"One death is a tragedy; a million merely a statistic." - Joe Stalin
While some of us were walking on eggs awaiting the smoke to clear from the scene of Saturday's mayhem in Tucson, the usual suspects on the Left were out in force blaming the conservatives and the TEA party movement and anything that moves on the Right.
As the story becomes clearer, we find that the madman was associated more with the Left. We also find that the Sheriff, a Democrat, who was among the first to ring the hate-the-Right bell, appears to have been doing some shift-the-focus CYA: he had prior knowledge of the madman issuing death threats and did not act on it.
Agit-prop, Agitate and propagandize, is the planned disruption of normal life, expecting a reaction, or staging excessive one if the desired type of reaction does not materialize, and then pointing out the outrageousness of the reactions over and over again, counting upon help from friends in the press to propagate the propaganda campaign far and wide.
With the current episode, the Left had been looking for another Oklahoma City so Obama might make gains as did Clinton after his mid-term fiasco of 1994. So they just moved in while the gun smoke was still in the air, and made up lies to propagate. A big lie campaign. Will the blogs be able to defeat them alone? (Fox News' Roger Ailes seems to have no stomach for the battle).
Nowadays the entire Fourth Estate is either part of the act or under the thumb of those who are, so now it's up to blogs like this one to expose the game.
More popular blogs than this one are actively doing that.
Here's my contribution to the deeper implications of this chaotic news cycle.
The Statists who want power will be actively pushing bills aimed at further conditioning of Americans into fearing individuals.
Individuals, by themselves, whether a lone madmen like this one, or a gang of thugs who terrorize whole neighborhoods such as some here in Los Angeles, ARE NOTHING COMPARED TO WHAT A THUGGISH STATE IS CAPABLE OF DOING.
The Left and some SKUNCs in the GOP and the bulk of the press, and some "conservative" talkshow hosts, will focus on the tragedy of the mayhem in Tucson.
- But they will remain silent about the legacy of 100 million murders of subjects of communist rule in the last century.
- They will remain silent about on-going planned mass starvation of 50% of the population of Zimbabwe under bloody Marxist Robert Mugabe.
- They will remain silent to what the subheading in my masthead refers: The anti-human desire by well-funded Utilitarian nutcases who believe that non-useful human beings should not be alive because their continued existence will either starve the rest of us (the moral imperative of the Malthusian nutcases) or irreversibly pollute and deplete the planet (the moral imperative of the Green nutcases).
The indispensable Kevin Baker, by way of Dr. Sanity, has an 85 minute video posted* about the 20 million civilian mass murders committed by Joseph Stalin. If someone as knowledgeable about self-defense as Kevin can state "the thing that I didn't understand before is that mass murder isn't a bug of Marxism, it's a feature,'' perhaps there is hope.
There is hope that more intelligent writers around the world will have the clouds lifted from their vision after seeing this documentary.
