It isn't just that it is ridiculous and over the top. It isn't amusing and it isn't particularly shocking given the number of idiotic things the code pink movement and follow-on movements, whatever they call themselves, get up to these days. What it clarified for me tonight is that it simply isn't all that shocking and is fairly typical for those who identify with movement issues beyond the bounds of decorum, reason or sanity. You know, the kind of people that insist that their angst and hate issues outweighs the will of the majority in a Republic.
I know what the taliban did when they decided to shock the world and show us they meant what they said. They acted in line with past behavior of their kind of muslim religious fanatic and they started blowing things up. They started with cars and people and buildings and thought they'd top that and show the world they meant business and details can be found here. It is fascinating reading. They blew up the 5th century statues of Buddha because the statues were incompatible with their world view.
Not to be outdone, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria followed the ordinary muslim practice of sudden onset radical fundamental religious madness and initiated their own vicious attacks on cars, buildings, people, whatever crossed their path and then decided that what really needed to be done was reduce ancient Palmyra to utter ruin and they devoted considerable time and effort to destroying all that remained of the city named Palmyra.

Sadly, the real outer fringe of lunacy in antifa and blm may be deciding that perhaps a red guard isn't enough and what they need to do is call our attention to them by resorting to atrocities along the same lines as the taliban, isis, isil and pol pot.
Before I became familiar with Mueller and Comey I used to not worry over much about the radical fringe since I figured that the FBI was keeping an eye on them. Now that I've seen the upper echelons of the FBI, DoJ, ATF, etc. at work, I no longer have any faith that they could find their way out of a wet paper bag.
I expect if things don't go down in the special counsel's auto-da-fé as arranged by the lunatic democrats, the pipe bombs will start turning up all over the place in an effort to show the justice of their charges against Trump by blowing up little kids on the Mall or trying to truck bomb the Lincoln Memorial because he was, after all, a Republican.
These groups have a nasty habit of random violence.
and now we realize the true genius of the second amendmentyReplyDelete
and the rollback of most state and local prohibitions on concealed carry!Delete
Thank God that I was able to get over to Palmyra when we used to go to Tripoli for bomb & gun practice down from the UK. Nice pics and memories...now people that follow after types like me have virtually nothing to see of one of the great cultural historic remains of mankind.ReplyDelete
Kind of makes you wonder if what Shelley found in Egypt as he stood before Ozymandias was all that was left after a 9th century muslim cleansing of the 4000 year history of ancient Egypt.Delete
BY PERCY BYSSHE SHELLEY
I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”
