children to be responsible for themselves and hold them to it. If they act like thugs it is your fault. To the police, look at the immoral laws you are enforcing and the unacceptable tactics you are using. Go to your commanders and your legislators and let them know that you will no longer be their attack dog.

What you see happening now is that fundamental change Barack Obama was talking about. It’s been coming for a long time, but only now are they starting to admit it. Stop playing their game, it’s exactly what they want.

Gun Control is a Steady Hand

A local resident sent a letter to the editor of The World Newspaper. They ended up not only publishing it online but put it on the front page as well. The stupid is strong with this one:

As the line from the movie says, “you never go full retard”. Here is my response:

In her recent letter to the editor, Sharon Ramirez laments the fact that after yet another massacre, the Republican Party refuse to pass gun control.

She then claims that the gun dealer who sold to Omar Mateen should accept responsibility. All the Progressives insist that we need thorough background checks for all guns sales, yet when a gun dealer completes the required background check (which the suspect passed) she believes the incident is somehow their fault?

Later on she claims that Middle Easterners who travel back and forth between their country and ours should not be allowed to buy “weapons of mass destruction”. Perhaps she has forgotten the principles of “due process” and “rule of law” (or she never knew them in the first place). If a person is otherwise legally allowed to own a firearm, traveling to the Middle East may be a very good reason to keep an eye on them, but it does not arise to the level of “probable cause” and it is most certainly not enough to deny them their Constitutional rights.

Finally, she says she can’t imagine how a gun dealer could sell weapons to a Middle Eastern man. She has always been a little unhinged but now she has become a full blown racist. Sharon, do you realize that there are plenty of people from the Middle East that are not Muslims? Have you ever seen a native Jew with dark skin? Have you heard of the Maronite Christians, who are Arabic-speaking Catholics?

None of these people have ever committed a terrorist attack and when they immigrate to our country deserve the same rights and protections as the rest of us. You would deny them this because you are unable to tell the sheep from the wolves. You are also unable to differentiate between an inanimate object and the evil in the hearts of some men.

I would also like to point out that the Bataclan attack in Paris last year was carried out with AK-47 rifles and improvised explosives, both of which are completely illegal in France. Despite having some of the strictest gun laws in Europe and being surrounded by countries with similar laws, these terrorists were still able to obtain these items. Gun control DOES NOT work.
