My Thoughts on Uvalde

Anther shooting, and the left is predictably dancing in the victim’s blood before the scene is even cleared or the families of the dead are notified. It’s so predictable: calls for gun control that would not have mattered. The current calls are for universal background checks (in other words, gun registration). This young man who did the shooting had a clear record, would have passed a background check, and a proposed BG check law would have done nothing.

No, every shooting and its victims are simply political fodder to advance a political agenda. The left doesn’t give a rip about the victims, except to the extent that they can be used to advance that agenda, truth and facts be damned. As we proved just this week on this very blog, the left doesn’t care about facts, logic, or the truth.

To debate the left about gun control is a complete waste of time, because they won’t listen. So I just won’t do it. You want gun control? No. Your move.

No, what I want to talk about is social media’s responsibility for this shooting. He was a troubled child that grew into a troubled young man. The clues were there, but as often happens in these cases, no one said anything. Word is, the shooter posted pictures of his guns to social media, and said that a shooting was coming. He actually told one woman it was coming.

In the hours leading up to the killings, the shooter reportedly showed off his guns to an LA-based woman via his Instagram page, taunting that he was ‘about to do’ something.

When the woman asked what, he said: ‘I’ll tell you before 11.’ He began shooting at noon.

The school had purchased technology to monitor social media, but it apparently didn’t work.

So now we come to the point I am trying to make. I have been tossed into Facebook jail dozens of times. Sometimes within minutes of posting something that didn’t agree with their leftist viewpoints. So how can a person post threats to carry out a mass shooting, and Instagram (the site where the threatening posts were made) didn’t notice?

The technology exists for social media companies to monitor what people post. We know it, because they have done it for the past several years. Why don’t they report these things? The only possible answer is that they don’t because they WANT more shootings so the dead victims can be used to advance their agenda.

I’d further like to know the citizenship of both the perp and all the victims. Some media was quick to announce the perp was a citizen (gee, I wonder why they did that), but given the demographics of the town and its proximity to the border, I have no reason to believe that unless it can be independently verified.

If he wasn’t a citizen, his prompt deportment at time of arrival would’ve spared yesterday’s victims. As to the victims, any here illegally should’ve been deported promptly instead of attending a US school, and they too would not have been present to be gunned down. Cause and effect writ large.

Then there are the pictures of the perp in girls clothing that have been circulating. More evidence the guy was psychologically screwed, but of course with transfags now being a sacred cow of politics, no one was going to risk calling him out for being a fuckup that needed a closer Iook over unpredictable behavior. Oh, amd SSRI’s, anyone? Look at the widely circulated picture of the perp and note the dead eyes with nothing going on behind them. We won’t get any insight on that, most assuredly.

Finally, I want to know where this moron got the funds to buy that rifle and scope, and the body armor the media was so breathlessly informing the masses he was wearing. Fair amount of coin wrapped up in that setup. Could an 18 year old have earned it all himself by working? Yeah. But I can’t help suspecting he was supplied by a third party with, shall we say, a specific intent and desired outcome. Of course, we will never be told the truth about that either.

Yet again, this event has the appearance of being made to order for political gain. And it is to laugh how the school district hastily announced their sizeable investment in security measures (including the social media “monitoring” technology, among other things). Hey guys, that shit worked so well that maybe you need to cut it all from the budget and refund the money mis-spent on it to local taxpayers. Here’s a tip: don’t go bragging about stuff you did that clearly didn’t work.

The real solution here is to ban public schools. Remove the target rich environment, that also happens to be the venue where kids are molded into mental defectives by fucked up teachers with a fucked up agenda, all directed by a fucked up government. That might get us something worthwhile. But we all know no actual useful solutions will ever be implemented, much less considered.

Oh, and fuck joe biden

So an 18 year old has around $3500 in gear (H/t-BCE) and got past school security without any problems?

This could have been 100% prevented but no school district or state govt has the will. One entrance to the school only with metal detectors and armed resource officers. No one gets in without a scan and random secondary searches like airports. One school exit only, with armed school resource officers. All students and all staff are scanned without exception. All for not having the will.

When I was a teacher, we looked at this, and it is unworkable. The high school where I worked had around 1800 students. Three screening lines means 600 students per line have to be screened in the hour or so from when the school opens to when first bell sounds. A student would have to go through security every six seconds, on average. At that point, all you have accomplished is to move the targets from the classroom to the long lines out front that are awaiting screening.
So you have the cost of three magnetometers, three xray machines, and at least six screeners. An initial cost of about $40,000 in equipment and another half a million or so in annual salary costs. For one school. Now multiply that times the twenty or so schools in the district. That is a large bill that I am not sure taxpayers would want to pay.

Spot on. Same as airport security theatre only having moved the target. Now, instead of hijacking a plane to use as a missile, just roll up in front of the terminal (past the affirmative action cop “policing” the area) with a vehicle bomb, and take out scores of people waiting for their TSA grab-assing. Yeah, that solved the problem sure enough.

These are not generally preventable events; unless the perp goes blabbing about it in advance such that someone rats him out before he acts. That would appear to have been possible in this present case, if someone had chosen to make an issue of the apparent early warning signs. No one did, so here we are.

But that has a downside too, in that it leads to a snitch society not unlike East Germany where basically everyone was an intelligence operative turning in even family and friends for perceived offenses against the state. It’s not as though a system of mass induced paranoia like that could ever be misused, right? Do we really want to live in a place where everyone is under suspicion at any time, and an anonymous tipster – quite conceivably with bad intent – can get you fucked (and dead) in a raid staged by roid raging cops or dirty feds, based on bogus information? Because that’s exactly where snitch society ends up.

People have to accept that life itself entails a certain amount of risk, pain, loss and tragedy. Trying to remake society in contravention of human nature has never worked and never will. It is a manifestation of the “we have to do something about (x)” mentality. No, we don’t. Some problems simply have no workable solution that doesn’t make things even worse.

Besides, in a society as sick and disconnected to reality as ours has become, everyone should be expecting more of this shit, as our culture cannot help but produce defective assholes in quantity. Develop and promote a healthy and happy culture, and we’d see a lot less of this. But this country will not bother itself to stop forcing the promotion of dysfunction, degeneracy, and delusion, so we will go right on reaping what has been sown. Buckle up.

The only answer is, an intelligently-designed security system which we all know isn’t the objective here so we’ll never get it.
It may not be ideal but I got a look at something worth thinking about which is the stuff the Israelis have adopted for similar, just more extreme reasons. They’re not all lovey-dovey about the 2A, in Israel they don’t seem to own guns, it’s just that the government gives the privilege of carrying a gun to a lot more folks.
After the Ma-Lot (going by memory with the spelling) massacre in I think 1972, they realized the only way to stop massacres was to have people with guns all over the place. Can’t possibly afford to hire that many armed guards so just have to make armed guards out of all the people who are already there. That’s what they do, I think our ideal would be to remove restrictions on gun ownership (largely) and certainly to remove restrictions on “no gun” zones.
When I visited there over 10 years ago, in most places especially in the cities, you’re surrounded by people carrying a holstered pistol or carrying a long gun with at least one magazine. I don’t think most of them are what we would consider terribly great with their weapons quals but you don’t need that, you just need to have some armed people around all over so that any “flare up” will immediately have some folks who can return fire right then and there. They don’t have to be experts.
I’d like to see us remove all our restrictions and simply to encourage proper levels of marksmanship and tactical training.

The same old arguments get made in opposition to school carry as are made against concealed carry. They don’t want to debate. They don’t want answers. Dead kids are just a path to the socialist paradise They want to establish.
That’s why I don’t engage them much any longer.

Issue with this plan is that Israel is an ethnically homogenous country with a strong militant streak, coupled with a deep seated persecution complex that gives their people an attitude of “it’s us against the world” which in turn primes the pooulation for such measures being actively taken.

Further – and in a prototypical double standard versus what we could do here – they can get away with doing intrusive security checkpoints that include racial profiling as part of the official security program. Can you imagine that bring run here? They didn’t do it for air travel after the worst terrorist attack in US history; instead we got TSA checking grandma’s depends so as not to offend those we know are prone to blowing shit up. They won’t do it now for this, either.

Any such program instituted under the current regime would simply target white males (even without probable cause) as the source of all evil, meaning yesterday’s perp would not have been interdicted anyway, because looking at him before hand and identifying him as a problem would’ve been racist.

Yes, there are some measures that could be taken. But they are either fundamentally incompatible with our present culture, or tend to run afoul of the constitution (as if that really matters).

Most importantly, those benefiting politically from these events don’t want them prevented or even stopped mid-stream. These are just opportunities to be maximally exploited in pursuit of further arrogation of power to the state (read: left).

I know what you mean. I was flying out of BWI in 2002 after attending a counter terrorism conference. I had a DHS identification badge around my neck. I was pulled out of line by TSA for special screening. While I was getting extensively searched, three different guys wearing keffiyeh’s that looked like Pizza Hut table cloths went through with barely a glance.

When I asked the TSA agent about that, he replied that by not checking obvious Arabs and checking white guys instead, they were being unpredictable. He reasoned that a terrorist wouldn’t make it so obvious, so checking white guys was the better plan.

you: Why don’t they report these things? The only possible answer is that they don’t because they WANT more shootings so the dead victims can be used to advance their agenda.

that and they know most of the tards making these threats are left minded…most of us, as in patriots, don’t make threats like that…
