MARK LEVIN: Over the weekend, the president was speaking and, really, when he got to his politics it was just stomach turning. There he is, in the middle of that little town … and he named four instances in where there were, what, massacres? But he left one out. I immediately realized -- and my brother emailed me too -- what happened to Fort Hood? How come he didn't mention Fort Hood? How come Obama did not mention Fort Hood where 13 human beings were slaughtered and there were several survivors. Because, ladies and gentlemen, first of all, Fort Hood is a military enclave, it's a base. You can't have more control than that.

Number two, they had all kinds of rules of who can carry weapons and who can't there. And fortunately, a lot of men and women in uniform aren't allowed to carry weapons unless they're on duty. All kinds of gun control on that base.

But, number three, it had nothing to do with gun control. It had everything to do with political correctness run amok, costing the lives of 13 human beings.

DBrow ~ :” Plus the shooter yelled Allahu Akbar, so I am told, in that case of “workplace violence”. “

Fort Hood was an act of terrorism (religiously biased )
That is why he doesn’t want to address it , or make his religious brothers uncomfortable.

Fort Hood has been covered up because the liberals want us not to blame the Wahhabi sect of Sunni Islam. This is the same sect that killed 3000 at the WTC and the Pentagon. They number 10% of all of islam or roughly 100 million. The Government fears that if the basic beliefs of the Wahhabi sect are exposed that the American people will demand deportation of the million or so that are lurking near your schools and churches. Nidal Hassan was a Wahhabi practitioner in the mandate from Allah to kill all non believers.

Obviously there is a different standard administered between youths and adults.
Youths are thought to be innocent and pure .
Adults in the military are considered to be culpable and worthy as being targets in acts of terrorism .

I would not place Ft. Hood in the same category as Sandy Hook, Aurora, Wisconsin, Tuscon, Virginia Tech, or Columbine.

Ft. Hood was an act of terrorism. The others were the result mental illness and derangement, not ruling out demonic possession.

Perhaps you are correct in your categorical identification, but I do not agree. These events are always about control- control of free people.

A government can only require more freedoms from its subject population, it cannot not grant them more liberty (recall, after recognizing the social contrat bertween individuals is lacking of impartiality, a society grants an instituted government a portion of their natural and social rights and freedoms in order to allow interaction w/o requiring personal judgement on evil-doers by victims).

Hence, any bad event that evokes a response of “why doesn’t the government do something”? can only result in “okay, give us more of your essential liberties and indivudal freedoms and we’ll save you from yourselves”- the never-ending cycle of the fall from freedom into slavish, willing subjugation.

In the Bibilcal world view, this is the grand conflict bewteen good and evil, and the prince of the power of this world wants men to be enslaved by a government, any government, as that is the surest way to kill as many humans as possible (since many will dare to struggle) before they hear the good news of Christ’s sacrifice for all....

Yes, there is a grand conspiracy a foot, even if the players know it not...(but they do know, you can bet).

The US is the only nation where virtually unlimited ownership possession and access to firearms exists. The only way this nation will go under into the shadows of “make believe liberty and freedom” is to be disarmed first.

An Armed man must be persuaded, an unarmed man can be forced...

He did not mention it for the same reason no one on the left mentions it, military were the mind of a leftist the military is the devil..and the shooter was an Arab therefore he was justified in doing what he did

The point Levin is making is that it occurred on a military base that is completely controlled by the government. Everything that is going on within the fence and gates are the complete resposibility of the federal government, and still someone committed a spree killing. The motivation being the act is irrelavant to Levin’s point.

14 Human beings, counting the unborn baby, who was most assuredly human. The mother's last words when she was shot, according to eyewitness testimony at the Art. 32 hearing, were "My Baby, My Baby".

The same shot killed both her and her baby.
