Another aspect of the Benghazi debacle….

We all are coming to realize that the Øbama regime displayed remarkable stupidity in the way they covered up the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and three others in Benghazi.   Clearly, despite Øbama’s false outrage at debate #2, the coverup was clearly political, designed to keep the story suppressed and the blame off of Øbama prior to the election.  The facts and the timelines support this.  We now know what they knew and when they knew it.

But consider another side effect of this coverup: did the focusing of blame on an otherwise completely unknown anti Muslim movie to cover the regime’s incompetence in an election season spark all of the violent protests in the Middle East and beyond?  So what was the real trigger?

As far as I can determine, the offending movie was posted on YouTube back on July 1, 2012 and nothing happened.  No violence, no comments, no nothing.  It didn’t go viral on the internet.  Nothing.  Then the preezy and his minions use it as a scapegoat to cover their incompetence.  Then the violence begins.  Øbama and his mouthpieces continue to blame the movie for his fecklessness for the next two weeks, even apologizing at the UN, and the violence increases.

If there is one thing we know about Muslim outrage, it is that it can be turned on like a light switch.  So why the apparent delay?

I submit to you that there was no delay: nobody knew or cared about the movie until Øbama and his mouthpieces came out and put it out as the reason for their lousy support for our ambassador.  That is when the troubles began.  All the violence started after the preezy blamed the “protest” on the movie, not before.  A look at Wikipedia on “reactions to Innocence of Muslims” show the violent protest, injuries and deaths as occurring on or after 9/11/12.

Did the Øbama regime scheme to use the hyper sensitivity of Muslims to cause the Middle East to blow up as it did to lend credence to their fabricated story, or was it just more rank incompetence?   It really doesn’t matter at this point, as the effects are the same: people are dead, property destroyed and the image of the United States further besmirched by the clowns in the White House and the State Department.

It is my contention that the Øbama administration is to blame for the rash of post Benghazi violence and deaths in their haste to cover up the mess in Benghazi.  The inescapable fact is that they bear full responsibility for all the collateral damage, both political and in lives and property.

Øbama says the buck stops with him.  Let him prove it.

Occupy protesters get early start on May Day rioting

In San Francisco last night, members of the #occupy movement got an early start on protests scheduled across the nation today.  May 1 is celebrated by “workers’ groups” tied to left wing nuts, communists and labor union bullies in part by gathering with black bloc friends to break windows, spray paint business exteriors and vandalize cars.

English Riots: Coming to a city near you?

I just read a superb article about the causes of the riots in England. It is titled “Years of liberal dogma have spawned a generation of amoral, uneducated, welfare dependent, brutalized youngsters.”  It is worth a read.

Social media: Basis for new criminal activity, or outlet for old?

Recently, there has been an upsurge of social media fueled uprisings across the globe.  Depending on your perspective, they are either good (presumably the “Arab Spring”) or bad (the flash mob riots sweeping this and other countries).

Given the recent senseless,”flash mob” violence mentioned by Jim on the show, you have to ask: how far removed are we from A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess (movie by Stanley Kubrick)?  Are these just disaffected youths or something more sinister?

Consider this: remember the “demonstrations” (read it: riots) against the various G8/20 and World Trade meetings, such as in Toronto last year?  Or a couple of years ago in London?  If you listen, you will find that these protest/riots were organized by leftist groups, and anarchist groups organized by various socialist groups such as the Workers World Party and the Socialist Party.

Given the anarchist tendencies of these groups, is it not entirely implausible that they will use social media to motivate and enrage the “useful idiots” that the liberal government of Britain have generated?  How do you know who is sending out the call to violence in the streets of London.  Who is organizing (community organizing?) the flash mob riots in this country?  Does anyone know?  Can anyone find out?

Recent articles in several British publications, as well as PM Cameron, blame the various types of social media (Facebook, Twitter, BlackBerry Messenger or BBW), for allowing the hoodlums to coordinate their activities, report the locations of the police and arrange distractions, something the owners of the social media outlets are fighting tooth and nail (remember that the founder of Facebook is a big Øbama supporter  and social media was a big factor in Øbama’s fundraising and election).  A rather large question that looms is this: will the same lefties that will defend the First Amendment free speech aspect of social media in the face of a shutdown be as quick to defend the Second Amendment rights of gun owners?  They are both tools that can be used for good or abused for evil, but the former is loved by the left and the latter is despised, so we know how the media and the Democrats will view this.

As an interesting and related aside: Remember the Los Angeles riots where South Korean businessmen successfully defended their livelihood with pistols and shotguns, while pictures of business owners in a disarmed England show them standing in front of looted and burned establishments?  Britons can’t do this as they have been completely neutered, ownership of guns for personal defense being forbidden in Great Britain.  Note the rapid rise of community vigilante groups to resist the riots the police can’t or won’t put down.  Also note the rise in sales of baseball bats.  Think American baseball has gained sudden popularity in Great Britain?  If so, I have some Arizona oceanfront property for sale at a great price!

It is one thing to express your opinion online, but another thing entirely to use the media for criminal intent.  Will liberals be able to differentiate the two?

French “Vandals” Fire Up 372 Cars

Nice. The article is written like this is a normal in France. Maybe it is.

Cars are burned fairly regularly in France and the image of vehicles in flames in poor suburbs became symbolic of riots in 2005 when angry youths set fire to thousands of cars.

There is usually an increase in the number of cars torched on New Year’s Eve compared to other days of the year.

“The night was relatively calm, without notable incident, there were very few direct clashes with the security forces,” said a spokesman for the national police.

Relatively calm? Geez.

Of course, not one word about arrests, or even if they tried to arrest any of these criminals. They reported it like a sporting event. Maybe if they put these criminals in jail and make them pay restitution, this fairly regular activity would stop?
