More controls imminent
Muslim extremists living among us bomb a foot race with pressure cookers, nails, ball bearings and chemical reactions — and the first reaction on the left (and the risk averse right) is to hide away the pressure cookers, then, having defended a city-wide shutdown to accommodate a militarized police presence, call for “re-interpreting” the Constitution to create a surveillance state, along with measures that would target gun ownership, gun powder, and fireworks.
— Okay, maybe that’s the second reaction — the first being, how can we blame this slaughter on the TEA Party?
So the question becomes, why not also do away with tempting targets, like Patriot’s Day foot races and sky high buildings stuffed with westernized infidels?
Because if you think about it, Boston was just asking for it, wearing its skirt so short and its pumps so high — and then traipsing through an entrenched and copious academic culture that preaches American perfidy and criminality and oppressiveness and hate.
Why, what are a couple of poor adrift Muslim boys to do…?
Look: the left, part of the right, the mainstream press, et al., can try to pressure us into surrendering individual liberty to their hearts’ content. But the truth is, there are a great number of us who will resist such attempts.
The conversation is over. Now it’s all about choosing sides.
