The Terrorist Response Road Not Taken December 5, 2015

Posted by geoff in News.

You know, there are two ways to avoid hate crimes against Muslims in this country. The first, which I’ll call for simplicity the “stupid way,” is to bear down on the citizens of the United States to try to force them to comply. Needless to say, that’s the administration’s current approach.

The second approach, which is more traditional, is to convince the populace that the government understands their concerns and is taking decisive action to rectify the problem. And that the government is prioritizing their safety and quality of life. This reassures the citizenry that they need not take action themselves.

Sure would be nice if the general population of the US could get through a terrorist-inflicted tragedy without being lectured, threatened, and deprived of their rights.

“Sure would be nice if the general population of the US could get through…”
geoff you got that one right –
under this administration i sure do feel like i’m locked down in the general population.
being lecture to/at by mentally handicapped community organizers definitely has gotten old.

Crime doesn’t cause vigilantism. Government does. Vigilantism is caused when people believe the government does not protect them and that they are on their own.

Vigilantism is caused when people believe the government does not protect them and that they are on their own.

…and you can see exactly what it is that people believe by looking at gun sales. They clearly don’t feel like they’re being adequately protected by government.

It would be nice if our government took on that responsibility. Regrettably, and for reasons I can’t even explain beyond “political power” our betters have decided we just have to accept us some murdering
