Another false narrative bites the dust

Another false narrative bites the dust

Stabbings in Sydney and elsewhere show that societal violence is not an issue of guns.

One woman was killed and another seriously injured by a knife wielding man shouting “Allahu akbar,” in downtown Sydney Australia Tuesday. It hasn’t been ruled a terrorist act despite the words shouted during the attack. As reported by the Guardian:

Sydney stabbing: one woman killed and one injured in ‘terrifying carnage’ in CBD

A man who allegedly stabbed a woman to death in Sydney’s central business district before attacking others on a busy city street with a butcher’s knife was arrested carrying information about terrorist attacks and extremist ideologies on a USB drive.

But police say the man did not have any known links to terror groups, and that he acted alone. The attacks are not being treated as a terrorist attack, the New South Wales police commissioner, Mick Fuller, said on Tuesday night.

Last week there were these reports of attacks with knives:

Four dead in Garden Grove mass stabbing attacks

An “angry” man went on a killing spree armed with a sharp object, possibly a knife or machete, as he went from apartments to local businesses in what seems to be a random series of attacks. Four people are dead and two others are injured.

Police have an unidentified suspect, reportedly a 33-year-old Hispanic male, in custody.

We also have this report from USA Today of another mass attack: 2 women stabbed, 1 fatally, in ‘random’ attack at Pittsburgh bus stop.

Another stabbing took place in Israeli, where a soldier was stabbed to death as reported by the Associated Press.

What should we conclude from all of these attacks?

What are we to glean from these disparate attacks? Are we to conclude that we now suddenly have a knife violence epidemic? With attendant hashtags #KnifeReformNow and calls to ban ‘military style’ edged weapons or ‘Assault Weapons’?

These were all random incidences, with it likely being that there is no connection between them aside from Media contagion very much like those involving firearms. But unlike firearms, the national socialist media won’t try to exploit these deaths for political gain.

Something else that cannot be banned.

Even more so than guns, knives would be impossible to control since these weapons are easily made by hand. As they say, all you need is a material that will hold an edge and way to make it sharp. Common materials: stone, wood, metal, plastic, ceramic and even hard candy can be used to make a weapon. It would be impossible to ban stone, wood, metal, plastic, ceramic and hard candy, so it would be impossible to ban edged weapons.

The Bottom-Line.

These incidents of violence show that it’s something more than mere inanimate objects. With the solution just one more Liberty Control measure away. It’s something far deeper than the fact of more than 120 million people and 400 – 600 million guns. These reports show that the gun part of the violence ‘epidemic’ is nothing other than a false narrative.

These incidents show that the problem of societal violence won’t be solved with a bunch of nonsensical hashtags or even more draconian restrictions on Liberty. The solution will have to be addressed with a restoration of moral underpinnings and culture, not with the forcible taking of people’s property without due process or government control of that property.

‘Godfather’ star Gianni Russo on Chris ‘Fredo’ Cuomo’s rant

'Godfather' star Gianni Russo on Chris 'Fredo' Cuomo's rant

When CNN anchor Chris Cuomo was filmed delivering an unhinged rant to a heckler at a restaurant, one of the things many people took offense to was his declaration that the term “Fredo” was to Italian-Americans as the “n-word” is to African-Americans. This has been completely debunked since then with guests on his own show using the name to refer to Donald Trump Jr. But that didn’t keep CNN from backing their guy.

TMZ caught up with Gianni Russo, a star from The Godfather who told the reality of the situation from three unique perspectives. First, he said it wasn’t a racial slur and clearly referred to the weaker brother, a perspective he understands as a star of the film. Second, he knows the Cuomo family well and couldn’t believe Chris would have said that. Third, knowing father Mario Cuomo, former governor of New York, leads him to believe the elder Cuomo would have smacked his son had he heard him say what he did.

No real repercussions are expected against Cuomo from his employers at CNN.

Here’s a video from TMZ of Russo’s perspective:

Do Omar, Tlaib oppose LGBTQ rights like the Palestinian Authority?

Do Omar Tlaib oppose LGBTQ rights like the Palestinian Authority

Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib want Israel to be boycotted, divested, and sanctioned. They want the Democrats in the House of Representatives to take Congressional action against Israel. They want to drive a wedge between the United States and Israel. Most importantly, they want Israel to no longer exist, replaced by the Palestinian Authority and a “New Palestine.”

Do they also support the Palestinian Authority’s ban on LGBTQ activities? Do they agree with the anti-LGBTQ tenets of the Muslims organizations the Congresswomen support?

In a society in which the media handled things in an unbiased manner, these are questions the press would be asking Omar and Tlaib following the Palestinian Authority’s ban on LGBTQ activities in the West Bank, an area where Tlaib’s grandmother lives and where she petitioned to visit before declining to do so after Israel allowed it.

The press should ask them if they support the Palestinian Authority’s move against LBGTQ individuals:

Palestinian Authority bans LGBTQ activities in West Bank

The Palestinian Authority banned members of the Palestinian Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community from carrying out any activities in the West Bank.

The ban came after the grassroots group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society (Arabic for “the bow”), which engages and supports Palestinians who identify as LGBTQ, was planning to hold a gathering for its members in Nablus at the end of the month. The group operates both in the West Bank and among Arab-Israelis.

Both Tlaib and Omar claim to be supportive of LGBTQ rights. But they also have a not-so-subtle attachment to the Palestinian Authority and are actively working to put them in control of all of Israel. Does that mean they would approve of their ban of LGBTQ individuals “from the river to the sea”?

While many in America’s LGBTQ community continue to support and often partner with Islamic groups to help their friends in the Democratic Party, others in the community have spoken out against the anti-LGBTQ policies Muslim majority nations impose on their people. This needs to be addressed by LGBTQ leaders; they can’t (or at least shouldn’t) ignore the plight of the international LGBTQ community for the sake of political expediency.

The Palestinian Authority’s ban on all LGBTQ activities in the West Bank should be a point of contention that Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib need to reconcile. But they won’t. Mainstream media will bury the story and nobody will ask them how they feel.

Dan Bongino calls out Antifa for what they really are

Dan Bongino calls out Antifa for what they really are

There’s a strange series of contradictions within the Antifa movement. They claim to be anti-fascist, yet their actions can only be categorized as fascist suppression techniques. They claim to be against racism and misogyny, yet they intimidate any minority or woman who doesn’t agree with them. They pretend to be brave, yet they hide behind masks.

Conservative pundit Dan Bongino knows a thing or two about fighting fascism, stopping bigotry, and being brave. As an outspoken commentator and former Secret Service agent, Bongino has done more to defend this country and promote the proper ideologies we need in order to prevent fascism from ever rearing its ugly head here. He’s also no fan of Antifa.

As he notes, the real agenda of Antifa isn’t anti-fascism. Their name really implies they’re anti-FA – First Amendment. Even as they fight “hate speech,” they do so in ways that are designed to suppress our freedoms to speak. They’re quickly becoming a parody of the old progressive movements, albeit more dangerous today.
