I admit, up front, that I am not the sharpest tool in the box…even so, I don’t understand the thinking of some of the people in this country. Let’s start at the top, with the Muslim-in-chief. He goes to Cuba, poses with a dictator in front of an image of Che Guevara and when the slaughter is occurring in Brussels, he’s doing the wave at a baseball game in Havana. He should have been on Air Force One immediately headed back to our nation’s capital and on national television making some sort of condolence speech to the people killed and wounded in Brussels.
What happens in Europe…soon to be Eurabia, is going to happen in the United States, and sooner than we think. We have thousands of so-called refugees streaming into this country with no, or very little, vetting. We don’t really know who or what is coming into this country but one thing we can be absolutely certain about is that, among these “refugees” are terrorists. They are coming here and they’ve got mayhem, murder and mass killings on their mind. Through our feckless government we are, in fact, saying “Come get me” and kill or torture me. They will be only too happy to accommodate us in that regard.
It took Lurch (aka John Kerry) quite a while and much deliberation, to determine that genocide was taking place in ISIS-controlled areas. Why was this so difficult to determine? Is he another one that doesn’t read the daily intelligence reports…as our incompetent leader does…or doesn’t? This is a situation that has been going on for a long enough time so that it would have been decided long ago by any intelligent administration…oh wait, we don’t have an intelligent administration. What we have is a bunch of idiots in the administration backed up by a bunch of wusses in Congress. For an outsider, looking at this situation, it would be readily apparent that the United States is simply sitting back, watching a ball game on TV and saying, in effect, “come get me”.
In World War Two we had a preview of a genocide perpetrated by the Hitler regime in its attempt to completely eliminate the Jewish population…if not in the world, certainly in every country that they controlled at the time. Six million is the figure that has been agreed upon and, while ISIS hasn’t reached that figure yet, their end game is world domination and that would involve many more millions than six. As for the Jewish population of the United States, it baffles me that the majority of them could ever have voted the way they did…twice! Perhaps the present generation is too far removed from the generation that survived the gas chambers and the crematories.
If they stood up and said, “Come get me” and were holding guns, as they do in Israel, I might understand it better…but that’s not the case.
If you are a person, of any nationality or political stripe, and you have murderous intentions on your mind (which, right there says that you’re off-balance), would you go to a place where you might be confronted with armed people, or go to a place where you were absolutely certain that no one has a weapon. You would go to the place where they are sitting ducks and they might as well be wearing big signs saying “Come get me”. Now, if you’re thinking that tighter, more draconian gun laws would solve this problem, you’re absolutely, completely, wrong. In places where the gun laws are the strictest, the murder rate is among the highest. Also, if you make guns so difficult to get that is only going to hurt and disarm the law-abiding citizen because criminals will get the weapons they want by hook or by crook. And consider this, there are other weapons easily available, such as kitchen knives, hammers, baseball bats and rocks, so would we ban all of those too?
According to Herodotus, when the Persian armies demanded that the Greeks surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae, King Leonidas I responded with “Come and get them” or as it’s translated “molon labe”. The vastly outnumbered Greeks held off the Persians for seven days (including three of battle) before the rear-guard was annihilated in one of history’s most famous last stands. We, in the United States, because of our Second Amendment right, would probably be able to stave off a land invasion, unless our own Armed Forces turned against us. Even so, we could say “Come get us” and fight a guerilla war for years. Right now, in my not-so-humble opinion, it’s not beyond belief that our Muslim-in-chief is deliberately decimating the Armed Forces in order to facilitate a takeover by some foreign force…or maybe our own, because he’s “cleansed” the dissidents from the various services.
In addition to everything else, the weak-minded that are on the “social networks” and are recruited to act in an aggressive manner against their own country, are also saying “Come get me”. The various intelligence agencies of our government (and I use the word intelligence very loosely here) either cannot, or will not, act on the first sign of hostility…and many of these recruits have exhibited a truckload of hostility to their native land, so they react when the damage has already been done.
