Turning Mass Shootings Into A Police State And Other Games


Now that everybody knows (cough, cough) the Los Angeles International Airport shooter was “anti-government,” it follows as night from day that a) he must have developed his political views from conspiracy websites and b) those sites are culpable, right?

Is J.D. Salinger dead enough yet? Can we prosecute his corpse because Mark David Chapman read his dreary novel Catcher in the Rye and then killed John Lennon?

How about all those young men who found “the good pages” in an embargoed copy of Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer and then left home and family, or the later generation of boys who imbibed Jack Kerouac’s On the Road and joined the Beat Generation? Surely some able lawyer can mount a class-action suit against the estates of those two dead authors.

Any day now, I’m expecting the White House to announce the formation of a new cabinet post: the Inflammatory Rhetoric Department.

Hiring: analysts, evaluation experts and SWAT teams trained for home and workplace invasions.

“What are you contemplating, Mr. Smith? Where did you get your information?”

Mass communication psychologists (aka psyop specialists) are working overtime to forge connections between accused criminals and their prior “influences.”

Note from the Editor: Under the Obama Administration, the NSA, the IRS, and the State and Justice departments are blatantly stepping on Americans’ privacy—and these are just the breaches we’re aware of. I’ve arranged for readers to get a free copy of The Ultimate Privacy Guide so you can be protected from any form of surveillance by anyone—government, corporate or criminal. Click here for your free copy.

No longer is it enough to say, “The criminal made his own choices. He did what he did. He’s responsible.”

That went out when the state began taking seriously psychiatrists’ testimony in court.

But recently, things have gotten far more intense. So-called anti-government statements, wherever they are found, are taken to be assaults on Mommy and Daddy.

“How could anyone think the government is bad? It’s absurd. Government Daddy works all day at the office to help us, and at night he comes home and pats us on the head and government Mommy gives us hot chocolate…”

And therefore (against any semblance of logic), if a criminal makes statements against the government, that government and its allied stooges must track down where these ideas came from and pin the blame there, at the source, where it belongs.

“No, the shooter would never have turned into the shooter had he not read volatile statements on website X. Once he did, he was hooked. His mind was transformed into receptive mush. He was helpless. He picked up a gun and walked into the mall and opened fire.”

The “new analysis” stems from the notion that humans are nothing more than reflex biological machines.

So in the spirit of contributing to this new field of inquiry, I have a couple of choices of my own that need serious investigating.

First, remember a little outfit called Project for the New American Century? Coming to power after 9/11, its highly influential chiefs lobbied hard for an invasion of Iraq. Talk about inflammatory rhetoric.

Add up the subsequent planes with bombs, the missiles, the soldiers with tanks, the deaths on both sides. Now that was a mass shooting, in full view of the American public.

And if you want to wander back much further into that hated territory called history, you’ll come upon another wild-eyed bunch called the Council on Foreign Relations.

In the early days of World War II, they were already making plans for the post-war peace. They designated a committee to determine whether the United States could survive as an isolated entity or whether it needed to go out beyond its borders for vital resources.

The CFR naturally concluded the latter and, doubling down, decided that the United States should install, through force and clandestine operations, a Pax Americanus covering the whole globe. Imperial empire.

Those CFR boys knew how to inflame. And they had marvelous connections at the State Department, which, in turn, had a clear pipeline to Franklin Roosevelt, the President.

As a matter of fact, right now somebody should be investigating what the White House is reading. Because with all those drone strikes and with all this nonstop surveillance, it’s obvious they’re on some pretty nasty websites.

One more, while I’m at it: I want to know which conspiracy website the U.S. Supreme Court is wrapped up in. Because its decision to allow a corporation or labor union to spend big money to advocate for or against a political candidate… well, those Justices are obviously being driven crazy by some master conspiracists.

Meanwhile, what about the millions of people who absorb their knowledge from The New York Times, plus the three clowns anchoring the evening network news? That insane and monstrous influence should be investigated immediately, because the victims are dying, drip by drip, from terminal brain damage.

Whenever Brian Williams, Scott Pelley, and Dianne (“don’t cry for me, America”) Sawyer speak, neurons are irretrievably lost.

Here are a few more treasonous anti-government people who should be investigated, in absentia:

“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost immediately he comes to the conclusion that government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable…” (HL Mencken, 1919)

“Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.” (Mark Twain, 1881)

“Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best state is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one.” (Thomas Paine, 1776)

Where are these men? We must curtail their operations. What websites are they running? Who might they influence to pick up a gun and commit a crime? We must locate these three men and get them to a psychiatrist, so they can be diagnosed with the correct mental disorders and treated with the appropriate drugs.

    The previous recent shootings were probably liberals, as they were done by minorities. The MSM would not show their faces, and dropped the stories quickly. Now there is a different type of mentality, so this will be splatted on the front pages/media for weeks.

      The Previous shootings all of which occurred in “government” sponsored “safe gun free zones” I believe to be perpetrated by our GOVERNMENT to further their agenda to disarm law abiding Americans. It is too coincidental these shootings are all similar in nature perpetrated by people with the same individualistic profiles. Loners, mental patients off their meds single violent video game players etc. way too coincidental.

      To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

      You don’t have to be a Marine to make a difference the only requirement is being truly patriotic and the willingness to back it up!!!

        You know, Force Recon, I also thought it to be somewhat too much of a coincidence. Regardless, every gun incident is being plastered all over the MSM pages daily…except for the heavy Urban minority statistics….which are (as in lab lingo) TNTC (too numerous to count, but kept out of the media.

        “””To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.”””
        Very good analogy, Force!

          I don’t believe in coincidences at least not this many this close to each other, and given the push for more gun control doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what’s going on.

          Too many people are waiting for someone to do something they know what needs doing but wait for someone else to act. I am getting to the point of no return as I am close to being pissed off at stupid people enough to take a few by their shoulders and shake some sense into them. I am definitely ready for a confrontation should someone try and usurp my rights.

          To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

    Reminds me of the anti- free speech case The Pro-Homo supporters have made against Pastor Scott Lively for evangelizing against homosexuality in Uganda & saying he is responsible for the repression there & the judges who will not dismiss the case:

    lol…if ‘they’ want a list of subversive sites,they have but to follow me….
    but, then again, they are. If they get to my library records….well,
    they can only eliminate a percieved threat once.

  • Alan

    Mencken, Twain, and Paine, sure knew what they were talking about. They were all correct in their assessment.

  • http://www.voltairepress.com Paul Anthony

    Using this logic (?) and knowing the Senate will never impeach Obama, let’s start a class action suit against Saul Alinsky and all the Political Science professors at Columbia and Harvard.

    • Muffin Man Mashinksy

      Alas, those who sit in judgment will probably be Alinskyites as well!

  • vicki

    On the bright side at least they are not blaming an inanimate object this time.

    Remember the comments Obama made about websites, Blogs and talking heads? Dianne Frankenstein pushing for Who can be a journalist and who is not. They are targeting blog sites that’s for sure. Another shot at the first amendment freedom of speech. We now have to worry about speaking the truth on our blogs for fear of being anti government.
    Well my site is for government and the true ways it is supposed to be. One of my motto’s is this “if it is the truth, I will point it out. If it is bulls**t I will point it out”.
    So now because I point the lies out. Praise republicans for standing up and criticising those that have no backbone and Share with others blogs. Now I am a anti government site?
    NOT! I will, like this site. Put talking points and truths out. If I must die I will.
    God Bless America!
