What Do Jesus, Rifle Scopes and Dead Terrorists Have in Common? Trijicon
Townhall.com ^ | January 24, 2010 | Doug Giles

Posted on 01/24/2010 6:37:19 AM PST by Kaslin

In the latest edition of political correctness gone wild, Mikey Weinstein and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation are droning on about scope manufacturer Trijicon putting Scripture references on their gun optics that our troops use to kill Muslim maniacs. They think a biblical citation will offend our opposition and be used as a recruiting tool for terrorist tools.

This politically correct, anti-Christian military “watch dog” is the same group of wizards that didn’t catch Nidal Malik Hasan’s “SoA” (Soldier of Allah ref) on his military business card and claim that somehow Hasan felt harassed by non-Muslim military meanies into killing our troops at Fort Hood. How sweet.

Yep, the overly sensitive ones at MRFF are very concerned that an obscure Scripture reference built into the serial number in tiny, wittle print on the base of Trijicon scopes will affront Achmed the Terrorist. That would be the same Achmed who screams “Allahu Akbar!” before he lights his penis on fire at 30,000 feet.

Call me crazy, but I’d think that the most odious aspects of Trijicon’s optics, if I were a terrorist, would not be the murky Bible references but the following ...

• Trijicon’s self-luminous aiming systems that have been battle-tested by those who protect and defend the USA around the globe—rightfully earning Trijicon the reputation of having the most sophisticated and dependable deadly optics on the planet. Yep, Trijicon has united long-range accuracy with instantaneous shot placement like no other. Now ... if I were part of the Taliban, that would tick me off more than JHN.8:12 on a sight rail would. Fo’ shizzle, my nizzle.

• Another thing that would irk me if I were a “Man Made Disaster” (or whatever Napolitano calls terrorists) more than John 3:16 could ever hope to would be Trijicon’s Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight™ (ACOG). Why would the ACOG get under my skin? Well, it’s because this little gadget provides “instinctive” target acquisition and increased hit potential in all lighting conditions. That’s way offensive!

• Another thing that would really get me PO’ed if I were an al-Qaeda op is the Bindon Aiming Concept™ (BAC). Y’know ... aiming with both eyes open! This crap gives the USA a far superior sense of balance and a wider field-of-view. Indeed, the combination of these benefits with a magnified Trijicon sight gives our troops a considerable advantage over their targets. And we all know how unfair that is to Islamic radicals.

Another thing that I’d consider ruder than the vague verses hidden out of view on Trijicon’s sighting system if I were a suicide bomber would be the .223, .308 and .50 BMG bullets that actually come out of the gun barrel and devastate my vital organs. That stuff would get me really pissy. So, MRFF … when are we going to ban bullets for their bellicosity toward poor Muslim terrorists?

Yep, thanks to the PC pressure MRFF applied to our already bound and gagged military wizards, the brass inside the Beltway have come to conclude that if our troops use Trijicon’s optics marked with a reference to the gospel of Mark that al-Qaeda and the Taliban will get mad, go crazy and view our engagement as a holy war.

Uh … let me help you a little bit. These crazy SOBs can’t get any madder. I think at this stage of the game everything we do ticks them off. For example, in their minds: Bible code on a scope = they wanna kill us! Heidi Montag gets a boob job! Argh! We must die! Conan gets cancelled! No soup for us! Pat Boone wears white after Labor Day! Damn Americans! I kill you!

Additionally, the war that we are fighting with implacable Islam—the one which they started—has always been, in their view, a holy war; we’re the one’s who are still pretending it isn’t!

Here’s what I recommend: Being the anything-but-PC pundit that I am, I say we do the opposite of what the PC sheeple suggest we do. Here’s what I think we ought to try:

1. Trijicon renames their ACOG optics to GRTMS, the “Get Ready to Meet Satan” scope.

2. We put the image of Jesus in the scope with his finger pointing up to where the bullet will impact the target.

3. We rename the M4 to 72VP, which is short for “72 Virgins? Puh-lease!”

Finally, I’d like to thank all the patriots at Trijicon for the amazing optics they have provided for hunters, law enforcers and our outstanding military men and women, as well as their commitment, as a company, to Jesus Christ. I’ve got to confess, I have never owned a Trijicon scope and have been a Leupold fan for many years. However, in light of the hell the boys at Trijicon are going through because of their faith, my three new rifles that are currently scopeless will now all be topped with Trijicons. And I suggest, America, that you show them some love and do the same thing with all your rifles that need some glass.

If we can’t have Jesus Rifles...How about Bacon Bullets. Hollow point rounds with the point filled with hard wax mixed with Bacon Grease. That would strike real fear in to the Hadji’s.

I think it's great. I hope Trijicon refuses to take that off there scopes and whatever else they sell to the military. I'm sick to death of these PC numskulls, bullying the rest of us into going along with there stupid petty ideas. First off, if they hadn't tattled on Trijicon like a bunch of little school kids, the terrorist would never know. How many of the terrorists read the bible? How would anyone that hadn't been told and never read the bible know what JN3:16 mean? We are at WAR, duh. You don't think that shooting and killing a terrorist isn't infuriating them? Who cares if they get there panties in a bunch. The madder they get, the more mistakes they will make, duh.

I think they are all crazy. The first sign of insanity is making the same mistakes over and over again and expecting a different result. They ignore the Nidal the terrorist and we have 13 soldiers dead because of them. It looks like they are about to make the same mistake again. And it will cost someone or somebodies there lives.

Same crap that's been going on in Israel for decades. We force them into making nice with the Palestinian and just as soon as they have some peace treaty signed the Pales start killing Israelis again. You can't make peace with bullies, with people who believe that you either convert or die and the ends justifies the means.

They are my favorite self-luminous aiming system. They need to be more explicit, but my suggestions would get me banned even here (NO profanity, NO personal attacks, NO racism or violence in posts). The biggest recruiting tool out there seems to be weak tool in the White House.

Yup, off to get one for my new DPMS LR308. I’d get two but I will need to buy some ammo too.

I say NO.

We WON'T take the bible verses off of the Trijicon scopes.

We'll put them on EVERY piece of fighting equipment in our arsenal.

AND...

We need to CRUSADE against these terrorist muzzies with EVERY bullet dipped in pig fat or hog blood.

Of course, they'd probably lose their military contracts, which I assume are worth big bucks. But what are big bucks compared to the love of Jesus and knowing that what you're doing is just what Jesus would do....

I bought a SOCOM M1A a year ago. Which Trijicon scope should I get? This PC garbage has finally got me off the dime. Besides getting my gun outfitted I can send a message to the PC police.

The group mamed in the article have been successful in getting Australia, New Zealand ordering kits to remove those innocuous markings...It gives their troops something to do...Time to take names.. Any USMC,or Army company CO that ridgedly enforces this dictum in their command once there’s a change in administration should get the boot because they’re idealogs and their judgement couldn’t be trusted in combat. And that should apply to the “Aussies” and New Zealanders as well. For a scientific argument about the causes of Global warming check out

It wasn’t some idiot muzzie who kicked up this fuss, it was MICHAEL WEINSTEIN, from the very dishonestly named, “Military Religious Freedom Foundation”.

http://wwww.mrff.org

Many parts of his dishonest page distract from his actual aim (war on Christians); seeing all these aged Constitution scrolls and other Americana you half expect that Ben Franklin will stroll out with buckle shoes, powdered wig, and half-moon glasses, but I asssssuuuure you he is all about stamping on the bibles of US military people:

He was a USAF J.A.G. puke who worked —of all people— for Ronald Reagan, then made some bucks in the private sector suing folks for Ross Perot. Then he retired at from 2006 and has for the past 4 years been waging Secular Jihad against men who treacherously fight muslim folks who throw acid on girls and say Jews are monkeys (don’t ask me).

Sounds crazy huh? He’s overweight, ugly, angry, and other bad stuff —things you can see from the news broadcast clips he has at his website:

http://www.militaryreligiousfreedom.org/weinstein2.html

Yes, while we are out trying to head off Armageddon or widespread terror, this guy chooses to focus on stuff that’s written on rifles —amazing, isn’t it?

I do not understand what drives this incredibly deluded, zeppelin-like REMF’ing insect.

Too late, the company has apparently agreed to stop putting the verse cites on their scopes sold to the military, and will issue a ‘kit’ to remove the verses from already-issued scopes. Thank God this craip didn’t result in rifles being recalled.

That’s to bad. It’s so stupid, I just can’t believe the lengths we will go, to appease the very people that are trying to kill us. They will rant and complain about everything and anything we do anyway. Remember your school bully? I remember kids trying to appease the one we had, and every school has one or more. He would just run rough shod all over those poor kids. The ones who stood up, he left alone.

I think it’s more about appeasing the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, MsLady. Some twisted folks, indeed.

I found out about them when I chanced upon a blog named ‘God’s Own Party?’ (google it, I will not link it). Talk about some sick fyuks.

I thought the whole idea of rifles was to kill the enemy, which is pretty much the opposite of making him happy. If our new goal is to make the enemy happy, perhaps we should stop using rifles and hand out chocolate chip cookies, instead.
