Let me tell you something, Piers. The fact that my grandparents and great grandparents in Europe didn’t fear that is why they’re now ashes in Europe.
Today on Morning Joe there was a segment touching on the latest school shooting in California.
Rather than debunk the gun control arguments that I’ve already hit, I instead would like to touch on something else.
Twitchy found something interesting online concerning the school shooting in California yesterday, namely history:
If Brian Oliver shoots up the school, i swear to god. I have like 4 classes with him! #homeschoolplease

Note the date, December 15th. There is more.
The young lady in question’s tweets were seen and reported to the school. She got into trouble for them, but a month later…
The shooter targeted and hit a 16-year-old student in the classroom of 28, and missed firing on another student he named, Youngblood said. The wounded victim was airlifted to the hospital, where the 16-year-old remains in critical, but stable, condition.
And her reaction?
I think AllyWho and Doty425 example shows a basic truth: When a person makes the treat of a violent act, take it seriously and act accordingly or people end up hurt.
Which brings us to Israel:
For a long time people on the left have pooh poohed the threats against Israel, yet time and time again the foes of the nation have said they want to destroy the state, time and time again they have honored those who have killed innocents and time and time again they have pushed the cultural imperative of Jews as lesser beings to their young.
Horowitz …‘Okay, I’ll put it to you this way. I am a Jew. The head of Hezbollah has said that he hopes that we will gather in Israel so he doesn’t have to hunt us down globally. For or Against it?
MSA member: For it.
Here is the video
and as Ruby Slippers blog said at the time this is a woman from America. She is going to an American college (much like Muslim Brotherhood member and Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi) yet this is where she is.
The point I’m trying to make is this, whether it is a school kid talking about a hit list, or a guy threatening Murder over new gun laws when someone is talking violence you have to take them seriously, any Sicilian knows this.
When that talk is coming from actual states, leaders of said states and a population as a whole, it’s even more so.
So the next time a person on the left decides to berate you for defending Israel or steps taken by the Jewish state to defend itself, remind them of Bryan Oliver or better yet remind them of James Yeager and ask if they would feel safe with them?
