” A 41-year-old Ohio man armed with several knives tried to buy a plane ticket with a fake ID before being gunned down by police after lunging at an officer with a blade outside the Columbus airport, police said.

  Hashim Hanif Ibn Abdul-Rasheed had parked illegally outside the ticketing terminal and was acting bizarrely as he tried to buy a ticket to an undisclosed location Wednesday afternoon. He showed off a woman’s ID to try and make the buy at one point before he was rebuffed, cops said.”

The Social Construction Of A Mass Shooting Epidemic

 

 

 

 

 

” The killings of 20 first-grade students and six adult staff members at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012, obviously constitutes a terrible, newsworthy event. But the news coverage did more than report the details of what happened at Newtown. It also sought to classify this incident as an instance of a larger problem. The initial news reports described what had happened as “the second deadliest school shooting,” “another mass shooting,” and a “mass killing” (all in stories in the next day’s New York Times) and as “the second deadliest shooting event in U.S. history” (The Washington Post). The Post’s website ranked the 12 “Deadliest U.S. shootings” (the earliest case on their list occurred in 1949), while the Mother Jones website added Newtown to its page “A Guide to Mass Shootings in America” (which included only cases from 1982 to 2012).”

 

    The categorization of “mass shootings” , “mass murders” , “workplace violence” or whatever other clever nomenclature that happens to be in vogue are decided upon by the media that reports on the stories and we would do well to remember that the present day media , the so-called mainstream anyway , are anything but dispassionate observers and reporters of fact .

 

” According to The New Republic, there were 70 mass shootings between 1982 and 2012, leaving 543 people dead. The magazine does not say whether this death toll includes the shooters, who often—but not always—also die. But let us assume that only the shooters’ victims were counted. (Amy Sullivan, the New Republic article’s author, says she believes that is the case.) That works out to about 2.3 incidents and 18 victims’ deaths per year. Last year was an unusually bad year, with 68 people killed in seven mass shootings—a terrible toll, to be sure. But in the context of some 2.5 million deaths from all causes last year, mass shootings, while dramatic, are simply not a major cause of death. And because these events are quite rare, and their number fluctuates from year to year, it is difficult to determine a clear trend. The horrors of 2012 made it easy from some commentators to claim that mass shootings were on the rise, but should there be fewer cases in 2013, it is unlikely that people will note that the problem is growing smaller.”

 

 

    As with most any news items today , how events are portrayed in the media is really more an issue of what particular ax the reporting organization has to grind than it is a fair illustration of the facts .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After Nidal Hasan Admitted Helping The Taliban, Can We Treat The Fort Hood Massacre As A Terrorist Attack?

 

 

 

” Hasan’s defense now makes it clear that this is how he considers his actions. Despite the best attempts to cover up his actions, he stated in open court that he had acted to aid the Taliban.

The judge read from his request for a continuance, seeking to confirm Hasan’s defense: that he acted “because death or grievous harm was about to be inflicted on the members of the Taliban and Mullah [Mohammed] Omar specifically by the people against whom you used deadly force.”

“That is correct,” Hasan said.

There is no longer any dispute about Hasan’s motives or affiliations. He was acting to aid the Taliban after corresponding with an Al Qaeda leader.”

 

 

   When do we cease this charade that is “political correctness” and start acknowledging the truth ? This cult of multiculturalism gets exposed for the fraud that it is at every turn by the perpetrator’s own words and yet we are to believe that religion has nothing to do with it … they are “disturbed individuals” , “disenfranchised youth” or “enraged employees” but never terrorists . 

     At what point to we recognize the cultural and societal mass suicide that is the Left’s moral relativism and realize that the proponents of radical Islam will stop at  nothing to achieve their plainly stated goal of a world-wide Caliphate ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

D.O.D. Says No Purple Heart For Fort Hood Victims – Nidal Hasan Wasn’t A Terrorist

 

 

 

” In 2009, radical Islamist Nidal Hasan screamed “Allahu Akbar” as he murdered 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. Afterwards, the military’s politically correct response almost defied belief. Rather than admitting that Nidal Hasan, who had exchanged more than 20 emails with Al-Qaeda recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki, was engaged in terrorism, the military labeled the attack “workplace violence.”

The Department of Defense is fighting tooth and nail against giving Purple Hearts to the survivors of Nidal Hasan’s ambush because the DOD claims it would effectively mean that Hasan is being declared a terrorist.”
