Shooting in Orlando – A Few Very Basic Thoughts
- Frankly, I did not feel like commenting on this
shooting. Primarily, because I don’t believe that
this event deserves the reaction it got. Yes, sure,
50-100+ innocent people were shot/hurt, but that is
more or less what happens on a daily basis in so
many locations of our planet that I don’t see how
the Orlando shooting would deserve some special
attention (for example, just four days ago
19 Yazidi ladies were burned alive to death in a
cage by Daesh for refusing to have sex with Daesh
fighters). But then I got a ton of emails about
that. And, besides, since the homosexual lobby in
the USA demands special protection for homosexuals,
the massacre in Orlando is a big deal because it is
a perfect illustration of how our masters want us to
Check out this
BBC article: “In
pictures: LGBT parades across Europe“. So “gay”
pride is, apparently, a big deal to our rulers.
Which makes the massacre in Orlando a big deal too.
Clearly the powers that be are intensely preoccupied
with the well-being and safety of homosexuals. Fair
at the very least, let’s make darn sure that we keep
in mind what this massacre has no relationship to:
where the massacre happened was known to be “gay
friendly” and the presumed shooter apparently wanted
to kill homosexuals. But so what? If he has chosen
any other group, vegans, or Latinos, or soccer
players or diabetics, this would really made no
difference to the nature of the massacre or for the
evaluation of the character of the shooter.
Innocent blood is innocent blood. There are not
subcategories for this.
Yes, the shooter apparently call 911 to declare his
allegiance to Daesh and Daesh has, according to
reports, claimed responsibility for the massacre.
So what? Anybody can claim responsibility for
anything, including the
Garden Gnome Liberation Front. I would even
argue that Daesh has nothing to do with Islam either
because Daesh’s relationship to Islam is similar
that of a tumor to a healthy tissue: a lot of common
DNA, for sure, but with some absolutely crucial
differences which makes them mortal enemies.
Turns out that the supposed perpetrator did have a
legal firearm license. But he should not have had
it. He was known to be a wife beater
and he was reportedly mentally unstable.
Under Florida law, both of these conditions
should have resulted in his firearms license been
revoked. In other words, even if this
shooter purchased his guns legally, his license
should have been revoked. When an alcoholic
continues to drive around in his car and ends up
killing somebody, does anybody suggest that cars are
to blame? Of course not. And yet in the case of
mass shootings guns are inevitably blamed for the
violence. So what is the political agenda here?
if this is not about homosexuality, Islam or guns,
what is it about?
is about making us believe that is is about
homosexuality, Islam and guns, of course!
this is just a prefect opportunity or the latest in
an apparently endless series of false flags does not
really matter. What is certain is that the Empire
and its propaganda machine are making maximal use of
this event to convince us that homosexuals deserve
our heartfelt sympathy and that they need some kind
of special protection and that guns and Islam are
truly awful things. Does that sound incredibly
stupid to you?
it does – and that is because it is incredibly
But we are
talking about the country in which
solving a basic math equation is enough to make you
look like a terrorist. So “incredibly stupid”
is exactly what works best.
there is the upcoming election. Sure, Trump comes
across as more anti-Muslim than Hillary. But
Hillary is a rabid gun hater, and she is backed by
Obama. Besides, last year there has been a long
string of mass shooting which were not only rather
bizarre, but which were used by the 1%ers to try to
blame violence on guns and disarm law-abiding
citizens. Does this latest shooting not just look
*perfect* for the Obama administration?
probably never find out if Omar Mir Seddique Mateen
was just a a “lone wolf” with some real sympathies
for Daesh, whether he truly was an isolated
psychopath, or whether he was lovingly nurtured by
one of the other US 3 letter agencies and then
carefully planted at the right time and place (he
was a “person of interest” for the FBI).
lie of them all is the one that is implied: if we
get rid of all guns and if we get rid of all
Muslims, then we will be much safer. That is utter
nonsense. Not only because guns and Muslims are not
the problem, but because it is simply impossible to
be safe! There have always been terrorist attack,
and there will always be. Today it was a Muslim
with a gun. Yesterday it was a
Japanese with sarin gas. Tomorrow it could be
anybody anywhere, armed to the teeth by illegally
purchased guns (like in the Charlie Hebdo attack –
the French total ban on guns did not help one bit)
or armed with a far more deadly weapon (say a common
pathogen like E.coli, a legally available toxic
agent like Cyanide or even a Water Hemlock extract
to poison, say, a school’s cafeteria). Explosives
are very easy to manufacture and can be delivered
anywhere a car can drive. In terms of terrorism –
where there is a will, there will be a means.
thing about guns: not only are homosexuals usually
known to be easy victims (this is the reason why
cowards love to attack them – they usually don’t
fight back), but under Florida law it is illegal to
bring a firearm into bar. So bar, just as schools,
are legal “gun free zones” which makes them ideal
for mass shootings and makes it possible for one
single shooter to shoot 50 or more people. In
Florida, these “gun free zones” are pretty much the
only places where you can hope to shoot a lot of
people safely, everywhere else the chances of
somebody shooting right back at you are rather high
as there are no less than 1,477,675 people legally
licensed to carry a weapon in Florida (the highest
figure in the USA). Concealed weapon carriers
include all races, all age groups, males and females
from any and all social groups. This is why it has
become rather dangerous to start shooting people in
Florida, because chances are somebody nearby will
shoot right back at you. That is a paradox –
“gun free zones” have turned into honeypots for all
sorts of mass shooters. That is also something
the imperial media will never tell you.
definition, terrorism is about terror. About fear.
About emotions. Those who use terrorism want us to
freak out, to lose our ability to think logically.
They want us to listen to our emotions, and only
some of our emotions. So each time some atrocity
occurs and the imperial propaganda machine starts to
hammer us with ‘special news flashes’ you know that
they are trying to freak you out. Don’t let them do
this to you. Don’t let them disconnect your brain.
This latest atrocity in Orlando proves absolutely
nothing and it only means something if you are
willing to give it a meaning. I categorically
refuse to do so. For me, 50+ innocent people died
yesterday, and that is simply disgusting. But it is
also meaningless. To “respond” to that pseudo-event
with any kind of “policy” is the pinnacle of
stupidity and hypocrisy.
resistance has to be first and foremost a resistance
for our minds and souls. We have to think and react
as we do, not as “they” want us to. If we pay
attention to their non-events, then we will miss our
real events, especially our victories over them!
And, make no mistake, they are getting weaker while
we are getting stronger, even if their media says
otherwise and if our victories are never reported.
My hope is
that the next time when the imperial propaganda
machine presents us all with a tear-jerker “outrage”
or “terrorist attack” nobody will email me to ask my
opinion about it because none of us will care very
much (even if it happens close to our homes). I
hope that we will be focused on the real horrors of
our times, like the
40 million Americans who have been victims of child
sexual abuse or the
45 million of Americans who are currently living
below the poverty line. Terrorism is really an
illusion created by our rulers to blind us to our
condition. Ignore it. Keep your attention focused
