DEMS IGNORE THREE STABBING DEATHS, SEIZE ON THREE SHOOTING DEATHS IN SANTA BARBARA
Breitbart ^ | 25 May 2014 | by AWR HAWKINS

Posted on 05/26/2014 2:39:22 AM PDT by kingattax

Many Democrats – Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) among them – have shamelessly attacked the NRA and pushed for more gun control in the wake of the heinous May 23 Santa Barbara attacks. To do this they have seized on three shooting deaths but completely ignored three stabbing deaths, although stabbing deaths are far more personal – requiring the killer to be very close to his victims.

On May 24 Breitbart News reported that attacker Elliot Rodger stabbed three people to death "in his residence" before getting into his car to shoot and kill three persons, wound seven others, and run down four others with his car.

After all these various forms of attack, Roll Call reports that Sen. Feinstein is "lamenting the 'stranglehold' the NRA has over gun laws" and Sen. Blumenthal is calling on Congress to take up the Senate's failed gun control bill and pass it.

Media outlets like CNN are right there with these senators, describing the heinous and criminal shooting and killing of three people as a "mass shooting" – a move which plays into the left's overall push to swell the number of reported "mass shootings" so those reports can then be used as leverage for more gun control.

Rodger did shoot and kill three people, and the fact that those three people are deceased is horrible. But he also took a far more personal action in stabbing and killing three people "in his residence" before he shot anyone, and the act of stabbing them in this way is savage.

Why aren't the three people who were killed with a knife important enough for Democrats to rally around?

If liberals win gun control, they WILL come after knives next.

Look at England as such an example. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

You can count on it every time. Democrats will capitalize like vultures on every shooting death, using it to further their agenda of disarming the public.

Or, killed with a car?

Because it's not the killing, it's the means that has them running around with their pants on fire.

The common thread that runs through all mass slayings is that they were committed by Progressives.

Liberals care nothing of death. Unless it’s the imminent threat of their own. Who was is who said recently - that garbage pile Conyers, or Dingell - that death is just a part of life? They and their dogma are so interchangeable anymore, I need a scorecard to keep up with who vomits what verbiage.

They were committed by mindless nutjobs that have been programmed. I truly believe these nuts have been under someone’s control and they go off when the “switch” is turned on. And those who control them are not democrats or republicans. They’re elites who control the democrats and the republicans. The way things have been going in this country nothing would surprise me anymore and I don’t trust anyone. Call me crazy.

He stabbed three asian males to death. But shooting three more people is somehow more serious.

"The three people found stabbed to death inside his apartment have been identified as roommates Chen Yuang Hong, 20, and George Chen, 19. A third man Weihan Wang, 20, may have been a visitor."

A couple of movies you might find interesting (now these are tinfoil or some will say. Nonetheless they are *movies*, of course).

“The Parallax View”

“Executive Action”

The original New York Times article referred to Rodger as a "gunman" in the headline, in the first paragraph, and in the second paragraph. (How about the infinitely more accurate descriptive term, "killer"?)

To quote South Park creator Matt Stone, "I really ******* hate liberals".

Because they don't help further the gun control agenda.

Sometimes I have to wonder which of these nutty groups, or what part of the current administration, is 'encouraging' people to shoot up schools, malls, etc. in order to force gun control on people that are completely innocent of any of these crimes in order to disarm the citizens. I know it's far out in conspiracy land but there are so many of these shootings since Obama came to office that it's hard to believe that they aren't somehow related or controlled by an agenda of some sort. How hard would it be to control the mind of somebody that is already 'disturbed'? All of the shooters end up dead, most by their own hand, after leaving pages and pages of notes on why they did it, but since they are dead nobody can ever get them to talk about it again. You can't tell me our government doesn't have the means or the capability of doing this sort of thing.

Just like President Obama pledging to fix the VA 7 years ago.....the liberal calls for legislation is only a ploy to enhance their power while painting a picture of doing “something”.

In fact, liberals love failed legislation as it can be used for to fundraise, demagogue, and campaign....there is never an intention to correct the root problem.

Meanwhile, the failures of gov’t mental health laws and the failures of gov’t law enforcement are ignored.

“Why aren’t the three people who were killed with a knife important enough for Democrats to rally around?”

Because they were the wrong color (not black), and the weapon didn’t fit The Plan. The media has ignored the white victims of the ongoing low-profile race war for decades; nothing new here.

The leftists can ban all of the guns and ammo if they want, but it wouldn’t do them any good. It’s far easier to obtain firearms in the US illegaly (ie: not documented by the government), than it is to obtain them legaly through government approved dealers.

But then again, it doesn’t really matter as this crazy kid has demonstrated that you can kill just as many people with knives and cars as you can firearms.

It isn't about guns and knives and Democrats and Republicans. It's about a real lot of young men from all backgrounds being seriously insane and incapable of respecting life.

Why not look at possible CAUSES.....war without end globally which devalues life, the negative impact of mind-altering prescribed meds, a culture that promotes violence and dysfunction, lives that are disconnected from ones surroundings, the constant barrage of stimuli from technology....

So many people aren't hinged to reality anymore. Taking away guns doesn't solve that problem. Either does people having enough guns to commit mass murders.

This lunatic killed more people with a knife and a car than were killed with a gun. The Left certainly doesn’t want to admit that divorce, therapists, mind-alterning prescription drugs, violent video games, and our over-sexualized secular society were to blame for another mass killing by a liberal’s spawn.

if your atheist father makes money by photographing the buttocks of women, the chances of your growing up normal are vastly diminished.

"Because they were the wrong color (not black), and the weapon didn’t fit The Plan."

"CHICAGO (STMW) – Five people were killed and at least 12 others have been wounded in shootings across the city since Saturday afternoon."

Plenty of black shooting victims this weekend in Chicago (plus 3 more at Black Bike Week in Myrtle Beach). More than half of homicides in the United States are committed by a small and readily identifiable sliver of population. The media avoids mention of this politically incorrect fact because it doesn't promote their socialist/liberal agenda -- which is to disarm the hoi polloi, not to keep people safe.

"Sen. Feinstein is "lamenting the 'stranglehold' the NRA has over gun laws"

So, Feinstein is saying that a majority of her colleagues are corrupt. That their votes are for sale. Sen. Feinstein, noted CCW carry permit holder back in the day that was very rare, ought to name names. Who among her colleagues have sold their votes.

Sen. Feinstein, if Senators sell their votes on this life and death issue, what else do they sell their votes for. Come on, name names so we can expel the corruptocrats from office.

I'd love to have the chance to question these fools, they wouldn't know what hit them.

Did they find the three heads of the stabbing victims in his car after he crashed? Were they flayed, doused with boiling water, and sexually tortured before they were beheaded? Or did the killer not live up to his musings in his manifesto? He performed everything else about like he planned.

Luckily for the "blond girls" was he was unable to get into their sorority house where he would murder and torture them all before escaping to carry out the rest of his mayhem.

Maybe the police are keeping the worst of the atrocities under wraps - the three "stabbings"? This guy was one evil demon.

“If liberals win gun control”

It looks like you understand that the term “gun control” is a radical far left euphemism.
Why don’t we start using the right words: Firearms Confiscation?
We must never forget that the expression `gun control’ is their camouflage for what they really want: firearms confiscation.

When you see the phrase, keep in mind what their ultimate goal is—they want a country in which only the military & police (and their security guards) are armed.

And you’re right about knives. Just as homosexual marriage will be followed by state-sanctioned pedophilia (SEE: Boy Scouts) bigamy and even bestiality (not shaking your head yet?) once they have achieved “gun control” they will come after knives.

It’s all for the greater good, comrade.

They will just force legal gun sales underground like drugs and cigarettes and in the process piss off Americans who want them for protection.
