Oh What a Relief It Is

The San Bernadino Islamist terrorist killings are not a joke. But what conservative can help feeling a sense of relief that the killings were not, as Hillary Clinton tweeted, "gun violence" but a simple terror attack by Muslim terrorists infected with the jihad bug.

It's telling, isn't it, that liberals go into full right-wing extremism, Christian terrorism mode when some mentally-ill loner shoots up a crowd, but go into full non-judgmental mode when Muslims are involved. Like President Obama this morning.
"At this stage, we do not yet know why this terrible event occurred,” Obama said during remarks at the White House. He added: “It is possible this was terrorist-related, but we don’t know. It is also possible this was workplace related.”
Oh yeah.

Conservatives have known for ages what is going on here. If you are President Obama or any community-organizer liberal your existential fight is with conservatives, Christians, racist white males and evil Koch Brothers. Radical Muslims, jihad, Israel, Christians in the Middle East are really not that important. And anyway, with all foreign policy questions and non-white groups, there is the question of racism and colonialism. And we wouldn't want to risk even the teeniest taint of racism and colonialism.

When some white guy lets loose with a gun, on the other hand, liberals are thinking: It begins; the white racist sexist insurgency against our rule. So of course it is important to stamp it out right now before the spark develops into a fire. And the first thing to do is to disarm the white racist homophobes before they develop into a militia.

If you think this analysis of liberal motivations suggest a liberal paranoia, know that rulers are always interested in disarming the opposition. It's not really paranoia, it's just taking care of business. You never know when a head of rebellion might develop, but it certainly doesn't hurt to make it really difficult for the would-be rebels to get weapons.

In Anglo-Saxon history the disarming of the populace all started with the Tudors. From p.47 in Kevin D. Williamson's The End is Near:
They began by depriving the barons and other regional powers of their private military forces... They then set about tearing down the castles and fortresses of the individual lords.
The French did the same thing in the 17th century. That made it easier for the French Revolution to succeed because the nobility had all been concentrated in the capital, and couldn't appeal to their vassals and peasants for support when the Enlightenment came knocking on the doors of kingly power.

But notice what our liberal rulers do permit and condone. They condone their educated youth and its "peaceful protests" at its universities. They have nothing to say about criminal gangs of blacks and Hispanics operating in our big cities. They apologize for "workplace violence" when committed by Muslims.  In other words they condone shows of force when the demonstrations are made by people that they judge to be their regime supporters.

Here is something to think about. The San Bernadino killings were done at a local government office facility. The front page of the New York Post on Friday December 3, 2015 shows an African American woman wounded on the ground and an East Asian woman kneeling by her side. The killers are killing regime supporters.

I'd say that when Muslim killers are killing Democratic-voting minorities then it's time for the liberal astronauts to radio "Houston we have a problem" back to Debbie Wasserman Schultz at Democratic Party HQ. Because if you can't protect your own government employee supporters when they plead "is it safe", what's the point of your patron/client politics? The whole point of clientism is for the clients to find a safe space within the power perimeter of the patron.

As the Marxists would say: Eventually capitalism liberalism will collapse from its own internal contradictions.
