Words May Wound but Islamists Will Kill

On his June 16th radio show, Mark Levin said, “I made a suggestion to the gay community. I said you better exercise your second amendment rights while you still can. What did I mean by that,” asked Levin. “What I meant was that you need to acquire weapons to defend yourselves, because you’re being targeted by the Islamo-nazis.”

That’s a good piece of advice, as Levin is known to give. However, his advice runs up against the perceived reality of a lot of today’s youth. This reality is that for today’s youth, from 20-somethings (maybe older), all the way down to elementary school children, the fight instinct has been beaten out of them (figuratively speaking) with the bat of political correctness – leaving only the flight instinct.

Along the same vein as Levin’s advice, I wrote a piece  the other day calling for more Americans, particularly millennials, to fight back, become sheepdogs and stop acting like sheep, so when the wolves come calling, as one did in Orlando, you can and will stand up and protect the innocent.

Sadly, far too many young men and women (and other) have been conditioned to hide or flee, rather than fight. Obviously the parents bear some of the blame, but our education system, such that it is, also bears a great deal. read more

We Need More Sheepdogs and Less Virtue Signaling Sheep

No LGBT community – love will not conquer hate – not this time. No rainbow flags in the shape of hearts or cuddly teddy bears will protect you from gunfire or a suicide bomb when radical Islamists come-a-callin.

Oh, it’s a great liberal sentiment – just as it was after the Bataclan nightclub massacre in Paris in November.

In March, Michelle Malkin wrote a piece entitled, “Post-Jihad Gesture Theater: Je Suis Sick of It.” As is usual, she knocked it out of the park as she wrote: “While homicidal, suicidal and genocidal jihadists are busy plotting the next soft-target terror attacks on the West, docile Westerners are busy shedding cartoon tears and doodling broken hearts on social media.”

Now we’ve had another planned massacre, this time on an American “soft target,” on the heels of our last “soft target” attack in San Bernardino by Islamic radicals. And the response of the Je Suis crowd is the same as it was after the Charlie Hebdo, the Paris and Brussels attacks – candlelight – chalk drawings and “solidarity.”

After the San Bernardino attacks, thousands gathered at San Manuel Stadium to mourn in solidarity. “It could’ve been any of us, so I’ve had a really hard time with it and I just wanted to be around other people who felt the same,” Martha Rendon, a San Bernardino County employee said while holding back tears. “County, city and clergy leaders told the crowd to pray for the victims’ loved ones and to stand united as a community in what will be a long healing process.” read more
