A Modest Response to Joe’s Immodest Proposal
President Biden and his supporters, ever eager to capitalize on human suffering, are once again calling for the disarming of America. The occasion of their renewed animus against the Second Amendment has been two shootings, both misreported in press accounts.
The Atlanta shootings are being promoted as the result of anti-Asian racism, when the true cause appears to like in the shooter's sense of guilt over his obsessive frequenting of massage parlors. Anyone who lives in an urban area today is aware of how "sex workers" are brought into an area, where they work in massage parlors or lingerie display shops or on the street and, after they have been arrested a certain number of times, are moved on to the next city. The fact that the workers in this industry are disproportionately members of certain ethnic groups might tell us something about the wisdom of allowing the country to be flooded by groups whose members engage in questionable activities.
The shootings in Boulder, as soon as anyone read the first accounts, had to have been committed by some protected minority group, probably Muslim. Inner city thugs are less likely, most people realize, to commit random crimes from which they reap no benefit. In this case, the shooter was a Muslim named Ahmad, one of the names of the Prophet.
Ahmad had been a high school wrestler. Schoolmates and family members have described him as crazy, paranoid, and dangerous. He was recently playing with a firearm in a relative's home. They took it away from him--as well they should have--but apparently gave it back to him.
Ahmad had been in trouble for fighting in school and told one classmate that if he beat someone up, he would simply lie about what happened and accuse his victim of having attacked him out of anti-Muslim bigotry. But surely in this great country of ours, no one would actually go so far as to fabricate a hate crime just to enhance his own self-esteem or private interest! Among Ahmad's complaints was that he couldn't get a girlfriend--no one apparently ever suggested he get a shave or dress like anything but a weasel--and he absolutely hated Donald Trump.
So, President Joe, here is my modest response, which I shall put forth in my campaign: Ban Muslims, not guns, especially Muslims with names like Mohammed and Ahmad and Ali. We might also designate the Never-Trumpers of both parties, spewing violent and irrational venom against a political leader whom nearly half of Americans supported, as the hate criminals they really are.
