The reality is that evil exists and we will never legislate it away. Bad things will always happen. Evil people will do evil things. We saw evil in Charleston. We saw evil yesterday. Unfortunately, too many are too blind to evil. Those who have eyes to see can see the evil in Planned Parenthood decapitating children and sending their heads in the mail making sure their eyes are closed. Those who have eyes to see can see the evil in the collapse of families and the rise of dysfunctional young people without a relationship with one parent or the other.
Evil exists. It exists in degrees. It is sometimes obvious and sometimes not. But it is here in the world. The only cure for evil is Jesus Christ. As our society becomes more secular and hostile to the things of faith, it will only get worse. Only the acts of evil will more and more come not in the form of violence but the in the form of conduct deemed acceptable and beneficial thought it is not.
Evil is always going to exist. It is never going to be exterminated by us. It will not be legislated away. But it will be exterminated on that final day. Until then all of us should work to be better neighbors with each other and those who have eyes to see and ears to hear should not shy away from pointing out the barbarous when the world itself turns a blind eye.
He’s right about that. When something happens like what happened yesterday, which was horrible thing, regardless of the motivation; the liberal progressive left wants to move to regulate everything. This is not the solution, the solution is to change the hearts and minds of the people of America. Now, personally, I find all of this talk about a Christian revival fruitless. I believe that the revival ship has sailed and judgement is coming to America.
MONETA, Va. (AP) — The latest on the fatal on-air shooting of two TV station employees in central Virginia (all times local):
An official has identified the suspect in the fatal on-air shooting of a reporter and cameraman from a TV station in central Virginia.
Becky Coyner with dispatch and records at the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office says the suspect is 41-year-old Vester Lee Flanagan II, of Roanoke.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe has said the suspect’s arrest is imminent. He says police are in pursuit on the interstate, and he says the suspect is believed to be a disgruntled employee of the station, WDBJ-TV.
Update #2: It is being reported on twitter:
BREAKING NEWS: Alleged #WDBJ shooter Vester Flanagan has shot himself along Interstate 66 in Virginia…
Looks like the Democrats or at least progressives over at Crooks and Liars, which used to be a respectable left wing blog, at one time; are playing the ol’ “you ain’t a real nigga black man, if you are a conservative and get on fox news” game. Which is, as far as this writer is concerned, a bigoted statement. 😡
First, let’s watch the video, shall we?
You would think that this would be a normal video; which if you are being intellectually honest, is correct right? Not according to Heather over at Crooks and Liars:
Yep, it’s time for another installment of self-loathing. This time, we get a double dose with Fox ‘News’ resident Uncle Ruckus, Charles Payne and returning champion, Minister Jonathan Gentry who are both appalled at the Black Lives Matter movement.
I googled “uncle ruckus“, she’s basically calling these two, house negroes. 😯 😮
Do you need any further explanation as to why I quit voting for democrats?
This weekend, North Korea significantly increased its forward deployed artillery units and sent around 50 attack submarines out to sea. The submarine movement is especially interesting, because it’s not easy for North Korea to deploy subs; they are poorly maintained and expensive for the resource-starved regime to operate. In deploying so many simultaneously, North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, clearly wants to make a point.And to some degree, young Kim’s submarine wager has already paid off. To counter the North’s deployments, the U.S. and South Korea canceled a military exercise originally scheduled to run until this Thursday. The North has also managed to get the South to the negotiating table at the Panmunjom “truce’ village.
The Norks are acting out, because the South Korean have set up loudspeakers, blasting anti-North Korean propaganda. Now, I am not a Nork Fan boy ok? Not by a long shot. But, if Mexico decided to set up speakers at our border and had them blasting anti-America propaganda; wouldn’t you think Americans and our Government would be a bit pissed? I’d say so.
If anything, the President should call South Korea’s President and tell HER to either stop the broadcasts with the speakers, or we will be removing ALL military personnel and we will wish them luck.
This is nothing like the Korean War of old. That was an invasion of the North; this is the south trying to provoke a reaction out of the North and they’re about to get it too.
Anyone that thinks anything other than this is either a misinformed person or a straight up neoconservative hawk.
Now, do not misunderstand me here; Communism is bad. But, putting loudspeakers at the border is not going to do anything to stop it. All it is going to truly do is cause a confrontation and I am thinking that is what this President of South Korea wants. If she is not really careful she might just get it. If she thinks that America is going to come to her rescue, when she gets in over her head; she is going to be in for a very big surprise. President Obama is no Harry Truman, not by a longshot.
This comes via Jazz Shaw, (who is too big of a coward to write under his real name) who once called me a “racist digbag” on twitter:
We’ve heard more than our share of complaints about the fact that Hot Air generally holds open registration periods which limit the pool of commenters and that there are strict rules on what can’t be said in the comments on penalty of the ban hammer. (Excessively foul language, threats of violence or to the life of public officials, etc.) Open enrollment always winds up bringing in some people who are only here to troll, but it’s actually our commenters who are faster and better than the editors in identifying them and they are generally removed. By the same token we wind up with any number of people who join up and vigorously espouse some views which run directly contrary to the general, more conservative tone of the site. But as long as they follow the above noted rules, they stick around and get into all sorts of verbal firefights with the rest of the commentariat.
The truth is that if you are a warmongering, Neoconservative, establishment Republican, Israel loving, Bush Loving, Wilsonian, Trotskyite — you will do very well there. But, if you happen to disagree with that viewpoint, you will not last long there. Just ask the supporters of Ron Paul how long that they lasted there, just ask the Paleoconservatives, of whom I agree with, how long they lasted there. Better yet, ask Ed Morrissey about the Libertarian, who wrote of the errors of Wilsonian foreign policy there and basically was never asked to write there again, because it pissed off “the powers that be.”
The truth is, if you do not toe the line and you dare speak out against people like the Kristols and the Podhoretz’s and the rest of the neocon Klan (heh…) you will not last long there at all. Believe you me; I know, I have been there and done that and got booted, because I DARED to challenge the inane, Trotskyite b.s. that flows from that site like water.
The sickening part? They pawn themselves off as libertarians! Sorry, no, they are not a libertarian blog. Lew Rockwell is a libertarian! Hotair.com is a neocon, establishment Republican blog with some window dressing.
