Posted on 12/04/2015 5:52:04 PM PST by Kaslin
The attack in San Bernardino on Wednesday was a terrible tragedy. Nobody can say that we should not be doing all in our power to bring about real solutions that prevent this kind of event from ever happening again. Sadly, the debate over those solutions has turned poisonous.
The New York Daily News wasted no time attacking those who dared pray for the victims:
Far-left online dumpster Mother Jones rushed to their defense after the backlash, declaring such a brilliant headline to be "pitch perfect".
Other gun-control supporters piled on:
Thoughts and prayers aren't enough—we must act to protect families from gun violence. pic.twitter.com/KDBBuXp6W5— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) October 12, 2015
Your "thoughts" should be about steps to take to stop this carnage. Your "prayers" should be for forgiveness if you do nothing - again.— Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) December 2, 2015
Another Mass Shooting, Another Deluge Of Tweeted Prayers w/ @ArthurDelaneyHP https://t.co/Ty337lKUhJ— Sam Stein (@samsteinhp) December 2, 2015
Undeterred by the widespread rebuke of their prayer-shaming, the NYDN struck again on Thursday, blaring that the NRA was enabling domestic terrorism. Never let a crisis go to waste, right? What better way to garner wall to wall media coverage than to implicate the left's favorite punching bag. Katie has already detailed the NYDN's attempt to lump in the NRA with terrorists. To those who make these despicable claims, your right to defend yourself is really just a masked effort to arm radical Islamists.
This kind of reaction is standard procedure now. President Obama's response to the Paris terrorist attacks was to point his finger across the political aisle and declare that Republicans, his fellow citizens, were actually helping ISIS recruit more fighters. No change in strategy. No call to unite the country. And while the American people strongly reject his refugee plan, the President directs his party and his liberal allies in the media to ignore the real enemy of the American people. Our President took the moment to accuse fellow law-abiding citizens of aiding the murderous caliphate that has prospered under his leadership, or lack thereof.
Oh, and don't even think about mentioning the radical Islamist ideology that just fueled a terrorist attack on our soil. That would be Islamophobic
Disagree with the left, and you're picking the side of the terrorists. This is really what they're boiling it down to. But if thatâs all they've got, at least they're consistent.
If you only have one note, sing it as loudly as possible. https://t.co/CJcbmNzal3— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 3, 2015
They make it sound as if the guns MADE them do this. They might look elsewhere.
Even maki8ng such a suggestion gives these vermin the benefit of a doubt they don’t deserve. THEY KNOW EVEN GUN CONFISCATION WILL NOT STOP MURDERERS DROM SLAUGHTERING WITH GUNS> Those who plan to murder will get guns even if they have to steal them from armories or cop lockers. The media vermin are working for masters who want the American People, not the criminal elements, disarmed. Don’t help the lying scum media vermin float the false narrative again and again, by asking things suggesting these verminous bastards are confused. They are not. They are serving the agenda of their masters. They are dead soul enablers of the evil that is aborting the Repbulic.
Not having GOD in their lives made them do it!
There fixed it for you.
It’s all misdirection to avoid the truth.
The problem is Islam.
Subject: Fw: Doctors vs Gun owners
(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.
(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are
(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171
Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services.
Now think about this:
(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000.
(Yes, that’s 80 million)
(B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500.
(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .0000188
Statistics courtesy of FBI
So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
Remember, ‘Guns don’t kill people, doctors do.’
FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN,
Almost everyone has at least one doctor.
This means you are over 9,000 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as by a gun owner!!!
Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.
We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!
Out of concern for the public at large, we withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!
and a muslim president who is doing everything in his power to empower islam (globally) at the expense of Christian based America.
He wants sharia to reside globally. By getting America, he takes down western man.
We need universal registration of Muslims.
If allah is all-powerful, then why does he need all this help?
What’s the FBI’s criteria for “accidental?”
God wasn’t there, Allah was.
If the NRA is responsible for 12/2/15 then the FAA is responsible for 9/11/01
Many liberals actually believe that. They made a movie about it "Blue Steel" with Jamie Lee Curtis. According to libs, mere possession of a firearm turns normally placid, law-abiding people into lunatic killers.
I have no idea of the veracity. It was received in my email.
It might be right, it might be wrong but worthy of conversation lol and possibly research.
Hey - you act like the “president” is a treasonous Muslim who is instigating and abetting the murder of ordinary Americans...
There was a brief mention about a Syed Farook's neighbor saying that he noticed suspicious activity and behavior, but was reluctant to report it for fear of being accused of "racial profiling, islamophobia" etc...
So remember, 'Guns don't kill people, political correctness kills people.'
These are the very human garbage that will be cowering behind a marine in thier time of need. There is a sickness in this country
