This will not be one of my typical long explanations as to why the Left does what it does.
On April 19th, 1995 (Hitler’s birthday) 27 year-old Timothy McVeigh blew up the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. 168 died. A cold chill ran up my spine. This was the first time a home-grown American had taken innocent lives to make a political point.
Then on April 20, 1999 (the day after Hitler’s birthday, and two days before Lenin’s) 18 year-old’s Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 13 at Columbine High School near Littleton, Colorado. Unlike McVeigh, both boys came from the best of families and neighborhoods, so President Bill Clinton rushed to the city…not to grieve with the families, but to grant them all absolution.
On April 11, 2011, a 22-year old kid named Jared Loughner killed 6 in a shooting rampage in Tucson, leaving behind his “political” manifesto, a la Ted Kaczynski, on video.
Then in June, 2015, Dylann Roof killed 9 black parishioners in a Savannah church. I wrote about that one, that it wasn’t race, but manufactured hate, that caused Roof to kill. He’s still on death row.
To be sure, we’ve had other “massacres-of-indifference;” Bath, Michigan in 1927, the Texas Tower sniper in 1966, and Virginia Tech in 2007, but all those killers were certifiable in one way or another. John Hinckley, who only killed one, but tried to shoot Ronald Reagan in 1981, was found not guilty by reason of insanity, and recently granted unrestricted released after 40 years in mental confinement.
I know, to many of us, all mass killers are insane, but not all do we allow to escape the gallows on that account. Only McVeigh survived to stand trial, until this young man in Tucson. So we will see.
But Loughner and Roof especially should have proved to us that something vile, other than mental illness, is in America’s water…
…and I am updating this once again to insert what is happening to our children, via another kind of insanity has consumed a portion of our gay community, making Ayn Rand’s essay on Comprachicos almost allegorical…when man-made law literally gifted to natural law a sizeable portion of over 10% of America’s gay population to be reshaped into circus freaks, and thus, on the verge of creating another Sodom and Gomarrah situation that indeed Nature, not Man, may have to take care of…for obvious Natural Law reasons…survival.
The Comprachicos, as you will soon read, were a group of 17th Century nomads who bought children for the express purpose of deforming them so that they could then sell them as circus freaks. They were good at what they did.
I ask you simply to read this essay by Ayn Rand, (1970). She had never heard of video games or avatars or social networks, but she certainly did know “alienism.” Even if you’re not a fan…as I am not that big a fan, myself…you will find her analysis compelling.
After you have read it, then you will know that the course should be clear for us;
…politically, philosophically and morally.
