The Orlando Massacre Had Nothing To Do With Islam

I’m hearing it all over again now. Obama has to “say Islam”. We have to admit we are “at war with Islam”. Trump sounding off on his immigration policies. Obama sounding off on gun laws.

I’m not into laws, as you all know, but one law that would be unjust but actually would stop all shootings in gay bars tomorrow would be to require every worker at every gay bar to be armed and trained in firing a gun. If potential shooters know that all gay bar workers must carry guns by law, there will be no shootings. I only emphasize gay bars here because they are specific targets unfortunately. As we saw this week.

I’m not saying a law should be passed requiring gay bar employees to all be armed. I’m just saying if we want to get in to the whole government laws discussion about what government could do to stop shootings, it could simply do that, and that would be the end of it. It would be the end of many gay bars as well that would close up for economic or ideological reasons (like “I don’t carry guns because it’s immoral blah blah”), but those gay bars that remain would never, ever be targeted again.

The difference between this kind of law and a law to “require background checks for all gun purchasers” and other such nonsense is that the former actually attempts to solve a problem where the latter is simply a thrill for power seekers who get to check into backgrounds and act all powerful and into people’s lives and telling their wives over dinner.

“Honey, listen to this. I just got back from work from the Federal Background Checking Bureau and I checked into 20 guys’ backgrounds and found they were all cross dressers. Ha ha! I get to check backgrounds.”

Besides, this guy’s background was checked and the guy was even screened and no government worker did anything about it. Backgound checks will accomplish nothing other than giving background checking power hungry government bureaucrats something else to massage their fantasies with.

But as for Islam. The shooter was a depressed loner who hated his life and had possible coming-out issues and hated himself for it. So he killed gay people. It wasn’t even an anti-gay rampage because the guy himself was probably gay. If kikes can call themselves kikes and it’s not “hate speech” then gays can kill gays and it’s not a “hate crime”. Same warped logic.

Note to new readers: I’m not saying that murdering 50 people is not a crime. It is absolutely a crime and if there’s a hell this guy is there. I’m saying that the term “hate crime” is stupid. 

It’s just a regular crime. It happens all the time now. Mass shootings are not new. He happened to believe in Islamic tenets, whatever those are. But without those tenets he would have shot people anyway just like other unstable depressed self-hating murderers do. He was a violent man with a history of violence so he committed violence. Islam is irrelevant. Violent Muslims use Islam violently. Violent Christians use Christianity violently. Violent Jews use Judaism violently. Violent people are violent regardless of the excuses they make for it, be they religious or secular or based on Dr. Seuss books.

And don’t tell me Jews don’t commit mass shootings. They do. It’s just Israeli government-sanctioned mass shootings on a pretext of self defense when it’s really just politicians throwing 18 year olds at targets as cannon fodder to increase their vote count without solving any defense problem whatsoever. Christians commit many more mass shootings than Muslims, but they use much bigger bullets called bombs and drop them from much bigger guns called drones, on a sacred religious pretext of “self defense” and the tenet of American exceptionalism, rather than the sacred religious pretext of jihad and the tenet of Alahu Akbar.

It’s all the same evil and there is nothing unique about Islam that inspires violence any more than “American Exceptionalism” inspires violence, and that it certainly does.

Besides, let’s say I concede the it’s all “Islam’s fault” and we have to “fight Islam”. How exactly do you do that? Round up all muslims in the world and kill them? Bomb every Mosque? Spend another $3 trillion bombing more Muslim countries? As much as I hear people insisting that we are “at war with Islam” nobody ever tells me what should be done about it. Is there evil Muslim slime that you can play music to and then it becomes good slime and you can shoot that good slime at every Mosque and it becomes nonviolent? Or am I way too deep into Ghostbusters II metaphors?

Governments have already bankrupted themselves “fighting Islam”. It’s much cheaper just for private people or institutions or gay bars to simply arm themselves and stop this from happening.

Terrorism is only when Muslims kill people, otherwise it’s just crime

After the shooting rampage yesterday in California, I saw a tweet from CNN quoting the FBI as saying that it is “unclear if the shooting was terrorism.”

I always ask the “war or terror” people what terrorism is. They usually say violence for political gain. Well, if that’s true, then everything the US Army does is “terrorism”.

The assertion that it is “unclear if the shooting was terrorism” proves one thing though. That the real meaning of “terrorism” is when Muslims murder people for religious reasons. Otherwise, it’s just “crime”.

More stabbings, more death, less feeling

Another death today, a 21 year old woman standing by a bus stop stabbed. The saddest thing is I’m become numb to all this.

It’s hard for me to feel outrage or expectation or anything but sadness. Most people who believe in the government as protector can channel their rage to the cartel that is supposed to be their protection racket. They can rouse their emotions by protest and articles and all the yelling and venting that in the end does nothing anyway.

But I have no expectations from them to protect me, or anyone else, so there’s nobody I can yell at.

I cannot be mad at the government or demand that they do anything, because I know that if I do demand they do “something” it will only be a power grab and in the end will only make things worse.

All I can advise anyone to do is arm yourselves and learn self defense, because nobody is protecting you but God.

That, and repent, pray, and give charity. Perhaps it will avert the severity of the decree.

What you can actually do that will help is join Zehut now.

The State is not going to disappear, but there is one minarchist out there who wants to shrink it as much as possible, and actually has a decent plan to end this murder. Pay the Arabs to leave.

SARCASM Jewish Worshipers Provoked Arab Murderers By Praying for Rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem

Five are now dead in Har Nof including Rosh Yeshiva Moshe Twersky. No one in the Yeshiva was armed at the time. The murderers were killed so at least Netanyahu won’t be able to exchange them in the next good will gesture.

Baruch Dayan Emet. But on to the sarcastic part.

Observant Jews generally pray the morning service every day of their lives. We call it davening shacharis. When halachically observant Jews daven shacharis, they wear these things called phylacteries, or tefillin, on their arm and head. Inside the tefillin are sections from the Torah about, among other things, what we are supposed to do after we settle in Israel. Exodus 13:11, right on our heads:

And it will come to pass when the Lord will bring you into the land of the Canaanite, as He swore to you and to your forefathers, and He has given it to you,

Provocation right there. We should all stop wearing tefillin, as it’s insulting to the Arabs.

We also generally ask for the rebuilding of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, Binyan Beis HaMikdash in our parlance, and we all say that we want it built right on the Dome of the Rock. We say this several times a day. Clearly this is a call for a holy war against Muslims and must be stopped. Big provocation:

May it be your will God and God of our Fathers, that the Temple be rebuilt speedily in our lifetimes, and give us a part in your Torah, and there we will worship you in awe as we did in the old days and in years past.

Right wing extremism clearly. That line should be forcibly censored by the government from ever being said by anyone lest they provoke a religious war. Praying like this should not only be illegal on the Temple Mount itself, but anywhere and everywhere. After all, just because one has the right to pray for whatever he likes, does not mean that one should exercise that right indiscriminately and risk a holy warI hear this claim all the time in the statist media.

Do we expect the Arabs to just simply do nothing while we pray for the destruction of the Dome of the Rock? Clearly not. We’re asking for it unless we all stop praying for the rebuilding of the Temple immediately.
