With that being said, one week after the largest mass shooting and second largest Islamic terrorist attack in U.S. history, I am deeply disturbed at how our nation, namely political officials, are responding. It is as if the theme is, “we have met the enemy and decided to deny their existence.” We are turning ourselves in knots as we watch the mantra of one Rahm Emanuel evidence itself yet again, “never let a good crisis go to waste.” It never ceases to amaze me how those who have a blanket of armed protection provided to them seek to tell others how to defend themselves.
It is well known that the FBI has nearly 1000 Islamic terrorist investigations ongoing in the United States. And we know that the Islamic State has taken credit for the actions of Omar Mateen, for which he pledged his allegiance to ISIS and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. So the seminal question is this, if Mateen had gone on a rampage through the Pulse club with a sword, knife, machete, or hammers, where would the discussion be one week later? Would the progressive socialist left and their complicit media accomplices be articulating knife control? Or would we be wasting time in our U.S. Congress over insidious legislation that will have no effect on Islamic jihadist activities in America, western civilization?
I must ask, how many of these folks clamoring for bans on semi-automatic rifles, again, a violation of our second amendment rights, have ever read the Explanatory Memorandum of the Muslim Brotherhood? That document was written in 1991 by Mohammed Akram and was uncovered in an FBI raid in the basement of a home in northern Virginia. It concisely lays out the “stealth jihad” goals and objectives, it is an open source document completely translated into English. So why do our elected officials deny this existence of the enemy and obfuscate, pivoting away towards an ideological agenda item, when 49 Americans horrifically lost their lives?
