The Buckeye jihadist, and other various news sundries

Imagine you have a neighbor, dear reader, and he hates your car. He turns his nose up at you every time you depart or arrive while you're behind its wheel. He scowls at you from behind his fence whenever you wash it. One day your neighbor posts on Facebook, "Hate next door's car. It is a rustbucket piece of crap. It devalues the neighborhood just by sitting in the driveway. I am going to take care of it."
Then you wake up one morning to see the windshield smashed, tires slashed, fuel hoses cut and bodywork dented in. The Facebook post gets called to your attention and you take photos of the car and a snapshot of the social media post and file a police report in which you claim criminal property damage. Once the report is complete, the officer looks you in the eyes and says without a trace of irony, "We will follow up on this, but in all honesty, we cannot determine a specific crime here. We absolutely don't know your neighbor's motives, it's pretty much a mystery. And the end of the day, only he will truly know why he destroyed your car."
That is the essence of what Ohio Governor the Twerker John Kasich said of the car-and-machete attack at Ohio State University when he opined, "We may never totally find out why this person did what they did or why they snapped, we may never find out." Because we wouldn't want to make any assumptions about refugees or the Somali community or Islam, would we? It would defeat the whole narrative of the Dear Leader's "women and children" argument.
That certainly is what Ohio State President Michael Drake urged against when he said at a news conference, "We all know when things like this happen that there's a tendency sometimes for people to put people together and create other kinds of theories. We don't know anything that would link this to any community. We certainly don't have any evidence that would say that's the case." Therefore, strictly speaking, everyone chill out, support each other—presumably by telling each other lies that this had nothing to do with the Religion of Pieces—and let the investigation carry forward, the conclusion of which will be undetermined and one from which we certainly will not learn anything because we never do.
In the aftermath of the attack in which the legal resident jihadist put eleven in hospital by running his car at students, hitting some, and then stabbing others, a staffer at the Ohio State University Office of Residents' Life, Stephanie Clemons Thompson wrote, "Abdul Razak Ali Artan was a Buckeye, a member of our family. If you think it is okay to celebrate his death and/or share a photo of his dead body, and I see it in my timeline, then I will unfriend you. I pray you find compassion for his life." As Howie Carr said, parsing this insane screed, "In other words, if you're cheering the fact that this guy was killed before he was able to kill you, you must be a bad person, you are an Islamophobe!"
Clemons Thompson also included the hashtags for Black Lives Matter (Only When White People Are Involved) and some dumb "civil rights" BS called SayHisName. Stay safe, Buckeyes. Run, hide, fight! And just know that this will easily happen again someday because American universities believe in being sanctuary campuses and places where students are not allowed to defend themselves. Clemons Thompson, once students began calling for her head, deleted the post and begged friends not to share the post, all too aware that it was controversial. Cowardly as always, that's the Left.
Another thing, don't you love how these liberals toss the word pray around as if it actually means anything to them? They're the same people who think creation can exist without a creator, but they're going to pray for us. Golly gee, that's wonderful. But I digress.
I have no faith that this "investigation" will consider the Buckeye jihadist's Facebook entreaty addressing us infidels "to stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah. By Allah, we will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims. You will not celebrate or enjoy any holiday." Artan also wrote that he couldn't "take any more" with regard to alleged human rights abuses of Muslims in Myanmar and worldwide and blamed the United States for participating in them. When the phone didn't ring, it was some concerned member of the Buckeye community placing a call to Columbus authorities.
Artan had also previously complained that OSU had not enough Muslim prayer rooms so that he could fulfill Allah's wish that he put his face in another man's rear end five times a day. In August, he was profiled in a university publication called "Humans of Ohio State." Well, there's a glaring error if ever there was one, but never mind. In this piece, Artan stated that "I'm a Muslim, it's not what the media portrays me to be." Really, Artan? You're a real scream. I meant, you were a real scream.
Seriously, is anyone crying for this piece of excrement? By which I mean to ask, anyone normal weeping for poor, misunderstood Abdul Ali WabbaWabbaDooDa? Anyone out there who thinks any Somalian refugee has done anything of value for America at all, except for Ayaan Hirsi Ali?
In Somalia, over 98 percent of women aged 15 to 49 are forced to undergo female genital mutilation. Much more often than not, it takes place at age 15 when the young women, God forbid, might start to enjoy sex. The more the Somalian community grows, the more this vile, barbaric operation is practiced. It has become an epidemic in the largest Somalian communities in the United States: Minneapolis, Minnesota and Columbus, Ohio. In fact, according to Refugee Resettlement Watch, data from March 2015 indicates that 25,000 or more women or girls are at risk of FGM not just in Minnesota, but also Washington, California, Texas, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey and New York. In Ohio, as well as Illinois, Michigan, Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, between 10,000 and 25,000 females potentially face this butchery.
Folks, we are going to have to keep living this nightmare until Donald Trump officially becomes President on January 20. The current so-called President won't say a word except perhaps that if he'd had a son, it would have looked like Artan the inbred. The media will continue the fiction that America has a duty to reflect and continue to welcome Muslim refugees. The Department of Justice will not lift a finger to ensure that incidents like this, which have become too numerous at this stage to count off the top of one's head anymore, are prevented. We will have to wait for a completely new transfer of people in charge before The Farooks, the Mateens, the Tsarnaevs and the Artans of this world are treated pro-actively by an FBI that doesn't have an incompetent stooge and political hack as its leader and sancturary cities and college campuses are bled dry of federal funding.
Maybe—maybe—then, the focus will be on protecting American citizens of all stripes and faiths rather than having to read about how much Muslims fear retribution in the wake of attacks that were allowed to happen and about which they so often have so little to say condemnation-wise.

Flag burning and free speech pablum

Donald Trump has caused a stir by suggesting a year in jail or even a loss of citizenship for those who burn the American flag. I think this goes too far. No American citizen should face prison time and/or a loss of their citizenship because they exercised what the Supreme Court said constitutes free speech. This of course applies to American flags that you purchase yourself and not one flying outside of or displayed within an edifice or park, public or private.
Mr. Trump is throwing it out there that there should be some kind of punishment for the ungrateful cretins that do burn the flag and I agree with that. Congress has the right to pass a law that recognizes the free speech part of flag-burning, but can also classify it under current hate-crime legislation, same as torching a rainbow flag. If law enforcement catches someone in the act of disgracing, defacing and destroying an American flag, there should be a $100 fine and 30 hours of mandatory service at a VA hospital. Let these pukes see men who sacrificed for their right to hate their country and perhaps they'll be shamed into loving it. Let's say the puke in question doesn't show up for his mandatory assignment looking after disabled veterans. Then the miscreant can be jailed, not for free speech but for defying a court order. The saucy little nobody should serve three months in jail and be told again to fulfill his duty. If he or she fails to do so a second time, it'll be six months in prison. And so on.
A depraved new "challenge" has resulted from Trump's proposition, one with the hashtag FlagBurningChallenge. "I'm so here for this #FlagBurningChallenge," one moron wrote on Twitter. Suddenly, everyone's a fucking free speech advocate. They said nothing when Loretta Lynch threatened punitive actions against those who dared to criticize Muslims in the wake of the San Bernadino massacre. They said nothing to defend Christian bakeries, florists and photographers brought down by militant gays for refusing to provide services to their weddings on the grounds of freedom of expression and of religion. They had nothing to say in support of conservative groups targeted by the IRS. When the Left was dictating the terms of free speech and expression, all was swell.
In the "olden days," there would be street justice for those who burned the flag. You would be pummeled and the police would let it happen, only interfering when they thought the protester had enough. That's how people learned that you don't screw around with national pride. Before the Supreme Court decision in 1989, nobody stopped to think, "Wait a minute, does this count as free speech?" There would be an ass-kicking and everyone concerned generally agreed that it was deserved.
However, in these days of hot chocolate and therapy dogs and free diaper changes and whatever the fuck else is being offered to these butt-hurt little buttercups, that's unlikely to happen again anytime soon. So there has to be another way to get the message through that, free speech or not, the flag is sacred and destroying one is an act—a repulsive one—and cannot be strictly or technically covered as speech or expression.

Fidel Castro: Good riddance

I believe with all my heart that (1) people who have their heads screwed on straight are rejoicing in the death of that murderous dictator, Fidel Castro and (2) that the Commie shitbag is in hell where he belongs and will be forevermore. Long after the Solar System has collapsed upon itself, he will still be in agony—and I couldn't be any happier about it. What's more, I hope he suffered immensely before expiring.
There is no forgiveness, ever, for the truly wicked, and Castro is right up there with the worst of them. It has been said that Castro killed more Cubans in three years than Adolf Hitler killed Germans in six years. Our fifth column journalists are gushing about Castro, calling him a revolutionary as if that term alone indicates benevolence, and positing that Batista was such a bad dictator that the Cuban people deserved Castro's magnificence. They don't realize, because they possess less intelligence than a styrofoam block, that Castro sent journalists, in addition to homosexuals, to forced labor camps where they perished due to "grimy, inhumane and tortorous conditions."
As is usual with the Left, they engage in chicanery and intellectual dishonesty with regard to Cuba's education and healthcare systems. The claim the former greatly increased literacy while the latter looked after the nation's health needs. Cuba's literacy may have increased but only because it was a great tool with which to brainwash and propagandize its population to accept the leadership's authoritarianism. The Cuban educational system was great for teaching the population their ABC's and not much else. As for Cuba's healthcare, it was excellent for members of the government elite and tourists, but the healthcare infrastructure for average Cubans was so weak that they had to bring their own medicine, sheets, iodine, toilet paper and other such things to the hospital with them and many of those items had to be purchased on the black market. After all, whenever Castro was ill, he insisted on doctors from Miami or even Spain. He wouldn't accept what he deemed adequate for the Cuban proletariat, just as Obama won't ever use the "services" provided by the healthcare act colloquially named after him.
The Cuban ex-pats in Miami celebrating the death of the brutal dictator they fled must see as a slap to the face all the accolades being posthumously granted to Castro, including from the White House. I would be furious to see the President and the mainstream media lionizing this bloody strongman to the extent that they are. It is such a shame.
Meanwhile, Obama can send someone to Cuba represent the United States at Castro's funeral, but not in my name. Not in the name of tens of millions of Americans. But, as always, this means nothing to the Dear Leader and his minions in the propaganda dissemination business.

Recount effort DOA! 

The effort to recount the votes in three states that were part of the failed Democratic "Blue Wall"—Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania—that was launched by Green Party candidate Jill Stein on behalf of Hillary Clinton and the Left and funded by evil billionaire George Soros has been nixed. The Pennsylvania Department of State has told Stein that she missed the deadline for a state recount. Wisconsin said it refuses to hand count every ballot as was requested. Michigan noted that it certified its election in favor of Trump. All three states have told Stein: "Go away."
Even an anchor on MSNBC, of all media places, asked Jill Stein, "So Dr. Stein, are you a crybaby or a loser?" The answer to which is yes on both, but Stein alleged, "Well, this is not about me. It's about the American people who emerged from this election as not happy campers. Eighty percent, according to a New York Times poll, were disgusted by the conduct of the election."
So the "conduct" was apparently all on Trump, is the message Stein is sending out here. Hillary would have been charm-school graduate perfect if not for the "mean and nasty" Donald Trump. What, if anything, has that got to do with the final count?
Hillary Clinton's own lawyers have admitted that there's no evidence of fraud on Trump's part, he won every state, even the "Blue Wall" ones, fair and square. As opposed to Clinton who won the popular vote on the strength of three million illegal alien votes and likely stole New Hampshire, Virginia and even Colorado. When you come down to it, this was about pushing recounts past the December 13 electoral deadline so that those three states could be denied to Trump. Not that it would have worked as the House of Representatives would then have the say, but this is what passes for rationale on the Left.
Lefties—at least of the suburbanite prosecco-consuming variety—were prepared to take out a second mortgage or hand over their children's trust funds to Stein as long as there was some hope whatsoever that the election result could be overturned. Truly, deeply, fantastically laughable stuff.
I think this was all an effort to give Hillary hope so she could stop drinking and self-medicating herself. According to certain sources, she is not taking this very well. Would a big, fat "who the hell cares" be too banal of me? Well, I never let anyone get slaughtered in Benghazi and then patronized one of the dead's mothers by suggesting that she was confused as a result of her grief. So, no, I don't feel that it is.
I cannot wait until January 20 when the Left cannot pull any more hair-brained shenanigans. Trump will be the legitimate president and there is nothing they can do about it anymore. If the election results didn't kill most of them off, hopefully the coverage of Trump being sworn in will.
