Population Control, Seven Corpses At A Time

The logic is tortuous, even by victim-disarmer standards: in 1997,
George W. Bush signed legislation amending Texas' restrictive CCW
laws to allow permit holders to carry weapons into churches.
Therefore, according to the gun-grabbers, Dubya is responsible for
the recent Fort Worth church shooting.
Here's the apparent syllogism:
1) Dubya allows Texans to carry weapons into churches in order to
exercise their inalienable right to self-defense.
2) Nobody in that hapless congregation chose to exercise that right,
having apparently absorbed the violent-criminal-friendly message of
the National Council of Churches.
3) Having chosen to abdicate the right of self-defense, as usual the
victims died like sheep when some random wacko shot his way into
their church and opened up.
4) It's Dubya's fault.
As Keanu says: whoa.
We are told by the
London Electronic Telegraph
that the striking feat of illogic above - blamin' Dubya - is being
propounded in part by none other than Vice President Al Gore.
That begins to bring it all into focus.
Folks, Al Gore is a Nazi. That's not hyperbole, it's not a smear, and
it isn't wrong. He's a radical environmentalist and socialist who
promulgates nature-worship. Those things are also what the National
Socialist German Workers' Party stood for. The only significant
disagreement between Gore and the Nazis is that Gore has not,
publicly at least, blamed Jews for urbanization and hence pollution.
Indeed, the 'viros whose banner Gore proudly waves between bouts of
delusion (or waved before his DNC handlers told him ix-nay on the
Unabomber stuff) are far more ambitious than the Nazis. The Nazis
intended to kill a whole bunch of people, and did kill a bunch,
albeit not nearly so many as Stalin or Mao. But they didn't announce
an intention to kill four out of five of all the people on Earth.
That's what the radical environmentalists want. Eighty percent of
everybody: gone. And that's just for starters. The really
serious environmentalists are looking to get ninety-five
percent or more.
It's called "sustainable development." The key concept is that the
Earth can only "sustain" a population of at most one to two billion.
As its share the US might get to keep 50 million - if the 'viros are
feeling generous - out of a population of around 273 million.
So it seems to me it all makes sense. We know from the science of
ecology - ironically enough - that populations of predators expand in
response to the availability of prey. Armed humans are the poorest
kind of prey: only a fool - with which our nations ranks of pundits
are plentifully supplied - could deny at this point that any of our
recent well-publicized massacres would likely have been stopped well
short of their eventual tolls had even one among the intended targets
been prepared, physically and morally, to resist. That is: to shoot
the bastard, or bastards.
(I have to say here that it's just too easy for me to imagine the
shooter spending the two or three days prior to the assault locked in
a room in some government safe house in Texas, dosed crazy with
something like methylphenidate - Ritalin - and tortured
round-the-clock by guys in dog collars waving Bibles, before being
handed a couple handguns and a bunch of magazines and booted from an
unmarked van onto the sidewalk in front of the Wedgwood Baptist
Church - perhaps by some JTF-6-attached Special Forces op fresh from
providing Indonesian Special Forces first-hand instruction in
butchering Christians in their own churches, as Kopassus did a couple
of weeks before the East Timor referendum.)
So far our publicity-generating perpetrators have chosen surprisingly
well: they have picked hunting grounds whose denizens were disarmed
by law (Columbine) or indoctrination in victimhood (pick any,
including Fort Worth). Although, to be fair, when a prospective mass
shooter - or his handlers - picks wrong and gets whacked right out of
the gate..you won't hear about it, except on the Net.
Oh! Bad me! I'm spreading conspiracy theory again (even though I
disbelieve in the viability of conspiracies). Except, it happened a
couple months back, when some cluck chose to begin his murder spree
at a shooting range in California, collecting a couple of .45 slugs -
and no victims - for his pains. But Dan Rather never told you that,
so I guess it never happened.
Back to reality: guns don't cause crime, but victims do cause
predators. When the bunny population explodes, you get fox and coyote
It would be, to say the least, politically unpopular for Al Gore and
his co-religionists to order the American people to start marching
their children into the gas chambers. It would also be, ahem,
somewhat unwise in a nation in which at least 70 million
households contain guns.
So our wise and loving Earth-venerating rulers have, in these
mini-massacres, the means to kill two birds with one stone: they can
further their ends by generating pretexts under which they can
deprive us of our means to resist their dictates.
And they can directly achieve their desired end of population
reduction: five, seven, a dozen at a time.
