Didja notice the stupid error right at the beginning?
(Go back and watch it again, we’ll wait.)

Never assume that your graphics weenies know anything about the subject matter that they’re illustrating.

today’s sage advice: from the horse’s mouth

Targets as soft as virgins’ thighs

A Michigan man allegedly threatened to kill police and churchgoers to show support for Islamic State, according to a federal criminal complaint unsealed on Thursday.

Khalil Abu-Rayyan, 21, of Dearborn Heights, … wanted to shoot up a church that has nearly 6,000 parishioners … but he was stopped by his father.

“I tried to shoot up a church one day. I don’t know the name of it, but it’s close to my job,” … “It’s one of the biggest ones in Detroit. Ya. I had it planned out. I brought a bunch of bullets. I practice a lot with it. But my dad searched my car one day and he found everything. He found the gun and the bullets and a mask.”

Why the sam hill didn’t he turn-in his son?

Now for the meat of this post:

The man had wanted to shoot up the church because it would’ve been an easy target …. “It’s easy and a lot of people go there. Plus people are not allowed to carry guns in church. Plus, it would make the news. I regret not doing it. If I can’t do jihad in the Middle East, I would do my jihad over here.” [story]

But our betters say that terrorism is not about Islam.

My point?
Firearms may be prohibited (on private property, it’s considered trespassing), but concealed means concealed.
Mass killers stop killing when they meet resistance.
Just sayin’…

today’s coveted endorsement

Good news, everyone!

A recently retired Ohio police officer has been allowed to buy his K-9 partner for $1.

Officials in Marietta had created a social-media stir when they said Matt Hickey’s police dog, Ajax, had to be sold at auction because it was city property and could still work. Hickey and Ajax worked together for three years, and the dog lived with him. [story]

(What? Yeah, cold-hearted bastards prob’ly actually took the dollar, too.)

Wait, what ?!

It’s like history starts afresh at the beginning of each sentence she speaks.
Who you gonna believe, Hillary or your lying eyes?

The self-beclowning is strong in this one.

Hillary Clinton was asked about her plans for protecting cyber security.
“It is one of the most important challenges the next president is going to face,” Clinton said. [story]

I agree.
The next president must keep people like her away from digital comms and classified info;
and they’ll face quite a challenge cleaning-up her mess, among others.

tonight’s sage advice

Unfortunately, this ain’t it

A public-service advertisement running on Finland TV instructs women in the Scandinavian country on how to fend off a rapist. But rather than pull out a handgun or even pepper spray, the women of Finland are taught to confront their attackers with bare hands and a purse. [story]

I haven’t watched anything this cringe-worthy in quite a while

~ vid ~

Yeah, I can see how that might work if you were Wonder Woman or a Jedi or sumpthin’; but rape is a crime of violence, an attack on the weaker by the stronger, an intolerable violation of one’s person, even a matter of life and death. No amount of cultural sensitivity can possibly justify it, and it should be defended-against with extreme prejudice.


Readers should be thinking of raising their hands and backing away.
See how this works better than a mitten?

No! Don’t go down empty-handed
Other women’s safety may also depend on your ability and willingness to do what’s necessary.

If you must, just think of it in positive, unselfish terms — there’s no chance of an innocent man being blamed, when the (attempted) rapist is the hospital’s prison ward (or morgue).

Yeah, looks like European elites are still in denial about the Muslim Conquest — they’re willing to sacrifice their own people (whom they seem to treat as ungrateful, unworthy, unenlightened children) in order to prolong their fantasy of a sophisticated managerial state husbanding the blessings of multiculturalism.

Stop! In the name of love

As was pointed out in the comments,
they want Finland to become a nation of Gladys Ormphbys,
which is okay, I guess, if all the immigrants are Tyrone F Horneighs

What happened to the Finland of 1939/40?

An officer at The Evergreen State College responded to a report Sunday afternoon that someone had torn down several fliers from the library entrance.

The officer chased the suspect and eventually took him down to the ground, but the suspect thrashed around and tried to grab the officer’s gun. During the struggle, the suspect bit the officer’s ring finger several times and also tried to stab the officer with an ink pen.

The officer was unable to control the suspect — who kept grabbing for his gun — and ended up stepping away. The suspect retrieved a handcuff case, then swung it like a hammer, causing a laceration on the officer’s head.

The officer punched the suspect in the jaw, but the strike didn’t faze him. The officer then used a taser twice, causing the suspect to fall to the ground on the second taser deployment. However, the suspect got up and fled on foot.

A Thurston County Sheriff’s Office deputy saw the suspect running along Evergreen Parkway and chased him into a wooded area. At one point, the suspect threw a rock at the deputy. The deputy used his taser on the suspect, who broke the electrical lines and kept running.

The suspect again threw rocks at the officer, striking him at least once. The deputy caught up to the suspect and struck him several times with a metal baton. The deputy noted that the baton strikes didn’t have much of an effect on the suspect, who was able to grab a brick and throw it at the deputy before running off into the woods again.

At this point, another deputy joined the pursuit and deployed a taser on the suspect. The suspect was eventually tackled, handcuffed and arrested…

Saw a report on DaNooz that the Sacto Kings [b-ball] and the Chinese New Year …outfit made a publicity deal whereupon the Kings would wear and give away Chinese New Year t-shirts in the team colors at some game/event. As “The shirts were part of the Sacramento Kings’ celebration of the Lunar New Year”. Not sure why a b-ball team must have / would have a “celebration of the Lunar New Year” in the first place but… whatever

Somewhat random but likely a crown pleaser. Free usually is.

Well, turned out to be a minefield of Victimology. Whose Race Card will trump? What could possibly be a problem in this Cuuuultural Shaaaaring??!?

The shirts depicted a purple monkey symbolizing the year of the monkey in the Chinese New Year in the team’s color.

uh oh.

[the give-away day] was the first day of Black History Month

The shirts were already being put on seats in the arena when DeMarcus Cousins began to use the word “inseeeensitive” and *p00f* no freebies. hm…

So far, no response from the Chinese New Year people…

The companion story is full of little pieces … First off, some hi-skoolers in Tempe AZ — on senior picture day — had some t-shirts, each with a tape letter, to spell out “BEST * YOU’VE * EVER * SEEN * CLASS * OF * 2016”. The stars serving to separate the words. For clarity, you see.

Being Seniors, they did just what most hi-skoolers would do — began to form other words from the letters on their shirts. Then they took pix and uploaded them to Snapchat [where things are Black Holed after a few seconds][unless someone grabs a screencap…]

Which, of course, someone did:

Holjer Horses, now — that ain’t the controversial bit. That’s just the stupid hi-skooler bit; the bit wherein they figured that if that representation that passes muster in the MSM, how could they possibly get in trouble? riiight?

[I mean srsly — they already have a sufficiency of ‘E’s to create an F and a C, a perfectly good U right there, and the “Modesty Asterisk”. WTH?!? — stick with the classics, dumbasses. The classics are The Classics for a reason. ]

Predictable kerfluffle arises. Including this perfectly Proggie bureaucratese:

“It’s something, as individuals in this state and in this country, we have to make sure we have freedom of speech, but also want to make sure our speech is not hurting other individuals.”

“but” That one, small word erasing thousands of years of Human History containing the thousands of times restricting speech “for a Good Reason” has not worked out well. not once.

But hey — This One Time, because those who might be hurt momentarily discomfited are such good guys — nice folks and all — and really, they can’t even defend themselves, I mean, really, they can hardly even function — right? — we must restrict everyone’s speech. To what WE think it ought to be. Cuz we’re Right. This Time.

[Yes, the example is so obviously, clownishly, cartoonishly A Dumb Idea, it hardly bears mentioning. so I mentioned it. cuz that’s where we’re at these daze.]

So here’s yer kicker: the head of the county NAACP drops by the skool to collect his groveling apology — as Personal Representative of All Black People, I guess?

During the post-apology local media interviews, he was Caught On Camera™ remarking to his next interviewer about his previous interviewer, “Nice Tits

He started here:

He says [his comment] just slipped out “guy to guy.” now says he feels “down in the dumps.”

When that didn’t do the trick, he escalated:

Asked if any kind of effort should be waged to eradicate sexist comments, as well as racist, Harris went off on a tear.

“I’m going to slash my wrists,” he spews. “Better yet, I’m going to throw myself out of a fucking window, except I’m on the first floor . . . I’m one of the best goddamned people in the state.

People criticized him when he first took over the NAACP chief post from the Reverend Oscar Tillman, who retired in 2014 after 22 years in the position, he says, because “I was the wrong flavor.”

“They’ve seen me now, they’ve seen what I’ve done. I’ve given up my law practice. I’m down here six, seven days a week. That’s what my commitment is. I support NOW, the women’s organization — goddamn! — are you shitting me? Are you going to write this up?

ow that’s Virtue Signaling. Every time I see / hear the more subtle kind, I will be thinking of That Man — the Honkey Head of the Maricopa Co NAACP — when he said, “I’m one of the best goddamned people in the state.

oh, yeah — that “wrong flavor” thing? Pure D. Raaaacism.

—————

This deprecation of individual freedom was objectionable to me. I am convinced now, as I was then, that man is an end because he is a child of God. Man is not made for the state; the state is made for man. To deprive man of freedom is to relegate him to the status of a thing, rather than elevate him to the status of a person. Man must never be treated as means to the end of the state; but always as an end within himself.
