Some random thoughts after yesterday’s terror attack in NYC (originally shared as a Facebook post)
I was at a family member’s house last night and they had the news on about the terrorist attack in New York. At first they were watching Fox but at one point, switched it to CNN. Listening the to cop bashing, anti-gun leftist nitwits on CNN blathering on and on was mind numbing. The thought processes demonstrated by the hosts was like listening to children attempting to profoundly discus an alien invasion (extra-terrestrial, not illegals).
First of all, they kept asking different people “how can we prevent incidents like this?” Really? Are you people that freaking idiotic? You absolutely cannot ever prevent an incident like this. It was a solo guy in a truck who decided to run over people. No matter what his motivation is, whether it be radical Islam like in this case or some crazy jackhole who doesn’t like people on blue bicycles, it is not something that can be prevented. They ask this same question every time something bad happens, and their guests tap dance around the real answer. Let’s be on the adult program, please. Stop placating the public with bullshit. Tell them the truth. It is absolutely not possible to prevent every bad thing from happening. Evil exists. Acknowledge that, and be ready to face the evil when it shows its face.
Then, while they tap danced around the topic of his motivation, which to anyone with a freaking brain was pretty damned obvious. When a guy does something blatantly evil like that, then gets out of the car shouting “allahu akbar” it does not take a rocket surgeon to figure out what his motivation was. But they kept ignoring that and were pretending like he didn’t say it. Then after the note the suspect wrote was located, they almost acted surprised. These are the same idiots arguing that we need open borders to take in refugees from the very countries breeding these radical Islamic terrorists. It is like there is an absolute inability or outright, intentional refusal to put 2 and 2 together.
Third, not one time did they attempt to blame the truck (because of course that would be entirely stupid). In fact, very early on, many news sources were calling it a shooting, and some others called it a traffic accident. There was almost a refusal to admit that this was an intentional act committed by a murderous shitbag who was armed with something that was most definitely not a gun. Yet the fact is, trucks have been used a great number of times to kill and injure people in terrorist attacks. Terrorists attempted to blow up the Twin Towers with a bomb in a truck, a terrorist blew up the federal building in Oklahoma City using a truck. Terrorists in Nice, France just last year used a truck to kill 86 people. No one blames the truck, but these juvenile morons are the same idiots who, when there is a shooting, immediately blame the gun and start screaming about the “common sense need for gun control.” How does the general public not see the glaring hypocrisy on display? How do people listen to these idiots and give any credence to their moronic comments?
I just don’t get it. I cannot for the life of me understand how people who, by all other accounts, are intelligent and educated can be so utterly ignorant.
