Jihadists Discover Texas is Not Paris

Look, soldiers of Allah: Texas is not, I repeat, IS NOT, France. If you expected a similar situation as the Charlie Hebdo massacre, you were sorely mistaken. Texans love guns. Texans love shooting guns. Texans do not care for jihadists. THEY WILL KILL YOU.

Jihadists Discover Texas is Not Paris:

Combat Shooter's Handbook(CNN)It wasn’t a fair fight.

On one side, you had two men in body armor, toting assault rifles and showing every willingness to open fire now and count their victims later. On the other, you had a security officer — a traffic officer by day — with a pistol.

Authorities have not released the name of the overmatched Garland, Texas, police officer who stopped a pair of gunmen Sunday night outside that city’s Curtis Culwell Center, where people had gathered at an event featuring controversial cartoons of the Muslim Prophet Mohammed. But they have described what he did, actions that could be characterized as equal parts skillful, heroic and miraculous.

In any regular scenario, going up against two guys armed with assault rifles armed only with a pistol would be a suicide mission. Luckily, these are incompetent jihadists we’re talking about, but still. Word is, the cop was on a cigarette break. Ergo, smoking saves lives.

IA Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual instantly, I knew this was some sort of crazed terrorist attack. But there always has to be the pearl-clutchers telling us all to wait, fervently hoping that it was some crazy right-winger pissed off about chem trails, 9/11, the federal reserve, or immigrants. Like an idiot, as soon as I heard the news, I had to scan through that virtual wretched hive of scum and villainy known as Twitter (note the timestamp-before anyone identified the shooters):

@BKactual Oh, the confirmed who the shooters were & their religious beliefs? Excellent! Link me up pls

@Bohemianmoon See, I have a brain and can use logic and reason.

Of course, the old hippy blocked me before I could give her the old “I told you so” tweet.

But here we go with the media hand-wringing. Check out the headline the Washington Post had up a few days after the attack: “Event organizer offers no apology after thwarted attack in Texas.”

Unbelievable. Why don’t they just write the headline,  “Rape Victim wearing short skirt should have known better” the next time they cover a sexual assault story?

One wonders if the Washington Post and other outlets would write similar headlines about the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a homosexual drag queen group that dresses in nun’s outfits and bestows names on each other like, “Sister Anita Blowjob,” and “Sister Gloriana Rimjob.”

They even hold an event every year called, “The Hunky Jesus” contest, held on EASTER, of all times. Not only are they tolerated, they are celebrated by the local San Francisco papers and have many Chapters across the U.S.

Now let us indulge in a hypothetical: Suppose a couple of nutty Christian rednecks had loaded up their assault rifles, picked up a couple of sixers, road-tripped over to San Francisco, and started shooting up old hunky Jesus and Gloriana Rimjob. Ya think we’d see the same reaction from our pathetic media?

Would Chris Matthews (supposedly a good Catholic,) hyperventilate about the “sisters” like he did about the AFDI, the group that held the “draw Mohammed” contest? Will Obama spokes-hack Josh Ernest be asked about the “appropriateness” of the events this group puts on? Will a New York Times reporter tweet about why anyone would put on an event like this? Will newspapers (!!!!) openly editorialize about adding limits to speech?

Will a major journalism organization hold an awards ceremony for Pamela Geller to laud her courage? Will an idiotic college professor tweet repeatedly condemning the event? Would the Garland Mayor be excoriating Pamela Geller for “inviting an incendiary reaction?”   I could easily name dozens more, but I think you get my point.

The answer to all of these is a resounding “no,” of course. Because these people only believe in the freedom of speech that they agree with, which, of course, is not believing in freedom of speech at all. Remember, when someone says, “I believe in freedom of speech, but…,” just discount everything they say before the “but.”

You may not like these events. You may despise the gay provocateurs, you may despise the muslim-baiting provocateurs. So counter them with more speech, or, if all else fails, just ignore them. But you don’t get to shut people up because YOU don’t happen to like what they are saying or doing. We have the right to be assholes.

The shooting shows precisely why this sort of speech is necessary. Think of it as an act of defiance. The best way to wound a fascist, medieval ideology is through mockery. This is standing up and saying, “We will not be cowed; we will not be bullied. This is America, where we can say whatever the hell we want. And if you want to come here, you either get with the program or take your ass back to whatever marxist theocratic pit you came from.”

In other countries, there is no freedom of speech. England, the land that gave us the Magna Carta, routinely jails people now for “misuse” of social media, including hashtags. The marxist Labour candidate for prime minister is openly calling for critics of Islam to be jailed. JAILED!!

I’ve written at length about this before. The first amendment is under attack constantly. There are plenty of Americans who believe that any speech that hurts someone’s feelings should be outlawed. In a recent poll, over half of self-identified democrats said that “hate speech” should be criminalized. These people would describe themselves as “liberal,” a term that used to be synonymous with a fanatical devotion to speech and publishing freedoms. I’m sure it’s actually far more than that. Go to any university in America, and ask the kids their if they think “hate speech” should be criminalized. Pretty sure it would be an overwhelming “yes.”

Freedom of speech is too often associated solely with the Constitution. While it’s fantastic that we have that remarkable document, it is not something that should be held up as the only shield. More importantly, the concepts of freedom of speech needs to be alive in the hearts and minds of men, and it is DYING. Sadly, the freedom to be free from criticism and offense are taking precedent over the freedom to speak one’s mind.

And that spells doom for a free society.

It is the story of the betrayal of an entire generation of Americans and particularly the 40% (of the military aged males) of that generation that fought the Vietnam war.

We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
