My original topic of this post was to discuss America’s fascination with frivolous law suits and serial litigates, but in light of the event on Saturday night, June, 11th, in Orlando Florida that left 49 people dead and more than 50 injured, I’ve decided that that post can wait a bit longer.
It’s impossible for me to find any humor in the wake of this horrible event, but anger is easy…thankfully this piece of shit was put down. I pray it was a slow and painful death. Allahu Akbar, fucker!
Before I actually get started I have to address Donald-Fucking-Trump. He has simply taken one step deeper into the chasm of ignorance. In an act of egotistical masturbation he went directly to Twitter, seemingly his go to for everything given his limited knowledge and grasp of everything from diplomacy to the English language, to say, “Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical terrorism…” (Should a man running for the presidency actually “tweet?”)
Two words to the Orange Asshole: FUCK. YOU.
My anger here has me in digression, but be assured I will take every opportunity to slap this dumbass around in our blog.
What we know of domestic terrorism isn’t exactly what happened in the Orlando attack.
Domestic terrorism, by definition, reads like this: https://www.justice.gov/archive/ll/highlights.htm
Terrorism, as a term in the United States, is categorically broad. This includes too many possibilities to state here, but range from anti-abortion activists to eco-terrorists and beyond.
Since the attacks on September 11th of 2001, 9/11, terrorism has a face. To most American’s this face bears a sparse wiry beard atop a body donning a thobe. (I find it odd that no one has correlated the events to the emergency code 9-1-1)
We know who our enemies are and they aren’t just Islamists. Russia is on a comeback and North Korea and China are big on the list. Then of course there is Trump; the biggest risk to national security.
The senseless acts of violence such as Saturday’s mass murder, by any name or cause, aren’t committed by the religion or the tenets of them, but by the flawed minds and understandings within. The truth is, as in any faith, there are those incapable of maintaining sensibility and sanity. The lack of mental health isn’t relegated to one religion.
Muslims are a passive, peaceful and passionate people by and large. And for the same reasons most in our country hate them, they hate us. Propagandists upbringing. For years it was the Russians, the Germans and Asian folk that drew our hatred.
Being called “radical” doesn’t give the acts any more or less reason. (The word best to describe these fucktards is SAVAGES.) The fact that it’s random, heinous, poisonous to the populous and deadly leads to the question of “WHY?”.Why target a dance club? a theater? a certain life choice? an iconic landmark? It’s just too unpredictable. Are they crimes of passion? Acts of a misinterpretation of scripture? What the fuck is it? There’s no thread.
Since 9-1-1 there have been no less than 28 documented terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. 10 of them by jihadist fucks, and the remaining 18 by bigoted Americans a.k.a. “the far right wing.”
How do we better assure the safety of America?
The far rights and the jihadists are hard to target unless we have some sort of foreknowledge. Religious fanatics come in many forms and aren’t always looking to hurt or kill those they don’t agree with. Nonetheless, they are folks of concern. Then those that act alone like the Timothy McVeigh and Charles Whitman are also a threat. Omar is one such asshole (maybe) and, as well, a native born American.
With the help of Google, the NSA, via the Patriot Act, is picking up speed on the ever growing database with profiles on virtually every American.(And know if you have kids, be confident that they’re already running a historic tab with our government.) They have engineered programs with algorithms to divide and discern our threat levels. Our “history” of searches on the web, including research, proving yourself in a bar debate or browsing the daily news sites are coupled with our actual records both public and private to define us in the eyes of homeland security.
So, what’s being missed here? A myriad of things.
For instance, not everyone uses the internet as a place to research or develop. Some are simply instructed by their “leaders” because they are part of the “flock”…the fucking sheep. In these cases people are attracted, lured and then become dedicated to a charismatic personality with an extreme agenda as opposed to forming their own opinion based on the facts and the true possibilities of an idea or ideal to move forward with a plan based in reality. (now that was a run on sentence!)
They’re separatists. Examples: Louis Farrakhan, David Koresh, Reverend Jim Jones and Marshal Applewhite. In a “nutshell”, cult leaders. I would even throw Jessie Jackson and Oral Roberts into this category.
So let’s make something clear here…ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) is not an army. They are little more than just another cult. ISIL is just a politically correct courtesy coined by Obama (most likely one of his advisers) to broaden the scope of the anagram with the “L” to define a much larger area known as Levant. (BTW, ISIS/ISIL has now taken to referring to themselves simply as “IS” hoping to widen their “appeal.”)
“IS” is a loosely organized gang attacking with rudimentary weapons and tactics. The only reason Americans are dying overseas is because they are there fighting wars we have no business in.
Funny, in the not funny way, “the Donald” says there should be an increase in military presence. Another show that he’s an idiot. Our military can’t act on American soil.
Anyway, it’s my belief that these cult leaders simply became so fucking lost and corrupt in their own irrational misgivings that the answer was to gather the gullible in support of bizarre delusion.
One widespread cult that I love to point out whenever the subject of bullshit religion, self-aggrandizing fanaticism and manipulation arises, is Joseph Smith, the “creator” of the Mormon “religion.” Though they aren’t terrorists, they are funny. And something funny needs to be in this post…
“Good Old Joey” claimed he found a pile of rocks that, through God, told the past and the future (the seer stones) and laid out the world as it should be. He wouldn’t let anyone else see the rocks because he was told, by God, not to. This guy got folks to move across the country, many dying on the way, (also prophecy) to take up roots in Utah and spread the word. For the purpose of legitimacy, last year they released a picture of one of the stones.
Amazing! Now I’m totally convinced! I thought this shit was totally made up since they don’t believe in anything that isn’t in the bible. (the King James version, and no, not Lebron’s) To them the world is just over 6,000 years old, so dinosaurs never walked the earth. (Dinosaurs are scary. Did you ever see Jurassic Park?!?!?)
Until the attacks in September in 2001, there hadn’t been an act of war on American soil since Pearl Harbor.
What do we do?
More restrictions on immigration? Probably. More scrutinized itinerary analysis of those on the verge of the no fly list, either through association or destination? Yup. Better gun control laws? Yes.
Here’s the rub…
Omar had been on the FBI’s suspected terrorist list, not once, but twice. (the terrorist screening list)
In 2014 he was relieved from scrutiny after “intensive investigation” didn’t lead to an arrest. His travels back and forth to Saudi Arabia (keep in mind he is a native born American), his comments of wanting to kill to co-workers just wasn’t enough. Nor were his known associations with other suspected terrorists. Hmmm. The FBI, in their defense, states now that they were restricted by the “probable cause” restrictions.
Said to be a regular at “Pulse”, the predominately gay club he shot up, a member of several gay dating sites (dude was gay), his wife stating, “he’s unstable”, Omar declared his allegiance to ISIS in a phone call (hopefully not an iphone) to 911 as he began slaying innocent people. Acting on his own, as far as we know, Omar Mateen was allowed to purchase guns just days prior to the murders; An AR style assault rifle (sig sauer .223) on June 4th and a glock 17 on June 5th.
Now, considering the 29 year old’s past of suspected terrorist links and statements, investigations by the FBI, whether they bore fruit or not, should, in my opinion have been red flagged for such purchases. A nonstarter, ya know? A big fucking hole in the system to protect. It should have been obvious that he wasn’t going bird hunting. Hell, I got a DUII and can’t legally own a gun until March of next year!
Since these jihadist attacks stem from (aside from the obvious mental instabilities) religious impurities let’s play their game and get biblical on their asses. Eye for a fucking eye! (let me also state that I am totally against the insanity plea. If you’re no fucking good then be subjected to the decision to make the world a better place.)
Domestic terrorism shouldn’t be excluded from this equation either and should be punished with the same conviction.
We live in a country that is confused, afraid, stuck in a place that places too much importance on the “politically correct” without a sense of the absolute right thing. This makes us weak.
Our (lack of a true) justice system has been reduced to attorneys finding loopholes, interpretations of laws and “lack of proper procedure” to keep justice from being exacted. “corrupt bullshit” I believe is the legalese used to describe it.
So, unfairly, and without need of “Due Process,” others, unlike Omar, that didn’t meet Allah, like the remaining Boston Marathon brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, are dealt with in a court of law. Allowed attorneys to drag shit out, go for the insanity plea then an appeal and cost tax payers money with their defense when they actually had none. Found guilty (duh) and take another bed in an already overcrowded prison, be protected from other inmates, isolated with special treatment and their names placed in the annuls of monsters that have made history committing heinous acts. The loved ones of those he killed will have to live with the courts decisions granting life in light of the deaths of the innocents they have slain.
After killing 3 people and injuring 260, admitting to doing so, Tsarnaev’s legal team actually asked for a new trial because the jury couldn’t be impartial. Then actual Americans protested that he was given the death penalty! WTF?!?!
I firmly believe that cases without a reasonable doubt should never see a courtroom, jail and certainly not involve an attorney.
The media should be called in to view, the public should be called to congregate and the execution should be aired over the internet, every network known to man, recorded and shown repeatedly followed by pictures of his body strung up and rotting on a light pole as a statement that, in the words of Dee Snyder, “We’re not gonna take it!”
