Unfortunately these days, law enforcement deaths have been happening all-too-frequently. In the past 24 hours alone, 11 officer have been killed. In 2010, line-of-duty deaths rose 40% from 2009 statistics, and 2011 is getting off to a rocky start. I am praying for all of our law enforcement officers out there, as well as our first responders, firefighters, and anyone else who runs to the face of danger while the rest of us are running from it.
Glenn, I agree with you that we should find out how to donate to donate to local LOD death funds to help support the families and children of the fallen. God knows America owes her public safety professionals every bit of gratitude we can muster. And we must forever shun those violent extremists, left or right, communist or anarchists, who still target LEOs (or as they still call them “pigs,” which is totally disgraceful).
If you do nothing else this weekend and this upcoming week (hell, for the rest of your lives while you’re still standing), please see how you can help with families of fallen officers, and as important, when you see an officer, make a concerted effort to shake their hands, tell them how much you appreciate them, and implore them to be sure and wear their vests.
Today’s Glenn Beck show was a very somber yet thought-provoking one. Living, breathing, sentient beings are turning against one another, and for stupid, idiotic reasons. Since when did we think it was good for the Republic that we be fighting amongst ourselves, instead of uniting together again like we did on 9/11 & 9/12/01?
Unfortunately, our priorities are all fouled up. The man-on-the-street interviews done by many TV hosts show the sad state of intellect and knowledge that is going to be the death of this country if we don’t wise up.
Glenn makes a great point about this very subject. Why is it that “The Jersey Shore” has record-breaking ratings for MTV, yet most of the viewers of these shows cannot name many elected officials when shown their photos? Why do we ALLOW ourselves to become so focused on the “Entertainment Tonight” shows of the world, yet refuse to pull our heads out of our asses long enough to at least pay attention to some of what’s going on in the real world?
On the heels of the mass murder and shooting at a Tucson “Congress on Your Corner” event with Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, which left 6 dead and twelve injured, Democrat Sheriff of Pima County, AZ, Clarence Dupnik blames Jared Loughner’s mass slaughter on “vitriolic rhetoric” coming from talk radio. He says that we must all remember that psychos like Loughner are more susceptible to this vitriol coming from the “radio business” and the “TV business,” and its message about “tearing down the government.” (Read = Tea Party, Talk Radio, and Fox News)
He also says that all members of Congress, and really all elected officials, face a threat at some point or the other in their careers due to the contentious nature of the laws and bills passed, legislative decisions made, and that unfortunately, Arizona has become the “mecca for prejudice and bigotry” since S.B. 1070 passed. Since when is it the Pima County Sheriff’s countenance to deem what is socially right or wrong, especially when it’s spoken in ignorance of the law? And Sheriff Dupnik might want to reserve his judgment until all is discovered about this case, considering some of Jared’s favorite reads include “Mein Kampf” and “The Communist Manifesto.” Yeah… a real right-wing extremist, for sure.
The story of NPR’s firing of Juan is well known, as is Megyn Kelly’s take-down of CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper. CAIR and Ibrahim Hooper are just the same kind of race-pimps that we see in Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, NAACP and the like. The more they can keep their people down and dependent, the more they stand to profit. Dr. Jasser and men like Thomas Sowell are so far past the victimhood that is so pervasive in groups like the NAACP and CAIR. It’s refreshing to hear this discourse.
Only good things can come of this now-open dialogue. We cannot assuage our fears of Muslims in traditional garb on airplanes until Muslims themselves begin to admit it’s a Muslim problem and it has to be addressed in their community – fighting the extremists and destroying the Islamic theo-political ideology.
The Runaway Slave, C.L. Bryant and his documentary crew dove into the “One Nation Working Together Rally” in Washington D.C. on October 2nd. The crowd there was made up of liberals, progressives, unions, socialists and communists. C.L. says; “All Americans should run away from the slavery of tyranny toward the blessings of liberty!” He asked this liberal crowd and it’s leaders; “Are you finally free at last?”
The answers will be released with the film in spring of 2011. PLEASE HELP US finish this film with a TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION @ Runaway Slave Movie.
