There was an op-ed of sorts online this morning by Rock Star Hall of Fame member and Second Amendment activist, Ted "Uncle Ted" Nugent"...
during which, Uncle Ted was quoted as having said, "The only people who smile and rejoice in killing innocent people are
those pure evil rabid dogs who kill innocent people. Hitler was evil.
Stalin was despicable and evil. So was Pol Pot, Mao Zedong, Idi Amin and
other such subhuman mass exterminators. The world is better off with
these rabid dogs off the planet.
Now, I’ll admit I’m not opposed to putting hollow points to the back
of the heads of human cockroaches and various other vermin who wish to
imprison me with their braindead, toxic “values.” Truth is I want to
eliminate them from planet Earth and erase them from the history books
of the human race.
To show you how radical I am, I want carjackers dead. I want rapists
dead. I want burglars dead. I want child molesters dead. I want the bad
guys dead. Let the victims defend themselves in a timely, efficient
manner. Double tap center mass. No court case. No plea bargaining, no
parole. No time off for good behavior, no early release. I want ‘em
dead." (The entire article is available at http://www.wnd.com/2015/01/save-the-planet-kill-the-muslim-third-reich/ for those who may be interested.) Some whiney-ass liberal piped up in the "Comments" section with, "Carjackers, rapists, burglars, molesters...all the bad guys dead is
Ted's wish. Not that I totally disagree, but death is a bit harsh for
some of these offenders." My response follows:
"Carjackers, rapists, burglars, molesters..." ALL terrorize somebody in order to do what they do. I would probably replace "burglars" in that list with "home invaders", but that's just me. "Uncle Ted's" bottom line is, that the criminal element in the world relies heavily upon acts of violence, intimidation by threats of acts of violence, the display of a deadly weapon to reinforce the severity those threats. Who, of sound mind, wouldn't be terrorized if they were unable to defend themselves and their family against such assaults? We should be less concerned about the rights of those perpetrating crimes, and more concerned about the rights of their victims to not live in fear and paranoia - real OR imagined.
The Islamist faction is obviously not a peaceful group! If it were, there would be reports of them carrying out spontaneous acts of love and peace toward their Infidel neighbors... there are no such reports, because the "radicals" among them will declare the doers of good to be apostates, and kill them along with their Infidel neighbors. When the "radicals" came, they would take up arms with which to REPEL them, and DEFEND themselves and their neighbors.
In-part, the problem is one of identification. The cowardly "Islamic radicals" do not have the courage to face their "enemies"- they do not wear uniforms, they HIDE among the population as civilians until they choose to attack those same civilians. They will NEVER face a military force - or even well-armed civilians - by choice, but only if they are trapped and have no option.
In what meaningful way are America's home-grown thugs any different than the Islamic terrorists? Okay, the numbers of the thugs victims are generally MUCH smaller, and they may only rarely have the intent to take lives in order to commit their intended crime. But, we're talking about the EMOTIONAL IMPACT on the victims - victims who ARE TERRORIZED when they are directly exposed to the face of evil. There is no measurable, noticeable difference!
I'm with "Uncle Ted"... wantonly take a life, forfeit your life - attempt to terrorize others, be prepared to forfeit your life on the spot... perhaps at the hands of your intended victim! I SUPPORT THE U.S. CONSTITUTION, THE "CASTLE DOCTRINE", THE SECOND AMENDMENT, AND THE RIGHT OF EVERY AMERICAN TO FEEL SAFE IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY!"
