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?
Man, oh, man. This man is really starting to scare the crap out of me with this appeasement horse squeeze.
And on top of that, he never even answered the girl’s question. Believe me, Indians know EXACTLY what Jihad is, as its definition has been written in the streets…in blood…for decades. If anyone knows what Jihad is, it’s certainly the Indians. Unfortunately, our Commander in Chief can’t bring himself to admit it himself.
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.
Here’s a portion of the “Action Alert” item from CAIR’s website:
CAIR Action Alert #625:
Juan Williams says airline passengers in ‘Muslim garb’ make him ‘nervous’
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 10/20/10) — CAIR is calling on American Muslims and other people of conscience to ask National Public Radio (NPR) to address analyst Juan Williams’ statement that airline passengers in “Muslim garb” make him “nervous.”
During an appearance Monday on Fox’s “O’Reilly Factor,” Williams backed Bill O’Reilly’s recent claim that “Muslims killed us on 9/11″ and then said: “[W]hen I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”
