This rant will cover a lot of ground.
First, on the subject of hysterical blindness mentioned in the last rant, apparently Obama isn’t the only democrat with the problem. The legend in her own mind Sen. Barbara Boxer of California, said the DAY AFTER the Islamist terrorist attack in San Bernardino that sensible gun laws work and cited those very effective gun laws in California as proof. Say what? The shootings were in California! Gov. Jerry Brown tried to blame Arizona and Nevada for having loose gun laws so people can buy them there and then sneak them into California. He had to walk that back because the guns involved were all bought legally in California, but you have to love the way socialists try to lie their way out of their own incompetence.
France has very strict gun laws and has suffered at least 2 terrorist attacks this year, including the 129 people in Paris last month. Which of course is where Obama said that these mass shootings don’t occur outside the U.S.
I saw an article today with the statistics showing that the gun homicide rates in the states with the strictest gun control laws are twice as high as the gun homicide rates in states with the least onerous gun laws and the most gun owners.
So why does the obfuscator-in-chief always turn Islamist terrorism into a gun control issue and a plea for respect for Islam? Could it be that he’s a front man for Islam? Lest you forget, his father was Muslim and he attended a Muslim school in his younger years and as I recall, he even made a point – maybe in his infamous Cairo speech – of saying how beautiful it was to recite the morning Islamic prayers. [Correction: He said it about reciting the evening prayers at sunset and it was in his autobiography.] When Jews or Catholics or other Christians are massacred by Islamists, he never says anything and like Kerry and Clinton implies that somehow it was at least partially the fault of the individuals massacred.
And I don’t know about you but I am sick and tired of being told that we should all walk on eggshells because everything anyone does or says will be a recruiting tool for ISIS. This is just more covering up for Islam by Obama and his clueless clones including Hillary, who made a ridiculous attempt to explain why we can’t call it radical Islamist terrorism on Sunday – it would also be a recruiting tool for ISIS. You want to put an end to ISIS recruiting? Put an end to ISIS!!
And in point of fact, while I’m on the subject of this “massive wave” of supposed Islamaphobia, the statistics in fact show that Jews are more than twice as likely as Muslims to be subjected to hate crimes in the U.S.. Why isn’t Obama ever upset or outraged by anti-Semitism? And why does he always favor Palestinians over Israelis?
And why are they always telling us about how climate change and the drought in Syria are responsible for terrorism? The Middle East is a desert and the terrorists aren’t poor starving homeless beggars – at least not the ones who are killing people in this country. The couple in California were better off than the average American. The Boston Marathon bombers weren’t poor and neither were the 911 terrorists.
Speaking of climate change, check out this link for an article on the death of Maurice Strong, the socialist who hijacked the environmental movement to turn it into his vision for a UN controlled world socialist order. https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2015/12/06/the-death-of-maurice-strong/.
Lastly for today [Actually the best thing for today would have been an article by Kevin Williamson which I read this morning and planned to link to for your enjoyment but it has disappeared from the web for the moment. It was a real rant about the lazy, bloated, worthlessness of government at all levels. I always enjoy his stuff but this time he was definitely more over the top than usual. It sounded like something I would write with a buzz on. Maybe that’s why it disappeared. In the light of day, he may have had second thoughts. I seldom have first thoughts so that’s not my problem.] anyway, I saw a piece talking about ‘moderate’ Islam over the weekend and it was reporting about a case in our ‘good’ ally Saudi Arabia where a woman was sentenced to be stoned to death for adultery. Her lover got 100 lashes, but she was to be buried up to her chest and then men would get in a circle around her and begin slowly throwing rocks at her head until she eventually dies. There was some comment that maybe there would be an appeal and it might not happen. But the point is this is non-radical, moderate Islam. Yeah let’s bring that here!
