Speaking Ill of the Dead

Linda Stasi, writing for the New York Enquirer Daily ‘News’, is a sad, sick, hateful b***h.

(Edit: The live link below is via donotlink.com, to avoid supporting the birdcage liner with traffic. H/T to Claire in comments.)

San Bernardino killers were radical, ISIS-loving monsters — but one of their victims was just as bigoted
They were two hate-filled, bigoted municipal employees interacting in one department. Now 13 innocent people are dead in unspeakable carnage.

One man spent his free time writing frightening, NRA-loving, hate-filled screeds on Facebook about the other’s religion.

The other man quietly stewed and brewed his bigotry, collecting the kind of arsenal that the Facebook poster would have envied.

What they didn’t realize is that except for their different religions they were in many ways similar men who even had the same job.

Nicholas Thalasinos was a Messianic Jew who apparently committed the great evil of exercising his First Amendment-protected right to object to abortion, the AGW scam, and scumbag politicians. His F***b**k page is still active,so you can see his rants. Oddly, they mostly look like calm, rational statements and news links. He believed Islam is a violent religion. He was murdered — purely coincidentally, no doubt — by a violent Islamic couple, who killed another thirteen people and wound seventeen more.

The terrorists — who do not deserve to be remembered by name — bought guns, two apparently illegally, since there’s no record of the transfer, illegally modified one and attempted to turn the other into a machine gun. They built pipe bombs to kill more. They dressed up in tactical gear, gathered their lethal tools, swore loyalty to ISIS, and drove to a party to murder innocent, unarmed people.

But the terrorists were nice folks who kept their thoughts to themselves. Unless you count the bullets they dispensed, while Thalasinos… talked. And followed news. How dare he, wonders that Stasi jerk (who believes the 1A is only for her).

It’s not like the NYEDN was ever anything but a leftist, yellow rag. It’s clickbait. I’m sure they’re loving the traffic that Stasi’s smear piece is generating.

Sure, it’s their right to speak horribly of the dead. But we need neither listen nor support them.

Medal of Freed… I don’t think that word means what you think it means

Obama awarded the Medal of Freedom to seventeen people; among them were wannabe gun banner Barbra Streisand and Steven Spielberg who famously retroactively removed guns from his ET film. Both Jews who don’t get it. Spielberg, as the director/producer of Schindler’s List, has no excuse of ignorance.

On the bright side, Jewish-Israeli conductor Itzhak Perlman seems to have stuck to what he’s good at: music. But other than that liberty provides a situation where he can safely do so, I don’t see what that has to do with ‘Freedom’.

Officially, that medal recognizes ‘an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.’ I’ll allow that Streisand and Spielberg could get in on the basis of cultural offerings (that’s pushing it a bit for has-been crooner Barbra), along with Perlman, but their insistence on disarmed, defenseless victims directly counters security and peace. Sen. Barbara Mikulski, another reliable gun-banner was also recognized.

Hmm. The late Shirley Chisholm, another gun control nut, got one. There’s former congresscritter Lee Hamilton, whose Center On Congress appears to favor some restrictions. William D. Ruckelshaus: I don’t know his position of defensive arms, but his DDT-banning EPA has certainly killed a few people. James Taylor flat-out says we need to sacrifice freedom. Yep, Gloria Estefan, too. I rather suspect that Sondheim hates this gun.

Time to rename that award the Presidential Medal of Political Convenience.

Complicity: Accessories before, during, and after the fact

In reaction to known terrorists using illegally obtained automatic weapons, grenades, and improvised explosives, the EU wants to crack down on honest people possessing semiauto firearms. That includes national registries of all firearms and firearms owners (i.e.- the honest folk who obtained their defensive arms lawfully), and collating the national registries into an EU-wide registry. Where have we heard that before?

These ‘leaders’ not only cannot protect their people, they want to ensure their people can’t protect themselves. Call it bureaucratic job security. G-d forbid people should realize they don’t need government ‘protectors’.

In the Paris attacks, the stadium was a gun-free zone which somehow failed to repel explosives. The Bataclan concert hall was a gun-free zone which again failed to repel psychotic goons with guns and explosives. In America, some 92% of mass shootings occur in gun-free zones, or what the more knowledgeable call ‘target-rich environments’.

Which is more evil? Terrorists who kill innocents, or the politicians and bureaucrats who knowingly and deliberately make it easier and safer for the terrorists to commit atrocities?

In a sane world, any politician who imposed any gun-free zone, claiming it will magically repel bullets with a Star Trekish deflector field, would be tried and convicted of terrorism. He’d spend the rest of his life making restitution to the victims of his policy.

Anyone who would impose a defense-free zone on an entire continent should be executed for war crimes.
